A year ago, five gigantic boxes of LuLaRoe clothing magically appeared on my porch courtesy of the UPS man and my life was forever changed. At the time, I didn't really understand completely what I was getting into, I was just looking for a way to make some additional income and make people happy. I've done both and been pretty pleased but after last week's announcement, I am stoked.
Here's why the LuLaRoe Collection for Disney is so exciting.
In case you missed it, LuLaRoe announced last week that they were forming a two-year partnership with Disney at a leadership event at Disneyland. Now, other direct sales companies like Jamberry, have partnered with Disney before so it's not a totally new concept. So what's the big deal? I give you one word: Patrick.
If you aren't familiar with LuLaRoe, the company is all about comfortable clothing in limited edition prints. People go absolutely nuts hunting their unicorn (the pattern they can't live without) and I have to confess, I've done the same thing. I needed Disney roses like nobody's business. Why are the patterns so amazing? LuLaRoe's head designer, Patrick, has a team that creates them around the clock. They make 5,000 pieces across the whole line and the POOF, the pattern disappears.
Over 100 designers have been working on the Disney project. The clothes at the sneak peek event and in the introductory video look nothing like the licensed apparel that you currently see in stores. They have that unique LuLaRoe look that everyone loves and it appears that the line will be more than just Mickey and Minnie leggings. So exciting.
When will the LuLaRoe collection for Disney be available? The company hasn't given a release date yet or any particulars but you can bet that you'll be seeing a lot of the apparel at a pop-up near you this summer. I'm excited and can't wait to share the magic. Want to be in the know? Join my group here.
