Don’t know where to start with your holiday gift list? Stressing over finding the perfect outfit to wear to your holiday office party?
Have no fear, Fashion Valley has you covered with a new personal shopper service, just in time for the rush of the holiday season.
“Our goal is for each customer to enjoy a quality, convenient shopping experience at Fashion Valley,” said Robert Doherty, mall manager at Fashion Valley. “The personal shopper program is a fantastic amenity for those looking to save time or just enjoy a customized shopping visit.”
Gift shopping is a breeze this year, with Fashion Valley's new personal shopper service, meant to help customers save time this season.
Focused on enhancing the customer shopping experience, this personalized amenity is available in time for holiday shopping and can be enjoyed by anyone.
During the initial complimentary engagement, which typically lasts up to two-hours, Fashion Valley’s personal shopper Lisa Moore of San Diego style blog Mona Lisa Marie, will work with customers through style assessments conducted by phone or in person.
“Fashion can really be an expression of individual personality,” said Moore, a professional in the healthcare field who works at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego by day. Moore began blogging and styling as a creative outlet to express her passion for fashion. “I’m thrilled to be helping shoppers display their individuality through styling, and help them save time while doing so.”
As a solution to the stress that can sometimes come with holiday shopping, Fashion Valley's personal shopper can either function like a concierge service and do the shopping for you, or to escort you on a custom shopping tour of the center, to help with your tough-to-tackle gift list or holiday fashion dilemmas.
“We encourage the custom tour of the center, because it allows shoppers to really maximize the experience and pick up some shopping and style tips along the way,” said Moore.
Should customers decide to use Fashion Valley’s personal shopper for additional services, Moore’s rate is $50 per hour.
In addition, Fashion Valley's new personal shopper will have even more choices of where to shop, with the recent addition of the Topshop popup at Nordstrom and Scotch & Soda, recently remodeled Steve Madden store and newly opened J.Jill and Halston Heritage store.
