With a little more leisure time at hand this Easter, there is ample opportunity to enjoy the indian Summer at Stanwell Park and discover one of the newest additions to the Articles Art Gallery complex on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, with the arrival of Boho Chic, the fashionable brainchild of Wendy Roche.
After many years working with her partner in Sydney as a Clinical Consultant/Office Manager, and living between Leichhardt and her home in Stanwell Park, Wendy wanted to spend more time at home here and found this to be the perfect opportunity to do so.
“I have not owned a boutique before but have owned and operated a number of successful businesses and thought this would be the perfect fit for a fashion addict like me to indulge in my passion whilst helping others find something a little different or brighten up their wardrobe.” says Wendy, “Because I still travel to Sydney a few days a week I’m able to pick new pieces each week to keep the store fresh and up to date.”
Wendy recently opened the store after taking over the premises from Stanwell Park Boutique which had been operating there for 8 years.
“I’m into my fifth week and have been really delighted with the response. The feeling that I’m getting is that people are looking for something different to take home with them if they’re down for a visit and the locals are happy with my reasonable pricing and the style of clothing that I stock. My store is filled with bright and colourful pieces with a bohemian resort feel. Unique styles that I source from individual suppliers in Sydney and from around Australia. There’s something to suit every shape and size and I cater for sizes from 8 to 18. I’ve kept the pricing quite reasonable with the average price range from $19 to $60. Also, you won’t find the same thing in the large department stores and shopping centres.”
Wendy is making room now for the Autumn range and is having a “Happy Easter Weekend Sale” with up to 50% off selected items. Boho Chic will be open from Friday 29 March through to Monday 1 April 2013 along with the other shops in the centre, including Articles Art Gallery, Antiques and The Palms Cafe.
