The Groovy Gator is super excited to announce the arrival of Lilly + Sid.

This is a special occasion for us as we will be the only US retailer offering this fun and colorful line from London, England for the Spring 2017 season.

Founded in London by a husband and wife design team, this brand is well known and loved world wide.  Lilly + Sid is distributed globally, but only just getting started in the USA.  AND WE GET IT FIRST!  We are getting a jump on the rest of the American market, we will be the only store in the country to carry the Spring 17 collection.


Whimsical prints and bright colors are a staple element of this line.  Statement pieces with applique that highlight themes within the collection.  From iconic London concepts like the classic red bus and the flowing Union Jack to nautical inspiration of sailboats and anchors, these pieces will make any children's closet burst with energy.

This line fits perfectly with our nautical heritage here on Aquidneck Island and Newport in particular.  A navy, white and red color theme for both boys and girls is part of this diverse assortment.  Layered for the unpredictable weather in New England and all over the north east, the pieces feature all of the images from the waterfront.  Shorts, and tops to match, made in the softest jersey cotton that feels amazing on your child.

The girls collection is bright and colorful, with floral patterns and prints mixed with bold combinations of stripes and contrasting colors.  The pieces all tie together to make a complete wardrobe.  Fanciful dresses that are perfect to twirl in play or for school.

Groovy Blog: Shop Small

Posted on January 25, 2017 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings) | 0 comments

Shop Local , Please & Thank you…

As a small business, we rely heavily on our local customer.  The mom from pre-school with the two girls in Girl Scouts.  The dad who is a Police Officer with the son in band.  The grandparents, proud of their son's twins about to experience a first holiday.  Some of you live around the corner, some may travel from afar to see us.  Local to us could be year round residents from Aquidneck Island, or local could be the family from out of town that comes back to visit on the same week end every summer.



We make an extra effort to get to know our customers.  We know your family, your successes, your challenges.  We learn your favorite colors and we know what size you wear.  You are important to us.  We learn from you, because we listen to you when you are here.  You share your life with us, and we share ours with you.  As your children grow, we grow with you.  As you send them out to the world, whether in school, on vacation, or just for fun, we are there with you to help make sure they go in style.

Over the years, we have made genuine connections with you.  Friendships that supersede traditional customer relationships.  We see you at the grocery store, we see you at soccer or softball games.  We have dinner together, we watch each other's children grow up, we comfort each other in times of trouble.  We are friends.




As you begin to make your shopping plan for the upcoming new year, keep in mind where your neighbors work.  Many of them may be relying on a small business as a sole source of income.  We hope you will include us here at The Groovy Gator as part of your shopping experience.  We would love to be a resource for your shopping needs.  We hope you enjoy your time in the store, and we hope we can get to know you, too.
