Boutique 41 offers Foxy Lady classics in an outlet store on the main drag

By Jane Bartnett

Who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? Siesta Key-area shoppers, following in the footsteps of the treasure-hunting pirates who frequented these shores many years ago, also enjoy discovering hidden treasures.
Being surprised by wonderful bargains that appear fresh from the selling floor of the island’s exclusive Foxy Lady store makes a trip to Boutique 41 a must for all fashionistas.
“It’s our secret store,” said Foxy Lady founder and owner Lorry Eible of her outlet store, located at 5900 S. Tamiami Trail.
Inside the brightly lit shop, the hunt and the fun begins. Eible created the boutique that is filled with sale items ranging from casual attire and accessories to beautiful ball gowns and formal wear from both Foxy Lady locations, the second being on St. Armands Circle. It allows her to feature a greater variety of new merchandise at both shops.
“We have a lot of sportswear that is mostly 60% to 70% below wholesale,” Eible said. “Our popular brands are sold here. We also have a nice variety of designer jeans, tons of great tops, and a lot of fun dresses and jackets.”

Deeply discounted glamorous evening gowns and short formal wear for prom, evening and weddings are found in the back of Boutique 41. Although there are a variety of sizes, not all sizes are available in every dress. Much like the rest of the store, the stock changes on a regular basis.
Foxy Lady shoppers who are loyal followers of the Canadian designer Joseph Ribkoff will be delighted to discover a varied selection of the designer’s women’s wear and dresses for which the store is so well known. The designer, whose dresses have been worn by contestants in the Miss America contest, once told the Montreal Gazette newspaper that the Ribkoff woman is someone who likes to stand out from the crowd. During Foxy Lady’s 52 years, Eible has always featured leading international designers in her stores.
“At Boutique 41 … we also have new things that are reasonable but not on sale,” said Eible. These “new arrival” items, as they are called, include a changing array of clothing and accessories
On a mid-March visit to the boutique, at the front of the store, reasonably priced and extremely light-weight cross-body shoulder bags that could be perfect for casual everyday wear were shown in a pearly white, pearly silver or pearly black parachute-like fabric. A comfortable, wide cloth strap
