A new women’s clothing boutique is now open in Lebanon.

Tasha Marshall, owner of Pretty Dandy Boutique, saw a need for affordable high-end fashion and decided to act.

“Small businesses like Pretty Dandy Boutique are a critical component of and major contributor to the strength of our local economy,” said Boone County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Molly Whitehead. “We look forward to seeing Tasha grow her business.”

Pretty Dandy Boutique, located at 212 West Main Street in Lebanon, offers trendy women’s clothing in size small through 3XL. They also carry fashionable jewelry, handbags and accessories in addition to organic soaps and lotions.

“We are pleased to welcome Pretty Dandy Boutique to the heart of Lebanon,” said Lebanon Mayor Matt Gentry. “Downtown Lebanon is an ideal location to start a small business, and I look forward to seeing Tasha’s boutique flourish.”

Tasha and her husband Zach, both Boone County natives, have three young girls.

“The name Pretty Dandy Boutique comes my girls’ love for dandelions and a slogan my father would always say to me,” said Marshall. “Growing up, I have many fond memories of shopping with my mom, but we always had to travel outside of Boone County. I chose to start my business in Lebanon to provide a local option for women to receive a personalized shopping experience.”
