Pushing forward in the current retail climate, Lilly & Lolly opens up a NEW store in Albert Park.
Less than 12 months ago Lilly & Lolly, opened up a store in Waterloo, Sydney. The demand however was banging on their door from Melbourne. Megan Butler (Sales & Marketing Director of Lilly & Lolly) said “some days we would receive up to 3 phone calls asking when we will open in Melbourne”.
Lilly & Lolly had its beginnings at Paddington Markets in Sydney 12 years ago. Making a name for itself with party plan, wholesaling across Australia and being one of the first on-line stores in Australia, the company has been growing steadily every since. There was however no retail shop, apart from a small factory outlet in the suburbs of Sydney. The demand, from loyal customers, was to see this beautiful Australian brand represented in shinny shops so the first was opened only 2 years ago, upgraded less than 12 months ago and the 3rd opened only 4 days ago.
The busy pair, Ashling Punnett (Designer & Creative Director of Lilly and Lolly) and Megan Butler, are the dynamos that are making this all happen. With 5 children between them, this duo is offering parents and kids a stunning alternative to how kid’s rooms can look as amazing as the rest of the home. Lilly & Lolly stands out with simple designs, striking colours with finishes & touches that are so much fun.
Albert Park was the obvious choice, when searching around for the perfect space. The shopping and cafes are vibrant and beautiful plus the central location for the whole of Melbourne makes getting there easy. Ashling commented “Albert Park has a lovely feel with people strolling in and out of shops and the people are so friendly – we have felt very welcomed.”
With only 9 days of trading before Christmas the doors are wide open and the reception has been overwhelming. Megan said, “When people step-in they fall in love with the shop and rave about the colours. There is so much to look at.”
When you come to Albert Park just look for the giant yellow bunny!
