Mother’s Day Madness
Mother’s Day is right around the corner! As we think about how to celebrate this special day, we are sharing some of our favorite places to shop in Lancaster. From eco-friendly boutiques to professional hair & beauty salons, there is a perfect gift for everyone. Let’s recognize the amazing women in our lives together, by supporting our local stores and businesses.
Finding high-quality clothing and toys for young ones is not always an easy task. As Laura Haiges was raising her three girls, she found this to be all too true. After having little success with mass-produced clothing and cheap materials, Laura started looking into the possibility of opening up her own place where well-crafted goods and products would be available for the general public. In May 2006, Laura opened BellaBoo—a curated shop of clothing, shoes, toys, car seats, strollers, carriers, and more. Stop by their Queen Street location to shop their full collection!
At Mulberry Salon, Liz and the team make it a priority to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for every customer. Located on West Chestnut Street, the salon offers wedding, hair, and spa services, including facials, waxing, brow & lash tint, and eyelash extensions. Consider treating your loved ones to an afternoon at Mulberry Salon this year!
