"We're more for the average morn, av- erage lady who just wants to look a little bit nicer and have some fun clothes to wear" She hopes that hav- ing local artisans and crafters involved will also drive business. A significant por- tion of inventory will be commercially pro- duced with specialty items like crocheted hair bows. "Help sup- port your fellow stay- at-home moms," Sik- kema said. While still a few months away from the opening .of Lilly Kate, Sikkema said initial plans call for the business to be open Tuesdays through Saturdays. That's un- til she gets a feel for when people are out shopping. Sikkema an- nounced plans for the business at the No- Vember meeting of the Cheney Merchant's Association where she not only became a new member, but chose to take the challenge of joining the board, too. She offered to serve as the organization's secretary, something board members quick- ly agreed to. "I wanted to dive right in and start making connections," Sikkema said.
