DOWNTOWN NAPERVILLE WELCOMES LONDON SKYE
London Skye, a new independently-owned boutique now open on Water Street in Downtown Naperville celebrated its Grand Opening last month, beginning with a ribbon cutting with the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce. London Skye offers trendy contemporary women's and men's clothing at approachable prices, bringing one-of-a-kind pieces and international brands to the fashion-forward customer. Owner Joellen Elam has used her 19 years of advertising and fashion experience garnered from influential positions working on such brands as LEVI'S, William-Sonoma, Nordstrom, Nicole Miller, and Evereve to hone a boutique with a decidedly English vibe.
Elam lived two years in London prior to moving back to the states and settling in the western suburbs of Chicago. London Skye's interior reflects hints of British and equestrian charm, the vibe is highly attentive and family friendly. “I think locals and travelers alike are seeking everyday casual styles and evening out clothing that is unique, beautiful but attainable,” she says. “With the Hotel Indigo, Elements events space, 64 Wine Bar and the eclectic collection of restaurants at Water Street, this felt like the perfect spot for London Skye.”
London Skye features premium denim, shirts and tops, dresses, shoes, accessories and gifts, in a fun atmosphere with personable stylists to help you find the right look for you. “Women love the fashion-forward contemporary styles available in Downtown Naperville, but what about trendy looks for their husbands and boyfriends? London Skye will compliment the classic and traditional men’s clothing available in Naperville with prices everyone can enjoy,” Elam says.
Elam has two daughters, who have lent their respective middle names to the name of the store. “Naperville is style-conscious and family friendly at the same time, she says. “ I fell in love with the Downtown, it’s charming and brings out both Napervillians and out-of-towners looking for a unique shopping experience. We’re also looking forward to serving visitors in to see family, for weddings, and all the wonderful events the community has to offer.”
Water Street is Downtown Naperville’s newest shop, dine and stay destination featuring the 158- room Hotel Indigo, Elements Events, Bien Truche, Blue Sushi Saki Grill, 64- A Wine Bar, and Southern Tide clothiers. Coming before year end are Solaia Spa and Sparrow Coffee Roasters’ first café. A Riverwalk, art installations, plaza and fountain attract strollers throughout the day and evening. The 520-space on-site parking garage ensures easy access for visitors. For information on London Skye visit LondonSkye.com.
