Welcome to Strands of Lilac. Have you ever had that dream as a little girl of what you want to be when you grow up? I did and mine was to be a professional figure skater! Well let's be honest, that was not going to happen. As I became of working age, a dear close friend of the family (the older sister I never had) gave me my first job at her business. I worked the cash register at a little gift shop next to a gas station and while watching her run her business, I was hooked! Ever since then, I knew I wanted to own my own business. I wanted that corner office in a high rise building. Then came marriage, three boys and all things blue and that high rise was not my dream anymore. This is my dream, being a wife and watching my boys grow into men. Did I ever think I would own an online boutique? No, but I am so excited to start this new venture in my life. My name is Alyssa and I hope you enjoy shopping at Strands of Lilac!
