AMY BROWN OF EVELYN JANE BOUTIQUE AND SWEET JANE BOUTIQUE IN DOWNERS GROVE SHARES WHAT SHE LOVES LOCALLY DURING THE SUMMER

DOWNERS GROVE–Amy has always possessed an entrepreneurial spirit with an endless pursuit to answer the question by Mary Oliver, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?


Well, her creative, humble, and persistent attitude led her from Downers Grove to Colorado for a decade where she met her husband, Keith and wooed him back to the Midwest to be near family, and raise their son, Ryan (now 14).


Next, her go-getter persona subsequently launched two two boutiques in downtown Downers Grove- Evelyn Jane and Sweet Jane. The first focusing on jewelry, women’s accessories, candles, and other unique gifts; and the second specializing in gifts for babies and new/expecting mothers.

“I lead all of the buying and creative direction, as well as merchandising,” Amy shares. “I also love connecting with customers and being part of the day-to-day flow.”


Giving back is second nature for Amy and she not only sponsors a wide variety of local nonprofits, but also participated in a mother/son service trip to El Salvador with Light of Love Ministry.


Weekends are filled with watching Ryan play sports with St. Mary of Gostyn. Amy also enjoys thrifting and always looks forward to seeing loved ones in Colorado to hike, ski, and of course support the local breweries.
