Over the past month, ULTA, Charming Charlie’s and Dress Barn have come to Texarkana. Just in case you haven’t had the time to visit any of them, here are some short reviews of the stores.
ULTA is the epitome of all beauty supply stores. It can only be described as a mixture of Bath and Body Works, Sephora, the fragrance counter at Dillards, the drugstore makeup aisles in Walgreens and Sally Beauty Supply. In addition to these things, ULTA also offers manicures, hair stylings and dermatological treatments. With all of these different items ULTA has to sell, it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed on your first visit. However, it’s easy to begin roaming aimlessly down aisles, wondering who in their right mind would buy some of the strange products sold in the store. Granted, ULTA probably has any beauty product imaginable, as long as customers don’t mind paying a little more.
Charming Charlie’s is the place to go if you want to find accessories that perfectly match your new outfit. The store is largely color-coordinated, which makes it easy to find earrings and a matching scarf, or a purse in your favorite color. The store also sells a variety of clothes at relatively inexpensive prices. Charming Charlie’s would be a great place to buy gifts for friends or to waste time looking at shiny things.
Dress Barn is obviously not the store a teenaged girl would usually shop in. However, it could be a good place to buy a mom or a grandma a gift card for her birthday. Dress Barn offers many styles of dresses, as well as other types of clothes. Most of the dresses are sophisticated business-style, or formal. The store’s prices are not outrageous, although they are not cheap. Similar products at Dillard’s would be much more expensive.
