Employee Picks: The Claire Goldsmith Irwin

Written by on November 7th 2010

This week, the Specs Therapist (Hey, that’s me!) chose the Claire Goldsmith Irwin as her pick of the week.

The Specs Therapist (Still me!) loves the dramatic shape of this otherwise subtle cat-eye. The rounded lens exaggerates the angles at the temples, which makes any lady wearing it look more vibrant and alert.

Also: totally digging the tortoise design, which gives the frame light and darkness and looks a little different from any angle.

Love this frame. Love that it’s sturdy and studious with a wink for the mischief makers among us.

We are giddy with anticipation for our trunk shows every Saturday in November, which will feature all of the new frames from our favorite lines! Hundreds of new frames, in every style and color imaginable…we’re getting dizzy just thinking about it! Come in this weekend for the Oliver and Claire Goldsmith Trunk Show on Saturday, November 13 from 11-5!

And if, during the month of November, you bring canned food for donation to Lakeview Pantry, we will take $25 off your complete Rx eyewear purchase.

At Eye Spy, we try to keep a wide variety of frames available, so we never have to say, “I just don’t have anything for you.” We’ve got something for everyone, for real.

Sometimes, a customer will like a frame that we have in stock, but they may want to try another color. That’s what happened when Ryan came into the store and tried on the Claire Goldsmith Carter frame. He wanted to try something darker than the colors we had in stock. No problem, we ordered the frame in two colors so Ryan could try two versions of the frame.

Ryan chose the smokescreen frame, and there’s no denying it was the right choice, this frame looks GREAT!

We liked the black Claire Goldsmith frame that Ryan passed on so much that we decided to keep in in the store. Well, wouldn’t you know it, not two days later Julia came into Eye Spy looking for a frame *exactly* like the Claire Goldsmith frame in black. FATE!

Destiny! cannot be denied here:

Julia looks FANTASTIC in her new frame!

Isn’t it lovely when two people can make the same frame suit their own personality and style so well?!

Yowee, that’s why we love this eyewear biz.

Mom’s the word on May 8th! Save the date for our Mother’s day Specs and Sunglasses show featuring Anne et Valentin lunettes and La Loop accessories from 11-5 on Saturday, May 8th. We’ll also have free massages from 1-4 and mimosas and munchies all day!

This week our Customer of the Week! is ANNIE!!!

Annie’s brother is a long-time customer of Eye Spy and he sent his sister to us for some brand new specs. Annie walked in the door and said “I want awesome new glasses.” She had us at “awesome.”

Immediately, we knew the perfect frame for her. After trying on a few super-fun frames, including a purple Anne et Valentin frame that came in a close second, Annie’s heart returned to these Claire Goldsmith frames–it was fate!

This is the first frame she tried on, and boy, does she look great! We’ve got to pat ourselves on the back for this one, sometimes a person walks in the store and we get all Matchmaker Matchmaker and we just know that one frame in the store that belongs with a particular person. It’s like Cupid’s arrows all over the place in here.

Love at first Sight!

We just love how these Claire Goldsmith frames are so big and fun, but the first thing you see in this photo are Annie’s bright blue eyes and welcome smile!

Congratulations, Annie! You’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Too many flex dollars, not enough time? At Eye Spy, we accept flex dollars and will make sure that you find quality handmade glasses as well as the best possible lenses for your prescription. Just ask and we’ll be happy to help you find an *awesome* new pair of specs!
