Caché helps women turn heads with fun, vibrant outfits that transition easily from day to night. From lifestyle sportswear to cocktail dresses, the national specialty boutique has what women need to look fabulous before, during, and after their 9-to-5. To ensure a personalized shopping experience, stylists stand ready to advise customers in every boutique.

Though these looks change from season to season, Caché is known for incorporating bold prints and patterns into everything from floral pants and dresses to animal-print tops. On the flip side, Caché also maintains an entire collection of LBDs—little black dresses—that fit in just as well at a cocktail party as they do at the office.

In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
