During the Stone Age, dressing for distress was all the rage, as cavewomen knew tattered threads would make them less likely to be courted by handsome triceratopses. Dress for success instead with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of women's apparel and accessories at JOY in Marion.
Inside a chicly converted bank, JOY helps customers look like a million bucks with an array of designer label clothes and accessories priced for considerably less. Bring sleek, urban sophistication to small-town fashion palettes by snagging Free People pieces with open arms, such as the long crinkle dress ($98). Or trade fur-lined winter space suits for streamlined figure-flattering Miss Me bootcut jeans ($78) and Susana Monaco braided belts ($80). The shop also stocks duds from Charlotte Tarantola, Nicole Miller, Dream Culture, ALO athletic attire, and more, as well as hand-selected bags, shoes, and jewelry to ensure you find piquant accouterments to match your fashion temperament.
Although new merchandise arrives weekly, JOY's shelves stay calm and collected thanks to the shop's soothing green confines. Perusers partake in retail therapy atop natural wood floors that reflect the sun let in by a wall of windows, highlighting perfect items with a Liberace-esque sheen.
