Shopping at Revolution is addicting.
I love the warm and inviting atmosphere. Sales staff will help fill a dressing room for you while you shop if you want. They even have an espresso bar too to complement your shopping experience.
Whether you’re just browsing or looking for something in particular, Revolution is the place to go.
This a relaxing shopping experience where you can browse undisturbed, but if you need help, the staff is ready to assist.
Sometimes you’re just not sure about a piece and need some advice. Or you feel stellar and get a thumbs up from the peanut gallery.
On one shopping excursion, a young lady was trying on a dress and stepped out of the dressing room to show her grandmother. The sales lady commented on how flattering the dress was.
During another occasion, I was trying on clothes when the owner, Kim Souza, asked how it went. I commented honestly that one of the pieces I wanted to love. It was a black dress, so soft and a great design; however, upon trying it on I found it was too low cut for my liking. She said she had heard that from others as well and would pass along the feedback to the designer.
Wow. The owner is in direct contact with the people who design the clothes! This really makes a customer’s feedback valuable.
I go to other stores and leave disappointed finding most of the clothes either too trendy or unflattering in the mirror. At Revolution, the clothes frame the figure well with flexible fabric that’s really comfortable and forgiving. Every item is sooo soft, whether it was a skirt or a top. I felt the need to run my hand over every fabric.
I also loved that I could get a knee length skirt with a simple design in fun colors. Pair it with a nice top and you can set your own style and shine.
Worried you can’t afford it? Don’t. You can find items for under $30. One skirt I saw was $42.
Like one item? Grab it in multiple colors if you want. I was tempted to do this. I have an lovely powder blue cardigan I got there that I love to wear out or to work. It’s light weight which works well in spring and fall and feels silky on my skin.
