A flashy billboard greets guests as soon as they step foot on the paved stone pathway that leads up to Tickle Boutique, preparing them for an eclectic interior outfitted with baroque mirrors and other vintage furnishings. The contrasting elements in the decor reflect the store’s dual roles: it is at once a chic clothing boutique and a relaxing spa.
Whether stopping in to peruse the racks of dresses or to indulge in a mani-pedi, facial wax, or teeth whitening, guests can’t help but notice the shimmering kaleidoscope of styles that characterizes the boutique. Though leather armchairs invite customers to sit back and close their eyes during a relaxing pedicure, the damask-printed mannequins posing nearby demand attention in their striped bandeau tops. Long strings of beads cascade down display racks, creating the impression of a waterfall to match the rainbow of scarves on the wall.
