Whoa, Baby

The stork delivers Baby Banou to St. Paul

Baby Banou was birthed by Darya Lucas, who left a law career to pursue her passion for kids’ retail. Lucas sells modern, stylish clothes for little ones in an environment that is kid-friendly in a Martha-Stewart-thoughtful way, not a kitschy one: Magnet boards distract busybodies, Juicy Juice fends off meltdowns, and stroller parking keeps shopping obstacle-free. Don’t forget to look up: The pomander mobile mesmerizes adults and Björn-bundled alike. 792 Grand Ave., St. Paul, 651-340-0062, babybanou.com
