Green Boots Boutique brings affordable fashion to area.

Byline: SIC Media Services

HARRISBURG -- It all began with two friends, a passion for fashion and an idea to do something more.

In 2017, Maddison (Green) Maloney and Melody (Boots) Bryant, both full-time employees at Southeastern Illinois College, developed and successfully ran a social media driven women's clothing store through multi-level marketing. Over time, they wanted to purchase clothing they believed would better suit their market and researched means of opening an online boutique. And thus, an idea was born to transform their established business into something that will attract local buyers to affordable, yet fashion-forward clothing through social media.

They launched their social media and website in early 2018 after attending the AmericasMart wholesale retailer market in Atlanta. Bryant and Maloney launched their business and simultaneously began working with the Workforce and Illinois Small Business Development Center at SIC to determine tax planning and start-up assistance.
