My Favorite Sales Associate – Wendy Levine

Gretchen Neels with Wendy Levine

I’ve known many, many sales people over the years and there is no one quite like Wendy Levine who works her magic in the designer department at Neiman Marcus at Tyson’s Corner (McLean, Virginia). She has a great eye and can really help put together looks that are fresh, modern and perfectly understated. If you don’t think there are any good sales people out there, think again! Here are five reasons why she should be your go-to sales person the next time you need to refresh your wardrobe, buy a new interview suit, or learn why that Gucci dress costs what it does.

1. Wendy knows her merchandise. You will save oodles of time if you call her the day before you plan to shop. Give her your sizes, budget and what it is you’re looking for, and she’ll have a dressing room waiting for you full of things you never knew you needed!

2. Wendy’s honest. She will tell you if the St. John pants don’t flatter or if the Armani jacket doesn’t work, and find you something that does.

3. Wendy understands the DC professional. Whether you work on Capitol Hill, K Street, or a DC suburb, she’ll always select what’s appropriate.

4. Wendy isn’t pushy. Of course she works on commission like everyone else, but her goal is to make you look great while building a long-term relationship with you. She’s so good at what she does, you’ll wonder what you ever did without her.

5. Wendy will look out for you and make life easier. Once she’s worked with you a few times, she’s happy to send things on approval. If you’ve read our I Hate to Shop! e-books, you know that stores no longer “buy deep,” and sizes are always an issue. Let her pull a few things in your size at the start of each season and send them along; what could be better than that?

Neels & Company hosts small, private shopping events at Neiman’s from time to time. If you’d like to be on our invitation list, just email us and let us know you’re interested. I’d love to introduce you to Wendy!
