Jena Green - Co-Owner/Buyer/Boss Lady
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for shopping with us! We are delighted to cater to your shopping needs with our new website! If you don't already follow me on social media then let me tell you a little about myself!
I am the mom to 2 precious little divas Brynley(4) and Brecklyn(1.5). I've been married to my college sweetheart Ross for 8 years, which feels more like 20, ha! When I'm not working my tooshie off for Apricot Lane, I am enjoying my wonderful little kiddos!
I am so passionate about this boutique, and I am so thankful that God blessed me with the ability and support to open it, all thanks to my amazing parents of course! Can't believe we've already been in business for 5.5 years! We have the very best staff that works for us, both in our brick and mortar locations and in our warehouse! Without all of their hardwork and dedication to our family, we wouldn't be where we are today!
If there is anything you ever need, please don't hesitate reaching out! Make sure to follow me on instagram @jenagreen920 for sneak peeks and behind the scenes! xoxo
