Hello, everyone! In the midst of the whirlwind promotion for his new book, Advanced Style, our good friend, Ari Seth Cohen, recently stopped by our shop, Off Broadway Boutique, along with New York Social Diary's Blair Sobol. After being introduced as one of his muses, Lynn Dell invited Ms. Sobol into our world of enchanting glamour and the result was simply magical. In turn, she wrote a wonderful article that captured Lynn's motto for living – dressing for the theatre of your life!

Hello, everyone! This past Friday was the most wonderful day, as we had the pleasure of treating Lynn Dell's grandson, Boaz's, class to a grand Off Broadway Boutique tour. Visiting from the Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, these bright second graders arrived at our shop to learn all about textiles. This was also a great opportunity to show the kids the different fabrics and to discover what you create out of them.
We invited the class into the design studio, where they saw how we cut fabric and how we custom-make our garments. In addition, we showed them how we merchandise the store and explained the concept of price structure and markup to them. We also explained to them how we managed a successful business like Off Broadway Boutique for 41 years. The most exciting part was answering all the kids' questions, as they had plenty of good ones about how clothing fit and how we custom made them for our clients.
Although we have had plenty of experience in lecturing college students and providing tours to visitors, we were a bit intimidated in facing an entire second-grade class. Luckily, we had nothing to fear, as we were blessed to host some of the brightest children that we have ever met. As a parting gift, Lynn gave every kid a silk dupioni swatch (a fabric that we use to make our exclusive jackets with) and a kosher sugar cookie. Everyone – including Lynn's grandson, Boaz – was impressed with the Off Broadway Boutique experience, which brought us much joy!
Hello, everyone! One of the things that we appreciate are the beautiful shapes and sizes thatwe see everywhere, as it is a major inspiration behind the fashionable clothes that we sell as a part of our collection. It is precisely why Lynn Dell jumped at the invitation to shoot an episode of the hot reality show, Curvy Girls, at our store, Off Broadway Boutique, last night, as we wanted to be a part of something that celebrates the magnificence of plus size beauty.
Although Curvy Girls generally focuses on the lives of 4 plus size models in New York, producers Sarah Pelkey and Sandy Jean Philippe, specifically chose Lynn to be a judge at the Evolution of Curves casting call that was staged at our shop. Absolutely flattered to be on the panel with the lovely Sandy, as well as her colleague, Vanessa, she was determined to help them find someone that fit the description of fun, fashionable, and fabulous for their upcoming Florida fashion show.
By the time we were ready to tape around 7 in the evening, there were 7-8 models waiting outside the boutique for their shot for a spot in the show. Everything went smoothly as these contestants put their best face forward while competing in a dance segment. Although it took us about two hours in total for Sandy, Vanessa, and Lynn to make their decision and to tape the entire casting call, it was a very interesting experience that we would love to do again.
Produced by Stage 3 Productions as the brainchild of producers, Sarah Pelkey and Sandy Jean Philippe, Curvy Girls airs on the nuvoTV network. We will definitely keep you posted on when our episode will air once we find out more information.
Although Lynn Dell adores attending trade shows and finding plenty of one of a kind fashion and jewelry pieces, it is quite a hassle to carry the weight around. As useful as a backpack or tote can be, it always adds strain to her back and shoulders. This is why she is so grateful to have recently discovered the PurseN weekender duffle bag.
A handy travel duffle bag whose wheels and handle make it easy to drag around, it was such a lifesaver for her during her trade show travels. Not only did Lynn no longer have to carry any weight on her back and shoulders, this bag gave her plenty of room to carry all of the clothing, accessories, and jewelry that she picked up from every show for our shop. We are so thrilled with this great find that we are definitely going to sell these at Off Broadway Boutique so that both shoppers and travelers can carry their things and move around.
In turn, we will definitely keep everyone posted on when the fabulous PurseN weekender duffle bag will arrive in our shop.
