Lele B’s Boutique

Lele B’s Boutique has fun, unique treasures for individuals with a sense of fashion and humor. Owner Michelle Lenzi has filled her shop with jewelry, clothing, accessories, gifts, and games. 

“When it comes to gift items, whatever makes me laugh is coming in the store,” says Lenzi. “I like more inappropriate, colorfully worded gift type of stuff.”

Lenzi started Lele B’s Boutique online in 2015 to share her love of shopping. 

“I always had a fire for fashion. I know that sounds cliché, I guess, but when I was working an office job in downtown York, and I saw these new stores opening, I was like ‘I think I could do this,’” remembers Lenzi. 

After two years online, Lele B’s Boutique became a brick-and-mortar store in downtown York. Lenzi relocated her shop to Gettysburg after two-and-a-half years. 

“I feel people here are more supportive of small businesses. There’s more foot traffic, and you’ve got tourists,” says Lenzi. 

She continues to take orders online through social media on Facebook and Instagram, but most of her merchandise is found in the store itself. Shipping is free for online orders. 

“If you’re looking for a unique, stylish, fun piece of clothing or something you’re not going to see 50 other people wearing, you can come here,” says Lenzi.

Lenzi set up shop in Gettysburg six weeks before the pandemic closed everything down. Now, as the historic town returns to normal, she says she is excited to have more visitors to her store. 

“I’m here. I’m ready to meet people. I love talking to people. I just want them to come in,” she says.
