About Lace + Arrow
Welcome to Lace + Arrow! We are a contemporary and modern boutique located in the heart of our city, downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana! We have a highly curated selection of apparel, jewelry, shoes, home goods, and the list goes on-and-on! We have brought a few of our favorite brands into L+A, some of which are not carried in Indiana at all; we think you will love them as much as we do!
Lace + Arrow is a boutique that has been brought to life with a huge passion and an aim to make a lifelong dream come true. We believe in the power of #girlboss, and believe that all women should feel empowered and inspired!
Our store front is located directly next to Parkview field at The Harrison. When Lace + Arrow was but a dream, this exact location was where we knew we wanted to be in. We love our community, and are so proud to be involved in the revitalization of #dtfw!
Our online store is small, but will be growing with time. New items will be added daily, so be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for new arrival posts! We ask that you please be patient with us as we grow our website, and keep in mind anything you see out on Social Media can be ordered by calling us at 260-449-9090.
Who exactly are we?
Our Owner, Heather Swager, created Lace + Arrow with a desire to follow her forever dream. Heather has had a life long love for design and merchandising, and worked retail for a portion of her life. The other portion she was on the business side, working as an analyst and utilizing her Graduate degree in Business. The love for fashion never subsided, and when the timing was perfect, and the support of her family were in full force, she created L+A. Heather is passionate about her 3 beautiful children, and will always have a family first mentality, even as a business owner. She is a wife to a man who always offers his full support (who also happens to do all the L+A accounting), and a woman who strives to bring you the best in fashion!
Melissa Taulbee is our Boutique Manager, and let us be clear when we say, Lace + Arrow would not be what it is today without the love that Melissa pours into our boutique and our customers. Melissa has worked retail almost her entire working life, managing other boutiques and putting her fashion forward thinking to work. She is a stylist at heart and what makes us most proud is her drive to make sure that our customers FEEL beautiful. Melissa is a Mom of two precious and gorgeous little boys who are always keeping her on her toes, and is the wife to Jake, who worked incredibly hard with Heather's husband to build all of our beautiful displays and cash wrap! Melissa believed in Lace + Arrow from the moment that Heather uttered the first words of opening her own boutique, and has been her partner ever since.
We are so excited to be on this journey with all of you!
