Last weekend, Tory Burch invited me for a private shopping experience at the Oak Street boutique in Chicago. Since March, I’ve been extremely strict about traveling anywhere outside our home and neighborhood (aside from a few remote murals, of course). However, the brand clearly outlined their protocols and made me feel very safe. Plus, since it was on a Sunday when they’re otherwise closed, I wasn’t in the way of any regular shoppers. Naturally, the stylist and I both wore masks the entire time we interacted. See their full reopening efforts for peace of mind here.
You may be thinking, “oh, they probably just did this private shopping session for you.” Not at all! They schedule private appointments throughout the week. In fact, I originally suggested stopping by before they opened on Saturday, but they already had client sessions scheduled.
When you attend a complimentary private styling session at Tory Burch Oak Street, the brand’s expert stylists recommend accessories, apparel items, and finishing touches. Plus, there’s even champagne!
Tory Burch Oak Street Shopping
Prior to a shopping appointment, they typically schedule a five-minute call with a Tory Burch stylist to explain inventory and discuss what you’re looking for. From there, they can easily pre-select items just for you. Love that! Efficient shopping at it’s finest!
In fact, Tory Burch Oak Street felt like visiting friends and family. From start to finish, the entire session was stress-free (and fun)! Plus, they also offer curbside pickup and same-day delivery for the local area (after giving your credit card on the phone, of course).
In Store vs. Online Shopping
Why not just buy it all online? Of course, that’s always an option. However, there are very unique perks and opportunities to shopping your local boutique (be it Tory Burch or otherwise). I’ve outlined a few options below. From a bigger picture standpoint, the fashion industry as a whole employs more than 4 million people nationwide. Your local store associates are looking to maintain business in these tough times, and they’re absolutely going the extra mile to do so. From fulfilling requests of items that walk the runway to hosting remote styling sessions and virtual store visits, your local associate can do it all!
Tory Burch Styling Concierge Service
Is in-person shopping still not for right you? Or do you live a bit too far from a boutique. If you need another option, Tory Burch also offers their Styling Concierge Service. For this option, you receive a personalized package of items, commitment-free. Decide which ones you like and ship the rest back at no cost. You pay only for the styles that you keep.
Something I discovered when I stopped by Tory Burch Oak Street is they receive new inventory even before it’s available to shop online. For example, this stunning sequin embellished dress with detachable collar is in-store now in Chicago! I can attest it’s even more stunning in person.
Also, I have a fun announcement! Tory Burch is giving my readers an additional 10% discount if you mention my name when you shop via the Styling Concierge Service or at the Tory Burch Oak Street boutique.
The additional percentage is quite rare. Therefore, I’m incredibly thankful to their team for coordinating it, and I hope you’ll take advantage of it!
With the holidays coming up, I recommend Tory Burch’s Styling Concierge Service for holiday gift ideas. Simply chat with their stylists and they’ll ship you a box with options. Gift giving simplified!
Tory Burch Fall Collection
What should you buy? From statement boots to one of the most beautiful bags I’ve ever seen, Tory Burch’s Fall 2020 collection is divine. Also, don’t overlook Tory Sport, which has a range of leggings, sports bras, tennis gear, and loungewear.
Why Shop Tory Burch
Tory Burch is one of my favorite brands. For me, my love for the brand all started with the iconic Reva (now Minnie) flat, then it moved to handbags, jewelry, and clothing. During my visit to Tory Burch Oak Street, I found out that Chicago’s ready-to-wear sales account for a higher percentage than the nationwide average. Chicagoans love Tory Burch!
In general, Tory Burch is more than just about wearing a brand. I’ve always admired Tory the woman. She is someone we should all aspire to be more like. Beyond her immense charitable giving and Foundation, she’s a huge proponent of empowering women, takes a stand about political and social issues, and she’s an invaluable voice and advocate of the fashion industry. Two weekends ago, she lent her voice and perspective to an incredible CBS Sunday Morning segment where Burch clearly outlined the importance of jobs in fashion.
As brand loyalists know, Tory Burch is not just about wearing a logo – it’s about aligning with a brand that is good and does good. Plus, they’re always ahead of the curve.
If you’re ready for a few new items for your wardrobe, be sure to connect with the amazing staff at Tory Burch Oak Street. Plus, mention my name and get 10% off your order! From the Styling Concierge Service to Curbside Pickup, Private Shopping Appointments, Virtual Visits, and more – they have it all! Best of all, their team is SO NICE and easy to work with. Thanks to the entire team for making my experience amazing as always.
