A store that strikes the perfect balance between preppy and boho chic, Lizard Thicket is a great spot to find stylish pieces and fashionable staples. With its student budget friendly items you can score wardrobe additions to stay trendy and without breaking the bank. When I first visited, it was like a wonderland of unique clothes that I immediately put on my wish list for future consideration.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe the Lizard Thicket girl?
Jacqueline Waynick: She’s an artisitc minded and creative individual. She appreciates everything vintage—from the apothecary jars she found at the local antique store to the lace details on her clothing. She is independent and confident while staying incredibly in tune with the fashion world around her. She treasures feeling beautiful in her own skin as well as her clothes.
CF: What makes Lizard Thicket so unique?
JW: We operate differently than most boutiques. We carry an extensive collection of inventory, giving our customer a much larger selection to choose from than they are used to. Superior customer service and affordable pricing has set our boutique apart from the rest.
CF: Which items are some of the best sellers in the store?
JW: Our best selling items are the line of LT basics which is exclusive to our store. It’s all camis, thin strapped camis, leggings and everything solid basic colors. They are amazing layering pieces. Our accessories also do well. Bourbon and Boweties is a handcrafted line of jewelry and an inspirational jewelry line Lenny & Eva also do well.
CF: What is the perfect summer outfit from Lizard Thicket?
JW: For our college student I would say just a crop top, some high-waisted shorts, a cute pair of sandals and maybe a pendant necklace. But everyone else, what we’ve done best with at the store, is just a simple sundress, a little crochet vest and a long pendant necklace. That’s the best summer outfit for our customer.
CF: What advice would you give to an aspiring boutique owner?
JW: Not to get a fashion merchandising degree that’s what I would tell everybody. Most people they do do fashion merchandising because they love it and of course I understand that owning a boutique. But the most important advice I could give is getting a business degree, because to own a clothing store it really is so much more than just loving fashion and you have to know that backend of it. Fashion merchandising leaves you kind of stuck and you don’t really get the foundation for business. And don’t give up!
