Mother-daughter duo launch new storefront boutique in downtown Hartsville
Beaus and Belles Boutique, an inclusive and affordable women’s clothing retailer, is proud to open its doors in downtown Hartsville on May 30. The online boutique will sell women’s clothing, accessories, gifts, home goods and more at its first brick and mortar store.
Lauri Dunn-Trzebiatowski and her daughter Alexis Graves, previous residents of Beaufort, knew they wanted to open a boutique to match every women’s budget and body without compromising on quality or style.
“I’ve been a general manager of different clothing stores and boutiques for many years and felt inspired to put my heart into my own project,” Dunn-Trzebiatowski said. “Something about South Carolina always calls you back no matter how many places you’ve been to or lived. It only seemed fitting for us to lay some roots down here permanently in the South Carolina community.”
The online boutique is opening its first storefront location as South Carolina begins to reopen the state amidst coronavirus concerns. The mother-daughter duo plan on providing a safe and welcoming environment while following state regulations. Beaus and Belles Boutique will donate 10% of May 30 profits toward Feeding America in hopes of helping local food banks during the pandemic. Going forward, the boutique also plans on hosting a “Giving Tuesday” on the third Tuesday of every month. Customers will be able to vote for a charity the boutique will donate its profits to.
“It has been a difficult time for all of us, especially being in the community of small business owners,” said Graves. “Most importantly though, we are all so thankful we are healthy and that is what matters most during this time. We want our storefront to feel clean and safe for our customers while also giving back to the community.”
Beaus and Belles Boutique will open on May 30, at 10 a.m. pending state coronavirus regulations. Stop by for opening day giveaways, including 10%-25% off entire purchases. For more information on store hours and location, visit https://bbboutiquesc.com/.
