A new clothing store is having a “soft opening” on Tuesday https://soutiens.org/a-new-clothing-store-is-having-a-soft-opening-on-tuesday/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 15:34:00 +0000 https://soutiens.org/a-new-clothing-store-is-having-a-soft-opening-on-tuesday/ Sept. 20 – WILLIAMSBURG – Malari Hoskins, owner of Ever Aston, may have graduated from the University of the Cumberlands just a year ago, but she’s determined to make her clothing boutique a success. “I graduated from college last year and opened my first location in September 2021.

Sept. 20 – WILLIAMSBURG – Malari Hoskins, owner of Ever Aston, may have graduated from the University of the Cumberlands just a year ago, but she’s determined to make her clothing boutique a success.

“I graduated from college last year and opened my first location in September 2021. So now I’ve moved to a bigger location in London and we’re opening our second location in Williamsburg,” said Hoskins, graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in communications and marketing and elementary education. “When I was approached about the building in Williamsburg, I was really excited.”

Ever Aston will offer clothing from XS to 2X. Hoskins said, “It’s a little tricky because some brands don’t really go over a 2X, but when I can I order any size.”

But if you’re above a 2x, don’t be discouraged. The shop may still have something to buy, from cute headbands or other accessories to planners.

The London site is known for its custom Game Day gear. Hoskins will also ship orders and shared that previously she filled an order for Alabama and even California.

“We actually just finished creating custom shirts for the Cumberlands Cheer and Dance Team,” Hoskins added. “We kind of have a little bit of everything for everyone. We make cute little dog toys and Lulu Lemon bags, and all kinds of stuff. We’re excited about the Williamsburg location.”

Hoskins is delighted to open a second store, adding that Williamsburg and London will give customers the flexibility to choose where they want to shop. She also shared that she’s heard positive feedback from the Williamsburg community about having another option for women’s clothing.

“To me, it’s bittersweet,” Hoskins said when asked what it meant to her to be able to open a location in Williamsburg so close to the University of the Cumberlands on Main Street. “I went to university there for all four years. I loved the Cumberlands. I graduated in May 2021. It’s a bit like coming home even though I live in London.”

Hoskins believes the new Main Street store will be a great place for college-age girls, and even adult professionals, to shop. She’s already thinking about the future, like if there’s a game day or a college-themed event for the ladies. She would also like to bring men’s clothing to her house eventually. With its location already established in London, customers can even shop online to see what’s available.

She hopes her Williamsburg location will become what the London location has become for the community.

“It will just be a place for them (customers) to hang out and be able to hang out and shop,” Hoskins said. “That’s kind of what happened with our London store. It’s a meeting place. People come to socialize and it’s an experience.”

The store is located right next to the Williamsburg Game Cafe and not too far from the Brick Oven. Hoskins hopes this will help his new location succeed.

And while there won’t be a ribbon cutting this Tuesday, Hoskins still plans to have a grand opening on Oct. 1 during UC’s homecoming week.

Ever Aston in Williamsburg is located at 217 Main Street in Williamsburg and will open at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning for its soft opening.

Emily Rodrigue and Marlo Rodrigue have loved fashion since they were young.

“What made me love fashion more was helping other people choose outfits they love and feel confident in,” Marlo said.

Starting a boutique together was something the two cousins ​​and friends talked about, but they never imagined it would happen so soon.

On July 25, 2020, Emily and Marlo opened Marem Boutique as an online store. Just two years later, on September 16, 2022, Emily and Marlo opened a storefront at 4250 Burbank, Dr.






Marlo and Emily Rodrigue cut the ribbon at the Marem storefront window opening Sept. 16, 2022, at 4250 Burbank Dr. in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.




“Even after opening the online store, we never saw a storefront in the near future,” Marlo said. “It became something that tugged at our heart strings, and we knew if it was meant to be, it would happen.”

The showcase opening day was a success. Marem Boutique has hosted many different pop-ups in its store – from cookies to permanent jewelry to Bubbly. From the buyer’s point of view, everything went smoothly. Shopping in Marem gives you all the feeling of being with your girl gang. The store gives you a place to feel confident trying on clothes.







