About The Blue Béret

Located at 128 E. Lancaster Ave in Wayne, The Blue Béret is a local woman-owned boutique that has thrived for the past few years! The Blue Béret started as a pop-up Main Line Co-op as a three-week experiment that turned into the cute store it is today! Founder Melissa Sinni graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology. She fell in love with Wayne in 2012, so in love, she decided to move her family here in 2013 from Manhattan! Melissa bases her styles and products on comfortable clothing you and your child will enjoy while still being a stylish, flattering, and functional main-line mom style. So, moms can stay polished and pretty but have access to easy-to-wear clothing! Melissa Sinni is a mother of four, so she totally understands all the struggles on both ends!
