Your favorite thing about running a southern business?
I love providing that southern hospitality and giving our customers a great experience.
What do you love about southern clients?
I love all of our clients no matter where they are from! Each woman that visits Pink Dot brings so much joy to the store.
What do you love about Charleston?
I love Charleston because this is home; this is where I grew up. I love what a social city this place is. The water being surrounded by it and it’s so easy to go.
Favorite southern food/why?
Anything with cheese! Cheese is my favorite food group. Pimento cheese would have to be my favorite. When I lived in Portland, that was one of the things I missed most.
Why you started your business?
I didn’t always know I wanted to own a beauty store. I spent six years in Oregon working as a Pacemaker representative. I had fallen in love with a place called Blush, it wasn’t just a beauty store to me, it became my destination after a long day of work in the hospital. When I moved back to Charleston I couldn’t find the brands I had fallen in love with anywhere in town let alone anywhere in the state! I was looking for an environment and a product offering that wasn’t available in Charleston. I wanted a place like the one in Portland where I could be introduced to lines I’d never heard of and learn about them. So I began to create Pink Dot.
Your favorite southern brands/why?
Maya Chia- A Charleston-based skincare line that we carry at Pink Dot. It is incredibly nourishing and hydrating. I love how all of their products smell!
Bourbon & Bowties- I love a good arm party!
Troubadour- It’s a line from Charleston carried in Anthropologie, which is my favorite store, but the line is just so beautiful!
Taxidermy- Her line of accessories is so BAD A**
