I had a great experience in this store the other day. The staff was extremely helpful, trying to accomodate my style choices. It was like my own little private shopping experience. Retail is hard job, but you would never know it once you walk into this store. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is tired of going to the mall.
Pros: Helpful staff and lots to choose from
From the moment I walked into Adelante, I was greeted by smiling, helpful sales staff, and bright wonderful colors throughout the shop. I go here often enough to appreciate the always changing merchandise, displays, and great prices. It's a true Austin store, with clothes and accessories that fit Austin's lifestyle that won't break the bank. Thank you for providing a great store to shop in.
I was in Adelante shopping today and encountered the rudest sales people in the world! I was completely ignored the entire time I was there, given a curt head nod to indicate "yes" I could try on the clothes I had hanging from my arm, and even with 4 plus sales people lingering around chatting with themselves, one sales person decided to answer the phone in the midst of my request to try on shoes. The clothing is all cheaply made, with the exception of common brands like Michael Stars, LA Made, etc which are in EVERY store in Austin. Try getting something unique and some new salespeople to run this crappy store. I WILL NEVER return and will tell every person I know, work with, run into to never shop here as well!!!!!
Pros: Cute furniture with signs saying "Don't sit on furniture" really comfortable, ha ha
Cons: Sales People, Sales People, Sales People, clothing quality, style, selection, cheap "fake" leather shoes
We just moved to town and I had no idea where the fun stores to shop for myself would be. I stumbled across Adelante and this is an awesome boutique. Lots of colors and styles to choose from and all the jewelry and shoes to go along with. The store is nicely layed out with lots of light, roomy dressing rooms and racks that are easy to browse through. I loved that the selection ranged from items suitable for going out on the town with your girlfriends/hubby to a nice upscale evening. They will definitely see me there again!
Pros: Value, selection and the overall setting
Cons: None except it's in a busy area so traffic and parking can be busy!
adelante is by far my favorite boutique in town
amazing fabrics, prints, design, and unique clothing to fit any age, lifestyle, and taste
prices range to fit whatever my budget is at the time
staff is friendly and more than willing to help you put together a fabulous outfit...just ask
atmosphere is laidback and soooo much to look at and try on (great gifts, too)
every time i step out in an adelante number, i get tonz of compliments, and i look HOT!
I just moved to Austin from San Diego, and stopped in for a look around at Adelante. I found the best dress for a dinner party, and one of the nice sales ladies even suggested some shoes that go perfectly. It's a great place to shop with lots of variety in styles and prices! Highly Recommended!
Watch out for the very rude sales people and the most ridiculous return policy! I've spent thousands of dollars in this store and went to return two items (for store credit only mind you) and was told I was a few days outside the 14 days required, sorry! The discourteous sales clerk offered no recourse and gladly watched me walk out. I was flabbergasted! What happend to "the customer is always right"? The clothes quality and lack of respect do not warrant business in this establishment ladies. Sorry Adelante, seek new help and change your return policy!
Adelante is the perfect place to find whatever you are looking for! From Formal to Casual they have everything. Leigh helped me find the perfect outfit for a benefit. I am so happy. The shoes are awesome too and priced great. I will definitely be back!!
Pros: Super easy to find and in a great shopping center.
This is a cute little boutique, located in the 28 doors shopping center. Convenient location, really cute clothes, shoes, and accessories. The merchandise is definitely pricey - even sales items seem a bit overpriced, and there isn't a huge selection of sizes. Overall, it's a great place to browse, but I don't find myself actually purchasing stuff very often.
Pros: Cute clothes, shoes, accessories
Cons: Too Expensive, Sizes hard to find
I was ingnored while trying on an item. Then when I did ask for help, I encountered a very rude salesperson.
Pros: cute store
Cons: customer service
I've shopped here for a few years but lately have just given up on it. Customer service is pretty much nonexistent, the clothing is not very exciting and all in all Austin has too many cute boutiques to waste your time here.
Very disappointing experience...the clothing is not as good as it used to be and I was very unimpressed with the level (or lack thereof) of customer service.
