11/04/2021

Shopping from small businesses, and choosing handmade and secondhand gifting has never felt more important than it does this year. And that’s why shopping at Darling carries such impact.

Each item purchased from our curated artisan section supports not one but TWO small businesses — ours and the over 80 artisans we carry! 💛 Double the small business impact 💛

Shopping with intention and heart has never been easier — with all of our inventory available in store AND online, with store pick up and shipping available.

And that’s why this holiday season, we’re sharing the #darlingartisans In the Studio series, to show the faces and lives behind the purchases you make at Darling.

FIRST UP — Catelyn Kelsey Designs — not only a talented maker, but also Darling’s Assistant Director of Operations! 💖

Our Story

Voted Best Consignment Shop in C-VILLE FIVE years running! 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, AND 2019! Darling is a curated boutique offering women’s consignment and handmade local artisan goods, with new arrivals every week.

From affordable fashion to high-end bargains, handmade jewelry to small batch beauty products, to accessories, gifts, and home decor, Darling passionately supports local.

Shop owner Linnea White believes every woman deserves to feel truly beautiful, and hopes to create a community of women empowering women through Darling. We believe… - You are altogether beautiful, darling. - Quality is better than quantity. - Finding a name brand item for a steal is easy on your wallet (and easy on your achy break fashionista heart). - Personal style is an expression of your inner beauty, and playing dress up is all a part of the process. We are passionate about empowering women and inspiring strength through fashion to restore dignity and true beauty. Walk alongside us as we discover the beauty of life. Because it's just darling. ---- "New at Darling" Albums | Pictures of new consignment items will be posted every Friday. Snag them by commenting or calling us before they hit the floor for the weekend!

We will be back on the runway Saturday, October 9th at 2pm at the Darling Boutique Birthday Fashion Show! We will be joining in the fun of celebrating Darling Consignment Boutique 9th year of being in business! Location: 115 1st St, Charlottesville, VA We love collaborating with other small businesses! Cheer all of us hard working women on, Darling Boutique, Renee's Boutique LLC and Chic & Classy Image Consulting, Khalilah Jones! Enjoy all of the fabulous New Fall Styles in motion 💃!
Before you visit all the great #secondhandclothing stores in Cville for fall finds (Darling Boutique, Rethreads Charlottesville, Plato's Closet, Twice is Nice, and Uplift to name a few) read this great article from The Good Trade on cleaning tips so you can safely don your new look! https://www.thegoodtrade.com/features/how-to-clean-used-clothing
"Fourth of July lunch, but make it fashion." Banessa was already on some next level, Independence Day-themed style at our picnic with Darling Boutique! 🧺💃🏻 Shop at Darling, eat Rev Soup and maybe YOU can look this cool to kick off the long weekend (maybe not, but you'll never know until you try!) We'll be closed Saturday and Sunday so come get that local lunch today, and visit our friends at Darling while you're downtown to put that firecracker ensemble together! 👗🧨 📸 Robinson Imagery x Do Me A Flavor
Grateful 🙏🏾 for the opportunity to share the mic with Linnea, Owner of Darling Boutique! Check it out and don't mind my camera being turned the wrong way. IG is a learning process for me 😄. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQgZ-nVFLmw/?utm_medium=share_sheet

Those shades with that dress. That apple with that soup. Darling Boutique owner/stylist Linnea White is the absolute best in Virginia (or anywhere else, we'd wager) at building ensembles, and we had the most fun we've had in oh, say, 15 months getting to hang out with her and her staff #inperson at our rooftop picnic! 🕶👗🍎 🍲 When the pandemic hit Linnea pivoted to a combo of online sales and private in-store fittings that kept Charlottesville (and beyond) distancing in style. Since she literally helps build the perfect look for a living the roof of her freshly reopened shop was the obvious choice for a Downtown Mall/small biz get-together to celebrate spring and the vaccine rollout in style and the sunshine. If she looks especially pleased here it's probably not JUST because of the soup but because she found time to get engaged over "the break"! (We think it's mostly the soup). 💒 Darling's social feed doesn't quit, so if you're feeling "at sea" with what to fill out your closet with this summer give her a follow, and be sure to swing by her boutique (115 1st Street South) the next time you're picking up from Rev Soup (we're RIGHT around the corner from each other). 🛍 📸 Robinson Imagery x Do Me A Flavor
We went on a little C-ville small biz picnic with our friends Darling Boutique and Do Me A Flavor and it didn't suck! Of course, the outfits, the food, and the photos were 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 What? You want to see more picnic pics? Fine! Keep your eyes on our Gram, and in the meantime, do yourself a flavor and shop at Darling!
Come see our Spring collection during our pop-up at Darling Boutique this Saturday from 10–2! https://www.fulgentdesign.com/blog/new-spring-collection-and-may-15-pop-up-at-downtown-charlottesvilles-darling-boutique
It’s Madam J Beauty for us! 😍🤩 SAVE THE DATE: This Saturday from 10am-3pm, we will be poping up at Darling Boutique for their Mother’s Day Market!! Beat us there 😏
Continued Celebration of Woman Owned Businesses! Linnea White of Darling Boutique How did you get into what you are doing now? *A leap of faith! At 25 years old, I quit my full-time job with Albemarle County Public Schools and became the owner of Darling. After graduating from University of Virginia in 2010, I stuck around cuz I just loved Cville and wanted to figure out how to grow roots here. I loved the local small business scene and culture here as a consumer and quickly jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it on the business side. Darling is turning 9 in October 2021 and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be steering this ship! Being a “shop girl” is a job I never dreamed possible! What is your favorite part about being Downtown? *All the people you meet! From people who work or live @downtowncville, to local residents, to people traveling from outside of Cville. It’s always so fun talking to customers from out of town, bragging about Cville with them, and getting to know the regulars. It’s a vibrant community we love to be a part of. What is the best advice you have received (as a female entrepreneur)? *"You are capable." (And it came from my inner voice during a business coaching session!) As an English major who’d never even worked in retail before (hello, food industry high school through early 20’s!), I have often doubted my ability to do this thing. But in 2020, I had a very needed moment of enlightenment that shaped how I navigated the pandemic as a business, as a boss, as a team. Why do you think it’s important to celebrate women-owned businesses? *Women have historically been undervalued, under-recognized, and underpaid in the workforce. Women’s History Month (March) is a time to honor and celebrate the many contributions women have made and are making and will make! It’s a reminder that it is necessary to honor the history of women and to continually challenge the discriminations that women face — especially women of color. But celebrating women-owned businesses isn’t enough. It’s also about supporting them with our wallet and platform! We vote every day for the world we want with our dollar.
