Designer Eco-Friendly Boutique Celebrates with Door Prizes, Drawings for Free Merchandise

by Jennie Acklin

As the plans unfold for the upcoming Grand Opening at Nouriche, new door prize items are being added to the list daily. Vendors have been excited about sending in samples of new products, and Jess Maynard, manager of Nouriche, has been working hard to plan a fun celebration.

Wine tastings are scheduled throughout the day on Saturday, June 15, courtesy of Shannon Carscallen of E-ville Spirits & Wine. Katy’s Cafe will be serving delicious appetizers. And a grand prize drawing that you won’t want to miss is in the works. The fun goes from 10 a.m.–7 p.m.

Door prizes include scarves from Yala, eco-friendly T-shirts from Blue Canoe, bags from Yummie Tummie and Baggu, a gift basket from the Soap Rox Company, clothing from Be Present Yoga Wear, and ReWined Candles are just a few of the items.

Maynard encourages customers to bring their pampered pooches and find the right doggie accessories from Cycle Dog (collars and leashes made from reclaimed bicycle tubes) and Dog Collar Fancy (bling for your pooch).

Nouriche opened its doors just two months ago in April. Located at 14 Washington St. in Ellicottville, the boutique and giftware shop offers eco-friendly and fair trade clothing and accessories.

The goal of the store’s owners was to offer basic items that everyone shops for on a regular basis but cannot find locally. Exclusive styles without high “boutique” prices form the core of their philosophy.

Nouriche’s styles range from workout casual to resort casual chic, footwear and bags, along with cool gifts and canine accessories — all tagged as “refreshingly affordable for every age, every price range and every size.”

And when you want to indulge, CosaBella Italian lingerie can be found in the boutique, as well as Laga handbags, which have been featured on Oprah and are sported by high profile celebs.

Yala Dream sacks (bamboo sheets and pillows) are available for those who seek a comfortable and nurturing night’s sleep between eco-friendly sheets. Yala also makes lovely tops and dresses. You’ll fall in love with the feel of bamboo clothing — so soft and the colors are vibrant and fun.

“Our boutique is ever evolving as people ask for new items or brands,” said Maynard. “We want to hear from our customers. What are you looking for? And what can’t you find locally, and we’ll try hard to bring it in.”

Even though Nouriche clothing and accessories primarily target women, the shop does offer a few different items for the men in your world, too.

You’ll feel welcome and pampered when walking through the doors, and Maynard warmly invites you to spend a little time exploring, sampling and indulging at their Grand Opening.
