About Us


Lucy McEwen here and I am the proud owner of Lily Jane. My love for fashion and all things fun began at a young age. I spent hours rearranging displays and outfits at my grandmother's consignment shop, Second Time Around. I was an early subscriber to style magazines and couldn't get enough. I consider myself to be a professional gift giver (is there such a job title?). I love buying for people! For as long as I can remember I've torn pages of product ideas out of magazines with the intention of researching more about it. Not certain whether I wanted the item for myself, there was always someone who would come to mind who needed a birthday gift or something special.

I had dreams of a career in a big city working in fashion journalism and soon realized that my heart was drawn to a different lifestyle. I loved my hometown of Columbia, TN and was aware of the need for more retail options. Lily Jane (named for both of my grandmothers) opened its doors in 2008 in a small room inside a local coffee shop. Each year proved to be better (and more fun) than the last. 

I am grateful to so many. Family, friends, and our customers are all a part of what has made Lily Jane so special. I also realize that none of this would be possible without my fellow teammates. I have incredible people putting in so much energetic passion, effort, and countless hours. Each of them is very talented at what they do, both in the shop and behind the scenes. Last, but 100% not least, I'm incredibly lucky to have the most supportive husband and four precious children.

Finally, none of this dream could ever have become a reality without my customers who have faithfully waited for our online selection of great finds. They are the most loyal, caring people and I feel blessed to count many of them as friends. I'm so thankful for their continued support to help make Lily Jane a little bit bigger every day. It is my sincere hope and wish that you enjoy your online shopping experience with us! Happy shopping!
