If there’s one thing many women share, it’s a love for chocolate, and a hatred for trying to find a bra that fits. Now, you can kiss that hatred good-bye, thanks to Ribbons and Bows boutique. There a lot of reasons why I like Ribbons and Bows. I appreciate the fact that I can walk in to buy a gift for a personal shower, and not feel incredibly awkward the entire time I’m there. Everything is pretty, affordable, and of good quality. And it’s a store for intimate apparel that is actually classy and well-done.
Believe it or not, the boutique actually began as a dream and a great idea. In 2004, owner Ashley Sinclair had a desire to help brides-to-be find and create their own, unique lingerie selections. She started the business out of her home and began holding bridal parties where attendees could purchase gifts for the soon to be Mrs, knowing that everything was of high quality and exactly what she wanted.
That same business took off, and almost seven years later is a thriving business located in the Village Shopping Center on 82nd and Quaker. According to Ashley, Ribbons and Bows strives, “to be a classy, elegant intimates and sleepwear boutique, offering a full range of inventory to accommodate every woman’s needs.”
You might be a bit skeptical, wondering what makes Ribbons and Bows different from the intimates section of any department store. Allow me to explain:
- the variety of the selection is great, able to meet a tons of different body styles, tastes, and needs.
- the quality of the merchandise is great. I’ve bought items as gifts and as personal use, and have been pleased with how well everything has help up over time.
- unique styles that you can’t get anywhere else.
- bridal registries and parties for personal showers.
- personal fittings with people who take the time to make sure you get the best service they can give.
- gifts uniquely made: you can get almost anything monogrammed with a sweet message, a name, a date, or initials.
- sweet service from people who enjoy what they do.
Beyond that is Ashley’s dedication to incredible customer service, and her passion for what she does and her love of Lubbock. I’m a big fan of spending my money in places where people take that fact seriously. Don’t believe me? Check them out for yourself. Go to the store, shop online, or visit them on Facebook. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
