The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce celebrated the grand opening of Love, JUDE Clothing & Accessories with a ribbon cutting! The new boutique is located at 14906 US-98 in Magnolia Springs, AL. They also have a mobile boutique truck available to book for parties and festivals.
Love, JUDE Clothing & Accessories has officially opened their new 2,600-square-foot flagship store nestled in historic Magnolia Springs, Ala., comfortably situated between Fairhope, Ala. and Alabama’s beaches. With their new flagship location, founders Judy “Jude” Collins and Carrie O’Connor have designed a welcoming and relaxing space that feels like a breath of fresh air.
Beautifully decorated and easy to navigate, the store features a working fireplace with comfortable seating for customers who want to linger over a glass of wine and good conversation, as well as a kitchen overlooking an outdoor patio for catered group events. Natural light flows throughout the space including the boutique's large, custom-built dressing rooms.
Conveniently located at 14906 US Highway 98, the new boutique offers a mix of clothing, jewelry, shoes, resortwear, purses, athleisure wear, candles, gifts and more. With an emphasis on versatile go-to pieces, the Love, JUDE collection features soft, supple fabrics with simple lines and flattering cuts that customers will reach for again and again.
The new boutique fits seamlessly into the founders’ ethos: to value connection over transaction, and to create a true sense of community whether customers visit them in-person at the store, online at lovejudeclothing.com, or at pop-up locations in their mobile boutique. Wherever they go, they want their customers to feel valued, appreciated and seen.
Love, JUDE founders, Carrie and Judy are lifelong friends who met in high school after moving to the same small, rural Alabama town. When they hit their mid-40s, they began noticing a hole in the market as they struggled to find flattering, go-to clothing pieces that fit their style and stage of life. They scoured trendy boutiques, online stores, and social media, but rarely found clothes they were excited to wear professionally or socially. In 2022, after speaking with scores of other women in the same predicament, they decided to open Love, JUDE Clothing & Accessories to solve this seemingly universal problem and help meet the needs of women with people to meet, places to go, and nothing to wear.
