When E.Leigh’s Contemporary Boutique opened its doors in 2012 in Little Rock, Arkansas, a Grapevine resident would buy merchandise from the trendy boutique by placing phone orders and having the items shipped to her. Then one day as she was placing yet another order, she told Erin Hohnbaum, Owner and CEO, that she must open a store in Southlake Town Square. Flash forward three years, and that is now a reality.
E.Leigh’s opened its doors earlier this summer and is fast becoming the go-to place for the stylish and be-styled women of Southlake and surrounding areas. Offering well-known brands including Show Me Your MuMu, BCBGeneration, BB Dakota, Jack, Free People and Kate Spade Gifts at amazing price points, E.Leigh’s has something for everyone.
But what really sets E.Leigh’s apart from other area boutiques is the commitment to its customers. “We are 100 percent customer focused. Our goal is to make sure our customers feel like we are personal friends ... someone they can count on for reliable and honest fashion advice. If we don’t have what our customers are looking for, we will try our best to help them find it,” says Hohnbaum.
“E.Leigh’s customers are fashion-forward without being a slave to fashion. They love pieces that are fun, feminine and easy. Plus, we rarely restock items. Once something is gone, it is gone. So they love the idea of not being seen in a dress that everyone else in town has,” says Hohnbaum.
And as the fall season approaches, E.Leigh’s will be stocking up on the latest trends including details such as lace, fringe, embellished booties, furs, statement earrings, mod-printed minis and flared denim. From earthy neutrals to slightly muted garden hues, the color trends of Fall 2015 have an undeniable, effortlessly chic feel.
E.Leigh’s is also committed to serving the community and helping build awareness of the amazing, local organizations that reside in our area. The company recently launched a new program called ‘Mission Mondays.’ Each month they partner with a non- profit in each city with an E.Leigh’s location. They showcase the organization’s needs via social media and guide the public to the organization’s website and social media pages. Additionally, they host a special day each month in which 10 percent of all in-store sales is donated directly to the organization chosen that month.
