Angelique Palumbo Weiser

Angelique Palumbo Weiser attributes her business brain to her father (who owns Terminix New Orleans) and her irrefutable sense of style to her mother. Whatever talent she was born with, she has created a fashion empire that leads the city. With three stores Uptown, she has just opened a fourth in Lakeview and renovated a building on Maple Street. Somehow Angelique finds time to support numerous philanthropic efforts, local schools and civic projects. “Entrepreneurship and giving back to the community is in my blood,” she says. “I also have the support of my parents and children, my incredible husband Kurt (of Uptown Athletics Club), my stepmom Jackie, who owns Earthsavers and my partner Heather. I can’t help but be inspired every day.”
