Three local businesses that offer various amenities have added more services to Patterson’s community. Lily Lane Tanning and Treasures has added to its inventory children’s clothing, while Web Design Just For You aims to keep websites fresh and updated. Dr. Jeremy West, orthodontist, has also announced a new oral surgeon on board to accommodate the growing number of residents.

Lily Lane Tanning and Treasures

Lily Lane Tanning and Treasures, under the ownership of Patterson native Tami Luna, still features jewelry, bracelets, purses, scarves, accessories, photo frames, pens pencils, wine stoppers at the store at 100 N. Fourth St., Suite 3.

But new changes are abound as Luna changed the name of the shop from Lainey Rays Tanning and Treasures to Lily Lane a few months ago, and has added children’s clothing and children’s accessories to the store offerings. Luna features handmade items made by local artists and stocks vintage furniture, such as a chairs, ottomans and footstools.

“We are here and we have unique and different items,” Luna said. “You don’t have to go out of town to shop — shop local.”

Lily Lane still offers tanning options and tanning packages. Clients can choose tanning options from a “shot bar,” where clients can try tan lotion samples before they buy a larger bottle of the product.

Lily Lane Tanning and Treasures, 100 N. Fourth St., Suite 3, is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and closed on Sunday and Monday. For information: 892-7717.

Websites are up and running

Web Design Just For You, owned and operated by local resident Eileen Forte, has been based in Patterson since 2011. Web Design Just for You has listed among the its clients local businesses such as Damasco Fine Foods and Spirits, Patterson Health and Fitness and Dominic Farinha for the Patterson City Council website a few years ago, as well as serving clients from the Central Valley to the Bay Area to the state of Texas.

Forte has a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science and started doing websites 12 years ago. She establishes, maintains and makes changes for her clients’ unique websites.

Forte says she primarily helps clients that don’t have the time or the knowledge to re-create professional websites. Her husband, Gene Forte contributes as a marketing manager and offers advice and suggestions for local customers.

“I found I could understand the concept pretty easily,” Forte said. “When things change, I can change the website — I provide services that keep the website fresh. It’s not just having a website — the whole idea is to market your business.”
