By featuring premier national and international designers, and then mixing in a few accessories created by local artisans, Apricot Lane helps you create a look all your own. You’ll find the hottest, premium clothing collections here that you can’t find anywhere else.
We love to watch moms and daughters shop together for clothes they both might wear! We have a unique selection of styles perfect for women of all ages who want to dress in the latest trends while remaining true to their identity. After shopping here, moms will have to defend their closets against their teenage daughters!
Store owner Cristi Hargrove knows the best way to do business is to always put the customer first, so in true boutique fashion, the associates at Apricot Lane take personal service to the next level. We know the latest trends and styles and can help you choose the most flattering pair of jeans or the perfect top that expresses who you are and makes you feel great, too. We greet you by name, learn your favorite brands, and even send you notes when we receive new merchandise you are sure to love.

Brittany, Store Manager
Growing up in a small town in Alabama, Amanda discovered her unique style and passion for fashion at a very young age. While other kids her age were playing with barbies, you could find this Southern Belle inside her makeshift doll house devising a business plan with her 'Etch-a-Sketch,' which, consequently came in handy during her fashion endeavors years later. After studying at the University of West Florida, Amanda found herself in Pensacola, Florida and shortly after, Panama City Beach, where she assisted the opening of a boutique that quickly satisfied the craving of every hungry shopper. Those who encounter Amanda's "hands-on approach" to customer service will walk away with not only a unforgettable shopping experience, but a higher standard of what personal shopping is all about.

Hanna began her journey in retail just over seven years ago and worked her way through the ranks to land managerial positions with retailers the last five of them. Her ambitions and strong determination to fulfill a store manager position have led her to conquer as a store manager in her hometown in West Texas with Apricot Lane.
Hanna started her selling skills in Prestige cosmetics with companies Dillard’s and Ulta beauty. She had a great desire to grow and excel in management and moved up north to pursue Business Management School. This led her to grow fond of merchandising and working with high-end fashion labels quickly. With her foot in the door as Assistant manager with Apricot Lane in Frisco she soon took it upon herself to grow quickly into a team leader and landed her own store four months later back home in West Texas as the franchise expanded. Customer relationships are very important to her and as a role model to her staff she ensures all customers receive the highest standard of a boutique shopping experience as well as a reason to help fill their closets again with us soon.
