Hey ya’ll. This will be brief but I wanted to give a quick shout out to an old friend from elementary school, Allie Mannon. Four years ago today, she had a dream and opened up her adorable little boutique called “Hey Helen” just off Main Street in her one stoplight town. For those from the NRV, this is old news, but I did want to introduce all my Charlotte friends to her amazing shop.
She didn’t know I was coming or that I would have my camera, but I’m thankful she let me capture a few photos anyway. Allie is over 30 weeks pregnant with her fourth and looks absolutely amazing!
Hey Helen is beautiful and reminds me of the perfect blend of Anthropologie, Free People and Altr’d State. In fact, Allie told me that most of the brands she sells can also be found at Altar’d State but without all the markup! If you’re ever near her adorable town of Floyd or want to shop online, go follow her @heyhelen on Instagram or like her page on Facebook. Oh, and did I mention most of her stuff sells for under $50! Yep, it really is that good.
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this mom boss who followed her dream and share the love for her store! You’ll be looking so good you’ll be sure to thank me later.
P.S. My parents have a suite on Air BnB within walking distance of her store, so if you’re ever in search of a new small town to check out, add Floyd to your list. They have a Friday night jamboree and lots of great places to hike and little shops to explore. It is not to be missed and only 2 1/2 hours from Charlotte!
Ya’ll come back now, you hear? 😉
