Long Tall T-Girls

10 (2)

We have all experienced challenges with shopping at one point in our lives.  Whether it was selecting accessories that best complimented a dress, putting an outfit together, determining our correct size(s) or simply working up the courage to set a foot (high-heeled or otherwise) into a store.

I cannot tell you how much money I’ve spent over the course of my life in purchasing the wrong size of something.  Working up the courage to talk to a salesperson in a store has changed my life, not only in expanding my wardrobe but also in overall change in my confidence.  In my experience salesclerks have been extraordinary helpful and have gone out of their way to help.

However, I have to say I have never had an experience like the shopping experience I had yesterday.  Last night the MN T-Girls had our monthly outing and we were treated to a private shopping event by the wonderful staff at Long Tall Sally in the Mall of America.  Long Tall Sally is a clothing boutique that carries clothes designed for women 5’8” and taller (up to size 20) and sells shoes that range from 10 – 15.  Basically, it’s a haven for girls like myself.

Shopping can be an intimidating event as we’ve all needed to work up our courage to simply start building a wardrobe but also in navigating a new world of sizing.  However Wanda, Cindy and Kiersten couldn’t have been more amazing.  The event started after the store closed to regular shoppers and for the next two hours they helped us find clothes, put outfits together and helping a few of us buy their very first pair of heels.

The event was a success on so many levels  There were about 15 of us and we all had an amazing time shopping, talking, trying on clothes and meeting new friends.  I fell in love with two dresses, one of which is perfect for Saturday night, the other perfect for Sunday morning.  I will let you decide which is which.

I really want to thank the members of the MN T-Girls who come to shop and have fun, and I really want to extend my thanks and appreciation to Long Tall Sally and their incredible staff.  It was such an amazing night and the staff provided incomparable service and an unforgettable experience.

    Looks as though you all had a super time.

    Not my type of shop because I don’t make the minimum height but still would have liked to have gone out in your group.

    Please keep the posts coming.

  2. Melissa there were things there that would fit shorter ladies. Hannah the black one is definitely the cutest. Last night was another wonderful event and for myself a new experience. The ladies at Long Tall Sally were SO cool and helpful. Everyone seemed to have a great time. My plan was to keep my spending under $100, that went out the window or better stated into the shopping bag fast, haha. Thanks again for setting this up and the wonderful ladies at Long Tall Sally.

    1. They also have UK outlets and web presence so must give them a closer look as I had rather written them off not being tall.

I know here in Cincinnati their are a couple of stores i visit as Stacy and sometimes in guy mode, it just can’t be helped! In either case if your confident in who you are and you just ask if i can try something on i’ve found most all woman to be very helpful and offer assistance.
