Colors of Spring

One of the best pleasures of spring is taking a stroll through a well-tended garden and marveling at all the beautiful greenery and the flowers in their menagerie of colors. From soft white tulips to the eye-catching orange poppies, the colors of spring demand to be admired.

The same could be said for the clothing at Liliana Downtown in Modesto. Opened late last year by Liliana Sousa-Downs, the women’s fine apparel and accessories boutique brings the 209 area styles of easy elegance and understated luxury. Sousa-Downs, who has years of experience in the fashion industry and as a stylist, serves as a fashion concierge to help guests cultivate a style all to their own.

Showcasing the styles from Liliana Downtown are mother and daughter duos from the 209, who are sharing some of the best fashion advice they’ve been given.

Liliana Downtown is located at 1525 J St. in Modesto.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
