Let’s face it, sometimes here in the 209 style can take a backseat when the temperatures start to rise. It’s all about staying cool, and not in the fashionable way. Luckily, mom and daughter Sue Oneto and Brandi Oneto own a duo of boutiques in Amador County that have plenty of outfit choices that will leave you feeling stylish without breaking a sweat.
Sue is the owner of Sue’s Shoppe in Jackson, which marked the 49th year in business in May.
“I’ve always loved fashion and still do,” Sue said. “Owning my own store is a dream that I didn’t think would ever come true.”
When Brandi opened up her own shop, Brown Eyed Girl Clothing in Sutter Creek, it was a chance for the mother and daughter to share their joy of fashion and do some collaboration.
“She has a younger eye and I know tried and true,” Sue said. “The good taste is something we both share.”
Both stores offer clothing options ranging from classic styles to contemporary trends.
“We both cater to all ages and have clothes that you can wear day in and day out or for something special,” Brandi said. “Even though we do our buying together, you can still see both our individual personalities in our stores.”
Their shared fashion sense is not the only thing this mother and daughter duo share when it comes to business.
“I grew up in her store, so everything I have learned about customer service and work ethic came from watching her,” Brandi said.
