As the owner, Jackie continues to focus on nurturing and growing this local family-owned business which has been in operation since 1997. Celebrating the store’s 25 anniversary last fall was quite a milestone – especially in todays volatile small business market. However, being voted the best Women's Clothing Boutique in Victoria by the readers of Black Press for now 5 consecutive years, makes her not only incredibly proud but extremely appreciative of her very loyal customers. Her favorite motto to live and work by– “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Treat one’s staff like they’re #1 and they will do the same to your customers. On a personal note, she is about to become a grandma for the first time this Spring, which is pretty darn exciting.
Recently, she and her husband had the opportunity to travel as well as take a cruise- something she has been so looking forward to since the pandemic. In the spring of 2023, she will be cruising again but this time with her Granddaughter to celebrate her graduation (postponed by Covid 3 years ago). This will be a very exciting trip as both her daughters and her sisters will be joining them. Plus, a new addition to our family this year keeps the excitement at an all-time high. Yes, Linda will be a Great Grandma. Happily, work always keeps her busy and she always welcomes the opportunity to show everyone how amazing the new fashions look to all our customers that pop into the store.
Judy fully retired from the corporate legal field in 2020. After enjoying some travel time and much needed R&R she came to decide it was time for a change and with her love of fashion, this was the perfect fit. Since joining Just for You Fashions, Judy has learned a lot about the world of French Dressing jeans along with our numerous other fashion lines and how much fun putting pieces together can be to get a look that suits you. Judy is always happy to assist any of our loyal and brand-new customers. When not at the shop, she likes to read mystery books, play cards, and do word puzzles as well as spend lots of time with her family especially the grandchildren.
Carolyn fills her days as a caregiver for seniors, spending time with family and going on outdoor adventures. She has a background in women’s fashion management and fine art. Carolyn joined the team in the Spring of 2022 because she missed working in women’s fashion, something we feel she excels in as she loves it so much. Connecting with women and helping them chose clothing that makes them feel comfortable and confident is very important to her. “Fashion should be fun! If you don’t like shopping for clothes come see us and we’ll make it fun!”
Our newest team member is a true Victorian as she has lived here all her life. She is especially passionate about wildflowers so her love of taking long walks and photographing nature is what she truly enjoys. Reading, writing, knitting, sewing, and gardening, are all hobbies but her favourite activity is the simple pleasure of hanging out with her grandchildren. She has significant experience working with older adults therefore being at the shop helping customers gives her great pleasure knowing she just might have made someone’s day by finding the perfect piece or complete ensemble.
