LuLaRoe: Cute, Comfy Clothes for Women & Kids (+Giveaway!)

Cute & comfy for kids, too!

Cute & comfy for kids, too!

If you’ve had a chance to check out this year’s Holiday Gift Guide, then you’ve likely seen among the recommendations LuLaRoe clothing from local seller Jill O’Hanlon. And I’m highlighting it once again to provide a little more background on the fashion line — and because Jill is giving away a $100 gift certificate to shop her store to one lucky KFDC reader!

As noted in the gift guide, you’re likely already aware of LuLaRoe, as it’s been popping up all over social media in recent months. That was how I’d heard about it, too, but it was Jill who really introduced me to the clothes when we met for coffee and she brought along a whole rack of items for me to try on. I ended up leaving with a bunch because I liked them so much — a couple of dresses, leggings, a shirt, and some fun pieces for Sasha, too.

The clothes are as comfortable as they are flattering. They’re all made of really soft material that fits well, clinging to or hanging right on all sizes and shapes. There are several standard styles that come in a variety of prints and colors. Because they’re so popular, the leggings could be called their signature piece, buttery soft (so, so comfy… I think they’re actually called “Butter Leggings”) and in lots of fun patterns.

The interesting thing about LuLaRoe is how it’s sold. The clothes are available through independent business owners at pop-up boutiques, online in private shopping groups, and at other events.

As a consultant for LuLaRoe, Jill has an inventory of over 1,000 pieces of clothing that she brings with her to pop-up boutiques. Anyone can host a pop-up and earn free clothing for themselves when they invite their friends and family over to shop the inventory. Unlike the typical “home party,” there are no speeches, pitches, or ordering from a catalog. Customers get to try on all the clothes and go home with them the same day. LuLaRoe has also allowed consultants to sell via Facebook Groups and on Periscope.

More about LuLaRoe and Jill…
LuLaRoe began just 3.5 years ago by Deanne Stidham. Deanne was a single mother of seven children and was trying to find a way to be at home, be a mom, and provide for her children at the same time. She began sewing maxi skirts for her daughters and then their friends, soon hosting parties for friends and selling hundreds of skirts at a time.

Since then, Deanne has developed her business to give other women (and even some men) the opportunity to sell her clothing in the same manner — to get out and make connections, meet other women, and share with them the love of LuLaRoe. Despite its short past, LuLaRoe is currently the fastest growing company in the United States. Lularoe is an ethical, environmentally conscious clothing company that until recently produced everything in its factory and warehouse in California. Due to high demand, LuLaRoe is now manufacturing in China, Mexico, and Guatamala, to name a few places, but follows strict guidelines for ethical working conditions and fair wages.
Jill has been a stay-at-home mom for the last five years, raising her girls Emerson (5) and Marigold (3), and she’s been married to her husband for 14 years. They live in College Park, MD, in a little bungalow, trying to make it all work like other families aiming for work/life balance. LuLaRoe allows her to work on her own time, so she can be available to her girls when they need her, yet cultivate a career and contribute to the financial well-being of their family. She would love for you to join her Facebook Group or arrange a pop-up boutique event of your own!

Disclosure: I received several LuLaRoe items complimentary of Jill O’Hanlon, however, all opinions expressed here are entirely my own, and I only promote products and services that I genuinely believe in and think will appeal to KFDC readers.

Get Ready for Back to School with Tea Collection and a Great Sweepstakes!

Back to School Sweepstakes at Tea Collection!

We’re hitting that point in summer when the countdown to the new school year is on, and it’s time to get our children ready to go back to the classroom. This includes stocking up on new clothes, because if your kids are anything like mine, they grew multiple inches over the break (all that sunshine!). Plus, it’s nice to start off the year with some fresh duds.

Tea Collection is one of my very favorite brands when it comes to purchasing children’s clothes (disclosure: they are also a KidFriendly DC affiliate). I love that they’re inspired by destinations around the globe — it’s apparel made for “little citizens of the world.” Unique patterns and colorful designs are meant to reflect both the culture and spirit of international places and people. And the comfortable styles mix and match well, making it easy and fun for kids to dress themselves. (They also have really good sales!)

Tea Collection takes the global inspiration beyond their clothing, making giving back a part of their mission. They do this through a partnership with The Global Fund for Children, giving proceeds from special sales to the organization and spotlighting programs that help children around the world.

The latest line from Tea Collection is inspired by Argentina and Bolivia. Designs exude the energy and color of La Paz, from the vibrant, striped blankets and embroidered skirts found in the outdoor mercados to the modern, sporty-edge spirit of the city. They are not only beautiful and bright, they also pay tribute to the indigenous pride of La Paz.
