After her divorce from Elvis in 1973, Priscilla established her clothing boutique in Los Angeles. The business closed in 1976, and in 1979, she became the executor of Graceland estate in trust for their daughter Lisa Marie, following the death of Elvis in 1977.

The vast Elvis estate required about $500,000 annual upkeep, which she could not afford, and the other option was to sell it. However, she decided to hire CEO Jack Soden to convert the estate into a tourist attraction in 1982. The venture turned lucrative and is currently the second most visited historic home after the White House.

She later became the chairlady and president of Elvis Presley Enterprises until her daughter turned 21. The venture was a success, and its worth grew to over $100 million. She expanded her business by launching a range of linen and fragrances.
