Layette carries well-made, classic clothing, accessories and premium products for both special occasions and everyday for children birth to eight years plus. Custom monogramming and personalized gifts are also available. We can often find specific items that are not in our collection, so please don't hesitate to contact us. We're always happy to help.
Layette opened in the winter of 2012. Since then, we have focused on providing timeless, high quality children’s clothing, accessories and gifts to the discerning Dallas shopper and emphasized our commitment to customer service
Ailsa Ellis, the stylish mother of a teenage son, who will no longer let her dress him, is the owner and operator of Layette. Ailsa is a Hockaday graduate, has a BA from Rhodes College and an MA from SMU. She is actively involved in the Parents Club of St. Mark’s School of Texas. She and her family live in Highland Park. One of her greatest joys is picking next season’s selection in Dallas, New York and Paris Markets (and pretending that her son Cam is still small enough to wear them).
Amy Turgeon is our resident Southern Belle – a transplant from New Orleans. She brings class, joy and a love of heirloom clothing to us. Amy is the mastermind behind our beautiful window displays. Her touch is seen in the elegant staging and in the whimsical details – like hanging beach balls or a unicorn playing piano. Amy is delighted that she is a grandmother to sweet baby Sybil and spends much time trying to teach Sibbie to call her her grandmother name - "Pickles."
Caitlin Taylor keeps us all up and running! She is great at remembering special occasions, who wears what size and what a child needs for each season. Caitlin picks each and every book carried at Layette and does an amazing job of curating a diverse and unique collection. Caitlin has a BFA in Theatre and will always be able to accompany our musically geared clients in singing the newest Disney soundtrack. Ask Caitlin about her adorable niece Rowan and you will win her heart!
Carly Griffin is the newest member of the Layette team and our Instagram/facebook/website resident genius. If you message us or comment on Instagram, Carly is who responds so quickly. If you are in store and accidentally call her Caitlin, don't worry, they are sisters and look alike! Carly is Mom to sweet Rowan - our favorite toddler Instagram model.
