Brief Store History: When The Pink Paddock opened on 2005 by Owners Kimberly Burton and husband Steven Snyder, the store was in a narrow 500 square foot space, lovingly known as “the bowling alley.” The store has been moved to a beautiful space 3xs the size where their 4 Cavaliers, Hunter, Dillon, Darbey and Hayley have room to roam and their customers room to shop!
Their Lilly Story: Kimberly worked at a Macy’s during college and fell in love with the world of retail and hoped one day to own a retail business of her own. Kimberly always loved the preppy look and Resort Chic lifestyle of Lilly Pulitzer and loved watching the women wearing their Lilly while on yearly trips to Nantucket. When a family member wanted to open a store and carry Lilly, the opportunity presented itself to make one of her dreams come true- the rest, as they say, is history!
Their favorite product from the Summer ’11 delivery is… anything in the Fallin’ in Love print. We have always loved anything Nautical, and the navy and white is just such a crisp summer color combination!
About your town/shopping center: Saratoga Springs is home to the country’s oldest Thoroughbred Race Track, opening in 1864. Among other things, it also features the Yaddo Gardens which has been home to 60 Pulitzer Prize Winning Authors and the summer home to one Pulitzer Prize Winning family we know very well! Lilly’s childhood summer home can be found on North Broadway just a few blocks from the Pink Paddock!
Upcoming/yearly events: The Pink Paddock is the proud sponsor of the annual Whitney Cup at Saratoga Polo. Pink Paddock also participates in all GWP offerings so shop here for your goodies! Kim also hosts lots of parties at Pink Paddock including private shopping events, Chanel Makeup parties, Jewelry parties- you name it! If it can include a little bubbly and Lilly, Kim enjoys making a party of it!!
Our store is unique because…Our owners are busy people! Kim is a full time teacher but still manages to keep her customer’s needs close to her heart each and every day! Customer service is top priority around The Pink Paddock and we always try to go above and beyond. We make home visits for shopping and order delivery. We always have our customer’s best interest at heart. Without our dedicated local customers, we would still be selling clothing out of our bowling alley! Thank you Saratoga fans!!

She is on several honorary and planning committees benefiting various fundraising efforts from the American Cancer Society, to the National Dance Museum, to Saratoga Bridges a resource for community members with disabilities. Kim strongly believes in giving back to the community which she loves so dearly.
