A Five Year Milestone
Every journey starts with a single step. That's the mantra of a small business owner and that's how Girls Got Swing evolved.
Five years ago, opening our doors for the ﬁrst time felt a lot like introducing a newborn. We passed out cigars -- little chocolate ones wrapped in pink foil. Our shop was conceived with TLC and the hope of a thriving future. And it grew by taking baby steps.
Born of a passion for both golf and fashion, it was built on the idea that dressing for success isn't limited to the ofﬁce. Looking good boosts conﬁdence, and women are inspired by apparel and accessories that let them express their individuality whether at work or play. And the better they feel, the better they perform.
Our goal has always been to provide products that are both fashionable and functional. We carry brands designed to be worn on and off the course, with unique features like mesh sleeve panels, sun protection factors, and moisture-wicking fabrics. Interesting accessories are tucked-in throughout the store, making it fun to shop.
This month, we're introducing a new long-sleeve top that's made of fabric that cools the skin in response to body heat. It's a perfect example of how far sportswear has come, and how well it transitions to women's activewear in general.
We're one of the few retailers in our area offering designer warm-weather apparel year-round for our customers (aka: Snowbirds) who shop before they escape for the winter. And we always welcome them back in the spring!
As we celebrate our fifth birthday, all are invited to stop into Girls Got Swing on December 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the Holiday Walk at Beachcliff Market Square. We'll save a slice of birthday cake for you!
The shop is located in the Beachcliff Market Square at 19316 Detroit Road in Rocky River. For more information, call 440-333-3377 or visit www.girlsgotswing.com or facebook.com/GirlsGotSwing.
