We interviewed store owner Melissa Gibson who co-owns the most adorable boutique in Tustin, California with Suzi Segal! Not only are we OBSESSED with the so-sweet name of the store, we love her take on spring trends, parenting advice and their fun events planned in the next 2 months for families (we heard a rumor the Easter Bunny will possibly be at their store!). Read more to discover today’s “Premier Store Spotlight” with children’s boutique The Duck Pond (www.the-duckpond.com). Enjoy!

1.     What was the inspiration behind the name The Duck Pond?
Melissa: Since we are new owners we are not sure how the name came about but if we had to guess we think the ducks are children in a pond of clothing. 

2.     Describe the neighborhood where your store is located in Tustin, California. What are the local family hangouts you would recommend?
Melissa: Our store is located in an upscale shopping center in Tustin, California. Along with our store we have an upscale jewelry store, art gallery and women’s and men’s clothing stores. Minutes away from The Duck Pond is the Santa Ana Zoo, Irvine Regional Park, Disneyland, and the Discovery Center. 

3.     It’s about that time to start packing up some of the old winter items and cleaning out the closet for spring clothes for your little one. What are 3 spring must-have items that are in your store?
Melissa: White sandals, a flirty dress, something navy, and (of course) matching hair accessories. 

4.      What would people be surprised to learn about your store?
Melissa: We have a large supply of baptism clothes for both boys and girls, along with amazing dresses and party clothes for girls and great clothes for boys. 

5.     Tell us about a “special” moment that made your day working at your store.
Melissa: The most exciting time for us was the first time we had someone come in and compliment the “new” atmosphere and our new clothes that we have – that made us feel proud to be the new owners of The Duck Pond.

6.     There are plenty of blooper funny moments being around children and mom’s all day in your store – tell us something funny a child has said that made you giggle.
Melissa: We love to hear little girls talk and parade around the store once they put on a party dress. One girl said she felt like a “fairy princess.” 

7.     Tell us about any special events that you have planned at your store and fun deals we can expect.
Melissa: We have a “Ladies Night Out” on March 22nd from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and a “Sip and Stroll” on April 16th.  We also hope that the Easter Bunny will visit our store soon!

8.     Tell us your best parenting tip or mom advice that your mom passed on to you that you would like to share with a new parent.
Melissa: Patience, patience, patience, this too will pass. 

9.     What collection or piece from Le Top or Le Top Baby line or Rabbitmoon do you love from the Spring 2011?
Melissa: We love Poppies, Bee Happy and Daisy collections but we really love all of them!
