Summer is over, but the good news is….fall fashions are in stores! And fall fashion for moms at Clothes Mentor will keep you on budget while shopping the latest fall trends. With four locations in the Cincinnati area, Clothes Mentor carries sizes 0-26, petites and maternity. And every day in stores, they pay you cash on-the-spot to purchase your “gently-used” women’s seasonal clothing and accessories.
As a stylist and fashion blogger, Clothes Mentor is one of my favorite stores to help my clients (and myself) get the runway looks under budget. Last week, my friend and I went to Clothes Mentor seeking new fall fashions. and a peek of the West Chester store remodel (updated dressing rooms with modern chandelier lighting).
I arrived early; and of course, the staff is always super friendly and ready to assist you. I also brought a bag of fall items from my closet hoping to sell. The process is easy – have your identification ready. Then Clothes Mentor prices your items using a cutting-edge computer system. They price items around 1/3 of the original retail; and then will offer you up to 1/3 of that. After your clothes are reviewed and entered into the system, Clothes Mentor will present you with an offer.
The time to process your items varies, but you will be sent a text message once your buy is complete. If you choose to accept the offer, you will be paid cash immediately or apply the bid towards a new purchase. And if they choose not to purchase your items, you many take them home or Clothes Mentor will donate them to Matthew 25 Ministries.
Since I arrived early, (and knowing my girlfriend’s style, needs and sizes) I began my hunt through the store. No matter the season, Clothes Mentor is always a breeze to shop at — organized by clothing type, size, color and accessories. They make finding your perfect outfit easy.
My girlfriend wanted casual work clothes; and I found her a dressing room full of sweaters, button-down shirts, outerwear, bottoms and shoes. Needless to say, when she arrived, she was shocked at the number of outfits found for her.
I was searching for a night-on-the-town dress plus a few fall causal trends. I found the perfect Little Black Dress for my soon-to-be date night downtown.
