The time is now to begin stocking up on those ‘Transition’ pieces for your boutique. You won’t find everyone selling them yet but when you see an opportunity go for it. It’s not too early even to begin changing up your window displays. People love summer but they also live to start thinking about fall and the changing leaves, chilly evenings and Thanksgiving feasts! Give them that opportunity to let their minds wander (and an outfit to visualize themselves in). The most important thing about the ‘Transition’ season is that you buy clothes that actually are ‘Transition.’ Not fall. Keep colors on the lighter side and fabrics not too thick for now.
By no means to you need to make a complete switch up of stock at this point. It is still HOT, at least where I am, and people are still dressing for the season. Read my last blog about the summer sale for tips.
