Trunkshows at Jan's Boutique

Are you looking for that exclusive dress or gown where you want to look stylish, unique and have every one's eyes on you? A trunk show at Jan's Boutique is the perfect place to find what you are looking for. If you've never been to a trunk show, let me tell you a little bit about these events at Jan's.

A trunkshow is an old term which manufacturers in the garment business used many years ago to ship their samples or actual inventory to the retailers in a "big trunk". Today this tradition continues and you can get a preview of all the new styles before the season starts. This gives you perfect opportunity to see dresses or gowns that the buyers of Jans Boutique have previewed in the New York, California and European showrooms months beforehand.

You can usually purchase these trunkshow garments or special order them in the color and size of your choice at the trunkshow. Trunkshows are wonderful because they allow you to see more styles, enabling you to make an informed decision of which styles would look best on you. Jan's hosts over 50 trunkshows throughout the year. Reservations are only required for select couture designers.

We currently have a Jovani trunkshow going on until October 9th. Come in and preview the gorgeous 2009 fall-winter collections as well as get a sneak peek at the 2010 spring- summer collections. Jovani dresses and gowns are perfect for mother of the bride/ groom, bat/bar mitzvah mothers, second time or destination brides, or any black tie affair.

Here are some of Jovani's latest fashions:

Jovani 151842: Gorgeous V-neckline gown with layered bodice, circle
short sleeves and stunning jewel accents.

Why Travel To Our Store?

Today we had a woman from South Carolina come into our store and buy a Gail Garrison dress. Now don't forget that our exclusive, 6,000 square foot dress boutique is in Cherry Hill, NJ. That's a long way, wouldn't you think? But traveling to Jan's Boutique is well worth it. Why, might you ask? Well let me tell you. While I'm at it take a look at one of the premiere, Gail Garrison selections.

3057: This elegant satin charmeuse gown will flatter your figure as you will be noticed all evening.

Jan's has been voted as the "best women's dress boutique" in the Delaware Valley by the publications of The Philadelphia Inquirer, South Jersey Magazine, The Trend, The Courier Post, The Burlington County Times and SJ Magazine. Our excellent customer service and large selection of dresses are two good reasons why we have a loyal local customer base, however there are many other reasons why customers will travel over four hours to visit our store.

If you are from another state, you can save on sales tax. You can save as much as 8% in taxes if you live in areas such as Philadelphia, New York City, Washington, DC or Richmond, VA. There is no sales tax on evening wear in our Cherry Hill, NJ store.

Many customers travel to buy a dress because they want something different than what their local store carries. Who wants to be at a formal affair and realize they are wearing the same dress as their neighbor? With our selection of over 4,000 dresses in stock, that's something you won't have to worry about.

Nowadays, not everyone is the perfect size 4 or 6. Gowns and evening wear are cut small so most women will need a larger size dress. Jan's carries sizes from 0 to 28 but the fantastic thing is we also have a wide selection of plus and women sizes.

Whether you are looking for a mother of the bride or groom dress, shopping for a special black tie affair or you're a second time bride looking for the perfect dress, drive to Jan's and you will not be disappointed. We have several trunk shows going on now including a Jovani trunk show and Alyce Designs trunk show where you can preview the 2009 fall - winter collections as well as get a sneak peek of the 2010 spring - summer collections.
