Whether its getting the perfect manicure, radiant smooth skin, or flawless makeup, Poppy & Monroe is your one-stop shop to make you and your bridesmaids glamorous for your wedding day. We had the opportunity to sit down with one of the owners, Sherri, to learn more about this unique business.
What inspired you to open Poppy & Monroe?
Karen Kops (my business partner and I) felt Nashville really needed a place where people can get pampered safely- product and service wise. We knew we could offer something completely different from the norm. We set out to create a space that truly makes one feel relaxed and taken care of and also a place where people can learn about and purchase products they could confidently believe is safe for them to use at home.
How long have you been in business?
We will be celebrating our one year anniversary next month, Thanksgiving week. We are so grateful at how much Nashville has supported from the very beginning. We were just voted “Best New Place to get pampered” so we’re just so appreciative!
What is the most rewarding part of owning Poppy & Monroe?
Our client comments for sure whether it’s girlfriends, mom & daughters, sisters, who find themselves busy as many of us are, but find that their time together with us is the best gift they can really give one another. We love hearing that we gave them that experience because you can’t put a price to quality time together.
Why did you choose Nashville as your place of business?
Karen is a native Nashvillian and this was my second home away from San Diego but we both felt so strongly that our brand would be well received here due to the lack of options we personally found when looking for services for ourselves.
What makes Poppy & Monroe unique?
So many reasons but we’re proudest of our team of “Artists” as we like to call our pampering associates. They are truly the best in their art- from nails, facials, sugaring, makeup now dermaplaning services. Our clients speak the loudest as far as accolades/reviews for them so that in itself creates the loyalty we now experience. Our repeat business is astounding and we turn away appointments every day so that tells us we’re doing the right things we set out to deliver.
What is your favorite part of a wedding day?
We have had so many bridal parties in, large and small, and we’re just very proud that they’ve chosen us to be part of their special day. We do everything we can to make the party feel attended to and pampered, especially as sometimes it can be a very stressful time so while with us, we just want them to relax, enjoy everything we offer and have fun!
If you could have any celebrity client, who would it be?
We’ve had a few in but of course we respect their privacy completely as that’s another thing that’s so great about Nashville but I would say Beyonce would have been fun to pamper before her concert the other night. We’re also up for getting the boys in so Justin Timberlake would be another now that he lives here.
If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
Italian coast is next up for me.
