When Jane and Morgan Heimbecker where shopping for an elegant gown for a community gala, their intentions were simply to come home with a dazzling gown. They were not harboring plans to turn an empty building into party dress central. However, after one too many shopping trips with disappointing customer service, and lack of unique gowns, they did just that! Starting their business in their home with three designs merely four years ago, their booming dress business now fills a building on 1931 W. Tilghman St., in Allentown. Having started with one vendor, they now host thirteen private lines, with 350 dresses in stock, and over 700 expected for prom season. It doesn't really stop there, because most of the dresses are special ordered in the size and color customers choose, using the in stock designs as a guide, with the option to purchase off the rack also. What truly sets Le Femme Boutique apart is the customer service, unique styles and attention to details that Jane and Morgan felt was lacking in the area's formal dress market. They work by appointment, where one of their staff, including mom and daughter, will give the utmost personal service, even pampering their young prom shoppers(while moms relax on the sofa). Dresses are kept pristine so there is no chance of buying a gown with missing sequins or pulled chiffon. But the best news for clients of all ages is the measure taken to keep like dresses from showing up at the same event! Records are kept from in store and online purchases to assure no design is going to the same party. They even go to lengths to choose vendors that are not carried in local stores in the surrounding 100 mile radius! Size ranges from double zero to size thirty, with styles for all age ranges. Although prom is a huge business for formal gowns, don't be fooled into thinking these styles are for youthful patrons only. There is a style for all occasions, Homecoming dance as well as Mother-of-the Bride, Prom to festive Holiday gala's.
Prices range from $98.00 up to $600.00, and special orders of higher-end gowns are available. So whatever your occasion, you don't want to miss checking out this lovely shopping experience.Do you have a closet full of formal dresses and nowhere to go? Been seen in that one already? Call Le Femme Boutique for their list of locations for gown donations. Your closet will be less cluttered, that dress gets to party again, and so does a less fortunate gal-everybody wins!
