Featured Partner: Love June Boutique
Posted on by Vierra Reid
We want to welcome Love June Boutique out of Cartersville, Georgia to the Proof Eyewear family! Creator and owner, Leah Chitwood has turned her love for fashion into something that inspires any and everyone who walks through there shop doors. They are a women's clothing boutique that seeks to outfit the most stylish women of all ages.
1. How long have you been in business?
Since November 2014!
2. Number of locations?
Only one (for now!)
3. Give us a quick history about your store.
Love June Boutique was started by Leah Chitwood in November, 2014. Leah graduated from college in 2011 with a degree in finance but she has always had a love for fashion.
She is married to Michael and has two beautiful boys. She named the site after her two sons Tripp and River, whose middle names are JUde and EugeNE. Get it? It's pretty clever right? We thought so too.Many girls dream of owning their own boutique, and after years of imagining what having her own might be like, Leah decided to put her dreams into action and that is when Love June was born.
So, during the day, Leah works full time at Home Depot Corporate, but her nights and weekends are devoted to Love June. Every day the site and store are growing and the future looks bright we might even need to start selling more Proof sunglasses! (sorry I had to do it)
All terrible jokes aside...Juggling a full time job, a family and a new business might not be a walk in the park, but it is worth it to see customers wearing and loving the clothes that we sell. We are constantly working to make our customer's shopping experience the best that it can be!
4. Give us one mind blowing fact about your shop.
Love June is located under a 1982 bridge with several historic buildings located “under the bridge.” Contributing resources in the district consist primarily of attached commercial buildings dating mostly from the late 1870s to the early 1930s.
5. What are your most popular items?
Our most popular items are definitely our Piko Tops because of their comfort and versatility. They come in a rainbow of colors and you can dress them up or down which make them a staple in any women's wardrobe.
I can see in the future that Proof Eyewear will also be one of our most popular sellers!
6. Where can we find you on your lunch break?
I would love to be able to say something exciting but usually on our lunch break you can find us in the back steaming new arrivals or taking pictures for the website. OR we're hanging out at any of the delicious restaurants in downtown Cartersville.
7. What song best describes your shop?
We don't have a certain song so much as we have an artist. We love Michael Franti and all of his music because of his laid back, one love message and lifestyle. We believe in loving everyone who comes into our store and for living life in a laid back, easy going way. We want customers to feel relaxed and comfortable when they come into our store, like they are coming in to hang out with an old friend, and buy some cute new clothes!
8. Who’s your employee of the month? Why?
9. What’s your spirit animal?
Well I didn't know what it was sooooo I took an online test to see. Ha! Here ya go!
You are a Swan!
Swans are idealistic, open-minded, and passionate. Your good nature often leads people to think they can take advantage of you, but they should be careful—beneath that serenity lies a fighting spirit. Your love is fierce and unconditional, fueled by the certainty that it should last forever.
10. Why is Proof a good fit in your store?
Proof fits perfectly into our store because we are constantly trying to promote products that are good for consumers and the world. Proof is another company who cares about people and we appreciate that. We love that a portion of the proceeds go to certain charities and that the glasses are quality made.
