SheSez- Episode 13 with Lisa Kline

In her twenties, Lisa Kline was one of the most successful retailers in Los Angeles, with a store favored by the biggest celebrities of the day on swanky Robertson Boulevard. With each passing year, the business only grew—growth based on Lisa’s uncanny ability to discover little known brands with huge potential. She ultimately owned and operated five trendy boutiques and a budding on-line business. Beginning in 2007 though–everything started to spiral: the writer’s strike put a kibosh on spending, the recession hit and then something much worse. In 2009, Lisa’s husband died in an accident. Overnight, Lisa lost her identity. In this episode, the mother of two shares the story of how she climbed back…. personally and professionally. Hear how she took her skills as a brick and mortar-oriented entrepreneur and highly skilled curator of retail goods and blended them together… ultimately becoming a buyer for some of the most exclusive retail outlets in the world.


Second Act

When the boutique pioneer who put Robertson Boulevard on the map closed shop, some wondered, Where did Lisa Kline go? Here’s the answer.

Ever since Lisa Kline was a fashion-obsessed nine-year-old living in Encino, she dreamed of opening her own clothing store. Diagnosed with scoliosis, she was confined by a back brace and a wardrobe of elastic waistbands, while classmates flaunted the latest designer jeans. “I lived for fashion and couldn’t wear any of it,” says Kline. “I was tortured.” At 25 she opened her first boutique on Robertson Boulevard. Celebrities and label hounds came in droves to the little-known street to snatch up soon-to-break brands. By 2006, she had five stores, all in Los Angeles. Then in 2009, at the height of the recession, her husband died in an accident at their Malibu home and her businesses began to fail. “It was an implosion,” says Kline, who closed all her stores except the men’s shop.
