– ABOUT –
Expressing confidence, style, and a limitless passion to do what you love, Susan Israel has reinvented Port Washington’s favorite luxury women’s boutique, Entrée, into a necessary experience for every woman that crosses its path. What began as adoration for clothes as a child in Brooklyn, transformed into Susan’s own interpretation of the fashion industry and later, her influence on it. “I would follow fashion shows growing up – and not the huge ones, not the designers everyone has heard of,” says Susan, reflecting on the beginning of her journey as a style enthusiast and now, storeowner. Susan recalls being infatuated with the up-and-coming designers that are now leaders in fashion, Ready to Wear and exclusive collections we have come to know and envy – such as, Derek Lam, Alexander Wang and Rick Owens.
“Growing up in a very feminist time, it wasn’t ‘cool’ to like clothes,” says Susan.
“It was accepted that fashion is art – and I see fashion as intellect.”
The Entrée aesthetic derives from a collection of lux pieces and everyday wear that bring any “Entréend” woman’s wardrobe to life. A wide array of jewelry and accessories featuring local creators and larger brand names fit the store’s perspective of pairing any look with something personal and true to you.
As the owner and innovator behind Entrée Boutique, Susan’s mission is to make every woman feel like her best self – with personal styling, amazing customer relations and a positive attitude, Entrée exceeds its expectation as a local boutique, and is a renowned destination for confidence, conversation, and beauty, both inside and out.
Susan currently lives in Port Washington, New York with her son and two daughters who continue to be her inspiration, passion, and dedication to pursue one’s dream in business and above all, life.
