Our Story

Since 1980, Bella Rose has been offering customers a personal shopping experience with knowledgeable sales associates and a family-like atmosphere. As store-owner Betty Spain often says, we want you to "kick your shoes off and stay a while" as we not only outfit you for life's special occasions, but keep your everyday wardrobe stylish and updated. We look at each and every customer as a part of our Bella Rose family, and we want to be there for all of life's magical moments big and small - from birthdays, weddings and graduations to that special first date. Whether you're in the market for a show stopping gown or just a new favorite sweater, stop by #AtTheCorner today and let us welcome you to the family!
When store-owner Betty Spain opened up shop over 40 years ago, her goal was to bring "big city fashion" to the "small town" of Lexington, right here at the corner of Maxwell and Upper. Betty has always said that Bella Rose has something for women in every stage of life: mothers, daughters, grandmothers and everyone in-between. Betty attributes much of her success to her wonderful staff, and now runs the store alongside her daughter, Haley Williams. The dynamic duo work side by side each season to ensure 'big-city fashion' makes its way to Lexington and into your closet.
