2 months and one week ago the owner of Muse Boutique got a phone call from the police about a high speed chase coming to a close thanks to the brick façade of her building in old town Pocatello. Although they never found the driver, Muse Boutique was able to find a fresh start.
“Out of lemons, make lemonade,” said the store’s owner, Kerry Harmon, the day after the accident, leaving her shop in shambles.
“We had just barely put the new inventory up for Christmas and it was all gone, and we had to start all over but at the same time starting all over was a good thing,” said manager Emily Muller.
The newly glittered silver walls are a good representation of the silver lining Kerry and her manager Emily found, giving them a chance to start fresh and design their dream store after only saving about 2% of their past merchandise. But it’s not just new décor and dresses; there is also a new luxury spa in the back.
“She had been talking about it and thinking about doing it for a few months before the car came through and since they closed this down for the remodeling here to fix the damage she decided let’s just go ahead and do it,” Muller explained.
The design aesthetic was completely Kerry’s doing, making sure that it was the perfect blend of hip and historic, considering her building is the oldest commercially run in Idaho.
“Talking about it doesn’t do any justice they just need to come in and see it because it is amazing,” added Muller.
Thanks to hours of hard work, help from the community and Kerry’s insurance company, Muse is now a one stop shop for the ultimate day of pampering.
“Come in we’ll dress you pick out a new outfit go back get your hair done makeup done feet pampered, get all relaxed and then go out for a girl’s night.”
The spa and salon officially opens on Friday, where they will accept walk-ins and appointments. Kerry is still looking to hire hair stylists and nail techs, so feel free to contact Muse if you are interested.
