Every Day is Tag-A-Licious – More Than 300 New Items in Just the Past Week and a Half – Many others 20-60% Off

Well “new” is a loaded word in the resale business. Let’s say, to us. Most I have recently procured and some are from the inventory I purchased with the store. Many of the later are blessed with deep markdowns.

The front window celebrates the new pricing program at reFresh Boutique. We will be cycling out inventory on a regular basis using a traditional consignment store price reduction model. This means that items that are on the floor 90+ days are reduced 60%, 60+ days are reduced 40% and 30+ days are reduced 20%.

In the picture above “the girls” inexplicably have their backs turned to the window. Cheeky beasts. Not sure why they’re being so shy, but I’ll show you just a couple.

Hangers Are Liars — Never Trust Them

reFresh Boutique is bedecked for fall and that means the beautiful jewel tones, rich umbers and reds are painting the racks of sweaters, dresses, skirts, jackets and more.

This lovely dress below is a classic example of why you simply must try on an outfit to know its true worth. This is a 3.1 Phillip Lim designer dress (Size 6, $195). On the hanger it looks like a sack, but it comes to life on our beautiful model. Take it casual or dress it up. You could put a belt with it, but I wouldn’t. It has a way of accentuating the curves of a woman’s body that needs no assistance.

About the Model

Leicie (prounouced lacey) Piscitelli is a sweetheart who loves fashion and hopes to make it her career. She is the most beautiful kind of beauty in that she has no clue at all that she is indeed beautiful. She is kind, soft spoken and a real treasure to work with.  Thank you, Leicie.

How Clothes Become A Part of the reFresh Boutique Family – OH! And a Gorgeous Coach Bag for Spring

People always ask me if there is anything new and I always answer, “There’s always something new.” I’ve received and placed on the sales floor over 230 items since the first of April. The boutique comprises a somewhat eclectic family. Who might you see on any given visit? And these are just the ones that walked in this month — so far.

reFresh is working diligently to upgrade the quality of fashion we offer. A customer commented, out of the blue, the other day that they noticed the difference. That makes me smile – – big time.

Just in time for spring, this gorgeous Coach bag.

Flash Flash Flash – Ahh The Joys of a Live Model

Time for a break from my avatar as the reFresh model. Ashleigh Lee is the Fashion Merchandising Intern at the boutique.  Her time here is nearly through and I will miss her indeed. We took a break from tagging, bookkeeping and . . . tagging . . . to shoot some pictures.

Thank you, Ashleigh for all that you’ve brought to reFresh this past month. I wish you the very brightest future.
