Lingerie Fine Française
Genuine French Lingerie Fine without Breaking the Bank
Mes Chères Mesdames,
After seven enjoyable years, I shall be shuttering Allande de San Francisco at the end of June 2019 to focus on renovating a house in France. I’ve been proud to represent the hardworking, ethical mother company in France and to introduce these gorgeous, artisanal products to the Bay Area. It has been wonderful to meet so many delightful ladies along the way.
Before I close the business, though, I shall be offering one last collection - the lighthearted Collection Printemps-Eté 2019, with no-obligation open houses on Friday, May 25 and Saturday 25. This will be the last opportunity to buy, and my final orders will be sent to France on Sunday, May 26. As ever, appointments are recommended but not necessary. Free free to just pop by for a cup of tea or a glass of sparkling to just say ‘Au Revoir’.

Allande lingerie fine is crafted in the family-run ateliers of la Société Allande, one of the last companies still producing lingerie in France. This gorgeous, comfortable, long-wearing lingerie is not available in stores, but is sold exclusively through home sales, a model that allows you to enjoy genuine French, artisanal lingerie fine every day without breaking the bank.
Please join us: Allande de San Francisco, luxury skincare company Futurcosmetic and natural-fabrics comfy clothing company OR Sight will be holding a Final Soirée Tuesday, May 21 from 4pm to 7.30pm, featuring fantastic pricing, free gifts, tasty apéro nibbles and sparkling wine.

A word about pricing
The founding ethos of Allande was to make high-quality lingerie fine available to everyone at a reasonable price. Hence the home-sales model to avoid the overhead of stores. Here in the Bay Area, I keep my pricing as close as possible to that in France, just adding shipping and currency conversion at cost. This represents exceptional value for quality and impeccable French styling.
Allande de San Francisco supports San Francisco's Blossom Foundation, which helps bring dignity to homeless women by providing free menstrual products. Sample lingerie stock that has not sold is donated to the Foundation. Homeless or needy women can choose pieces to help them feel more confident and feminine for job interviews or just daily life.
