Norwell, MA | Chris Carey
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a BS in Fashion Marketing. I began my career with Lyn Evans in 2010 in the Hanover store which relocated to Norwell 3 years ago. I had worked in both specialty and big box stores for many years and preferred a specialty store experience. Lyn Evans had such a personal and meaningful connection to their customers that I knew this was the right fit for me professionally. I enjoy helping to make a difference in my customers’ lives and creating a beautiful, warm and laid back atmosphere for them to shop in.

This is based on a highly personalized and selectively well edited approach to fashion, fit and lifestyle requirements of each individual. When it works, we say it with sincerity…and when it doesn't, we are equally vocal.
