Our Customer of the Week this week is Eileen!

Eileen has been a loyal Eye Spy Customer for years! The other day, she came in to the store to have new lenses put in some of her own fantastic Eye Spy frames. While she was here, she wanted to look for something NEW, something NOW, something MODERN and COOL!

Well, she hit it out of the park with this one. Eileen’s new Theo frame is so fresh and lively, it just brightens the whole room when she’s around.

Way to go, Eileen! You’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

This week, our Customer of the Week is DANTE!!!

Dante came in to Eye Spy a while back looking for new frames. He could tell that this Theo Eyewitness frame was the one, but….. he wanted a second opinion.

So, we took some pictures, emailed them to Dante and he was able to show his friends what he (and we) hoped would be his new specs.

Well, first instincts are usually right and Dante’s friends (wisely) supported his choice!


Check it out! Dante looks awesome in his new Theo Eyewitness frame!

It’s finally here! The August Sunglass Sale is in effect! For the entire month of August every single pair of sunglasses is on sale from 10%-30% off! Come on in and get that frame you’ve been dreaming of!!!

SUMMER FUN!

Written by on July 15th 2010
We’ve had a blast over the past couple of weeks, helping our super-awesome and totally fun customers find some truly fantastic frames!
So much fun, in fact that we have not one, not two, but THREE, yes THREE Customers of the Week!
First up is Sissie:

The Optician Magician helped Sissie find these ic! berlin frames and they fit her perfectly!

When Sissie found Eye Spy, she had never felt 100% comfortable in her glasses. But, when she picked up her new frames, she told us that our doctor (the awesome Karen Squier, OD) made her feel really comfortable and was thorough with the exam. We’ve always known that Dr. Squier is one of the most patient and thorough doctors around, but it was really nice to hear that from a customer! We are so happy that we were able to help Sissie find an ic! berlin frame and Hoya ID lenses that makes her feel comfortable and confident! Hooray!
Next we have Diane:
The Specs Therapist is all about helping our customers go on vacation in style.
Diane tried on a few pairs of sunglasses, but when she found these Lafonts, we knew, these were the ones! Alas! Diane was about to go on vacation and needed the sunglasses ASAP! We did our best and made them as quickly as possible and just days before her trip, Diane was able to pick up her brand new, absolutely fantastic, Lafont sunglasses!

And last, but certainly not least, we have Larissa:

Our Opticianista is a matchmaker like no other when it comes to Theos.

I feel like this is a Cinderella situation. Sometimes there is a frame in the store that is so remarkable and awesome that it is just waiting for the right person. The frame is just waiting for that perfect fit and personality and when it happens, WOW! Magic. Bells. Angels singing. Rainbows sparklings. Stars shining. Larissa and this Theo frame go together like rama lama lama ke ding a de dinga dong.

Hooray for our customers! They’ve made this hot hot summer SUPER COOL!


You know what else is cool? SUNGLASSES! The Eye Spy annual sunglass sale is only weeks away. For the entire month of August every pair of sunglasses in the store will be on sale! Come on in and get that frame you’ve been dreaming of!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on June 15th 2010

What perfect timing! Just a few days ago, we were waxing rhapsodic about Theo and this weekend, Christopher picked up his brand new Theo Eyewitness frames!

How cool are these?!

Christopher found a pair in the store, but our frame was mostly black. He wanted something a little brighter, so we ordered two colors for him to try, he chose the silver and black, and wow-oh-wow, do they look great!

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

Don’t forget that Sunday is Father’s Day!
Show your dad you care
with a nifty new pair of sunglasses!

"Theo’s out there living it up, doing a little earth shaking somewhere."

Written by on June 11th 2010
I, the Specs Therapist, have had a crush on Theodore Huxtable since I was five. So when I started working at Eye Spy and saw that there was a line named “Theo,” I was immediately lost in love. No matter that the name is pronounced “Tay-Oh,” or that the name represents an anagram of one of the designers, Patrick Hoet’s, last name. The name “Theo” always has and always will represent perfection to me.


So, what’s the deal with this eyewear line called Theo? Why do they make such funky glasses? And where the heck did they get the idea to make such unique frames and designs? Let me tell you:

Theo was founded by two opticians, Wim Somers and Patrick Hoet. They first displayed their designs at the Paris eyewear tradeshow, Silmo, in 1989.
Their designs represented new ideas in eyewear. Rather than being just a necessity, their designs turned glasses into works of art. And beyond that, they became a window for expression for glasses wearers, starting with the more adventurous and moving to a wide range of faces and personalities the world over!
Theo continued with their avant-garde aesthetic in their Eyewitness line. While the main Theo line maintained unique and creative designs, Eyewitness went the extra step. All eyewitness frames have an asymmetrical design and continue to push boundaries in eyewear. In a fashionable and flattering manner, I might add.
Theo continues to pursue their goal of creating new and exciting designs, partnering up with designers Cristoph Broich and Tim Van Steenbergen on sunwear lines. Theo designs keep surprising and delighting. It’s a love affair with no end in sight!


And do you know what?

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on June 8th 2010

Christine is one of our favorite customers because she has a classic, but adventurous sense of style when it comes to glasses! She just has a face made for frames, no matter what she puts on, it looks like each frame was made just for her (lucky!).

But, she recently decided that she needed a frame that was a little more “tame” for those occasions when hot pink just would not do. Still, she wanted her personality to be able to shine. As Christine shows, it’s possible to be adventurous and fun, while still wearing a frame that showcases clean lines and top-notch design:

YOWZA! Christine looks awesome in her new Theos!

What makes this Theo frame perfect for what Christine wanted is that it’s pretty and light, but it has a secret:

Yup, the top of the frame is electric blue! Just that touch of color not only adds some fun and whimsy to the frame, but it also lightens the look of the frame. So when Christine is wearing this, she can still maintain a classic, yet airy feel.

Great choice Christine! There’s no doubt that you are the CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on February 14th 2010

I am often asked, “How do you choose the Customer of the Week?”

The answer is a complicated formula that looks kind of like this:
But without the 1.
This week, our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK is Marny!!!
Marny loved the shape of this Theo frame, but wasn’t sure about the colors that we had in the store. No problem, we were able to go online and access the Theo frame catalogue where we could show Marny the many (many many) colors available for this frame. We chose two colors and ordered the frames in so Marny could try them on before making a final decision on her awesome new specs!
It’s like Goldilocks, but with eyeglasses. Because this frame is JUST RIGHT
Congratulations, Marny! You’re our Customer of the Week!
