Celebrating 23 Years

December 9th is our 23rd Anniversary!

I would like to thank each and every customer for making my wildest dream come true.

At 24, I wanted to find a way to stay home with my future babies but also help my husband with the bills. I am a pre-med major who randomly decided to open a clothing store in my mother's art gallery with only $5,000. I can't help but laugh at how naive I was back then, but there has always been something about TCE. When tough times hit, the lord would send me a sign to continue. For instance, he sent me a beautiful person 6 months after I opened the doors, Katy Kelly, a Kappa at TTU, who changed the course of TCE. Business took off and we haven't looked back since that night at the Kappa lodge.

To all the women who have worked for me, (more than 500), thank you from the bottom of my heart. We have accomplished so much together, each one of you brought a special gift and I will always cherish it. You have taught me compassion, empathy, determination, and courage-not to mention picking up the slack when I needed a break! Thank you.

A massive thank you to my husband, who is my biggest fan, and encourages me every day.

Of course, my precious babies, Alexa and Kieran who grew up in the store and are now 21 and 19-you are my world-thank you for putting up with my crazy while I've lived out my career dreams. 🫶

As always, we are constantly evolving and changing. I can't wait for you to see what we have planned for 2024!

Always with Love,

Tahnee Elliott
