A new clothing store, Clothed-NMajesty Boutique, has opened in downtown Eatonton and is offering styles for the whole family.

Owner Coletta McWhorter held a ribbon cutting March 7 with a successful turnout of family and guests. The master cosmetologist said she has always been interested in the fashion industry and wanted to own a clothing store but wanted to do something different. That’s why she decided to open a small boutique, choosing a name that originated from a scripture in the Bible.

It was after having worked for eight different salon jobs in 2018 that Coletta decided it was time to branch out and become her own boss.

“I prayed and asked God to lead me in the direction He will have me to go, and He did just that,” McWhorter said, noting that, in less than two weeks, she opened her own business.

The new business owner said she cannot express enough how she is grateful to have family – especially her younger sister, Yentl Peters. “If it wasn’t for her being with me from start to finish, I would be lost,” McWhorter said.

She has three kids – Jitavious Peters, 18; Raymond Morhorn Jr., 15; and Reyonna Farley, 11. McWhorter said that her faith is everything to her and with her trust in God, she knows she can do all things through Christ who strengthens her. She attends Zion Covenant Fellowship Church at 402 South Oak St. in Eatonton where her pastor is the Rev. Fredrick Lowe Jr.

Local leaders, including Mayor Walt Rocker Jr., former-Council Member Alma Stokes, the Rev. Fredrick Lowe Jr., Downtown Eatonton Director Andrew Simpson and Main Street Board members, celebrate with Coletta McWhorter and guests at the Clothed-N-Majesty Boutique ribbon cutting on March 7.

McWhorter decided downtown Eatonton would be the perfect place to start her business because, “there’s not a lot of shopping places in Eatonton and it would give the community a city atmosphere right in the country.”

“Clothed-N-Majesty Boutique will be selling trendy style clothing,” she said, adding that there would be something for the whole family. The Boutique offers casual and dress wear; women’s and men’s and children’s clothing; and purses and accessories.

She has written three books also: “Failure at Marriage,” “Beauty Beneath my Blackness” and “Dysfunctional Family” that she will also be selling.

McWhorter notes a determination to be successful and asks that the community support her – adding that God is her biggest supporter.

Coletta McWhorter and guests join the Rev. Fredrick Lowe Jr., of Zion Covenant Fellowship Church in Eatonton, as he prays a blessing over the new store.

Clothed-N-Majesty Boutique is located in downtown Eatonton at 117 S. Jefferson Ave. Ste. 2, in Briar Alley. Go through the yellow front door, and Clothed-N-Majesty is on the right.
