Fit and Flare Dresses - Step Back in Time!

The sleek, slimming fit of a FIT & FLARE dress is a great look, don't you think? This style dress works perfectly with a great pair of sandals, wedges, or even ballet flats! Many of the current fit and flare styles come with a belt which can be easily changed for a completely different look with another color. Imagine a red patent leather belt with red shoes. Why is this so popular? It's the way the shape of the dress hangs on the body! It's just so flattering....a timeless look, reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s. Perfectly suitable for casual events and work, yet equally perfect for a night out or guest of wedding outfit! Julie looks fantastic, doesn't she?

Willow Tree Welcomes cinda b

Cinda b is a new brand for Willow Tree. We love the story behind the brand and the person! Cinda b partnered with one of the most experienced sewing companies in the United States after outgrowing her home space in Atlanta. She moved the cinda b offices and facilities to Fort Wayne, Indiana, taking over the abandoned Vera Bradley facility. (VB moved their production to China leaving behind many skilled workers and an empty factory). Now thousands of cinda bs are made each week by the experienced and skilled professionals that made Vera Bradley for years! Cinda still works and lives in Atlanta, but travels back and forth to her Fort Wayne facility regularly and often. Each and every cinda b bag is still designed with love and care personally by Cinda herself.

The Seal of Acceptance is used to recognize footwear, hosiery and other foot related products that promote good foot health. This independent certification confirms that Dansko delivers shoes with the wearer’s comfort and long-term well-being in mind.

Who Wears Dansko? Here's a Letter from One Fan

I am a school teacher and as a result I am on my feet for hours every day. Dansko shoes are the only footwear that keep me going all day. It is such a welcome end to the day when my feet don't hurt! Thank you for making the only shoes I want to wear. MEAGAN D., CHARLOTTE, NC This is a REAL testimonial -- but we've got lots of those inside the store! Janelle, Julie, Jude, Heidi, Arlene....the list goes on and on. We all wear the Dansko shoes. We all would be lost without them. There are many days that we are on our feet for 10+ hours so we rely on this great brand to keep our feet happy! Come in and chat with us about them!

The Dansko Story

More than twenty years ago wife and husband team, Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, discovered their first product in a tiny store in Europe. They realized that a simple pair of clogs would not only change their lives, but that of everyone who might wear them. So, believing that when you have something great you share it, they gave pairs to friends. Then their friends told their friends. And just like that, a comfort legend was born! Today, their 100% employee owned company based in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, offers a complete line of footwear - heels, boots, sandals, wedges, flats and many, many types of clogs. Every pair is infused with legendary Dansko all-day comfort and support.
Willow Tree is happy to be able to provide such high quality and healthy footwear for our customers. If you've not worn them before, it's time to give them a try!

Lisette is EVERYWHERE! Style and Essence Magazines, too!

Did you know that Willow Tree was the first boutique in the United States to carry this line? Our customers have been fans of the "Flaterie Fit" and the "Magical Prada Pants" for years already! We knew long before Kathie Lee, Hoda, Oprah or Taylor Swift! The pants are amazing. These pants are the brainchild of a Canadian couple, Lisette Limoge and her husband, Neil Small. They're pull-ons with no buttons or zippers...but they are NOT "old lady pants". The fabric and a fit flattens and flatters, slims the abs, contours the hips and shapes the butt. No neef for Spanx under these fabulous pants because they shape you just fine! They have the weight and feel and look of slacks but fit like a glove. They fit and feel as though they've been tailored perfectly for you....but they're straight off the rack.
