Owner, Nancy Alinovi has always loved fashion. Growing up in New York with a father in the garment business was the beginning of this adoration. Nancy learned at an early age the joy and fun that “dressing” can bring. As a child, she devoured various catalogues and magazines and now Nancy can be heard proudly proclaiming that since the age of nineteen, she has never missed an issue of Vogue.
Nancy worked in the jewelry industry in New York City for over ten years before she and her husband started their family and then relocated to Cary.
Always an appreciator of a bargain and of well made and innovative clothing (not to mention the fan of more than a few high end designers), Nancy had a dream to open wonderful glamorous boutiques featuring high end designer resale and this is how ADORE was born.
Nancy via ADORE has also been involved in various non-profit and charity fashion events in the triangle area. She has also been honored to juror for fashionSPARK and regularly for NCState School of Textile runway shows. She also writes and styles various fashion editorials in local magazines.
Dedicated managers Mary Lou and Allison have been with the ADORE team since before the doors opened in 2009 and they along with the rest of the fabulous staff are like a big family. And we surely can’t leave out the Cary, Preston Corners’ mascot, Harry the cat.
