BeauKisses, Where Fun Meets Fabulous!

Our Story...

Owner Lisa Brown has operated a variety of specialty retail concepts throughout Central Texas beginning in 1998. Beau Kisses evolved from the original seasonal holiday store, Tis The Season, located at Lakeline Mall in Austin for 12 years. Tis The Season became a year-round specialty retail store in 2002 offering a diverse and rotating inventory selection based on trends as well as the various seasons throughout the year. After enjoying several years of success, a second location was opened in late 2009 called Beau Kisses at LaCenterra Cinco Ranch in  Katy, Texas.

This new location was named after the small community of Beaukiss, TX, located northeast of Austin, where owner Lisa Brown grew up. In late 2012 the Tis The Season was relocated to the new upscale development, The Trails of 620 in Austin, and was renamed Beau Kisses.

Lisa along with her management  team,  Laura Joy, Chrystal Vickers,  Christi Walsh, Vonda Ilseng and Melissa Harmon, bring over 65 years of combined retail and management experience to Beau Kisses.-

We make several trips to various markets each year culling through vast selections of gift and apparel items to put together a diverse and ever changing product mix.

Our mission: To provide an elevated eclectic shopping experience full of fun with premier customer service. We are proud that our team maintains personal relationships with our clientele and our communities.
