Casual Day in the Capitol (Sponsored by LuLaRoe Keisha Jarrett, Independent Fashion Consultant)

While this post was sponsored by a consultant of LuLaRoe, all opinions are my own. 

Hi friends, I hope you're all doing well!! Recently I was contacted by Keisha Jarrett, a consultant for the company LuLaRoe, about potentially doing blog post on the company. Of course I was thrilled and obliged! Here's a little about LuLaRoe and Keisha:

"LuLaRoe was established in May 2013 by owner, DeAnne Stidham, who has been in the retail business for over 20 years.  Named after granddaughters, LUcy, LoLA, and MonROE, LuLaRoe was created to help empower women while making money to support their families.   Watch DeAnne talk about this vision of hers at:

I found LULAROE shortly after moving to Alabama from a 6-year assignment in Alaska.  I did not own much of anything that didn’t involve jeans, sweaters and boots. I was invited to an online “Maxi Skirt” party by a consultant in NY, Lisa Jones.  I ordered 3 maxi skirts and instantly fell in love.  I attempted to find a local consultant so I can expand my wardrobe for warmer weather and didn’t find a single one in Alabama or Georgia, Florida, Mississippi...  In fact, the only consultant east of the Mississippi River was Lisa, the one who I bought the 3 skirts from.  I called and chatted with her to inquire about what exactly was LULAROE…?  I have never wanted to sell anything – EVER.  Once I found out this was a brand new company with potential, I contacted the home office in California and submitted a consultant application. 

The concept behind a LULAROE home party, named “pop-up boutiques”, is simple.  The consultant brings her inventory and supplies (racks, bins, etc) and sets up a small boutique-style party where guests can try any and everything on and take their purchases home with them on the spot.  LULAROE does not carry catalogs because their patterns are unique and ever changing!  Generally, there are only 5,000 units created in one print – sold out to over 20,000 consultants – you can see where a favorite pattern becomes unique.  Customers are encouraged to snag up their favorite patterns before they are gone and/or hard to find. 

The majority of our styles are for women with styles for men and girls.  We have dresses, skirts, tops, tunics, leggings and more! Consultants have the freedom to choose the styles they’d like to carry within their inventory so it’s very common for woman to have more than one “go-to consultant” for variety! 

While in-home pop-up boutiques is my fun way to share the clothing, social media has brought selling LULAROE to another level.  Many consultants have Facebook groups from where they sell their inventory.  Another recent popular social media selling feature was the creation of “multi-consultant sales”.  This is where a group of 30 consultants (or so) come together and upload their items into a huge sale.  Customers can shop from over thousands of items.

Since I am still an active duty Soldier, I try to balance a combination of in-home and online sales.  I look forward toward military retirement when I can focus on my business full-time!"

As an avid online shopper, I love the convenience of being able to shop right from Facebook. The clothes I was sent are not only comfortable, but versatile as well. I love that I can dress them up or dress them all while still being comfortable. They offer a variety of clothing items in various prints, some being plain and some being super fun. I was sent the Cassie skirt, Amelia dress, the Classic T, and I already owned the Tween leggings.

I am absolutely in love with everything I was sent, so a huge thank you goes out to Keisha Jarrett. I recommend to everyone to check out Keisha's LuLaRoe Facebook page and be sure to join the group!
