Zionsville resident and small business owner Lesley Jane Hunt recently opened a second location of her popular women’s boutique, Lesley Jane. The grand opening was Sept. 27 inside the Fashion Mall at Keystone.
Hunt had wanted to open a second store for years.
“I looked at a lot of different locations over the last three years or so,” Hunt said. “Then in May of this year, I started really looking at the Fashion Mall at Keystone. When a space became available that was the right size and location, I went for it.”
The new boutique is in the Saks wing of the mall and has the same aesthetic as the Zionsville store.
“The new location is smaller than the Zionsville location, but the design concept is the same,” Hunt said. “The same fixtures were designed and fabricated.”
Hunt offers designers not traditionally not found in Indianapolis, such as Jagger shoes, FRNCH Paris, Keepsake, The Jetset Diaries, Evidnt and Lucca.
“The key to me was to be able to provide really good quality at a great price point, but also sell items that had a classic look with a very modern twist,” Hunt said.
Hunt orders select pieces for each store. When sold, they are no longer available.
“I don’t necessarily re-order, so it keeps the merchandise looking fresh and something that you’re not going to find on everyone else in town,” she said.
Hunt wants the items she sells to easily incorporate into women’s wardrobes.
“I buy individual pieces so you can add them to what you already have,” she said. “I don’t necessarily buy entire outfits. It gives you the opportunity to mix that in with older things in your closet.”
