'Tis the Season - New Hours

It's that time of year - the holidays are upon us. We hope that you will enjoy the Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, and Kwanzaa holidays this year - and appreciate the true meaning of each of these special seasons!

We've had a wonderful season so far - lots of great fashions arriving daily! Luxurious sweaters, warm wool coats and slacks, soft velour and corduroy jeans, silk and cashmere sweaters - in all the right colors!

In addition, we have some great gift items at wonderful prices! New watches, including cuff and silicone styles, Circle E candles in gift bags, shawls and knit neck scarves, a great selection of new fashion jewelry in gift boxes, and first quality Melissa and Doug wooden puzzles (sturdy enough to last several generations!) We also have gift certificates available!

Between now and New Years we will be having drawings for gift certificates - please stop in and register - no purchase necessary!

We have new hours to serve you: Monday through Friday: 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In addition, if you have clothes to drop off you might consider parking in the back of our store and using our back door - just ring the door bell!

Now that we are getting into the end of the season we are starting mark-downs - offering bargains galore! Stop in today to see what treasures await you!

What's in Vogue this season?

The overall theme for fall and winter is relaxed chic. Military and tuxedo style jackets, and coat structured capes in longer lengths are very fashionable. Ruffles, from a tiny ripple down the front of a top to full tiers on dresses or skirts, are very popular. Leopard prints (the most enduring of all animal prints) remain strong. Our love affair with denim continues and indigo denim jeans - boot cut, boyfriend, or skinny styles are the latest. Accessories include Fedora hats and paper boy caps, chunky and bold jewelry, cuff watches, shawls and wraps, leggings, and faux fur vests. Lace remains strong and is ultra feminine - and teamed up with a variety of fabrics - from denim to leather! Skirts from mini to maxi are fashionable this season.

Saving money is the new trend, just as spending it was in the past. Resale is an option now favored by many fashion forward women and cost conscious families. For real value and great selection, visit Act II where personalized customer service is always in style!

Fall 2010

As summer ends (and surely it will) it's time to go through your closets and update your fall wardrobe.

If you didn't wear it in the last year or two - it's time to move it out! Sometimes you have to cut your losses - you know - those fashion mistakes, wrong colors and gifts that just aren't your style. If your clothes are not becoming to you, they should be coming to Act II! Last year's fashions can be turned into this year's cash - don't let those "non-wearables" just hang in your closet to get outdated faster than you think.

On the other hand, Act II features a great variety of fashionable, better label apparel (sizes 0 to 24W) and unique accessories, as well as designer handbags. Remember, great style isn't about getting a whole new wardrobe each season, but about changing out certain pieces, to reflect your current style or requirements. Spruce up your wardrobe with additional items from our designer label fall collection! The consignment inventory is complemented by new merchandise, such as jewelry, watches, handbags, scarves and shawls (houndstooth included!). Act II offers variety, from desk to dinner and beyond, as well as weekend and vacation wear!
