Shop for a new outfit, get your hair done or have a full spa service? Now you can do all of these things at one spot in Wicker Park. Luchy and Dalia Manjarres opened up Sorelle wanting to provide an all inclusive service that ranges from shopping for fashion merchandise to getting a full service spa treatment at the same time. They didn’t want to open two different businesses, so they opted to merge both of their ideas.
Luchy Manjarres certainly knows “when you are in a hurry, it is tough trying to decide to either shop for a new outfit, get your hair done or go for a manicure & pedicure. Sorelle is a one-stop-shop. You can feel sexy from head to toe.”
