A new boutique opens downtown
A new business L’aube Boutique opened on Thursday, July 24 at 11 Plaza Circle, Suite E. in the former Plaza Grocery Building.
Owner Fariza Padilla, who has had the online business for more than a year, wanted to bring French flavor to Patterson in a relaxing environment and opened the storefront. Her vision when she started her business online more than a year ago was to try to offer a variety of items and designer fashions to customers.
L’aube meaning “The Dawn” carries men, women and children’s clothing and accessories and such brand names as Tori Burch, Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Coach. Customers are invited to sit back and relax in a welcoming environment and connect to the Wi-Fi while sipping coffee or tea and listening to music such as Frank Sinatra tunes.
Padilla offers private gatherings and a relaxing time for groups who wish to try on clothes and accessories and enjoy time together. Padilla, a 15-year veteran herself in the Army Reserves JAG, gives veterans discounted rates.
“My idea is you can dress up with accessories,” Padilla said. “I’m bringing affordability and convenience in design and fashion to Patterson. I think we can all look great and not spend a ton of money on what we wear.”
L’aube Boutique hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The store is open weekends by appointment only. Padilla said she’s flexible and will work on mutually agreed times with individuals and groups who want to buy at the shop.
L’aube Boutique’s website is email@example.com.
