Many of you have seen that we recently launched a baby and children’s store inside semblance called petite mere. (You can shop petite mere here – but just know we have more things in the store than what is listed on the website.) I wanted to take some time to tell you more about Petite Mere and why we decided to add it in.
Ever since I got pregnant, everyone started asking me if I was going to add baby items to the store. My first reaction was no, it’s a women’s store. But, a few months after Emmy was born everyone started asking me where I was getting her clothes from and I realized that Semblance before Emmy was going to completely change into a new thing after Emmy. So much of my life is wrapped up into this store and it’s been interesting to watch it grow and develop as my life changes.
Some of you may not know but my best friend Katie and I had our baby girls 6 weeks apart. We have very much been on this ride of motherhood together and it has been the best thing to have someone so close to me experience the same ups and downs as I had. We would have several conversations about potentially doing baby in the store (Katie hears all of my ideas – the good and the bad – about Semblance all the time). I would like to say that we spent a lot of time deliberating adding a baby section, but we didn’t.
I’m pretty sure our conversation went a little like, “I think you need to add a baby section to the store. A lot of people are asking me.” “You do? Ok, let’s do it.” And it was done. We went to market, my husband added more racks in the space – and the rest just worked out. It’s pretty easy when you have your best friend helping you!
Our “petite” selection of baby and childrens gifts is just that – petite. I know there are so many great local businesses in Amarillo that have larger selections than we do at this time, but you guys asked and I listened! I’m so proud of the collection we have curated for our store, and I am so excited to watch it grow.
Thank you all for all of the kind words about the new “addition” to semblance. If there is anything that we can ever help you with, wether that be finding a dress that you can nurse in and getting a gift for a baby shower, we want to help you in any way possible. I hope that you stop in and see all of our new things soon!
