Midwest Living Review
In the heart of downtown Holland's vibrant shopping district, Tikal has been selling unique women's clothing for nearly two decades from a historical location with brick walls and the high ceilings that were so common at the turn of the century.
There's nothing old-fashioned about this merchandise though. Gauzy sundresses; nubby, hand-knitted sweaters; chunky jewelry; blouses and skirts that you won't find elsewhere populate the racks of this small store. Eileen Dwyer Van Linn, the boutique’s owner, sources her inventory of clothing and jewelry from around the world. Her goal? To grab fun yet sophisticated styles from up-and-coming designers before they become so well-known that average shoppers can no longer afford them.
We especially like the fact that Eileen doesn't carry the kind of clothing that requires the body of a teenager or a supermodel to look good in; these pieces are forgiving and flattering for everyone from young women to trendy 50-year-olds.
