Anyone who has been to The Sassy Flamingo in Trophy Club at 501 Trophy Lake Drive, # 314, right next to Starbucks, knows that this is a store like none other. Offering an extensive array of upscale women’s apparel, Corral Boots, hats, and accessories, along with custom-made jewelry and personally-designed children’s and infant specialty clothing and designs, The Sassy Flamingo is truly one of the most unique places to shop in the area.

Everything a woman needs to look and feel her best can be found in this comfortable and welcoming shop that has been a part of the Trophy Club community for the past three years and draws customers from around North Texas and beyond, even from other states, to enjoy the outstanding selection of apparel ranging in size from newborn to 4x. There are many clothing lines available at the shop, representing an array of fashion choices from gym and tennis wear, to boots and jeans, and even elegant dresses for that special occasion or Western Wedding!

Shirley - Owner and Leading Lady

At the heart of this incredible, fashion-forward boutique is Shirley Thornburg, owner and long-time Trophy Club resident. Shirley greets customers with true Texan hospitality and expertly assembles fitted, flattering, and fun ensembles which leave every customer feeling like a queen. After years of experience as a Vice Chairman of the International Committee at the Houston Livestock Show, Shirley is a pro when it comes to creating to-die-for Western Chic outfits for any and every special and casual event. She makes by hand the wide variety of jewelry stunningly displayed throughout the store, and thoughtfully customizes pieces for those who don’t see exactly what they are looking for already offered. She also personally selects each of the items and clothing lines in the store every month at seller’s markets, always making sure that the clothing is made from materials that are rich, high-quality, and comfortable to wear.

“When I see something cute at market, I think about who will wear it. Maybe I think of a particular customer who I know would just love the item, or maybe I think about who it would flatter, and I buy it for them.” – Shirley on her selection of clothing.

Linda - Right Hand Creative Guru

Add to Shirley’s fun and sparkling personality, her right-hand-business associate, Linda Davis, who creatively designs the shop’s Chic Baby infant and children’s clothing line, and you have an exceptional team. Linda not only hand-makes fashions for newborn photo shoots, birthday parties, weddings, and other special occasions, but she is available to personalize clothing and accessories for all of your needs. Looking for a one-of-a-kind baby shower gift? Try purchasing a “Hat Box,” filled with matching outfits, accessories, gowns, blankets, picture frames, and even matching letters and bow towers to hang on the nursery wall! Feeling like getting into the school spirit? Linda personally designs spirit wear for any school of your choice that is sure to turn heads!

Nowhere else in North Texas will you find a boutique like The Sassy Flamingo. Shirley and Linda take their commitment to provide customers with outstanding service very seriously, even offering business cards touting their cell phone numbers in case you need to call or text them to request an item or need to stop by the shop outside of regular business hours. They encourage shoppers to bring back items that they aren’t 100% satisfied with, and even offer to hold pieces for customers who wish to come back and purchase at a later time. If you are looking for the absolute best shopping party for a group, the ladies at The Sassy Flamingo are happy to oblige, and will even provide refreshments!
