On Feb. 12, the Style Shop kicked off the spring semester with its grand re-opening celebration. The Style Shop, which is run by a student team, showcased their new spring merchandise to the student body while serving refreshments and along with a photo booth and DJ to entertain customers.
The Style Shop also revealed exciting news during the opening; the store will now accept credit and debit cards for any purchase over $20 representing a process several years in the making. Co-managers of the Style Shop, Courtney DiVito and Michela Artusa shared their thoughts on the spring opening. “Michela and I want the Style Shop to be a fun and exciting destination on campus for everyone to shop,”Artusa added, “We have all worked hard to create an exciting atmosphere for everyone at the store- from the playlist we make to our store visuals and general aesthetic.”
Visual merchandising manager, Alexandria Marini, shared her inspiration for the spring opening. “Our theme for opening was ‘For the LOVE of Shopping,’ which was perfect since we opened before Valentine’s Day! We decorated the Style Shop with paper hearts and filled the displays with candies and pearls for a romantic feel.”
And here’s what DiVito says people can look forward to this semester at the Style Shop: “You can expect fresh, one-of-a-kind product AND you can now pay with credit cards!”
