Hey gf,
I’m Nicole, owner/creator of April Layne Boutique. Welcome to my happy corner of the internet. I’m so glad you’re here.
I have always loved fashion and decided in high school, I one day wanted to have my own clothing store (really I’ve been imagining this business goal since I was a little girl.)
I attended Iowa State University (go Cyclones!) and earned my undergrad degree in Apparel Merchandising and Design.  Additionally, I spent a summer studying at the London College of Fashion. I graduated college in May 2020 (boom! right in the middle of the pandemic.)  I moved back in with my parents and spent the following year working for two boutiques under the direction of Bruce and Brenda D., while simultaneously working towards a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship from Oklahoma State University. And thennn… I got engaged to the love of my life and moved with him to Savannah, GA.
And now I am officially launched!!
I would like to say THANK YOU.  I appreciate your support and hope you will be satisfied with every aspect encompassing your April Layne Boutique shopping experience.
