It was Small Business Saturday over the weekend in Downtown Ocean Springs. Local small businesses showed thanks to their customers by offering discounts as they shopped for the holidays.
Lily Marie is a boutique located on Government Street, catering to every kind of woman. The chic fashions offer good vibes and stylish looks.
In honor of Small Business Saturday, the boutique encouraged shoppers to pull an ornament off their Christmas tree decorated in accessories and inside reveals the discount they receive on their entire purchase.
The fun interactive game brought excitement to customers and relief as they shopped for Christmas gifts. Lily Marie Store Manager Olivia Brown said, “We definitely love having people support small business especially here in downtown Ocean Springs. We’re doing a little bit of a lottery. We have some ornaments on our Christmas tree and whichever ornament you pick will determine whatever percentage you get off of your purchase. We love this location because we are just kind of a really nice close-knit community. We’re all supporting each other cause a lot of businesses down here are all owned, locally owned and we do like to support local and give back to our community and we do try to promote our regulars coming in and we’re very grateful for them.”
The Lily Marie Boutique is excited for holiday shoppers and will occasionally have mimosas and seasonal donuts for shoppers who come in.