Shop Marem

Emily and Marlo Rodrigue help one of their first customers at the Marem Boutique store opening on September 16, 2022 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.




The name Marem comes from the two women’s names combined into one – “Mar” from Marlo and “Em” from Emily. In their late teens and early twenties, starting a business was hard work for Marlo and Emily, but their passion and dedication kept them going.

Emily described the first three months as an entrepreneur as a stressful time. She said today they look back and laugh because everything they were trying to figure out is now second nature to them. Emily is completing her final year as a marketing major at LSU. Marlo graduated from LSU with a degree in marketing in August 2022.

“There’s no blueprint for how to do things, but there are so many resources that we used to help us through the tough times,” Marlo said.

Using social media and hosting events are great ways for new businesses to gain exposure. Marlo and Emily knew this would work especially well in a place like Baton Rouge, where there are a lot of college students.

Marem Boutique has participated in pop-up events all over the city since the opening of the online store. While Marlo and Emily enjoyed setting up temporary retail spaces, Marlo said it was a lot of work. The women are delighted to have their own permanent shop window.

Being able to meet customers and see the clothes come to life is a feeling like no other, Emily said.

The clothes Marem sells are what many college girls want their wardrobe to look like – from everything you might need for game day to all the different styles of colorful dresses. The store sells a diverse range of products, striving to provide a style for every buyer. The store has a shoe for every occasion and jewelry that ranges from subtle pieces to statement pieces.







Shop Marem

Marlo and Emily Rodrigue pose for a photo in their new Marem Boutique storefront on September 16, 2022 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.




Marlo and Emily love buying trips to markets and trade shows to stock their shop. Marlo said they divide and conquer. They each pick a side of the store, choose what they like, then walk through each room together. One of the main factors they look at when choosing what to buy is whether it fits their price and their customer base, Marlo said.

“There are definitely times when you like one article and another don’t,” Marlo said. “We usually compromise.”

Like the choice of clothes, responsibility for the Marem social network, @shopmarem, is assumed by the two Marem women.

“We like to post four to five photos a day to show off as many products as possible,” Marlo said.

Marlo is responsible for posting photos, while Emily is responsible for creating and posting social media posts. They both take and edit photos of outfits, depending on who has time in their schedule.

Marlo and Emily are grateful for the support they have received from family, friends and clients. Both are excited to continue making their mark in Baton Rouge, a community they know and love.

“From restaurants to sorority houses, we love them all,” Emily said. “They’re one of the reasons we’re opening the showcase now.”

Super, Neon’s boutique distribution label, has acquired the US rights to Alice Diop’s “Saint Omer” after winning the Grand Jury’s Silver Lion award in Venice as well as the Luigi De Laurentiis Lion of the Future award. .

“Saint Omer” was recently shortlisted for France’s Oscar submission and will premiere at the New York Film Festival and play at the BFI London Festival. Neon is planning a theatrical release.

More Variety

“Saint Omer” is Diop’s first fiction feature, which she co-wrote with Amrita David and Marie NDiaye, and which stars Kayije Kagame, Guslagie Malanda, Valérie Dréville and Aurélia Petit. Toufik Ayadi and Christophe Barral of Srab Films produced alongside Arte France Cinéma and Pictanovo Hauts-de-France.

Inspired by a true story, “Saint Omer” revolves around Rama, a young novelist who attends the trial of a woman accused of having killed her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her on a beach. As the trial continues, the testimonies of the defendants and witnesses will shake Rama’s convictions.

Diop made her directorial debut with the documentary “Nous” (Us), which won the Berlin Film Festival’s Rencontres award.

Mason Speta brokered the deal on Super’s behalf with CAA Media Finance and Wild Bunch International on behalf of the filmmakers.

‘Super’ directors Darcy Heusel and Dan O’Meara were behind the Oscar-nominated docu ‘Honeyland’, the first non-fiction film to land nominations for Best Documentary and Best International Feature the same year, and were also behind Victor Kossakovsky “Gunda,” which was shortlisted for a feature-length documentary. Super earned his first Oscar nomination for “Quo Vadis, Aida?”, which also won the Independent Spirit Award for an International Feature Film.

