Belle + Beau Boutique were open in Summer 2018 with hopes of bringing something new and fresh to Lafayette Village. For Belle, the vision was trendy, well made, and unique women’s clothing. For Beau, the vision was to bring the first men’s boutique to the Village, with the same idea of trendy, stylish comfortable clothing. The owner, Christina Cermin, is a fierce entrepreneur who also owns her own commercial real estate firm, Iron Oaks Realty. Along with her daughter and collaborator Bella, she is dedicated to making Raleigh the chicest city around. Chances are she will be the face to greet you at Belle + Beau when you drop in, and the face you say goodbye to, arms overloaded with the newest and cutest.
