Born and raised in the vibrant city of Denver, Colorado, Lezli Salz-Bradley embarked on a journey that would ignite her passion for fashion. Growing up on Willow St., Lezli's love for style and design flourished, setting the stage for her remarkable career in the fashion industry.
Lezli soon met her husband Scott in the bustling state of New Jersey. Eager to make her mark on the East Coast fashion scene, Lezli seized the opportunity and launched her career in the heart of New York City's fashion district. Immersed in the industry's fast-paced environment, she honed her skills and gained invaluable knowledge about the intricacies of the business.
Throughout her journey, Lezli found an extraordinary mentor and confidante in Robyn, the visionary owner of Rebel in Denver, CO. Under Robyn's guidance, Lezli developed a deeper understanding of the art of styling and the transformative power of fashion. Inspired by her experiences, Lezli set her sights on a bold vision—to bring the same high fashion found in the city to the suburban women of New Jersey.
In 1993, Lezli's dream became a reality as she proudly opened the doors of her first boutique in Summit, New Jersey. The store became an instant sensation and a beloved fixture of downtown Summit, capturing the hearts of fashion-forward women in the area. Building upon her success, Lezli expanded her empire and opened a second location in Morristown, New Jersey, in 2010, solidifying her presence as a pioneer of bringing boutique shopping to the suburbs.
Lezli's entrepreneurial spirit and unwavering dedication to her craft led her to become one of the first to curate a truly unique shopping experience. Every week, she traverses the bustling streets of New York City and explores the dynamic LA market, handpicking exquisite pieces to grace the racks of both her boutiques. Ensuring an ever-changing selection, new arrivals grace the stores daily, guaranteeing that customers will never encounter the same exact clothing twice.
With an eye for fashion that seamlessly blends the latest trends with her customers' personal style, Lezli has cultivated a curated look and feel within her boutiques. The result is a timeless and classic aesthetic that caters to the modern woman who seeks both sophistication and self-expression. Always on the hunt for emerging designers, Lezli continuously seeks to bring fresh perspectives and innovative designs to her discerning clientele.
Beyond her contributions to the fashion landscape, Lezli is deeply committed to being a positive force within the community. As an integral small business in two New Jersey towns, she dedicates her time, resources, and donates to organizations such as Dress For Success and the local food pantry, knowing the importance of uplifting and empowering those both inside and outside of the fashion world.
At Willow St., customer service reigns supreme. Lezli has assembled a team of dedicated stylists who share her passion for helping women look and feel their best. With personalized attention and expert guidance, every customer is treated like a cherished friend, ensuring they leave the boutique feeling confident and beautiful.
