Glenna Manning, Manager, TAZ Boutique

Tell us a little about yourself.

I was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and my family still lives there. People ask me about my name and the story is kind of funny. My mom actually named me for my dad’s former girlfriend! She liked the name, so…My former husband is an ER doctor, and we came to Charleston for him to interview for a job there. While we were in the area, he also interviewed for a job in Georgetown, and we both loved it here.

I have three children and one grandson. Margaret is 28, and married to a wonderful guy, Cameron, and they have a four year old son, Jack. Johnny is 25 and Lydon is 18. We recently adopted a sweet rescued German Shepherd – and he runs the show.

Do you have “go-to” outfits in your closet that you know will always work and make you feel your best? What are they?

I love what I’m wearing today – a sleeveless tank dress with a sweater. This style looks good on almost everyone. Every woman needs a few basic pieces, including two pairs of jeans, a boot cut and a skinny, a pair of good black pants and a good black dress. You can do almost anything with this combination.

How long does it take you to get ready and out of the house in the morning?

Usually only 30-40 minutes, but I like my mornings leisurely. I always know what I’m wearing before I get in the shower.

What does “fashionable” mean to you?

To me, it’s being comfortable with who you are and how you present yourself with what you’re wearing. It’s more about how you carry yourself than having the latest or most expensive fashions. If you feel secure, others will see it.

Tell us about managing TAZ boutique. What’s new and exciting this season?

I was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years and finding something I love to do, and I’m good at doing, is very gratifying. I had shopped here for years and after my divorce was looking for a job. One day I was trying on clothes and chatting, telling the people here I was looking for a job. They hired me! That was 10 1/2 years ago. I went from being a mom to being an accomplished career woman – buying and selling great merchandise. I have found my niche. Now our customers text me and make sure I’ll be here when they’re coming in to shop. This job is fun!

Summer clothing is about color – the drab winter is over! It’s fun to buy summer clothes, and your dollar goes further, too. We have gorgeous summer clothing in the store – stop by and see me!
