More Than a Boutique
And just why is that? As boutique owner, it is my mission to spread the affirmation “I Am, I Can” to teenage girls in our community. Of course teenage girls love to shop for the latest trends in fashion, which helps how stylish and good looking they are on the outside. However, I believe it is a priority and much more important for girls to feel equally beautiful on the inside.
At iConcepta Boutique, our goal is to provide events, programs, and opportunities to discover their identity which is based on who they believe they are, as a uniquely created and gifted being. The “I Am, I Can” programs are all about exploring their true identity, discovering their unique gifts, talents and skill-sets. Then we go a step further and coach on how to use their strengths and how to handle their weaknesses. A masterpiece in the making. An experience that will confidently launch each teen girl into becoming the beautiful, self-confident, secure, authentic woman with purpose.
The boutique provides a safe, and engaging place for young girls to hang out, connect, mentor, explore and of course, have fun! An atmosphere of inspiration, empowerment and creativity. At iConcepta Boutique, we provide a platform to showcase our teenage girls’ talents and skills. Recently at the Spring Glam Opening in April, iConcepta Boutique featured recording artist, Meghan Clark. We have also featured Alexis Loring in the past.
Our Affirmation Calendar features girls from all types of backgrounds,…a cheerleader from Sanford, a recording artist from Nashville, a sophomore from Belfast or even Miss Maine Teen USA. These girls are stepping out of their comfort zones and being an inspiration to others! Throughout the year we accept photos for the next Affirmation Calendar.
Take a look at other great events to watch out for at iConcepta Boutique:
- This August will be our “Back to School Glam” kickoff for middle and high school girls who don’t have the privilege to shop for school clothes. We are providing a gift to select a couple of outfits and enjoy a light lunch. The day will also include some fun activities and definitely cute goodie bags. All at no cost to the girls.
- Luncheons on our beautiful porch. A perfect perch to hangout and enjoy conversation.
- Makeover/styling parties
- Movie night, game night, and so many other ideas I’m sure the girls will love!
"As you can see, iConcepta Boutique is so much more than cute clothes. It is my hope and prayer to have the community band together to support the “I Am, I Can” mission. Looking forward to seeing you and your girls at the shop!" - Concepta
Our Affirmation calendar is a project where each month of the calendar features a girl and her personal “I Am! I Can!” affirmation. This year we have partnered with New Hope for Women, an organization for victims of domestic violence. A portion of the sales goes to New Hope for Women in Maine - supporting women affected by domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and provides educational resources to assist our communities in creating a safer and healthier future.
As part of our continuing efforts to empower girls, we have started a Scholarship Fund which is awarded to a girl graduating from our local high school (Belfast Area High School, Belfast, ME)
