Our Big, Huge Announcement (and Giveaway) ...

Friday, April 1, 2011

Thank you to all who entered our giveaway and gave us so many wonderful ideas on how to make our new shop a success! So who's the lucky winner ........ #17 Margie C! Congrats, Margie! We will be in touch shortly.

Even though the giveaway is now closed, we'd love to hear more suggestions. Our goal is to make Lola Pink Fabrics fabulous and we could use your help! The comments received so far have been great and are definitely making us think about how we want the shop set up. Keep them coming!!


I cannot believe we are finally able to make our announcement!! It has been a LONG few months for us filled with stress, worry, excitement, fear, hopefulness, you name it .. we've probably felt it. And now the deal is done, papers have been signed, money paid ... oh my ... did we really just do this?? What in the world were we thinking?? I think I might throw up ........ OK ... don't pass out ... still have the announcement to make .......

LOLA PINK IS GOING BRICK AND MORTAR!!

We could not be more excited to finally, FINALLY be able to say those words out loud for the whole world to hear or read as the case may be. For all the Lafayette, LA locals, we will be setting up shop in the On The Boulevard shopping center with the likes of Brother's, Caroline & Company, and Jason's Deli. Here ... 


Yeah, definitely needs a bit (or lot) of work! LOL We will be in there busting our butts for the next few weeks and hope to open the doors somewhere around the first of May. Yay!!

So what exactly does this mean for our non-local friends? In a word ... MORE ... more fabric, more patterns, more bundles, more kits, more blog posts (OK, don't laugh ... I know the blog has been severely lacking in the last few months but please refer back to paragraph 1), more projects, more features, all-in-all just more of us. And hopefully we won't scare y'all away.

To get the party started, we've decided to have a little giveaway. Based on the overwhelmingly great response to the new Sugar & Spice collection by The Quilted Fish, we are giving away a fat quarter bundle in your choice of colorways ... either the pink/green, blue, or red ... 7 fat quarters in all. We just love this collection!


To enter our Sugar & Spice giveaway, just comment below and we'd love if you'd share a bit of advice or tell us what you love most about your local fabric shop. A winner will be chosen Tuesday, April 5th around 8pm. (One entry per person please.)

So that's it ... our big announcement.Whew! Thank you to all our kind friends who offered up support during the trying and often comical process that led us to this point. We will be working hard to make our Lola Pink shop a place that people love and hope you all can come visit us!

Much love and big thanks!
