Along Woodland Avenue sits a spirited little shop called Bluetique. The exterior itself is quite the eye-catcher, decorated in bold shades of blue graffiti with silhouettes of women shopping and striking a fashionable pose. The name of course, plays off of the University of Kentucky's main hue, paired with the word "boutique." Bluetique originated in Lexington in 2011 and the store's affordable concept came from co-owner and retail director Elizabeth Shipley. Coming from a female dominated family (she has two daughters), Shipley wanted to create a store with hip and affordable clothing for young women. The store is in a prime location for its core audience, being mere miles from UK's campus. Inside the doors of Bluetique is bright and inviting, with racks of colorful, youthful clothing and tables of unique jewelry. When Bluetique first opened its doors, the focus was on fun game-day apparel as well as a collection of denim merchandise. The shop has since grown, carrying a large variety of clothing and accessory options from shoes to personal monogramming. Bluetique also has a shop in Bowling Green as well as five other states; Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana. If you are on the hunt for a cute dress for Keeneland or an upcoming graduation and you aren't looking to spend a bundle, head on over to the Woodland Triangle and catch a case of the blues!
