I’m super excited to announce that our store, Ellie & June, is now open!  I couldn’t begin to express the gratitude I have for the support I’ve received from family, friends, business associates, and even strangers.  Thank you everyone.  Truly.  What started off as a swirl of ideas has finally blossomed into a reality; thanks exclusively to the support I’ve received from all of you.

Because Ellie & June is a store that embraces this beautiful generation of women and the next, it was such a joy to have my three year old daughter (the store’s namesake), my mother, her mother, my mother-in-law, and another very close family friend all involved as we took the store live.  Spanned across three states (Massachusetts, Colorado, and New Mexico), we were all able to join in a FaceTime call to toast and give libations to the store launch.  In full disclosure, I had a healthy dose of Cabernet, while those out West enjoyed champagne.  Ellie drank all of her orange juice as the adults where opening bottles, but she was happy to do a toast with her empty glass when it was time.

The store is just a baby today, but it’s my sincerest hope that I can nurture and grow it over the years.  Today, we’re starting off by offering a small collection of accessories and a few clothing items for women.  We’re thrilled to be carrying a selection of Bali ELF handmade shoes and bags; these pieces are incredible!   In July and August, you will see the orders we placed back in March for the fall season.  This will include a beautiful spread of girl’s clothing that I just can’t wait to share!!  I’m fortunate enough to be nestled just outside of Boston, so I was able to hit New York City (Hi Aunt Kim and girls!!) and Montreal in the same week to wrap up all of our fall orders earlier this year.

Thank you again, to everyone, for your words of support and encouragement along the way.  To my family back home in Colorado, thank you, I love and miss you all greatly.  To my husband, I can’t even begin.  This is just the beginning to a long commitment and adventure 🙂

I hope you’ll poke around the shop and share it with friends and family that you think will enjoy it as well.  Have a fantastic Thursday guys! Love you all!
