All Eyes Are on Featured Member Lynn Dell

By Staff

Can you see yourself being in the same profession for over 40 years? MeetLynn Dell the owner of Off Broadway Boutique located in New York, NY  

Fab40:Describe how you started out in your career field. Did you attend college immediately following high school?
Lynn:We wanted to create a space for the fabulous fortysomething femme to shop in and believed that unique designs and unmistakable glamour were attributes that any woman deserved.  Thus, we launched Off Broadway Boutique on the Upper West SIde of New York over 40 years ago.  

Fab40:Are you currently working in the same profession you intended to when starting your career path or has it taken you in another direction and what is your current profession?
Lynn:For over 40 years, our boutique has been a show-stopper on New York's Upper West Side because we unabashedly sell one thing: Glamour! Wherever you live, play, work or travel our look is unmistakable. It says you're the most exciting woman in the room.        

Fab40:During our careers, there are always challenges we are faced with that may or may not be gender related. I would like to know the most significant challenges you have been faced throughout your career or are facing now, and how you overcame them or plan to overcome them.
Lynn:Our biggest challenge has been to maintain our niche of selling to 40+ women, since mainstream fashion is often marketed to a younger demographic.  We've overcome this by staying true to our original objective while adapting with the times through communicating online, via telephone, and in person.  

Fab40:What keeps you from giving up along the way when faced with tough challenges or let downs? Where did you find the strength or desire to keep pushing forward?
Lynn: We find inspiration through the countless women who leave our store extremely satisfied with what piece we've chosen for them or what outfit we've assembled together.  That lets us know that Off Broadway Boutique is not making our bold statement in vain.  

Fab40:What are your accomplishments you are most proud of and why?
Lynn: We're most proud of being able to withstand the changing style trends while providing a fashion haven for 40+ women who aspire to look fabulous.

Fab40:Do you have a support system surrounding you throughout your career climbing and if so, who are they and how did/do they help you?
Lynn:We consider our clients to be our support system, for we owe all our success to them.  They are very loyal to us, thus we thank them by providing them with the best service in New York City.        

Fab40:What do you attribute your success to?
Lynn:Our success is attrributed to fulfilling our customers' style desires for drama, color, and originality in their wardrobe.  

Fab40:Has goal setting been a key component to your success and why?
Lynn:Setting goals has contributed to a major part of our success, for Off Broadway Boutique has never been a shop that remains idle when it comes to enticing their customers.  

Fab40:In helping yourself achieve career goals, do you perform any type of mediation, relaxation or affirmations? If so, what has your experience been in relation to helping you accomplish your professional and personal goals?
Lynn:A simple affirmation works in securing Off Broadway Boutique's lasting success: live your life to the absolute fullest.

  

Fab40:Have you been a mentor to others?
Lynn:We have mentored many women who've wanted a space to express their dynamic personality through fashion.  In encouraging women over 40+ to live fashionably out loud, we provide them with the confidence to do whatever their heart desires.  

Fab40:What is your experience with networking and do you feel it is important? If so why or why not? Please describe any positive or negative experiences you may have had.
Lynn:Our experience in networking has been nothing but positive.  We've had the pleasure of meeting diverse people who share the common need to look and feel their very best.  That's a quality that we believe that everyone should enjoy - feeling great.        

Fab40:What do you feel are the essentials to career climbing and why?
Lynn:In our opinion, we believe in one golden rule when it comes to career climbing: You get one chance around, so go for it.        

Fab40:Where do you see yourself in your career in 5 or 10 years and how do you plan on getting there?
Lynn:In five years, we anticipate becoming a major fashion force for 40+ women while being entirely accessible on the Internet.  

Fab40:Are you involved in any non-profit organizations as a volunteer or board member? If so, which charity and why did you choose that particular charity? What role do you have in supporting them?
Lynn:We are involved in Broadway Cares, for a great deal of our clientele are fabulous women and famous celebrities from film, stage, television and opera who need our support in the Arts.              

                      

Fab40:Anything else you would like to add?
Lynn:We're out to make a statement for you in day wear, evening wear, sportswear and every other kind of wear.  Most importantly, we want our clothes to have that certain attitude. That "je ne sais quoi" that makes every woman, large or small, young or ageless, look gorgeous.
