Some call me stubborn. Some call me Crazy. Some even call me …. other things…. but usually when I get an idea in my head it is SO hard for me to shake it free.
A few years ago, back in Sandpoint ID, I was annoyed that the closest baby fair event to us was in Spokane. To me that did not make any sense. Here was a town with a LOT of moms and we all had to travel for baby and maternity items. FINALLY… a childrens store had opened up and at that moment I made it my mission to bring a Baby Fair Event to Sandpoint. I believe it was a small town success!
Now that I have relocated to Dickinson, I see the same things.. There are a ton of moms out here and we are all struggling on things to do. After all- the parks seem to get boring after a while. I have all these ideas….. and I just can’t shake them.
Inspired by a photog fave of mine, I thought it would be cool to showcase local businesses, events, and things to do here in Dickinson. SO here is my first “THE NEST” post.
I can not say enough WONDERFUL things about this store. I LOVE IT!!! Cami- the owner is so incredibly awesome to be around. As a mom of 5 kids, I am less then perfect for all those teen outfits. But here at Lillians, I can find something that doesn’t look like “mom” clothes- if you know what I mean.
The first time I had my shopping experience here I was clueless on what would look good on me with my flat chested- mommy pudge-tummy. But sweet Cami came to my side to rescue and helped me get the perfect clothes for MY body. She was honest and blunt (thank you!!) and knew right away what would work and what wouldn’t. Surprisingly it was things I would NEVER imagine to try on, but this girl knows how to make a momma feel special!
This store is not only FASHIONABLE, its fun, colorful, exciting and hard to leave without a purple Lillians shopping bag!
I now have a nice collection of sexy, adorable, fun clothing pieces… One if even a jean skirt that I swore I would never look good in… well… until I shopped at Lillians- that is!
Oh…. don’t forget to check out ALL the amazing accessories she has all around the store. I was able to finally purchase one of her bags and I get SOOOO many compliments on it. ACK! I Love this store!!!
As of RIGHT NOW- Lillians is open every Thursday- Sunday. But make sure you stop in often because things DO NOT stay on the shelves long and there are always new things up on the racks- which makes it so hard to stay away!
Here is more info about Lillians:
Walk into a Lillians Shoppe and you will hear bells ringing, women applauding and yelling ‘FREE handbag!’, or even ‘Man in the store!’ What’s not to love about bells going off, one purchase at a time, as someone cashes in their Lillians punch card for FREE merchandise? You’ll find hot coffee and sweet treats while Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra serenade you. The volume between the beloved crooners and the Lillians shoppers can be difficult to divide, but when the day is done, “That’s Amore” and “I’ve Got the World on a String” seems appropriate when asked to describe the Lillians experience.
Open only select days each month, Lillians features ridiculously affordable fashion, handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, scarves, and other fun “must have” accessories – great fashion and accessory labels you’ll find at boutiques and department stores but at incredible Lillians prices! Each month we showcase fabulous new merchandise during our limited open dates.
Lillians began in 2005 when two enterprising sisters, Cindy Dueser and Sue Olmscheid, opened the first Lillians in Buffalo, Minnesota. Some said they were crazy when they had the idea for a really hip and chic shoppe for women – where the Shoppes are not open every day and yet still provide a shopping experience of a lifetime. A tall order? Not so. Lillians combines the perfect ingredients that women have been waiting for; a high-touch and fun shopping experience like no other.
Lillians shoppes began with a 4-day sale concept open either the first or second Thursday through Sunday each month. To better serve our guests and make it easier to get their “Lillians fix” every month many Shoppes have added “Second Chance” sales, open an extra day or two the weekend following their 4-day sale; and a “Sneak Peek”, open a few hours one evening before their 4-day sale for an opportunity to purchase and preview hot new merchandise each month. Several Shoppes are now open every weekend as well. Please click on “Find a Shoppe” for specific open dates and hours at each location.
So all you moms…. give yourself a treat- leave the kids at home, grab your friend and do some shopping!! After you are done, grab that peaceful cup of coffee or tea you have been dreaming about!
