Hi! My name is Tamara (pronounced like camera with a T!) and I am the owner of The Pricklee Pear Boutique! I am a small town girl and Texas State University Grad. I married my husband and biggest supporter in 2009. Our daughter Ainslee was born in 2011 and our son Tripp was born in 2014. For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to own a cute little boutique in my home town. I wasn't sure it would happen and honestly, at times I felt like I'd just be happy starting any kind of business as long as it was my own! I worked in corporate America until my daughter was born when I left to be a stay at home mom. I loved staying at home with my babies, but was always dabbling in something trying to make a few extra bucks. In 2016 I took the leap and opened my very first store front!! As a busy mom, I was always trying to find cute clothing that was easy to throw on, didn't take a ton of styling, and was practical for chasing around my kiddos. Bringing mom friendly, on-trend styles to busy women and making them feel beautiful, put together and appreciated has become my passion. The Pricklee Pear name came from my husband and son who's middle names are Lee, and my daughter who's name is Ainslee. The name is a constant reminder of why I do what I do. I strive to make shopping at The Pricklee Pear an experience, not just another transaction. Each and every item is hand picked by me, and when it's sold, it's carefully wrapped up and sent off with a hand written thank you card and lots of love! I know there are a million places to shop, and it means the world to me when you choose to support MY little boutique. Thank you so much for stopping by!
