Local Resident Opens Yvonne’s Boutique

Monday, October 13, 2014

Parish President Natalie Robottom, Administrative staff, Economic Development Committee members, and a River Region Chamber of Commerce Communications Assistant joined Simmone Williams in cutting the ribbon to her new business, Yvonne’s Boutique. Offering stylish clothing, accessories, handbags, and shoes for fashionable women, Yvonne’s Boutique is located at 2809 Highway 51 in LaPlace.

By traveling to Los Angeles and New York to meet with potential vendors, Williams started her business online one year ago and has now opened her first store front in her hometown. “I have always wanted to work independently and always loved fashion,” said Williams of her new endeavor. “My grandmother also loved fashion. My boutique is named after her,” Williams added.

Yvonne’s Boutique is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and by appointment only on Sundays. Williams also offers custom orders for weddings, proms, carnival balls, and special items. “If you find it online, I will do my best to order it for you,” said Williams. “I am here to help each customer.” The rear of her shop is a wedding corner where she assembles bouquets and provides all items needed for a party. From an outfit to a corsage, it’s a one stop shop for all and includes Plus Sizes.
