Mode Needs You!

3 02 2009

modeimageOh, dear. We are kind of getting to that point where we really can’t take any more of this economic drudgery… So, sorry to be the bearers of yet more bad news, but it seems as though tough times have fallen upon Mode Apparel.


Seems they are having a big ol’ sale to scrape together some cash. So, if you’ve got some, spread the love. And get some cool threads while you’re at it?

We would really hate to see Mode go. Damn you, economy. I mean really, what’s it going to take for you to get off your ass and get back in proper working order?

Here are the deets straight from the Mode girls (p.s. a la mode means “in the fashion.” I watched Little Miss Sunshine” the other day and that is what I learned from it. Also, that Steve Carrell is kind of attractive. What did I just say? Yeah. You heard me.)

Hello friends a la mode,

As you know this is a bad economy we are living in… wish we had crystal ball but we did not… anyway, mode is unfortunately becoming very close to closing our doors like so many other small businesses in Austin already… we obviously do not want this to happen and we are trying to stay optimistic but we must also be realistic.
So since this is such a shitty economy… we are going to continue our “semi-barter” sale because I know that no one has money. I put the quotes around semi-barter sale because basically we will pretty much take any price for our things (beggers can’t be chosers!!!!)! Anyway, hope you all are not suffering too bad.
Best wishes!!!

Shop: Mode Apparel

We like fashion. There. We said it. We watch Project Runway and What Not To Wear. We don’t go to HEB in our pajamas. Basically, we try and give a damn. And though our budgets usually send us the way of thrift stores, Target and the sales rack at the Gap, we love to support a local store when we can (and you don’t really have to worry that your co-worker will show up in the same thing… man we hate that).

Mode Apparel on Cesar Chavez is a dark little rocker-style boutique loaded with awesome sunglasses, great tops for guys and girls, and even some home decor and bath and beauty products (we bought some yummy orange bubble bath).

Run by two sisters, Mode aims to keep their stuff on the affordable side, which we totally appreciate. Every item we saw on our visit was under $100. And they’ve got a sale going on, so now’s the time! Hustle over and check it out. We want to keep shops like this around — and keep those boring architect offices that seem to be taking over all the commercial rental space to a minimum. Don’t ya think?
