Trendy, 'Ridiculously Affordable' Designer-Inspired Handbags and Seasonal Accessories will be Available to Local Fashionistas Starting Thursday, March 5th!

PLYMOUTH, Minn., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Lillians(TM), the Hippest Shoppe in Town(R), today announced the opening of two new franchise locations in Sauk Rapids, Minn.(621 N. Benton Dr., Ste. 104), and Boerne, Texas (518 River Rd.).

These new shoppes will celebrate their grand opening sales March 5-8, offering local women the latest looks in fashion accessories at "ridiculously affordable" prices. The shoppes are owned by two mother-daughter teams: Kristy Torgrimson and Cheryl Stueven in Sauk Rapids, and Tammy and Megan Otten in Boerne. This is the 17th location in the state of Minnesota, and the first in Texas.

Like all 27 Lillians shoppes, these new franchises will feature hundreds of designer-inspired handbags, fun flat wallets, stylish sunglasses, trendy jewelry and other seasonal items. They will follow the brand's unique "occasional sale" concept opening its doors the first Thursday through Sunday each month year-round.

About the Lillians Experience

Guests entering a Lillians shoppe are not only greeted by the owner's friendly smile, but also by the familiar sounds of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. After meandering around the shoppe, it becomes obvious by the wide variety of "priced-within-your-means" handbags and wallets, fun and funky jewelry, fashionable scarves and variety of other seasonal items, that this is a shopping experience like no other!

If the sights and smells aren't enough, the sound of ringing bells and women laughing simply adds to the atmosphere of craziness and fun. One bell is rung when a free handbag (up to $30 value) is earned; an oversized cow bell is rung with a special announcement - "Ladies...there's a man in the store!"

Finally, each month Lillians guests can host their own private shopping parties called "Diva Nights(TM)." At these events, each group gets a preview of the month's hot new inventory, indulges in complimentary light appetizers, and enjoys a bit of pampering with complimentary salon services.
