Wow, I am amazed how quickly 2014 went by, but sometimes the best times always seem to move at a faster clip! It was such a great year for Leigh’s and I want to thank you for making it so wonderful. As you know, we are passionate about what we do; bringing the very best fashion the market has to offer right here to West Michigan for you…..our amazing customers. You get it all from us….clothing, shoes, accessories and cosmetics and we love enhancing your own personal style all while delivering you an exceptional Leigh’s experience. As I reflect on some of the new labels that we had in store for you in 2014, it makes me smile….Stella McCartney, Band of Outsiders, 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Derek Lam main collection, vintage Chanel and Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Barbara Bui, Monique Lhuillier, Ella McHugh, Wes Gordon,Veil Cosmetics, Damone Roberts, Aerin and so many more. With all this and all of your perennial favorites, it might not surprise you when I share that we had another record year at Leigh’s and were once again voted one of the best women’s stores in Grand Rapids. We are flattered and humbled by this. We know there are a lot of choices out there and that you choose to support our local business not only allows us to be successful but means the world to us. So, thank you.
We are also excited about what 2015 has in store….this is our 40th anniversary! Yes, Larry Leigh founded the business in 1975. My partners and I are also celebrating 10 years of owning the business and building the new store. And…this will be our 10th anniversary of our signature runway presentation Couture for a Cure benefiting the Van Andel Institute (October 8…save the date). We’re looking forward to celebrating these milestones with you through out the year. Cheers to 2015!
