Designer fashion is not just for the young and wealthy—it should be enjoyed by all, said Suki Mourlam, owner of Closet Revival in Plano.

The resale boutique offers a wide variety of women’s name-brand clothing and accessories as well as high-end designer items. Merchandise ranges from stylish leisurewear for lounging while working from home all the way to a new Gucci handbag for a night on the town.

“We have anywhere from Banana Republic, Talbots, Ann Taylor, all the way to Chanel,” Mourlam said. “We have something for everybody. We have $10 items to $5,000 items.”

Resale shopping has many perks for customers, Mourlam said. Shoppers are able to score a great deal while cutting back on waste, and items not purchased are donated to Arms of Hope, a Christian nonprofit that helps children and single-moms in need, according to its website.

“It’s a win-win,” Mourlam said. “Resale is the next big thing for retail, and I am very happy to be part of it.”

One thing that sets Closet Revival apart from other resale stores is that all items are like-new and on-trend. As such, Mourlam said she has to be strategic when it comes to purchasing items.

What also makes Closet Revival different is its emphasis on a personalized shopping experience. The store’s employees work with shoppers to help them find exactly what they are looking for. If the boutique does not have the item at that time, customers can leave their information to be notified in case it comes in later.

“[Our associates] are friendly, they are helpful, and they are knowledgeable,” she said. “They do a lot of research, so they know about all of the items before they go on the [sales] floor.”

Closet Revival’s “brother location,” Protocol, opened in November and is run by Mourlam’s daughter and son-in-law. Located only a few doors down from Closet Revival, it offers the same services and high-end products for men.
