Lemonwood: Canada's Hottest Boutique Settles Into Historic Unionville, ON
Expands again during COVID
Oakville, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 8, 2021) - Lemonwood Luxury Inc. ("Lemonwood") proprietor of one of Canada's fastest growing natural apparel and accessories boutiques, is pleased to announce its Unionville Grand Opening on Friday, March 12th at its newest location conveniently located in the heart of the historic Unionville, ON settlement at 193 Main Street - within the beautifully restored Hunter-Dukes House and Store c. 1850 and directly beside the renowned Unionville Arms.
Celebrations begin at noon and will continue throughout the weekend and over the balance of the ensuing week with delicious Hot Chocolate, Scandinavian Butter cookies and many other complimentary treats, not to mention Grand Opening Special Pricing on all collections.
Markham Town Crier John Webster, as well as other dignitaries, will also be present on Saturday, March 13 from noon onwards to welcome Lemonwood and have pictures taken with the kids. We'd love you to come on by for a visit, even if simply to say "welcome to our neighborhood"!
Lemonwood would like to thank Markham Ward 3 Councillor Reid McAlpine, Unionville BIA Executive Director Sarah Sterling and Heritage Markham's Peter Wokral and Regan Hutcheson for their valuable guidance during the renovations to the historic site.
Lemonwood is expanding rapidly, with five retail locations in Oakville, ON, Rosedale/Summerhill, ON, Collingwood, ON, Port Carling and now Unionville, ON as well as serving the rest of Canada, the USA and internationally through its ecommerce offerings. Additional retail locations are currently in the planning stages.
Its retailing philosophy is "elegance & simplicity" on all levels - Scandinavian inspired boutiques that are bright and airy, with clean lines and uncluttered, at their core Modern Day fashion salons that emphasize personal service, that are built around all fibres wonderfully natural, including cashmere (over 100 different styles and 80 different colours of poncho wraps, scarves, shawls, sweaters and more), Italian linens, silks and bamboo and rounded out by beautiful clothing accessories (including designer masks), all curated from around the world, affordable luxuries presented by welcoming and knowledgeable personnel.
"Founded By Women For Women" though to be clear men are welcome too! - check out the luxurious Men's Cashmere spring sweater lines, founder Christine Peters, originally a Lethbridge gal, is a serial entrepreneur who has devoted her entire professional life to sourcing and product development (her personal life being devoted mainly to her twin boys Nickie and Sascha!)
Christine is passionate about luxurious fabrics that tickle the senses, affordable luxuries sourced directly from proprietary manufacturers, where possible from women-owned businesses crafting aligned clothing and accessories, championing Canadian designers and keenly focused (sans lip service) on sustainability such as natural dyes, recycled and organic materials.
When asked why Lemonwood has struck a chord and is expanding when many of her competitors are retreating in the current retailing environment, Christine stated:
"COVID has pivoted our customers away from the corporate treadmill, to rightly focusing on themselves, i.e. health of self and family first. After that it is to brightening up their hearths and homes and finally after that comes personal treats and comfy cozy rewards, and that's where Lemonwood fits the bill: with travel essentially locked down, entertaining more difficult, malls subject to attendance caps, with spouses and kids at home clambering for much deserved TLC, a little Retail Therapy every now and again from your local street front vendor is needed, now more than ever and Lemonwood provides just that.
For those of you who don't already know us, we'd love to get to know you: come on in and try us on for size!"
