A Walk Down Memory Lane with Flourish Boutique

This week marks the end of an era...Saturday will be our LAST day at our current location, before we move our store to our new home at Centennial Place. We are calling this week "Memory Lane Week" here at Flourish, to celebrate and remember all the special moments we have had at our current space. What a very special place we have been blessed to have...and all of YOU have been a big part of these memories. We hope you will join us in celebrating the past five years and honoring the historic house we have cherished!

Here are some of our favorite memories:

Possibly one of our favorite fashion shows...Our Sex and the City themed Fashion show in Summer 2010! We think we nailed Carrie's iconic look with our model, Zarah!

And here are some shots of the store at that time! Wow, it has changed! Can you spot the differences? Some of them include new different colored paint on the walls, relocation of the cash register, and opening the hallway to the upstairs! Of course, everything ALWAYS has the trademark Flourish charm: girly, pink, and sparkly :)

 In the Fall of 2010, we were blessed with BEAUTIFUL weather for our Fall Fashion Show and Open House!

In June 2011 Flourish celebrated it's 3rd birthday! Customers enjoyed sips and snacks,  mannequin models (models in the windows), and a live performance by The Bergamot

And of course we can't forget to mention all of the wonderful Christmases we've had at the old store! From our famous "30 under 30" gift section to our gorgeous decorations, there's no denying that Christmas at Flourish is extra special!

The last fashion show to ever be held at the old house was our 5th Birthday Party in June 2013! Our largest fashion show to date, our 5th Birthday Party was held on the lawn in front of the house. Gorgeous decorations, delectable treats, and a seriously amazing fashion show made it a night to remember!
