From casual duds to evening wear, Panache features tons of different looks. Owner and founder Lynne Barnett says the goal of Panache has been the same since the store opened: to make each woman “feel valued for her individuality and life experiences.” Panache strives to provide more than just clothes—they try to encourage every woman to feel beautiful inside and out. The attentive staff helps every customer find their sense of panache for any occasion, whether it’s with the perfect little black dress for a night on the town or a uniquely divine handbag that will soon become part of your signature look. Staff suggests outfits to flatter a woman’s individual form, style, and personality. One regular says that Panache staff even call her to let her know about new merchandise they think she’d like. The store even has on-site tailoring.
