“CARTI is an amazing organization that has impacted and helped so many members of our local community fight cancer. Everyone probably knows at least one person who has battled cancer at some point in their life. It’s an awful disease, and I’m very thankful that CARTI exists to help those affected by cancer.”
Celebrating the shop + live local philosophy, many Central Arkansas boutiques share a commitment to the CARTI mission that is unwavering. As we look forward to the return of the most fashionable event of the season – Festival of Fashion 2021 – we honor businesses supporting businesses, friends supporting friends and encourage the shop local philosophy. Each shares insight + inspiration for fall fashion. Join the FUN – Festival of Trees on November 19th. Because now more than ever, community matters….
What makes your boutique unique? I would say it’s a mix of guest service, experience and price point. Our mission is to always make sure our guests feel better leaving E.Leigh’s than when they came into the shop.
What has been your proudest moment during the pandemic? Graduating from college with my bachelor’s degree. College is stressful enough on its own and adding the weight of the pandemic on top of that wasn’t easy, but thankfully I was able to obtain my degree and I am now one step closer to my career.
How would you describe your boutique to someone who has not visited it yet? Fun, affordable women’s fashion that carries a large variety of styles for women of all ages. At E.Leigh’s, we strive to make sure you feel better leaving than when you came into the shop.
