After completing her education, Annabeth moved to Los Angeles in order to start her career as a clothing manufacturer. She returned to Louisiana in 1997 and opened her children’s clothing store in the French Quarter in New Orleans. Her decision to open a children’s store was prompted by the fact that New Orleans at the time lacked having a recognized European clothing store for children. ‘Pippen Lane’ currently houses toys, shoes, linens, gifts, strollers, books, and much more. In 2011, Annabeth purchased the French clothing brand ‘Lylian Heirloom.’ The brand, which consists of handmade embroidery clothing, has been a part of ‘Pippen Lane’s’ inventory even before Anna purchased it.
