Loved this place. I’m telling everyone and the selection was great. This was the 5th place we visited and my daughter said yes to her senior prom dress. I’m glad the staff helps with the dresses. We went to another dress store where the dresses were not in bags. They were dirty and if I’m buying a new dress I do not want one that wasn’t taken care of before it was purchased.

Found this store through a Google search. Spent this afternoon there with my daughter and had a great time. So many beautiful dresses to pick from and the staff was attentive and helpful even while the boutique was very busy. My daughter found her dress and got to ring the bell! We traveled an hour from Wake Forest, NC and look forward to going back for her senior prom. 😊💃

Came out with a gorgeous prom dress! Wasn't planning to really buy a dress that same day but I can truly say I found the dress! Love the "Say yes to the (prom) dress" celebration they do once you have decided & love how they make sure no one in your school has your dress! Super nice staff & I really felt welcomed the moment I stepped in!! Highly recommend !!!

My first time to visit this location, and it was great! Best Merle Norman I have been to in North Carolina! They had even closed 10 minutes prior, but still opened their doors to serve me! They had exactly what I needed in stock, the owners extremely helpful and made me feel at home so far away from Indiana! I will be sure to make a point to make this my go to Merle Norman location! Thank you all!

We came in on a Saturday. I didn’t expect my daughter to find THE prom dress. The experience was great. Wanda, the owner, is amazing!!!!! Be prepared to wait but it was WORTH it.

Alysha was awesome. After two days of looking for a prom dress with my teenager we came to the Dress Boutique. The pricing, customer service, and environment were fantastic. We start here first next year!! 😁

I had such a wonderful shopping experience here! Their customer service was great and they helped me every step of the way-from the dress to the shoes and accessories to match. Margaret was patient, sweet, and had a lot of great tips. I also got some amazing deals! Highly recommend them if you’re looking for a great place to shop for unique clothing and personal shopping experience!

I love this place! I have been shopping for my prom dress here for 3 years, and they have the best customer service and the prettiest dresses! Everyone always makes me feel beautiful and satisfied with my purchase. I have been to many prom dress places and nothing compares the the family like feeling I get from Merle Norman. This year Alysha helped me find my senior year dress and she was honestly so amazing to work with and helped me pick the most gorgeous dress. She made me feel beautiful and confident in my choice. I love her! Also, last year Margaret picked out my dress, and I was skeptical at first but I ended up picking it and it is one of the prettiest and most unique dresses ever. I will forever love both of these dresses. Whoever you have will make you feel at home and will cater to your wants and needs for prom!! I truly recommend, thank you guys!! ❤️ -Grey

I came here for my Freshman prom. I am now shopping for my Junior year dress. I tried on 4 dresses. 3 light blues and 1 black. It shows more than I like. I got out of my comfort zone and got the black dress. I love it!!! Thank you guys. I will be back for my Senior year in 2021! You guys are incredible! ❤️

We came in for my sister’s senior prom dress and had the BEST experience! She’s indecisive, so she took her time, but our consultant, Hannah, was so patient and helped my sister throughout our entire visit. They had a beautiful selection of dresses and the prices were good for such beautiful dresses!

This store is THE best place to get your prom dress! The owners and staff are top of the line and treats everyone with respect. From the time you walk into the door and served cold beverages to the helpful staff, and have the most beautiful dresses, no where even compares to this gem of a boutique!

Wanda is wonderful. She is very helpful and gave us a lot of choices. I came in with nothing in mind, just to look at the dresses. But Wanda was so accommodating and helped me to leave with a dress feeling confident! I definitely recommend The Dress Boutique at Merle Norman Burlington for prom season!

This is one of the best prom dress places I’ve been too! Wanda is so sweet, she is really comforting and reassuring. My favorite part was getting to say yes to my dress and ringing the bell, I’ll definitely be back next year for my next prom!

Wanda was great. The whole experience was amazing. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for prom dresses. They were busy but still made time for everyone. They have a wide variety of dresses. It was such a special moment ringing the bell and saying “yes to the dress.” Thank you so much Mrs. Wanda!

