I made one very important stop during my short visit to Fayetteville-and that was to see Pam Pemberton and her amazing floral-wonder shop, Flora. Flora sits tucked away in a postage-stamp sweet brick cottage right off the downtown Fayetteville square. Visit Flora's online gallery to view Pam's incredible portfolio! My blurry photos on this hot July afternoon are unworthy! Many of you will remember Pam P. from hi Lines- the legendary boutique she ran for years (how many was it??). Pam's aesthetic has always been clean, organic, homespun, eclectic, and unwavering in its rich neutral palette. About twenty years ago, she introduced our small town to some amazing designers- like J. Morgan Puett, Dosa, Jeanne Engleheart of Flax, CP Shades, Margaret O'Leary, Krista Larson, D.A.R., Vivienne Tam, Beth Orduna, Kara Varian Baker. hi Lines left a lifetime of inspiration in the hearts of all those who remember its magic! Thank you for your inspiration, Pam! (And thanks for giving me a job years ago- when you really didn't need an extra (young and inexperienced) salesperson! Best Wishes for your continued success! xoxo **thank you to Amy Zurcher (my senior sales associate @ hi lines who I was fortunate to meet working saturdays at Pam's!) for her help in recalling favorite labels!!
