Meet Our Owner Lisa Lennon
I dreamed of being in fashion since I was a little girl. At a young age, I discovered the confidence and joy brought by a stylish, perfectly fitted outfit. My favorite part of summer vacations were the back to school catalogs arriving at my house, and I would spend hours pouring over every page attempting to create the perfect outfit for the first day back.
Originally from Seattle, I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and hoped to be hired as a buyer for Nordstrom after graduation. Following a short stint in corporate America, I moved to Sydney, Australia to get my master's degree in international business & law.
While in Australia, I worked at a women's clothing boutique in Sydney and fell in love with the effortless yet chic style of Australian fashion. Upon graduating, I met with Australian fashion houses and created a business plan for a boutique in America that was inspired by Australian style. However, the comfort of corporate America got me again, and I ended up in the food industry. This career path brought me to upstate New York, where I met my future husband.
After we married, we decided to settle in his hometown of Cohasset, Massachusetts. I instantly fell in love with Chel Bella. The unique selection, along with personal styling sessions and the exceptional customer service, made the boutique one of a kind. I can still remember popping into the boutique an hour before leaving for a trip to Nantucket and Heidi styled two gorgeous looks for me in under five minutes.
Having the opportunity to continue the 15 year legacy of Chel Bella is an honor. I am so excited to share the confidence and joy brought by putting on a stylish, perfectly fitted outfit.
