Princess Room awaits

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Be­lieve it or not, there is a “Princess Room” in Ca­role’s Boutik, a new and con­sign­ment cloth­ing store lo­cated at 26 Main St. N. in Alexan­dria.

That’s the un­of­fi­cial name that staff gives the room, which is loaded with colour­ful dresses and shoes for women at­tend­ing for­mal af­fairs. Right now, the dresses in the room are geared more to­ward hol­i­day par­ties, but in the new year, store pro­pri­etor Ca­role Lapierre will bring out the wed­ding dresses and the prom dresses.

It’s all part and par­cel of her mis­sion to give lo­cal women an op­por­tu­nity to look as stylish as pos­si­ble. As such, she makes a real ef­fort to en­sure that the store’s new clothes are all this year’s fash­ions.

In terms of con­sign­ment, the store is cur­rently work­ing with more than 400 con­signors with new ship­ments ar­riv­ing ev­ery week. There’s even a room of Sum­mer wear for lo­cal peo­ple who are trav­el­ling down south this winter.

Al­though the store car­ries mostly women’s cloth­ing (in­clud­ing shoes, jew­ellery and ac­ces­sories) there is a small se­lec­tion of men’s cloth­ing – cor­duroy pants, jeans, ties, and shoes. One of Ms. Lapierre’s goals is to of­fer more men’s cloth­ing some time in the fu­ture.

In the mean­time, she and her staff would like to thank their clients and their con­signors for their busi­ness.

“It’s our plea­sure to serve you and we look for­ward to serv­ing you in the new year.”
