“Success is only meaningful and enjoyable if it feels like your own.” — Michelle Obama, Former First Lady of the United States of America
OWNING THE MOMENT
DALLAS — Sixty seconds.
That’s all the time Marquiesha Davis needed to make her presence felt as a newcomer to this ever-so-competitive entrepreneurship industry.
To her distinctly unique credit, she made a rather emphatic, resounding statement by way of her one-minute commercial for Cherry Blossom Bits & Pieces, which debuted on various message boards and social media platforms in mid-September.
For Davis, a native of Memphis, while such a commercial ad was brief in content, it lasted long enough to attract a slew of viewers — nearly 5,000 spectators to date, to put it more precisely.
Davis’ Cherry Blossom Bits & Pieces is a Memphis-based luxury resale online boutique that will make its ceremonious launch on October 27 which, ironically, falls on Davis’ 32nd birthday.

For Davis, her rise to emerging as a Corporate America professional-turned-entrepreneur comes amid humble beginnings.
Most importantly for Davis, a Memphis Central High graduate, her quest for establishing a credible business had been in the works for some time, considering she’s always been equipped with a keen passion for the latest line of women’s fashion.
“Fashion has always been my passion, so to have the opportunity to bring in a new way of shopping for luxury items without breaking the bank was a win-win (situation) for me,” Davis told Making Headline News during a recent interview from Memphis. “This new way of shopping is suitable for all ages.”
A newly-erected online boutique that caters to consumers nationwide, Davis’ Cherry Blossom Bits & Pieces is a ravishing hub for a wide range of name brand purses and other accessories, mostly Michael Kors, Coach, Gucci, Kate Spade, MCM, Burberry, Christian Louboutin, and Tiffany & Co., among other distinctive labels.
Like many aspiring entrepreneurs who have appropriately assumed the “business owner” label in the wake of this unprecedented global pandemic, Davis relishes the fact that she steadfastly stepped out on faith to ensure that her new venture comes to fruition.
“My inspiration (for starting a business) was personal for me,” Davis, a married mother of two, said of her mission for establishing her online boutique. “(My children) boost my drive to follow my passion and to own it”
Much to her delight, Davis’ awe-inspiring journey to starting a business was accompanied in large part by a solid supporting cast, one that was spearheaded by her husband of nearly five years, her mother — an entrepreneur in her own right — her siblings, and a host of relatives, close acquaintances, and well-wishers.

“My support system is strong, and for that alone, I’m grateful,” Davis said.
A business that is in its infancy stages, Davis’ primary objective, she said, is to customarily implement the essential entrepreneurial strategies that will enable her to achieve her customer service goals and objectives, all the while having an immediate impact in what undoubtedly is a competitive fashion industry.
“I now have the opportunity to allow others to buy high-end luxury merchandise at a reasonably affordable cost, especially women,” Davis said. “Lord knows we love finer things.”
And don’t get it twisted, Davis hinted, particularly as it pertains to the authenticity of her products.
“All of my items are 100 percent authentic…brand new,” Davis says without hesitation.
An accomplished certified medical assistant whose career spans more than a decade, Davis in Fall 2007 enrolled at Southwest Tennessee Community College, where she spent one full academic year before she elected to assume a trade in the medical field.
Consequently, Davis enrolled at Anthem Career College, where she ultimately acquired her diploma to become as a full-fledged medical assistant.
Then in March of this year, Davis had become the beneficiary of her business license, a much-anticipated feat that eventually led to the startup of Cherry Blossom Bits & Pieces.
Talk about basking in the glory of every bit and piece of the moment.
“Always follow your dreams,” Davis said. “Allow your faith to be stronger than your fears.”
Even if it takes just 60 seconds.
