A monthly update about what's going on here at Paris West Optical, or the senseless, grammatically challenged ramblings from someone with too much free time. Maybe a little of both.
Now in stock: New Etnia Barcelona and IGreen.
Ok ... this winter has been lame. Cold, freezing rain, snow... did I mention the cold? Polar Vortex, there's 2 words we could have really lived without knowing... but there is a bright side. Spring is coming. Really...they can't cancel it. (whomever "they" are)
In order to be prepared for the Great Thaw of 2014 we've been busy buying LOTS of HOT new frames for whenever everyone ends their hibernation and comes out of the house. (what else are we gonna do? go outside??)
2 collections have already found their way through the blizzard(s) and into our cold trembling hands... one newcomer: IGreen (pictured above with the gratuitous beach shot)- available downtown and one old friend: Etnia Barcelona (pictured below)- available downtown and in Bel Air.
Both collections are reasonably priced and extremely fun and colorful...
so if you're brave then sled...I mean skate...I mean stop by and try a few on... our heat IS working. I promise.
With Spring around the corner and all of the big optical trade shows happening now and in the near future, we are super excited to see what new beautiful specs we will have arriving in the coming months. Unfortunately there's a small problem...we don't have any room to put them.
So this bit of bad news for us is good news for you...we are having a sale. A BIG SALE. We will have hundreds of amazingly beautiful eyeglasses and sunglasses at both our Downtown and Bel Air shops marked with pretty sparkly GOLD STARS. You know the kind, the cool stickers you got when you performed well in school. Well, actually I had no idea what they looked like until recently. Now a dunce-cap, I was pretty familiar with, but that's another story for another day.
So stop in, look for the shiny gold star stickers and SAVE 50% off that pair of eyewear. No, that's not a misprint, it really is 50% OFF, but only while supplies last, cause when they're gone, they're gone for good.
Long time readers of our blog know what big fans we are of Pro Design and their Gail Spence aluminum re-issue collection. We were thrilled when after 20 years, Pro Design decided to re-issue (and improve upon) these timeless designs from the 80's.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and there will be NO MORE of these beauties manufactured.
There is a silver lining however, and that is we DO have a limited supply of these classics available for immediate purchase...in ALL 4 colors. (Red, Copper, Turquoise and Silver).
The even better news is that we are selling these at 50% off of the suggested retail of $325. (that's $162.50 for those of you who are bad at the math). We will even include FREE Priority Mail shipping with purchase. But hurry...these never last long. (I think my mother is texting me as I type this). Orders and questions should be sent to us at email@example.com. Don't miss out! Order today!
Hi! Sorry for the lack of updates pretty much all this year, it's been hectic (and I'm old so I move slower). However, my New Years Resolution (that I'm making in November) is to update a LOT more often... both here and on Facebook and Instagram.
To that end, we are excited to announce the official launch of our exclusive new PRIX FIXE collection. (that's fixed price in French or so I'm told...and hey we ARE Paris West after all).
With all of the online and discount eyeglass options out there, my friends and customers would ask what we had that would be in a similar price point. The reality was we had nothing, we are a high end, high service boutique and the cheap options out there were quite honestly too crappy to get excited about. (Yep, call me an eyewear snob, I can handle it).
I always would claim that if I wanted to I could source, curate and create a line that would be stylish and decent quality and would fit in with the amazing selection of high end eyew…
