Fashion, function and fun – that is Paulette Peters’ mission.
The Baldwinsville fashionista and owner of Mod Squad Fashion, LTD, is closing in on her first year as a business owner. It is also her first launch into fashion.
“It is so much fun for me to keep up on what is new and hot, and I love it when I find things that are truly unique,” Peters said. “After many years outfitting my family, adding my own flair to the ordinary business attire and somehow finding a way to make pregnancy look good, I wanted to share my fashion sense and stylish finds with moms and girlfriends everywhere.”
The result was Mod Squad Fashion, a hip, trendy and cute women’s fashion boutique with unique clothing and accessories.
“We carry lines such as Brighton, Miss Me, Fresh Produce, Santiki, Love this Life and more,” Peters said, adding her mission is to provide current, versatile clothing and trends to the modern woman. She also does her homework to make sure she is capturing the most current fashion styles.
“I am always inspired by fashion blogs, the Style Network channel, Twitter and celebrities,” she said.
While Peters said she has always loved fashion, her decision to open her own boutique came after she came to a crossroad in her previous position.
“For more than 17 years I worked in production planning at Anheuser-Busch in Baldwinsville,” Peters said. “It was an amazing experience, and a wonderful career. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to gain so much knowledge and experience from an admired, top Fortune 500 company.”
After feeling as though she was at a standstill in her career at Anheuser-Busch, Peters made the move to open Mod Squad Fashion combining her passion for fashion with the business savvy she acquired from her years of experience at Anheuser-Busch. Her combination has paid off as Mod Squad Fashion will celebrate a year in operation on Oct. 1.
“Through Mod Squad Fashion, I pay close attention to what my customers want and are looking for. I talk to every single one of my customers that come in to get feedback on how they feel about certain styles and lines that I have coming in,” she said.
Peters also utilizes Facebook to keep the lines of communication open with her patrons, posting her own fashion thoughts and encouraging responses.
“I see what my customers think because I value their feedback,” Peters said. “I welcome ideas, and will look into any lines that my customers love. I learned that it is not only about what I like and think is cool, it’s about listening to my customers – I am grateful for every single one of them.”
Mod Squad Fashion is located in Market Fair North, 4160 State Route 31, Clay, NY 13041. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. Check out online fashions at modsquadfashion.com.
