Business of the Month – Red Chandelier Boutique
Find the latest trends and styles in clothing at the recently opened Red Chandelier Boutique, the City of Smiths Station’s Business of the Month.
Opened April 13 by Smiths Station native Christy Blythe, the boutique is slowly but surely building a loyal clientele.
Combining her passion for boutique shopping and years of experience as a librarian at East Smiths Station Elementary, Blythe said she is now living out her life dream in owning and operating her own business.
“Smiths Station really needed a cool place like this, and when he started building his storage business (Storage Station) with some retail spaces here, it seemed like the right time to do it. Plus, pairing my love of clothes shopping with my skills of helping people find what they need, it was the perfect opportunity for me,” Blythe said.
Located in the central portion of the store is the boutique’s namesake, helping facilitate an atmosphere and shopping experience that leaves customers feeling “beautiful and gorgeous,” according to Blythe.
“We have trendy, stylish things that a high school or college-age girl could wear to school or a special function. But then it spans all the way to the working woman because I have pieces that aren’t just crop tops … they have sleeves and they appropriate for where they work,” Blythe said. “I’ve been a boutique shopper for a long, long time so I already had a vision for what items I believed should be in the store. I don’t stock anything in the store that I wouldn’t wear myself … and with our overhead being lower, I can offer more affordable pieces for people.”
A joint grand-opening celebration with representatives from the City of Smiths Station is slated for later this month.
Blythe added that she recently launched online shopping for her website, www.shoptheredchandelierboutique.com.
