Find fresh styles at Three Little Birds Boutique in Lancaster
Woman-owned by Margaret Miller, Three Little Birds Boutique is celebrating one year in Lancaster, their third storefront alongside Mechanicsburg and Hershey.
After a teaching career and becoming a mother of three, Margaret drew upon her passion for art and styling to create this inclusive boutique where locals love to shop. Emphasizing the word “transgenerational,” Margaret strives to curate a selection where both mothers and daughters can shop together, and both find cool and unique stuff they love.
And that’s not the only motivation behind how she stocks the shelves. TLB is also built on a commitment to sell quality pieces that elevate women’s wardrobes.
“I’m not into fast fashion that only lasts one season,” she shared. “People work hard for their money, so I try to source brands that start at a manageable price point while encouraging our clients to buy less clothing. I want to serve as much of the community as we can in the best way we can with what we offer.”
Margaret believes shopping over the last 10 years has become isolated and cold with the uptick in online shopping and big box stores.
“I’ve found women still want help with styling, sizing, and just overall support while shopping,” she added. “That’s why I do what I do and why we are growing. I want to put more beauty back into the world by creating these spaces for women.”
Along with supporting each store, Margaret also designs and manages production for her own clothing lines with her partner Jess—JoFlower, which represents the beauty in the joys of life, and Straitlaced, which embodies classic design with trend-driven detail.
“Because we have three stores, people often think there are multiple owners or that it is a larger business,” she said. “I want people to know TLB is a small business with a great group of managers who work alongside me to create magic for our clients at each location.”
