Big News! Rentals, Buy Backs, and 2019 Reader's Choice Awards!
August 09 2019
We've got so many exciting things to announce this week, so let's get right to it!
We are honored to announce that Lisa Nelle was voted Best Western Show Clothing Designer in the 2019 Pleasure Horse Reader's Choice Awards! Thank you to all of our loyal customers who voted for us -- it means so much. YOU are what keeps us going strong and we're so grateful for all of your support.
We've been talking about adding a rental option for our U.S. customers for a while now, and we're finally going for it. The way folks shop is changing -- many people now opt to rent their clothing rather than buy. I've been renting most of my clothes for years now, and this works for me. I realized if I'm only going to wear a dress once, why am I paying full price to let it sit in my closet taking up space and collecting dust? I also realized that renting is a great way to stay on top of trends, wear high-end designers without the high-end price tag, and have no commitment. And by the way, renting is also the perfect solution for those of us on a near constant weight loss (or gain) journey. I can't count on both hands the number of times I've had to donate 90% of my wardrobe because nothing fit anymore. Now, when I rent, I choose whatever my current size is, and don't have to worry about it not fitting in the future.
We have several great options in a range of sizes for rent. Just checkout through our website and add a note telling us the day you'd like to receive your garment(s). We'll get back to you with confirmation and a rental contract. Rentals are 7 days -- wear it all you want during those 7 days, and send it back with the prepaid shipping label. We'll handle the cleaning. And that's it! You get a professional, stylish, expensive look, without any long-term commitment. I'd say that's a pretty good deal!
We're also really excited to offer our new Buy Back Program. Do you have a new or used Lisa Nelle jacket, shirt, or vest that you just don't need anymore? Submit it to us for appraisal! Just fill out our online appraisal form, and we'll get back to you with a quote. We will let you know the resale value of the item, and if you choose to sell us your item, you'll receive either 50% of the resale value by check, or 70% of the resale value by Lisa Nelle gift card.
Why would I sell it to you when I can just sell it myself, you might be asking. Well, there are benefits on both sides. Selling the item yourself, through Ebay or Facebook for example, may get you a higher price overall. So if cash is your number one concern, then you may want to take our appraisal and use it to help determine your selling price when listing your item. But if you're the kind of person who doesn't have a ton of time on their hands, wants to keep things easy, and wants to work with a reputable company, then using our Buy Back Program is for you.
Once your appraisal form is submitted, we'll get back to you right away. If you decide to sell to us, we'll send you your payment or gift card within three business days of receiving your item(s). You can either head straight to the bank with your check or hop online to redeem your gift card. Easy! Gift cards can be put toward anything on our site, and never expire -- so you can shop now or shop later.
The speed at which you free yourself of your item cannot be beat. There's no need to wait for someone to notice your item listing, and no need for a ton of back and forth with looky-loos who have no intention of actually buying it anyway. Let us do that work!
The added benefit is that you're working with a buyer you know. I'm sure I don't have to tell you how many scammers there are on Facebook in particular. So if you decide you want to sell (or buy) through Facebook or any other online marketplace, please be careful, and make sure you know who you're dealing with!
If you've got something you'd like appraised, submit it to us! It's been a fun walk down memory lane seeing all of the pieces that have been submitted so far. Soon, we'll have a separate section on the website for pre-owned Lisa Nelle's, and there's sure to be a lot of deals to be had.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
