You can take the girl out of the city but not the city out of the girl — and for Evoke Style’s proprietor Sandra Dollard, at right, the city of Albany is who she is.
“I came from Albany. I know Albany,” she says, dismissing the idea of envisioning her shop anywhere else in the Capital Region — although she did just open another Evoke Style shop in Rhinebeck.
Dollard '10 grew up in Albany with her two sisters and one brother, all of whom have remained in the area. She went away to college for one year (“I had a checkered college career,” she admits) before returning to Albany, where she managed her first clothing store at the age of 20 and then was an interior designer for 17 years at Stickley, Audi & Co.
Sandra Dolllard is a 2010 graduate of Empire State College who received her B.S. in business, management and economics from the Northeast Center.
