Voted #1 Boutique in Austin 2009 by RAREaustin!

I first heard about Solid Gold from my friends when I was moving to Austin a couple of years ago.  I, again, heard about Solid Gold when I started my business about 6 months ago.  I FINALLY went to Solid Gold about a month ago and fell in LOVEEEEEEEEEE!!! I had seriously been missing out!!  Every single time I go in there, I am blown away by all of the great clothes and accessories!  Everything ALWAYS fits amazing and I have never left that store without buying every single thing I tried on!  It’s that awesome!  Not only is it priced for every budget, the SALES are out of this world!! I got a French Connection dress that retailed for $228, for $40!!!  And it fit PERFECT!! I love this place!

I met Katie, the owner of Solid Gold, the very first time I walked into the boutique.  Immediately, she greeted me and said, “You must be Ashley.  It is great to finally meet you! Let me know what I can help you with! And Hey, let’s throw an event together!” I mean, who doesn’t LOVE that!?!?  This is how every boutique needs to be!!  Top notch customer service and an amazing, badass owner who loves what they do!!   My first trip consisted of styling my wonderful friend, Anne Hudson, for the MTV Woodie Awards Red Carpet!  And did we find some great clothes and jewelry?!  DUH!  Not only for her event, but quite a bit for me too! Oops…. Slackin’ on the job and shoppin’ for myself!  Oh well, at least we both looked great!

Katie, you are freakin’ AWESOME!! And thank you for EVERYTHING!!  You definitely have made a loyal customer out of me! :)

Some reviews from the customers:

“Think of Solid Gold as a local “Anthropologie” but better!  It’s got a variety of jewelry, accessories, home goods, bath goods, and gifts…all along side a great selection of clothing goods and shoes. The variety can suit just about anyone since they carry  low range to high range priced items. I dropped by before going to see Gloria at Blink next door, having about 20 minutes to kill, and was enamored by everything in the store! I ended up purchasing some fragrances and soaps for my coworkers as a Christmas present.Katie, the owner, not only completed my purchase, gift wrapped and labeled the gift bags for me, she dropped it off while I was at my appointment with Gloria…now that’s service you will not find at any chain store! Solid Gold is an example of Austin boutique shopping at it’s best!”

“The best boutique I’ve found in Austin. Located on the Eastside, I love making a trip out to Solid Gold, it’s always worth it. Amazing pieces by Mike & Chris, Dace, French Connection, so many more. From wall to wall the store is chock full of stylish items. The buyers/owners clearly know what’s up as they stock collections that are fresh and fun. And did I mention the jewelry? Great pieces from designers like Minx and 2Sisters out of San Francisco.”

“Solid Gold is my favorite store! Full of unique designers and some lines that we all know, not to mention beautiful and simple jewelry. I was excited to see they carried my favorite bath and scents line, Cote Bastide. Super Yummy! If you love dresses this is the place to find them. My favorite and recent buy is a leather handbag by Knoxx. It is truley oringinal haven’t seen anything like it anywhere else. Do stop by and check out eastsides little secret!”
