    Fresh Face: Tulip Boutique

    Spring’s quintessential bloom is the name of the newest ladies’ clothing boutique to open doors in the Midlands this year. Tulip will carry women’s garments, shoes, and accessories in the very heart of Lexington, where owner Suzie Baughman lives and identifies a scarcity of specialty shops tailored to women.


    “Over the years, I’ve grown to love shopping local and finding unique pieces in small businesses,” says Suzie. “But I felt a lack of brick-and-mortar clothing shops that offered in Lexington what you can find in downtown Columbia. I believe there is a market for that in Lexington.”


    With an extensive paralegal background and a real passion for fashion, Suzie only recently decided to put her juridical expertise to work in the service of her lifelong dream of owning a women’s boutique.


    “I spent the better part of my life believing that dreams are just that… dreams. Shame on me,” Suzie explains. “My path to this second act has taught me gratitude and given me peace and strength to follow those dreams. I hope this adventure inspires and empowers others. Whatever your age or circumstance, it is never too late to try new, to change, to be better.”


    Tulip reflects Suzie’s mission to use fashion-conscious garments as a tool to help women feel special on any occasion. She wants each lady who walks through her doors to feel comfortable, welcomed, and inspired to find the perfect outfit that makes them feel beautiful and unique.


    “I am excited to meet new people and bring my love for fashion to life in a storefront,” adds Suzie. “I want Tulip to be the spot where a bride finds the perfect shower or party dress, a graduate finds her perfect graduation day dress, or a mom finds the perfect outfit for a night out or special event. I also want it to be the spot where anyone can find staple pieces for their closets that will last for years to come.”


    Tulip is set to open to the public in May 2021, and we can’t wait!
