Encore Nouveau Boutique

Women's Designer Resale

By Suzanne O'Connor

Valley bargainistas have a “new on the scene” women’s resale boutique, Encore Nouveau. Not quite your typical resale boutique, this cute, cutting edge, fun boutique is filled with a well edited of women’s designer resale, vintage and new designer samples at 40%-80% off the original retail.

Across the street from It’s a Wrap, you won’t find the upper crust of designers…. No conservative Chanel, Gucci or Yves St Laurent. No snobby, over the top sales chicks. Just stylin quality fashion designer duds at super affordable pricing.

Labels spotted included Rock N Republic, Volcum,  Yag,  Free People, Jenny Han, Gerald Darel, Max Studio, J Crew, Polo,  Velvet, Da Nang, James Perse, Louis Verdad, Nanette Lepore Michael Stars, Vertigo and more.

The racks here are organized by size so you can quickly find out what’s in, in your size. A quick cruise through had me grabbing several items…. A Nanette Lepore summer silk blouse was $28 instead of the original $145. A Velvet ruffled long sleeve Tee was just $15. A really cool a NWT Louis Verdad Blouse was $55 instead of $334. I loved a beautifully tailored Gerald Darel wool top at $50 instead of $180 and a very hip Free People knit sweater was also a great buy at $32 instead of $110.

The full wall of jeans will keep ya happy with jeans by Rock N Republic at $45. NWT, 7 For All Mankind classic jeans were $100 instead of $220.  NWT Lyric Couture jeans were $85 instead of $180 and Volcum jeans were just $20.  NWT Hudson jeans were just $32

For dressier occasions they have a La Rok jersey dress at $43, a Jenny Han evening blouse was $20 instead of $140 and a gold knit Laundry cocktail dress is perfect for holiday fun at $38.  A Betsy Johnson silk jacket at just $36 and a St Germaine vintage party dress is a $25. If you need an interview suit they had several with a Calvin Klein fine wool skirt suit at just $80.

Die hard bargainistas will gravitate to the $5-$10 bargain racks and if you love accessories, ya gotta check out this place. Great baubles, bangles, hats, belts and handbags at remarkably low, bottom line pricing.  The shoe selection was fun with a pair of Sigerson Morrison mules at $45 and classic fashion booties by Joseph Italy at just $32.

Sizing here runs XS-XXL and the racks are not so over stuffed you can’t look through them.

But the best part about this neat little boutique is the incredibly friendly sale help. Kind, interested in you… your comfort and needs. You’re treated as a valuable friend rather than just a customer. They even have a corner set up for coffee, snacks and water so you’ll sit a spell and relax.

So swing by, shop for bargains and sit a spell, you’ll find some delicious fashion buys and have a great time as well.
