Whether you’re shopping for a bride-to-be, a baby shower, a birthday or just looking to treat yourself, Pink Lemonade ensures that you’ll find exactly what you’re searching for. The shelves of the whimsical boutique are stocked with quirky coffee mugs, sassy stationery and greeting cards, essentials from popular brands, including Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer, thoughtful gifts for mothers and grandmothers, perfectly-themed bachelorette party swag and adorable baby clothing, shoes and accessories that will make you say, “Aww!”

Pink Lemonade also houses one-of-a-kind creations from more than 50 local artists, including Saugatuck native Katie Doucette, founder of Polka Dot Mitten. Her collection features vibrant Michigan-themed home goods, including coasters, large and small mugs, trinket dishes, car stickers, necklaces and kitchen towels, all designed to pay tribute to The Mitten in a fresh and fashion-forward manner.

When she’s not writing or editing for WLM, you’ll find Kate out and about in downtown Grand Rapids, working on a craft project or scrolling through cat videos on social media. Reach out to her at:
