Wendy Gow is a savvy and engaging presenter
Left the workshop feeling confident
"The Lily Winston team put together a day for 400 of our employees that was well tailored to our corporate culture and our brand. It was informative, challenging, and enjoyable. Wendy Gow is a savvy and engaging presenter who tells the truth and provides solutions. We immediately began receiving thanks from dozens of attendees. We could not be happier that we chose Lily Winston."

Completely changed my appearance
“We wanted to hold a special and unique training session for our large HR Service Center team who had been through a lot of change over the past year. We wanted it to be informative, educational, fun and personal. We worked with Wendy to design a workshop covering business etiquette, first impressions and professional image. The full-day workshop was a great success as it hit all the points we were looking for. Everyone learned some great etiquette techniques for a wide variety of business situations ranging from the office environment to entertaining situations. Everyone learned first impression tips and techniques for meeting and working with a wide range of employees and customers. And we learned the real but often overlooked value of professional image as Wendy and her team taught useful techniques for looking your best for appearance, hair, makeup for the women, and skin care for all. Wendy and her team even completed a number of mini-makeovers to show how small changes and techniques can build self-confidence. Everyone left the workshop feeling confident with some new tricks for looking, feeling, and acting their best. It was a great day and a great reward for the team.”

100 tons had been lifted off my back
"Your work with me on my wardrobe has completely changed my appearance and substantially increased my self-confidence! The pieces that you helped me find and purchase were the foundation for a new wardrobe and a new look that has served me very well over the past few months. With your inspiration, I gutted my closet and started afresh and now I have a much less packed closet but, ironically, much more to wear! Most days I need to look fairly corporate but on my patient care days, I have ample options to look comfortable and approachable. It is nice to have both options!"

Overflowing closets but nothing to wear…
"My shopping experience with Wendy felt like 100 tons had been lifted off my back. Never again would I stand in the middle of a department store and wonder which direction to turn, what to try on and what to buy. Wendy helped me select items for my new wardrobe that have elevated my image, my confidence and my potential for success in business. I have been armed with a new personal and professional outlook. All the stress and decision making about every aspect of my wardrobe has been transferred. Now I can concentrate on what I do well, my job at home and in the field. Not only have I found renewed strength and motivation, but my customers have specifically asked me “what’s new about you?” – they have taken note, and my new image has made a positive and professional impression. I couldn’t ask for more. Thank you Wendy, I am truly grateful. I am looking forward to our next season of shopping."

Made me look like a million dollars
"While transitioning from a full time corporate job to an outside counsel job and finally to almost real retirement, I found I had overflowing closets, but couldn’t find anything suitable to wear. An acquaintance suggested that I contact email@example.com for help with organizing my closets. Wendy came over to my home and helped review what I had. With her help, we organized the stuff into outfits and seasons. Slowly, albeit painfully, I’m finally giving up outfits and pieces that are no longer useful, either because of fit or because their function doesn’t match my current lifestyle. Wendy is now helping me shop to fill in the gaps and still comes over 2-4 times a year to make sure I’m on track and help create new and interesting outfit combinations. Having her help me shop is really great because through her I have access to a team of professionals and to stores not in the area without having to go on tiring and expensive shopping trips to Atlanta or New York. I’m currently looking forward to her new venture into creating a ‘Virtual Closet’ so I can easily review my current outfits."

Now, I can't imagine shopping without her
"Just wanted you to know that I get compliments on my new wardrobe wherever I go! The clothes you selected are a delight - classic yet stylish, flattering to both my physique and my personality. Wearing them gives me confidence that I make a positive first impression which is critical to my business success; this has been a great investment. It has been such a pleasure working with you and your associates - you made me feel so at ease. I will see you soon as my 25th high school reunion is a few months away and I know you can make me look like a million dollars!"

Wendy worked with me to rebuild my wardrobe
"I used to think that I was a great shopper...until I met Wendy. Now, I can't imagine shopping without her. I have a demanding career and I'm the mother of a young child, so I need a wardrobe that does triple duty: a sophisticated professional wardrobe for my work with executives and clients, a business casual wardrobe for my casual days in the office, and a stylish weekend wardrobe that can stand the abuse of a 6-month old. Wendy has helped me put all of this together, and has taught me how to mix and match various pieces for maximum versatility. Also, now that Wendy knows what sizes and styles suit me, she searches the country for the best items for me, often bringing me pieces from New York, Atlanta, etc. This service is invaluable - not only do I get great items that are not available in my local stores but I don't even have to leave my house - Wendy brings the clothes to me and I can shop in the privacy of my own living room."

Your associates were amazing
"With three children, a demanding job and countless pulls on my time, I'd long neglected my professional attire. Wendy worked with me to rebuild my wardrobe, giving me a professional image to match the success and position I've earned in my career. Not only that, she's made it fun and easyPacking for overnight business trips used to be a chore. Wendy's made it a breeze to pull outfits together and get packed in a snap."
Kristen Aleksa, Associate Vice President,
She is the epitome of style
"I cannot thank you enough for the amazing experience I had shopping with you. You have truly given me the confidence I need to be a strong woman. Now I know how to look sophisticated and classy with a punch of fun colors. Your associates were amazing and made me feel like a beautiful woman. Thank you for the time you spent with me and the considerations you put in ahead of time. I cannot wait to see you again."
Shelley Beckman, Elementary Education
So beautiful and sophisticated
"What a treat to hear Wendy Bryant Gow present fashion up-dates to the Raleigh Professional Women's Forum and Friends of the Wake County Bar Association! Wendy's knowledge about current trends as well as fashion "know how" in wardrobe building are of interest to all savvy women. Her easy going style and enthusiasm strikes a great balance as she answers questions from her audiences. She is the epitome of style herself and an incentive to all women to seek an individual style of their own."

A fresher, more sophisticated level
"Wendy, I so appreciate your expertise in assisting me with my business attire. I can't tell you when I have been so excited and felt so empowered. I was anxious at first, but you and your associates completely put me at ease. The clothes that you selected are so beautiful and sophisticated. There is simply no way I could have chosen these clothes on my own, but your thoughtful selections made me feel like you could read my mind. Spending the day with you is a treasured memory, much like being with friends and family. Your services have totally exceeded my expectations. I recommend your services, without reservation, to anyone who seeks genuine advice on building a wardrobe."

A new world of designers and styles to my closet
"Wendy has taken my sense of style to a fresher, more sophisticated level. She has helped me to look with a discerning eye for the colors, fabrics and silhouettes that feel most like who I am. We are building a wardrobe of beautiful pieces that will stand the test of time- and we are doing it within a budget that feels comfortable."
Maryanne B.Randolph, Clinical Nurse,
"After 20 years as a broadcast journalist, I'd grown weary of the polyester "anchor uniforms" that are commonplace on nightly newscasts. Wendy introduced a new world of designers and styles to my closet, without breaking the bank. She helped me realize I didn't have to wear a dark blazer every night to be credible. She also conquered the television challenge: how to keep the camera from adding 10 pounds! Wendy updated my wardrobe with classic pieces and a few fun, contemporary items. They not only fit better; they're much more flattering both on camera and in person. I feel confident in the clothes she found for me and know I can present a credible and fashionable front whether I'm hosting my community affairs program or giving a speech. Wendy's talent and enthusiasm make her a pleasure to work with. She clearly loves what she does."
