About Us

Kara and Tom are a husband/wife duo who had a dream. The story begins back in 1984 when we met working at the Barclay Square Mall in Rochester, Minnesota. We moved to Appleton in 1985 to follow our careers in retail management. We didn’t have a plan to stay in Appleton but after moving away from the retail life and starting a family we made Appleton our long-term home. Our dream became reality when we purchased Lillians of Appleton in 2016 and dove back into the retail life. In two short years we took a leap of faith and expanded Lillians from 1500 to 3000 square feet. We also grew our Lillians team from two to ten remarkable ladies.

Located in the heart of the downtown Appleton shopping district, Lillians features women’s clothing in sizes XS to 3x, shoes, handbags, jewelry and more. Selections are offered in limited quantities with new arrivals weekly. Lillians has fashions for women of all ages.

Making women feel good is the best part of our job. We strive to offer exceptional customer service by giving one on one attention to every customer. We also pride ourselves with being able to give back to local charities throughout the year. Beyond helping you look your best, Lillians of Appleton strives to make every purchase a positive experience. Your sure to impress as you show off your new Lillians Style.
