Gotta Go! Elizabeth Boutique Winter Clearance Sale
Elizabeth Erin Madsen has been sharpening her fashionista edge for 30 years.
The tall slender business woman is crunching numbers behind the counter recounting her latest buys from a NYC trunk show she visited over the weekend.
Her auburn locks twirl around her face and she is draped in a staple sweater piece she plucked from her racks. It's quiet in the store just before the 10am opening on a Tuesday. Beth and her staff are celebrating 6 weeks in their new location on Collegeview Ave - a thoroughfare of downtown Poughkeepsie's business district with views of Vassar College in every direction.
I scored this gorgeous navy blue sailor coat for $50 bucks!
EB supports U.S. made designs like the individual chic of Donna Morgan and mother-daughter designing duo Starr Luna. Two creative lines that reflect flare for fun and good use of color.
