Leanne Caidler wants you to look good.
At her downtown Chilliwack store Magnolia Clothing Boutique, Caidler’s goal is to help the wonderful women in town feel valued. She cares about her community, and decided the best way to help was to give her neighbours more comfortable, convenient, cost-effective options for fabulous fashions.
- Running errands this weekend? Magnolia Clothing Boutique has you covered with comfortable casuals.
- Working nine to five? Caidler will set you up with good quality basics and signature pieces to get that promotion
- Making a splash on Saturday night? Magnolia keeps up with the latest trends and stocks fun, fashionable options that complement your body’s shape without breaking your budget.
“Chilliwack is a great town with great women who deserve to have great shopping options, right here in town,” says Caidler.
That means working hard to keep prices affordable, keep up with the latest fashion trends, and find brands who carry a wide range of sizes.
In the year and a half since the store opened Caidler has been eager for feedback from her customers.
“A lot of people ask if we have plus-sizes, and though we don’t technically carry them, our extra-large often fits a 2X.”
And if nothing fits that’s not the end of the story.
“I’ll ask people to recommend favourite brands or styles, because we do want to accommodate everyone and help people look stylish.”
Good quality clothes at a reasonable price
Caidler knows shoppers have other options, but she believes in the products Magnolia Clothing carries.
She’s not interested in selling 300 dollar t-shirts, but does believe in investing in quality clothes. The prices in big box stores might be appealing, but their lifespan is disappointing.
“Anytime you buy one of those cheap shirts, the first time you put it in the wash it’s lost its shape or it’s half its size,” Caidler says, “Our products will stand the test of time.”
When it comes to wardrobe basics that never go out of style, it’s cost-effective to invest in quality items that you know you can wear season after season.
Sisterhood of the travelling pants
You know the story of the pair of jeans that magically looks great on four friends of different sizes? Magnolia Clothing has those jeans. The Yest Joy Jean is a push up jean that’s form-fitting with a bit of stretch and forgiving coverage at the waist.
“A lot of different brands try to do a push up jean, but Joy Jeans actually work!” says Caidler.
