Shop Ivy Boutique in Valpo for Unique, Affordable Finds!

O to the M-G….if it doesn’t stop snowing soon, I think I might cry. This weather is severely inhibiting many of my favorite things: running, wearing different shoes everyday of the week (I currently feel committed to my snow boots only), and of course…shopping! When spring finally does arrive, for women in Valpo or the surrounding areas, there may be no better place to peruse unique, feminine finds than Ivy Boutique. Located on 23 Washington St., amongst Valpo’s other shopping and dining treasures, Ivy ensures it’s shoppers won’t have to spend a fortune to keep themselves stylishly outfitted. Prices range from $10-$145, the higher end being rare and typically would be outwear or leather pieces.

We’re all anxious to get outside again, so what can you expect at Ivy in regards to spring clothing? Ivy owner, Dina Ranieri says she looks for items that are pretty and unique, avoiding things that are so trendy they’re only good for a short time; instead, she selects pieces that can transition from season to season. As Dina says, “People can get trendy items at Target. I try to find one-of-a-kind items you don’t see everywhere.” For spring, a few styles we’ll be seeing at Ivy include chic Aztec and tribal prints, beautiful floral pieces and tea-length dresses. 

Ranieri describes her average shopper as, “savvy, sophisticated and unique. The type of woman who knows a cute sundress shouldn’t be $250.”

Ivy Boutique is open Tuesday-Friday 10-5 and Saturday 11-4, with daily seasonal hours taking effect in December.

Below are a few of my favorites from Ivy’s winter season:
