Virtually Indestructible

Written by on August 20th 2010
Yesterday, one of our favorite customers came in to Eye Spy with an emergency.
She had run over her ic! berlin Nan frame with her car:

This is after 20 minutes of repair work…
Our Specs Therapist (me) didn’t bat an eye when she saw the twists and bends in the metal.
Our customer had to run to a meeting at work and, while she was away, the Specs Therapist carefully and patiently returned the Nan to her previous glory:


Now, the Specs Therapist isn’t going to take all the credit here. You see, ic! berlin makes incredible frames. Absolutely magical frames. That can take just about anything one can throw at them. Really, truly, AWESOME frames. And those lenses? Trivex. Impact resistant, UV protected, and STRONG.
And as a side note, Eye Spy also carries Mykita frames which are just as durable and well-made! The original designers from ic! berlin started Mykita to bring to market a new and improved (!) hinge and designs. Come on by and see them both.

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!!!

Hooray! Spring is here and so are new sunglasses!

We’ve started to receive some of the frames that the Queen of Specs ordered while she was at the big trade show last week!

Hey guys, let’s have a beach party. I’ll bring the Ruffles, you bring the diet coke and lime.
Did someone say party?
Gasp! It’s the ic! berlin gang! They’re so cool! Do you think they’ll invite us to the beach bonfire? Swoon!

Ahhh Spring!

And a reminder–for the whole month of April, Eye Spy is celebrating a GREEN SCENE. If you ride your bike or the CTA to Eye Spy, you get 10% off a pair of Rx specs. If you donate an old pair of glasses, you receive $25 off a new pair of Rx frames! So come on by and celebrate a greener earth with Eye Spy!

Getting to know you….

Written by on December 14th 2009

Check out this cool article about Ralph Anderl, managing director of ic! berlin

Hey Ralph, what’s up?

It’s pretty nifty to read the story behind the company. Ralph is the guy to thank when you accidentally sit on, run over, step on, or sleep in your ic! berlins—and they don’t break!
Now I do, yes, thank you very much!

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!

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!

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!

This week it’s all in the family with our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK, Lael ! In May, his wife, Eugenie, was named our Customer of the week for her amazing luck in finding a wonderful pair of Francis Klein sunglasses on the very day they arrived in the store.

Lael had similar luck a couple of years ago with a pair of IC Berlin glasses. The IC Berlin brand has been good to Lael and when he came in to the store for a new eye exam, he knew he wanted to stick with the durable and stylin’ IC Berlin frames!

Of course, being a man of impeccable taste (he is married to Eugenie after all) Lael chose one of the newest and, if I do say so myself, awesomest IC Berlin frames in the store.

Lucky guy.

Nice choice, Lael, and congratulations on being our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Just in case you dropped your chopstick…

Written by on June 7th 2009

I just came across a photo of IC!Berlin frames being used in a, well, creative manner. We have always told our customers how durable IC!Berlin frames are, referencing real-life incidents…such as the time a customer inadvertently got his IC!Berlin’s run over by a car and the frames were not damaged at all!! But this photo just proves how useful IC!Berlin’s really are….and how much extra time some people have on their hands!

So, remember…if you drop one of your chopsticks on the ground and can’t find another set, just take off your IC!Berlin’s, snap off the temples….and dig in. Delicious!
