The Pebble Spa Company started as an in-home business and has grown into a small franchise of day spa's in northern MN. The Main location's once non-existant retail floor has grown in floor space year after year and is ever changing! This is all thanks to our owner/buyer, Wendy Lindsay. Her "addiction" to clothing has spilled over into her spa business years ago and THANK GOODNESS it did! Today, we provide boutique style clothing that you just might not find anywhere else. This unique collection has given us a reputation for being a MUST STOP shop when visiting our little town of Ely, MN.
And www.pebblefashion.com is born!
Over the past six months we have been working hard to bring our same "in store" shopping experience to you at home. We launched our on line store, www.pebblefashion.com. Taking pics, putting clothing online, loading it with all of our Body Products and Mineral Make Up line. Pretty much, looking around the store and grabbing what we think you might want to buy and making sure it's now available to you online. Now, no matter where you live, you can shop small, local, with us. Year Round.
Sizes and Availability..
Our size selection has always been "boutique" like. Meaning, we don't buy a lot of one style, Most of the time, we get one of each size, two if it's a popular size. This is an obstacle when running an online store. So, in all of our promo's we have had to STRESS, "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU LIKE, SCOOP IT UP!" because it might not be there tomorrow:) If you have shopped in the store in summer, you know it is very much the same experience! Don't think about that purchase too long, because the next person through the door might be just as in love with that top as you were. As we continue to grow, that will inevitably change...
It is likely that you will recognize our website models when you check into the Spa or come in to shop. Everyone has reservations or insecurities about their bodies. Our staff's body types represent our shoppers... everyone is different, all sizes all shapes. When I look at our staff, I see all different types of beauty... beauty that emerges in full radiance when they put those reservation away. By putting on clothing that makes them feel amazing, in a safe, comfortable environment. Bringing out the very essence of them.
This is all I want, for them, for YOU; our shopper. To create a shopping experience (in the store and online) that can make you comfortable in your decisions, and make you feel confident.
The Future of this Small Boutique...
Well, honestly... that is in your hands:) The "shop local" and "shop small" has been promoted by communities all over the world. You know the drill, big businesses swallow the small... you have heard it a thousand times. We have survived, prospered, thanks to shoppers like you. We like how small we are, like that we can give you personal service that you won't find in big business. We like knowing you by name, smiling at you when you come through the doors... or being able to send a personal email and help you with your online shopping. These things MEAN a LOT to us. I WANT to hand write your address on the package, walk up to our local post office and pop it into the mail to you. That IS what happens here. From every detail and picture on the website, to the person you will get on the phone if you call, we are all of a small handful of people who are here to help YOU... and I personally, LOVE that! And I hope you do too. Thank you!!!!!!
Newsletters and Feedback...
In order for this newsletter "blog" thingy to work... I need to hear from you! I will only be able to chat endlessly about topics ranging from fashion to closet cleaning, for so long! And then I will need to know what YOU want to hear about. Take advantage of our SMALLNESS:) Talk right to me, Michelle. I manage our Pebble Fashion Facebook (separate from the Pebble Spa Co. Facebook page), our Pebble Fashion Pintrest page (again, different from our Pebble Spa Co. Pinterest page) and our website www.pebblefashion.com. I can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more you can help us spread the good word... whatever social media type you prefer, the more we appreciate it!
This is just the first one, we have so many ideas "in the cooker" and I plan on sharing THEM ALL with you.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
