FAYE WETZEL

Her name’s on the door.  She enjoys every aspect of the business...even after almost 25 years.  Our  very own superhero, she always seems to be in two (or more!) places at once. Don't be surprised if you hear her on AM radio, see her in the store that afternoon, and then catch her on TV in the evening.

LINDA L

Head Buyer/Sales Associate/Mequon Floor Manager
Email:

Linda leads our buying team. We strive to stay a step ahead of the game with Linda at our helm. One day she's wardrobing her clients on the sales floor in Mequon, and later that week she's on the red eye from Vegas market back to Mequon for hugs from her 3 children. Then it's off to the Big Apple. When she isn’t scouting trends she's in negotiations with designers and vendors. I don’t think we can recall a vendor ever saying "no" to our Linda. Are you getting the picture? This women is a machine!

Hobbies: Spending time with family and friends (and cooking for them- did we mention she's an amazing cook??) 

Community Involvement: Linda coordinates holiday meals for the Ronald McDonald House.

Linda to some, but to us she's LZ. LZ loves our customers, and they love her. She really knows how to style a customer from head to toe (she has been known to pull out her make-up kit from her days as a Bobbi Brown beauty consultant to add the finishing touches). As a matter of fact, LZ continues to makeover her colleagues, and, she's constantly reminding Faye to "wear a little more blush."
