What is your business best known for?
April's Linens is best known for in home consultations. I bring my samples to my client's home and listen to what they ultimately want. I help them choose the perfect fabric, trim, color and monogram style. The finished product is truly one of a kind. I also personally deliver their beautiful linens to them in a pretty bag tied with a bow. I know that I have succeeded when they say, "April, I love it!"
When and how did your business get started?
I started April's Linens in 2010. I had worked at Mimi's Lingerie and Linens for over 25 years and when the store closed, the community lost a true friend. I wanted to bring back the tradition of service and knowledge to her loyal customers. I also wanted to offer them the same products that they had loved and relied on at Mimi's. They have been wonderfully supportive and I love every minute of it!
How did you choose the area you did for your business?
I have lived in the Lake Forest and Lake Bluff community my entire life. I love the area and I want to give something back to the place that I call home. My customers have become my friends and I love to help them find what they are looking for.
Does your business offer a special deals card or program?

I have recently opened a shop at 208 N. Waukegan Road in Lake Bluff. It is open by appointment to cater to designers and to clients more comfortable in a store setting. I also offer my favorite sleepwear, sachets, soaps, baby gifts, blankets, holiday gift items... April's Linens hosts Trunk shows on Saturdays with other vendors! Look for our signs and balloons and stop in!
