This past Thursday, we celebrated our 40th anniversary here at Leigh’s. To commemorate this incredible achievement, we went all out! DJ Adrien Butler spun nothing but hits from the 1970’s, Ms. Batty Davis performed a rendition of ‘Knock on Wood’ in a gold sequin mini dress, Rachel Finan twirled around her hula hoop that hung from the ceiling, a replica of our store in cake form was created by local bakery; Connie’s Cakes, luxe prizes for a select few lucky winners were given out every hour, tons of yummy food catered by Martha’s Vineyard, and of course, champagne! The man who started it all, Mr. Larry Leigh, was in attendance along with our beloved customers and employees. Oh, and did we forget to mention that Andy Warhol and Liza Minnelli also made an appearance? We would like to thank everyone who attended this very special event, celebrating fashion, fun, and the Leigh’s Legacy!

Cheers to the next 40 years!

Lots of Love,



Hot Party!

Our Hot Party was sizzling last week!  Thank you for attending!  I received such a wonderful compliment from our Tom Ford rep who was in store hosting a Tom Ford eyewear trunk show.  He said that our store has an amazing vibe.  There is such great positive energy from our team and our customers and he thinks our store is one of the most beautiful stores he’s been to visit.  Wow!  That just gives me the warm (or should I say “HOT”) fuzzies!  We do have amazing customers!  If we haven’t told you lately, let me say it now,  “Thank you for shopping locally at Leigh’s!”   You are the reason we have so much fun coming to work everyday!  And, why we love bringing great fashion to West Michigan!  Hope you enjoyed our fiery Hot Party and as I posted on Facebook, if your husband asks you why you came home with so many new clothes, tell him the devil made you do it (see pic 1)!!
