Business News and Updates

In the Home Stretch

In addition to the tremendous amount of work needed to get our new space in order for Friday, I also have an ambitious client schedule this week. Bitting off more than I can chew is sorta my default. So, I am pulling today and tomorrow’s post and saving them for next week. They are not up to standard so I’d rather skip two days then send out crummy content.

Sizes 2 - 20

Studio Count Down and Extended Sizes!

I’m THRILLED to announce that starting next week; we will offer a small selection of merchandise from sizes 16 -20. When I was initially writing the plan for our retail store, I always wanted to provide as broad an array of sizing as possible. We are still such a small business, with very limited access to inventory, and have to meet a certain minimum, but I took a risk and placed a few orders, because, frankly, I don’t want anyone to feel not represented, whether at the opening or when they visit the site.

Coming Fall 2017

Ladies, today, is the day.

I am thrilled to announce that in September of 2017 we will open the doors to our very first women’s clothing store. This flagship boutique will be approximately 1400 square feet and will cater to our core clients and blog readers. The merchandise mix will be a reflection of the over ten years of data we have on the needs of busy, professional women with a touch of my personal style perspective thrown in for good measure.

Having a store has been my dream since I was a teenager and was reinforced during and after college when I was the GM and buyer for Suzanne Roberts, a fabulous boutique that used to be at 11th and Walnut Street in Philadelphia. Inspired by my time there, I started Kristel Closets, Inc. because I wanted to do something but didn’t have the capital or experience to open my own space.

We have been working for months gathering information, researching, and planning the transition both for the business and my family. I haven’t told many people, but the reaction from the people I have told has been nothing but overwhelmingly excited and positive. All of the support we have already received has carried me for the past few months and made this process more fun than stressful.

I know there will be many questions, so to keep this organized, I’m answering as many as I can think of below. If you have more, please include them in the comments below.
