Have you heard? This weekend we're turning Lela Boutique into Tiki heaven featuring the artistic stylings of Dave Hansen! Dave is celebrating 15 years of perfecting his Tiki artistry and we're so happy to host him. In honor of this event, we put together a few outfits that will be more than suitable for your local luau. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page or in the comments below!
From 9-5 to Happy Hour: The Blush Dress
In the store we call this the Magic Dress - it clings where it should cling and hides the things you want to hide! We get it periodically in many colors but when it came in pink I knew I had to feature it on the blog. I paired it with this delightful silk wrap and a pendant necklace from La Vie Parisienne. Ditch the wrap and go for drinks after work!
Formal With Fun Details: The Pleated Blush Top
This flowing, pleated top looks right at home tucked in - though you could also pair it untucked with a pair of tailored black slacks and a statement necklace, too.
Picnic Perfect Tunic Top
Everything'll be coming up roses when you don this button-down top from Tulip. Delightful details of this particular paring include a contrast print in the collar and back pleat of the shirt and a lace back on the white denim jacket.
Something Subtler: Blush Accessories
Do you prefer your color as an accent rather than the main focus? Well, we've got plenty of pretty pink accessories to choose from if that's the case.
So? Do we have you thinking pink? Let us know down below or on our Facebook page - we love to hear from you!
You know what's right around the corner... Mother's Day! A day to honor all of the amazing women who have raised and shaped us. Maybe you forgot it was so soon... maybe you haven't found the right gift. Don't worry - Lela's got you covered. And don't forget that we offer gift receipts - so even if she's not a fan, she can always come and shop for herself. Look below for our favorite picks!
Lulu's Petals is a De Pere, WI-based jeweler named Staci Schemm who re-purposes vintage jewelry into new and totally unique pieces. She also has an Etsy and a Facebook page if you'd like to see more of her work!
Diana Acuesta Designs
Diana Acuesta is a Portland, OR-based designer who has a more of a minimal design aesthetic. She employs delicate stones and beaten metal to create a simple but unique style that will appeal to many different people.
Erstwilder is a Melbourne, AU brand started by artist Louisa Camille whose layered resin pieces brighten up even the drabbest of days. Each collection is a limited run and each piece features a unique backstory on the inside of the box.
Make this Mother's Day a celebration of all women - moms, aunts, grandmas, women-owned businesses and women artists.
Pssst - we're having a Customer Appreciation Night this Thursday, May 11th during which the entire store will be 25% off! It would be a great time to pick up your gifts for mom at a discounted price. RSVP on Facebook!
