If you’re reading this page its probably because you have a few questions. You’re probably wondering who are the ladies behind Lavender & Lace Boutique? How did you get started? What are your goals and dreams?! What’s next? What is it like to work with your best friend? Those are all amazing questions and we are happy to answer them.
Lavender & Lace Boutique was started by us! We are Carrie & Kristine – two best friends and now business partners. Just like all best friends we spend a lot of our time together and miss each other terribly when we are apart. We have been besties for over 25 years and counting.
Carrie is a CPA with tons of business knowledge and has always dreamed of owning her own business. She has been married for over 10 years and has the cutest almost 5 year old that loves to sing and dance. They love to travel as a family and Maui is one of their favourite family vacation spots.
Kristine has retail experience and is crafty in her quirky ways. She is married and has a 3 year old girl, who is too much fun to handle. They also love to travel and you will almost always catch this family in Disneyland.
Working together is the best experience we could ask for. It’s an incredible rollercoaster that we wouldn’t trade for the world. If we aren’t together at work, we are most likely on the phone. Yes, actual phone calls, we are 80’s babies after all. We are always and forever besties first, business partners second, and we’re actually even neighbours. We are team - Batman and Robin, PB&J, we would even say we are a little like Monica and Rachel. We have a mutual love for boybands, Disney Princesses, and of course we have both seen every episode of Friends 800 times. Our friendship is weird, silly and we wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Lavender & Lace Boutique was an idea brewed up in between laughing, dreaming out loud and too much wine. Yes - wine, because no great idea ever started with a salad. Once we decided on it we hit the ground running and started the boutique in Carrie’s basement in 2015. Three years later we outgrew Carrie's two basement bedrooms, the basement living space, and the front entrance. We knew it was time to take the leap and move in to our first warehouse. So here we are, living this amazing dream which is now a reality. It blows our minds every. single. day. When we had this little dream we never imagined it would become what it is today.
But enough about us! We want to leave with a little thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. You know we do a little happy dance every time we see your name pop up in our orders. Thank you for being a part of this little family we call our LLB Fam. YOU supporting us is what makes all of this possible. We have SO many exciting things planned for the future and can’t wait for you to come along with us.
