Meet Our Team ❥




The Fall 2015 season is among us and Sage is ready for another great season of fashion. The beauty of our boutique is the one-on-one personal shopping you get with any of our team members. All of our girls have a different take on style; for example, we could all be wearing the same top yet have totally different looks.

Someone wise once said:

"Fashion is what you're offered four times a year and style is what you choose to do with it."

We love embracing everyone's individuality and we've come to the conclusion that it benefits our customers too! We have some new stylists on board and would like to introduce each of our team members with 10 style-personality questions so you can learn a little bit more about their style. Don't forget to pop in and say hi! We would love to play dress up with you. 

>> Sage Clothing is at Avalon in Alpharetta, GA for any new readers <<
