Katty Kelly's Closet - A Personal Shopping Experience
Katty Kelly’s Closet has been in business for eight months, and the shop recently celebrated its Greater Lexington Chamber membership with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Located at 814 East Main Street, just up the hill from the Old Mill, Katty Kelly’s Closet is a family business.
“We are located in Lexington County because we have been a part of Lexington since 1980, and our children also graduated from Lexington High School,” said owner Kelly Abston. “Our store is family owned, so we don’t have employees. This is what gives our clients that special attention they deserve.”
One of the most appealing things about Katty Kelly’s Closet is the unique clothing and accessories customers will find.
“We are also a specialty boutique so we only buy a few of each piece so that you don’t have to see everyone in Lexington wearing your clothes,” Abston said.
The unique boutique offers online shopping as well as the option of visiting the store on Main Street and having a personal shopping experience with Kelly herself. As unique as the shop is, the business name is almost as unique, and there’s a story behind it.
Abston said the most often asked question is where she came up with the name Katty Kelly’s Closet. She explains that Caddy Kelly was a nickname given to her long ago by a friend she worked with.
“I love being silly, and as my mom will tell you, I’m very much a girlie girl,” Abston said. “We pride ourselves in assisting women in selecting the perfect wardrobe for every occasion. We have women’s clothes, jewelry, and footwear that will have all heads turning when you walk in the room.”
According to Abston, the most gratifying aspect of the job is “assisting people feel good about themselves with their clothes and accessories.” And her plan is to continue serving Lexington County with the finest women’s clothes.
