If you’ve strolled through Downtown Oakville lately, you might have noticed a head-turning new window display on Lakeshore Road. With its lingerie-clad mannequins and lively music playing from within the store, The Lovers Boutique is hard to miss.

Owner Patricie Coufalova describes the boutique as a “one-stop-shop” for all things sexy, from lingerie to adult toys, from vendors like We-Vibe, Doxy, Lovense, CalExotics, Womanizer and Satisfyer. “All of my vendors are Canadian,” says Patricie. “I really love the fact that I can support Canadian businesses as well as work on my own.”

Products can also be purchased online at theloversboutique.ca, although Patricie encourages customers to visit the store to browse products in person. “There are so many products in the boutique that might unexpectedly catch your eye,” she says.

In addition, with her years of experience in the industry, she can also answer any questions customers might have about specific products. “My goal is to be an educational resource for customers who come into the boutique. I know it might be nerve-wracking for some to come in and ask questions, but I take pride in knowing I’ve helped people become more confident with their sexuality.”

Since opening in September, Patricie has fallen in love with Downtown Oakville. “It’s so lively and diverse,” she says. “I love the fact that people can come downtown to walk the streets, go shopping, and go sit at a café at the same time. Downtown Oakville has everything, and the people are just so warm and welcoming.”

The Lovers Boutique is located on the lower level of 300 Lakeshore Road East, between Trafalgar and Reynolds. Visit them online at theloversboutique.ca or check out their Instagram @theloversboutique to see what’s new in store!
