devoted wife may have her heart set on a new dress, your deb
daughter may crave a "knockout" Formal Frock, your schoolgirl
daughter yearns for a dainty new House Coat (with zipper front).
As for many other people that you know, times are not as good
as they have been-your gift will be more acceptable if it is one
that they can wear.
...And T hai's Where Marilyn Shines !
OURS IS A SPECIALTY APPAREL STORE, a store devoted solely and
simply to the clothes that well-dressed people wear, a store built
around Onality clothes and Quality standards, and serving repre-
sentative Ann Arbor families.
We do not look on Christmas as a "catchpenny" season. We
believe that, at this time, as all through the year, intelligent people
want merchandise of dependable quality, authenic fashion, certain
usefulness. The fact that they can find it at MARILYN's where the
moderate prices obviously do not include a stiff "cover charge"
for "atmosphere," is perhaps a good reason why your Christmas
lists may very sensibly start and end at MARILYN'S.
