CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK

Written by on March 14th 2009

It’s that time again!

This week, our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK is Barbara B !


Barbara came into the store to try on frames and didn’t find exactly what she wanted in our stock. But a little thing like “inventory” doesn’t stop us. We contacted Anne et Valentin and asked them to send us a frame that we thought would look great on Barbara (they will send a frame for any customer to try on for a small deposit). Barbara tried on the frame, liked it, and ordered lenses.

The frame fits Barbara *perfectly!* The color makes her eyes look so so blue! And the shape! It’s so unique, but on Barbara, it looks natural.
Congrats to Barbara, our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!!

Gonna have the trunks, Theo trunks. Frames like "what?! what?! what?!"

Written by on March 8th 2009
THEO TRUNK SHOW
and
MAKEOVER PARTY
this Saturday, March 14th!
Theo is a great line. Their frames fit a variety of faces and personalities!

We love our Theos!

It’s the perfect line to have in the store during our Makeover Party! Why? Well, let me tell you: When we tell you it’s makeover time, we don’t mean we want to change your look to the point that even your mother wouldn’t recognize you. No no no. We want your frames to highlight your already awesome features and we want them express another side of you that doesn’t get out very often. What better way to do that than with a funky pair of Theos?!

I know you’re asking and scratching your head about one thing: What in the world is a “trunk show?”
I’ll tell you, but you may need to sit down to absorb all of this awesomeness: A Trunk Show is when the representative from the company brings the entire collection into the store! You can try on any shape in any color…and every frame comes in 8 colors!! The representatives travel all over the country (and Canada!) so we really like to make the most of it when they’re in town.
So stop by the store on Saturday, March 14th from 12-5pm and check out the THEO TRUNK SHOW! Get yourself all done up nice with a FREE MAKEOVER! and relax with some wine and cheese courtesy of your neighborhood opticians!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK

Written by on March 5th 2009

Congratulations to JODY, our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!


Jody normally sports a really fantastic and architectural pair of Theos. When she stopped by the store last month, we chose a frame that was a little more subtle, but still really fun and expressive of Jody’s amazing personality. Lookin‘ good, Jody!

Jody’s friend, Heidi, brought her into the store to look at our funky eye wear. If you have a friend you think would dig our frames, send them in to the store! With your referral, your friend receives $25 off their purchase* of a complete pair of glasses (frame and lenses) and you receive $25 your next purchase* of a complete pair of glasses at Eye Spy! It’s like really lovely optical fashion karma.

*one discount per purchase

Francis Klein Trunk Show this weekend!

Written by on February 26th 2009
Whoo! We received our new Francis Klein frames today! 11 beautiful, bejeweled frames joined the Eye Spy family this afternoon and we couldn’t wait to try them on:

I really wanted to be like Scrooge McDuck and fill a room with Francis Kleins and just swim around in them all. day. long.

We also met the new American representative for Francis Klein, she brought their new frames into the store for us to ooh and aah over. We’ll have these frames in-store through Sunday, so if you want to try out some of the newest of the new Francis Kleins, stop by for an impromptu

Francis Klein TRUNK SHOW
this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ONLY!

AND

Eye Spy has decided to start a new tradition! Every week, we’ll select a customer as our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK! This week, we selected Lucia Frausto because her green Francis Kleins look a-ma-zing on her!

This girl has great taste!

The frame has green feathers embedded in the frame and the color suits Lucia so well! This is her second Francis Klein frame–our kinda gal!

I am soooo into BLUE

Written by on January 24th 2009

Oh dear, it’s not even Valentine’s Day yet and I am so head over heels in LOVE!

No bouquet is complete without a pair of Theos.

I looked around me the other day and found myself surrounded by beautiful BLUE frames!

Ambushed by beauty.

All shapes and sizes!

You can show me a round any time!

With rhinestones!
Without rhinestones!

Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?…YES!

Plastic!

Titanium!
Stainless steel!

Go ahead and grant me three wishes, but I swear to gosh, my dreams have come true and they are BLUE!

IC! BERLIN Trunk show this weekend!

Written by on November 7th 2008

What is a trunk show? you ask. Well let me tell you…

Every year, Alissa invites our designers to show off their new collections to our customers, before they’re available in the store! Their representatives bring in cases filled with every frame in the collection-in every color.

What’s special about November is that they bring along the brand-sparkling new collection! It’s like getting a sneak peak at the future! It’s like the funkiest, hippest, coolest, most awesomest time machine ever!

Last week we had Grotesque and Ray-Ban in the store and we had so much fun trying on at all of the beautiful colors and shapes both companies offer. BTW, that’s why i love eyeglasses so much…they are so easy to try-on! You don’t have to change your clothes, bring socks or high heels, blah, blah, blah.

This weekend, we will have IC! Berlin in the store and, let me tell you, they hit it out of the park. Recently, they won an award for their new designs and for one day, we will have them here at Eye Spy!

(Sean loves IC! Berlin)

IC! Berlin makes sturdy, strong frames out of stainless steel. They have a patented hinge design that makes the frame virtually unbreakable. But the best part (in my opinion) about IC! Berlin is that the design is subtle and sophisticated while still staying super funky in some styles and classic in others. So gosh darn cool.

Come on in on Saturday, November 8 from 10-6 to check out the new IC! Berlin collection! And if you would like a private one-0n-one appointment on Sunday the 9th, hurry up and give us a call before it’s too late!

Anniversary Party!

Written by on October 31st 2008


We’re 10 years old!

holy cow…time flies when you are having fun! we love helping people pick out awesome glasses in fun shapes and colors…i guess we are having so much fun, that time has just slipped right by. we have consistently carried funky, handmade frames, and try to be as helpful and honest as we can. the only real big changes we have made over the years are, updating the interior of the store a bit, and trying to reuse, reduce and recycle everything in sight! sometimes i drive everyone crazy, re-using paper, not using plastic bags, using cloth napkins, etc., etc….but it’s worth it!

we partied on 10/10 from 10-10 to celebrate…along with eating yummy cupcakes from Bleeding Heart Bakery, and making a few toasts with our customers and friends. mary did a great job decorating the store! we all had our party clothes on…..and as you can see, we couldn’t resist decorating for Halloween too:-) BOO!
