If you haven’t heard about the ladies of Katie Leigh, you are in for a treat. But first, let me introduce you to Katie Leigh, an online boutique specializing in women’s accessories. I have personally done a little bit of shopping there, and I’m so happy that I have. I love that they carry good quality pieces at affordable prices. They are connected to the current styles and trends and keep updated looks in stock. The best part? The shipping is always free (in the continental US).
Now onto the ladies behind this beautiful and budget friendly boutique. Katie and Leigh Ellen are the sole owners and operators of Katie Leigh. They met and became great friends while students at East Carolina (Go Pirates!). They had a definite shared love of shopping and an even bigger love of finding good deals.
After graduation, Katie and Leigh Ellen both started their careers as teachers here in the Triangle. After a couple of years, Leigh Ellen started to notice the online jewelry market. The more they looked into it, the more they realized so many of the online deals weren’t exactly the deals they were looking for. Leigh Ellen started wondering why you couldn’t buy affordable jewelry that actually looked nice. Not to mention, every time she did find something she liked, the shipping would be outrageous. That’s when the idea was born. Why not create an online jewelry boutique where customers could count on stylish, and affordable accessories, and always count on free shipping. The two teachers, working with teacher salaries, decided to turn the idea into a business. That’s when Katie Leigh was born.
Even though Leigh Ellen and Katie don’t have official titles, Katie is most definitely the CFO. She definitely has a super organized and take charge approach to all things financial within the business. Whatever the roles, it seems like Katie and Leigh Ellen have found a great balance. Katie Leigh is a successful growing business that is focused on staying true to their original mission: providing affordable and stylish accessories.
