From running a business out of a spare bedroom to a fashion empire with stores in Wilmington and a second store now open in Hyde Park, a local lady is out to give shoppers trendy options without breaking the bank. Read on to learn more.
Since its opening in May 2014, Everyday Chic Boutique has seen nothing but growth.
Karli Harris, the boss lady behind the business, first launched the business from a spare room in her house.
After she graduated from college, Harris was working for Wright-Patt Credit Union in Dayton. While at work, she found that she wanted to feel trendy in her clothing option, but didn’t want to break the bank either.
That’s when she came up with the idea for Everyday Chic Boutique, and now she’s opened a second location in Hyde Park Square at 2643 Erie Avenue.
Harris says that she chose a spot in Hyde Park because she wanted to open another location of Everyday Chic Boutique closer to the city, but while still maintaining the store’s “small town feel.”
“I avoided strips or malls when pursuing a new area, so when I found the Square I instantly fell in love with its charm and history, and I knew this was the right spot for Everyday Chic Boutique,” she says.
The new location opened its doors on November 17, with hours 7 days a week, Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm.
Although they’re already open, Harris says she’s planning on a big celebration with a Grand Opening event in January.
At Everyday Chic Boutique, you’ll find brands like Free People, Bed|Stu, and 7 For All Mankind among a wide selection of privately-labeled pieces.
“We have apparel, denim, shoes, accessories, and gifts,” says Harris. “We also make it a priority to purchase lines available that focus on giving back to the community and environment such as Love Your Melon, Cecelia Jewelry, and Noah & Co Candles.”
Harris says that what makes Everyday Chic Boutique different from other boutiques is that it aims to change the way women shop while also offering a personalized experience that she says she wasn’t getting at big box stores.
“Fast forward 6 years and we’ve expanded our original store into a 2,500-square-foot location and are opening new storefronts,” she says.
Harris personally selects every piece that hits the floor to ensure that customers are given a unique and high-quality selection to choose from when they shop at Everyday Chic Boutique.
“Our inventory is constantly changing to guarantee you will always find new, exciting items,” she adds. “It is our mission at Everyday Chic Boutique to provide every guest with a tailored, empowering customer experience. We believe shopping should be easy, and that the process should be painless. We strive to create a friendly and fun experience for everyone that steps in the door.”
Price points for items at Everyday Chic Boutique range from $25 to $150 depending on the brand and season. The private labeled options are the bulk of the inventory, according to Harris, and range from $25 to $75.
The store carries a wide selection of inventory, so there’s something for everyone.
At Everyday Chic Boutique, the focus is on quality, fashionable options at an affordable price point.
“We want you to be able to ‘guilt-free’ purchase an entire outfit when visiting our boutiques, an outfit that will last you multiple seasons,” adds Harris.
