Introducing Sweet Lisa of Apricot Lane of Alpharetta.
BBC: Why did you want to open a Boutique?
LISA: I have always wanted to open a clothing boutique. I love fashion as a personal expression and creative outlet. I love how it has the ability to empower you. It’s a business where people come in because they want to. Clothing, shopping, and socializing spark joy. Being able to offer that seemed like something simple, but impactful. We’ve sold outfits that people wore on honeymoons, engagement parties, graduations, pictures. These are such special memories and we get to be a part of that!
BBC: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
LISA: Head of public relations for the New York Yankees!
BBC: What do you like to do on the weekends? (Aside from running your fabulous Boutique)
LISA: I love to run. I used to run marathons back in the day, but these days, I’m happy just getting out and running for fun. I also love to bake, eat, and shop!
BBC: Who is your favorite fashion icon?
LISA: Audrey Hepburn. Classic.
BBC: Who is a female that empowers you and why?
LISA: My best friend Jennifer. She is 38 weeks pregnant and a mom to an amazing 7 year old. She also works full time, whips up multi course gourmet dinners, and doing all the homeschool/virtual learning stuff. She takes everything in stride, literally never complains, or sleeps! She hustles nonstop, but always makes time to be a mom, friend, wife, daughter, sister, etc...
BBC: Is there a woman-owned business you would like to shout out?
LISA: All of the amazing boss babes at halcyon! I love our community and that so many of us share a similar dream.
BBC: What is one piece of advice you would give a woman who wanted to open a Boutique?
LISA: I would tell them to do so with passion. Sell products that you are truly obsessed with. That it’s hard work, but hardly feels like work. That drive, dedication, and determination are crucial. And to always have fun.
