Carrie Bradshaw once said, “I like my money right where I can see it—hanging in my closet.” With the addition of a new boutique, we’ll now see it at Mercantile on Morris in the form of Lifelyles. The retail store will sell gifts and interiors in its first brick-and-mortar location at the new mixed-use development.

“Out with the old, in with the new” does not apply here. Owner Peyton Lyles’ aims to create beautiful spaces while incorporating old with new. Lifelyle’s products, which include home décor, gifts and daily essentials, will also be environmentally safe.

“As a management professional with experience in sales, service, and operations, my focus is to provide the community with a place that makes them feel at home. I have a strong desire for interior design, gift-giving, and the environment, so why not mix it all together?

Peyton Lyles, Owner, Lifelyles
