Meet Owner & new mother Kathryn Dennis
Kathryn Dennis has had a lifelong love affair with fashion. As a little girl, she would spend hours putting together looks from her grandmother’s silk scarf collection and hosting make-believe fashion shows.
Born and raised in the coal fields of Appalachia, Kathryn loved going to the nearest big cities Knoxville, Tennessee and Lexington, Kentucky, to shop with her mom. During those trips, she dreamed of one day being the owner of her very own clothing boutique where small town girls could purchase the best styles and brands. This childhood dream was the driving inspiration behind her opening Monkee’s of Huntsville, a locally owned and operated fashion boutique located in Merchant’s Square Shopping Center on Bob Wallace Avenue.
Monkee’s signature services include a hands-on approach to fashion, with special attention given to shoppers’ needs. Dennis hand selects every brand and piece that comes into her store and is working diligently to ensure she is serving the women of Huntsville.
Dennis shares, “Monkee’s is a place where three generations of women can shop together, get styled for an event, or get an entire new wardrobe. So many of my customers have become like family. Huntsville is such a special place, and getting to dress the amazing women that live here is truly a dream come true.”
Monkee’s of Huntsville offers a broad range of popular designer brands which include Shoshanna, Paige, Celia B, Amanda Uprichard, Crosby, Anna Cate and many others. They also offer a wide selection of shoes, jewelry and accessories. For women wanting to personalize their shopping experience and refresh their wardrobes, Monkee’s of Huntsville offers private styling appointments.
Kathryn moved to Huntsville in 2020 to pursue her dream. “I chose Huntsville because I knew something special was happening here. The spirit and growth in Huntsville was inspirational. I wanted to be part of it.” Since moving here, she met and married her husband. The two were recently blessed with their first child, Charlotte, whom she calls the “Princess of Monkees.”
