“young chicks and hip hens”
After a shared partnership in multiple retail stores for 20 years ended in 1996, life took several directions leading to Real Estate in South Florida and an Executive position with one of the largest fashion retailers in the country. When the economy turned for the worse it seemed that home was the place for this small town southern girl. So, home is where I landed. In 2010 I opened I luv linens and pearls, a very small boutique, in a gorgeous antebellum home that was shared with the owners of a florist and gift shop called Simply The Best. After one year I moved to a larger renovated downtown location where we have been blessed with support from our community and surrounding Southwest Georgia area and beyond. Our retail brick and mortar store is a place where ladies go to get the latest lifestyle clothing and accessories in the area. We have expanded into e-commerce by customer demand. Social media is an important part of our growth.
Our mission is to create a welcoming environment where everyone feels special even in cyber-space. We understand that we are a part of our customer’s lifestyle and share in a small way their daily lives and most important occasions. It is a privilege and a responsibility which we are dedicated to the highest standard. We are in the business of creating memories. Customers from 20 or 30 years ago often remind us of a special time in their life and that special dress for their special moments. It may still be in their closet. It makes me smile. Our team has an attitude of appreciation for the role we play in the lives of all who visit us.
Meet the members of the team….young chicks and hip hens. We have a combined retail experience of more than 60 years! So, you can tell we love what we do!
Holly has been with linens and pearls for 4 yrs and has a background in management with Kate Spade specialty stores and major department store chains, as visual merchandiser and buyer. She’s one of our “pearls girls” models and all-around sweetheart! She’s married to a farmer and they have an adorable 2 year old, John David.
Lynne started with linens and pearls 2 yrs ago and has been working on her RN degree at the same time. She also has been a boutique assistant in her teens and has experience with a major sporting goods department store in management. As a Mother and Grandmother “Sassy” and a former school teacher she adds that “let’s get organized” personality that we need so much. She is our petite “pearls girl” and model when we can talk her into it!
Christy came to linens and pearls recently and has worked in corporate human resources, and traded that office position for a career in fashion which led her to a large specialty store in Florida and now to us. She is married and has also spent 3 years on the circuit as a successful professional barrel racer and her babies “for now” are her two horses. She is our newest “pearls girl” and model.
Robin is in our accounting department. She is married and is “supposed” to be retired but just can’t give up that kind of fun! We are glad she takes care of all of that accounting! And, she will oblige us from time to time as a model and is definitely a “pearls girl”!
We are sincere in our Faith and one our favorite scriptures is…. “She is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25. So, as you can see. We have a wonderful collection of beauty, sweetness, smarts and loving ladies……young chicks and hip hens!
Meet the Mascots!
"Linny" and "Pearl"
And then there’s me “Sam” Sandra…..Just one of the hip hens!
To all those ladies out there!
