Owner Lauren Rubbelke at The Colette Collection's Sneak Peek Event

We are Community! 

After selling on ETSY for several years, in June 2015 thecolettecolletion.com was launched. The website continued to feature hand-made items as well as an array of contemporary brands and styles. After working a full-time retail management job and her side gig, Lauren decided to take the leap of faith and open a brick-and-mortar store. In April 2016, The Colette Collection proudly opened at 2858 N Clark St. in Chicago's vibrant Lakeview East neighborhood. It was a long-awaited dream come true for Lauren and she is thankful for the help of her two supportive parents.

The Colette Collection is more than a boutique. It is a community; we engage our customers on several social media platforms. We also host in store events and frequent Facebook live sales.  To reach our entire community, in 2020 we began hosting additional virtual events as well. Our Colette community has met via Zoom to make scrunchies together, create fun graphic wine glasses, shop our Fill A Bag promotion and just enjoy each other! Be sure to check our Upcoming Events page.

Our On-line store and Lakeview boutique feature styles from up-and-coming fashion brands to deliver the highest quality at reasonable prices. Our goal is to keep items priced well under $100. Our boutique receives an array of new arrivals regularly, so you will always discover something special and amazing on every visit. As a boutique, we only carry a few of each item, so you do not have to worry about seeing your outfit twin at the next social gathering! Lauren and her knowledgeable sales staff help each customer find pieces that work best for their own style, offering unique pieces that will work season after season.

This on trend boutique has something for everyone.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Email or message us with questions and feedback! We love reviews on our products and services. More importantly refer a friend, our community has Colette Girls from ages 5 to 95!!

Happy shopping!