Are you the mom of a high school girl who needs the perfect dress for that upcoming Prom? Proceed immediately to the Dress Boutique at Merle Norman in Burlington.“Burlington?”, you say. “Really?”YES! We were so pleasantly surprised. Thank goodness my dear friend here in Greensboro recommended this boutique. Take the short drive and even caffeinate at the nearby Starbucks on your way in to shop for this blessed occasion.First and foremost, there are a ton of dresses in all sizes, colors, materials, cuts and degrees of sparkle and shine. They are thoughtfully organized by price range.Second, the store assigns a shopping assistant to the buyer to help select, unzip, fit, fluff and even accessorize each dress. > I’m betting I’m not the only mom of a high school girl who was equal parts excitement and dread regarding this sacred outing. I actually got to sit back and enjoy watching my daughter try on formalwear while I sipped on a cold beverage and chatted with other moms from around the state. Praise!Third - and pay attention to this - they record which dress is going to which school dance - so you get the courtesy of a heads up before choosing a dress that someone else has already purchased for that same dance. What high school girl wants to waltz in like a copycat at the big event?Finally, this store celebrates with cheering, clapping and ringing bells for your daughter (literally) when she finally decides and officially “says yes to the dress”!

Oh my how I LOVE unexpected blessings!!! My daughter had an amazing experience. Her sister has a brain injury and decided 48 hours ago to go to prom. Her older sister volunteered to take her. She walked into the shop and Wanda listened to her every need. Within one hour she had the perfect dress ready to roll for TONIGHT! Every person my daughter encountered was so kind and helpful! Spread the word and help promote these KIND people. We will definitely be returning!!!!

As mother of the groom looking for a dress I was very stressed. I was behind on getting a dress, I had just moved and I didn't know where to begin. I had been to many stores looking for a dress with no luck or much help. I knew about the Dress Boutique from my daughters prom days but didn't know they carried mother dresses. I called and made an appointment and decided to go ahead and drive 30 minutes to see the dresses the day before the appointment. While I was there I was told I could be helped if I didn't mind waiting. I didn't mind waiting to try on dresses, the day before my actual appointment, and needed the help. Wanda, the owner, helped me. She didn't just help me, she "CARED" for me. I had already watched her help numerous girls with their mom's pick out prom dresses and knew I could trust her judgement. Her knowledge and 40+ years of experience of dresses was just what I needed but her thoughtfulness went way beyond just getting a dress. By the time I narrowed down my choice to one dress I felt confident I was buying the best dress for me to wear for my son's wedding. It was such a pleasant experience! I'm so glad I said "YES" to The Dress Boutique" and there I was helped to say "YES" to the dress! Thank you, Wanda!

I have been looking for a Mother of the Brides Dress for a few weeks. No luck what so ever until today when My daughter and I entered the Dress Boutique at Merle Norman,Burlington, NC in Alamance Crossing. Where we were greeted with open arms even though we entered the boutique thirty minutes before they were due to close. Anna assisted me in and out of multiple dresses until I decided on the right one for me. Anna and her co-worker were extremely helpful. I sincerely appreciated their help with everything, even down to purchasing my shoes and jewelry for our daughters wedding in September. Thank you both so very much for the care you provided me…..

STOP The Presses! LOOK NO FURTHER! This is by far the BEST Boutique to purchase your formal wear. Reasonable pricing too! Beautiful gowns, awesome jewelry & shoes to compliment your look! However, what is PARAMOUNT is the staff's southern hospitality and professionalism to assist in selecting what is perfect & makes you feel great for YOU! Now get this, after all that, are you aware of the song Ring My Bell, Ring My Bell! Well, after you are a SATISFIED client, we all engaged in ringing the bell because we are about to be the Bell of the Ball, the Wedding Hall, the PROM or wherever your style is taking you, you will walk in and all the men, women & children will pause! This was a SUPERB shopping experience and I Shall Return. Visit to get this energy, because that is what they offer an ENERGETIC shopping awesome time! Thank you for your benevolence and diligence in working with me! You all are AWEmazing! Did I mention, I traveled from the DMV to purchase here!!!!

OMG! Customer focused is an understatement for this shop. Mrs. Wanda runs a top notch boutique. She loves what she does. It reflects in the quality and product variety and on the smiles of the customers. Shop here for your next formal occasion. You will not be disappointed.

I am planning to elope, so I had less than a week to get a dress. I was shy about spending lots of money and wasn't thinking of going to a boutique of any sort.I am thankful beyond words I went in. Not only did they have a variety of dresses in my size, their staff was incredibly knowledgeable and treated everyone like they were the only customer. The whole experience was priceless.When I found my special dress, the owners included the whole store in the celebration. I'm so grateful and I will be coming back to them whenever I have a special occasion!

We had a great experience. Grace and the other assistants went out of their way to find my daughter the perfect dress. We made an appointment on a Friday. The crowd wasn’t too bad but I can see it could get busy closer to prom or wedding season. Highly recommend this shop!

Love this shop! There were so many beautiful dresses it was hard to narrow it down. The young lady helping us (Ansley) was fabulous and made several great suggestions. We were able to the dress, shoes and jewelry all at one time. I will not go anywhere else this is my new go to for formal wear.
