Women be SHOPPING! WOMEN BE SHOPPING BABY! ~Dave Chappelle
Shopping is an integral part of our lives. We shop for our needs and we also shop for our wants. Some of my best friends use shopping as therapy and most times we use it as an excuse to catch up/reconnect. I wanted to share the coolest/prettiest concept for girls who SHOP. Chic Boutique Tour owned and operated by our pretty blogger friend Rosalyn Wilson is a fabulous Girls Day Out event for WOMEN WHO SHOP!
When I heard learned about Chic Boutique Tour not too long ago and I had to pull her to the side to ask her about her shopping tour company. Chic Boutique Tour is gearing up for it’s Spring Indulgence 2012 Chic Boutique Tour this Saturday, April 7, 2012. Check out our pretty conversation below:
1. How did you come up with the idea of Chic Boutique Tour?
The concept of Chic Boutique Tour came to me (May 2010) while preparing for a girl’s day out to an A-List movie premier where she walked the red carpet. “In Atlanta, I’ve been to many soirees and events with my girlfriends where we dress up and are treated like celebrities for the night. Almost every woman yearns to be a “STAR” at least once in her life. I created Chic Boutique Tour as a way to give women an escape from their everyday realities, where they can experience the fabulous life, if only for one day. It is the Ultimate Girl’s Day Out where women can look fab, mingle, eat, drink, and shop in an affordable way!”
2. How long have you been in business?
Now that I think about it, this April will make 1 1/2 years. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun!
3. What qualities do you look for in boutiques when you are creating your itinerary?
We secret shop each boutique to make sure that it is “Chic” of course. We try to make sure that the boutiques have affordable options for most incomes. We also make sure that each boutique on a particular tour offers items that aren’t too similar. We want as many styles as possible to be represented.
4. What kinds of girls or guys do you tend to attract?
We attract all types of women. When the company first started, we thought that only young trendy women would be interested in Chic Boutique Tour. Over time we have found that all types of women are interested. From stay at home moms to socialites with no children, from workaholic 27 year olds to established 40 year olds. It seems that most women are screaming for a chance to not worry about the everyday “hustle and bustle”. Fortunately, Chic Boutique Tour offers them that chance.
5. Chic Boutique Tours is such a cool concept! What advice would you give an up and coming entrepreneur and/or blogger?
I would advice new entrepreneurs to learn their market and be an expert in the service/product that they offer. I also recommend that you find your niche. Figure out what sets you apart from others who do what you do and then run with it. ALWAYS offer excellent customer service. People will come back to you based on your service alone. Lastly, support as many other entrepreneurs as possible. Often when you first start-up, your peers are the only customers that you have. When you support them, they will want to support you. Plus, it feels good to support other people’s dreams.
6a. Do you have a favorite boutique?
Every boutique that has been on Chic Boutique Tour is my favorite!
6b. That might be tricky. Do you have any memorable stories worth sharing from past Chic Boutique Tours?
Honestly, the smiles that I see throughout our tours is always memorable.
7. Is it too late to get a seat for next weekend’s Chic Boutique Tour?
No, it’s not too late, we have a just a few more seats left. Tickets can be purchased at www.springindulgence2012.eventbrite.com.
8. How much does it cost to attend? What is the start time and end time of the event this Saturday? What is included in the purchase?
Tickets are $55 or $90 for two. The tour begins at 11am with a Pink Carpet Social and the actual tour begins at 12pm. Tickets include lunch, unlimited cocktails, discounts and transportation. We will have a stylist on-board, shopping, and you don’t have to drive around or empty your pockets filling your gas tank. Chic Boutique Tour is the perfect way to discover all those fabulous boutiques that you drive by on the way to the mall. Have the time of your life for a good cause. A portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the Lupus Foundation.
