Two of my students, Abbey Lonski and Clare Saunders, were recently featured in the St. Kate’s news for their research work with Elinor Artful Adornments. Click here to read about their research work with Elinor Augé of Elinor Artful Adornments, then come shop at this wonderful store.

Colorful, warm and whimsical are adjectives that come to mind when you step into Elinor. The small boutique on the corner of Snelling and Randolph avenues in St. Paul carries a selection of garments and accessories by local fiber artists and jewelers. This fall semester, owner Elinor Auge collaborated with two St. Catherine University students on a market research survey.

The result: more ideas for Auge on how to better reach potential customers. —Pauline Oo, (651) 690-6181, St. Catherine Univeristy
