Little Extras Lifestyle

Our boutique is more than a business.

We’re part of a community.

The Little Extras Lifestyle boutique is dedicated to creating a compelling shopping experience, both in-store and online.

Our boutique is more than a business. We’re part of a community.  Little Extras Lifestyle grew out of our connection with the beautiful town of Forbes on the banks of the Lachlan river. Our goal is to bring a world class shopping experience into the heart of regional NSW. That all starts with the owner Leigh Bartholomaeus and her dedication to her customer’s needs.  She wants every one of her customers to feel seen, heard and uplifted by the L.E.L staff. It’s that customer centric focus that inspires Leigh and her team to create an all-inclusive shopping experience, both in-store and online. At the heart of that experience is a curated range of quality and affordable products that inspire and empower women to look and feel beautiful, confident and comfortable, both inside and out. This is the place to go when you’re thinking of perfect basics that you will love and wear forever. Or this season’s must have fashion pieces, in fits for every shape and size and accessories that complete any outfit. 

The other part of that equation is our dedication to every customer’s individual needs and taste.  At L.E.L, we love what we do, and we think one of the most important parts of any great shopping experience is fun… (yes Leigh, we hear you, productive fun!!).  So whether it’s in-store or online, we always want you to leave feeling comfortable, confident and inspired!

Buy from the Bush

Celebrate the coming together of city and country.

BUY FROM THE BUSH

As a proud regional store a core part of our mission has been embracing BUY FROM THE BUSH to celebrate the coming together of city and country.  BUY FROM THE BUSH draws attention to the businesses that need support on all levels during the droughts, floods and hard times that make up so much of life outside of the cities.  It's a wonderful way of showcasing the beautiful products that are being created and sourced by regional shopkeepers, creators and makers. We think they deserve to be celebrated and are proud to be part of this initiative.

Being immersed in the wonderful Australian landscape means we care about protecting our natural heritage. So we’re doing our best to make our business more sustainable with a series of initiatives that reduce plastic waste and use products that are recyclable or bio compostable, so they’re easier on the planet.  Many of our brands are Australian owned with ethical, sustainable production, so you can feel good about your purchase knowing you’re helping to make Australia a better place.

Our dedication to our Region and our Customers

Personalised Service

It’s our dedication to our region, our town, our customers and our planet which makes us special. You’ll feel that connection when you come and see us in the store. But even online you’ll know that it’s us on the other side of the screen and not a computer in some faraway warehouse.

So, whatever it is you need, pop in-store or call us for some personalised service – we are always happy to help!

Thanks for taking your time getting to know us!

Lots of Love, Team L.E.L xo
