Casual summer style can be challenging for fashion-minded women, especially here in our mountain communities. The typical shorts and t-shirt don’t feel stylish enough, and dresses can easily feel overdressed or uncomfortable. If you’re looking for functional and easy to style outfits, items that can be mixed and matched, something creative and original, and the accessories to finish your look– you’ll find your favorite clothing combinations– just down the road a piece– at Daisy Boutique!
Known as “The First Mountain City,” Jasper, Georgia is about an hour outside of Atlanta and is one of the most popular summer destinations in north Georgia; especially for folks looking to enjoy an authentic mountain experience with a small-town atmosphere, whether it’s for a day trip or an extended vacation. Also known as The Marble Capital of Georgia, Jasper is home to cozy restaurants, landmarks and other attractions that can only be found in this quaint part of the world. Women love beautiful things, and they love to find a fashionable place to shop close to home or while on their perfect mountain vacation.
One such shop that is a must-see stop for lovers of fashion and design is Daisy Boutique, owned and operated by entrepreneur Peggy Rabin for more than 15 years.
Rabin’s concentration into all things couture began at an early age as a teenager and continued into her adult years as a fashion representative at the Atlanta Apparel Mart. It was during a trip to Jasper with her husband in 1997 that she fell in love with the mountain city, eventually buying a home in the area before opening Daisy Boutique’s predecessor, Daisy Shoes in 2003. After seeing the demand for other types of clothing, Peggy re-branded her idea into the well-rounded store that it is today.
Specializing in fashion-forward women’s clothing that has been described as “practical with an edge,” there’s a good chance that you’ll find clothing and designs at Daisy Boutique that you haven’t seen anywhere else. “My customers like knowing that they probably won’t see their outfit on someone else in the same room. We only offer four to six pieces per style,” Peggy notes. “After all, Jasper is a small town.”
Though Daisy Boutique caters to women of a certain age, there’s something for everyone at this fabulous shop – from trendy outfits for twenty-somethings – to tasteful designs for women in their 30’s and beyond. Clothing sizes may vary from 2 to 16, however many items
can be special ordered if they’re not in stock when you visit.
With brands like Free People, Tribal Sportwear, Z Supply, Dear John, Jag Jeans, and many others, there’s no shortage of clothing options to choose from. In addition to name brand clothing, you can also find shoes, and we all love shoes! Daisy’s carries well known shoe brands like Sorel, Merrell, Born and OTBT to name a few, all with style and comfort in mind.
Not sure what’s right for you? Ask Peggy for her advice – she makes shopping fun and will help you find what fits you best! In fact, if you’re looking for a great summertime shirt, skirt, shorts or pair of sandals, Daisy Boutique has a great selection of lightweight clothing options that feel great on your body and look even better when you’re wearing them around town.
Peggy’s customers are often curious about her business name. Is it named after a grandmother, mother, or daughter? None of the above says Peggy. “I named Daisy Boutique after a golden retriever. When we signed the lease for the store, the landlord owned this dog named Daisy. I thought it was such a cute name that I asked him if it would be okay to name the store after his dog. The name ‘Daisy’ has been a gift in branding the store. It works!” Over fifteen years later, Peggy is still going strong and hasn’t looked back.
If you and your friends are looking for a high-end boutique in a stress-free setting central to all of the exciting things to see and do in north Georgia, you’ve found the right place.
