Apricot Lane Fort Mill Celebrates 1st Year In Business

Text by TMM Staff

Jackie Kimbrel, the owner of Apricot Lane Fort Mill, was excited to celebrate her first year in business surrounded by friends, family, and a loyal customer base. With a champagne toast and decadent cake, the celebration offered plenty of raffle prizes and swag bags for the first 25 guests.

“I started this business to have something that was mine that I love doing, something that I am proud to promote and can share with my two daughters,” Jackie explained.

While reflecting on her first year, Jackie stated, “Opening the boutique has been exciting, but Apricot Lane is different from others. Some may think, ‘It’s just another women's clothing store,’ but honestly, I have learned that it is much more than that. Our welcoming vibe allows our customers to feel comfortable and confident when shopping and trying on clothes. Customers feel comfortable sharing their personal stories from breast cancer survival, weight loss success, fertility, motherhood, and so much more. These stories lead to a connection and a positive experience for our Apricot Lane Fort Mill shoppers and they know they can always come to our store, find a friend, and a perfect outfit for any occasion.”

Jackie Kimbrel is a Fort Mill, South Carolina native who worked in healthcare for 23 years before opening Apricot Lane Fort Mill in December 2022. “When I began researching franchises about two years ago, I stumbled upon Apricot Lane. Their mission and values aligned with my goals and became a dream come true for me. Each owner does their own buying, which puts a special touch on each store. And, the support I have received from Apricot Lane Headquarters along the way has been amazing,” explained Jackie.
