When you think of lingerie, you likely think of sexy undergarments such as lacy panties and bras, garters, see-through gowns, and cute boy shorts. You are also likely to think of big-name stores such as Victoria’s Secret and Frederick’s of Hollywood. But consider a different lingerie shopping experience…boutique style and for a good cause. Put this concept together and you have Marie Angelique.
A unique lingerie boutique located in St. Charles, Missouri on the historical Main Street along with a number of trendy bars, restaurants, and shops, Marie Angelique boutique specializes in a selective brand of bras, lingerie, and lounge wear that ranges in price from $30 to $150 per item with the average price being around $60. They offer a variety of beautiful bras ranging in band sizes 28-54 and cup sizes AA-N. They also offer body products and other trinkets such as cute jewelry. Marie Angelique offers shoppers a variety of European lingerie brands, something you may not find in the “other” lingerie stores. Brands you can find at this lingerie boutique include Prima Donna (Belguim), Curvy Kate, La Perla (shipped from Italy), and Elle Macpherson just to name a few. But what I think really makes this boutique stand out among others is their line of mastectomy products they offer, which is a part of their business inspired by family members who were struck by breast cancer. Marie Angelique not only sells these products but also offer a welcoming shopping experience for these ladies in a setting to make them feel as comfortable as possible while selecting and trying on items. Additionally, for all customers Marie Angelique offers personalized fitting for those who may need some assistance finding the perfect bra and lingerie and spacious fitting rooms for trying on items.
In addition to the selection of products Marie Angelique offers, the boutique also provides personal shopping assistance for men who need a little extra help finding the right gift for their ladies (men check the boutique’s website, www.marieangelique.com, for upcoming event dates on this!). The boutique also rents out space for private events such as ladies night out, bridal parties, and bachelorette parties. Their event space includes a beautiful dining area that looks out toward the patio overlooking the Missouri River. Before or after your event, with the boutique’s prime location you could also take a stroll to nearby bars and restaurants for additional nightlife options.
NOTE: A Social Tech Diva will soon have an event for the ladies at Marie Angelique. So come join me for a night out while we enjoy good food, drinks, and company. Stay tuned and check back on my site for the date!
