The Village at Briarcliff has a new boutique to add to it’s lineup of retail stores: Lillians.
Lillians is a trendy and affordable ladies clothing and accessory boutique. The boutique creates an unforgettable shopping experience as each customer is greeted with coffee and treats, nostalgic music, and smiling, helpful associates.
The Lillians franchise began in 2005 when two sisters opened the first store in Buffalo, Minnesota. They had an idea for a hip and chic shoppe that provided the ultimate shopping experience for women. The name Lillians was inspired by their Grandma Lillian, who taught them about giving and serving others.
“I love that Lillians is a truly comfortable place to shop. Lillians fans love to come by just to hang out! I also love helping women feel good about themselves,” says Angie Leonhart, owner of Lillians of Kansas City.
Leonhart has a passion for people and years of retail experience. She is supported by her husband, who built the racks, tables, and dressing rooms in the shoppe. Her daughter, an aspiring designer, creates the creative window displays. Lillians also has three part-time sales associates and a four-legged greeter named Jed.
Lillians features trendy fashions, including: clothing, handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, scarves, and other fun, “must have” accessories. Through unique vendor relationships, Lillians is able to offer high quality fashions at a reasonable price.
In addition to great buys, the boutique offers “Diva Nights” for customers. “Diva Nights” are private shopping experiences where hostesses and their guests are able to preview and purchase the latest inventory and enjoy discounts, refreshments, massages, and makeovers to complement their shopping experiences. A portion of the sales are donated to the hostesses’ charity of choice.
“I am so excited to be part of Briarcliff! I can’t wait to meet all our returning and new customers and show them our beautiful new space,” says Leonhart.
Lillians will have a soft opening on Wednesday, June 15th and a Grand Re-Opening celebration on Saturday, June 18th from 10-7. Join Lillian’s for the grand opening celebration featuring specials, refreshments, wine by KC Wineworks and live entertainment.
