Lille Boutique Opens Second Location
On Friday, May 13, 2011 from 12pm to 6pm, Lille Boutique will be celebrating the Grand Opening of its second location, “Lille Trousseau,” at 1124 SW Alder, right next door to The English Department. Like its East Side outpost, the West End Lille will focus on high-end lingerie with an emphasis on vintage-inspired, independent design and natural fibers. However, the new location will have a distinct Bridal focus, hence the name “trousseau,” which refers to the custom of bundling honeymoon garments, linens, and lingerie, often in a hope chest, for a bride to bring into her marriage.
Featured designers will include Stella McCartney, Eberjey, Zinke, Yasmine Eslami, Carine Gilson, Rituel, Huit, Wolford, Eres, Hanro, Brulee, La Perla, Stephanie Loungewear, Aloe Loungewear, Nina Ricci, Phillip Lim, and Remix Vintage Shoes.
Lille Trousseau will be open 11-6pm Tuesday through Saturday, with private appointments available upon advance request on Sunday. It will also be available for private bridal shower parties after hours. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Lille Trousseau” in the subject line.
