Some of the nation’s top fashion lines have found a home in south Wenatchee.
The new women’s clothing boutique SaVi (pronounced “savvy”) features gotta-have brands such as Lucky Jeans, Hudson Jeans, Michael Stars, Z Supply, Black Swan and a handful of other super-stylish lines.
“We thought our target clientele might be the younger, hipper, trendier customer,” said SaVi owner Keena Ellard. “But we’re seeing women of all ages coming in to shop — teens, college-age, seniors and plus-sized.”
The 1,800-square-foot boutique, located in the former J. Russell Marketing offices near Encouraging Words bookstore, opened Aug. 20 and has been hopping ever since, said Ellard. Popular items include Z Supply’s back-to-school tees and hoodies, high-style dresses for autumn, Big Buddha handbags, jewelry and other accessories. A line of shoes is expected in the spring.
Prices hover around $60 to $80 for basic tops and pants. High-end jeans can run $200 a pair.
Ellard, 38, studied fashion, interior design and business before devoting herself to being a stay-at-home mom and raising two kids. “Now that they’re in their teens,” she said, “I’ve got the time to concentrate on some of the things I love — such as SaVi.”
