Local “Shoe Lady” Celebrates 25 Years at Store

Earlier this month, Peggy Spencer celebrated her 25th year working with shoes at a department store in Iowa. She first started way back in 1984 (a year that I personally remember because, well, that’s the year I was born) and has since become one of three managers in the store. To her friends, she’s just Peggy, but to the majority of customers who happen her way, she’s known as “The Shoe Lady.” In fact, Spencer even admits to often hearing the phrase “There’s the shoe lady” from time to time. When I first read this story, I knew that I wanted to share it with you because one, I still can’t believe this lady has been selling the same shoes almost everyday of my entire life, and two, I think it’s a great accomplishment to faithfully serve in one place for so long.

Then ask yourself: Do I have the following shoes in my closet?

How to Emulate Sarah Palin’s Shoe Style

Is Sarah Palin’s resignation a sign that she’ll run for the presidency in 2012, or does she just need a break from the media circus that is the Republican party these days?  There’s no way to know right now, but either way, we’re likely to see less of the Alaskan spitfire for a few months. As a shoe fetishist, I have to say that I’m going to miss her.  Even if her fashion overhaul was funded by her party, I approve of her taste in shoes.  Sarah’s shoe choices mirror her personality– she likes to be polished and powerfully in control.

Shoe Rental: Try Before You Buy

One upside to the dismal economy: an increase in national creativity.  Across the country, consumers are taking creative approaches to obtaining fashionable footwear. Some are taking their old favorites to repair shops, rather than shelling out precious greenbacks for new kicks. Others are swapping clothes and accessories with friends, as the Associated Press recently highlighted in an article titled “Squeezed by Economy, Shoppers become Swappers.” Still others are turning to an age-old technique for preserving limited funds: rental. As highlighted in the video at below, Maggie Snow and Shannon Valitzek, sisters hailing from Boise, Idaho, are offering consumers a chance to save both the earth and a few bucks by renting formal shoes out of their store, One Night Stand.
