About Us

Greetings, and thanks for visiting! I’m Arlene Cook, owner of Leenie Rae.

Leenie Rae is my highly-curated women’s boutique in Charlotte, NC, located at Waverly, in South Charlotte. I decided to turn my passion for fashion into a business in 2016, selling only the best contemporary brands.

Leenie Rae carries ready-to-wear-designers such as CLOSED, Clare V., MOTHER Denim, Sundry, Trovata, Velvet, and Xirena, as well as fashionable jewelry and accessories. The store is full of soft textures, comfortable fits, and beautiful craftsmanship! Much pride and oversight is taken in selecting detail-oriented designers who use only fine, quality fabrics. Our merchandise will capture your attention at first touch—and first glance. We’re here for the woman who wears many hats and wants to feel and look beautiful, inside-and-out, while doing so.

All Leenie Rae inventory is continuously updated. Whether you’re shopping Leenie Rae in-store and/or online, I thank you, and hope you have a wonderful experience! As for our name: Leenie Rae stems from “Leenie,” the childhood nickname my late father used through my adult years, and “Rae,” the middle name of both my mother and daughter—hence, Leenie Rae!

If you’re in the neighborhood, stop in and say hello!

See you on the inside,
