If you’re looking for fresh looks for the season, Lesley Jane, a small fashion boutique in Zionsville has unique, trendy items for shoppers who want looks different from the major department stores. Owner, Lesley Jane Hunt always had a passion for fashion from spending time with her grandmother, who instead of baking cookies used to own a dress shop and had a knack for sewing. This experience with fashion and fabric inspired Hunt to open her own store, and Lesley Jane was born.
On the Lesley Jane website, Hunt talks about her grandmother, Nell and how her love for fashion inspired her. “I did not inherit my grandmother’s talent. I can’t even sew a hem. What I did inherit was Nell’s love of fabric, cut, fit and fashion,” Hunt says.
The store recently went through a major redesign, with new shelving and hanging units and Hunt is happy with the change. The boutique took out the hanging racks, and brough in new metal units to go with the new art theme of the store. Not only is there more space for product, Lesley Jane can now carry more items like shoes and other accessories, too. The remodel also offers the opportunity to bring in new lines not currently sold in Indiana. Meryl, manager at Lesley Jane is traveling a lot to try and find new lines for the store in L.A. and England.
“The styles change all the time, but we try and offer a lot of unique pieces”, Meryl says.
Lesley Jane has a unique variety of trendy women’s fashions and must-have basics. All styles and lines are hand selected to offer up a varied selection from different designers that are unique to the store.
“I try to find lines that aren’t in big department stores or in other boutiques in Indiana, or close by,” Hunt says. “If you’re coming here to go shopping, I want it to be unique.”
“I try to hit a very wide age range, so if a mother comes in with their 16 year old daughter, they can find something,” Hunt says.
Because of the variety of styles that fit all age ranges, the prices vary as well. From high-end classic wardrobe staples to the newest fashion fad, Hunt believes that you can find something in your budget that you will love.
