The K.Lane's Story (So Far)

A self described "Fashion Fanatic" since childhood, K.Lane's Boutique owner, Diana Schmidt, followed her passion into college, earning a degree in fashion merchandising. 

In 1992, she fulfilled a lifelong dream by opening her own fashion boutique in her hometown of Anthony, Kansas. She named the store KayLane’s Kloset--a combination of her two young daughters' middle names--and spent the next decade bringing unique fashion finds to her growing client base.  

In 2005 Diana opened a second location in Wichita and changed the name of both of her stores to K. Lane's Boutique. 2016 brought the fulfillment of another dream in the form of The Paisley Parrot fashion truck and began offering fashions with the Paisley Parrot label. 25 years after opening K.Lane's in Anthony, Diana made the decision in May of 2017 to close the store in order to be able to spend more time sourcing fashion and accessories for her clients. The final days, say Diana, were both some of the most emotional and the most rewarding as clients who had become friends and family convened on the store for equal doses of shopping and memory sharing. (Check out the 25 Years of K.Lane's photo gallery for images of the K.Lane's Family through the years!)

Diana's goal has always been to bring her clients clothes that they get compliments on and she and her staff of stylists are committed to making every single client feel like they are part of the family. 

K.Lane’s is a shop that offers fashion that is both on-trend and individualistic and Diana's hand picked inventory changes every day.  From design houses to independent fashion designers; hand-made purses from Australia to jewelry and home goods made by talented (and often local) artists, K. Lane's Boutique offers an exceptional shopping experience featuring uncommon and beautiful fashion and finds from Kansas and around the world. 

In addition to fashions you’ll freak out about, at K.Lane’s and The Paisley Parrot there is always a rotating selection of uncommon jewelry, accessories, shoes and unexpected finds. Come in today and see for yourself!

I'm so in the know--I get to see all the new fashions before they hit the floor. Be jealous. And be my friend. It's a good thing. :-)

I'm a stylist and a personal trainer. That means I can help you find kick a** fashions and I can also help you actually kick a**!

I love life. I love fashion. I love people and most of all I love that God put all of those things together for me. 
Oh! And beer. I love beer, too.
