A new women’s clothing boutique brings luxury to its customers right here in Baton Rouge.

Luxe Boutique specializes in clothing, jewelry and shoes catered toward women in their 20s and older. The store opened  Oct. 23, but it had its official grand opening on Nov. 10. The store is located at 18303 Perkins Road and is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.  

Some of the clothing you can find at the boutique includes chic tops, skirts, dresses, shoes and other fun accessories that are hard to find anywhere else.

Luxe Boutique is owned and operated by husband and wife Brian and Chandra Nobel. The Nobel family has prior business experience as the owners and managers of three daycare centers in Livingston Parish. Before Luxe Boutique opened, Chandra did payroll and handled the books for the daycare centers — however, she always had a flair for fashion and is excited to have the chance to bring her visions to life.

“I have had a passion for fashion and clothes since I was little,” Chandra said. “We had the opportunity to make it a reality.”

Chandra uses her knowledge of fashion to hand-pick every product for sale in the store, with some assistance from Brian when he tags along to help. She describes the boutique’s clothes as simple yet stylish with looks ranging from everyday wear to outfits you can sport at a cocktail party.

Besides carrying such a wide variety of styles, Luxe Boutique stands out from the competition in another way.

“I think we have some brands that no one around here carries, as well as some fun, rare pieces,” Nobel said.

Even though the Nobels aren’t Louisiana natives — Brian is from Florida and Chandra is from South Dakota — they said they enjoy having their boutique in Baton Rouge. They said it’s also a perk having the University so close by because of the connection students have with the store.

Currently, the Nobel family has four fashion students from the University who  work for them at the boutique. Being employed at the boutique gives the students an opportunity for real-life career experience and a chance to step into the Red Stick fashion world.
