When was the last time you bought a Kate Spade handbag or a stylish outfit for work without spending a fortune? Is that even possible?

It is now, thanks to Style Encore, a new resale shop for women where you can find affordable, classic styles every day!  Located across from Thruway Shopping Center, Style Encore features gently used clothing and accessories that appeal to fashion-forward women.

Beginning TODAY Style Encore is celebrating its Grand Opening with three FULL days of fabulous finds, door prizes and special treats! Doors open today at 10 am, and the first 25 visitors will receive a $25 store gift card!

So ditch the mom jeans, skip the guilt, and stop worrying about your non-existent fashion budget. Instead, come out and shop the latest designer styles! There are literally hundreds of gently used current style clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry and accessories available every day at Style Encore – for a fraction of the price you’d normally pay (up to 70% off mall retail prices!). Favorite brands like Anthropologie, Athleta, Banana Republic, Coach, Joe’s Jeans, Loft, Lululemon Athletica, Michael Kors, Nine West, Nordstrom, Talbots, The Limited, White House Black Market, Vera Wang, and many, many more designer labels can be found at Style Encore.

Each Style Encore location is individually owned and operated by business savvy owners. Long-time Triad residents Michael and Shannon Kemp (parents of three children ages 11, 8 and 4), opened the Winston-Salem location, and they – along with their staff – are committed to creating a fun, friendly shopping environment where customers can find the fashion deal of a lifetime.

Says Shannon, “We focus on the latest styles that have been in stores in the last year or two, which in turn offers our customer a wide variety of items at greatly reduced prices without compromising style or trend. Plus, we offer a convenient way for our customers to sell their items because we pay cash on the spot with no appointment necessary. And we buy all seasons every day.”

And the more you sell, the more cash you’ll earn to shop! Style Encore buys and sells women’s casual and business clothing sizes 0-3X. Click here to see how the process works.

Shopping has never been more easy, stress-free, and convenient. Style Encore is open Monday – Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm, and on Sundays from 12 pm to 6 pm.
