Hi, I'm Catherine!
MY TEAM AND I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!
Monkee's was opened in 2008 in downtown Fredericksburg and I started that same year as a sales associate. 2008 was a big year! I graduated from Longwood University, moved to Fredericksburg, married Tim the love of my life and started working at Monkee's in October.
After starting at Monkee's as a sales associate in October 2008, I soon became the Manager and Buyer. In 2013, my mentor and the previous store owner decided to sell the business. I remember coming home crying to Tim that I never wanted to do anything else. A town that I was worried would never feel like home had embraced me with open arms and I just wanted to continue to help my clients look and feel their best.
Tim and I feel extremely lucky to have purchased the business in July 2013 and are proud to continue to bring designer fashion and customer focused service to historic downtown Fredericksburg.
As a third-generation retail shop owner,
YOU COULD SAY RETAIL IS IN MY BLOOD
My grandfather opened a hardware store in Roanoke, VA when he returned from WWII and my father became part owner before I was born. At an early age I spent my free time at the store "helping". I saw the pride my father and grandfather had in helping people, giving back to the community and the joy they found in running their own business.
It feels as though things have come full circle now as I watch my daughter and son stop by the store to "help" Mommy at work.
My team and I are incredibly thankful for all of our customers support of Monkee's over the years. We look forward to many more years of fashion, fun and friendship in Fredericksburg!
Tim and I are thankful everyday for our amazing team, including our long time employee Tara.
Tara started working at Monkee's in high school and was promoted to Manager and Buyer after graduating from Liberty University in 2020.
Her contribution to Monkee's has played a key role in Monkee's success over the past 7 years!
Hi, I'm Tara!
Hi! My name is Tara Mudd and I’m the Manager and Buyer for Monkee’s of Fredericksburg. I’ve been on the Monkee’s team since 2016. I started working at Monkee’s directly out of high school and worked throughout college. My favorite part about working at Monkee’s of Fredericksburg is being able to help women find the perfect outfit for every part of life.
I also enjoy getting to know so many new faces and building relationships with all of our customers. Some of my favorite brands at Monkee’s include Hutch, Tory Burch, Amanda Uprichard, and Crosby. In my free time I enjoy boating, skiing, and spending time with my family. I can’t wait to help everyone with their future purchases!
