Happy Anniversary…to us! October marks 126 years of Stage Stores; and this past summer, while writing and designing the Anniversary Sale catalog, our creative team wanted to do something special, something different, something FUN! Then we got an idea—why not put great guests like YOU in the spotlight (aka the front cover!). So on a sunny Saturday morning during the Black Friday in July Sale, we set up a photo booth at the Katy, TX Palais Royal and chatted with shoppers about what keeps them coming back. Here’s what a few of them had to say.
“I just started shopping at Palais Royal the last couple years, and I was really impressed with the Clinique counter because I don’t like going to the mall to wrestle for my makeup,” laughed Sharon. “I’m also impressed with the selection of French Toast uniforms. They hold up all year, and they’re very feminine for my daughters. The ones we bought today have little jewels on them! The girls got set for the school year today.”
“My favorite brands are Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Nine West…” Oruonye paused a beat, and her eyes lit up as more faves came to mind. “I also love Kensie, Valerie Stevens, Levi’s, Gloria Vanderbilt. Last week, I bought some Gloria Vanderbilt shorts in every color, because if the shoe fits, buy it in every color! The people here are really helpful and sweet, and it’s nice having the juniors’ and misses’ departments together, because I’m in that in-between stage. It makes it a lot easier to shop.”
“I like the designer clothes, the sales and the people. I always go to the same cosmetics person. It’s just so comfortable to shop here because it’s not crowded and you don’t have to fight the aisles like other stores. I’m here at least once a week. My credit card doesn’t like it, but hey!”
