About Us

Orchid’s Boutique is a transplant!  Formerly Lilie’s Boutique at Heritage Garden Gallery, Orchid’s is the result of many loyal Lilie’s customers asking if we would continue the clothing boutique at a new location. And so we have! After considering a host of different names for our new boutique, Grace landed on Orchid’s.  It seemed natural to keep a “flower” name considering our roots first as a garden centre.  

Why an Orchid?

An orchid is both a classy and exotic flower with long-lasting blooms, and it is our hope that you will find both trendy and classic clothing at our new boutique, clothing that you will enjoy wearing over and over.

And so our story continues. We look forward to seeing you at our new location in St. Thomas.  Stop in, we are continuing our tradition of always having coffee on!
