Since March of 2014, Lily and Sparrow Boutique has found its business in a Maple Street home adjacent to a hair salon. This month, the boutique and the hair salon will continue to be neighbors, just at a different location.
“Fishers is redeveloping the area, so we started to look for a new location,” said Steph Miller, who co-owns Lily and Sparrow with her sister, Jen. “We are moving to The Edge, the new Community Health building around 116th Street and Lantern Road. Everything worked itself out to find a little space there. The hair salon we are attached to will be right beside us again, so it was the best scenario.”
The new space is a few hundred square feet larger than the current location at 11720 Maple St., and Miller said the space is more industrial. More gift-like items will be offered during the holiday season because the new location has more space for shelving.
“We are trying to make it as similar as the space is now to keep the same feel but give it a nice update and use what we learned for what works and what doesn’t for displays and put that in the new space,” Miller said. “It has a different feel, more industrial with open ceilings. Right now, we are in a house, so it will feel a little bit different, but we are trying to keep it as similar as we can.”
The boutique has a tentative opening date for the first week of November, but Miller said she and her sister want to do the process correctly and not rush, so it may end up a bit later. Customers are encouraged to keep updated on the opening date via the boutique’s social media outlets.
The boutique specializes in clothing but also offers shoes, jewelry, accessories and gift items near the holidays.
