WHOO! It’s that time again! What time? Time to crown a new CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

This week, we chose DAVID!

David already had two frames from Eye Spy when he stopped in to check out some new styles. Lucky for him we had a gaggle of Theo Frames in the store and couldn’t wait to see him in these *amazing* blue (and brown!) Theos!

Hey, waitaminute, where’s the brown? Well that’s the best part of this frame (okay, 2nd best, the best is how BLUE this Theo frame makes David’s eyes look!). The front of the frame is this lovely slate blue, but the top is chocolate brown!

It’s always nice to find frames with personality.

David also chose to wear with the Hoya ID lens, which is a progressive lens that gives the wearer a wider field of vision. So walking up stairs won’t make him feel like he’s inside of some carnival trick house. Now, in his new Theo frames, he’ll have a smooth look, aesthetically and functionally.

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

Giving Thanks

Written by on November 26th 2009

Here at Eye Spy, we have a lot to be thankful for: awesome eyeglasses that surround us all day long, a funky and colorful work environment, and Dinkel’s right across the street!

But, today, what we are most thankful for are the awesome awesome customers–you are all so much fun to have around!

You make our hearts go ZING!

What we are second most thankful for are the new frames that have been arriving all week!

First, the Theo invasion:

Theo’s classic metal style that we all know and looooove.

And new Theo plastics! Absence does make the heart grow fonder!
It’s been a while since Theo has made plastic frames and, yow, are we happy they’re back!

Then, we received the Lafont frames for our Trunk Show this weekend! The frames will only be here for the weekend, so if you want to see hundreds of Lafonts in dozens of colors, put on you hat and gloves and come over to Eye Spy! (Pssst…The Lafont trunk show will be on Saturday, November 28, from 11-5pm.)

ooooooh. ahhhhhh.

Look at all the kids frames we’ll have in the store this weekend!
(This is maybe one fifth of the kids frames we’ll have for the trunk show!!!)

So much to love…..

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!

Whoo-Hoo! It’s time for our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK! Let me tell you, this week, it’s a real stunner!

Dewitt has *Great* taste in frames! He’s not afraid of wearing funky frames, whether it’s a yellow Anne et Valentin or these incredible blue Theo frames!

This early bird got the way cool and totally awesome new Theo frame.

When Dewitt came into the store, we had just received our new Theo stock, we hadn’t even put them out on the floor yet! But due to perfect timing, Dewitt was the first person to try this Theo frame on and he wasn’t about to let it go!

Great choice, Dewitt, these Theo frames look amazing!
