More riveting news from the mind of LULA...
Could you shop more gently?
Not rip through the rack - or push on it really hard to one end. Or tug severly at your (my) blouse or dress when you are putting it on. Also, not force a zipper to zip if it's too difficult.
It is bad for the clothing and seemingly- unnecessary.
If you have feelings of agression perhaps you could focus them towards some sort of fitness activity. Kickboxing or rock climbing are always exhaustive options. Even heavy drinking could quell whatever demons that haunt you. The clothing has never meant to hurt you so please don't hurt them.
I really need you to do this for me.
Please find another option instead of ripping mercilessly thru a vintage store in a tantrum of movement.
(This may be applicable to all shopping including grocery shopping but it really it isn't my place to say.)
It's not very polite.
I wish I didn't need to ask but it turns out that I do need to ask.
Hi- what's in for spring? I think it's a little casua this timel. A little softer. A little fearless, too. Straw, strips, polk-a-dots, long, light, pale, laces, crochets, tatting- you catch my drift.
So since LULA is all new it's very easy now for me to constantly restock. I've always been big on the constant refilling but now its much easier.
PROM PROM PROM
Alright- here it is. You need it. I know.
I know your tired- it's been a very long winter. Spring came on wednesday by name alone and that broke you too. But I'm here to say- like death- spring is an inevitability. It will come. Soon you will not even recall feeling like this. I promise. You'll be sipping on an iced drink and asking me when my cardigans will be in...
HOWEVER- for now- If you need something to look forward to then, please come to the party. It's on Thursday March 28th at Lula from 6-9pm. Get a little gussied up and stop by. I'll have a photographer here to document you in all of your glory.
Spring will come.
Afterall- it's already spring at Lula.
At least- in your mind.
Down with cocoa! Down with woolens! (Please imagine pastel protest signs.)
Yes- let s go forward now. Into spring.
So LULA is busy because of the season and the renovation. This means a high stock rotation.
I'm working on getting my mens' shoes and an additional mens' rack into LULA this week.
However- because of the high turnover - I put in quite a few new dresses today. I'll add more on thursday.
And yes- the prom dresses have entered the building…
(Oh yeah- The Party- March 28th- don't forget 6-9. wear your finest LULA.)
Okay- the clothes are in, the telephone line is re-attached and I've washed my face. So you can all come back now to visit our lovely LULA. She is totally fit and healthier than ever. It wasn't just a botox sort of thing- it was a complete fitness camp whereas she made major life style changes that should bode we'll for her next 20 years.
So we have spring wear in and I'll start with some prom dresses this week too. I still have a lot to do in terms of getting an additional mens rack in but I am working on that as my top priority.
I am now able to restock very easily very single day!
Last item of this meeting- we are having a party on the 28th of March -thursday 6-9 to our Grand Re-opening.
Snacks, drinks and minute dance parties.
Kae and Syreeta from Brow Chic are going to do Lipstick Matching for Spring- they will help you find your perfect shade. They will be available 6-8.
Other events too… Please wear LULA garments as we will be taking photos for our website and Facebook.
(Ummm- if you are planning to shop seriously though- you may want to come before the party because sometimes it's difficult to try too many things on during our parties. )
Okay - I'll write more this week-end.
and it was good…
come and see the brand new LULA.
SO the whole renovation of LULA has gone extremely well. Now we are refilling the store we our spring stock. It should be mostly done by thursday so we will open that day 11-7.
We have some major fixtures to install on thursday and friday. But the dressing rooms will be in and the clothing will be on the racks. So please come shop if you like...
I'm sitting at my house at 5pm on a tuesday drinking the beer of my people- a KOKO brown ( Aloha Series). I highly suggest it. I mean the beer- not being at my house. Anyway-I don't recall the last time that happened. I'm happy and so is my dog. The load out of Lula was successful if not quite awful. But with sleep and triaxcicin-( kinda like ben gay but better)- I'm almost recovered. Many friends helped me for which I'll be forever thankful. So here's some pics of the last couple days.
It's gong to be great - they started running the new electrical today.
we are closed for the renovation.
I'll post some photos of lula in process.
This is it so please come on by-
I put in more lingerie and I did 25 loads of laundry - much of which has been filtered into the store. Also - in the process of cleaning the LULA basement - I've found many cute things that I put out. On saturday- I'll have some wine and snacks for the last couple hours of the shift -4-6 and the same goes for Valentines day (4-7) -
please come by and toast to the last moments of this version of LULA and toast to things to come.
