Meet The F+L Boutique Team🖤
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: Hi 👋 I’m Amber and I was born and raised in the First State of Delaware. I have a MBA focused on Organizational Leadership and I worked in HR for a Fortune 100 company for 13 years before I quit to pursue my passion of opening my own business. I’m so proud to say I’m the owner + founder of F+L Boutique and we have been in business since 2010. I married my wonderful husband Jarrad in 2004 and we have the silliest French Bulldog named Biggs. And most of you already know that I gave birth to my son Kennett in Feb 2020 because I spam everyone with pics of him☺️🥰😊
FAVORITE QUOTE: We started saying “What would Chanel do?” around the shop and it just kind of stuck. It’s especially helpful to say when we are making decisions to improve and grow the business. Even though we aren’t a high end luxury brand like Chanel, we still ensure we continue to stand out and be unique in the independently owned boutique world. We are all about FASHIONABLE + LUXE things. A great example of this is our new remodel and rebranding and the fact that we have certified personal stylists on staff. And just like Chanel, we are obsessed with providing a seamless luxury shopping experience for every client.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT F+L:100% the people that I work with and the customers!! I love chatting and catching up with each of you when you visit!
FAVORITE LINE/PRODUCT WE OFFER AT F+L: This is tough because I love sooo many things we curate for the shop.

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: Hi 👋 My name is Amanda and I live right here in Middletown with my husband Gary and my two handsome boys Lincoln and Dawson. I love being a boy mom! My background is in Early Childhood Education. Before I had my own children I actually taught at St. Andrews right here in Middletown, DE.
FAVORITE QUOTE: “Everything happens for a reason” This quote has always helped lead me in the right direction. This quote lead me to make the switch a few years ago from a stay at home mom to my next step of joining the F+L team. When preschool worked out for my youngest Dawson I took it as a sign to join the F+L team. It has now lead me into the right direction again with starting F+L Home with Amber.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT F+L: I love working with the other F+L fashion advisors, styling the customers and the constant changing of inventory. Between styling the space, the events (pre Covid), the change of seasons and how fast our inventory moves no two days are alike. There is always something exciting happening!
