The posh clothing boutique, beauty + grace reflects a cozy, neighborly vibe within the Carmel City Center, featuring 38 designers and offering a huge selection of many exquisite items. From the tres chic denim wall to all the gotta-have tops, dresses, skirts, handbags, jewelry and shoes, you’re destined to find that perfect outfit or accessory to complete the new you in 2018.
“We try to help modern women dress for modern times from morning till night, as we live our multi-dimensional lives” says Jenni Meyers, owner of beauty + grace. “We may be running everywhere from school, to work, to a meeting, to the grocery store and to a dinner-date. We want to help you find that perfect solution to spice up your life, not necessarily a new wardrobe but perhaps a new addition whether it’s a comfortable pair of shoes, a unique handbag, or that perfect pair of earrings.”
For 10 years, Jenni was a meeting-planner all around the world. As she visited many cities she would check out the boutiques and dream of owning her own space one day. After having three babies (now ages 8, 9 and 10) she worked as a stay-at-home mom until they reached elementary school. During these eight years she was busy formulating her business plan, fine-tuning the details of her dream.
Meyers recalls how her husband once asked her, “How do you want to feel when you find that perfect dress or top?” She replied, “I want to feel beautiful and graceful.” This is how her brand originated.
The beauty + grace boutique offers fashion inspired by the real world. Not just because Meyers is well-traveled and brings the latest looks to Carmel but also because her store illustrates authentic flair in its décor. For example, the denim section suspends all the jeans from the ceiling using playground chains. This project was carried out by her supportive husband and 10-year old son. Also, a vast assortment of shoes is displayed on refurbished telephone poles that were carefully cut and stained.
Mark your calendar for an exciting promotion scheduled for Monday, February 12 when beauty + grace will host “Beer & Babes” from 5-9 p.m. Men are welcome to find something for their significant other while tasting an assortment of beers from local breweries.
Each month, beauty + grace hosts a special fashion event where a reputable designer flies into town, featuring a whole collection. You can shop for one day with access to real-world charm.
“Follow us on Instagram for daily fashion posts, new arrivals and upcoming events,” Meyers says. “I’ve come really far in two years, and I look forward to what the future holds. I welcome you to stop by and see us. We’ll help you find something special for yourself or a loved one. Bring this article in to receive a complimentary leather make-up bag with the beauty + grace logo, while supplies last.”
