THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT MEIER & FRANK SALES
Extraordinary concessions have been made on many dresses and suits
in trie Fashion Salons at Meier Frank's. No wonder women are talking
about them. It is so unusual, so gratifyingly unusual, to be able to get
just the gown one wants at prices away below what one expected to pay.
Jt really means three dresses for the usual price of two in many casts.
Street and Afternoon Dresses
That Were 55 to $75
That Were $40 to $50
Dresses sold down to one or two of a kind. Dresses in which we do not have all sizes.
Dresses of which we have only one or two colors.- Almost any of the season's fashionable
styles can be confidently expected to be in the assemblage.
There are long and short sleeves. There are dresses of satin, crepe meteor, morocco
crepe and tricotine.
Please let this serve as' your personal invitation to discover for yourself whether there
are not models which you-wish to add to your winter wardrobe.
