Due to extenuating circumstances, I dont have time to shop around (macys, gap, s and d kids, etc) to get my girls clothes for yuntif and spring.

I want a one stop shop experience, where I can easily find dresses that are long enough, shirts that are elbow length, and skirts...but I also want to not spend a fortune.

Which Jewish store is my best bet?

I vaguely recall a thread where someone mentioned a store similar to clover (which at the boro park location is just teens and ladies) for kids--anyone know the name?

I usually can get great camp tshirts at junees for about $10 each, but I've never shopped there for yuntif. Is that a good idea? The website doesnt have a grea selection, but I can go in store.

Thank you for all the replies! Yes, I think the store I remembered from another thread was designer spot. I really appreciate those who answered (and so fast!) .

I think I'll go to designer spot, and maybe kidchic and junees (prices seem comparable on websites) if I need more stuff.

Lulu back room. And their regular prices, while not cheap, are still very affordable.

What/where is this? I prefer in store, as I likely wont be able to handle shipping things that dont work out back and will end up taking a loss on them

Lulu caters to a chassidish style. So does Childrens Outlet although I do very well there for basics like skirts and robes and it doesn't sound like you're heading to Monsey.
Designer spot is great for younger kids I find there's very little choice for the bigger kids.
Kidichic might not be as cheap but if you're looking for one stop shop it's probably a good choice.

I definitely think what you're looking for is Designer Spot. It's across the street from Clover and for sure under the same ownership/management. It's a good one-stop destination, at the other places mentioned you have to pick through between full price, sale, and hit-or-miss clearance but at Designer Spot it's basically consistent lower-end prices. Sure you can do better on clearance at the other stores but if you're looking for simpler and more direct, the odds of finding exactly what you need on clearance are very slim in my experience.

From my limited experience in looking around Junee jr and kidichic, kidichic was much more affordable across the board in all categories

Hi, everyone, I'm the OP.
Thank you to everyone for their suggestions, just wanted to update with results!

I went to designer spot, kidichic and junees. Posters on this thread were definitely correct in saying that junees price points were higher than I recalled.

I bought shabbos robes at designer spot for under 40 each, as well as one weekday dress that was 25 each. I didnt find the majority of the store to be particularly affordable or discounted- certainly nothing on the scale of clover.

I found great t shirts, skirts, headbands, and nicer weekday outfits at at kidichic, surprisingly affordable (though I am a bit worried about how they will wash and wear-- recommendations welcome!!). The shabbos stuff was more expensive, and mostly white/light colors, which doesnt work for my kids! I was actually pretty amazed that people spend that much on what for my kids would essentially be a disposable outfit! I also went to both locations (coney island and 13th ave) and found that 13th ave was better stocked, though staff was helpful at both (also both were super super busy, but thats what I get for going sunday afternoon!).

I didnt get anything at junees.

For shabbos/yuntif, I walked into a store across from kidichic called "perez" or "peretz", I don't recall. They had shabbos dresses and outfits in the $25 to $40 range that worked out just fine for me. Nothing white or light colors, nothing that was super super stylish, but very pretty practical scuba material dresses, for example. Plus they had shells to match when necessary, which saved me an extra stop.

Thanks for all the help!!

Thanks I'll be checking out Peretz then. I'm not so into scuba material, was there other selection?
