Ditto Boutique moves to Lakewood's Hillside Village

Expanding on its mission of celebrating both designer and vintage clothes, Ditto Boutique recently moved to Hillside Village. The 2,500-square-foot Lakewood shop at 6465 E. Mockingbird Lane is owned by Jane DeNike, a stylist with more than 20 years of experience selling luxury brands.

"Ditto's popularity has grown so much that its former home on West Lovers Lane in Bluffview just wasn't enough," said DeNike, who formerly worked for Macy's and Jeremy's in San Francisco and Wilkes Bashford. "The new store allows us to offer even more luxury items and more clothes, shoes and accessories from famous designers, including Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Jimmy Choo and others."

Ditto also expanded its hours. It's now open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

"Whether it's a Chanel skirt or a Gucci bag, we know customers shop at Ditto to find something special to add to their wardrobes," said DeNike, who plans to expand the store again in a year or so. "

Ditto carries a wide selection of clothing in sizes 0 through 16, as well as few items in larger sizes. There's also a wide selection of jewelry, sunglasses and other accessories.

"I also have Marc Jacobs handbags and shoes by Tory Burch, Burberry, YSL, Miu Miu, Prada and Manolo Blahnik," DeNike said.

Lower-priced, new items directly from the clothing markets also are available, and Ditto sells Roma Boots.

Ditto welcomes consignments year round. Spring, gently worn pieces and items with price tags still attached are accepted from January through June; fall items are received July through December.

"We use a scale of fair-market value for pricing all items," DeNike said. "We have a constant need for smaller sizes in designer clothing, and for Chanel accessories, especially sunglasses."
