We had the good fortune of connecting with Jen Summers and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jen, how do you define success?
Success to me is a feeling of satisfaction that comes from experiencing my vision, determination and hard work come to life. It is defined not only by personal and professional achievements of goals that have been set but also from seeing the impact of accomplishments empower those around me.

What should our readers know about your business?
We are a luxury lingerie boutique in the heart of Phoenix that strives on empowering, encouraging, and elevating women through beautiful lingerie. Our mission is to provide an experience for women to enhance the beauty of their body and this season of their lives. As people, we are continually evolving and adapting and with that we experience a deluge of changes. Each change is beautiful and tells a transformational story. We are here to help women share that story.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend were visiting me here in Phoenix, we would hit up all the best spots. Cocktails on the patio at Hillstone, brunch at LGO, happy hour and bruschetta at Postino’s, dinner on the patio at Virtu, thiking in the Preserves, day trip to Sedona to see the red rocks, overnight in Flagstaff to hike and stroll boutiques downtown, and a pool day at Montelucia.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My success is only achievable with the love and dedication from my team, the support of my friends & family, and the hard work put in by my co-owner and mom, Margie.
