Hi friends! Some of you may already know Shylah and her story and even stepped inside her beautiful mobile boutique, but i thought it would fun to ask her some questions so you could get to know her even better and understand her heart behind what she does. For those of you who don’t know Shylah she sells a clothing line called Lularoe and travels all over helping women pair outfits with beautiful fabrics and own their own unique style.
BUT i first met Shylah several years ago at my daughters pre school. After getting to know her a bit I found out she had an online clothing business (this was before Lularoe). She had an online resale shop that sold upscale clothing through instagram. I purchased a few things from her and loved them and invited her to be a part of our market last year.
When I invited her she asked me if I had ever heard of lularoe (I hadn’t) and shared with me that she had been tossing around the idea of signing up to sell Lularoe. So, last fall she launched her business and was a vendor at our fall market in October all around that same time.
It has been amazing to watch her journey and celebrate with her successes as she has worked so hard this past year! I hope you enjoy hearing a bit of her story and why she is so passionate about what she does.
- Tell us a bit about “Lularoe” and why it has become so popular
“Lularoe is a unique combination of prints and styles that allow women to express themselves individually. The clothing is so comfortable and flattering and made for women of all shapes and sizes. I also believe that women like supporting other women in their businesses and to build each other up.”
2. What has been the biggest gift you have received this past year through your journey with Lularoe?
“I love that I am able to have a creative outlet for myself personally and then on the other hand still be the primary care giver for my sweet babies. An addition to that I absolutely love getting to help women feel as beautiful as they truly are. Everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin and getting to be a part of helping women achieve that is such a blessing.”
3. Your local debut with your mobile boutique was at our fall market this past September. Tell us why you love traveling with your business and how the mobile boutique has enhanced that?
” I really like being able to actually “meet” people and help them style their pieces in person. The mobile boutique has made the traveling process so much more efficient as far as set up time for shows and events and of course in return allows me to have more time with my special people.”
4. Do you have any encouragement for a mom like yourself who dreams of having a business from home?
“Yes! Go for it! But, start small and make achievable and realistic goals for yourself. If you have an idea and have the tenacity to stick with it even on your worse day (because you will have them) than you should go for it!
It is also important to surround yourself with people that build you up and encourage you. Last, always remember your reason for doing it in the first place and not let your business keep you from what matters the most!
I also want to say thank you to all the ladies that have supported me in my journey and that it means the world to our family. This is more than a job to me, it is my dream gig and i feel so lucky to be able to pursue it!”
Thank you so much Shylah for sharing a bit of why you love what you do and your passion behind it! I hope y’all enjoyed it! You can find her on Facebook to see where her beautiful trailer will be next!
