About A. Michele

Front Door 

One of the many dreams I had was owning an eclectic women’s boutique.  It was my belief that there was an opportunity to provide the “socially, savvy and active woman” with a fun and hip shopping experience.  I wanted to offer “fashion forward finds” that appeal to a broad audience.  So, armed with my dream, love of fashion and the responsibility of being a wife and mother of 2 year old twins I opened A. Michele in September 2006. 

A. Michele is more than a store, it is an experience.  The comfortable environment has been designed with a creative edge that is funky and comfy.

I believe everyone has a sense of style, you just have to find it within.  Not all trends work for everyone.  However, you can pick up little morsels from time to time.  Whether it be animal print accessories, a chic pair of denim, a fabulous handbag in a bold color or an amazing pair of shoes. “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.  Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”  -  Coco Chanel …..That is the premise upon which A. Michele is based.

On a personal note, my husband Mike & I have been married 9 years.  I would not be here if it wasn’t for his unconditional love, guidance, inspiration and support.  When we are not reaching for the stars, we are spending time with our now 5 year old twins Alexander & Isabella.  We reside in Woodbury, Minnesota and love to wine & dine with our friends.

A. Michele’s success is based on the love, support and belief from our family and friend’s.  Again, I would not be here if it wasn’t for their advice, guidance and influence.  I will be eternally grateful to all who believed in me and my vision. 

I have had to trust my instincts, follow my passion and visualize my dreams.  It has been very rewarding, fulfilling, enjoyable and extremely scary!

I love to support other women who are starting out or continuing their dream.  Whether it be a jewelry designer, clothing designer or another store owner.  I believe we can all benefit from each other and help each other reach our goals.  It is my belief what comes around goes around and to treat people with the kindness and respect they deserve.  Karma is a good thing.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you will come back to follow my journey.

    Going to A-Michele is more than just “shopping,” it’s an experience! From the friendly greeting at the door, to the beautiful displays of clothing & accessories, to the yummy snacks & refreshments, it’s sure to be a day brightener! My A-Michele clothes are definitely the ones I get compliments for when I wear them!

    A. Michele boutique is truly one of a kind shopping experience! Amy has always had
    an eye for style and glamour. The atmosphere at A. michele is fun, sexy, and no pressure. It never fails, I always get asked where my clothes came from when I’m wearing something from A. Michele’s boutique.

    Amy, I admire you in so many ways, and I’m so proud of you!!
