Pam Liebling Mullaney was a mom of three and long-time serious fashionista when she decided to quit her job in the corporate world to spend more time with her family and find a job she could do from home.
The result is Dress, a consignment boutique featuring designer clothes in Glenwood South near downtown Raleigh. The markdowns allow Pam to keep herself in designer duds and help the rest of Raleigh with low-cost new and gently used clothes. The store offers both consignment pieces and overstocks, which have never been worn.
Less than a year old, the store has had so much success it expanded this month.
"It was a good time to move into this business," she told me.
"Boutique" always makes me wonder if the pieces are really affordable. But there are some great prices here, including a rack where everything is $15 or less. Prices generally range between $10 and $60. I told Pam to expect me when the baby weight comes off.
