Jolie Occasions is moving--but not far! We’re excited to announce that Jolie will relocate across the street to 867 North High St at the end of this month. At this new location, Jolie will have three times the space the current shop offers. That means more of all the things that make Jolie great, more inventory, more dressing rooms, and more space for Jolie Girls to gather!
Stephanie opened the original Jolie storefront in August 2017 in the heart of the vibrant Short North neighborhood. Jolie offers clothes and accessories that exemplify a style of feminine flair, all at an affordable price point so shoppers can add a bit of zest to their wardrobes without breaking the bank. When you walk in the front door of Jolie, you’re greeted by girly colors and a warm atmosphere, with staple clothing pieces perfect for work and play and a wide selection of accessories to add a little sparkle to your look. That same ambiance, described by Stephanie as “whimsical, bright, and fun,” will transfer over to the new location across the street.
The new space will allow Jolie to greatly expand the amount of inventory available for Short North and online shoppers. The store will also incorporate more dressing rooms and comfortable seating, so Jolie shoppers can really make their shopping excursions a social experience. The extra space will allow for plentiful events that weren’t possible in Jolie original retail space across the street, thus allowing attendees and Jolie shoppers alike to get to know other women and neighbors who similarly love feminine style.
When looking for a new and bigger location, staying in the Short North was mandatory for Jolie. The Short North is a hub for small businesses and their unique mindsets, with yummy restaurants, thriving bars, and adorable shops dotting the storefronts down High Street. “It is vibrant, fun, always changing and most importantly, always growing,” explained Jolie owner Stephanie. “I love each of the businesses that make up this area and am beyond lucky to be a part of it!” The businesses in the Short North have a uniquely supportive relationship of one another - it’s never surprising to see local bakery Short North Piece of Cake dropping sweets off to the shop or Arch City Tavern providing hungry workers with post-shift fries.
Jolie Occasions is moving into 867 North High St, Columbus, Ohio 43215 at the end of May. The location was previously occupied by local clothing retailer Clothe Ohio, who are excited to take their brand fully online. Stay tuned for sneak peeks of the new space and details about exciting upcoming events!
