I’ve been pretty busy around here getting things set up for a *fingers crossed* June 1st launch.
Last week, I got completed a huge accomplishment and opened a bank account for LaMaLu – that way I can differentiate my money from the boutiques. I ended up going with Bank of America because I am very familiar with them and I’m so glad that I did! They were so helpful and reassuring (and they seemed to have everything together to help small businesses like mine) – multiple employees congratulated me when I used my card for the first time – I guess my excitement was obvious.
So with the bank account out of the way, I was able to finally deposit my loan checks and get the ball rolling with everything else that I need. Thanks to an AMAZING Groupon deal, I was able to order stickers and notepads from VistaPrint for LaMaLu Boutique for a great price. I have to say though, 48HourPrint has WAY better prices overall though. I’ll make sure to show you the stickers when they come – the notepads I’m keeping for a surprise for my future shoppers.
What I am MOST excited about, is the website. That’s right! I started putting the website together. I decided to go with Shopify because based upon my research they were the most detailed and easy to use eCommerce platform that I found. So far, Shopify has been super easy to use but I haven’t had a chance to add products yet – I’m ordering some clothes this weekend and believe me – I’m REALLY excited.
For now though, I will show you a picture of the website – it’s still under construction though so nothing is final yet.
Let me know what you think – I can’t wait to launch.
