After 10 successful years in the Malvern Shopping Center with Martha Philpott at its helm, the popular boutique Nota Bene now has a new owner, Linda Orff, and a new name, Silver Linings, writes Caroline O’Halloran for SAVVY Main Line.
When Philpott decided to retire, she turned to Orff, her loyal customer, to see if she wanted to take over the store. Orff, who had long wanted to own a boutique like Nota Bene, jumped at the opportunity. After spending some time with Philpott learning the ropes, Orff officially took over the boutique at the end of July.
However, apart from the new name and a fresh coat of light purple paint, customers will still receive the same welcoming shopping experience they are used to.
The boutique still carries women’s sportswear, fashion jewelry and accessories, and an assortment of baby gifts. The longtime employees are still in place, and the prices are still moderate. Most importantly, the store’s small-town, friendly vibe remains firmly in place.
“I’m continuing Martha’s tradition as a comfortable, relaxed place to shop,” Orff said.
