I don’t remember the last time I was this excited about a store opening!
Style Encore is a women’s clothing resale shop in Eagan and their GRAND OPENING is this Thursday, May 29th starting at 10:00am and lasting throughout the weekend. It’s located at 1960 Cliff Lake Road, Suite 125. There will be TONS of great giveaways and events that you won’t want to miss.
I was invited to preview the shop before its official grand opening and sell some of my own clothes – for CASH!
Style Encore is owned by the same company that owns Once Upon a Child, Plato’s Closet, Play It Again Sports and Music Go Round. And it works the same way – you can buy used, quality items and sell yours for cash on the spot!
After doing a sweep of my closet and trying on everything I owned that I hadn’t worn in a while (I didn’t realize how much I had until I took it all out!), I found a bunch of clothes to bring in to see how much I could sell.
I visited the store with my 3-year-old and met with Mary who told me about the shop and told me I could get $25 for 7 items I brought in (yay!). Mostly what they bought were name-brand clothes like J. Crew and Eddie Bauer. I had some other clothes in older styles that they couldn’t buy but I was happy to sell what I did!
I toured the shop, which until Thursday is only open for buying, not sales, and had a very hard time not being able to yet buy dozens of stylish, quality items that I fell in love with!
Mind you, I’m frugal, and am typically fine with fashions from the thrift store which are often good, but I was very impressed with the selection and the prices, which are up to 70% off retail. They also had some new items including jewelry and some cosmetics. I will definitely be shopping here!
Check out their website for a LONG list of great grand opening giveaways and events they’re hosting. You can win free gift certificates, or just come in for a free chair massage, and more!
A few things to note:
- Style Encore can buy any seasonal clothing year-round (sweaters in summer, shorts in winter).
- They can’t buy lingerie, even if it’s new. (I had some new Victoria’s Secret lingerie they couldn’t buy.)
- Top items they’re looking to buy are handbags and jewelry.
- They have all sizes – I saw petite through XXL.
- They have sale days throughout the year and you can stay updated by joining their email list or following them on Facebook.
