BEE News!

Updated: Oct 8, 2021

Welcome to Lilac and Lemon. I'd love to give you a little update about what's BEEn going on for us. If your new, WELCOME! I'm so glad you have found our little piece of heaven and we are hoping it becomes yours also!


HISTORY:

We began this journey in 2017. We had a different "business" name. Umm, so why is business in quotes? Well because we thought we had a business, but we just had a very involved hobby based business. We opened ourselves in a small makers market in a 10 x 10 booth. I say "we" because at that time it was a husband-wife collaboration. We opened with our little crafted signs and fun little items. On a whim we purchased a small sofa table and that is when my love of painting furniture came to be. Quickly we expanded to 350 sq ft in the makers market. I honed my skills as a painter (that will continue until I die or no longer paint) and began to harbor a desire to open my very own store.

In September of 2020, I left my job as an office manager in part to relaunch this business. My other half had to step back due to some medical issues. I took the reigns and relaunched.

In February of 2021 the opportunity presented itself to open my very own store. I worked very hard in the months of March and April to make our flagship store come to life. At the same time we decided to make sure all of our attention was on the store and not our booth, so we closed it down and incorporated most of the inventory into the store.

We opened on April 30, 2021.


Moving Forward:


Now that I've BEEn open for a few months, I am learning at a break-neck speed. I am looking to make the store a place where people can learn and grow and feel welcomed. I have quite a few things up my sleeve coming up. First BIG thing is how Workshops/Classes are going to happen. I am creating a waitlist. Once enough people have signed up for a class, I will send an email sharing when the next classes will be and that you can sign up. If you are unable to at this time, I will move your name down the list and move on to others on the list. If not enough sign up, the class will be delayed until we have enough for a class. Another amazing change is I will begin taking custom work. It will be very limited to begin.

I also plan on taking part in a few craft shows to get out and about. I want to introduce as many people as I can to Lilac and Lemon. I am working really hard on handcrafted items for the shows and the store.

I have so much more in store, so please stop by the store or this page so see what's going on!
