Style Encore: Great Fashion, Fantastic Prices

Style Encore is distinctively different from local retail and consignment stores. They have all the top brands in clothing, shoes, and accessories, but at a fraction of the cost. Shannon Kemp, owner, and her staff make it easy to find exactly what you are looking for without breaking the bank, and because the inventory changes every day, it is always the right time to shop!

What puts Style Encore in a class of its own:

  1. Pay cash on the spot. The processing is quick and easy. Style Encore pays cash on the spot when you bring in your high quality, gently used women’s casual and business clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories. Depending on the style, condition, brand, and the store’s current stock levels, customers, on average, can expect to receive 30-50% of the resale price Style Encore places on the items.
  2. Trade up. While buyers review your items for purchase, you will have time to check out the latest styles in the store. Shannon reports that the majority of customers trade up; meaning once they accept the offer for purchase, they leave with a new outfit (or two) and some extra cash in their handbag. Style Encore is the local answer to Poshmark!
  3. No appointments necessary. Style Encore buys clothing for all seasons – all day…every day…so you get to decide when you are going to sell, based on your schedule. There are no specific days of the week set aside to bring items in or seasonal clothing restrictions.

“This is not your average women’s resale store.”

  1. Sizes 0-4X. You will find an expansive selection of trendy casual and business clothing in great condition at a fraction of the cost in a wide range of sizes.
  2. Fashion forward women. Style Encore focuses on women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories – no attire for teens or juniors. Shannon reports that her customers are smart, stylish, and expect ultra-high value and quality in their fashion. From recent college graduates embarking on a new career to chic grandmothers, classy attire and accessories are at their fingertips.

           What’s trending for fall:

  • Bojo – fringe, lace, embroidery, layered jewelry, and all things shabby chic
  • Metallics –silver and gold clothing, shoes, and accessories; shiny is in!
  • Ankle Boots and Booties – short boots in all colors, and styles– leather, tapestry, casual, and dressy

“Designer looks. Desirable prices.”

  1. Fun, friendly shopping environment. Arranged by garment type (e.g., dresses, skirts, tops by sleeve length, pants), size, and color in each section, the store is a rainbow of stylish apparel and accessories. Style Encore’s staff enjoys helping customers find the fashion deal of a lifetime.
  2. Amazing prices. Customers will enjoy huge savings off retail prices for gently used clothing and accessories. White House Black Market, Talbots, Lilly Pulitzer, Chico’s, and Ann Taylor are just a few of the great clothing lines you will find here. Style Encore targets spending savvy, fashion conscious women!

“Ladies, discover Style Encore this fall.”

  1. Buy all brands. From items purchased at Target to department/mall stores and boutiques, Style Encore buys and sells a plethora of fashion lines. There is truly something for everyone! You can follow Style Encore on Facebook and Instagram to see the most recent inventory.
  2. Free personal styling. The customer completes a style profile and the staff at Style Encore will pre-shop through the store to design a customized “capsule wardrobe” – a few key pieces that can be used to create a number of outfits that will take you from day into night. This is the (free) local answer to Stitch Fix!
  3. Ladies’ Night Out Events. Throughout the year, Style Encore hosts a number of large events to raise money for local organizations and causes like Breast Cancer Awareness, Women’s Heart Health, and Teacher Appreciation. Additionally, Style Encore provides the perfect venue for smaller groups of women to get together and have some fun (e.g., book clubs, running groups, dental practices, law firms, etc.). When you couple wine, food, door prizes, a style makeover or scarf demonstration with a private shopping adventure, you have a night to remember.

“Something as simple as a good look can make a big difference in a woman’s day.”

Shannon Kemp
