Lace And Grace bridal boutique opens on Pineville Plaza

PINEVILLE — Dawn Stauber, owner and founder of Lace and Grace Bridal Boutique, opened her boutique at Pineville Plaza on Saturday, July 2, with a grand opening scheduled for a later date.

Stauber, a 30-year-old nurse, said her business will offer wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, Quinceanera dresses, princess dresses, accessories and tuxedo rentals, along with other evening wear pieces.

The business, which will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., was considered by Stauber to be a family business. Stauber said she wanted her daughters to know how to run a business and for the girls in the family to be able to do something together.

“I want my business to thrive for my three daughters,” Stauber said. “They’re involved in everything. They’ve done everything,” Stauber said with a laugh. “It’s been a huge family business, everyone has been involved.”

Stauber, who bought a closing formal dress boutique in Rogers, said she was heading to Atlanta the first week of August to pick out prom dresses, which requires a lot of planning. Stauber said she was accepted by a designer and planned to buy dresses in a variety of price ranges, wanting to provide affordable options.

“I feel like the girls of McDonald County deserve it,” Stauber said. “They’ve never had anything like it.”

Stauber said at the boutique she would also offer personalized jewelry, which she said she was thrilled to be able to do.

“I’m a jewelry artist and had an Etsy store,” Stauber said. “So I’m going to deal with crystals and real pearls. I’ll even do custom orders,” Stauber said, looking at different crystals lined up on the table she was sitting at.

Stauber said opening the business was a “God thing” and she knew it was the right thing for her, despite never having owned a business.

“It’s a God thing the way it happened,” Stauber said, explaining that she was looking for something her daughters could do with her, noting that the right doors were opened to her at the right time. to be able to continue the business.

Stauber said she hopes her business adds joy to McDonald County, noting that she looks forward to serving the community and helping girls and women find their dream dresses.
