Member of the Month – September 2020
Southern Julep Boutique is a father-daughter team owned & operated by Phil & Julie Stanton. At Southern Julep, you will find the latest trends in boutique apparel, shoes, accessories, jewelry, gifts and more! Phil & Julie saw a need for affordable, quality clothing and an inviting atmosphere for women to shop at in Eden, NC. They followed God's calling as well as a long time dream of theirs and took a huge leap of faith to open Southern Julep Boutique in July 2019. The name Southern Julep came to be because that is exactly what the owners are - Southern and Julie + Phillip = Julep.
Over the past year, their little biz has grown tremendously with the help of social media and a website, carrying them through the COVID pandemic. With a tiny yet mighty brick & mortar on Washington St. and a fast-growing online presence, they have since added fit models and interns into their work family. They have even tripled their apparel lines to a more diverse selection and inclusive to all sizes. This growth has gained them recognition and they were recently honored with the 2020 Readers' Choice award for the #1 Women's Apparel Store in Rockingham County.
They have also had the opportunity to do more than just sell clothes. They feel it is important to create relationships with the community and companies that are socially responsible. They have participated in many fundraisers such as Operation Underground Railroad, domestic violence, donating to fire victims and more. We also partner with brands that give back such as Puppie Love that donates to animal rescues and shelters, LippyClip which provides jobs for women who need to work from home. They are also active members of the Eden Chamber of Commerce and the downtown merchants' association.
They would love for you to come visit them sometime to see what Southern Julep is all about. 711 Washington St. Downtown Eden - Mon-Fri 11-6pm and 11-4pm on Saturdays
