Le Tote is a fashion subscription service that allows their subscribers to try out new fashions on a rental basis and then send them back to receive new items. We recently heard about the service and wanted to know more about them so we conducted a research of the company and made some interesting discoveries. Here are 10 things that you probably didn’t know about Le Tote.
1. Their packages are delivered in boxes called “totes”
The clothing subscription services makes a delivery to clients one time per month for a fee in boxes of clothing and accessories that they call “totes.” Each one will be different, and it gives subscribers something new and exciting to look forward to each month. The items that are sent are different every month so you won’t have to worry about ever getting duplicate shipments.
2. Le Tote helps cut down on buyer remorse
Have you ever purchased an article of clothing or an accessory that you liked at the time, only to discover that there was something about it that you didn’t notice when you were trying it on? This is how our closets become overflowing with items that never get worn and it creates clutter or a need to pack up expensive, unworn items to donate to charities. While its good for the charities it isn’t good for your closet space or your pocket book. With Le Tote this isn’t an issue because if you don’t like the selection you’re under no obligation to purchase it, you simply send it back to the company.
3. They offer three different plans
With the Le Tote subscription service you can tailor your experience to receive either five items, eight items or 10 items per month. You can also indicate whether you want to receive accessories to go along with the new clothing selections. To receive five items per month the subscription fee is $69 per month. If you choose the eight item option it will cost you $89 per month and if you choose the 10 items option, the subscription fee is $109 per month.
4. The items aren’t yours to keep unless you want to pay extra
The subscription fees are just for sending the items out to you. You can keep the items if you want. First check the price that they are charging for them and if you agree with the value, simply indicate this on your account and you will be automatically charged. Shipping is free both ways but if you want to spend an extra $5 you can purchase insurance to cover and costs if the clothing you wear become damaged before you send them back.
5. They choose the items to send
The items that you receive monthly are based on a short quiz that you complete regarding your preferences. A personal stylist with Le Tote makes the choices about what to send you based upon your style profile. If you’re disappointed with a shipment you can make a few swaps of alternates that they have that you would prefer. You’re given the opportunity to preview your tote before your personal stylist has it shipped out.
6. Many name brand items are provided
Many of the items that you will receive include name brand selections. Some of the brands that they carry include MPG, French Connection, Calvin Klein Kenneth Cole, Kate Spade, Nike Free People Movement House of Harlow and others. There are thousands of items on their site that you can shop from as well.
7. Items arrive quickly
One of the things that subscribers enjoy about Le Tote is their fast shipping. It doesn’t take weeks for items to arrive at your doorstep. Instead, Le Tote takes advantage of free 2 to 3 day priority shipping so you won’t have to wait long to enjoy your tote.
8. You can wear them as long as you like
You don’t have to make a decision about whether or not to keep the items that you receive from Le Tote. They encourage you to wear the clothing and the accessories to get a feel for them. After you’ve worn them a few times then decide if you want to return them or purchase them.
9. The items are deeply discounted
One of the things that makes Le Tote such a great option is that the clothing and accessories that are sent are all offered for purchase at a discounted price. In fact, the prices are usually at about 50% of the suggested retail value which represents quite a savings on high quality name brand items.
10. They also offer a maternity plan
If you’re expecting a baby then you can still benefit from using the Le Tote subscription service. They offer a full line of maternity clothing. Their selections are modified to provide you with high quality clothing and accessories through the full 9 months of pregnancy as well as the period afterwards when your body is in the process of returning to its pre-pregnancy state.
