The Orchid's Team

Grace Boekestyn (owner)

Grace has looked forward to this new venture, taking the piece of Heritage Garden Gallery she loved most – Lilie’s Boutique, to a new location.  She enjoys the challenges of managing a business, loves to purchase and seek out new lines of clothing, and thoroughly enjoys clothing herself.  You will find her helping you with your clothing purchases at her new boutique, and of course, inviting you to have a cup of coffee while you shop!

Grace enjoys reading and travel – next dream, a Rhine Cruise.

Shani Russell (sales associate)

Shani comes to Orchid’s Boutique with many years of experience in the beauty industry, both as a hair stylist and a cosmetologist.  For the last two years, she has worked in Lilie’s Boutique at Heritage Garden Gallery.  Her responsibilities included purchasing beautiful lines of clothing, creating effective displays, and of course, providing great customer service.  She loves clothing and looks forward to assisting you with your fashion purchases at our new Orchid’s Boutique.

On a more personal note, Shani enjoys travelling, especially to sunny destinations and is a country music lover.
