Renee’s Boutique is an online and mobile boutique, owned by Crystal Napier. Renee’s Boutique specializes in ‘professional and casual clothing for the curvy woman’. Yet, the reach is far greater. The concept of this boutique evolved from a journey of discovering passion and purpose. Crystal recounted the moments she realized she had been doing what she really loves all her life – helping family, friends, coworkers, and women of all shapes and sizes feel amazing and look their best. And it has been her personal mission to ensure that women feel comfortable shopping for themselves, which can be a challenge for some women who identify with being ‘curvy’ or what some may not consider to be the average body type.
Crystal is passionate about helping ladies feel good regardless of what size they are”. In addition to selling women’s clothing, jewelry, and accessories, Crystal creates a personal shopping experience for her clients, whether it’s to enhance inner beauty or stand out, interview or be recognized for a promotion, or get help with motivation. Crystal wants all women to “feel like the celebrity” that they are. Of all the joys she has received, she has found the personal exchanges she has had with her clients to be the most rewarding. Crystal feels blessed that women trust her with their style and lives, personally and professionally; time and time again her clients have demonstrated that they value her wisdom.
Crystal considers her life experiences and feels it is a part of her purpose to offer any encouragement she can to others. One of the greatest challenges Crystal faced was losing her father, whom she was extremely close to, and died from cancer six years ago. She recalled that period of her life being her lowest personally, struggling with depression and moments of complete despair. She uses these experiences as tools to help others – she wants others to know that they are important and are not alone.
Crystal’s father encouraged her to make sure she lives and enjoys her life by following her dreams. The name of the business is named in honor of her beloved father, who called her Crystal Renee. In 2014, after earning her MBA and ending a 10 year banking career, Crystal decided “it’s now or never” – to step out of her comfort zone and follow her true passion. She started Renee’s Boutique facebook page and online website. Several months later she had her first store location on East Market Street in Charlottesville, VA and then moved to Water Street. After some time Crystal started to reevaluate her business and how she was fulfilling her mission and vision and came to the conclusion that her clients loved her being mobile. She has been mobile ever since, conducting business as a vendor, pop-up shop, and at styling appointments.
