Poppy Togs and Clogs

October 2nd, 2011
by Allison Kaplan

Jill Henderson’s dream is one many a working mom can appreciate: To run her own business in order to have the flexibility to spend more time with her family. I’m always dubious when moms think opening a store is going to enhance their quality of life, but Henderson, who has years of retail/merchandising experience, seems to be setting boundaries right out of the gate. Poppy Togs and Clogs, in the former Peapods space at Snelling and St. Clair, is open just Thursday-Sunday. She tells other moms why, and hopes they’ll understand. Now she just needs to make those four days a week count.

Poppy is stocked with baby and toddler apparel as well as colorful clothes for moms from pattern-happy brands like Desigual. Find print cotton dresses, statement coats, jewelry and clogs in every color. Beyond gift-friendly baby goods like sock monkey pajamas and St. Paul shirts, Poppy targets practical moms with a rack of “recycled” kids clothes she’s collected (items are not being accepted for resale at this time). The store is a work in progress–something any mother can appreciate. 251 Snelling Ave. S., St. Paul, 612-236-3660

    And watch for themed semi-regular cocktail/shopping parties at Poppy, too!
    It’s grand-opening party last month was one of the most fun fashion events of the Fall!

    Wow! What a great addition to the neighborhood. Love the clogs and clothes. Mac-Grove is finally going to get a boost in coolness. I love my clogs I bought today!!! As an artist/teacher/mom/writer/over 40 cool lady…excellence in shopping!!!

    Jill is also a super friendly merchant that loves her customers. She is very customer orientated and gives you the attention you deserve. You will love her store and the merchandise.

    Thanks and I’ll tell all to come!
