Today I decided to check out the shopping scene in Huntington village. As I walked down Main Street, I found this cute boutique with gorgeous clothes displayed in the window. When I went inside, I prepared myself to find expensive prices to match the look of the clothing. I was shocked to find that every item in this store was under $100!
Towne boutique is a private label only-store with gorgeous one of a kind clothing. The owner, Sallyann Russo, decided to sell private label clothing in order to pass along the savings to her customers and to have unique items.
Sally has worked in the garment industry for over 30 years. She spent 17 of those years running a retail store in Brooklyn called Threadz. Threadz was very expensive and sold only high end designer brands. When the recession hit in 2003, sales started to decline and Sally knew it was time to close the doors. She continued working in the fashion industry by becoming a buyer for Lesters. After working in that position for 5 years, Sally had the itch to own a store again and opened Towne boutique.
Towne boutique was created with the concept that expensive looking clothing doesn’t need to cost a fortune. I love this concept because to me there is nothing worse than finding a beautiful piece of clothing and then being disappointed with a price that is not justified. The best way to shop is to be able to afford everything you want and have a guiltless experience. I want to focus on the clothing, not the price tag!
I wound up buying two outfits that are perfect for this time of year. One is a faux fur coat that I fell in love with the minute I saw it. The colors are so vibrant and add a fun pop of color to a black going out look. I paired the coat with a choker style top and a black jean bottom. The second outfit is more casual and for everyday wear. It is a black and oatmeal jacket with a faux fur hood. I paired this jacket with a black turtleneck and skinny jeans. Most of the pieces I purchased were on sale and I spent under $300 for both looks!
In addition to already offering amazing prices, Towne boutique is offering LI Fashionable Foodie readers 20% off their ENTIRE purchase! This offer cannot be combined with any in-store promotions.
