The Sweet Lemon is a locally-owned and operated specialty gift store that aims to serve the Town of Poolesville and surrounding communities with unique, quality goods, cheerful customer service, and a joyful atmosphere.

Katie Horan (that's me!), along with my husband and business partner, PJ Horan, have been Poolesville residents along with our three children Johnny, Christopher, and Hallie since 2014. I started my teaching career at Poolesville High School in 2005, and have since changed career paths to operate our gift boutique.

Inspired to provide a variety of gifts and home goods conveniently to Poolesville residents and surrounding communities, we started The Sweet Lemon to serve our town with something we felt we were missing--a local spot for a great gift that we don't have to leave town to buy.

We encourage shopping, visiting, and smiling.  Happy to *squeeze* you in any time!
