Hi! My name is Melinda! I am the owner & operator of Pretty Please on Broad boutique, formerly Emily Kathyrn boutique.
Fashion has always been a passion for me. After moving back "home" from Charlotte, NC where I met my husband, Allen, I quickly realized that all of my fun, trendy boutiques were no longer as readily accessible as they once were in the "big city". I found myself, along with my friends and family, having to make the trek to another local town - or back to Charlotte - to find something that was both unique and affordable.
One day after leaving a cute little boutique and watching the owner interact with her customers, I thought "I want to do that!!" So I began working with another boutique owner part-time to get a feel for whether or not retail was for me. It didn't take long for me to realize that I absolutely LOVED it; every aspect of it, particularly meeting and helping the Ladies that would visit the shop. So after many LONG discussions with Allen, I decided to take a big risk and purchase the boutique from Emily Kathryn, and Pretty Please on Broad Boutique was born! We updated the retail space in Altavista, VA in August of 2016 and got to work on our new business venture!
To say I am excited is an understatement!
