Shoptiques Spotlight On: Hadley Emerson

What inspired you to open your boutique?

I spent a summer in high school working for a large retailer and have been hooked on retail ever since. I love following the ever-changing styles and being able to help women find pieces that make them feel good about themselves.  I have always dreamed of owning a boutique that features unique designers with quality, classic styles offered at accessible price points. 

How long have you been operating?

A little over two years.

How did you get the name Hadley Emerson?

Hadley Emerson is a combination of my first and middle name.

Describe your clothes in three words.

Colorful, sophisticated, girly.

How would you describe the typical Hadley Emerson customer?

Women who like to look great without a lot of effort.  Whether our customers are looking for something they can wear to work then out on the town, or simply want to spice up their everyday wardrobe, I think we have something for everyone. 

What are some must-have pieces in your own closet right now?

I am definitely a separates kind of girl, I love having a variety of tops that can be paired with denim, shorts and skirts.  Right now, my go-to pieces are breezy bright silk blouses, skinny coral jeans, shorts in summery geometric prints, and fun beaded statement necklaces to dress up any outfit. 

What does fashion mean to you?

I believe that fashion is a means of expression that can make one feel confident and beautiful.
