Featured VH Boutique, Amara Day Spa

Amara has been opened for 4 years, and is a unique little boutique. They started as just a day spa in the basement of Leigh Bennett's Orem home and have now grown to a large basement in her new home in Lindon where they currently have ten employees. Amara started carrying clothing after the first year they were open and the clothing side of things has gone crazy! A few of the hot items they carry are: Anoname jeans, Miss Me jeans, Sang Real Jeans, See Through Souls, Lime Ricki swimming suits, tops, shoes, Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags, etc…. Amara owner, Leigh says that Vintage Hem fits right in with their style and fun culture!

What inspired you to start up your business?
I have loved the industry ever since I went to school and have such a passion for esthetics, and my other second love besides my cute little family has always been shopping, I am a shopaholic so the boutique part just naturally happened:-)

What is your fav thing to wear from your store?
Right now I love Anoname jeans, they fit amazing, the Miss Me sweat suits, they are to die for, and of course we all love our Vintage Hems and can't wait till the new styles come out!!!

What is the best compliment your store received from a customer?
Our whole business was formed from word of mouth so that is a huge compliment. Most people say that our customer service is awesome and it doesn't matter who they see, it's always the same!!!

What are your top 3 secrets to running a good business?
Customer service "over the top", treat your employees like you would any customer, and staying educated on the latest trends in skin care, make-up, clothing etc…….

Who is your best employee and why?
Truly, all of my girls are the best, they each add something great to the spa, if they didn't they wouldn't work here:-) that's a tough one to answer!!!

What is cute employee Tess’s fav slip…I know she has almost every one!!
I would say the tulle ones, she wears them the most and makes them look so sassy!!! She is so excited for the new ones to arrive!!!
