Fashionista and local style guru, Lindsay Tia Reilly is at it again. Expanding from her well-loved line of American-made bags and accessories, Lindsay can now add boutique-owner to her (long) list of credentials.
The Cue, Dorchester’s latest “style lounge for the trendy professional” is located at 12 Ericsson Street, next to the Boston Winery. Home to trendy fashion in a oh-so-chic setting, The Cue is perfect for personal styling appointments, last minute outfits, and girls nights galore. We caught up with Lindsay for a quick Q&A on her new project and how we can get on Cue…
We’re loving the website and the overall chic, “young professional” vibe. How did the name “The Cue” come about?
“The Cue” is a play on my hometown “Quincy” from all the support over the years while building Lindsay Tia Inc. “The Cue” also represents being on point and how our styles leave our clients “On Cue” or “Looking their best!”
How would you describe The Cue in just a few words?
The Cue for anyone who hasn’t been there is like shopping in your living room. A local style lounge carefully curated for the trendy professional. It’s for all of us that want to look our best, whether you’re going from the boardroom to the bar room, from day to night, or from busy weekdays to lazy Sundays. The Cue has everything we need to feel confident in our look – anytime, anywhere.
Why Dorchester? Have you been seeing a rise in fashionistas in Boston’s biggest neighborhood?
We chose Dorchester based on the space we found while also still remaining close to where we built Lindsay Tia. Dorchester is in-between Boston and Quincy where both of our followings come from. Our easy and convenient space allows for any Bostonian to pop by, book an appointment, or to shop online 24/7.
Tell us a little about your space. How did you design it? What inspired you?
The Cue space is unlike anything else, it’s truly an experience. I wanted our clients to feel comfortable while shopping, when hosting a shopping night, or when they book a style appointment. The space is curated with a lounge where we hold our style meetings and talk all things fashion. We utilize our big space for events and different opportunities in the area. It’s a little bit of New York outside of Boston!
What’s been your favorite moment so far?
My favorite part of The Cue is the overall feel of what we created. Whether it’s the “Wow” faces of our clients walking in the door seeing the space for the first time, the overwhelming feedback of our quality selection, and a place that just simply feels like home to all!
Who can shop at The Cue?
The Cue is curated for the trendy professional trying to look their best from boardrooms to bar rooms. The day to night look and business casual transformation in the work industry have totally changed office attire code. We help curate the right looks that allow you to be casual to professional yet staying up to date on the latest trends. With a selection for women and our custom men’s clothing line for the perfect fit!
What inspired you to dive into the fashion world? What do you love about Boston’s fashion scene?
Sewing since a young age and designing handbags since I was 14, fashion has just been in my blood. Being from Boston I was able to utilize my connections and support to follow my dreams to help people build confidence through their clothing!

Pronounced like “parade with an M,” Mairead loves all things nautical, Vineyard-y, and Irish (in case the name didn’t give it away). She can often be found bopping around Adams Village , testing out the local nacho scene, and running marathons strictly for the post-race beverages.
