By 2022, the company was speculated to create revenue of around $4.786 million per year (4). A portion of this revenue comes from the company’s sponsored Instagram posts. It is unknown how much profit these posts generate for Pink Peonies.
However, according to Forbes magazine, certain brands “will pay thousands of dollars for sponsored blog posts, social media posts and appearances” with Pink Peonies (5).

However, on average, clothes designers earn approximately $77,070 per year in Utah. The lowest pay is $30,800 per year, while the highest is $134,300. As Modbe Clothing was not a huge company, it is likely that Parcell’s salary was somewhere between the lowest and median figures (9).
Parcell also worked for DownEast Basics as an accessory designer (10). Similarly, Parcell’s exact salary here is unknown. In Salt Lake City, Utah, an accessory designer is speculated to have an average annual salary of $60,920, starting from the lowest salary of $52,490 and reaching $66,558 at the highest (11).
Parcell currently lives on a property near Salt Lake City, Utah, although the exact address is unknown. The house has approximately three bedrooms and at least two bathrooms. t also features a library, pantry, dressing room, and laundry room (12).

Parcell attended Alta High School in Sandy, Utah. It is unclear what her final grades were, although she is known to have graduated in 2009. As a child, Parcell was interested in fashion, though she originally wanted to be a ballerina.
Following graduation, Parcell studied at Utah State University and originally attempted to get a major in Communications and Public Relations. However, she decided to change her major to Graphic Design after realising that it would allow for greater creativity.
After this, Parcell eventually returned to Communications and Public Relations to graduate faster. During this time, Parcell began designing and sewing her own clothes.
While studying, Parcell began participating in the fashion industry, getting a job as a clothes designer for Modbe Clothing. She also worked for DownEast Basics as an accessory designer.
It was during this time that Parcell began a blog, which she originally started as a hobby.
She originally saw the blog as a way to be more personal with her family, as opposed to the image she portrayed on social media sites like Facebook.
Initially, it was also a way for Parcell to record her first year of marriage by writing articles about things such as their 2010 vacation to Greece.
Parcell also wrote articles about her daily life and interests, including fashion, skincare, and certain beauty lines. In her own words, “I did it originally as a journal, I blogged about my wedding, and then if we went on a vacation, I would post pictures” (15).
However, Utah Valley Brides later featured Parcell’s wedding on the front page of their magazine.
This led to Parcell receiving a number of visitors to her website. As a result, Parcell decided to establish her fashion blog, Pink Peonies and received several requests for affiliate advertising.
In 2015, Parcell was invited to New York Fashion Week and attended the event, indicating her popularity in the fashion industry.
In 2019, Parcell launched her first fashion line with Nordstrom, which was titled the Prettiest Holiday Home Line. The revenue from this is unknown.
However, it is speculated that the line sold out rather quickly, with prices ranging from $26 to $169 per item (16). Following the success of this line, Parcell launched a second line for the spring collection with Nordstrom.
In 2022, Parcell also launched a jewellery line through J. Brooks.
Similarly, the revenue from this is unknown. However, the jewellery range starts from $160 and goes up to $5,900 (17).
Parcell has won several awards over her career. In 2018, she won an award for Social Media Influencer of the Year across Utah. The following year, Utah State University welcomed Parcell back as a guest speaker for its Entrepreneurship Leadership Series.
