discount polo shirts Elliott Lane a unique children’s store for Oxford
The children’s clothing store, which also has gifts and accessories, is owned by two neighbors who wanted to do something fun and special. They thought about it for a while, talked about it for a while, and Elliott Lane is now the result of their planning.
Kari Bailey and Megan Tomes say it’s a store they had been wanting to open for a while. Now that they have, they are excited about it and pleased that people are finding out they are open.
“We’re an upscale, contemporary store for kids,” Bailey said. “We don’t carry things for babies. We focus on things that are stylish, yet age appropriate. We run from size 4 to size 16. That’s anywhere from ages 3 or 4 to ages 14 or 16. Some college girls that are real petite can wear the big girl stuff.”
Bailey said their offerings are some of the same brands that adults can buy in other stores for themselves.
“We carry high end denim and high end brands that other stores carry in their adult lines,” she said. “So they can come in and get the same things for kids.”
Some of the brands are Ella Moss, Splendid, Hudson Denim, Joe’s Jeans, Frye Boots, and Vince.
The store is in a convenient location with plenty of free parking at the new Highland Court. Not too far from the Square or the Ole Miss campus, they are easily accessible for consumers.
“It’s been great,” Tomes said. “We’ve had a good response from people in the community. Everyone tells us, ‘Oxford really needed something like this for kids.’ So it’s been a great start for us.”
“We’re doing something different here,” Bailey said. “Oxford has a great baby store that specializes in babies and traditional baby clothes. We’re more for elementary and middle school girls that are wanting to look their age. They’re ready for moving up to a different age of fashion and what they’re wearing.
“The response has been very positive and is steadily getting better as people find us,” Bailey continued. “Those who have come in say, ‘I can’t wait to tell my friends, or my sister, or my neighbor.’ We’ve had grandmothers come in to shop for their grandchildren, and we’ve had several people from out of town shop with us people from Pontotoc, Tupelo, Water Valley, the Delta.”
