Our Story

Our Story

The Boutique has been a Charleston institution since its founding in the mid 1950s. Since then, it has been passed down through family and friends. Throughout its rich history it has remained rooted in Southern tradition, while also reflecting the unique personality of each owner as it has evolved into the shop it is today.

Current owner, Lois Daughtridge, views her role as a curator, seeking the perfect pairings between her finds, and the needs of her clientele. And she cannot envision doing her job well, without the competent assistance of her daughter, Lois Anne, and her faithful companion Ivy.

Home Services

We absolutely adore providing home services to our locals. Services include linen assessments and procuring replacement pieces for bedding and towels which may have seen better days. Lois will personally bring fabric swatches, trim options, and thread samples to your home, and help you design the perfect bedding and towel combination to achieve a luxurious and serene living space for your master bedroom, bathroom and guest rooms. This is accomplished with our bespoke lines. We help you coordinate trims, finishes and embroidery with your already existing decor, (such as drapes, wallpaper and paint). This provides a finished and custom look that cannot be accomplished without this personal attention to detail.
