About Us

After many years of having the ultimate job---a stay at home mom, I’ve decided to add to my dream job and pursue my love for fashion. Opening a boutique has always been a dream of mine. I come from a family of many businesses. My grandmother owned and operated a women’s and children’s clothing store for 58 years and proudly ran it until she was 95 years old. My mom and aunt were co-owners of a specialty boutique during my high school years. The excitement I experienced opening shipments, steaming clothes, and pricing new merchandise made choosing a college major easy! I attended Bauder Fashion College in Atlanta Georgia, and graduated from Marshall University with a BA in Fashion Merchandising. My parents currently own and operate two businesses in Hinton,West Virginia. My mom adores her flower shop, Hinton Floral & Gift, and recently celebrated her 47 years in business. My dad has owned Pivont Funeral Home for 28 years and my only brother, Lee helps run the business.

I have been married to my wonderful husband Ted, for 27 years whom I met one summer in North Myrtle Beach, SC. We have two daughters Payton and Landry and son Quest. We have lived in West Virginia, Kentucky, and now reside in Wake Forest, North Carolina.  

My daughters and I have always shared the same passion for fashion, and decided to turn a dream into reality! In 2017 we created The Leaf Boutique, an online fashion site offering trendy clothing at affordable prices. In 2019 we renovated a bus and added a mobile to our brand. In April of 2022 we really for it rebranded to Leaf The Label (LTL) and opened a brick and mortar in Wake Forest, NC - just 25 min from downtown Raleigh. Leaf The Label is excited to share its seasonal styles and trends with our customers! Thank y’all for shopping with us!

Lots of love ♥,
Autumn, Payton, and Landry
