Our Big Adventure
Posted on 29 May 2016
The secret is out! We have been patiently waiting for May 30, 2016 so we could finally tell everyone what we've been working on for the last few months! But... plot twist: we couldn't wait any longer! We opened a day early, making Elysian's official birthday May 29, 2016.
The adventure started with a FaceTime call on January 3, 2016 where Sarah and Loghin got together virtually to create a business plan for what would soon become Elysian Outfitters. Opening a boutique has always been a dream of Loghin's. She has long been passionate about fashion and sales and couldn't wait to combine the two to open her own store. Sarah on the other hand, while she does love online shopping, did not always have this as a plan. Once the idea of starting our own business got brought up one day while catching up, it was a no-brainer. Having been friends since middle school, we know each other's strengths and weaknesses and figured out how to utilize them to make this all happen.
There were many days spent Pinteresting ideas, conferencing over video chat, reading posts about all of the things we needed to do, and even a couple of trips to Home Depot to construct some DIY clothing racks. Planning this whole adventure has been crazy to say the least. Loghin was always busy at work with her other two jobs and Sarah was in the final semester of her senior year of college. Needless to say, there were many late nights involved, but the dream is finally a reality and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you all!
We hope you love the Elysian clothes as much as we do, and stay tuned for many more exciting surprises!
