What’s a girl to do when she wants to look fabulous for a night on the town, but doesn’t have extravagant amounts of cash to spend on jewelry or clothing? The answer is right in Natick— shop .
Lemon Tree Goods, located at 325 N. Main St., specializes in local and original designs as well as high-quality recycled clothing. They also offer jewelry, gifts and footwear.
“My partner, Bonnie Lash and I opened the store in 2009 to take advantage of the downed economy,” said Co-Owner Mary Barber.
“We take gently used clothing that has been well cared for,” Barber said. “We will accept Banana Republic or better and our clothing is changed out completely every 60 days, but new items arrive weekly.”
“In addition to clothing, Lemon Tree carries handcrafted gifts made by local artisans,“ their website reads. “The contemporary jewelry, decoupage frames and boxes, sentimental pottery works, and hand-knitted goods will remind you of how gift giving is supposed to feel.”
The boutique carries many unique brands. Some of the brands you may see on any given day include, but are not limited to: Free People, Oilily, Anthropologie, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Isda & Co, Alice & Olivia, BCBG, Marc Jacobs, Lacoste, and Burberry.
“You will find every size from 0 to 1 X,” Barber said.
Not sure what looks good or what size—no worries—Lash and Barber are happy to be your personal shopper.
"We love to help people accentuate their style," Barber said.
Interested in consigning? Lemon Tree is happy to spell out the benefits for you.
“Consigning allows you to clean out your closet for each new season, it feels good, it’s green, it allows you to recycle your clothing budget with cash or store credit, and you can receive awards for using store credit.”
“The consigner receives 40 percent,” Barber said.
Lemon Tree offers up to 75 percent off retail on any given day, and they are also active in supporting local charities.
“All of our artisans have a local connection,” Barber said. “Some items may come from as far away as the Cape, but all items are from Massachusetts.”
“We love to lend a helping hand where we can,” the website reads.
If you have a group in need of fundraising help, send a note about your charity to firstname.lastname@example.org and Lemon Tree will do what they can to help out.
“We also donate all of our out of season clothing to , which is a shelter that helps women get on their feet,” Barber said. “Since our clothing changes seasonally, anything extra goes to them.”
