6'2'' Whitney has a long association with our brand. A loyal customer since her teens, she started her career at LTS working at our pop up shops across the US before taking on our shiny new Chicago store.
We caught up with Whitney over coffee (latte, one sweetener) to talk Grand Opening celebrations, tall fashion and iPod tracks.
We are so excited for our Grand Opening Party on Thursday September 17th. Come join us! Anji from KISS103,5FM will be live broadcasting and one lucky customer will win a year's wardrobe!

"The first couple of weeks have been great! It has been so fun to share in the excitement as customers enter the Chicago store for the first time!"
What are the tall women of Chicago loving?
"The supersoft legging jeans in the chestnut/rust color have been very popular. It's a great fitting jean and the color is perfect for fall. The Allegro pants, both boot cut and skinny are a staple for any tall gals closet so those are really flying! Also the Geo Jacquard Tunic Dress, it's a great fit and looks fabulous paired with leggings and flats or boots."
What is your favorite part of your job?
"Having a 37" inseam and size 13 shoe I've never enjoyed shopping. Ever. That is, until I stumbled upon Long Tall Sally. Trying on my first LTS jean and having it hit the ground was a dream, really. Finally finding clothes that fit me has been the best thing ever and I love sharing this experience with my customers."
