LilyToad Loves Portland

This is the third reincarnation for LilyToad, the website. Originally associated with a retail shop located in St. Johns (which sadly, has closed), it is now a source of information for parents in the Portland area.

  • If you are looking for a fun activity – we have suggestions.
  • If shopping local is important to you – check out the Shop Local section of this site.
  • Interested in events for any month of the year – we recommend some sites to help you with that.
LilyToad is a work in progress… Anyone with a suggestion for an event, activity, shop, or resource is invited to share with the Portland community. All comments are welcome. If you would like to contact LilyToad please email us at .

Thank you for your support…

Who is behind this blog?

I’ve received a few messages asking how this website changed from a retail store into an informational site. And on top of that – Who am I? Well… I’m a mother of two and a grandmother of four. I’ve been a graphic designer for many years now and I’m the one who designed/hosted the LilyToad website from its inception.

It has always impressed me how Portland Mamas are so passionate about being Moms and so supportive of one another. When I realized that the LilyToad website was no longer needed to support the retail shop I decided to recycle it into an informational site. It’s my hope that you will view this site as another outlet for tips and information.

I’d like my efforts to evolve into a community involved site. The more sharing – the better. Extend a hand to support local businesses. Offer suggestions and advice to new parents. Help struggling parents know that they are not alone. Come on, Portland Parents – let me hear from you!

Again, thank you for your support…
