Sercy Lane


One year ago, Katie Clark Sanford and Lauren Louviere Monroe opened their chic Southern children’s boutique, Sercy Lane. Both women are moms to young children and adore fashion. They felt there was a gap in the regional toddler clothing market and purchased most of their children’s clothing online. "After our babies turned one it was hard to find anything locally with the classic style we love,” says Monroe, who also owns Mimosa Boutique on Ernest Street. "So we decided to take the risk and open Sercy Lane!”

Monroe and Sanford grew up down the street from each other and say they are more like sisters than friends and business partners. They wanted their store to have a unique name with a special meaning. The word "sercy” means "an unexpected gift” in French. Their logo depicts the two of them swinging under an oak tree as kids. "We prayed about the name and our vision for our store and God showed us this image of our sweet innocent kids playing under the same trees we played under as kids and Him watching over all of us. The store is really special to us!” says Monroe.

At Sercy Lane, they love the classic children’s clothing look. "We believe in dressing babies as babies!” says Monroe. "For girls, we love sweet dresses and bloomer sets with knee high socks and shoes for fall. And don’t forget a bow for their hair! We love to layer, as well. A Peter Pan collar shirt layered under a jumper is a perfect fall look. For boys, we love Jon Jons and short sets paired with knee high socks and saddle oxfords. This is such a classic boy look. Think Prince George! We also love the more casual looks of cute printed shorts with a smocked t-shirt and a pair of our Chus sneakers.” 

Sercy Lane carries a wide variety of name brands including James & Lottie, Little English, The Beaufort Bonnet Co, and Lullaby Set. They also sell shoes. Chus offers cute canvas shoes that are great for playtime. Footmates, a classic brand since 1968, are great shoes to start walking because they have great support.”

Monroe says Sercy Lane offers traditional Southern clothing and specialty gift items up to age eight. "We provide a personalized shopping experience and love dressing your kids for everyday life as well the most important occasions and portraits.”

Sercy Lane is located at 1301 E McNeese St Suite 105, Lake Charles. For more information, call
