… you are looking at the new owner of [my all time f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e women's shop] lola!! [pinch me] the past few months have been a complete whirlwind in which i have relocated all the way from manhattan to my hometown in arkansas, have gained an amazing business partner, and attended my first market as a store owner! [bonus: i have most recently been playing the fun role of subcontractor]
background: my dear friend jade and her sister lisa opened the doors of lola 9+ years ago, and have successfully built such a beautiful brand as a contemporary women's boutique specializing in luxury basics, premium denim, and one-of-a-kind event pieces. bragging rights: lola is known as one of the top fashion destinations in the state, having been named one of the 50 Best Boutiques in 2009 by Lucky Magazine and Best Boutique in Arkansas in 2012 by ELLE.com. in a nutshell, big shoes to fill…

while ensuring that the in-store experience is exceptional. we have been diligently working to source cool new designers to compliment all the familiar lines that die-hard lola shoppers expect [i.e. elizabeth & james, vince, haute hippie, equipment, current / elliott, a.l.c, joie, j.brand, etc]! we are particularly excited about all of the new jewelry, accessory, shoe and handbag lines we will be introducing this fall, many being exclusive to lola in arkansas… think clare vivier [beautiful everyday clutches + handbags], innovative shoes from brazil-based schutz, chandelier earrings by suzanna dai, chic and sophisticated watches from sweden-based daniel wellington and specialty pieces by VEDA [consider your hunt for the perfect leather jacket over]
