With the onslaught of warm weather, cool breezes and salty beach air charming us out of our winter sweats, one mustn’t forget to keep the whole family in style. Parents can find affordable, handmade outfits for their new bundles of joy and toddlers at Lily Aiden Designs of Warren.
Mommy/daughter duo Cheryl and Shannon are working together to create adorable dresses, headbands and sweet tulle skirts for girls. They are also working to expand upon their line of boys’ clothing, which features items such as a classic “MOM” tattoo beanie and dapper bowties. (Oh and the best part: they take custom orders!)
“We’re pretty crafty,” Shannon says. “We get people coming in with custom fabrics for blankets, hats, you name it.” Shannon’s own children, who the boutique is named after, romp around in the shop’s fashions and provide most of the inspiration for her, and her mother’s, designs; making this truly a family business.
One of their best selling items is a versatile baby-wrap that doubles as a chic scarf for mom, “We get people ordering this in every color!” Cheryl says, laughing, “and we try to make sure that every item we make [for girls] has a shabby-chic flower on it. It’s our style.” Shannon and her mother made the move from Etsy to direct selling at the boutique this past April, aiming to give their customers instant gratification over mailing out items. Lily Aiden Designs will be having a grand opening on June 27, and are already working on outfits for the Fourth of July.
