The Grove welcomes City Boutique
Sheryl and James Meyers of City Boutique have been in the shoe and clothing business for 10 years. Sheryl first started selling shoes out of her house, but after opening her first store in Jamestown Mall, Sheryl realized this was her passion and she could be successful in this new venture.
Sheryl Meyers is close friends with Sonja Merritt, the previous owner of The Little Blaque Dress. They first met over 5 years ago, when Sonja stopped into Sheryl’s St. Clair store looking for a pair of shoes. In fact, it was Sheryl who inspired Sonja to make the move into the clothing industry and open Little Blaque Dress. They have been friends ever since, and when Sonja decided to close Little Blaque Dress, Sonja encouraged Sheryl to move her business into the Grove.
After meeting with Guy Slay of Mangrove , Sheryl and James felt at ease about the move from St. Clair Mall. Guy has helped them make the transition into a neighborhood boutique. Sheryl has a strong client base from her precious locations in Jamestown and St. Clair malls, and her loyal customers have followed her to the Grove. Sheryl has also enjoyed the walk in traffic she has gotten, and says her new customers in the Grove have been very receptive to the store. Sheryl is looking forward to the change of pace, setting her own hours and managing the store every day. James and Sheryl will be the only employees at City Boutique, giving them the opportunity to interact directly with customers.
The “City Boutique woman” is outrageous, trendy, club going and fun. She is not afraid to step outside of the box and likes to stand out in a crowd. City Boutique offers statement pieces, including apparel, shoes and accessories. City Boutique only carries a limited number of each item, 3 pieces of clothing and 6 pairs of shoes, one in each size. They also carry a line of eccentric t-shirts, with slogans that are sure to draw attention.
Wanting to support local businesses and get better acquainted with the neighborhood, Sheryl and James have taken it upon themselves to explore a different business in the Grove every Sunday. A couple weekends ago, they visited Novak’s and last Sunday they had a delicious meal at Layla Lebanese. Sheryl and James are looking forward to future Sundays spent in the Grove.
City Boutique will be selling their unique line of t-shirts at this year’s Grove Fest on October 6. Sheryl is also working on a Grand Opening for City Boutique, with plans for sometime in late October. City Boutique is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 4300 Manchester at Tower Grove.
