I had not been to St Thomas in years, but moved back and needed a dress for a formal wedding. Alvina helped us and she couldn't have been more amazing. She pulled dresses I wouldn't have even thought of and ended up purchasing. My 5 year old daughter was there too, and she went out of her way to make my little one feel like she was part of the selection process. I have to say this was the best shopping experience I have had in the LONGEST time!

Don't go here! The "store owner" made several promises on alterations and accessories to make a formal dress purchase appropriate for my event. The deadlines for having these done came and went on several occasions. My repeated calls were not returned. Once the event was approaching, the alterations on the dress were so amateurish, even the "owner" was embarrassed. Although the dress was never taken from the store, they refused a refund. Do not trust anything that is said by the people at this store. They will tell you whatever they think you need to hear to complete the sale, whether they can back it up or not. I wish I had read the insider pages reviews before I happened to wander into this store. The numerous poor reviews are completely justified. Save yourself misery and money, and stay away.

I was in this store in May and I believe they moved to the Westlake area in South Austin on June 15th. If you find the location let me know, I have yet to go looking, but this store Rocks!!!

We heard from many people that this was a great place to find a prom dress. The dress my daughter wanted was not there, but we were told by Thomas that it could be ordered and would arrive in the store in 10 days and that it would be shipped to us. We bought the dress, and waited. I called one week before my daughter's prom...the snotty sales clerk told me that they were "too busy to look in the back and that they would let me know" I called back 5 hours later because I had not heard anything and they still could not tell me anything. Its five days til prom and nothing......my daughter is on the verge of a meltdown because her dream dress is unaccounted for. NEVER again will we shop at St Thomas or recommend it to anyone!

Just an update! I called St Thomas again today and spoke to a very sweet and understanding lady who was more than happy to search through boxes to find my daughter's dress. What a huge relief to know that the dress has arrived. Here's the kicker...the sales clerk who spoke to me Saturday and told me he was too busy to find out if the dress was there, called me because he read my review and did not think I was completely honest...so here it goes young man, I apologize for being upset Saturday when you could not take time to help a customer. Yes, I did call you an ugly name and I do apologize sincerely for that. It is not something I am proud of. Just shop with caution. We were told 10 days, we purchased on 3/18 and waiting until the following Monday, 10 days was 4/1, our receipt said "cancel date" 4/4 which the clerk informed me, was the "due date". Anyway, the dress is there and my girl is happy.

The first time I ever attempted to walk inside the store I didn't even get to make it past the front door! A lady that works there locked the doors right as I was about to open them. I understand it was Sunday evening and closing time was at 6, but it wasn't even 5:45 yet and she came up and shut the doors and locked them right in front of my face as if she didn't see me! I was at least two feet away from her! Anyways, after what i've read about St. Thomas, and seeing as how I wasn't even able to walk through the doors, I will most certainly NOT be going there again.

This place is a total rip off! I am 30 years old and have done my share of formal dress shopping. I tried on a dress, wrote down the designer and price in order to think about it. I am also a bargain hunter, so I looked on the internet when I got home. St. Thomas had the dress marked at $598 and it is readily available online elsewhere at $298 - that's a 100% mark-up on an already retail price!!! Ultimately I found the dress on e-bay for $278 with free shipping and no tax. St. Thomas is robbing their customers by marking up the dresses so much. The dresses in the store all apear "tired" because they've been tried on so many times! They have snags, missing hooks, etc. My dress from e-bay will arrive brand new from the manufacturer having never been tried on! What a benefit!!! I will never purchase a dress from St. Thomas. And, they've been in financial trouble for years as noted by other reviewers.

Pretentious is the only word for St Thomas, at least as long as they think you're good enough. Went in dressed -up and was greeted and offered wine. Told the owner who was fawning over me that I needed a luncheon dress and that my top price was $400. He immediately began bringing me all kinds of dresses that were $700 and $800, I asked him to stop and he did miraculously find me a selection of $300 - $400 unlined, simple sheath dresses. I quite liked one but wanted to try it on in a size larger than the one I was in. He said he could bring it from his other store which was fine with me and then he told me I had to pay for it. Why would a client be asked to pay for something not even tried on yet that's being sent over from the stores own stock? Why would I pay for something I hadn't tried on? As soon as I declined to pay for the dress I could have dropped dead at their feet, they ignored me completely. Left my card and asked them to please call me when they brought the dress over so I could try it on - of course I never heard from them again.
Over the years I've bought many prom dresses from St Thomas - and I think that's probably the best they have to offer anymore, they are a prom store. They cannot compete on any level with the other high end stores in Domain. Offering wine and being overly aggressive is so last century.

I went to St. Thomas looking for a prom dress, and admit that I found several that I fell in love with. The sales associate who helped me was very honest and sweet. The dress I ended up picking was a size too big, and it needed to be altered.

