Welcome Village Boutique
The St. Marys Area Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome Village Boutique as its newest member! Owner, Trish Parsons, started selling dresses out of her home; and after much success, she decided it was time to open a storefront. After looking at multiple locations, she chose 203 East Spring Street in St. Marys as the perfect fit.

On February 14, several local business representatives gathered for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and the Grand Opening of Village Boutique. To thank those customers that supported the first day in business, the boutique gave out goody bags and ran a special sale. If you missed it, stop by the store, Monday-Saturday 11:00 am-7:00 pm, to browse all the great merchandise. 

Inside Village Boutique you will find a variety of formal, casual, and cocktail dresses and an abundance of accessories including jewelry, shoes, and scarves. Also there are plenty of business casual outfits to choose from. So if you’re looking for that one of a kind dress or just a seasonal scarf, stop at the Village Boutique and give Trish a warm hello!
