About Us

Eccentrics Boutique is a dream turned reality by Lauren Craig that began in September 2011. With a passion for fashion and an eye for style, Lauren created a modern and chic place for women to find inspiration. Our new showroom is a welcoming space where customers can socialize, try on new styles, and receive personal attention from the Eccentrics stylists. Customer service is the highest priority of Eccentrics and every customer can rest assured that they are important to us. We recognize that each style is different whether it be vintage, boho, dressy, or casual. Eccentrics Boutique carries something for everyone looking for something a little different in women's clothing. We want to appeal to all ages, sizes, and budgets. With many long distance requests via social media to ship favorite items, Lauren realized it was time to expand online.

We strive to “WOW” our customers every day. Lauren personally selects each item that arrives at the store to assure quality and visual appeal. We only buy the best in party dresses, fashion jewelry, women's shoes, blouses, and accessories for our store. Our goal is to always stay unique and on top of trends. Eccentrics Boutique is constantly changing and keeping our customers guessing. Lauren is up late brainstorming and researching new trends to keep Eccentrics Boutique fashion forward.

The name “Eccentrics” came from the fact that our customers are savvy and searching for something different. It is our mission to make that happen! So look around, find something you love and welcome to our “Eccentric” family!

 

Hello! I’m Lauren, owner and buyer of Eccentrics Boutique. I love helping women embrace their “eccentric” style every day!

While working daily to establish a successful business, I put just as much effort into raising a happy and healthy family that puts God first. I’m so fortunate to have a supportive husband and amazing son who encourage me to follow my dreams. After graduating from SIUC with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing, I set out to live a stylish and exciting life. I worked for high-end retailers and learned valuable business lessons. Southern Illinois called me home and I brought the city back with me. I believe in big hair, bright lipstick, lots of mascara, and shimmer is my favorite color…yes, I definitely consider “shimmer” a color!
