What's Hot in Celebs' Favorite Shops: Petit Tresor

04/24/2008 at 01:00 PM ET

Are you ready to take another trip out shopping with the stars? This month we’re going to Petit Tresor. With shops in Brentwood and on Robertson in Los Angeles, Petit Tresor is one of the hottest places to shop and be seen.

Who has shopped there:

Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Garner, Kimberly Quaid, Melanie Brown, Gwen Stefani, Isla Fisher, Jennifer Meyer and Tobey Maguire, Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey, Eva Longoria, Paris Hilton, Halle Berry and Nicole Richie.

The Story behind the Store:

When co-owners and single mothers Nina Takesh and Samantha Winch opened Petit Tresor more than five years ago, they both knew that they loved "all things baby." And they had a great eye for putting together nurseries. Nina and Sam grew up together and went to school together at the Lycee Francais — They both have traveled extensively in France and Europe. Their goal was to bring all of their favorite beautiful  European baby and toddler things to the United States – under one roof. And so they did, Petit Tresor means "little treasure."

Cashmereset The Vibe:

When you walk into Petit Tresor, whether it’s the original boutique in West Hollywood on trendy Robertson Boulevard or the new one in Brentwood on San Vicente Boulevard, you’re sure to be struck by the fact that all of the colors — of the furniture, the bedding, the clothing, the toys — are all soft, in whites and pastels, and are very soothing. This is done to create an easy and calm shopping experience. Furniture is in one section, and clothing, gifts, toys and books are all in other organized sections. A salesperson can walk you through the store and assist you with every item you’ll need from the moment you come home from the hospital. Walking through the store you’ll find lots of expectant moms with their mothers, partners or girlfriends. While you are there to shop, Nina and Sam will take you through your entire online registry in person.

Robbieadrian Who has registered there:

Registries of celebrities are private but Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were not shy about registering at Petit Tresor!

What the celebrities shop and register for:

Most celebrities that shop at the store also have their nurseries designed by Petit Tresor and purchase most of the major items themselves. It’s the "hard to find" or luxury items that end up on their registries with items ranging from Adiri baby bottles to organic blankets from Robbie Adrian. Layette items from Petit Bateau and Kissy Kissy  are always popular with celebrity shoppers and items that celebs are gifted with from Petit Tresor include gorgeous photo albums with silver heart rattles, cashmere stuffed animals, diaper bags by Mia Bossi and cashmere outfits.

Special Services for pampered parents & celebs:

Petit Tresor provides a detailed registry service where the owners walk you through the store and show you everything you might need for your nursery, for yourself for the hospital and on return home, and everything the baby will need from day one. If you’re having a baby shower, Petit Tresor will deliver all of the items for which you were registered directly to the event in one shipment.

For special clients the store provides a concierge service; Every season they’ll send clothing and accessory items for your children, customized to your taste. What you like you keep, what you don’t you send back. This way Petit Tresor clients can enjoy the Petit Tresor shopping experience even when they are in far flung places, filming on location and unable to travel to LA.

Nina and Sam also travel to their clients to assist with their nursery design, whether they’re in San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, Miami or New York. They’ve even traveled together to London and Dubai for one special client!

i love that the address has 1/2 below it. that’s so fun. :)

it’s nice that these women own the store, started it themselves and all. sounds like their dream come true, so good for them!

I don’t quite get the allure of this store. Isn’t this the store with the staff that is constantly outing pregnant celebs before they are ready to tell the public and telling the press/paparrazzi about their purchases, what kind of gender specific clothing they purchased etc.. also, what gifts they received from other celebs. It seems very unprofessional to me. I used to work for Gucci and Neiman Marcus and employees were never allowed to disclose that type of information.

Elyse on

I thought the same thing Tara. I thought it was ironic under the “who has registered there” section it says that that is kept private. I kind of chuckled because I have seen so much press about what celebs have registered for what there. Doesn’t seem very private to me! :)

If you don’t want the world to know you are pregnant…you don’t go shopping on Robertson Blvd for baby items! It seems pretty obvious to me.

I’m with Tara and Elyse. Petit Tresor has been behind numerous leaks of information. It’s an odd way to advertise yourself as an elite store, especially when you are “leaking” things that didn’t happen…like Britney and Jamie Lynn shopping together for blue things a few months ago. I would feel very uncomfortable going near that store as a female celebrity, pregnant or not.

IVY on

NO OFFENSE, BUT WHAT A CRUMMY LOOKING STORE FROUNT. NO CHARM, UGLY WINDOW DRESSING! I’M SO SUPRISED, WHAT IS THE BIGGGG DEAL. JUST BECOUSE STARS GO THERE???? ANYHOW I HAVE ONE WORD “OVERRATED” SORRY FRENCHY”S BUT YOU DO GOSSIP ALOT TO THE PAPS. I WOULD NEVER GO THERE.. ANYWAYS IT’S ALL ABOUT GREEN THESE DAYS ANYWAYS. BON VOAGE. Your store will not be trendy anymore.

I’ve been to the Robertson store and it is a lovely looking store. Unfortunately, my experience the last time I was there (a few weeks ago) convinced me that the staff just isn’t helpful or friendly. I had gone there with plans to purchase a rug and some other items for my son. When I tried to go into the store the door was partially blocked by shipping boxes and it was very difficult to get in or out with my stroller. It was OBVIOUS that I was having a hard time and sadly, not one staff member tried to help me. One staffer looked at me and just looked away. I was the ONLY customer in this small store and got painfully minimal answers to my questions and not one staffer was interested in helping me. Too bad, I was ready to spend money, but after the less than friendly service I decided to take my “non-celebrity” money and spend it elsewhere. Very disappointing and over hyped.

lis- But that doesn’t make it right for Petite Tressor to out celebs’ pregnancies. While Petite Tressor maybe isn’t the best place to shop if you’re a celeb and don’t want the whole world to know you’re pregnant, it isn’t right for Petite Tressor to out their pregnancies, either.

Also, even if a celeb avoids Petite Tressor still might not keep them from outing their pregnancy. Petite Tressor is notorious for making stuff up just get publicity. For example, as janice pointed out, they reported that Britney and Jamie Lynn were shopping for blue things for Jamie Lynn’s baby-to-be…When in fact Jamie Lynn has stayed in the Lousiana area (she has made a few trips to Mississippi, which is where her boyfriend Casey apparently lives) since announcing her pregnancy.

I believe they also reported that Tom and Katie had come in asking about decorations for a baby boy’s room when Suri was about 11 months old (it was actually TMZ that broke the story, but how much do you want to be that it was Petite Tressor who “leaked” the story to them). Obviously, since Tom and Katie still have not had any more kids since Suri, that story was false.

In otherwords, a celebrity can very easily avoid Petite Tressor…But that won’t neccesarily stop the store from “leaking” stuff about them!

We all love what celebrities wear.But I think we should realize that they are rich and thats their profession to wear such clothes. I think we should get carried away watching all this.
