“Refine your style, be the trend.”
Meet Kelly (left) and Lisa (right) – the co-owners of Refinery! Growing up in Scranton, PA, Kelly pursued hair styling throughout and after college. During her seventeen years in the hair industry, she met Lisa. With a background in fashion and teaching, Lisa, from Manayunk, had an immediate love for small town vibe of Phoenixville.
As they worked together, Phoenixville was on the rise with breweries, restaurants, and apartments lining the streets. Yet, even with all the hustle and bustle, there was a problem. Where were places to shop? Seeing this need, the two opened the first upscale women’s clothing boutique, Refinery, in February of 2018.
When I think of Refinery’s style, one word comes to mind – fusion. Kelly and Lisa have artfully combined their distinct personal styles into a creative assortment of pieces. While Lisa prefers a bold, fashion forward, and risk-taking look, Kelly expresses her style as comfortable yet chic, highlighting with accessories and almost never without a statement pair of shoes. Carefully cultivating the Refinery’s look through hand selection, their store boasts a medley of classic, yet trendy and bold pieces. And, of course, the store is sprinkled with local handmade accessories. In addition to helping women design their own style, they set out to prove that you can look like a million bucks without painful shoes and itchy sweaters.
However, the Refinery is more than the jeans, boots, dresses, and jackets. It is about a personalized experience celebrating confidence and empowerment. Serving champagne or wine from time to time, they make it the perfect places to stop on a girls day out. Kelly and Lisa make it their mission to help you find pieces that make you feel confident and beautiful, while feeling comfortable. Women of refined style stand apart from the crowd. Any age, any shape, all are welcome, “… bosses, hard workers, mothers, daughters, aunts, grand moms, friends, wives, caretakers, planners, dreamers and lovers.”
