Meet the Team

Owner

Brooke Leno

From a young age, my heart was set on fashion and retail. I went to school at the University of Minnesota with no question that my degree would be in Retail Merchandising. Right after graduation I moved back home and opened Out of Town in hopes to share my passion with the people I love the most.

Nine years later, here I am, living my best life as a mama, wife + business owner! My babe is 2 now and he is busy, which means that most of the time I'm running around like a crazy person while dressed in camo joggers and a band tee ... there's also a good chance there is a jacket involved. Basics are my jam and I love me some layers. Layers are an easy way to elevate your look and add a little edge to whatever you've got on!

Need some help picking the best pieces for your busy lifestyle? We're pretty chill over here, plus our team is the best … we've totally got you, girl.

Manager - Dickinson, ND

Melanie Reker

I’m the Store Manage of our Dickinson location.  Retail has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember, and I decided to make it my career when I went to UW-Stout to study Retail Merchandising. 

I moved out to North Dakota with my husband 5 years ago from Wisconsin.  Outside of work, you can usually find me in the kitchen cooking all of my favorite foods with my husband, taking our black lab, Riza, out for walks, or taking care of my garden! 

When it comes to my wardrobe, I am always in jackets and jeans with some sort of leopard accent! I believe everyone needs some leopard print in their life, it just helps add that extra touch of sass to every outfit.

I'm the Store Manager of the Bismarck location! I love working for Out of Town because you can find styles that will elevate your current closet, while also keeping your budget in mind.  

I think it is important to invest in high quality timeless pieces you will wear often, like quality jewelry, the perfect fitting pair of jeans, basic tees and jackets, because those are the styles that will last you a lifetime. 

You will typically find me in layered gold jewelry, but my style encompasses many vibes and is always changing.  Western one day, street style the next. I love helping clients find their vibe + pieces that truly speak to them. Connecting people to product that makes sense for them by building outfits around key closet staples is my specialty.
