Note: The following giveaway is open to residents of the Greater Toronto Area only.
It’s the middle of the December, which means you’re probably entering the panic zone for that hard-to-shop-for friend, sister or daughter-in-law.
She’s stylish and savvy, always chic and at the forefront of fashion trends. She loves clothes and is a shopaholic, but often has buyer’s remorse when the credit card statement arrives. She wears her heart on her sleeve, and that sleeve is the latest season’s fashion, accessorized perfectly with statement jewelry, a stunning handbag and perfectly pointy peep-toes.
(Maybe that hard-to-shop-for woman is…. you?)
Introducing Chic Marie. Fresh off its success in Quebec, Chic Marie, a booming clothing rental business with a service based on an affordable monthly subscription, is now available in Toronto!
Chic Marie’s mission is to offer women a range of quality clothing at a wallet-friendly price. This holiday season, if you’re shopping for a professional woman – someone who normally dedicates a healthy portion of her budget to wardrobe spending – here’s why Chic Marie may just be the perfect present for her – or YOU! (Start dropping those hints, girl!)
1. An affordable, rotating wardrobe. Through a monthly subscription beginning at $55, customers have the opportunity to choose up to nine (9) different articles of clothing per month from a large online selection. You can keep and wear the items for as long as you like, and when you’re ready for a refresh, simply return them to Chic Marie to immediately receive new items. (Fallen in love? Have no fear, they also offer the option of buying your favorite items.) The clothing is dry cleaned between each order, and of course, Chic Marie covers the dry cleaning costs.
With new designer partnerships every month, the selection of available clothing will continue to grow. In only a few clicks, fashionistas can enjoy an unlimited wardrobe all the while saving time and money.
2. The hottest styles at your fingertips – without the wasted time and burning bills. According to a survey of 2,000 women conducted by research firm OnePoll Survey, the average North American woman spends nearly 100 hours shopping yearly, including 30 shopping trips for clothes, 40 hours spent on 15 shoe shopping trips, and another 50 hours per year browsing!
Yet, here’s the alarming part – the average North American woman buys an average of 64 articles of clothing a year, and yet only uses 22 of them on a regular basis. Thus, nearly 60 per cent of a woman’s wardrobe is simply collecting dust!
With average savings ranging from 10 to 20 per cent, Chic Marie is a smart way to look and feel your best all year long, at a budget friendly price.
3. Options to suit your lifestyle. With Chic Marie, you can select the membership level that works for you. (See all membership levels here.) If you want to try out the service and go month-to-month, it’ll cost $55 for a casual subscription (business casual offices, teachers, retail workers, etc.). For a classic subscription (formal office settings, real estate professionals, media personalities, etc.) the monthly subscription price is $95.
However, you can save up to $140 with a 6-month prepaid subscription and up to $500 with an annual prepaid subscription, plus you’ll receive special bonuses!
4. More options to customize your shopping experience. You can also take advantage of their insurance coverage for $5 a month so you can wear the clothes worry-free. Plus, your membership is paid on a monthly basis with a preauthorized payment. That means you can end your membership at any time. (Of course, you will have to return the clothes before you can cancel a membership!)
So, if you’re shopping for a fashionista this holiday season – or happen to be one yourself – Chic Marie may be the answer you’re looking for!
And, since I’m keen on introducing my readers to services they may love, I’m giving away three $100 gift cards to Chic Marie! To enter the contest, fill the form below with your qualifying entries. Good luck, and to those checking out the service, happy shopping!