When the alteration lady was looking at what needed to be done, she didn't mark or measure the dress, just simply said, "I think 1 inch will be good." At the time, I didn't think anything of it, until I picked up the dress.

The dress was a tad bit too tight, and her guesstimation on an inch was a little off. When she came back out to look at my problem, she insisted that I had gained weight between then and when I had originially bought the dress... more than once. It had been a week.

She was incredibly rude, insisting that it was my fault the dress didnt fit, when she never even measured the changes to be done in the first place.

never buying from here again.

Worst experience with a store I have ever had. Suggested retail for a dress I purchased was 430.0 They charged me 695.0 When I tried to cancel the order the owner would not talk to me. Said I could only have a store credit. They are nothing but crooks!

For the love of shopping, this store carries Marc by Marc Jacobs.. period. The most beautiful dresses in Austin, easily. Fantiastic upscale boutique.. Although it irks me when I go in, being a younger shopoper I'm usually ignored until I ask a specific question, then once they realize I know what I'm talking about and looking for they help me. I feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Women sometimes... soooo I suppose bottom line, AMAZING CLOTHES AND SPECIAL OCCASSION DRESSES, stuffy service.

The service is a joke

I was going to purchase 2 dresses to wear for my wedding and honeymoon. The dresses were beautiful and the sales reps are fantastic(friendly, helpful and honest). However, when I was going to pay for the dress, I realized that there was a stain and promptly ask the sales rep if the store can attempt to move it. The poor sales lady went to ask the tailor, but her conversation was over heard by the owner, Thomas. The owner started yelling at the sales rep for 'promising' me that the store will remove the stain, and he was absolutely rude in his manner (yelling at the sales rep in front of everyone in the store). He even accused me that I was trying to 'get the dress for free' when I was standing right there! I felt awful for the sales lady because she was wonderful, but the owner have absolutely ruined the shopping experience. I don't think I will ever step in there again and advise shoppers to go other places.

There are many wonderful stores in the Domain area, Saks is close and Neman Marcus always offer wonderful services with high fashion clothing. I can't understand why anyone want to get stuck in this awful store.

Do not buy a prom dress at St. Thomas.My daughter bought her prom dress from St. Thomas in the Domain. We asked if they kept records of dresses bought for the different schools (to avoid seeing your twin at your prom). They said no, they didn't do that, but reassured us that they only buy 3 dresses in a style and don't get more than one of the same size. They also told us that with on-line purchases, it was impossible to keep track. (1st of all I can't even access their on-line site and 2nd-if someone is paying hundreds of dollars for a dress and they are within driving distance, many if not all, would make the drive to ensure the dress fit and looked good.)We confidently bought the dress and began the shoe and accessory search. Three weeks later a team mate and friend of my daughter's comes into the locker room all excited to show everyone the prom dress she had purchased the day before. It was not only the exact same dress but also the same size. St. Thomas does not give refunds and only allows 3 days to make an exchange. In the end the girls did not go to prom looking identical, but it has permanently affected their relationship (and the adults friendship has been damaged as well). St. Thomas specializes in formal dresses, keeping track of the different area schools and their proms should be a service they gladly offer.

Look out for returned clothing. They took used clothes and put them back on the rack at full price. Smell the pits!

The place stinks. Go anywhere else!

I suggest you go elsewhere to shop... so many better places in Austin such as By George, Julian Gold, or Louis Vuitton. The owners are very rude plus I hear they are going out of business. I wouldn't waste your time shopping for dresses in this place.

AM...It sounds like you were talking to Susan on the phone. They usually try to keep her hidden in the back of the store away from customers. The owner is always making fun of customers so you're not the first.

I travel 300 miles to St Thomas just to buy formal gowns. I live in Harlingen Texas and I have at least 5 galas to go per year. I can always count on St Thomas to have the best evening gowns and the best service. I recommend St Thomas to anyone who wants to look spectacular at their next event.

I've never been treated as rudely as I was by the people at this particular boutique! The lady who was supposed to be aiding me in my first shopping experience there was standoff-ish and rude in her sarcasm. I was the only patron there at the time; she had no desire to tell me of their newest styles or designers, ect.
I called to speak with management in regards to some comments she had made. While the owner was unavailable, the lady who answered the phone was also poor in manners and called me names, yelled at me through the phone that she had other things to do, demanded that I never call again, and to "...just leave me alone!"
When I finally did reach the owner, now concerning the previous phone incident, he insisted it couldn't have been anyone there and made excuses for the behaviour. After the call was supposedly ended, I could hear him making fun of me to the other employees. I don't know if this was intentional or not.
Regardless of the designer or cost, respect is invaluable and should always come first! I tell anyone who is interested in shopping here about these horrible experiences-three instances now!-and refer them to places such as Anne Fontaine instead, where the service is much higher in quality... and the designers are more sophisticated.
