Wyatt Lily NYC Collection


The popular Upper West Side boutique launches signature collection for summer. 

After the successful launch of Wyatt Lily NYC, New York’s children’s boutique that caters to the city’s most discerning mini-fashionistas, owner Rachel Uchitel is débuting the Wyatt Lily NYC collection, inspired by her three-year-old daughter. The boutique’s signature collection is playful with a dash of New York chic –just like its namesake.

“I’ve created the collection to be both whimsical and practical with a bit of an edge,” Rachel says. “Our clothing is meant to be fashionable- but it’s just as important that young children can play all day in all of our pieces, too.”

Sparkly star-accented tutu dresses, flowy tiered halter dresses ideal for warm summer days, breezy swing tops, tees with cheeky sayings, and stylish harem pants round out the playground-friendly collection. Soft t-shirts and tanks declaring, “Queen of New York” and “Star” in a rainbow of glitter color choices complement the gold star-accented skirts, available in summery lavender, teal and pink hues.

Sizes range from 6 months to 6T; select custom styles are now available up to size 12. Other custom tees and dresses are also available through a free personal shopping service, which Rachel encourages all customers to experience: decerning help choosing and creating the best gift or outfit the store has to offer.

072215_CRTPost_WyattLily_StorefrontSince opening in December 2013, Wyatt Lily NYC has quickly become a shopping destination for parents nationwide looking for the best children’s brands curated by Rachel –with help from three-year-old, Wyatt Lily herself. She says, “As a mother, I want Wyatt to be as creative and carefree as she can be.”

Rachel’s keen eye for micro-fashion has led to numerous accolades for the boutique, including 2015’s Best of Manhattan Award for Children’s Clothing Store and Best Kids’ Birthday Presents in New York Magazine’s Best of New York issue this year. Located at 290 Columbus Avenue near 74th Street in Manhattan, Wyatt Lily NYC also ships to customers worldwide from WyattLily.com.

Important Info – Recalled Products for Children


Recalled toys, sports equipment and furniture for infants and children cause thousands of injuries, even death.

Has This Ever Happened to You?

  • Maria searches a swap meet for the perfect stroller for her baby due in a couple of weeks. When she settles on one to purchase, she has no idea that this particular stroller is on a Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) list of recalled products known to cause injury and deaths.
  • To help save money, Dylan’s family and friends give the mother-to-be used baby items that they had purchased for their own children back in the day.

These are common ways baby care items, clothing and accessories are recycled through a network of thoughtful people who are trying to help, but often don’t realize that the toys, sports equipment and furniture they’re re-gifting are frequently recalled products.

Now, in an effort to keep children and babies from the increased danger of recalled items, Safe Kids California (SKC) is launching a program to educate the public about the danger of unknowingly purchasing or accepting products that have been recalled. The campaign’s centerpiece of public service announcements, or PSAs, recorded in English and Spanish showcase important safety messages about recalled items. While many items are safe, it is important that parents check the CPSC list when accepting new or used items.

“When we discovered that almost 30 percent of recalls in 2012 were children’s products, and that there were 230,000 emergency visits to the ER involving injuries from nursery items and toys, we knew that we had to take action,” says Iana Simeonov, project director from the Public Health Institute. “Our goal was to demystify and contextualize the process of children’s product recalls for consumers while making the information more accessible to English and Spanish speaking parents.”

Watch Here. The Wheels Make the World Go Round PSA highlights strollers and outdoor sports equipment, which are among the most frequently recalled products that can be recycled without warning through swap meets, garage sales, second-hand stores and among friends and family.

The Baby’s Day PSA uses a clever crib mobile visual to help parents understand that products for infants and toddlers are recalled more frequently than other products. To learn more, visit http://www.safekidscalifornia.org/recalls.

In addition to the new PSAs, the project includes a mobile-optimized Safe Kids California website, a Twitter stream of recalls and a “widget” that notifies users of important recalls directly from the CPSC in real time.

“SKC has the bandwidth to reach hundreds of thousands of parents,” Iana says. “With its help, we will roll out the content to Safe Kids coalitions and partner agencies in California and across the country.”

About the Children’s Product Recall Project
Safe Kids California is part of the Safe Kids Worldwide global network dedicated to keeping kids safe from preventable childhood injury – the number one cause of death among children ages one to 19. Funded by the Public Health Institute in Oakland, CA, the fiscal agency is the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership (FCCP), dedicated to enhancing the education, health and well-being of the children, youth, and adults of the community.
