As the owner of the fashionable SHE, a boutique in Bloomfield Hills, Sharon Eisenshtadt's calling card is her personalized service and impeccable appearance, which she owes to her "village" of knowledgeable beauty pros, a select group of proven beauty products, and to practicing Vinyasa yoga with her husband about five times per week.
For over six years, savvy Bloomfield Hills shoppers have come to rely on the luxury clothing store SHE to deliver a shopping experience usually only found in cities like New York or Los Angeles.
“We set out to create a niche — a beautiful contemporary and designer store with a focus on personalized service,” says owner Sharon Eisen- shtadt. “By offering a variety of price points along with a personal shopping experience, we believe that we offer something for everybody, in an ap- proachable boutique setting.”
As the daughter of a former longtime Chrysler executive, Eisenshtadt’s personal taste in automobiles has grown out of a deep connection to the American car industry. Her first vehicle was a white 1990 Dodge Daytona with a sunroof, given to her by her parents for graduation.
“I remember driving around the block with friends for hours at a time, listening and singing along to a cassette mix of B-52s, Madonna, Elvis Costello, and Elton John,”Eisenshtadt recalls.
In recent years, Eisenshtadt’s passion for American cars has grown even more with the challenges the auto industry has faced in Detroit.

“Glamour, menswear with a feminine twist and bling all the way down to your shoes,” is how Sharon Eisenshtadt, retail fashion expert and owner of SHE in Bloomfield Hills, sums up the overall feeling of the fall 2012 styles.
The metro Detroit native got started in the retail industry almost 25 years ago, when she worked at Bivouac in Ann Arbor. From there, Eisenshtadt’s career took her to managerial positions at department stores, most significantly as director of personal shopping at Marshall Field’s, where she helped dress hundreds of customers.

Fashion style: Classic contemporary. “The core base of my wardrobe is classic,” she says. “I throw in trends with accessories. You can usually find me in a little black dress.”
Favorite shop: She, of course. “Even though I’m in New York a lot, I always try to shop locally,” she says. “If I see something in New York I want, I’ll call Saks in Troy to have them get it for me.”
Favorite designers: Yigal Azrouel, Catherine Malandrino, and Velvet
Fashion debut: “I’ve always liked girly clothes. I would never wear jeans and sweatshirts. In high school I used to wake up ready to dress for success. I felt better, got better grades, and now I have transferred that to my work ethic.”
Fashion advice: “Seek and purchase styles that you love. Stick to interpretations of your own personal style.”
The owner of SHE, a hip designer clothing and accessories boutique, which opened in August in Bloomfield Township, Sharon Eisenshtadt is a busy mom of two kids, ages 9 and 11, and is married to Howard, also known as the “H” in SHE’s acronym.
