On a Friday afternoon in April 2004, I was walking downtown Dallas, buying Fresh Milk Bath and T. LeClerc Powder. I thought to myself, “I am 35 miles south of McKinney, buying quality cosmetics and bath products because there is no place at home to buy them”.
Sunday morning I asked my husband what he thought about me opening a cosmetic and bath boutique. He thought it was a great idea, and on Monday, I hit the ground running. I opened Sharla’s Boutique four months later, August 4, 2004.
Weary of the department store scene, I wanted a relaxed, but fun atmosphere where women could come to shop or just visit. Somewhere you will always be encouraged to experiment with as many products as you like until you find what’s perfect for you.
Carrying lines with excellent ingredients will always be a requirement of my store. Too many cosmetic companies make outrageous claims, and I do not want to be a part of such marketing. Most of the lines in my store receive the press they do because of their beautiful stories, amazing ingredients, or their fast-acting benefits.
I am greatly indebted to you, my customer, for making this venture so rewarding. The friendships and fun I’ve had since opening has made my investment worth every penny. Thank you for being apart of the Sharla’s family, I am blessed beyond measure.
