NEW ‘MONOGRAMS DANIEL ISLAND’ SHOP OPENS
On Monday, Oct. 8, Monograms Daniel Island became the newest business to set up shop on Seven Farms Drive on Daniel Island. Described as an “upscale monogram boutique” catering to Daniel Island and all of the Charleston area, the store held a grand opening on Monday, offering customers discounts on its products. According to a social media post about the event, the store will offer “lots of adorable, trendy giftware monogrammed and personalized,” as well as baby, birthday, anniversary, holiday, hostess items and decorative accessories. Customers may also bring in their own items to be monogrammed.
Owner Neil Lucado couldn’t be happier about starting her new business in Charleston’s island town.
“I really am over the moon excited to be here,” said, Lucado, who spent the last 10 years living in St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. “Daniel Island reminds me of where I grew up, in Fairfield County, Connecticut. As soon as I drove onto the island a couple of years ago, I immediately felt at home. There is just something about the vibe, the people...This is where I want to be. I feel very comfortable here.”
Store hours for Monograms Daniel Island are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed on Sundays). The shop is located at 260 Seven Farms Drive, Suite F. For more information about the shop, visit their Facebook page or call (843) 936-3541.
