Shops We Love, Loving Even More !

Hi !

There is a lot of updating going around !!!!  I changed everything in my house, and getting ready to re-do things at the office.  We are changing everything once again. Staying fresh and updated is so important for the retail and design world.  Two of my favorite shops here in Charlotte are doing that as well.  Sloan, owned by sisters Jill Pleune and Cortney Sloan and as of today Scout and Molly's Megan Orell has created a new shop with a new look and a new name . . Boem.

I was so happy to be asked to help both of my friends with their new spaces just in time for the big shopping and party season !

Sloan  will be moving from East Boulevard to the South Park area with a gorgeous new space.  Recently announced here in the Charlotte Observer  they will still have all the gorgeous things they have always been known for , but will will be amping it up their space's look.  Just across from Crate and Barrel in South Park in a glamorous new venue (formerly Studio 8 Salon).  I know Jill's style having helped with her home, and with Maggie taking the lead on the goods, we pulled a new look together with a clean, sophisticated feel.  Take a look at our plans and stay tuned for the big new opening in the late Fall.

Close one door, open another! As of today, Scout & Molly’s at the Shops at Morrison is now BOEM boutique. After a major brand refresh and remodel, the store reopens today, Friday, October 2nd as BOEM, a unique clothing and lifestyle boutique carrying eclectic boho-inspired styles.
Still owned by Megan, still in the same spot in Morrison, still many of the same brands and style voice.  But a whole new look, a new name, and a bit of a new vibe.  Like the cool new logo and all the trimmings created for Megan and BOEM by the talented graphic design firm Pink Toast Ink.
BOEM has just been totally renovated ~ Lucy & Co. did the store redesign. Expect to see a new minimalistic look with white, tribal & beach influences. The store will still carry the tried and true brands you have come to know and love, just in a different store environment with a brand new name.
After almost seven years of operating under a license agreement, owner Megan Orrell is eager to create an entirely new concept that reflects an evolution of style, including moving into the e-commerce marketplace in early 2016. Nothing like shopping local in your pajama’s with wine in hand #amiright?!
Boem launched on the runway Thursday night 10/1 at Style Night Out, and is now open for biz, so be sure to stop by the refreshed store this weekend to see what’s new! And don’t forget to tell them scoop sent you!

Love the new logo all backed by one of our favorite wall papers . . . Straight from Detroit Paper this is total the look we all wanted . .  classic Boho chic.

The look is a little beachy, a little gypsy and a lot of glamor.  Fun an relaxed.  

Be sure and stop by, it's gorgeous and a whole new feel.

Congrats to you both ! 2016 will no doubt be a fab year !!!
