Neely by VNB was started by founder Neely Burch who attended Washington and Lee University. After graduating and landing a job in New York City, she realized how much she missed shopping during her college experience in a small town. Since then, her mission has been to bring a “travelling boutique” to suburban or rural college campuses across the east coast such as Sewanee, Furman, and Wake Forest.
Targeting college-aged women, the company offers a selection of accessories, shoes, and jewelry in their unique tour set-ups consisting of a chic trailer placed on the quad of college campuses. They carry popular brands as well as items from Burch’s own private label. This unique idea is revolutionary to young adults who lack the luxury of having an urban city (or access to a decent mall) close to campus.
Neely by VNB will be touring Wake’s campus from April 9-11 so be sure to stop by their boutique!
