Best of Boston 2007 Salesclerk
Theres more to upscale salesmanship than strategically doled-out snootiness. In her 30 years at the ring-for-entry Alan Bilzerian boutique, Bilzerian-Kelly (Alans sister) has developed a knack for divining what customers want and, better yet, what they need. Shell know, for instance, to break the news gently but firmly that, alas, that fabulous Alexander McQueen corset is not a good look for your untoned upper armsbut that you might give this Rick Owens tunic a try. Her unfailing candor doesnt crowd out her dry sense of humor, though, which can turn a quick shopping stop into a memorable event.
