In case you haven’t heard of it, there is a new boutique in downtown State College that has replaced the Ethereal Boutique as the owners have moved.
I was wondering what kind of store would move in, and when I heard that this place was called Lock Boutique, I immediately wanted to check it out.
I wanted to get a sense of the overall feel of the place – the aesthetics, the types of clothing, and of course the prices and customer service.
After eating a bagel from Irving’s, I walked over and saw it for myself. When I went inside, I was really surprised by the high degree of perfection.
The scent of fresh flowers, yes, the scent of fresh flowers, permeated the hallway, and all the colors of the clothes created a cozy atmosphere.
When I opened the door the owner greeted me with the best smile and gave me the nicest introduction I have ever had. She welcomed me and told me to come to her with any of her questions.
The interior was filled with what I call a “clean aesthetic”. The decorations were all pink, although the shelves, stands and walls are all white. I really liked the girly atmosphere. It was all so chic.
I took it all in, going around the store to get a sense of the atmosphere. Then I dove into the clothes rack.
If you need sunglasses, we have a whole shelf of different styles and colors. We had necklaces, bracelets and earring stands, all of which were very pretty.
The store even has hints of clutch bags, coin bags, and accessories from Penn State University, which I thought would work well to attract students and parents.
Each outfit was unique and the coordination possibilities were endless. I’m obsessed with glittery dresses, go-out tops, jeans, leather pants, graphic tees, and sweaters.
There was also a bridal section with bridal accessories such as bohemian-style wedding dresses, bachelorette dresses, hair clips, bridal emergency kits, and cute clutches.
As I watched this entire section, I found myself dreaming about my future wedding. It’s well-organized and you’ll get lost in a sea of white and champagne colors in no time.
Don’t get me started in the locker room. I can’t get over them. It was spacious, and a full-length mirror tightened the whole space. I could do a fashion show all day long.
My absolute favorite part was the hint of pink around the store. As you can see, I have pink as my ‘heart’.
However, I have one complaint. The price was too high in my opinion.
We don’t delve too much into the topic of money, but one of the dresses we pulled off the rack was over $100.
If I wasn’t a broke college student, I probably would have bought it — but now I can’t afford it.
So, in addition to some pricey pieces, I give Lock Boutique a 9/10. It was very clean, aesthetically pleasing, and the clothes were adorable. absolutely. I want to hold many fashion shows here.
Whenever you’re in the mood to spend some money, be sure to head over to Lock Boutique and check it out. I’m sure you’ll like it.
