Longtime Mary Kay consultant Lori Litzer has been operating her business, Signature Look Studio, at 5665 N. Main St. for the last several years. The location has been a studio for training, meetings and get togethers for her team.
In addition to her Mary Kay consulting, Litzer is also an active musician, performing regularly as Lorelei and Three’s Company. While the Signature Look Studio is not a business open to the public, Litzer has been a regular participant in the Red Bird Art Walks each month, opening her space and hosting local musicians at the event.
“However, now I want to be more involved in the community. I also want to help fellow musicians who have been struggling during the past two months because of the pandemonium,” she said.
To achieve these goals, Litzer and two friends came up with a different concept for her business. The new store, Hip to the Groove, is scheduled to open in July. Joining Litzer in the enterprise is Teresa Wilhelm and Wendy Gericke.
The boutique will feature band wear and also fashions from the 1960s and 1970s at various price points.There will be a phonograph playing the sounds of the decades in the shop. “Bella is a huge Queen fan and our own ‘hippie,’ She loves the look and the sound of those eras,” Litzer explained. Green Bubble Gorgeous products will also be available for sale in the store.
In addition, local musicians will perform regularly along with having their art work on display and for sale. CDs created by solo musicians and groups will be sold at the new boutique, as well.
“We plan to have many different events so we can support each other and also become an integral part of the downtown community,” Litzer offered.
Prior to Hip to the Groove opening, Gericke held a two-week pop up boutique featuring fashions from her Napoleon, Ohio-based company, Wen-Lee-Mae Boutique.
