The Emily’s Experience
Life is made up of a series of moments, but it’s how we experience those moments that counts. That’s why we’ve spent the last 37 years perfecting the one you’ll get at Emily’s.
From the atmosphere, to the selection, to the staff, Emily’s takes into account every detail of your visit from the minute you walk in the door. You can pop in and browse our collections at your leisure, or book an appointment ahead of time to ensure a more personalized experience.
Emily’s is large enough to offer you a great selection and a variety of choices for any occasion, but small enough to give you the one-on-one personal shopping experience you deserve. Our skilled staff specializes in dressing each individual woman so she walks out of the store feeling confident and beautiful.
With our in-house seamstress, on-the-spot fittings and alterations are at your disposal, so you’ll never have to worry about going elsewhere to make your clothing fit the way you want it. Personal preferences are important when it comes to tailoring, and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you leave feeling confident in your purchase.
How We Began
In April of 1982, Staten Island native Emily Rassias opened Emily’s Boutique on Richmond Road. Having grown up on the island, Emily recognized the need for a specialty store that offered the latest fashions and a unique, comfortable shopping experience.
In 1990, the store underwent its first expansion, doubling in size to accommodate its growing clientele. By 2000, Emily’s had expanded even further, adding an evening salon in response to the high demand for special occasion gowns and eveningwear. Today, Emily’s is known for its chic sportswear, dazzling evening gowns and elegant accessories.
