Boutique in Scottsbluff caters to women of all ages | Local

Mark A. Carlson

They’re also in charge of promoting the store. Instead of traditional advertising, Pout attracts almost all of its customers through word of mouth or Instagram.

Larson is in charge of pricing, and Burkhart said one of the store’s main goals is to keep prices reasonable. That way, customers will want to shop local.

“I definitely think Scottsbluff needs something like this just because we don’t have a variety, really, and I think there’s a need for women’s clothing besides just Target and Walmart,” Celeste Salazar, a customer shopping at Pout, said.

She found out about the store online and said she was drawn in by the decor and selection of clothing.

Construction on Pout began in the summer but there is still some work to be done. A sign for the store will be added in the near future.

Opening the store required a lot of research, Burkhart said.

MSU junior, 20, opens DBN Boutique for Black women in East Lansing

Mark A. Carlson

EAST LASING — Frustrated by a lack of shops for Black women in East Lansing — and by unreliable online retailers — a Michigan State University student is taking fashion into her own hands.

After months of renovations on a M.A.C. Avenue office space, Onylah Taggart opened the doors last week at DBN Boutique, which offers a mix of styles catering to young Black women.

“We need more clothing stores,” said Taggart, a junior advertising management student. “We shouldn’t have to sit (at home) right there and order things online and cross our fingers to make sure it comes in time.”

Taggart said most students can shop for clothes in downtown East Lansing and around MSU’s campus, but Black women have to leave the city to find a store that suits them. Already, she’s running low on what she calls DBN’s “Kim K” sets — a crop top and leggings.

You know, the kind of rare retail experience that only happens once a year. Or, even better, is only happening in our fair city.

Instagram boutiques are selling clothes from Shein, AliExpress, and Amazon

Mark A. Carlson

A few months ago, I came across a fashion brand on Instagram that purported to be a Los Angeles-based, woman-owned boutique. The tagline on its Instagram bio, “Alteration is innovation,” suggested that the brand championed clothing alteration and sold clothes that were upcycled or crafted out of old and discarded fabrics.

The only red flag was the price of its clothes, which ranged from $60 to $150. These weren’t fast fashion prices, but they seemed suspiciously low for handcrafted garments. A quick reverse image search of the brand’s products confirmed my doubts. The Google results took me to another Instagram boutique as well as to AliExpress, a Chinese marketplace site, where the exact pieces (with the same promotional images) were sold for less than half of the stated price.

I was stunned. The quirky styles and marketing had led me to think that the brand produced and designed its

Fashion forward: Chesapeake boutique offers clothing, accessories, gifts – The Tribune

Mark A. Carlson

Jamareid Boutique, which opened in March in Chesapeake, specializes in women’s fashion in all sizes, as well as children’s clothing.

“It’s been great so far,” Jerrica Ross, who co-owns the store with Lauren Hardin, located at 407 Third Ave., said of business. “People have really shown support for us.”

Ross, a teacher with Fairland schools, said she had already been doing business for two years out of one room when she decided to partner up with Hardin, who works at St. Mary’s Medical Center and is a military veteran.

Hardin said that in addition to clothing, they also sell home décor, food items, accessories and other items.

“More of a gift shop style,” she said.

They said they plan to sell things made by local producers, such as maple syrup and jewelry.

“There are wonderful people here who make things locally,” Hardin said.

Since their opening in March, they have