After a career in law, Nicci Hicks chose not to give up on her dream.

Pivotal careers from lawyer and business executive to business owner allowed Hicks to act on a childhood love for fashion by opening Pivot, a boutique for women with a curated selection of shoes, handbags hand and accessories in July.

“Every time I’ve come up the corporate ladder here in Columbus, I’ve thought, man, that’s really cool to do,” Hicks said. “So I just decided to have faith and be brave and pursue it through the pandemic.”

BJ Hicks, Nicci Hicks’ husband, said he knew Nicci Hicks wanted to open a boutique and he believed she would be successful in doing so.

“After several conversations, it became very clear that not doing so would be detrimental to him,” said BJ Hicks. “I know she has total passion and when she puts her mind to something she will succeed. So that’s when it became really easy for me to say, well, sure, you have to do it.

BJ Hicks said his wife’s shopping skills and understanding of others was a reason he knew she could rise to the challenge of opening a boutique.

“She’s a good client. She is a professional buyer. She has a keen understanding of people,” BJ Hicks said. “She has a deep understanding of what makes a great store and what makes a great business.”

BJ Hicks said Nicci Hicks’ experience as a lawyer and business executive provided her with the foundation to navigate the legal side of owning a business as well as her people skills.

“She could look at the contract, she could talk with a leasing agent, landlords and banks,” BJ Hicks said. “But she also has the soft skills and EQ to welcome someone in any medium, male, female, age doesn’t matter.”

Crystal Plunkett-Saunders, a friend of Nicci Hicks, said Nicci Hicks’ focus on small, women-owned, minority-owned and sustainable brands educated her on how to be a better consumer.

“I think when you’re shopping in a department store you’re kinda looking at, you know, the color, the material, but I don’t think you’re looking, I don’t think you’re paying that much attention or just me “Said Plunkett-Saunders. “I don’t think I paid as much attention to sustainability or the impact that designers had on the world because it was so limiting. So I appreciate that she put everything in one place.

Pivot offers sustainable and inclusive global brands such as TKEES, Woden and Shoto, according to their website.

“So we offer established and emerging brands from around the world with a focus on inclusive brands,” said Nicci Hicks. “So owned by black, women and minorities as well as sustainable brands.”

Although Pivot is Nicci Hicks’ company name, she said it was representative of her own personal transformation.

“I think when we think of careers, we often think of them in a linear way, but we’re all worth multiple passions and goals,” said Nicci Hicks. “So it just represents bravery. It represents faith, it represents an investment in oneself.

Griffin & Grace owner Jamie Rohlich said she makes her purchasing decisions for the store based on her personal preferences.

“My customers come to my store because they like my style,” she said. “If I don’t wear that, they probably won’t either.”

Most customers who shop at Griffin & Grace are women between the ages of 35 and 60, she said. Keeping that in mind, Rohlich said she knows it’s best not to follow every trend.

“Mom jeans are very popular right now, but they definitely don’t flatter my older clientele,” she said. When Rohlich opened Griffin & Grace in 2011, its merchandise focused on children’s and women’s clothing. Eventually, she added jewelry and candles to the mix. Now, the store’s inventory includes women’s clothing, gifts, and home decor. “I choose gifts and decor based on what I like. If I didn’t pay $70 for this candle, I would never buy it for my store,” Rohlich said.

She describes the store’s gifts as trendy and sometimes fun.

“I love when people stay there forever reading our coasters…and laughing,” she said. “They’re going to give this to their friend, because it’s going to make them laugh.” Rohlich said Griffin & Grace’s social media presence has grown exponentially over time. And although it wasn’t possible to have customers in the store for three months due to the pandemic, 2020 was the store’s best year ever.

Today, Rohlich said she typically spends the first two hours of her day filling orders received overnight based on merchandise posts she posted on the store’s Facebook page. Rohlich said some of her favorite aspects of owning this business are creativity and knowing her clients’ style preferences. “I see a shirt and I say, ‘Liz is going to buy this shirt,'” she said. “Then they order it, and I go, ‘I knew you would order it. “”

A Scottsbluff woman has turned a business she started during the pandemic into a full-time business.

