Linda Rogers, Plain & Fancy

Tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, met my husband, Charles, here at the beach and will be celebrating 48 years of marriage this month! I am a proud parent of two beautiful children – Charles, Jr., is a chiropractor in Murrells inlet and married to a very special young lady named Liz. They gave us our one and only grandchild, Alexandra, who can do no wrong – you might say she took after her grandmother. My daughter, Jessica, lives in Atlanta where she is a sous chef for an upscale restaurant and loves what she is doing. Last, but not least, I have a lovely stepdaughter, Roxie, who manages the store. She does not leave a stone unturned when she helps our customers with their wardrobe.

What is your favorite way to spend your birthday?

My favorite way to spend my birthday is doing exactly what I want to do, which is an absolute luxury. Having a celebration dinner, with my family, at one of our great area restaurants is the best!

Do you collect anything? What? Tell us about your collection.

If I had to say what I collect, it would have to be plants. I love the outdoors and gardening. I tell the people working in the garden centers that I have to put on blinders to keep from buying another plant. Just gotta get one more!

What’s your favorite photograph in your home?

I have many favorite photos in my collection and absolutely love looking back at childhood photos of my children. Love pictures of my granddaughter Alex – it’s just so much fun to see the changes from year to year. She is a wonderful young lady with a strong Christian faith.

If I had to choose one favorite, it would be one that makes us double over laughing – a photo of my husband and me one Halloween. I was dressed as a lady of the evening, and he was my man. It was a blast and even our best friends in Mount Gilead didn’t know who we were!

You’ve had Plain and Fancy for 37 years – what is your favorite thing about owning this wonderful shop? What keeps your customers coming back year after year?

Being in the clothing business for 37 years has taught me so much. I have seen many manufacturers come and go – great ones, but this industry can be a hard one. The people in the industry become your family, and you all work together to produce the right product. Companies depend on buyers for their input and reaction to their line. Love, love, love it all and expect to have many more years in the business.

Making our customers happy and well dressed is our pleasure and is extremely rewarding. And, I know how blessed we are to have such lovely ladies working with us.

Visit Plain & Fancy at their new location in the Sweetgrass Center (beside Currents) in Pawleys Island. Linda is so excited to show off her beautiful new space! Call the boutique at 843-237-9113.
