When asked about Maggie, here’s what Lyn, owner of Urban Pearl, had to say:
Maggie has been an integral part of the growth and success of Urban Pearl since she came on board my ‘one man team’ in late 2014. I actually was considering discontinuing the mobile boutique business, but she gave it a boost of energy that fall. Maggie has a style all her own which is an immense help when we go on our shopping trips as well as when she works with customers in the shop. Unique style and independent thinking are a must in this business! In addition to style, she brings a tech savvy approach to the business. We’re looking forward to exploring the option of Maggie opening a franchise store for Urban Pearl in Columbia, Md in 2018!

Back to school season is here. What are some of your favorite trends and how will you help the Urban Pearl customers find a fitting style for back to school?
Embroidery is on sweaters, jackets, shorts and there’s tons of velvet. My favorite is taking something simple and adding a beautiful embroidery to it. I like finding pieces that will help you transition from season to season. I also like more fitted looks, styles have have been moving from flowing to fitted and I think it’s more flattering.
