OVICH Boutique , Skippack PA
WINNER, Best Online Retailer
4038 W Skippack Pike, Skippack PA 19474 /(610) 590-9424 /Ohvich@gmail.com/https://ovichboutique.com/home/
Lasandra Kapetanovich and her husband, Karlos, are the owners of OVICH BOUTIQUE. OVICH BOUTIQUE (OVICH LLC) was founded in 2019. Starting as a perfume company, OVICH has since expanded to a women’s boutique which retails women’s clothing, shoes, skincare, and candles. The progression of OVICH from perfume company to boutique is similar to Lasandra’s own personal journey. Shortly before the inception of her fragrance, Lasandra was diagnosed with 2A, grade 3 breast cancer. The prescribed treatment was surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Rather than remaining devastated by the diagnosis, Lasandra decided to improve her mental state by creating her own perfume. According to Lasandra, every woman’s choice of fragrance creates a story of who they are or who they want to become. Since perfume had always been an integral part of Lasandra’s beauty routine, she and Karlos decided to go to New York City to design their own perfume. “Lady K35”.
Lasandra channeled this strength and perseverance when she opened her boutique during a pandemic. Like her cancer journey, opening OVICH was full of uncertainty. However, Lasandra was guided by her passion for self-expression through beauty. OVICH quickly expanded to a storefront operation. Though fashion doesn’t define a person, it creates a unique platform for which one can express themselves while also lifting their mood and confidence. Lasandra recalled that, during her treatment, she made it a point to get dressed everyday no matter how she felt emotionally and physically. Lasandra attributes this routine and her positive outlook to one of the major reasons she is now in remission. Lasandra expressed a similar hope that the merchandise found at OVICH will allow people to also feel bold, confident, and empowered.

Our services include but are not limited to transportation, light housekeeping, laundry, meal prep, errands, social and mental stimulation, doctor’s visits, social outings, personal care, and more.

We are a client-focused company providing engaging care from the moment we walk in, until the moment we
leave. A national poll on Healthy aging finds that about a third of seniors are LONELY. Aging brings many difficult changes that contribute to isolation and loneliness. Loss of friends, family members, poor health, life changes, and transportation challenges can mean isolation for older adults. Isolation can lead to loneliness, which can have a devasting effect on a senior’s health and quality of life. Research suggests that the best
interventions are those that involve meaningful and social contact. SILC prides itself on our reliable, professional, personable and compassionate
companions. We are friends, advocates, and confidants who build meaningful relationships with our clients, and their families, so that as the aging process progresses, so can the amount of care.
