We took our purchases to the till (nightwear for the sister and the shoes below for me) but Amie's didn't have a price on. She asked how much (as you do!) and was given the price. Then the assistant standing next to my sister said "I can give you an extra 40% off that if you like" "How?" asked my sister somewhat suspiciously. It turns out that the staff are given a certain number of friends and family promotion cards and that the "Spring" ones expired that day. She had some left and wanted to do something nice for us: we were total strangers! And who says human kindness is dead!
If you're a great sales assistant who knows their fashion and style and secretly dreams of being a super stylist then Elle have the perfect competition for you! Elle are after the high-street heroes who style the nation. If you work in retail and want to be an ELLE stylist, they're offering you the chance! ELLE is launching a nationwide search for talented shop girls – and boys – who have what it takes to become an international stylist.
The winner will get the chance to style a shoot for ELLE, plus an internship on the magazine and expert mentoring from ELLE’s fashion director, Anne-Marie Curtis. You can find out more and enter here.
I'd love you to let me know if you enter - it makes me wish I worked in retail!
Love, Tor xx
