The Haute List | Takes Style Out 2017

Monday, October 9, 2017

Takes Style Out is that one day when retailers across Jamaica offer discounts from as low as 10% all the way up to 70%. As the years go by however there are fewer shoppers and fewer discounts to really "run home about". This year's event was a bit soft which could partly be due to the weather (it rained heavily all day ) and the timing of the event. We here at The Haute Lifestyle was able to visit a few stores that we believed were poppin' in their overall presentation, stock and discounts. Here are the top stores making our Haute List for Takes Style Out 2017.


Lee's - Clothing

Lee's has come a long way and can be likened to the Jamaican equivalent of Macy's. It is a department store that offers clothing, accessories and now make-up. Upon entering the store we immediately noticed live mannequins and a live dj who spun some of today's latest tunes. If you were passing you literally just had to stop. Inside the store were additional sales associates on hand ready to take on the increase in shoppers. Their deals ranged from 20% off items plus 20 % off Christmas arrivals and an extra 20% off already marked down items. At the EC Makeup Bar (inside the store) was 15-20% off all make-up brands.


Xtras






I like to dub this store as an "oldie but goodie" as they have been around since I was in high school and never disappoint in sterling silver jewelery. They had their usual sales associates and a few new faces and their discounts ranged from 25-75% off which includes shoes, clothing, jewelry and accessories.


Bath Plus






The new kid on the Block as it relates to Housewares is Bath Plus. If you are familiar with Mall Plaza you would remember this store being in that corridor/hall way between Collectibles Clothing on the left and Collectibles Shoes on the right! When we entered the store it was quite busy with people trying to stock up on bedding and bathroom items before the Christmas rush. They offered discounts from 10% - 70% on  mats, liners and shower curtains.


Ammar's





Ammar's has catered to the fashion needs of men, women, children's apparel, housewares and luggage for 5 decades. Inside the store was a bit chaotic as we saw frenzied shoppers grabbing all the discounted items and sales associates busy on their feet helping the influx of shoppers. We were able to speak with the Manager Ms. Clarke who informed us of the discounts from 15%-75% on clothing for ladies and gents, housewares and kiddies.


7th Avenue Plaza



Just a stone's throw away from Mall Plaza is 7th Avenue Plaza where quaint boutiques are plentiful! Before we got there however, we ran into the NCB Keycard Cash and Lovebird Keycard who offered shoppers who used their cards grand savings. We visited Fashion 911 and Style Savvy Boutique at 7th Avenue  Plaza.


Fashion 911





This hidden gem of boutiques in 7th Avenue Plaza never disappoints and always offer an ease of shopping without a pesky sales associate prompting you to "buy, buy, buy". We loved that the items on sale were of this season and still trending and there were pieces that were as low as $450, $800 and $1000!  Shoppers could also get shoes for 50% off the original value.


Style Savvy Boutique





 

 

When you think the latest in Fashion Trends, Style Savvy is one of those stores that always gets it right! This was the last store on our "Take Style Out" impromptu tour and we were not disappointed. There were pieces on sale for $1000, $2,500 and $3,500 and 20% off other items in store. Apart from clothing pieces, there were swimsuits which are great for the holiday "travel season".


If you went out to Takes Style out in any part of Jamaica, let us know your experience and if you liked the sales or not.
