CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on November 17th 2009

Check it out! We have a new CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK! This week, we chose ERIC because these chrome ic! berlin frames look so great on him!

Eric stopped in to the store a few times to make sure he chose the *perfect* frame. With some help from Mary R, he chose the Arnaud frame by ic! berlin. But Eric wasn’t the only one who became an Eye Spy customer, his wife and son both got new sunglasses!

There’s some truth to the saying “good things come to those who wait.”

Congratulations, Eric, you’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Hey, speaking of ic! berlin, we’re having an ic! berlin trunk show this weekend! We’ll have the ic! berlin collection as well as a special selection of 100+ Francis Klein frames! Oh. My. Goodness. This is going to be a great weekend!

The November Trunk Shows are here! Every Saturday in November we are hosting a trunk show…including IC! Berlin (November 21), Francis Klein (November 21), and Lafont (November 28). We will have the full collections including new styles you’ve never seen before…for one day only!!! For once, you’ll be looking forward to November in Chicago!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on November 9th 2009

Woo Hoo! Our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK this week was looking for a frame that would take her look into a funky new phase! Congratulations to SANDRA! Sandra wanted frames that would stand out in a crowd and show her personality with flare!


Perfect choice! Sandra chose this fantastic Anne et Valentin frame in red and silver. Anne et Valentin frames are known for not only being whimsical, but also well-made and strong! This pair is made with a stainless steel frame that makes these glasses light as a feather! Sandra is also wearing HOYA freeform lenses! This lenses are all kinds of WHOA, they provide a wider field of vision for distance, computer use, AND reading. Yes, I said it, three in one and they’re super easy to get used to wearing. Sandra will feel like Superwoman with super-sharp vision.

Eye Spy and Sandra, what a team!

So many frames to choose from! Mark your calendar! The November Trunk Shows are just around the corner! Every Saturday in November we’ll be hosting a trunk show from several of our lines including Theo (November 7), Anne et Valentin (November 14), IC! Berlin (November 21), Francis Klein (November 21), and Lafont (November 28). They’re going to bring the full collections including new styles you’ve never seen before!!!
