For the western side of life

Nestled on Main Street in Escalon, Patched Pumpkins Boutique is bringing a new take on Western style to the 209.

“I call it modern Western,” said boutique owner Heather McLain. “It’s not so many pearl snaps and button downs. It’s more everyday attire. The motto here is “For the Western Side of Life.”

McLain first launched her foray into fashion in 2019 when she opened a baby boutique, doing pop-up shops and online sells. As time went by McLain decided to rebrand as a women’s clothing shop and recently added men’s fashion.

“When I rebranded into women’s clothing, I wanted to be able to provide affordable every day attire to your modern-day western woman,” McLain said.

Everything in the shop has been hand-picked by McLain with an eye towards wearability and versatility. 

When it comes to summer fashion, McLain looks for pieces that have some bright colors and she can’t resist a good graphic T-shirt.

“I mean graphic tees are my daily go to,” said McLain. “You can always dress up or down a good graphic.”
