Last Goodbye. We’re open from 11-6 today and tomorrow before we lock the doors. We love you.
A week from tomorrow we lock our doors, but tomorrow we open them: join us from 6-8 for our wake, SUNDAY MARCH 17 (tomorrow). 🖤💀
We had the best turnout for a trunk show ever. Thank you EVERYONE for your support. And thank you @hollybobisuthi for being with us for this. We still have two more weeks, please come see us we love you 🖤
TOMORROW ! @hollybobisuthi at blackmail. With glorious work and boozy punch.
THIS Sunday. Come see the incredible work of @hollybobisuthi and have some boozy punch.
While we’re trying to clear the store, we still have some fresh and amazing things arriving from our rockstar consigner @design_aust . Her work is NOT marked down but one of a kind and available. Come check it out ! (Everything seen here are 2 necklaces, layered)
Ya don’t say ! All clothing is now 50% off (EXCEPT for select consignment pieces which are 30%). Come see us while ya still can 🖤
come one come all !! firstly, we'd like to thank everyone for the incredible support you've shown since we announced our imminent departure from this realm. we also want to let you know that THIS SUNDAY march 10th we are hosting our final trunkshow -- a swan song trunkshow -- with our beloved @hollybobisuthi all day long from 11 - 6. please come by and say hi and bye and check out holly's incredible array of beautiful work.
Come on dowwwwwwn. Virtually the whole store is 30% off, if not more. Kerosene is 20% off. Books 20% off but 40% off 3 or more. Some clothes are 50%. And *some* consignment jewelry is not marked down, but still available for you to purchase beautiful one of a kind pieces.
We’re working on marking those markdowns. Officially starts tomorrow, but if you come by today you may be surprised by what you find. Whole store is marked down 20 - 50 % WITH EXCEPTION of consignment jewelry.
Jessica (manager / buyer) here. I love this photo: the Blackmail family for the past year. We want to thank you guys for the outpouring of support we received over our first weekend since we announced our impending closure, it was incredibly touching. It showed me something — Blackmail is not just a shop, not just a capitalistic exercise, but a mode of expression for not just those of us who work here but for anyone who walked through our doors. We represented an exception to a rule of an ever-changing Austin, until we didn’t. Thank you for being a part of our family too. We still have 4 weeks to go — please come visit 🖤 And continue to support small local businesses that hire and pay the weirdos 🤘🏻💀
After 21 years in business -- 18 of them on S Congress Ave -- Blackmail Boutique will finish its final lease and close on March 24 2019 (as if it were graduating from high school at 18, or college at 21 !) The owners -- Gail Chovan and her husband/partner Evan Voyles -- wish to thank their loyal employees, customers, friends, and neighbors for participating in this incredibly sustained and beautiful project. It is very difficult -- and lucky -- to survive and thrive for over two decades in retail; in any market at any time. We have fulfilled our mission, and are leaving to devote more time to other pursuits, says Gail Chovan, who is now a full-time professor at The University of Texas At Austin in the division of Textiles & Apparel. We invite all who have loved the store to come in over the next 5 weeks and make your final purchases, including many of the props and fixtures from our long theatrical run! she added. Opened in 1997, Chovan (partnered with Voyles) opened Blackmail on South Lamar amid a cluster of vintage clothing stores. Over the years, the location and thematic changes that followed, Blackmail became known for innovative fashion shows featuring Chovan's often-daring designs, award winning window displays, and eclectic offerings.
