Giving Back

Our Apricot Lane Boutiques take pride in being active in our local communities to help make a positive impact and difference. We are more than just a boutique, we are a boutique with a cause! Each independently owned and operated franchise is encouraged to get involved in causes they are passionate about in their respective communities. While local stores have much flexibility to choose their cause and support, we as the franchise company, Country Visions, Inc. has chosen the issue of Human Trafficking as our primary cause and mission. The partners of Country Visions established a 501c3 non-profit called, 3Strands - who's mission is to combat human trafficking through sustainable employment, education and engagement initiatives. We are empowering a worldwide community to combat human trafficking through our growing community of individuals, organizations, corporations and non-profits working together. Please help us fight this evil of Human Trafficking by joining the fight at
Together we can make a difference! The mission of 3Strands, a California-based 501(c)3, is to unite and mobilize a global community of individuals and organizations to combat human trafficking through sustainable employment, education and empowerment initiatives. The organization has been historically supported through the sale of handmade bracelets created at the employment centers in Cambodia, Nepal and Haiti, community member pledges, events and corporate sponsorships. 3Strands sells handcrafted products, with 100% of the profits of the product sales going directly to support victims of human trafficking. Through the sale of every 3Strands bracelet created in Cambodia and Nepal, funds are raised to help empower, teach and employ young women. Country Visions, Inc. and Apricot Lane Boutiques are proud to support such an incredible, worthy cause. 3Strands bracelets can be found online and in many of our stores!
