Clothing Racks 3, My Back 0

You’ve heard the expression, “take one for the team”?

Well, today I was at Wal-Mart, picking up clothing racks (literally, I was PICKING up clothing racks) and I guess I lifted with my back and not my knees and OOPs.  It’s not that bad, but I did decide to skip the gym since my back and my wrists were hurting.  Did I mention I carried three racks (in boxes) all the way through Wal-Mart?

I ordered a GREAT printer yesterday night and I can’t wait to hook it up and get everything set up.

If you didn’t know, LaMaLu Boutique has a facebook page now! I’ll be posting some items that I’m really excited about so check it out.

What I am most excited about, is that I placed my FIRST order tonight.  I ordered a bunch of cute necklaces, earrings and bracelets and I cannot wait to show y’all.  Let me tell you though, picking out only a few things instead of everything is REALLY hard.

I’ll be back sometime soon for another update.  We’re getting closer to launch and I am so excited!

LaMaLu Progress – a Website and a Bank Account

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.
