Sweet Teas Children’s Boutique is a boutique that offers only the best in children’s clothing, gifts, and accessories. We pride ourself in our own line Miley & Kate but offer many of the best lines from market also. Miley & Kate is a mixed line of high quality, hand smocked and knit children’s clothing. While our clothing is adorable and top of the line, our products are actually affordable too!
Why the name “Miley & Kate”? Well, Miles was my cocker spaniel and my companion for many years. He sat up with me at night while I was brainstorming on how to develop my own line of children’s clothing. He passed away in 2013 but will live on forever with Miley & Kate as he is the logo in all of our clothes. Kate is from my sweet, precious daughter, Aubrey Kate. She was truly the inspiration behind the line of clothing. Miley represents all the sweet southern little boys and Kate represents all the sweet southern belles who love our smocked styles and oh so comfy knits.
Founder Nicole Munnerlyn’s Story: When I was pregnant with my first child I quickly learned that I had expensive taste in children’s clothing. I wanted to dress her in only the best, but that was going to be expensive. So I learned to sew and then I learned to smock. It was so much fun seeing my ideas come to life. I had more ideas than I had time to make. I started sketching out all of my ideas. Then I started researching how to have them made. In the midst off all of this we welcomed Aubrey Kate in the spring of 2010. And the desire to dress her in all the southern smocked styles only grew. By 2011 I received the first shipment of “my designs.” From the spare bedroom to a small store in late 2011 to a beautiful store located in the heart of Uptown Greenwood, Sweet Teas Children’s Boutique has grown.
The Partnership: In 2013 I welcomed the best business partner ever, Cindy Leary! Cindy had been sewing and running the store while I worked on designs and on growing the Facebook page sales. We now own Sweet Teas together and we make a great team. You can always find Cindy up front helping customers. She keeps the store going. All the kids love her and they know that before they leave that Mrs. Cindy will have a Dum Dum (or 2) for them.
Our Team: We are so lucky to say that we have the best girls working for us. Linsey is my right hand. She can do it all. Whatever the task Linsey can do it. She has been with Sweet Teas since 2012. She started as our in-house photographer. In addition to all the photographs she takes she also helps with designs, the store, and our shipping department. Mary Kathrine heads up the monogram department. She does a fabulous job with all monograms and appliques. Mrs. Becky helps us out on Saturdays and sometimes during the week when Mrs. Cindy is off. Mrs. Becky is just plain FUN! She keeps us laughing all the time. She loves to work to dress her 4 grandchildren. Jamey joined us in June 2014. She works on all of the online/e-commerce shopping. She spends most of her days behind the computer responding to your e-mails, working on Social Media, and tending to the webpage.
We are excited to introduce our new label and line Summer 2015. Start looking for M&K t-shirt designs by the end of June!
