Emily Hollister


Hello and welcome to my shop! I’m Emily. I’m a wife to my one and only childhood crush and a mom to the sweetest, silliest, and squishiest identical twin boys.

I’m an early bird go-getter, an afternoon walker, and a dinner party entertainer. I believe in always being prepared, which includes having my pantry fully stocked with back ups and having the perfect outfit for every occasion.

After graduating from college with a degree in business and working in retail for several years, I married my passion for fashion with my knack for business and opened up my very own shop, named after my grandmothers.

I couldn’t have imagined, back then, what my little shop has evolved into now. It’s become a home away from home, where I’ve been able to connect with the most wonderful people and play my part in supporting the Nantucket community.

It has become a place where we call our customers dear friends and where we celebrate the little things in life.

This makes me truly happy.

Meet The
Milly & Grace Team

  • Caroline Ott

    brand curator & sales associate

    Caroline is is a to-do list maker, perpetual thinker, and daydreamer. She’s also my little sister, who has been an employee at the shop since the very first day we opened. Over the years, Caroline was trained to take on more responsibility and she became my right hand. She is responsible for overseeing our brand image, managing our social media accounts, and helping out at the shop.

  • Patty "Pom-Pom" Ott

    creative director

    Patty is an accessory queen, a lipgloss aficionado, and the ultimate hostess with the mostest. She’s also my creatively talented mom. Pom Pom is her “grandma” name. It suits her perfectly because she is the most dedicated cheerleader to her three daughters. That and she’s also likely to break out into old cheer routines upon hearing certain songs. She's responsible for curating the shop windows, as well as assisting me with buying the shop inventory in NYC.

  • Fatima Portillo

    sales associate

    Fatima is a coffee lover and Nantucket sunset chaser. She is the hardest worker and the absolute sweetest. She’s a recent Nantucket High School graduate and will be the first in her family to attend college. We couldn’t be more proud of her!
