As a final tribute to our 10 Year Anniversary we had the pleasure of partnering with Velocity Cycling Studio to host a spin class on December 28, 2012.
Rapunzel herself was the guest instructor and as the event photographer, I got to witness Randi put her fellow spinners through a grueling but fun workout!
100% of the proceeds from this event went to The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, FL blog

Decade: Looking Backwards and Forward!

19 Dec

We finish up¬†our “Decade: Where It All Began” series with the final questions in our interview with Rapunzel herself, Randi Evans Siegal. We hope you have enjoyed this walk down memory lane as much as we have enjoyed putting it all together! blog

1. What has surprised you the most about the business in the last 10 Years?
RES: In the last 10 years I’ve seen a lot of stores go in and out, but there is a good group of us who have been consistent and are on the Island to stay. I’m most surprised that my not-so-typical Palm Beach style has been so attractive to the locals. blog

2. Where do you envision the business 10 Years from now?
RES: In 10 Years I envision the same, though I would like a larger children’s store. I just need to find the right “space.” I love how the adult store merchandise changes with the times but is still consistent to the core. blog3. What is your favorite thing about the business today?
RES: Definitely the employees! Everyone pitches in and the store + the merchandise really represents all of our individual style.
blog
4. If you were a customer what would your favorite items in the store be?
RES: I love the skinny cords in bright colors that we have right now from Citizens of Humanity, Hudson Jeans, J Brand and AG Jeans. The concert band tees from Chaser LA are my favorite go-to casual tees. Last but not least TKEES flip flops. I wear them every day, even on a day in NYC where it’s in the 50s.

5. What is the funniest thing that has happened in the past 10 Years that maybe¬†wasn’t funny at the time but now you can look back and laugh?
RES: I once had a customer come in with a parrot on her shoulder. The parrot pooped in the store. Looking back it’s pretty funny!

Decade: Opening Rapunzel’s Closet

9 Nov

We’re continuing our trip down memory lane with the opening of Rapunzel’s Closet and more of our interview with Rapunzel!

blog¬†Coming Soon Signage Before the Opening of Rapunzel’s Closet on Royal Poinciana Way

blog Painted in her favorite signature purple

While working in her new shop, Randi soon began to acknowledge the shortage of local places to buy edgy, fashion-forward clothing. Known for its more sophisticated, tailored and polished look, Palm Beach did not offer Randi and her creative contemporaries the trend-setting selections they craved. So, in September 2003, Randi called on her innate sense of style and business savvy to open her first clothing boutique Rapunzel’s Closet, two doors down from the gift shop, on Royal Poinciana Way.

Just as Lilly Pulitzer paved the way for the pastel prints the area is often associated with, Randi introduced stodgy Palm Beach to a wide range of designers that the island‚Äôs denizens often had to pick up on their globetrotting travels. Jeans became the shops calling card, along with an eclectic mix of new and well-known fashion and accessories designers. The resulting success was instant ‚Äď so much so ‚Äď that just three months later Randi introduced her second boutique of the same name, on the opposite side of Palm Beach, just off chic shopping destination Worth Avenue.

¬†1. What was your biggest challenge in opening the first¬†Rapunzel’s Closet?

RES: My biggest challenge in open in the adult store is that I didn’t know how much to buy of each item. ¬†I completely overbought. ¬†But that was a blessing. I put the overstock in an empty frame store space on S. County and that because my next and current clothing store!¬†

Decade: Where It All Began

2 Nov

blogAs we get closer to our big 10 Year Anniversary Party we want to take you down memory lane with us. We’re going to be sharing pictures and having a Q&A with Rapunzel herself during the next few series of blog posts. We hope you enjoy reading about our past 10 years as much as we’ve enjoyed going through the pictures and talking about¬†our favorite memories!

1.       How did you get the nickname Rapunzel?
RES: My dad gave it to me when I was born.  I think he really liked the name Rapunzel and to this day, still calls me by it.

2.       How did you decide on the Rapunzel’s Branding? The RC logo, bag/tissue colors?
RES: My grandma’s favorite color was purple, and when I was little she had a gift shop in the front of my grandpa’s postcard company’s warehouse. ¬†So I wanted a purple store. ¬†And I thought the lime green was a good accent color to go with it.
3.       What was your favorite part about owning the gift shop?
RES: My favorite part of the shop was merchandising. ¬†I loved moving things around, cleaning and reorganizing. (It’s still my favorite part today)

4.       What gift item was your favorite to sell?
RES: My favorite gift item to sell were the wooden animal clocks.  They were so unique, and handmade in the US. I loved selling them and sometimes I was even able to customize them.  We once made a blue pelican for the Palm Beach Day School auction.
