Sometimes, it feels like children come with excess. Whether you’re sorting through hand-me-downs or dealing with birthday party overload, it can feel like your kid has a lot of random items that wind up forgotten in the back of a closet. This is one of the many reasons I love finding local children’s boutiques stocked with items both kids and parents will adore. Pip and Pal has exactly that. This Excelsior store is full of lovely items you won’t mind having around. If you’ve been looking for a local shop with gifts for the little ones in your life, I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Pip and Pal is the latest endeavor from the mother/daughter team Dee Dee Lappen and Chloe Faulk. The pair started with a boutique called Gray Home & Lifestyle. Chloe wanted to work with her mother and establish a space to run together.
Gray opened in 2015, and they soon decided to expand their product lines. They started Pip and Pal to sell high-quality clothing, toys, books, and more. The children’s store is in the back of Gray so that you can find goods for the entire family in one beautiful spot. You can check out both shops at 264 Water Street in Excelsior, Minnesota.
Pip and Pal has a great selection of adorable clothing for infants and toddlers. They carry some top names, including Rylee + Cru, Quincy Mae, Bean’s Barcelona, and 1+ in the Family. The shop leans toward a trendy aesthetic with rust-colored dresses, black and white striped shirts, and cozy furry sweaters.
You’ll be able to find cute patterns and comfortable textures your child will want to wear all year long! Pip and Pal has tons of swimsuits for the summer months and warm leggings for once the temperatures start to dip. And if you want terrific accessories, look no further! Pip and Pal has headbands, bows, and hats to complete any outfit.
Pip and Pal has one of the most darling toy sections around! You can find popular Maileg animals, wooden cars, and stuffed rattles. They carry books your child will want to read again and again.
You’ll find classic titles such as Winnie the Pooh and modern favorites such as Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada. Pip and Pal also has dreamy blankets, beautiful wall art, and luscious soaps that are safe for all skin types.
If you’ve been looking for a children’s store with a selection of toys both you and your baby will adore, check out Pip and Pal. This wonderful shop is stocked with items that will brighten up any nursery.
