Customer of the Month!

Congratulations Jennifer Wheeler! You’re my customer of the Month!!!

How did you hear about LuLaRoe?

Through Andrea Dunn at her LuLaRoe Pop-Up Party at The Ballroom Project Rocky Hill in December, 2016.

What do you love about LuLaRoe?

The uniqueness of the patterns, the softness of the material, and the many ways that each style can be worn. The items are reasonably priced, too.

What is you favorite style and why?

Tough question – I love them all. Probably the Julia dress, Cassie skirt, and Sarah cardigan – they can be dressed up for a smart, dressy look, but can also be worn for an easy, casual look.

What is your favorite color to wear?

Pink, turquoise, and black/white work well for me.

What would you say to someone who has never heard of LuLaRoe?

I would definitely recommend they go to a Pop-Up party to be able to see and feel the products and different styles and try them on – but be warned: you will become addicted!!

How did you meet Jessica?

At The Ballroom Project Rocky Hill – Jessica and I both take dance lessons there. I discovered she had become a consultant, and I loved the way she looked in her LuLaRoe clothes.

Have you found your unicorn? What is it?

I think so – a light grey and black Julia dress, with an almost all black Sarah cardigan – they look really great together.

Do you prefer chocolate or vanilla cupcakes?

Vanilla.

Pizza or tacos?

Pizza (especially white clam pizza ☺

Coke or Pepsi?

Neither – not a soda drinker.

Tell us a favorite memory or story about yourself.

My favorite memory is probably the day I first arrived in the United States from England by boat. It was very emotional for me to sail into New York Harbor at dawn and see the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline in the distance – something I had previously only seen in pictures or on the telly. I was excited and nervous at the same time – a whole new life was ahead of me. That was 51 yrs. ago!

Busy is an understatement

When taking on LuLaRoe, I knew I would be busy working pop-ups, online sales, marketing, customer service and multiple other activities involved with owning a business.  When signing up for this business, if you are thinking about it, please realize it will consume all of your free time.

But…
I love every second of this.

I love meeting all the new people and interacting them them.  I learn about peoples likes, dislikes, trends, family stories…  I have made new friendships and reconnected with old friends.  Found long lost co-workers from years past who just randomly saw a sponsored ad on Facebook.  LuLaRoe has thrown some amazing curve balls at me, and I seem to roll with her punches.

I love figuring out how business works, and how marketing helps, as well as the ups and downs of trends.  I have learned how to purchase items based on what my customers love, and learned how super-saturation of items can be an issue in my inventory as well as the whole LuLaRoe market.  Having an MS in management, my business has helped me utilize what I have been taught, and give me experience in project management, ethics, finance, and even consulting.

Hopefully I can pencil in time to keep up with my blog now that I have motivation and a handle on my new business.  Time management has been my hardest challenge.  Full time job + LuLaRoe (which turned into full time work) does not leave much time for anything else.  I go to the gym, take dance lessons, and try to keep a social life.  I started to blog about my LuLaRoe experiences, however I failed to keep a time to write.  It is important in life to make an appointment with yourself and not cancel it- make yourself a priority.  This is my new goal for the autumn months.

 

 

Unicorn Craze and Carly Daze

My unicorn got me hooked on LuLaRoe and I didn’t even know it. 
What? How can that be? Yes you heard it right ladies and (few) gentlemen. I had NO idea. I was unaware of what a “unicorn” was… how highly sought out pieces were… and how much people are willing to pay for some pieces!!  

Some of you may be asking “what is a unicorn?” And some of you might be thinking its that majestic one horned horse you see on Lisa Frank trapper keepers from 1989. And no, it’s not that Starbucks drink. It is a pattern of LuLaRoe that is highly sought out by someone- to the point of possible obsession!  

The FIRST online purchase of LuLaRoe I made from my Sponsor, Amanda, was my beloved donut leggings. I love anything DONUTS! I don’t eat them often- but I like to share Neil’s donut’s in Wallingford with a friend on a special occasion maybe once or twice a year. So Donuts bring happy memories. When Amanda brought those donut leggings on screen I had to have them! My heart jumped and my fingers quickly scrambled to type SOLD!! And they were mine! My first pair of leggings. I did not know how soft and how addicting they would be either. Now I have NUMEROUS pairs of leggings! And will never buy another brand. Some may find $25 steep, however they are so comfy, soft, and have a nice thick band so they compliment your waist line.

I had another Unicorn I searched through thousands upon thousands of leggings. I wanted Pineapple leggings. I am still searching for OS pineapple leggings, however my friend Jessica found me Tween leggings and settled for them. Why do I love Pineapples? I was in Newport, RI and had to buy this sweater with pineapples on it…. and ever since pineapples bring fond memories of Newport- my favorite place in the USA. It is such a beautiful place- if you have not been I highly suggest a vacation!

Do I have any current Unicorns? I believe everyone who loves LuLaRoe will gain a new unicorn for every Unicorn they find. It is impossible to stop. I have reasons for every piece I love and reasons for every piece I want. What are your unicorns and why are they so special to you? Are you currently searching for them or have you found them?

Recently, in my first album sale, I had a serious stash of unicorns. I had a few ladies approach me in disbelief with the great first shipment LuLaRoe had sent me. They sent me the gold, a treasure chest. I had beautiful pieces that were on many ISO threads I had come to find out later on.  

When I had posted my merchandise last Wednesday, I woke up Thursday morning with over 16 pending requests to join my VIP group. I was shocked. How did people find out about my group? I struggled weeks before to increase membership. I had this gorgeous Carly in XS and Medium.

A heathered grey with coral orange and teal Native American patterns. I had never thought of having a Unicorn of something other than a pattern that meant something to me… but these ladies unicorns were this dress that I just passed a blind eye in my shipment. Was I missing something?  

The beautiful Carly in question

I asked Crystal, one of the lovely ladies who had purchased the Carly, “do you have any reasons why you wanted and loved that piece?” Crystal replied that she “honestly thought it was different from any I had seen before. And I could picture it as a cute summer dress or in the fall with cute brown boots and a little jacket or sweater.” Yes! Crystal is right- that is such a cute outfit no matter what season. With a light Lindsay or a jean jacket, tied with a hair band or wrapped with a brown braided belt. This dress is fashionable at a music festival this summer or at a coffee shop sipping a pumpkin spice latte.

“I can’t believe I actually got it and it was true to size and fits… …and its funny because I didn’t realize so many people wanted it, but now I’m seeing it ISO everywhere! And no I don’t care what the offer would be I am in loveee!!!” Yes, Crystal we are too! Enjoy that Carly, and gloat you got this Unicorn before someone else did! You look fabulous in it, and we can’t wait to see it through all the seasons! 

As always please join my VIP Group! and search for your very own Unicorn 🦄 💕
