My daughter and I have decided to open a boutique (my dream). We want it to be classy & unique, but trendy and fun. We like bling...so we'll have lots of blingy jewelry, some unique dresses, jackets, & T-shirts. Lot's of girly girl things!
We want to use lots of mirrors....and thinking of colors black, white, and Pink.
Any suggestions for a cute, catchy, but classy boutique name? Thanks for any help!!

We have one here that sounds similar. It is called Dear Lizzie. Is there anyway you could incorporate your first names into the store name?

I feel from reading your description it would be whimsical, fluffy, light and not heavy feeling (lots of natural night not heavy drapery), trendy, somewhere you hope people will come with their moms, daughters, girlfriends.

If so, maybe use a few unique names ( I think I read on here that Wendy was made up by the author of Peter Pan, I had no idea) together to show the relationship.

Abbie and Lizzie (short nicknames implying intimate relationship to customer)

I got my cake for our wedding at a bakery called Sugarlips Bakery. I loved the name and they were decorated in the trendy style and colors you are using. I like the name Sugarlips!

Prissy's ? Might be too obviously fru?

I am not sure I am much help! I am sorry! I tried!

yes, that's the feel of the shop that we want. A place for girls of all ages to come to shop.
Sugarlips is so cute! I love the name for the bakery...I'll have to think on it though for boutique!
I had thought of "Oh La La"...but my daughters not crazy about it. Keep thinking here...you peas are always the best!!

What are each of your first names?

What age/demographic are you marketing to?

And, congratulations on your new boutique!

But initials are a thought

trying to think of something "off" or "different" that will stay in someones head.

But might not be your dream direction... just brainstorming.

There was a shop here that was all pink and black. They hung a couple of pretty chandaliers across the ceiling of the shop. The dressing rooms had hot pink with black damask cloth draperies. They also had a victorian sofa in the middle of the store. She painted it black and had the same fabric on the sofa that was on the curtains (just solid pink. Not damask). The walls were all a very soft pink. It was totally a girly-girly store! Their logo was a chandalier silhouette on a pink background with their name. Super cute! They also had Marilyn Monroe black and white prints framed in black hanging in a row on one of their walls. Those prints really brought the girly-girly theme of the store all together!

This is kind of what the chandalier looked like...


Have fun and enjoy your new shop!

i really like the "mirror mirror" suggestion..it has connotations of beauty, young women, fairy tales, innocence. plus ties in with your decorating, and i could see a business card/logo for you with an ornate frame around the words that would look very classy.

There is a scrapbook store in Houston called "By Design Scrapbook Boutique". The store is done up in black, white and pink. This likn has a very small photo in the top left-hand corner that kind of shows what it looks like:

They have painted frames, heavy curtains and cute couches throughout the store. VERY girly!

Best wishes for your dream!

I really like the suggestion of Mirror-Mirror. I think that is great!

There is a gift shop in a town near me called "Your Divine Indulgence".

Thanks to all the peas that took the time to help think of a name for our boutique. To the one who asked...my name is Kay...Grandkids call me KK. Besides Gabriel, I have a GD who is named Bella. We thought of incorporating her name in the title.
This is all so fun...but yet really hard to decide on a name that might make or break your business! Open for new suggestions too! Thanks!

princess lasertron posted a resource for someone she knows who helps people brand their companies. Maybe if you PM her she will share it with you and you could have some professional help to do it right just from the start.

I've always loved single-word or random type names for boutiques and stuff.
Traffic comes to mind. "Get stuck in Traffic" I don't know where that came from but it just hit me.
