A new source of retail therapy is coming to downtown Mount Dora that will offer fun and trendy women’s clothing at affordable prices. Ivy Boutique will carry the latest styles of dresses, tunics, jumpsuits, skirts, rompers and more, all under $50. The shop will also sell jewelry, handbags and sunglasses to complement the clothing.

She owns and operates the original Ivy Boutique in downtown Spring Harbor, Michigan, and will now spend her winters in Mount Dora and summers in Michigan. “I opened my first shop over 20 years ago in Colorado, with one goal in mind -- to help women look and feel more beautiful and confident. We offer fun and affordable styles for women of all ages,” said Parnsius, whose store offers looks not currently available in downtown Mount Dora. The store provides live fashion shows on Facebook every Friday, so customers can see new arrivals and shop online, as well as in person.
RELATED: Discover Mount Dora's shopping guide Parnasius’ family moved to Central Florida 30 years ago, and upon discovering Mount Dora, she fell in love with it. She later graduated from Stetson University in DeLand and moved out of the state, but maintained a dream of opening a shop in Mount Dora. Ivy Boutique will open this month at 107 E. 4th Avenue in downtown Mount Dora next to Piglet’s Pantry.
