C’est La Paire is Chelsea Cortese, Deborah Indelicto and Nicole Mohring’s new shoe store in Yountville’s V Marketplace. As an independent shoe store, C’est La Paire provides affordable and fashionable apparel.

Cortese was adamant that they will be catering “to what locals want at a price point that ranges from $20 – $120. While we have a few high-end boots, most of our shoes are reasonably priceds, appropriate and stylish.”  She went on to say that while most of Yountville is higher priced and tourist based, they want to focus on the local scene and our ‘Napa Style’.”

“We like nice things, but we are practical people,” she said.  “We will offer something for women at every age.”

The trio of ladies hand-picked each brand that will be carried at C’est La Paire. They will be featuring brands such as Sam Edelman, Dolce Vida, Vince Camuto, Corso Como, Chinese Laundry. Mystique. Badgley, Mischka. Matisse, Lucky Brand and Frye.

C’est La Paire is located upstairs at the V Marketplace next to Cortese’s sister store I Elle.

“Our guests will receive the same I Elle experience with a knowledgeable staff, inviting atmosphere and 5-star customer service,” said Cortese.

Inspired by the French phrase C’est La Vie, which means “Such is Life,” the girls chose the name, C’est La Paire.  Come find your pair upstairs at the V-Marketplace.
