Get to Know Marilyn Reed: Lily Atelier's New Owner
Lily Atelier is the absolute perfect fit for me. It’s a fast moving and exciting environment that will allow me to use my business background to expand our demographic and product offerings. Dawn (Lily Atelier’s Founder) used her creative eye and fashion talents to build a very solid business. I will use my business and technology background to grow and expand our reach, adding business processes, a website that will include online sales, new social media platforms such as a YouTube Channel and last, but certainly not least, a Point of Sale system and other automated tools to streamline daily workloads.
During my career in corporate America, what gave me additional fulfillment was getting involved in women’s organizations — I love to mentor women in business. I mentored many 20, 30 and 40-somethings in the technology business, which is still very much a man’s world. I encourage women to look at careers in STEM — Science Tech, Engineering and Math. Being in this position, I have an opportunity to make an impact helping women in business, and getting involved in new local, regional and national women’s organizations. Of most importance to me today is making a difference in our local community – both on a business and a social level.
Lily Atelier is about WOMEN! All Women! It’s not just that petite model type. Our clothing is specially selected to fit a wide range of body types so you can rest assured that we can find exactly what you need to wear to that special occasion.

Lily Atelier’s Founder
Dawn Stanchfield opened the store in 2003 in Downtown Camas and ignited a renaissance in an area that desperately needed a boost. Dawn’s vision started drawing customers to the area, which eventually brought in additional retail shops and turned Lily Atelier into a destination women’s boutique.
