Starting last year, many retail chains closed and many more most likely will not survive this year either. Even though we are reading and seeing many of the major retail brands closing or downsizing from the impacts of internet shopping, the economy, etc, Apricot Lane Boutiques are growing!
By being locally owned, we preserve our one-of-a-kind shopping experience and distinctive character. Also, being locally owned means each store location is selecting merchandise based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own individual interests and the needs of their local customers. This guarantees a much broader range of product choices for our customers. A marketplace made up of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.
Here at Apricot Lane Boutique, we train to provide exceptional customer service which build strong relationships within the community. This helps to sustain vibrant town centers, linking neighbors and creating social relationships which keeps customers coming back. A personal stylists that is helpful can always make a girl feel good when shopping for a special event or outing!
Our boutiques offer an easy to shop in "boutique" environment without the "boutique" prices. Our buyers stay up on the latest fashion trends and offer a wide selection of merchandise straight from market. Our store owners visit the top fashion trade shows every year and always have the latest in apparel, footwear, accessories.

Why Apricot Lane
Where We Are Now
Mark and I are approaching our fourth holiday season in the retail business. Just like any other new adventure, there have been ups and downs along the way, but each year we find ourselves more organized and more excited. Having an amazing sales team is of utmost importance in making sure our store is running smoothly. I’ve always loved working with women and young girls, so having the opportunity to manage our sales team has been such a great time – and definitely never boring! Building and maintaining relationships with customers is Apricot Lane Wichita’s number one goal. We love our “regulars” and make it a point to welcome each and every person into our store with a smile and a greeting. It is our goal to make every single customer feel appreciated.
