Laura meets LuLa

Rappahannock News - - SPERRYVILL­E • WASHINGTON - CHRIS GREEN chris­[email protected]

Laura McNear Morey, born and raised in Rap­pa­han­nock, lives in Sper­ryville with her hus­band Duane and their four beau­ti­ful chil­dren, in­clud­ing a set of ram­bunc­tious triplets. She is a busy woman for sure, and en­joys a full-time job, too, so start­ing up Laura’s LuLaRoe Bou­tique re­cently is . . . well, Won­der Wo­manesque.

The cloth­ing line is lovely, and suited for all shapes, sizes and ages. As you will find on LuLaRoe’s web­site www.lularoe.com, the com­pany ethos is to cel­e­brate com­fort­able, af­ford­able, stylish cloth­ing, as well as to of­fer its con­sul­tants, such as Laura, the in­de­pen­dence to set their own pace and sched­ule.

That be­ing the case, Laura says her hours will be flex­i­ble and mostly on week­ends, and she will post fu­ture events on her Face­book page and the Face­book Rapp­net group page. A smiling Laura will greet you warmly at the en­trance, and the shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence is found in a high- ceilinged, spa­cious room filled with col­or­ful cloth­ing, dress­ing rooms and a kitchen chock full of as­sorted cheeses and crack­ers, cham­pagne and wine.

Women laughed and chat­ted while I was there, friends and strangers alike, talked of fam­i­lies and kids, so­cial events, shopped with glass in hand and pur­chased, and pur­chased ( my­self in­cluded). She calls her shop­ping soirees “open houses” and can also en­ter­tain pop-up bou­tiques, a la Mary Kay or Pam­pered Chef. And Laura is more than happy to come to your home for a pop-up party as well.

“The cool thing is that there is no pre­sen­ta­tion to sit through and no cat­a­logs,” she says. “And I have all the in­ven­tory so you can try things on and then take them home!”

Good luck to you, Laura, in your new ven­ture. I know I’ve al­ready re­ceived nu­mer­ous com­pli­ments on the lovely cloth­ing I pur­chased. Thanks! Laura’s place is at 12213 Lee Hwy. in Sper­ryville; for fu­ture hours check Face­book or email [email protected]­hoo.com.
