Something Urban is a boutique in Fayetteville, Arkansas located at 643 West Dickson Street. Something Urban is a boutique for everyone! They carry women’s / men’s clothing, as well as home decor & pet products!
When you approach the store front of Something Urban you notice something unique right away. A turquoise ceramic dog bowl that is always filled with water. This bowl shows their love for animals, as well as an invitation for you and your dog to come inside! But do you know just how fur friendly Something Urban is?
The owner of Something Urban is Megan Kelsey, one of the sweetest people I have ever met! Megan grew up in South Arkansas where animals have always been a part of her life. Growing up Megan always had several cats in her home as well as baby bunnies, ducklings, flying squirrels and more!
In 2005 Megan started college at the University of Arkansas where she obtained a degree in Apparel Studies with a minor in business. At this point in time Something Urban was a small boutique located further down Dickson Street by the post office. Megan started working there which became a five year experience! In 2014 the previous owner offered to sell the store to Megan & in February 2014 she became the new owner. Since then Megan has made the boutique more modern, as well as putting her own touch on the store!
Part of revamping Something Urban was incorporating her love for animals. Throughout the store you will find tons of fun animal lover decor! These tail hangers are the perfect example of how Megan has incorporated an animal lovers touch!
Something Urban also sells an assortment of fur friendly merchandise!
Such as fun canvass prints for your home & frames!
To fun matching apparel for you & your dog!
Like their “Home Is Where Your Dog Is” shirts that WE ARE OBSESSED WITH!!!
And even dog collar’s & leashes!
More importantly though are Megan’s efforts to raise shelter awareness & contribute to homeless animals in need. At the counter of Something Urban you will find a jar of dog treats for all of her furry visitors as well as information on the animal adoption drive!
Also displayed is at the counter is a jar for donations to the Humane Society & Spay Arkansas!
“Tails of Love” is proudly sold at Something Urban! For those of you who don’t know, “Tails of Love” is a book filled with pictures & stories about the adoptions from the previous year at the Humane Society of the Ozarks! All of the proceeds are donated to the Humane Society!
Megan is always looking for ways for Something Urban to contribute to our local animals! Last year when the tornado went through Central Arkansas, Megan collected donations for the local animals that were in the need of assistance & medical treatment. She personally drove down and donated the money she raised to the local vets office to provide medical care for the animals affected by the tornado. Something Urban participates in numerous things like the Angel Tree during Christmas for the local shelters, donates to different events (such as the Mulligan Golf Tournament) that benefit homeless animals, fun local dog lover events like the Pup Crawl down Dickson and much much more!
Next time you’re in Northwest Arkansas make sure to stop by Something Urban and check out all the wonderful things they have to offer & meet their store cat Kitty Duchess Marie! A homeless cat that Megan saved off the street when she was a four month old kitten. Once Duchess got the tender love & care she deserved, she became the very spoiled, very fabulous, feline of Something Urban!
