Michelle Mickelson launched an online boutique last fall after being laid off due to the pandemic. Shop Texas Boutique will hold a “Christmas in July”-themed grand opening for its new storefront July 31 at 8525 Jackrabbit Road, Ste. N, Houston, from 4-7 p.m.
After the grand opening, the store will be open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., but shopping by appointment will also be available for individuals and small groups. Mickelson said the boutique will feature monthly events with refreshments and special sales as well as birthday parties.
