Mom’s the Word On Saturday, May 12th!

Written by on April 14th 2012

Celebrate Mom’s Day with us on Saturday from 11 AM-5 PM! We will be having an Oliver and Claire Goldsmith Trunk Show…as well as massages, mimosas and munchies, just for mom!

Do you need to get a present for mom, but can’t figure out what to get her? Or maybe she wants to get you a present! Lucky duck! Our rep from two of our vintage-inspiried collections, Claire Goldsmith and Oliver Goldsmith, will be on-hand. In her trunks, she will have of glasses upon glasses in every shape in color…and sunglasses that will make anyone look like a movie star! On Saturday only from 11-5 PM.

 

Claire Goldsmith is the debut collection of vintage-inspired frames from the great-granddaughter of the iconic eyewear designer Oliver Goldsmith. For three generations, Oliver Goldsmith combined beautiful materials, acetates and hinges with simple and classic style, to create some of the most iconic eyewear in the world. Claire re-established the company in 2005 after a 20 year hiatus, to continue the legacy of the Goldsmith family.

Oliver Goldsmith has been a family-run business for over 80 years. Originally, dress designers approached Goldsmith to create frames to complement their collections. Grace Kelly, Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Nina Simone and Audrey Hepburn made OG synonymous with stars and style. The rest is history. Now you can get your mum a pair of OG sunglasses and make her look like a star too;-)

Our massage therapist, Adreana Maurer, will be giving powerful back massages from 12-3 PM. In order to relax before your massage, have a mimosa or two…

See you soon!

Sale Extended Through February 7th!

Written by on February 2nd 2012

Our January sale was a hit, as usual! We still have a ton of frames left, though, so…

we are extending the sale for one week only!!

We love to be able to offer our unique, handmade frames at 25%, 50% and 85% off every year for one month only! This enables us to order crazy funky frames all year long without worrying so much if they will sell or not. For some reason, they usually sell, but if they don’t…you can find the fabulous frames on our sale table. In addition, we order in a ton of discontinued, but still spectacular specs from our favorite designers. These frames are always 50% and just in-store for the month of our sale. At the end of the sale, these frames go back home:-(

All of our sale frames are final sale….and we do not haggle over prices.  Our designers only allow us to have a sale once-a-year, so take advantage of this last week of the sale to make your final decisions!

Take home this beautiful Francis Klein Moi frame before it is too late!!
