The store began as a dream for owner, Kim Epprecht, who always had a passion for fashion and shopping. Kim, with her natural-born entrepreneurial and business skills, worked many years as owner of her own public accounting practice and volunteered for many charitable and school organizations, while raising her two wonderful sons. With her second son graduating this May, Kim began searching for her dream job to fulfill what she called her “new life after children” and found Apricot Lane Boutique, which she instantly fell in love with their ideals and of course, the fashion they carried.
Apricot Lane Chagrin Falls is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Chagrin Falls and adds to the charm and uniqueness of this area, that is often visited by many tourists from around the U.S. year round. The newly designed store is approximately 1,600 square feet of celebrity-inspired fashion, designer labels, jewelry, handbags, footwear, and accessories. The store joins 13 other boutiques in Chagrin Falls, but is set apart from the others because it is the only boutique that offers affordable fashion for both mother and daughter of any ages. The store employs both younger and older persons, that not only have a flair and passion for fashion but have retail experience so they are able to assist customers with any fashion needs. The store has new styles on the sales floor almost daily, and Kim is always searching, even in her spare time, for any new items her customers would enjoy. Customers love the trendy fashion in the store, as well as the inexpensive prices and attention they receive when they enter the store. Apricot Lane Chagrin Falls is heavily involved in helping charity groups all over northeast Ohio and has already won many distinctions and awards since opening in May 2014. Apricot Lane Chagrin Falls is truly the hidden gem inside the treasure of Chagrin Falls!
