So, a blonde and brunette walk into a bar they sit down, order a Stoli martini, dirty (obviously) and a Moscow Mule (best in the city). The discussion of their love of shoes and all things aesthetically pleasing is what brought Melissa (the blonde) and Jana (the brunette) together in the first place. What else were they to talk about when their boys discussed the latest baseball scores? “Did you see the FW shows? The mules!”, “Right?! And the colorways!” One thing led to another and they realized they couldn’t find any of these amazing shoes in Saskatoon, their hometown. “What if we opened our own store?” They conceptualized the lounge and next thing you know, circa 2009, there it is. The place with enough mirrors to take the perfect shoefie right in the middle of Canada, Swank Shoe Lounge.
The prairie shoe and accessory destination offers service with a smile and an environment (and shoes) that empower women. Swank continues to offer brands from Australia to Spain to America. Really, where else are you going to find that chunky heeled Solsana sandal in Saskatchewan?
From the Monday sneaker to the Friday strappy sandal to the birthday watch, the lounge offers all of your basic (and not-so-basic) needs for the not-so- bae-sic girls.
Now, the blonde and brunette are the #girlbosses of two locations; the first lounge established in Saskatoon and the second in Regina.
