Lisa Ellen Downs

Owner, Ellen’s Bridal & Dress Boutique

Former paralegal Lisa Ellen Downs left the stability of her career to pursue her lifelong love of fashion and open Ellen’s Bridal & Dress Boutique in Wabash, Indiana. Lisa’s business has evolved over the years from a dress consignment shop to a high-end, appointment-only bridal boutique.

After receiving a Small Business Revolution makeover in season 1, Lisa relocated her shop to a bigger location and became an ambassador for the independent bridal shop industry, leading the charge for better pricing from major dress manufacturers.
