Certainly a place for holiday shopping, Essential Elements wears its style all year long. Beyond the flavor of creativity and design, Essential Elements is infused with the spirit and energy of its owner, Mel Whaley, her mother, Estelle, (“the face of Essential Elements,) and the rest of the staff.
“We truly believe that all of our customers are phenomenal women with their own sense of style and we’re privileged to share time and space with them.” Mel Whaley
“The beautiful Miss Mel and Lady Estelle of Essential Elements! They keep us looking FIERCE!” Facebook post from Donna Hammond
Beyond the dynamic flow of fashion, Essential Elements opens its heart to support causes like Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness. They create events at the store, and write informative and inspirational messages on Facebook, all to the delight of their many customers. Mel and her staff turn every stone in customer satisfaction, which is why people flock to the many sales and community events hosted by Essential Elements.
“As customers, this is what we do…”
“…and this is what they do.”
