Hello to everyone in boutique-land! I'm Kayla, the owner of Olive Rose Boutique. I live in Northern Michigan with my husband and 2 children. I'm a recovering work-a-holic trying to live my best life, in the moment, as much as possible! I enjoy warm weather, traveling, bike riding, reading and listening to books, and living life through the lens of my children.
I've had the entrepreneurial bug since a child, and in my spare time you could find me hustling lemonade door-to-door when no one stopped at our stand, making friendship bracelets to sell at a local eclectic store, raking leaves, and taking on a paper route. My Grandpa taught me how to count change back to customers and about computers (think DOS and green screens!). Even after all of my hard work to earn a Teaching Degree and job as a Middle/High School English Teacher, I always had a "side gig" - first photography, then an in-home clothing business. It's no secret that I've always loved clothes, and much of my extra income growing up went towards new clothes. After 2 years of simultaneously teaching, slinging clothes out of my home, and running a photography business, my husband and I decided to move the clothing business into a downtown location and open a beautiful brick + mortar boutique! We opened in November 2018, and we are beyond thrilled to be a part of our local downtown scene.
Clothes have always made me feel more confident and beautiful, especially when I doubt myself. I really believe in the power of a great outfit! It has been my mission to help the gals in our community (and beyond!) feel their absolute best in boutique clothing!
WHAT TO LOVE ABOUT OUR BOUTIQUE:
We offer free personal styling (sizing guidance, styling advice, styled outfits, and ways to hide areas of insecurity). While most of our "personal styling" happens spontaneously while chatting with our boutique visitors, we do offer scheduled appointments as well as online styling services! For more info, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our boutique parties are hostess-led events that serve SO many purposes! Hostesses earn shopping credit based on volume of sales, and it's a great way to earn free boutique clothing! In lieu of a shopping credit, we are happy to donate a portion of party sales to our hostess's fundraiser. Boutique parties are a great way to bring the community together for a fun girl's night (and who doesn't love an excuse for shopping & wine sips?). CLICK HERE for more info!
FRIENDLY & ACCESSIBLE
We take pride in our personalized customer service. We strive to be approachable and easy to chat with, and we feel like we've made SO many friends along the way simply through boutique style! Whether shopping online or in-person, we do our very best to let our boutique pals know how important they are to us!
I hope you enjoyed reading more about our boutique! See you soon, friends!
