Construction Update #2: The Garage At Clinton Row

There have been some big changes at The Garage At Clinton Row since our last construction update in June, so we decided it was about time for a follow up post!

Here’s where we’re at in the construction process:

  • Almost all the suites are fully constructed and tenants are starting to get in and put their own unique personal touches on each space with their final build out.
  • The brand new exterior siding is up in front of the store fronts and  features brick, two different textures of wood planks, and industrial inspired metal siding details.
  • All the windows, doors and even two full size roll-up garage doors have been installed in the development.

All that’s left is for the tenants to finish building out their spaces, signage to be installed and (the element I’m more excited for) the current chain-link fencing to be replaced with brand new custom, decorative, metal panels on the sides of the building!

Indigo Shoppe Finds A New Home In Downtown Huntsville At The Garage

JMP_1760If asked to describe her store, Caitlyn Replogle has just one word for you: eclectic.

Founded just over a year ago, Caitlyn opened her boutique, Indigo Shoppe, in the Meridian Arts district of Downtown Huntsville as a place that could merge together her love of free-spirited bohemian fashion and her passion for supporting locally-made products.

“Most of our stuff is made locally, like the artwork, candles, lotions, soaps, and stationary,” explained Caitlyn. “We also feature a few local designers, it’s a good way to get their name out there and I feel like things that are made locally or handmade tend to have more meaning.”

And now, just a year after opening, Caitlyn is excited to take the next step in growing her business by relocating it to The Garage At Clinton Row. “We’re still pretty new, so this is taking a big step forward, but I think it’s a good step,” said Caitlyn. “My personality and my vision are downtown and the things that I carry in the store really fit in with the downtown theme, sort of funky and eclectic, and so I feel like The Garage will be the perfect spot for us.”

Curating a unique collection of bohemian, modern-vintage inspired goods, including women’s clothing, accessories, and a selection of beauty products, gifts, artwork and homegoods, it’s Caitlyn’s goal to create a space where her shoppers can go and “not just get clothes, but come in and find something unexpected,” she explains.

“I try and make it so anybody in any age range can come in and find something, so it’s a good mix,” said Caitlyn.

Caitlyn plans to relocate her shop to The Garage At Clinton Row in Downtown Huntsville in early October of this year.

Roosevelt & Company Brings The Full Service Men’s Provisioner Back To Downtown Huntsville.

rooseveltandco_huntsville
For nearly a generation, men’s retail has been focused almost solely on technology and sports with little attention to fashion, grooming and household goods. However, with tailored fit garments finding their way back into fashion and a growing number of designers embracing the classic styles of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, men are starting to ask for more. Luckily, Roosevelt & Company has the answer.

“I think from our perspective, ever since we’ve lived in Huntsville, Alabama (a little over 10 years now), there hasn’t been a store that has met that need,” Meggan Crunkleton, CEO of Roosevelt & Company, explained.

After years of traveling out of town to cities like Birmingham, Nashville and Atlanta to do their shopping, Meggan and her husband/business partner Wesley Crunkleton have decided that enough is enough. The time has come for Huntsville to have a men’s store of its own.

Roosevelt & CompanyPartnering with Roosevelt Upton III, who will serve as the director of retail operations, and retail consultant Miranda King of Haymakers & Co. in Nashville Tennessee, the pair plans to bring a brand new, full-service men’s lifestyle store to Huntsville, Alabama this fall.

“I’m excited to open a store where the men of our community can have options. I’m excited for there to be a place that is accessible, lets them feel good about themselves and find the quality clothing and lifestyle products that they’re looking for,” Meggan said.

In addition to meeting an underserved need in the community, Roosevelt is also passionate about the store’s location in the brand new adaptive re-use development, The Garage At Clinton Row in Downtown Huntsville. “It reminds me of my hometown back in Michigan, it’s not a large city at all, but the downtown area, back then, was the place to shop. There was a men’s store there that has been around for a long time, and that is where men could be men. And that’s what we want to bring to Huntsville.”

The store, which plans to open in early November, will be a complete men’s lifestyle store carrying items such as premium denim and sportswear, sweaters, buttons-ups and tailored clothing. In addition the store will feature a curated selection of gifts and provisions including, apothecary products, candles, travel bags, leather goods, sunglasses, barware, shoes, furniture as well as feature an in-store, one-chair, master barber for a complete one-stop shopping destination.

“We want to have a place for anyone where, if they need to buy a gift for a man in their life, they know they’re going to Roosevelts. Because they know they can find something there at various price points, but at each price point, it’s going to be a quality product that they can feel good about,” said Roosevelt.

But more than just providing a space where men can go shopping, Roosevelt & Company’s vision is to create a full service environment that welcomes anyone to linger, relax and build community with one another.

From fashion, to household goods, to grooming and the perfect haircut, for Roosevelt & Company, it’s about building relationships with the men of our community along the way, growing with them, and giving them the confidence they need to go after their dreams.

To stay updated on all the new brands and products the store will be bringing to town, check out their website HERE and be sure and follow Roosevelt & Co. on, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram where they’ll be making weekly updates and announcements about the store. You can also enter to win a $100 gift card to Roosevelt & Co. each month by subscribing to their monthly email newsletter HERE.

From Parking Garage To Fashion House: Downtown Huntsville’s Newest Fashion Destination Is An Ode To The Classic

DSC_8780_blog

As a teenager Kayla Adams remembers making the long fashion pilgrimage from her small hometown of Anniston, Alabama to Atlanta each season. Captivated by the glamour and elegance of old Hollywood, she and her friends would spend the long trip coveting after Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe from movies like Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Sabrina and Paris When It Sizzles, determined to channel the spirit of Holly Golightly with every piece they purchased that day.

And in the midst of those long drives and of talk about finding the perfect little black dress Kayla made up her mind that one day, she was going to open a store herself.

“I didn’t know where or when, it’s just always been my dream,” Kayla tells me as we sit down to chat.

“Just the idea of being able to dress women and help them feel confident and good about themselves, is something I’ve always had a passion for,” she went on to explain.

Now, after years of searching for the perfect space, Kayla is finally bringing that dream to life with her new store, Elitaire Boutique, in the Garage At Clinton Row in Downtown Huntsville.

“Fashion has always been a form of art to me,” she explained, excitement bubbling in her voice. “It not only shows movement, design and architecture, it also shows the world who you are and who you want to be. They may say to dress for the job you want, but you should also dress for the life you want to live.”

A full lifestyle boutique, Kayla explains that Elitaire will focus on clean, classic, sophisticated and timeless fashion for women. “I want this to be a place, that regardless of a woman’s size or shape, she can come in and shop without having to compromise her style. I want to have clothes that let women feel like they can conquer the world.”

As for the look of the store, “I want something you would see in a big city,” says Kayla. “Since the store is located downtown I want it to have a downtown feel, very urban, but also very chic and sophisticated with clean lines and big chandeliers.”

More than anything though, Kayla says she wants her clients to “leave feeling confident about what they’re wearing and the clothes they bought, knowing that they are timeless pieces that will grow with them over a lifetime and not something that’s going to go out of style in a few months.”

With a background as a fashion journalist for Women’s Wear Daily, Kayla is excited to have the opportunity to share her passion for fashion not only through the store itself, but also combine it with her passion for writing through an online lifestyle blog that will be attached to the store. “I’m excited to use the city of Huntsville in those and run stories and articles that people here can relate to,” Kayla explained.

Kayla plans to open Elitaire Boutique downtown in early to mid fall of this year.
