While the East Side of Cincinnati is hoppin’ with women’s fashion boutiques, there’s only one – LouLou’s Boutique – on the West Side of town (that I know of). So, as a proud West Sider, I had to partner up with them for an event to show them (and an important local cause) some love! The event benefits Cancer Free Kids, as a portion of all sales goes to them. So, I hope you’ll be able to find some time to make it over on Saturday morning, enjoy some mimosas with us, and shop for a great cause! More details below!
My friend Nancy who owns LouLou’s Boutique on the West Side (just about the only women’s boutique on that side of the city!) just sent me an email announcing a new event series she’s doing to make Sundays a little more stylish. Starting on May 1, she’s going to host special promotions, sneak peeks of new arrivals, and giveaways each Sunday. Sounds like the perfect thing to get me out of my sweats a little sooner on a Sunday! haha! 🙂 Below are all the details….
As a good westside native, I should have been into Peppe Ramundo & Son on Glenway Ave. by now, but last week was my first visit. A friend of mine told me I should check them out — said they had a lot of cool gift items for guys and they do alterations/tailoring for men and women. So, I popped by not knowing what to expect (I had previously thought they only did tux rentals). Boy, do they do the tux rentals! I got to see their entire upstairs area where they house all their rental inventory (hint: It’s a LOT of inventory!) but it’s also where they do all their custom work. I sat down with the owner Carmen Ramundo to learn more about how the business got started nearly 50 years ago by his dad, how he grew up with it and eventually took over. Pretty fascinating! I was really impressed, found some great gifts for the hubs, and I’ll definitely be back for some of the custom work! Check out the video to learn more!
