Our Beginings

Originally opened as “Susy K” in 1984, the store became the Lilypad in 2007.  For decades it has been a place that parents, grandparents & families have loved to come, knowing they could find clothing, toys and accessories different than anywhere else around.  Coming to the store is a Rehoboth Beach vacation tradition for a lot of families, and I am proud to be a part of that.  I am excited to be bringing the store online & hope you love it as much as we do!

About the owner


With over 18 years of retail sales and management experience in Rehoboth Beach, Kimberly Carey (Kim) always dreamed of owning her own boutique.  After having her own children, a daughter and son, Kim's interest quickly turned to children's fashion and accessories.   Continuing the Lilypad's tradition of offering residents and visitors alike unique and high quality clothing, accessories and gifts was the perfect opportunity for Kim to achieve her dream.  Scouting out brands in Manhattan, South Carolina, California, and throughout the country and world, Kim is excited to provide Rehoboth Beach-goers access to her favorites while continuing to carry the brands Lilypad-shoppers have come to love.
