River Valley Woman


As we continue our ongoing journey to connect with other women, business owners, and customers across the state we have had the amazing opportunity to partner with a local magazine, River Valley Woman. As you may remember, Ashleigh was on the cover of their September 2018 issue that featured her journey before founding The Refinery Boutique and what the future has to hold for the business.

We are a huge fan of River Valley Woman because they truly encourage their readers to champion women to GO. BE. DO. and CONNECT in their daily lives. Their mission includes instilling in the surrounding communities a desire to applaud the dynamic women they feature in their magazine. When Natasha, the founder of River Valley Woman approached us about doing a 2-page style spread, we were ecstatic! Natasha has been apart of this magazine from the beginning and has great dreams and plans for this magazine that we couldn’t wait to be apart of!

We have been creating content for the style spread since their October 2018 issue and we will continue to bring you the latest trends, style tips, and of course outfit ideas for your upcoming events with each magazine that hits the shelves!


In October, we featured our Capsule Wardrobe. We took 9 fun fall pieces and created 10 different outfit combinations! From casual to dressy and everything in between, these looks have created so many different outfits from the things you may already have in your closet.


In November, was all about finding your fall fashion style. Whether that be jeans and a long cardigan, cowl neck sweaters, or a fun romper for the weekend wedding you have coming up! This issue was heavily focused on accessorizing your wardrobe as well. As you can see, adding a fun pair of earrings, a long necklace or a statement clutch can go a long way in an outfit to help you be unique in your own fall style!



In December, Buffalo Plaid and Sparkles were the trend for the upcoming holiday season! We were seeing buffalo plaid EVERYWHERE, so we felt it appropriate to feature some of our must-have items for the holiday season that were buffalo plaid everything! We also featured some holiday party looks including a sequins, statement earrings, and black leggings that of course go with everything no matter the occasion!



The latest issue of River Valley Woman just hit the stands on Friday and our theme this January was outfits for every walk of life! We featured four different looks: work attire, a night out on the town, athleisure, and everyday wear! As we kick off a new year, it’s fun to see some new styles and looks that can bring a fresh new look to our wardrobe and every day life!



Stay tuned in the upcoming River Valley Woman magazines for not only the amazing women that they interview, but also the other businesses in the area that feature their products, services, and support for women throughout the Midwest! You can find the latest issue of River Valley Woman magazine online here, at your local Refinery Boutique, or many other locations throughout Minnesota.