Jennifer Rojas started laundering shirts while her job was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. With five years of experience in making custom shirts, she had gained a lot of success with her products.

“It’s a sublimation print with a kind of 80s look,” she said. “It was popular online and I did really well with my Etsy shop, so I decided to take it to the next level.”






Jennifer Rojas started laundering shirts during the coronavirus pandemic, and she took the hobby from an online service to a brick-and-mortar store in downtown Scottsbluff.




Rojas opened Je-Double N’s Bleachy boutique at 1610 Broadway in August. The Scottsbluff store isn’t his first foray into selling shirts in person. She had previously rented space at another store in Uptown Scottsbluff, but wanted to have her own place.

“I didn’t want it to be just Jenn’s blah blah blah, I wanted it to be something unique and fun,” Rojas said. “I am ready to be an asset to our region.

Most of her shirts are custom made, either by her or by other artists. She can press custom designs from a selection of images available on site. Its shirts feature humorous sayings, holiday themes, school spirit designs and more.

Jennifer Rojas poses next to a selection of shirt designs at her Je-Double N’s Bleachy store in Scottsbluff. Rojas opened his new business…

She also sells other items, including pants and shoes.

“I sell Myra bags, and these are popular with more western, country, girly (customers). I sell a lot of jewelry…earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and then some kind of in-between,” Rojas said.

The boutique offers other services, such as the development of a lounge at the back. Another facet is a loose leaf tea bar, run by a friend.

“Basically, the concept is that they can come in, get a box, and fill it with whatever loose leaf tea they want, making their own blends,” Rojas said.

Rojas’ daughter also offers henna art at the store on Saturdays.

“We really try to make it (the shop) an experience, something fun for everyone,” Rojas said.

Most of her clients are women in their teens to early 40s. She sells a variety of shirts to customers, with some items selling better than others. She said it was just a matter of trial and error to see which items proved the most popular.

Rojas said she enjoys meeting clients from all over. Some people find her on Facebook, others just come in while shopping, and some are still her longtime clientele on Etsy.

“I grew up in Seattle, so my taste in things is totally different from the West Coast to the Midwest,” she said. “I think a lot of the stuff here that sells is Western, Midwestern type stuff, but I try to bring in a bit of that West Coast flair. I know that there are still people who have my sense of humor or who have my style or my tastes. It’s just trial and error too.

Rojas aims to hold a grand opening celebration with live music and refreshments later in September. She said she wanted to provide new services over time, but would continue to work at the store.

“That’s my business,” she said. “She’s kind of my baby, so you gotta start somewhere.”

Charm Boutique & Bar offers its customers a “sip n’ shop” experience | Culture https://soutiens.org/charm-boutique-bar-offers-its-customers-a-sip-n-shop-experience-culture/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 05:00:00 +0000 https://soutiens.org/charm-boutique-bar-offers-its-customers-a-sip-n-shop-experience-culture/ Finding a place to grab a drink isn’t the hardest thing to do in Lincoln with O Street’s great selection of bars, pubs and live music venues.

Finding a place to grab a drink isn’t the hardest thing to do in Lincoln with O Street’s great selection of bars, pubs and live music venues. However, finding a place where you can sip cocktails while shopping for clothes is a little trickier.

Charm Boutique & Bar was created to solve this problem by combining the two activities of consumption and purchase of clothes. Located at 200 S 21st St., the quaint store is housed inside a sturdy brick building in the Telegraph District. The decor is hip and chic with a full bar that runs along the side of the boutique and a hard-to-miss pink couch. Customers can stretch out, enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail, and chat with employees and other customers while browsing the vast landscape of dresses, bathing suits, blouses, and sweatshirts.

Owner Lindsey Tederman said she’s always had a passion for fashion and wanted to help women feel empowered in their clothes and shopping in a comfortable environment. She also noticed that no other shop in the area had a fully stocked bar, and she knew she wanted to create something to fill the void.

