Dressing for success is an acquired skill, but dressing for successful moon landings requires scientific input and a penchant for tinted head rims.

When discussing the inspiration behind Avalilly's Boutique with reporters from Lake Norman Woman magazine, Emily Haggart explained that she "had a love of fashion from the day she was born." Armed with her keen, evolving aesthetic sense and a sharp entrepreneurial mind, Emily fills her shop with rotating seasonal inventory of designer clothing.
A trio of mannequins garbed in vibrant dresses, necklaces, and scarves greets visitors to Emily's shop. Inside, a kaleidoscope of colors dangles from racks, making up an array of tops, bottoms, and coats from names such as Joe's Jeans, Michael Stars, and Alice & Olivia. Stacks of crisp blue designer jeans line the shelves while ornamental display trees glimmer with bangles, earrings, and rings that entice the eye.
