We're excited to see what owner Dara Dietz brings with her to our upcoming Boss Babe Pop-Up Shop on May 31st! We asked Dara a few questions about Parker Jane Boutique, here is what we learned...
What is Parker Jane Boutique?
PJB is a ladies online and market boutique offering today’s latest trends at affordable prices without compromising quality.
What made you start Parker Jane Boutique?
I have always been passionate about fashion and personal style. I have been a hairstylist for 15 years, and what goes better with awesome hair then fashionable clothing! I am always looking for that perfect top, dress or pair of denim. Not only do I want to feel and look good in what I wear, I don’t want to pay unreasonable prices. I have been following several fashion boutiques for quite awhile, spent hours researching and talking with others who own boutiques and decided I wanted to fill this dream of mine, but with my personal touch and style. Parker Jane Boutique was created to offer classy yet trendy quality made clothing that is affordable yet looks like it cost much more.
Who's behind it?
ME. I'm the sole person behind Parker Jane Boutique. I do everything from the ordering, tagging, social media, steaming, packaging the items for shipment and everything in between. I can honestly say I enjoy every minute of the business even the late nights steaming clothes. Ha! A little more about who I am…I'm Dara Dietz. I have lived in Gahanna, Ohio my whole life. It makes my heart happy knowing I'm creating a place for women in a city that I love so much! The name Parker Jane comes from my son, Parker, and my grandmother who’s middle name was Jane. Two of my favorite people in the world. I am very active day to day getting my son to his school events, baseball games and attending to his medical needs. I spend many hours not only ensuring my son has all his needs met first and foremost, but also looking for the best clothing that appeals to not just women my age, but women of all ages.
What makes Parker Jane Boutique Unique?
I believe the style of clothing at PJB is classy, often timeless and can generally be worn by women of any age. My mother is 60 and she purchases many of the same items that my thirty-something friends buy. I have received many compliments on how well the clothing I have chosen is made. PJB offers tops, dresses, sweaters, rompers/jumpsuits and a lot of different denim styles. Being able to offer something for everyone truly makes my heart happy!
Is there anything new on the horizon?
While Parker Jane Boutique is still very new, I am always thinking of the next thing. I am very much looking forward to spending the summer at many local markets right here in Columbus and also attending a large market on the lake in Huron in June. Once we get through the summer I plan to take some down time and see how I can take Parker Jane Boutique to the next level! I hope to be around for a long time!
Where can people go to learn more and follow along?
6. Parker Jane Boutique is currently an online boutique. Our website is www.shopparkerjane.com. We can also be found on Facebook in my private VIP group where I try on every piece of clothing as it comes in to show you what the styles look like on myself. This allows you to have a better idea how it might fit your body. New items arrive weekly and people in the VIP group get first looks at them. You can search Parker Jane Boutique VIP’s to join the group. I also have a business page on Facebook and an Instagram page. Both of those can be found by searching Parker Jane Boutique! All summer long we can be found at many central Ohio markets.
