CHINA GROVE — Lisa and Ken Deal have opened a new women’s boutique in China Grove.

Embellish Boutique at 101 N Main St. will host a grand opening and free open house from 1 to 4 p.m. today with door prizes, refreshments and specials.

Regular hours will be 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Embellish sells boutique-style clothing, accessories, shoes, handbags, wallets and jewelry, as well as a speciality gift section, makeup and bodywraps.

Lisa Deal said she will only order a few pieces of each clothing item, “so people don’t see themselves.”

She bought her inventory at markets in New York and Atlanta.

“I hear people say I have New York style, and I tell them at hometown prices,” she said.

Deal has operated a weight-loss business in Mooresville but wanted to be closer to home and fill a need in China Grove.

“People came to me and asked for this,” she said.

Daughter Kendra Owens will manage the shop. The family completed the renovations to the interior.

The location formerly housed a bookstore.
