“We support CARTI because it has been Arkansas’ leading cancer specialist for decades. All of us have been touched by someone who has had to deal with this horrific disease. We feel honored to be able to support this important, not-for profit in anyway we can. CARTI aligns perfectly with our philanthropic engagements J. McLaughlin hosts.”
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 special? Our brand has always been more about style than fashion with superior design and impeccable craftsmanship. Stand out colors and a portfolio of signature prints lend unique touches to every seasonal collection. We are all about the details!
What has been your proudest moment during the pandemic? We love sending our customers a variety of items where they can try them on in the comfort of their own home. They’re able to keep the items that work for them and ship back the items that don’t. Shipping is always on us!
How would you describe your boutique to someone who has not visited it yet? Our store is entirely unique, attentively designed to reflect the town’s color, character and architecture. There’s a spacious, open feel while at the same time you feel as if you’ve walked into a cozy home. This attention to detail extends to our exemplary customer service.
