Just off highway 421 in a bustling little shopping center at the corner of Lewisville-Clemmons Road and Styers Ferry Road is where you will find one of the most welcoming and inspiring boutiques in the Triad.
Welcome to Swanky & Swag!
In business since 2005, Whitney Boger is one of the rare people in this world that knew what she wanted to do from a very young age and has made a life out of it! As a little girl, Whitney knew she wanted to be a hair stylist and she started working immediately after graduating from high school. She has always loved working with people and keeping up with trends both in hair and fashion.
Like most successful business owners, she adjusted and adapted along the way, which is how her hair salon, Bangz, transformed into Swanky and Swag in 2018! Almost by accident, Whitney found herself with clients for products and not just styling services.
“I began with making earrings as teacher’s gifts in 2017 and it just was a whirlwind from there. I started doing vendor events all over the triad in a vintage camper!” says Whitney of where the transition began.
Now Swanky and Swag, with its energetic team of Whitney, Manuela, and Madison (keeping it in the family, it’s often daughter Paisley handing the boutique’s social media!), enjoy featuring such popular brands as:
*Bogg Bags – featuring a unique patented design, durability, and they are washable! Unlike other totes, the Bogg Bag won’t tip over and the bottom won’t leak
*Swig Life – Insulated, eco-friendly drinkware and drinking accessories that are dishwasher safe, triple-insulated, spill resistant and have shatterproof lids and a One-Year Limited Warranty.
*Ahdorned Bags – gorgeous and versatile handbags with interchangeable bag straps
*Sheila Fajl – Fajl is a leader in Brazilian styles, with eco-friendly products designed to make you glow.
Add to this mix a stylish variety of ladies clothing, Dock and Bay towels, Doodlations amazing scented candles, fun face masks and you truly have a one-stop shopping experience!
When she’s not in the boutique or enjoying time with her husband, two children, three sweet pups and a cat, Whitney is on the run. Literally! “Running is MY time to unwind” says Whitney.
Clearly a ‘glass is half full’ kind of gal, Whitney is able to celebrate a positive side of the events of 2020. “During the last year dealing with COVID-19, I have definitely been blessed from the support of our local community as well as the support I’ve gained all over the US. With more people shopping online, we have reached 46 states in the U.S.!”
A great attitude from a creative and passionate lady makes for a terrific shopping experience at Swanky & Swag!
