-- In 1988, Penelope Searcy had a vision for a new kind of shopping experience. She saw a real need for a store in which she and her two daughters could have fun shopping together: a store with excellent customer service, fair prices, and a great selection. Thus Penelope was inspired to open her own boutique, appropriately named "Penelope", on March 1, of that year. Following the success of the first location in Lynchburg, VA, Penelope continued to expand by opening stores in Farmville, Midlothian, Short Pump, Glen Allen, Charlottesville, and Forest, Virginia.
Penelope has sought to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere in all of her store locations with well-trained and ample staff to provide the very best in customer service. She and her daughters attend markets all over the United States to seek out the newest and best lines of ladies apparel, sterling silver jewelry, costume jewelry, and accessories. Penelope and her staff have been awarded titles such as "Best Boutique", and the store with the "Best Accessories"
, "Best Sterling Silver Jewelry", and "Best Costume Jewelry" by many local publications.
Penelope is now poised to grow once again. We are pleased to announce that Penelope will open a new store in Daleville, Virginia in March of 2013.
This store will be Penelope's first location west of Lynchburg and will open up new opportunities in the Roanoke valley.
