For several years, my family and I have traveled to the East Coast, drawn to its beauty and friendly population. I would regularly visit the quaint little boutiques that lined its picturesque streets and long to have similar stores back home in Orleans.
Rather than wait any longer, I have decided to open one myself. I could not be more proud to offer the Orleans community blanc&turquoise. To me, the name evokes the peaceful and soothing images of the sea - energizing my spirits and calming my mind. Blanc et turquoise, the colours of the sand and sea.
I can’t say that opening my own store was an easy decision. For the past 17 years, I have been a very devoted grade school teacher to hundreds of students here in Orleans. I have cherished the opportunity and every student that entered my class. Every child has something very unique and special to offer and it was my great privilege to draw that out. I think all my students know how proud I am of them.
Now that my own children have left grade school and are now embracing high school, well, on a good day… I also felt the call of starting something new and making it all my own. I could no longer resist.
blanc&turquoise is a unique and stylish little boutique store that many have suggested would have been a natural fit in the Glebe or Westboro communities - but I live here, in Orleans. I have been a proud Orleans resident for almost 30 years and have greatly benefited from this thriving community. I have heard from many residents how welcome a boutique of this kind would be to the area. I sincerely hope that will be the case. I could not be more proud to finally open our doors to this community and hope that it embraces this little boutique of mine the way I have embraced it.
