From the brick streets of Oxford to the bustling neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine, two entrepreneurial sisters joining forces with a local floral shop to bring a new boutique to the heart of OTR.
Rachel Pfeiffer and her sister Jessica Greene are the owners of Lane & Kate, a formerly Oxford-based boutique that specializes in fashion, gifts, and home decor, as well as an emphasis on shopping local, creativity, and community.
Since they opened their doors on High Street in July 2016, things have changed and the desire to continue to grow only got stronger.
Friends with Cincinnati-based Two Little Buds, the sisters have shuttered the doors on their Oxford store and made the move to Over-the-Rhine.
With the transformation that’s taken over the OTR neighborhood in recent years, and their passion for partnering up with Two Little Buds, Pfeiffer says the duo felt a strong calling to be in Cincinnati.
“We are so excited to open in Over-the-Rhine,” says Pfeiffer. “We have such a deep appreciation for local, sustainable products and put true emphasis on creativity and originality – something that has been celebrated throughout the OTR neighborhood.”
The store, now combined with Two Little Buds, is full of unique, handmade jewelry, gifts, accessories, and will also feature fresh arrangements, botanicals, and a “flower bar” where customers can create their own bouquets.
The new store celebrated its grand opening on March 30, where they offered DIY flower crowns and had a stylist from Parlour on-site for a braid bar. They also served refreshments from Bakersfield and Holtman’s Donuts.
While the location is different, the items you’ll find in store won’t venture too far from the inventory in Oxford. “We have introduced new artists and have expanded our fine jewelry selection, including Jennie Kwon, Emily Amey, La Kaiser, and Megan Thorne,” says Pfeiffer.
Fresh flowers is also a new focal point, thanks to joining together with Two Little Buds.
The store is located at 1405 Vine Street, between Continuum and Pontiac streets, and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 8 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm.
