The Lily Pad Boutique

38th Anniversary Celebration

The Lily Pad BoutiqueWow, how time has flown since that humble beginning in 1978 when The Lily Pad opened its doors to this fast-paced and ever-changing world of ladies’ fashions! What an exciting and rewarding experience it has been to dress many of you through the decades and now to have the privilege of providing the fashions you love for your daughters and granddaughters! Our purpose in 1978 was the same as it is in 2016 – to provide the ultimate in not only customer service, but fashion forward merchandise for women of all shapes, sizes, and ages!

So to each of you, along with the awesome staff at The Lily Pad, a heartfelt thank you for 38 years of fun and fashion… an incredible experience and a dream come true!

“Whether it be a special occasion or a new season, I can always find exactly what I’m looking for at The Lily Pad. The minute I walk in the door, Brenda, Renee, and the staff always seem to know exactly what I’m looking for!” – Beverly Harrison, Loudon

“When I walk through the door of The Lily Pad, it’s like entering an episode of ‘Cheers,’ because ‘everybody knows my name!’ They also know my likes and dislikes but still encourage me to step out of my comfort zone to try new things. It’s always a fun day at The Lily Pad!” – Polly Gerstenlauer, Knoxville

“Brenda and I met seven years ago during a fashion show. I was ‘doing’ makeup, and she was ‘doing’ clothes. After seeing the clothes, I couldn’t wait to get to The Lily Pad. I was there the next day when the doors opened and spent the day there! The rest is history. I have never met anyone more passionate about her customers! She loves every minute of every day ‘playing dress up’ with her friends and customers. She has dressed them for every notable occasion and for every day. I am absolutely blessed to call her a friend and a mentor.” – Renee Fisher, Athens

“I have been shopping at The Lily Pad since its beginning. It is still a special place where I love to shop each season for my clothes.” – Polly Click, Lenoir City

“I’ve known Brenda and The Lily Pad for at least 15 years and have seen the shop evolve and grow during those years.  The clothing that Brenda chooses for her shop is first rate, and when I’m looking for something special or unique for a trip or an event, I know I will find it at The Lily Pad.  Brenda and her staff are very attentive to detail, and they know their customers.  Service is a priority at The Lily Pad, and that plus all the great clothing and accessories keep customers coming back.” – Judy Irmen, Rarity Bay

“I have been shopping at The Lily Pad for 30 years or more, and the fashions they have keep me coming back! Keep up the good work Brenda and staff!” – Clata Thompson, Decatur

“When I think of shopping at The Lily Pad, I feel as if I’m going to visit dear friends. The amazing staff always makes me feel warm and welcome; we have fun and laugh a lot!

Believe me, she always remembers what you like!” – Sandy Price, Rarity Bay

The quality of the clothing is unsurpassed – I’m able to wear their classic styles year after year but can also find the newest fashions every time I walk in. The whole staff has the ability to find beautiful yet comfortable clothing that flatters any size. It’s a true pleasure to shop there.” – Jessica Morgan, Sweetwater

“We moved to Sweetwater in September of 1979. At that time, The Lily Pad was a little shop in what was known as the Marvel Hotel. Locations have changed, and each has been a great improvement, but Brenda and her attention to her clientele remains forever the same. The Lily Pad and Brenda have been a constant in my life since my first visit in 1979. Such consistency in the ever-changing world of ladies’ fashions is rare and beautiful and so much fun! Thanks, Brenda, for all you and your staff do for all of us and for the years of friendship you and I have shared. Congratulations!” – Charlotte Mayberry, Sweetwater

“The Lily Pad has been a dream come true for 38 years for me and my closet! I can speak for many of my friends who shop with Brenda, also.” – Jane Venable, Tellico Village

“The Lily Pad has the best customer service of any store I know. Brenda and her staff go out of their way to make your experience with them wonderful. The clothes are great, too!” – Ronda Tucker, Decatur

“I have shopped at The Lily Pad for more than a decade. I ALWAYS find things that I not only like in the store but enjoy wearing over and over again. Brenda and her staff wrote the definition for customer service. The personal attention and the great choices definitely make the trip from Signal Mountain to Sweetwater worthwhile.” – Patsy Hazelwood, State Representative, Signal Mountain, TN
