Last November, a new concept of boutique shopping was launched in Lake Saint Louis, where eight unique boutiques have set up shop—under one roof.
Boutique It! Collective opened its doors on November 24, 2017 in The Meadows at Lake Saint Louis Shopping Center. Located at 20 Meadows Circle Drive in Suite 214, the shop is next door to Bath & Body Works.
Boutique It! Collective consists of eight locally-owned boutiques run by female entrepreneurs from in and around the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. Currently Boutique It! Collective houses: Marie Angelique, Addi & Ains, The Silver Hanger, A Taste of Luxurie, Nette’s Closet, A Classy Closet, Six + Cypress, and The Luxury Body Bar.
“The concept has been really well received. The community loves being able to shop at several different boutiques under one roof,” said Naomi Fitzpatrick, owner of Marie Angelique.
Combining the different boutiques into one storefront offers the women business owners a chance to test a product in a new location, see if an online product can succeed in a store front, or simply get more business exposure. Boutique It! Collective offers women the opportunity to sign a lease for as short as 90 days.
“Business collaborating in this form is not new but I believe that participating in a collective and sharing the cost of overhead and other expenses will become a way for new businesses to get their product to market in a more affordable way,” said Fitzpatrick. “Our boutiques have a passion for helping women grow their business.”
Boutique It! Collective also provides a new way to boutique shop.
“We’ve got so many great boutiques, but they are all spread out,” said Fitzpatrick, who saw a need for a shop like this in the St. Louis area. “I hope it’s going to change the way people shop.”
And while Boutique It! Collective houses eight boutiques, Fitzpatrick said it really feels like one boutique for shoppers.
“It is run seamlessly under one roof,” said Fitzpatrick.
And the shop is operated by each of the boutique owners.
“Whenever you shop with us you will be greeted by one of the participating boutique owners,” said Fitzpatrick
Boutique It! Collective offers a variety of fashion styles for women of all ages and sizes. From beautiful bras and undergarments at Marie Angelique to young contemporary fashions at Addi & Ains to sophisticated fashions at The Silver Hanger to the perfect jewelry and accessories at Nette’s Closet, the shop offers a multitude of options for the everyday woman.
“You will find merchandise to take you from day to night, work to play, or just something cozy and comfy. Whatever your occasion or style, you are sure to find something at Boutique It! Collective,” said Fitzpatrick.
