[slideshow]An annual favorite, Caroll is the place where you will find all the latest trends in both color, style and fabrics that are also practical to wear. You will look chic without breaking the bank to do so and feel fabulous when you walk out of the store with staple garments and upbeat accessories to go along with them.

The Gal Pals usually hit the jackpot in January at the Saint Germain location when the soldes are at their best, however, this year that location (it’s a chain) was a complete and utter bust! There was not one thing for any of us to try-on, never mind purchase. I was a bit embarrassed to have taken newest Gal Pal Andrea into the store, but was quickly redeemed when we headed over to the Caroll in the 1e on rue Rivoli. We hit the motherload! Scarves, belts, sweaters, pants and dresses were perfect matches for each of the Gals. We exited with full arms of bulging shopping bags. Whew! The icing on the cake was an adorable sales girl with an amazing smile that left us happy to have spent our money in that location (pictured here). I wish we had remembered her name, but rest assured on the next trip we will back to that location and will get it to share with all of you.
