Be Boutique featured on The Pulse SD
The Pulse welcomed Lisa Harrison, from Be Boutique & Adeena Wagner from Poema Skincare.
We spoke to Lisa about how fashion is in her blood and her how she got her inspiration from her Grand Mother who was a designer in NYC.We also showcase some of the looks she has in the boutique and how she curates and shops for each piece.
I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising from FIDM. When I graduated I headed up to San Francisco and started in the management training program for I Magnin, a high- end specialty chain store. I have worked for great retailers including Neiman Marcus, Saks fifth Avenue and Nordstrom.
In the early 90’s I was ready for a change and went to the wholesale side. I worked as a sales representative in the gift Industry for 14 years. Took a little time off to raise my foster/adopted daughter.In 2012 opened a designer resale boutique with a friend in Solana Beach. Soon after purchased an existing store called La Femme Chic. Fast forward to 2015 when I opened Bubbles Too Boutique with the owner of Bubbles Boutique, Gayleen Nichols. In 2016 I bought her out and created Be Boutique In our little Italy location. I believe all my life experiences culminated into my fabulous little store.
About her boutique:
We’re more than a boutique — we’re a treasure trove for all tastes. At Be Boutique, we strive to stock (and create) items that make our customers smile and inspire them to be a little more fabulous. You can find a gift to give, a trinket to wear, or a weekend chic look to don for a day in San Diego. We’re as passionate about our wares as we are about our neighborhood, and we can’t wait to share both with you. So next time you stroll through Little Italy, be daring and take a peek inside our shop — you never know what new surprises are inside.
A sense of humor and sense of fun are super important to us, which is why our voice is always lighthearted… and occasionally a little irreverent. Our content connects with locals and tourists alike by showing off our wares and showing our appreciation for our little slice of San Diego.
