Hello and welcome to my small children’s online boutique: Mili & Lilies.
My name is Stephanie, I’m a Mom of 2 kiddos both under the age of 2. Before starting my online boutique, I worked as buyer for 4 years, with the last 2 years spent specifically in the fashion industry.
I grew up in a family-owned textile business, where I was taught to appreciate quality and workmanship in clothing. My hardworking Father taught me many things about fabrics and to appreciate high quality garments, which now influences my purchases for my little ones.
After becoming a Mom, I realized that it can be very time consuming to try and find beautiful yet high quality products. Every time I would try to find international brands that were not in Canada, shipping and customs would end up costing almost as much as the price of the product. All of these aspects led me to the idea of starting an online store which would provide an accessible place for Mom’s to shop.
At Mili & Lilies you will be able to find a carefully chosen selection of products from well-established brands, as well as beautiful small shops where products are handmade with care and incredible attention to detail.
I wanted to make sure that parents would have access to variety of international brands, small and big, but would only pay a fraction of the shipping price. For all my Canadian customers, this would mean no more customs headache where you never know what to expect.
Through my business, I also wanted to find a way to give back to those that are less fortunate than us. We are so blessed to be able to shop for our kiddos, which is why I have incorporated donating meals to children within Tiverny village in Haiti, through the MBP organization. Every single item purchased from our boutique is associated with donating a certain number of meals to the village. If you would like to read more about our mission, please see here.
This journey for me is really a true privilege. I have learned so much so far and still have lots to learn on how I can make your shopping experience as streamline as possible. I would always love to hear your feedback!
Nothing makes me happier than to hear that clients have found exactly what they were looking for and had zero hassle getting it in their hands. I know this is just the beginning and I am so excited to see how else I will be able to use Mili & Lilies to make parents lives easier.
Please feel free to reach out if there are any brands you would love to see in the shop because at the end of the day, this is for YOU!
