Olive and Ivy was born in a living room of an apartment in Springfield, Mo. It started moedestly enough. Just a dream to be able to stay at home with our kids someday. However, that quickly evolved into filling a gap in the market that we felt was being missed. We found out that there are a lot of amazing boutiques with high prices. There's also a lot of department stores with lower prices. However, there aren't as many boutiques with great styles AND lower prices. We wanted to find the happy medium between quality pieces and reasonable prices. By doing this, we aspire to give all ladies an opportunity to participate in what we are building. We want college girls, young families, single mommas, and every other lady to be able to shop with us and leave more confident than they were when they arrived at our store.
It's not all about business though. Confident people do amazing things and what you wear can have a huge impact on your confidence, your self-image and the decisions you make. Helping ladies feel more confident is our way of empowering amazing ladies to do amazing things. We also make efforts to give back to the community and support organizations that are doing good things in the community. When you support Olive and Ivy, you support more than just a business. You support building communities and spreading love to those in need. Our customers are helping make this world a better place, and we think that's pretty amazing.
