In March that graduate ('03) Lisa Feniola was opening her first online clothing boutique. She told us that she had hopes to find a brick and mother location for the business but had to settle with running the trendy fashion boutique online out of her mother's home in East Haven instead – her mother, Anna Feniola, is also a partner in the business.
Today, her hopes for Shoppolished.com will be realized when she and Anna open their doors at 1122 Main St., Branford on the Green. She will be setting up Shop Polished clothing store where (downtown location) was most recently.
"We carry affordable clothing and accessories that are affordable and trendy. Targeting the Y Generation with our styles and price point," said Feniola. "Our theme is unique with its bedroom feel – imagine shopping in your best friend's closet."
Shop Polished will carry brands such as Ark & Co., Aryn K, Blu Pepper, Elan International, Funky Junque, Ya Los Angeles and offer premium denim, DL1961. You can also follow them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/shoppolishedboutique.
A soft opening will be today at 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Tentative hours are:
Monday to Friday: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