“When I was little I loved to play shop and would always be the kid wearing crazy outfits,” Tederman said. “I love dressing people up and helping women feel confident. Also, I wanted to do a store like no other in the area, so I decided to do a boutique with a bar.

Charm Boutique & Bar moved to Lincoln from Gothenburg, NE in 2021, which was in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people still used the Internet to buy clothes rather than going to stores to buy goods. Tederman said her journalism degree and marketing background helped her market her business on the web and attract customers to her in-person shop.

“I do a lot of social media marketing, and although people still do a lot of shopping online – and we also have an online store for those who prefer to stay at home – I think that since my store has a bar and is an experience, it pulls [more] people in my brick and mortar store,” Tederman said.

Taeva Hoppe, sales assistant at Charm Boutique & Bar, also said that while online shopping is popular, stepping into the store and shopping in person is second to none.

“I don’t think our store will ever become a primarily online shopping experience,” Hoppe said. “I think what we have going for us is that we’re a bar, and while you can order our clothes online, you can’t order a Moscow Mule and have it shipped to you. I think that’s where we have a little more of a unique experience.

While the cocktails and wine are tasty, the dress options Charm Boutique & Bar has to offer are equally delicious. They offer clothes for all body types and all ages. The store offers sportswear as well as casual blouses and pants. However, the boutique’s selection of dresses is the main attraction, according to Hoppe.

“My favorite piece of clothing I bought from the store was probably an ivory and black polka dot open back super long dress. It’s absolutely gorgeous,” Hoppe said. “I love all of our Husker stuff too. We have the cutest Husker stuff.

Although Charm Boutique & Bar has a lot to offer right now, it is constantly evolving and growing. Tederman said she is always thinking of new ideas and new ways to improve the store.

“I want to help local entrepreneurs by providing shelves where they can put their merchandise to sell inside my store. I also want to host exclusive parties for birthdays and weddings where people could come in and have the store to themselves,” Tederman said. “I have a billion ideas in my brain, so who knows, tomorrow it might be something new.”

Those who complain about the dearth of fashionable multi-brand boutiques in New York can now visit a new entrant. Outline, an airy boutique in the Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, opens Thursday – run by Opening Ceremony and former Totokaelo women’s buyer Margaret Austin, along with two childhood friends.

If there’s anything Austin has learned in the past year since she and her partners Julia Edelman and Hannah Rieke started the project, it’s that it takes a whole village. “It restored my faith in people,” said Austin, who relied on her community of friends to drive the store.

Located at 365 Atlantic Avenue, Outline serves the needs of a neighborhood teeming with well-paid creative professionals who increasingly work from home and crave a store to hang out on during their lunch breaks or walks with their dog l ‘afternoon. It sits at the intersection of the Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Fort Greene neighborhoods and, as an indoor-outdoor concept, offers ready-to-wear, homewares, jewelry, shoes, and flowers. fresh.

Austin decided to take the plunge in mid-2021 while consulting on freelance retail concepts for another person’s store. A friend told her it was time for her to realize her own concept, and Austin – who had abruptly left the fashion industry in 2020 when Need Supply and Totokaelo closed and made her unemployed – had desire to re-enter the circle of buyers. She quickly dropped out of a Masters of Library Science program, turned to Edelman and Rieke for help, and hired her friends at Goodspace to find a suitable location.

“People were constantly asking me where to do my shopping. Bird [Jen Mankins’ mini empire of shops that closed in early 2021] was a huge loss and there was a Barneys [New York] on Atlantic Avenue. I feel like if I didn’t do it, someone else would. It was the right time,” Austin said.

Austin enlisted Edelman, whom she met at ballet camp in college, to help with the project as head gardener and director of programming. Until recently, Edelman worked as an assistant farm manager at Brooklyn Grange. At Outline, Edelman has teamed up with the Grange on a back patio that serves as a flower garden and outdoor lounge area for the store. She will take care of the back of Outline’s space, offering freshly made personalized bouquets for purchase.

