About Lemonade Couture

Lemonade Couture is a small family owned and run online modern baby and children’s boutique, for girls and boys in newborn to 14 year sizes. We specialize in unique gifts, photography props, comfortable fun clothing with good design, cool organic cotton clothing, pettiskirts, tutus, headbands, and personalized baby gifts. A lot of the offerings at Lemonade Couture are made in the U.S. Lemonade Couture opened in 2010.

Growing up with an interior designer mom, owner Heather can't help but love color and fun prints. She strives to carry only unique items with good design that she would dress her daughter, two nieces, nephew, and goddaughter in.

Heather used to spend hundreds of hours searching store after store trying to find unique gifts for each occasion for the little ones in her life. She thought it would be nice for others to be able to go to only one store each time they wanted to find that "perfect gift", and set up Lemonade Couture with that goal in mind. Heather spent countless hours running her lemonade stand as a child and believes that children's clothes should be fun--never boring, and comfortable enough to wear while selling lemonade.

What's in a Name?

Our husbands got into the name game with us. They came up with so many funny names that made no sense at all and were not right for a baby business.

Then THE NAME ... Lemonade Couture.

You see behind every creative business is THE NAME.

My daughter Heather has always enjoyed working. There were the summers she rode the city bus downtown to work as a waitress in a volunteer tea room long before she was old enough to have a real job or drive. Then there were the many babysitting jobs.

But the most successful of all of Heather's ventures was her lemonade stand.
She made wonderful signs, ventured into food offerings in addition to her lemonade, and set up a regular table in front of our house. Thirty five years ago, she could bring in $70 a day in lemonade sales. How she made so much in a day, we couldn't figure out. She always said it was because of her baked apple specialty.

I knew, even then, that sales were in her future. Lemonade to Couture ... the perfect transition for a born entrepreneur. The perfect name for a business: Lemonade Couture.
