“I don’t believe in those theories about a certain style suiting a certain shape of face. Life is too short to worry about such things. If you find a shape you like, have it.”

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

Written by on March 8th 2009
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!
