Soletta boutique to close on June 25

SUBMITTED PHOTO  - Carrie Elliott, owner of the Lake View Village boutique Soletta, has announced the store will close June 25.

Owners Steve and Carrie Elliott have announced that they will close Soletta, their shoe and accessories boutique in Lake View Village, on June 25.

“Our lease was up, we’ve had fun and the shop was successful enough. But it’s time to do something else,” Steve Elliott said. The boutique opened five years ago, offering a unique line of shoes, jewelry, handbags and clothes not found in other boutiques.

“I tried to offer brands and selections you couldn’t find at the mall and that were very unique for the Portland area,” Carrie Elliott said. “In a world of online shopping, it is very tough for a single-location boutique to compete.”

The couple has lived in Lake Oswego for 28 years and say they have enjoyed being part of the Lake Oswego business community.

“We want to thank all of our great customers who supported us over the last five years. We made many new friends who made this decision very difficult,” Carrie Elliott said. “I want to thank my husband, too, for giving me this opportunity. We all need to continually support our local boutiques, restaurants and other retailers, or they will not thrive and it will affect the vibrancy and fun of our local community.”

A closing sale is in progress. The store is located at 390 N. State St., suite 116 in Lake View Village.
