Good Things in Small Packages
When Adrienne Velardi opened her clothing boutique seven and a half years ago, she was motivated by the desire to bring some of her favorite design houses within easy reach of the women in her favorite town, and that’s when Magnolia’s, on Charles Coleman Boulevard, became a reality. Named for her father’s favorite tree (branches will bend but never break), Magnolia’s stocks items that Adrienne loves from such American names as CMC Click, Habitat and Moon Light and the French Canadian brands of Tribal and Flax.
As I stood in the middle of Adrienne’s little, well appointed shop, I overheard one customer gush about how much she and her friend “love this store!” It’s so easy to see why. You simply can’t find the things that Magnolia’s carries in a department store. The clothing is made of natural fabrics…wool, cotton, linen, and silk, yet ninety five percent of everything sold is easy care…actually washable. Colors range from delicious jewel tones to beautifully subtle heathers, and clothing for every occasion is sold here, from casual to formal. The fit and drape are exceptional. Handmade sweaters showcased here can only be described as yummy. Thick wools are used on many cardigan styles, and big bold wooden buttons add the perfect closures…just fabulous…all at reasonable prices, and all interesting, unusual and stylish. You will also find beautiful accessories, from scarves, purses and shawls to jewelry of natural stones, hand-cast silver, interesting metals and glass.
Adrienne prides herself on the personalized service and one-on-one attention she offers to each customer. She never stocks more than six of any item, so her customers never see themselves “coming and going.” Additionally, there is always some sort of special sale happening. She has a frequent buyer program, which can result in a twenty dollar gift card to her most loyal customers, and if you register your birthday at Magnolia’s, you may purchase everything during your birthday month at a ten percent savings…EVERYTHING!!!
So, the next time you are looking for something uncommon and beautiful for your favorite mom, sister, aunt, wife, or daughter… pop into Magnolia’s. If you love clothing and accessories that are unique and fine… pop into Magnolia’s. If you want to check out the latest trends in clothing made of natural fibers that have great flair…pop into Magnolia’s! You will find a huge amount of style in one itty bitty space.
