Right after we launched StyleBlueprint my good friend called and said, “I just found an incredible new store in Brentwood. You should write about; it ‘s called BLUSH.” Well, I had never heard of Blush and my radar is usually tuned into new stores around town. Maybe it was the Brentwood, strip mall location (next to Target) or perhaps the name BLUSH, but I found myself driving down to 37027 with an armor named SKEPTIC.
I peeked in the window, INTERESTING. I walked through the door, AMAZING. The clothes looked like they should be in a LA boutique and guess what? Everything is 50-70% off.
Owner, David Harris, calls his store “3 men and a boutique” since the original investors are ALL men. With his significant connections in the retail business, Harris left the mortgage business to start Blush. All the merchandise is current season with lots of overstocked labels: BCBG, Laundry, Cheetah B, Kay Unger and his own private labels: Pasha & Kismet.
The wall of shoes says it all: this store is dream come true. Currently, the major draw is Carlos by Carlos Santana ($30-$50 a pair). I also found Joan & David, Donald Pliner and Cole Haan. His collection of evening gowns is fantastic. My favorites are the the blue Nicole Miller (reg. $600/Blush $220), the red Adrianna Papell (reg $220/Blush $89) and the gorgeous green Tadashi (reg. $388/Blush $149). David is pretty CUTE too… Don’t you agree?
If your daughter needs a prom dress or you need a dress for the gala season upon us, I would stop by since David is expecting the arrival of a 100 or so new dresses next week. There are great sundresses, jeans, tops, jackets and fabulous cocktail dresses. The two shown here are under $70 with shoes to match.
Girls, this place is for real. Real Style. Real Deals.
