In between Thanksgiving and the New Year – there is a holiday that no one but me celebrates. I had the honor of taking over The Plumed Serpent December 1, 2000. That was a big day for me. I was 25 years old and really did not know what I was getting into.
I had previously worked at Ralph Lauren and Nicole Miller as an account executive. Both were great places to work and both had fantastic perks – (can anyone say expense account and clothing allowance??) But I was missing the connection of working with people – not just buyers for stores – but actual clients. So – the opportunity to take over The Plumed Serpent came my way – and in my somewhat impulsive, confident manner – I seized it.
That was nine years ago. As I have grown so has the store. My family has grown by two children and the store has grown by about 1000 square feet! If I can survive 2:00 am feedings and a complete gut job on my salon – I can survive anything!
I have always said that we are not just selling wedding gowns – we are providing an experience. I would like to thank everyone who has been apart of this experience for the past nine years. Good, bad, pretty and ugly – I love what I do and I love that I am a part of people’s history. I have the honor of being a part of a very special day.
Thank you for giving me this honor!
