Both our Lake Oswego and Vancouver stores are open to all Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

No, we don’t offer a discount on clothes, although we do run monthly sale specials. Working with a stylist offers the benefit of having someone who really knows you and knows what works for you.

Yes, our Loyalty Program—Style Points—is a client benefit. Style Points are dollars you may use toward any purchase at The Difference. To get started, you spend $200 and then begin accruing Style Points. You’ll gain one point for every $50 spent. Clients also gain Style Points by hosting events and referring friends.

As a rule, our personal stylists primarily select items we have in inventory. We have a large selection (not everything we have is on the floor) from multiple brands and we can special order items as well. If you have a relationship with a personal stylist and have a need for something we don’t carry, we’ll work with you to find something outside the store.

We believe we are more than just personal stylists – we’re confidence boosters and relationship builders. Because embarking in a relationship with a personal stylist takes thoughtful time, we don’t offer styling services by the hour. Our sales folks (we lovingly refer to them as fashion friends) are always willing to help you when you’re shopping our boutique and looking for the perfect item.

Think of your story. Everyone has one. It’s your true spirit, the essence of you that makes you unique in the world. Likely that is some combination of your lifestyle, your background, your profession, your interests, etc. A style story is the outward expression of your story through clothing, makeup and accessories. We ensure the messages you want to send to the world around you are honored and expressed.

If it’s been some time since your last appointment, we may charge $45 for a refresh appointment with your Personal Stylist.
