This week, we are featuring Kiki & Lolli, a darling little boutique run by a mother-daughter duo in Covington, Louisiana.
LE: Tell us your story! What led you to open your boutique?
Kristen Callahan: So my mom and I own the shop together! She has always wanted to open up a children’s boutique, whereas I started off wanting to open a bridal shop. She and I went back and forth on which venture we would dive into and eventually decided that children’s is where our true passion was! We are so in love with owning a small business! We especially love that our customers have become like friends and family to us and we enjoy watching the kiddos that walk through our doors grow up!
LE: When it comes to products, what is your favorite season and why?
KC: My absolute favorite season is Spring!! Being in Louisiana, we are hot 99% of the year and seeing all of the fun bright patterns and colors of spring makes me so excited!
LE: Speaking of seasons, we are in Spring and entering into Summer. How do you enjoy spending your time outside during this time?
KC: I love spring because the weather is perfect for walks around downtown Covington, hanging out by the pool with family and friends, and catching a ride through the golf course with my husband while he plays!
LE: What is your favorite Little English collection or piece? (can be past or present)
KC: My absolute favorite LE piece right now is the Sawyer Sunsuit! I have a 6 month old little boy and I always am grabbing that bubble to put on him!
LE: Why is it important to you that you have classic children’s clothing available in your boutique?
KC: To me, classic children’s clothing is everything! As all mamas know, babies do not keep! Classic children’s clothing makes the short time that is the infant and toddler phase extra special. Sweet heirloom and classic looks that can be passed on from generation to generation is the key to picking out collections for my store.
LE: What is the best way for customers to shop your store right now?
KC: Right now we have a few new ways to shop our store! We currently have our storefront closed but you can always shop via online at kikiandlolli.com or on Instagram & Facebook! We are also available for Facetime appointments Monday, Wednesday & Friday and are also “live” on both Instagram and Facebook every Monday and Thursday! We hope to see y'all there!
