Behind the Brand: Lulu's Petals

Lela Boutique1 Comment

Are you waiting for Wisconsin spring to set in? Need a little pick-me-up? Our suggestion is a new piece of jewelry! And as a local business, we love to promote local artists, like Staci Schemm of Lulu's Petals. Just in case you are relatively new to Lela, we got in touch with Staci so you could learn a little bit more about her.

For the vintage-obsessed thrift-shopper, Lulu's Petals is a must. Staci, the owner and creator, thrifts vintage jewelry and reworks the pieces into unique, distinct creations. It is guaranteed that nobody else will ever have the same jewelry as you. Where else can you get that promise?

Staci, a Lela employee for several years, started creating pieces after digging through her mother-in-law's vintage jewelry collection. While perfecting her craft, she began selling at Lela and remains a fan favorite to this day!

Since I’ve started designing jewelry, my wardrobe has almost become the backdrop, because I want my jewelry to kind of BE the outfit in many cases.
I’m definitely drawn to sparkle and an overall feminine look, but I want also want my designs to be able to be worn with a t-shirt and jeans, because that’s basically my uniform.

There's no doubt that Staci makes some incredible jewelry! Have you picked up anything from her spring collection yet? Let us know!

Best Deals at Our Indoor Sidewalk Sale!

Still thinking about a deal you missed during our Brown Bag sale earlier this month? We've still got lots of deals in store! 

You already know about our classic magic dress in black... now try it in green! No need to reserve it for special occasions either - try it with jean jacket for a casual twist. 

 

Consignment + sale = an incredible value! We paired this black sweater from our sale section with consignment slacks and scarf. No need to pay a premium to look good. 

 

This sheer, mesh-patterned smock looks great over a black dress - but even better over a pop of color like this chartreuse tunic. A large pendant necklace breaks up the pattern of the dress and adds interest. 

Tone on tone is still our favorite trend! This burgundy faux leather jacket is layered over a similarly-colored tunic. The added belt creates a nice silhouette and adds more detail and color without being too much.

You know... you love it. The Samuel Dong bubble dress is on sale too! This golden green is perfect for spring as well as fall. This velvet burnout shawl pairs perfectly with the dress!

See anything that's calling your name? Hurry in and grab it before its gone!
