Hey! It's Lanae Hale here! ;) In January of 2019 I was exploring ideas for new businesses. My husband and I had been running The Ribbon Retreat for the previous 13 or so years and felt like it was time to add something new. I've always loved shopping, putting cute outfits together, accessorizing, etc. and felt like a women's boutique would be a great fit! So Amber and Ivory Boutique was born.
Many people ask where the name Amber and Ivory came from. Well, the gist of it is that Amber is the only girl in the family, besides myself of course -- and it's a cute name! ;) But what about the Ivory? After running a ribbon business for the last 13 years, colors were on the brain. We wrote down our favorite color names and brainstormed like crazy! Amber and Ivory just seemed to fit and sounded good. What do you think? ;)
To say that it's been a whirlwind would be an understatement! Owning a clothing boutique comes with its own set of challenges and obstacles, as does any business. But we are so grateful that you are here! We are constantly striving to improve our website, our brick and mortar store, our clothing selection, our customer service -- pretty much everything! :)
And just in case you were wondering, The Ribbon Retreat is still around. It's seen its share of changes over the last 13 years and has been an amazing ride. There are some fun hidden gems (especially the YouTube videos and tutorials) over there, so take a peek.
I hope you are having a wonderful day no matter where you are.
