While in college at the University of Oregon, I had the opportunity to work alongside my mom, Maria, at Hirons Drugstore. Well known in Eugene as a unique shop with eclectic and unique gifts, Hirons opened us up to the gift world. I worked as a store clerk, while Maria was a buyer for the gift department. That sparked the love for this industry and desire to one day open my own shop. In 2006 that dream became a reality when Maria and I decided to take a leap and open Luxe in a vacant storefront in Oakway Center.
Our partnership is very balanced. Because of the gap in our ages, we are drawn to a diverse array of items that appeal to everyone. Even though there is a gap from different generations, we are extremely close. A lot of people tell us we are more like sisters than mother and daughter.
Luxe has grown and changed a lot since we launched in 2006. The store is packed with all kinds of gift items: jewelry, cards, boxed notes, ribbon, wrapping paper, bath products, baby gifts, books, little treats and more. Much of the store is stocked with lines by designers local to the Pacific Northwest.
We would love to meet you... come by and take a stroll through the shop and meet our shop pup Gracee!