Inside Outline, a new boutique in the Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Rieke, Austin’s college friend, was previously the director of Matt Jackson Studio, focusing on production and set design for a variety of mediums including film, ad campaigns and fashion. She took over as head of visual merchandising and interior design at Outline.

“We have our own ways and it works really well,” Austin said of the trio’s arrangement, which also sees them working as the sole Outline store associates for the foreseeable future.

Outline, with 1,200 square feet of indoor space and a 570 square foot outdoor terrace, hosts a slate of emerging and established luxury rtws, homewares, accessories, and – eventually – apothecary products. clean. There are plans to schedule events and organize poster trunks for emerging talent.

Those who know Austin have asked him to open his own store. With Outline, she finally had complete control over a store’s entire assortment.

“It’s been an interesting process for me to find a way to speak to the neighborhood and bring in more edgy pieces,” Austin said of the buying process. “We try to strike a balance – wearing some of my all-time favorites like Lemaire, Our Legacy, Dries Van Noten, Auralee Tokyo and Engineered Garments.

“For more feminine brands, there’s Runaway Bicycle and Maryam Nassir Zadeh. It is therefore finding a balance between the two things, feminine with a utilitarian masculine perspective which is a constant in my style. It’s less trendy than a store [than my previous work] and more on everyday wear,” Austin said.

Outline also stocks china from Edelman’s mother, Jan Burtz, who supplies all the dinnerware to ABC Kitchen and is the first US outlet for online china sensation Casa Adams. There’s rtw from brands like Connor McKnight, La Reunion and Flore Flore and jewelry from Alterita and Beatriz Palacios.

Outline’s terrace and flower garden.

The store’s undulating wooden fixtures were made in collaboration with Antoine Dumas and Benji Gavron, who have recently become close collaborators with Gabriela Hearst on both her eponymous line and new retail concepts for Chloé.

Outline opens during what has become a renaissance of independent retail in New York City. Following high-profile closures like Opening Ceremony, Bird and Barneys has come a post-COVID-19 wave of new stores. Highlights from last year include Desert Vintage by Salima Boufelfel and Roberto Cowan on the Lower East Side and Tangerine by Amanda Lurie and Gina Esposito in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

With Outline, Austin, Edelman and Rieke now add their voices at this time.

“I am delighted that we are in such good company. I’m just happy to contribute my perspective, and especially in the one square mile radius of Brooklyn where I grew up. I really wanted it to feel like a neighborhood store — sure, I want it to be a destination, but I want it to have a real community behind it,” Austin, a Brooklyn Heights native, said of the ‘space.

“People are tired of shopping online and are excited to go into stores and have that more personal experience. We wanted the space to go along with that and invite an in-person shopping experience. .

While Candace Williams was working with her mother at Teaser’s Boutique in Detroit, she noticed many people walking their dogs along Livernois Avenue in the mornings.

One rainy day led to a business idea, and Barks Fifth Avenue was born.

“It was pouring rain and I was like, ‘This lady is walking her dog – this dog needs a raincoat,’ Williams said. She then went to a trade show with her mother, Paulette Williams, and one vendors were selling dog products “Everything was sort of coming full circle.”

Then the news came that the former tenant of her current space was moving – and it’s right next to her mother’s business.

Now the dogs, whom Candace Williams calls her “bark stars,” can walk in with their humans for a dressing room experience and walk out wearing dresses, hoodies, jerseys, sweaters, tuxedos, capes, shirts, denim, and some designer clothes and accessories, such as Chanel-inspired necklaces or hoodies emblazoned with “Pawlenciaga.”

Candace Williams wants her boutique, located at 19359 Livernois, to be like an experience.

Store owner and resident Candace Williams, 42, works at Barks Fifth, a dog clothing and accessories store on Fashion Avenue in Detroit on Friday, July 22, 2022. Williams' business is located next to her mother's store called Teaser's Boutique.

“I want (customers) to feel like they’re treating their dog the same way they would if they went to their high-end store to shop,” Williams said. “I want their pets to feel like that. And even though they don’t have their pets, I still want them to feel like it’s a high end store for my pet and I want them to feel good.
