Clothes Mentor: Time to Splurge for the Holidays!

By  0 Comments

If you’re looking for an incredible holiday present for a special person, look no further than Clothes Mentor. A gift certificate to these clothing retailers means a thoughtful gift that offers so much more than your ordinary department store gift card.

“Come into the store to buy one of our gift cards and receive a present for yourself. A $25 gift card means you’ll get a $5 gift card for yourself or to give to your friend. Gift certificates come in any amount that you choose,” revealed Phyllis Lord, owner of the Overland Park, Kansas, Clothes Mentor. “People love shopping at our store because they love to have extra money to spend. A sweater that would retail in the department stores for $100 might be $18 to $22 at Clothes Mentor. That’s nearly an 80 percent savings.”

Shop in One Spot
 “You’ll find all of your favorite brands in one place at Clothes Mentor,” shared Lee Gardner, owner of the Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Clothes Mentor. “Our customers don’t have to go to the mall and shop countless stores. We have many designers and, incredibly, our offerings are always changing.”

Clothes Mentor is a women’s resale store focused on clothing in sizes 0-26, petites, plus-sizes and maternity. It’s your one-stop shopping experience, designed to save you money and time. The shops buy and resell better brand name and gently used items that are in style and in good condition. Business and casual, smart and stylish apparel, shoes, purses and accessories are stocked in easy-to-access and clearly organized segments to make your shopping experience superb.

While you’re completing your holiday gift list with certificates from Clothes Mentor, don’t forget to splurge on yourself. All locations carry special holiday outfits designed to dazzle and sparkle. “Clothes Mentor is a less expensive way to get that one-time outfit for a holiday party. We’re always stocked in holiday wear and get more in every day,” shared Phyllis. “The clothing runs the gamut from a girls’ luncheon gift exchange to cocktail parties to even the toniest events. And don’t forget to pick up shoes, a clutch and jewelry to accessorize. Our personal shoppers can help you put that outfit together.”

Personalized Attention
The personal shoppers at Clothes Mentor are incredibly popular. The shoppers are solely focused on customers, working one-on-one with them. “People are surprised by how enjoyable the personal shopper experience can be, and the process is so simple,” stated Lee. “An online questionnaire gets things started, and the personal shopper reviews a customer’s form and contacts them to set up an appointment. Or the customer can call ahead and set an appointment to receive personal attention. When they arrive, the personal shoppers will have suggested outfits pulled together for them.”

“Customers love our personal shoppers. The online questionnaire tells us about their body type and the type of clothes they want: business, casual or special occasion. Or maybe they’ve lost weight and don’t know what to wear,” remarked Phyllis. “Our personal shoppers will help them find the clothes that fit their needs. This service is absolutely free for our customers.”

Maybe you’re looking for extra money for the holiday season. Clothes Mentor will pay you cash on the spot for designer brands and other high-end fashions. The Clothes Mentor’s cutting-edge computer system generates the price that will be paid. “If this is your first visit, we’ll explain the process and set up an account. If you’re selling clothes, we’ll give you a time frame that we’ll need to review the clothes,” noted Lee. “We’ll either pay you cash on the spot or give you customer credit, which can include a bonus. Details can vary, but we’ll explain what’s being offered that day at that location.”

“Every day we pay cash to purchase your better, brand-name, gently used women’s fashions and accessories,” promised Phyllis. “Unlike a consignment shop, where you may wait weeks to receive payment, we pay you immediately for items that we buy.”

Being Social
Because stock can change at moment’s notice, the Clothes Mentor locations rely on social media tools to alert customers to new items or specials. “Our social marketing is dynamic. Every store has a Facebook page to post new products or share news of special events. VIP texting is another service to keep customers informed,” commented Lee. “But if something’s posted, you better move fast because many items can be quickly snapped up.”

Do yourself a favor and stop by the Clothes Mentor to check off your holiday shopping list. The amazing selection of clothing, shoes, jewelry and handbags will have something for nearly everyone, and you’ll be smiling at the savings. Your holiday shopping experience will be greatly improved by visiting one of the KC-metro Clothes Mentor locations.
