Bows and Arrows
Some somewhat sad fashion news to report today.
Business owner and all-around great gal Olivia Coelho e-mailed to say that she has decided to close her Olipom store in midtown.
As many shoppers will recall, Olivia lost her original Olipom store on 19th street in a fire almost two years ago. She reopened at 1115 21st St. Then, last fall, she expanded her vintage empire with Bows and Arrows several blocks away. And everyone (including Olivia) fell in love with it!
"It is sad, but it is only because I love Bows and Arrows so much, and because it is doing so well, that I would close Olipom," she says. "I just don't have enough love, energy and time to stock and manage and work both stores."
Olivia also enjoys sharing Bows and Arrows with local designer Trisha Rhomberg so, together, that focus and attention should be an asset at the boutique, which is at 1712 L St.
Parting words from Olivia: "Thanks to all of you for participating in what we did here. Olipom has been a great community shop!"
So who benefits? Shoppers, of course!
Starting today and running through Sunday, everything in Olipom is 50 percent off. The store's last-day sale (and big party!) is from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. next Wednesday.
I wish Olivia and Trisha all the best. They're midtown Sac's favorite fashion mavens!
