One of my goals in creating this website is to make the St. Louis shopping world a little smaller. People are so funny about driving more that 10 minutes to get somewhere in this town. I hear a lot of, “Oooo, cute clothes, but it’s in _______?” Fill in the blank with any area East or West of 270 and, “It’s just so far!” Really? If we lived in L.A., we’d be driving 45 minutes to get anywhere and, okay we’d all be more tan and eat less meat, but that’s not the point. The point is, St. Louis has really great shopping, HANTASTIC shopping to be exact! It’s just waiting for you to discover it, even if that means driving out of your comfort zone. I recently had the pleasure of visiting MOD- 871 Arbor Vitae 62025. It’s a brand new boutique in the up and coming Illinois suburb of Edwardsville. Yes, that’s right I said Illinois. And it’s fabulous! Brought to you by the owners of Marta’s Boutique on the Missouri side, MOD is a breath of fresh air presented in bright colors and chic clothing.
And retail shoppers have been loving it. “This is such a welcoming community. Inventory has been flying off the shelves, we cannot keep some items, like maxi dresses in stock!”, said manager Ashley Brown. MOD has a surprisingly modest price point, meaning you can pop in for some quick fashion and walk out with a complete trendy look. Merchandise includes big names like MINK PINK, Free People, Lush and Tyche. Not only is the clothing fun at MOD, so is the shopping! “We have a promotion called Show Us Your Mod”, explains Brown, “A customer comes in, tries on an outfit, snaps a picture with their smartphone and uploads it to any social site while they’re in the store. If they buy it, they get a free pair of earrings, if not, they still walk away with a Mod Pop candy treat!” Now that’s HANTASTIC! Here’s a peek at what MOD has in store:
– Finally, dress weather has arrived! Step into Spring in style with one of these darling options!
– Tons of trendy tops!
– MOD has a nice selection of shorts and minis!
– And here come the accessories! MOD has it all from hats, to belts to all the jewelry in between!
MOD has the pieces you need for a fresh, chic look. Whether you’re shopping for an after prom look or for something to wear out to dinner. “I believe in dressing for yourself. It’s not an age thing, it’s all about your confidence and lifestyle,” states Brown. She is knowledgable and ready to help you find just the right piece!
