Marcella Costin is a teacher turned world-traveling entrepreneur with one simple dream, to make beauty and joy accessible to every woman. What started out as a way to give stunning gifts to her loved ones has grown into a passion for giving all women access to the classy-chic look of her custom designs and hand-selected apparel.
Marcella’s personal touch shines in every aspect of her boutique, from the graceful furnishings to the carefully cultivated vibe of relaxed and stylish renovation-chic. It is her desire that each detail blend to create a unique shopping experience that will be as enjoyable and sought after as the gifts themselves.
Marcella opened her first boutique in beautiful St. Clair, Michigan in 2008 and made it a cornerstone of the community for eight wonderful years. While it was with sorrow that she parted with her St. Clair location in the fall of 2016, the change permitted her to focus on reinventing her Lake Orion Simply Marcella, which opened in 2012, located in the lively Lake Orion shopping district. In 2017, Simply Marcella opened a new boutique right in the heart of downtown Cheboygan. Coming full circle, in 2018, Simply Marcella returned home to St. Clair with an all new main street location.

Meet our Miss Minnie Pearl! This 9 year-old Westie has been with Marcella her entire life and has spent many (or should we say “Minnie”) hours in the Simply Marcella boutiques. Not only is Minnie Pearl a boutique dog, but she is a world traveler! She grew up in St. Clair, Michigan, but spent two and a half years of her life in Helsinki, Finland, where she learned to LOVE the snow. Winter is Minnie’s favorite season! In addition to living in Helsinki, Minnie has traveled to other countries including Holland, Canada and France where she has been seen at a wine café or two. Minnie Pearl’s favorite hobbies include boating, swimming, belly rubs and most of all, she enjoys her 8:00 pm Kong Time!
Hello Miss Marla May! This darling little Westie was adopted by the Costin family (Marcella, John and Minnie) in December of 2017. She quickly found her way to the center of their hearts. (Well, maybe not Minnie Pearl’s quite yet, but she is getting there.) Marla May was a breeder dog and had several puppies in her seven years of life. Every day is a joy for Marla! She wakes up with her tail wagging and bounces her way through the day. Marla May is beginning to enjoy traveling and a little bit of boating, but she prefers most of all to be curled up next to Marcella or John (and even Minnie)! Ask Minnie Pearl about Marla May’s morning kisses!
