Our Story









About us

Located in the heart of the historic Laguna Village, our family-owned T-shirt Company at Laguna Beach has been building a culture of community for four decades. We offer carefully curated high quality t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other unique items for visitors that create memories to last a lifetime. 

We pride ourselves as being a “t-shirt shop with a conscience” by partnering with nonprofits to make a positive impact, while also highlighting talented local artists and craftspeople.


The Father - Till Segal

Tillman Segal is a renaissance man who has reinvented his life at 76 and has started a new career. A business man all his life where painting was a hobby, he later decided to devote his time and his passion to embarking on a new endeavor as a professional artist, painting and publishing kids’ art books. Amazingly, Tillman can look at a photo and from there create an amazing work of art. His scope of subjects includes landscapes, beaches, seascapes, and man’s best friend.

Tillman is also a passionate animal lover and paints custom watercolor pet portraits upon request. He can also do a painting from a photo you have of a place or scene that has been meaningful in your life. 

If you are interested in commissioning Tillman for a custom painting contact Tillman at tillmanpaints@gmail.com and send a photo and he will get back to you with pricing and timing.


The Daughter - Lauren Segal

Tillman's daughter Lauren Segal came into the picture 10 years ago as a co-owner. Lauren worked in the store as a teenager, and after college, she ran Mr. Tilly’s, then Decades, before taking off for a life in the Costa Rican jungle. She later turned to her passions for music, justice and giving back working 20 years in the international development and criminal justice reform sectors.  Lauren has now brought those passions into the store. Inspired by the incredibly rich history and happenings that make Laguna so special and customers can witness her influence with more environmentally-friendly products, items made locally, and positive messaging.

Lauren is also the founder and director of Give a Beat - non-profit organization that harnesses the power of music to generate social good.

Give a Beat’s mission is to use the power of music as a pathway to healing and opportunity for those impacted by the criminal justice system. Learn more www.giveabeat.org
