Meet Melissa

Owner, grace+GRIT

Life is a beautiful gift.  It’s not always easy, but every day is a new opportunity for living well and being grateful.  ‘Grace and Grit’ was my mantra when I was battling breast cancer and honestly, it helped.  A lot.  For me, it was about positivity, strength and just being my best every day, no matter what that looked like.  Only later did I realize that this mantra would carry me through literally anything.  I genuinely can’t think of a situation where a little grace and a little grit doesn’t make a difference- think really challenging yoga poses, sticky parenting dilemmas, lofty goals, scary news, awkward conversations and the list goes on and on. 


Enter my lifelong dream of opening my own store and the name seemed especially fitting. My goal is simply to make people feel good in the clothes they wear.  I want grace+GRIT to be your go-to shopping destination for high quality, high performance fitness apparel and also soft, cozy athleisure wear to carry you from your sweaty workout through your busiest days. I am constantly on the hunt for emerging designers and philanthropic, eco-friendly companies to offer you men’s and women’s attire that inspires you to be your best every day.  Because after all, when you look good, you feel good.  And when you feel good, there’s no stopping you.  That’s what grace+GRIT is all about.  


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.  And please, when you’re out doing cool things or just being you in your grace+GRIT, be sure to post a picture on social media and tag us @graceandgritshop with #graceandgritsighting.
