Warby Parker, the eyewear brand known for its high-quality, fashionable, affordable specs, is opening its first St. Louis store this Saturday, November 11. The store is in the heart of the Central West End at 304 North Euclid Ave, a space previously occupied by Kit and Ace. I got to preview this new Warby Parker St. Louis location, and it is everything we need right now in the Lou.
This new store has a cool library feel. All the eyewear sits on open wooden shelves with colorful books for decor and a curated collection of books for purchase.
Warby Parker St. Louis also has a very joyous and welcoming vibe because of the colorful mural done by St. Louis artist, William LaChance. It’s an ideal backdrop for a bomb Instagram shot, don’t you think?
From what I heard, there are going to be some sweet treats at the grand opening this Saturday. In addition, for a limited time only, the St. Louis store will exclusively sell the crystal sunglasses below. Crystal frames with mirror lenses are so fly right now. I actually took home a similar pair, the Ormsby sunglasses in crystal aqua with mirror lenses.
Another cool perk of the Warby Parker St. Louis store is the availability of the eye exam service. Not all Warby Parker locations offer eye exams, but ours will!

I was invited to preview the store and received free merchandise as part of my visit. All images and opinions are my own.
