Owner Sarah Thompson-Kreisler is here to tell you why customers drive all the way from Canada to get their Lilly fix from her!

We opened our doors originally in May 2009 as a Lilly Pulitzer Specialty Boutique. In January 2010, we debuted as a Signature Store and I couldn’t have done it without my amazing staff! Suzi Preston is the store manager who so many of you know and love and Gabi Foxa, Marva Sinclair, Elizabeth Penman, Caroline Auffenberg and Catherine Cislo are the best team of part-time Sales Associates a shop owner could ask for.  Thank you, ladies!

My Lilly Story: I have loved Lilly most of my life. I saved my first babysitting job money when I was 12 to purchase a Lilly wrap skirt! I love the bright colors and bold prints.

Our favorite product from the Summer ’11 delivery is… We can’t choose just one! We love everything in the Skinny Dippin’ print, Dark & Stormy and the navy Reeve dress!

We love our store location!: The very quaint shopping area in the Village of Grosse Pointe is just a few blocks away from beautiful Lake St. Clair.

Upcoming events: We have an upcoming MYSTERY BOX Promotion, Sidewalk Chalk Facebook Photo Contest, Blow-out Sidewalk Sale last weekend of July, and Block Party in September!

One of our favorite customer stories: We have the best customers. Many of them are always offering to help us out. Our first Christmas Eve open, we were a little overwhelmed with packages to wrap so several customers stayed to help us- we will never forget that!

Our store is unique because… We open special hours by private appointment, we make house calls, we offer home delivery, personal shopping, and gift wrapping.  We also track down sizes and wish lists – we truly know our clients

Did you know… Our town (and store) is actually North of Canada! (I didn’t know this until I moved here myself!) Customers drive from as far as Toronto to shop at our store!
