“If you’re shopping for mother of the bride dresses- you must visit Frank Murphy.  We had visited many other boutiques, big box stores and bridal shops, and Frank Murphy’s staff, selection and service blew us away.  We were greeted with smiles, coffee and water. As we were trying on dresses they offered helpful, but not pushy suggestions.  It was such a great morning and really set a fun and relaxed tone for what can be a stressful experience!  The dresses ranged from $200-$1,000 but there was a little of everything for price ranges. They had a free parking lot out front and an appointment was not required.”

“Frank Murphy has made such a difference in my life.  As a busy professional and mom of two boys, I never had time to go to store after store at the mall, so I did most of my shopping online.  One day I discovered Frank Murphy, and it has completely changed my shopping life!  Alex and Diana have been amazing; they’ve helped me find the perfect dress for multiple events as well as gorgeous day-to-day items.  I love having unique pieces that you won’t find at chain stores.  The trunk shows with individual designers are “don’t miss” events!  It’s fun to be able to see the entire line, order what you want in your size, and then the pieces come in over time.  Frank Murphy has brought a lot of fun and fashion to my life, and as a good friend said recently, it has helped “upgrade my wardrobe.”  I highly recommend that you stop by!”

“I am delighted that the original Frank Murphy has come to White Bear! This area has needed some great classic clothing stores and now we have it. Alex does a wonderful job with the store and all the special orders. And Diana is an absolute pro at women’s clothing. She knows just what works (and will tell you what doesn’t, for which I am grateful). I don’t have to go to Wayzata or Minneapolis anymore to shop for clothes!  Frank Murphy has what I want.”

“We knew if we could go to 1 place in the area to find a dress for me and my daughter for a wedding in the next few weeks, we were in amazing hands at Frank Murphy.  Mission Accomplished.  Thank you!!!  Mandi and I love our finds and a few extra things too!  Always amazing!”

“Holly is a meticulous tailor.   I’ve had numerous shirts, slacks, and jackets tailored by Holly and have not once been disappointed.  She’s helped me with everything from simple to complex alterations and has always charged a very reasonable price.”

“Alex, thanks so much for the fun private shopping experience at Frank Murphy the other night.  It was so great to be able to peruse the store and try on at our leisure after hours! You have a great eye for the classic as well as the trendy fashions.  It truly is a store that allows generations to shop together. I am so glad we were able to enjoy that night at Frank Murphy with you and the girls.  It is a treasure, right in our backyard! I will be in again soon… I can’t stop thinking about one of the dresses I left behind!”

“The new Frank Murphy clothing line is excellent and they make you feel special the minute you walk in the door. Ask about a home visit and they will gently go through your closet and help you sift , sort, toss, and assist in putting together outfits you never thought possible. The process is fun!”

Nancy M

“Having worked for a number of fine stores over the years, I am so pleased with the experience Frank Murphy offers – customer service at its finest in a boutique setting.  With fashions trending to be more casual and our lives getting busier, shopping is different than in years past.  Ladies don’t often get pampered when they shop!  In contrast, Frank Murphy takes such good care of their customers and provides the complete shopping experience.”

Holly B

“Holly Barr is, without question, a tailor with exemplary talents.  I have worked with her for several years on numerous projects and can attest to the high quality of her work and professionalism.  Holly’s work, in my opinion, is nothing less than exceptional.  Holly is a professional who takes time to get to know her clients and thoroughly understand what her clients want to achieve with the alterations and tailoring.  She is skilled in projects that range from simple alterations to a complete remake of classic, timeless clothing.  I continue to be amazed by how creative Holly has always been when challenged with a garment dilemma.  I do not hesitate to strongly recommend Holly Barr, professional tailor…a genuinely caring individual.”

Cindy M

“I can’t say enough about Alex & staff. We had another bridal shop fall through at the last minute & bridesmaids who were here from states away here, so we were on a mission. We bombarded them before opening time & they were so accommodating. The day was a success thanks to our day starting at Frank Murphy. Thank you again so much ladies for putting up with our shenanigans, you were awesome.”

“Frank Murphy Fashions has been wardrobing me since 1989 when I was Miss White Bear Lake in the Miss Minnesota Miss America Organization!

“We had a wonderful time at our private party shopping experience!  My aunt even came up form Hibbing to attend the event – she purchased a black top and matching black fringe skirt.  She has worn the outfit two times and has received several compliments!  The next time she is in town, we will be making a stop at Frank Murphy!  My neighbors also had a great experience, a few individuals knew about your store but a handful of others had not heard of it.  After the party, they all said they would definitely go back to Frank Murphy for a special occasion or a date night outfit.  Thank you again!”
