A successful locally-based online store opens a new storefront in Sharonville. Read on for all the fashionable details.
LeiMarie Limited recently opened their first free-standing store in downtown Sharonville.
What once started with a passion for fashion and an online store, Chrissy Gedeon owner of LeiMarie Limited, says having a goal to sell quality clothing and accessories for all ages and sizes is what made them a success from the starting block.
“Ranging in sizes small to 3XL, we’ve really got something for everyone,” she adds. “If casual tops and distressed denim is your thing, we’ve got you covered. If you’re a graphic tee and joggers type, we’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for a sundress for a baby or wedding shower, and also need a cute gift, we’ve got all of that! Stop in, and you’ll see why we were voted Online Boutique of the year. We’re so happy to have a home for our online tribe to gather and claim cuteness.”
The store, LeiMarie Limited, is named after Gedeon and her daughter Anisten’s middle names. Anisten’s is Lei and Gedeon’s is Marie. “We strive to incorporate family into everything,” she explains. “Anisten is five, and does live videos on our Facebook and Instagram announcing winners of giveaways and new style pieces hitting the floor, It’s very entertaining and viewers truly look forward to her magic tricks and unpredictable antics each week.”
Gedeon says a lot of time and thought goes into every piece selected for the store. “We’re unique in that the owner hand-chooses each style piece and gift brought into the store,” she adds. “If we wouldn’t wear it, we won’t bring it in store. If we wouldn’t give it as a gift, we won’t bring it in store.”
The new store is located at 11090 Reading Road in Sharonville. Gedeon says she selected downtown Sharonville because of its charm and because the surrounding businesses have been so welcoming. “Our neighbor, Game On Fitness, is such a complimentary clientele,” says Gedeon. “There is a focus to bring life to the downtown area, and we’re honored to join that effort.”
Gedeon says she immediately knew when she walked into the space that is now the boutique. “When touring properties, we literally had the “this is home” feeling when stepping into the space.”
In addition to the new storefront, Gedeon says she also just brought on two Stylist Champions to help with the shopper experience. “We’ll strive to bring unique fashion, increase our fashion choices in plus size, and be a one stop shop for all your special events needs — babies, weddings, engagements, teachers,” says Gedeon.
LeiMarie Limited hosts monthly Featured Vendors, where they bring in new handmade items and other local business as spotlights. They also do a girls night out once a month, with a variety of amazing surprises themes, giveaways, and charity focuses. “New clothing and gift arrivals happen weekly, which makes it new each and every time you stop in!”
