DEPARTMENT STORES PARIS

Discover your Paris chic at Printemps for a fantastic shopping experience.Plan a visit to one of the most famous Parisian department stores.

Printemps department stores carry a wide range of designer brand names and luxury fashions. This is one of my fav places in Paris on a rainy day ….less crowded …and  easier to shop than Galerie Lafayette!

During the Christmas season, the front windows are decorated by famous decorators and animated characters attracting millions of visitors each year.

Another great spot is the très chic Le Bon Marché department store, with its amazing clothing and accessories and excellent food store La Grande Épicerie. You won’t see as many tourists in this sleek Paris department store.You’re more likely to be surrounded by stylish Parisiennes as they shop for French chic pieces.

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!

Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!
