Out and About

It’s been way too long since we’ve done an ‘out and about’ post. So here goes!

We received a short and sweet email from Shannon Von Palleske, it reads;

“Thank you for helping me choose the perfect dress for my 10 year vow renewal in Heidelberg Germany”

Shannon chose a 1960’s green empire waist ribbon lace dress from The Cat’s Meow for her special day.

We have recently received a follow up email from Lisa Eisen. You may remember when we first heard from Lisa in December of 2013, as posted here>. Now we have a great shot from her sister-in-laws big day. The bride wore a stunningly flawless 1960’s Christian Dior Couture dress. Lisa also writes;

Hey to all the staff at The Cat’s Meow,
Just wanted to send you an update, a year later, from my brother’s wedding.  Last January my sister-in-law and I went shopping in your store.  Literally a half hour later we walked out with her absolutely perfect wedding dress.  With minimal alterations, she and my brother finally tied the knot in a New Years Eve celebration.  Gorgeous wedding, gorgeous gown, gorgeous bride, wonderful sister-in-law…how did we all get so lucky?!
Thanks again for all of your help and for your fabulous stock of dresses.  I’m always recommending you guys for anyone looking for something specific for any sort of event.  Love your store!  I’ve attached a picture of the blushing bride.

♥We really have the best customers! ♥

Our lovely customer Lisa had purchased a 1950’s hand dyed and sequined circle skirt as well as a pair of new Jimmy Choo pumps from us awhile back. On Christmas eve we received an email of thanks from her, she states;

“You don’t remember this skirt because it’s not being worn in skirt form. I got creative and decided to “dress it up!” Now it’s purring purr-fectly!!! Thanks Cat’s Meow, I’m off to knock Santa’s socks off :)”

Bravo Lisa! Such a great look as a mini.

Do you have a snap of yourself in one of our pieces? We would love to showcase your look here on our ‘Out and About’ page. Please forward your pics to us at

We received an email from our customer Lynn about her daughter Sabryna’s prom dress that she purchased from The Cat’s Meow. She states;

“Hi there,
We have been meaning to send these photos over to you since my daughter,
Sabryna’s Prom in May. Great evening, Fabulous dress.  With the exception of
a grosgrain ribbon and crinoline which we needed to buy,  the dress was a
perfect fit, length and everything.
Thank you so much. FYI your staff are terrific.
Lynn Ruggles”
