Thirty-five years later, Lyn has expanded to now own and operate 8 unique store locations in MA & CT! Lyn and her buying staff make sure to interpret today's most exciting fashion trends in NY & LA for the discriminating taste of our clientele.

Lyn has been honored to be a part of many community organizations, and serves on a number of Boards, including the Board of Trustees at Moravian College (her alma mater). She has made it a priority to get involved in the communities her stores serve; "Doing well by doing good" is one of the core values of the Lyn Evans company, and most recently has been reinforced with the awarding of the RAM Awards of Excellence in Community Service.
