ABOUT ROSE HILL CLASSICS
My vision for Rose Hill Classics is simple: to create classic, well-made clothing that is also ethically and responsibly produced.
“Rose Hill Classics is about getting back to the way we (or really our parents and grandparents) used to shop.”
My name is Sarah Lodge Tally. I’m a wife, mother to two children, and the creator of Rose Hill Classics. Born and raised in Nashville, Tenn., I’m what you’d call a lifelong Southerner. After attending undergrad at Sewanee: The University of the South, I attended law school at the University of Tennessee, where I met my husband, Trey. We got married in 2008 and have since had two beautiful children. When our family moved to Memphis in 2017, I jumped at the chance of career change, and, after practicing law for nine years, I focused all my energy into developing Rose Hill Classics.
It was around my daughter’s third birthday that I began contemplating the idea of starting a clothing line. I loved shopping for clothes for my daughter – always more fun than doing real work! When I began looking for what came next after “toddler” and “little girl” clothing, I was never able to find the styles and quality I wanted. For myself and my children, I prefer simple, classic, well-made clothes that are also ethically and responsibly produced. I struggled to find what I was looking for, so I decided to start my own clothing line based on these principles.
Designed and produced in the United States, Rose Hill Classics combines classic style with dependable quality. My clothing is designed to be the classic and effortless pieces in your daughter’s wardrobe that both you and she can feel good about. Unlike “fast fashion” that tends to wear down and fall apart after a few rounds in the wash, Rose Hill Classics clothing is made to be worn and to last.
“Most brands aren't transparent about their production stream, which is why I try to know as much as I can about each and every fabric I choose for Rose Hill Classics. I believe I owe that to my customers, and I promise to always be transparent about our production processes.”
-Sarah Tally, creator of Rose Hill Classics
THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME:
Rose Hill was the name of my great-grandmother Betty’s home in England. Originally from Staffordshire, England, Ethel Elizabeth “Betty” Rawle Masefield Lodge was a woman ahead of her time. As a young woman, she traveled to Australia and New Zealand, painting and mountain climbing as she explored the countries. It was for love and marriage that Betty left Rose Hill and moved from England to the small town of South Pittsburg, Tenn., in 1924 to begin her life as an American. I’ve always felt a strong connection to my great-granny, so I felt it was fitting to honor her legacy by naming my clothing line Rose Hill Classics.
