On April 1, 1989, two sisters, Debbie Herrington and Cindy Stone, turned their dreams into reality and opened the first HerringStone's Boutique in Monroe, Louisiana. The sisters dreamt of bringing innovative and trendsetting fashion to their hometown. With a great deal of hard work, years of constantly targeting new trends, and seeking out the best brands and merchandise, Cindy and Debbie’s dream took off beyond the twin cities and HerringStone’s became a household name for women’s wardrobes across north Louisiana.
Over the years HerringStone's has transpired into a Louisiana staple boutique. The sisters created an iconic company and continue to do so with second-generation, Hanna Herrington Lavergne and Haley Herrington; hence our phrase two generations and growing. Branching out from the limbs of HerringStone's as a sister store, HeirLoom by HerringStone's evolved. HeirLoom, meaning something of value passed on from one generation to the next, was established in 2017 and continues to flourish.
What started as a small family business is slowly growing into something greater and we thank you for following along and supporting us! In addition to our website, HerringStone’s has five store locations in Louisiana: HerringStone's Monroe, HerringStone's Lafayette, HeirLoom By HerringStone’s Youngsville, HeirLoom By HerringStone's in Houma, and our newest addition HerringStone's Baton Rouge. Each storefront is a haven for style, fashion, and top of the line customer service.

Owner / Buyer | 2nd Generation
Coming from a family whose heritage is rooted in the fashion business, HerringStone's has always been a huge part of Haley's life. From watching her mother and aunt grow the business as a young girl, to working at her sister's store as a college student, Haley always knew she was meant to work in fashion. After graduating from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Haley decided to pursue her dreams and move to Los Angeles, California; the perfect place for aspiring fashion professionals. There, she was surrounded by the latest trends and gained immense experience in buying. But after three short years, Haley decided it was time for her to move back home to Louisiana, and reinstall her role in HerringStone's. Shortly after her return, Haley's life-long dream of maintaining her own boutique turned into actual plans - and the drafts for the Baton Rouge location were formed.
