There’s a fabulously chic boutique in downtown Chilliwack – have you been? It’s called Lolly’s Fashion Lounge and we absolutely love it! Kersh, Miss Me, D.E.P.T, Press – these brands and many more are all found at this charming Chilliwack clothing shop. The store is bright, the selection is fantastic and it’s here in the Fraser Valley! Ladies – it’s one to put on your list, for sure.
Owner Lois has a strong background is in all areas of retail. For years she dreamed of opening her own clothing store and in 2000 she opened Lolly’s on Vedder Road in Chilliwack. Originally Lolly’s exclusively sold maternity wear. As time went on, they added some non-maternity styles and in 2005 made the change completely to a hip and trendy ladies fashion boutique. Why the change? Lois admitted that she loved the maternity wear and chatting with the expectant Moms, but once they were finished having babies, she didn’t get to see them anymore! Building relationships and socializing with her customers is her favourite part of Lolly’s, so the change was the right move.
In July 2009, Lolly’s Fashion Lounge moved to historic downtown Chilliwack. Lois says it was a fantastic move and they are loving being involved in the downtown Chilliwack community. Their new space is more than triple the size of the old location; it’s a gorgeous bright space right on Wellington Avenue. Although the space is much larger, the cozy inviting feeling of Lolly’s has remained. The staff are super helpful, the selection is vast and the store’s decor is just… happy!
Lolly’s carries a great selection of clothing, accessories and jewelry. Mina UK, Cookie Johnson, Miss Me, Mexx, Jag, D.E.P.T, Kersh – you’ll find all these brands and more. Until the past few years, these designer names, let alone a chic and trendy boutique, are not what we’ve been used to finding in the Fraser Valley. This darling Chilliwack boutique would not be out of place in Yaletown (minus the city price tags). But we’d like to keep it here in the Fraser Valley – don’t go getting any ideas, Lois! Hee hee!
You’ll have to visit Lolly’s Fashion Lounge sometime soon to check out the fabulous Spring and Summer fashions. Lois and long-time employee Les (who Lois refers to as ‘the best thing about Lolly’s’ – awww) are an absolute riot and they will be happy to help you find something stylish and comfortable. They helped Brianna find some funky Spring dresses last month; what fun that was!
