“CARTI has become a staple in our community with such a strong presence and purpose. The staff and volunteers genuinely care for their patients and families. Their reach is expanding all the time.”
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 customer service: but friend and family service are more accurate. We develop such special relationships with our clients. We absolutely love our people.
What has been your proudest moment during the pandemic? Time and time again our customers continue to inspire and amaze us. We have felt so supported and we are profoundly grateful. This motivates us and allows us to take pride in what we do.
How would you describe your boutique to someone who has not visited it yet? We are a home-grown “lifestyle” boutique. We offer clothing for real, everyday life that makes our clients feel special and stylish. We have options ranging from our comfy Z Supply Lounge Wear to something swell for the cocktail hour.
