THIS JUST IN...
The seasons are changing and so are we! Gladiola Lifestyle Boutique is embracing growth both as a team, as well as a business, and we sure are excited to let you know about it.
“In 2018 I wanted work smarter. I asked some ladies with gifts different than my own to share in the challenge of taking Gladiola to the next level. My purpose was to be able to love on women more, where I believed I was ‘called’ to be, and less at a desk.” ~ Renee’
Our very own Cornelia Christian, who has been a cherished part of the Glad team for 5 years, has entered into the position of Part Owner of Gladiola Lifestyle Boutique. Christian is thrilled to be taking on the role of part owner and is eager to continue to pour into the Glad community and contribute her talents to the business.
"I knew when I first met Renee that I wanted to be a part of her company. Her vision, creativity and generosity were all pieces of what I consider to be the Gladiola Culture. When Renee approached me about a partnership, I was thrilled. I love the Glad Lifestyle! I am excited about our growing business and look forward to seeing everyone at the store."
Among the shifts in team roles, Sue Tatom, a faithful team Glad member, is now tackling the new position of Operations Manager with enthusiasm and gladness. As Operations Manager, Tatom will oversee all Vintage Chicwear intake (because skeletons in your closet are never in style), local artist submissions, and donations.
"I am so looking forward to being more involved in helping expand my role in Gladiola, which has truly become another family for me. I get to come to a place on a regular basis where I feel like I don't work, I play and see so many friends. That's a gift I thank you for, Renee"
Because of the teamwork and collaboration of the Glad team, wonderful things are happening in Lynchburg, Lexington, and now Farmville, Virginia! Gladiola Lifestyle Boutique is beyond ecstatic to announce that we will be opening up a location at 205 North Main Street in Farmville, Virginia. The new store location will be holding its grand opening on Thursday, September 13, opening at 10 a.m. We are delighted at the opportunity to share our philosophy of celebrating individual style, respect towards the world, and appreciation for quality and timeless character.
