Leoapard print dress, Zadig & Voltaire (New Collection) If you happen to have read this blog post from last year, you would know that as soon as I discovered Ami Boutique in West Vancouver, I immediately fell in love!!! Since I have been shopping there for myself and with clients for some time now, I thought that I would share a few reasons why I love it so much. Want to know what you can expect when you walk through the doors of Ami? Here are five reasons to shop at Ami Boutique! (plus a giveaway!). Velvet blouse, Mother Denim, Clare V. Bag, K. Jacques Sandals Five Reasons To Shop at Ami Boutique Reason #1 – Brands For years I have had to source out my favourite brands either online, or on vacation. I much prefer the instant gratification of shopping IN-STORE, where you can try items on and get a sense of what works best for you. So many of the brands I was trying to track down in Vancouver were not available, even at the department stores. I think that if you are going to invest in quality pieces, it’s a huge bonus when you can find ONE store that offers you so many options. To me, Ami is a place where I have found my most coveted items that I know will truly stand the test of time. So what are some of the brands that they carry?? Nathalie Martin (they are the ONLY retailer that carries this brand in Canada) Velvet Frank + Eileen Zadig + Voltaire Apiece Apart Grlfrnd Denim Mother Denim Golden Goose (amazing sneakers. I live in mine!) Xirena Raquel Allegra And here are a few more that will be arriving this spring!! Isabel Marant Etoile (I am OBSESSED with this brand!!) Faliero Sarti Smythe IRO Closed I couldn’t possibly list them all, so I suggest checking out the store to see it in person! I am always discovering new brands from all over the world that I didn’t know about before! Apiece Apart blouse, Rag & Bone Dark Grey Denim Reason #2 – Return & Exchange Policy It is extremely rare that you will find an independent boutique who offers a FULL refund within 7 days, and exchange within 14 days. Why does Ami offer this to their customers? They want you to LOVE what you buy, and it’s only natural for us as women to change our minds on occasion once we bring an item home. This just shows you their commitment to customer service (which I will touch on later ;-)). When you are going to invest in quality pieces, you want to be sure that they work for you, and your body type. You are going to have them in your closet for a LONG time! Clare V. backpack, Janessa Leone Hat Reason #3 – A Beautiful Space Ami has a beautiful aesthetic, with a great design. The store is extremely spacious and well laid out. You have ample amounts of room to shop leisurely, and the racks are not packed full. There is also a comfortable seating area where your spouse can lounge so you can shop peacefully! (win win). I love going there especially on a rainy day, because you feel like you’ve transported yourself to California. It definitely has those vibes ♥ Mother Denim Jacket, Rag & Bone Dark Grey Denim Reason #4 – Customer Service It is SO important for independent boutiques to create a welcoming atmosphere and maintain excellent customer service. If you don’t, word will get out!! The great news for Ami is that news has spread about their AMAZING customer service. They are genuine, and they want to help you feel your best. It’s not about the sale, and their staff does not work on commission. Jennifer (the owner) is one of the sweetest women you will ever meet (and also incredibly stylish!). I always want what she is wearing!! You get a feeling of family when you are in there. The staff are so pleasant, and they remember the returning customers by name. Also, it’s a dog friendly space! Jennifer and her staff go above and beyond to provide the best experience possible for you. Nathalie Martin Dress (New Collection) Reason #5 – Private Events Whether it is a ladies night you are hoping to plan, or a charity event with a fashionable twist, Ami wants to hear from you! They have hosted several private events in the past, and are always open to hosting more. For charitable events, they will donate a portion of sales to that charity as their way of giving back. How wonderful is that?? The space is large so you can host a group comfortably. How fun would it be to bring in a group of your closest friends and shop while the store is closed?? I think I may just do that 😉 If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the store 604-281-4040.
