Happy New Year!

This holiday season has been full of fun at Lulu's, so much so that half of the shelves are empty and people are beginning to ask if we're closing. Fortunately for all of you, I'm going on a New York City shopping spree very soon to fill every last shelf to the top! Until then, we've put lots of very cool merchandise on sale.
  • All shoes are 50% off.
  • All hair accessories are 20% off.
  • Fall and Winter clothing is 25% off.
There isn't much new merchandise to report but there is an adorable new line of cards from Cheezburger on the card wall. Below is an example.

We wish you a fun-filled 2011!

Winter Garden, Plaid, and Just Plain Ugly!

Thank you for the amazing turnout at Juli Mills night! We had a wonderful time and hope you did as well. Lulu has a few fun new things in-store to share.

Winter Hobo wallets have arrived!!! We have the Lauren wallet in the new pattern Winter Garden. It's available in the styles of the Mavis and the Millie as well.

Above is Hobo's new Plaid. It is shown on the adorable Libby! A brushed-metal chain strap and rounded clasp closure lend retro-inspired style to an embossed-leather crossbody bag with a glossy finish.

The plaid is available in the Millie (as shown above), the Lauren, and the Mavis.

We have TWO new members to our Ugly Doll family!

Nandy Bear is so sure of himself! Just look at him! Ok, no wait. Full of himself? Either way, Nandy Bear knows who he is and who he isn’t. He isn’t on his way to do some hard work, but he is on his way to ask you to do him a huge favor. It may involve a big hug, lots of love, and maybe some back up while watching a scary movie. Nandy Bear is quite the motivational speaker, too. Come on! Buy that snacky pie for me! You can do it! Yes you can! Oh no you didn’t.

Why does everybody think it’s OK to bother poor old Cozymonster with their troubles and crazy questions about the meaning of life? That’s what Cozy Monster would like to know. Is there an “I was born to answer all your questions” sign on his forehead? Does he even have a forehead? Cozy Monster would love to have some answers himself! Who invented quizzes?! Who came up with taxes?! Why is it that the better the taste, the worse for you it is?!

The Lulu Low-Down!

How many Lulu fans out there remember making potholders when you were little? Lulu made these all the time! (She’s showing her age now.) And she found that little metal loom for the store! So Let your children experience the classic Metal Pot holder Loom you grew up with. Includes 150 loops and detailed instructions. A great activity for improving fine motor skills. 5 years and upGood things come in mini packages. Measuring just 3.5" x 2" x 2" the Minimergency Survival Kit is more compact than a cupcake. From a teeny-tiny hairspray to single-use dental floss, the survival gurus at Ms. & Mrs. have miniaturized 16 emergency essentials that girls need at their fingertips. Stash this low-cost life-saver in an evening clutch, glove compartment, or carry-on bag. Elle’s must-have!
It’s simple: follow the illustrated prompts and read the English words out loud, and soon you’ll be speaking Spanish, Japanese, or Chinese. This handy, easy-to-read language guide, Slanguage, is easy to carry and gives the basic phrases you need while traveling, asking directions, or ordering food at a restaurant. It also includes phrases for medical or legal emergencies, as well as terminology for hotels, airports, and so on. But most of all, it’s just plain fun!

You may not know Tyvek by name, but if you’ve ever tried to tear open an express mail envelope or remove those “do not remove” tags from your bedding, you’ve discovered just how strong and tear resistant Tyvek is. Mighty Wallets are ingeniously constructed from a single piece of Tyvek folded in a simple pattern, eliminating the need for seams or stitching, which further strengthens the wallet and allows it to expand and grow as it is filled. The smooth material also creates the perfect moisture-resistant surface to protect your valuables from wear and tear. The wallet is environmentally friendly and can actually be recycled.

There are lots of new things coming in at Lulu's and we'll keep you updated, but the best is to come downtown and see for yourself!!!

Great style is in the bag! And in hand...

You know the reusable bags you always forget in your car? Lulu sure does! Well here's your answer. These chic fabric shopping bags fold up small enough to fit into your handbag or pocket—about the size of a candy bar after Lulu's taken a healthy bite. For the environmentally conscious shopper...they're made of durable, waterproof, lightweight polyester, built for toughness and extra strength. Easy to clean if something spills inside. Ideal for sweaty workout clothes. Or tuck your good leather handbag inside if you're caught in an unexpected downpour. Traveling this fall? Bring this along for carrying your loot!

We sell the bag. Not the lady or the shoes. $9.95Come discover Lollia's shea butter handcreme in an intoxicating new scent— "In Love." Described as "a modern interpretation of a sheer romantic floral with delicate infusions of Apple Blossom kissed sweetly by Jasmine, floating upon the breath of the truest Living Rose." Mister Lulu just calls it "Hubba hubba!" Like all of Lollia's deliciously rich handcremes, this contains fast-absorbing macadamia nut & avocado oils to comfort & soothe skin. (When Lulu read these key ingredients, she was tempted to serve a bowl at her last dinner party with some Ritz crackers.) $26.50

We also carry the perfume, bubble bath, and miniatures of the handcreme and perfume for the purse! It's only August but it's not too soon to start thinking of the holidays. These miniatures fly off our shelves - why not stock up now? Perfect for teacher/babysitter/dog-walker gifts and wonderful stocking stuffers.
