What’s New at reFresh Boutique Today?

reFresh Boutique

Over 250 new items on the reFresh Boutique floor since January 1st

Now that’s a happy start to the new year. Even more exciting is that there are a large number of really beautiful pieces — far too many to ever photograph and present. So, I’ll go with a select few of my favorites. Sadly the photos don’t do any of these gorgeous, like-new pieces justice. There is far more to see and certainly more variety in prices, colors and sizes than the surprisingly Earth-toned colors I seem to have collected below. You should see my closet.

Pop in to reFresh Boutique and check out the new additions. I’ll be adding more pictures.

New Price Tags Make Shopping Easier

New Price Tags

To ensure that pricing is consistent and accurate, we have adopted a new tagging system.  You can see at a glance the designer, the size, what it retails for and the markdown timetable.  If you know what day it is, you know the price. Thanks go to my daughter Kayley for figuring out how to make our system do this.  I knew it could, but couldn’t quite get the how.

Well here’s the grand unveiling and I have pictures explaining the new price tags  throughout the store.

Below is a diagram explaining each part of the tag

No more tacky stickers. Some remain and if you find them they are all 50% off. They will be replaced over time.

Then, the fabric is layered over a solid background or lining so that the missing fibers create a translucent effect. The technique debuted in France It truly came into its own in the 1990s with appearances in My Fair Lady and the Royal Ballet. For more information, take a quick peek at Wikipedia.

Did You Know?

Max Raab was born into the clothing business in the 20s, apprenticing at his father’s side, but later left the business expressing concerns over the quality and lack of style of the garments. He then moved on to making tailored shirts for women, after observing college co-eds opting for men’s shirts on campus. Throughout the 60s he became synonymous with the preppie style with his venture, The Villager clothing company.
The film industry caught his eye and he purchased the rights to A Clockwork Orange and was later named as Executive Producer by Stanley Kubrick. He went on to produce several other notable films before returning to the fashion industry and establishing J. G. Hook in 1974. He grew it into a $100 million company and later sold it.
Fashion moguls can follow many interesting paths on their journey. Who knew a little red coat could have such an exciting history?
