- Happy New Year -
It is SO CRAZY to think that we are in 2020 already! Where did the past year go? We had so many fun events, collabs, and partnerships in 2019 that we thought we would take a moment to look back on all the fun that was 2019!
2019: Year In Review
We participated in Giving Hearts Day in February by turning RED and supporting charities local to us! Leela matched all donations/discounts to be given right back into our local communities. At Leela, we LIVE to GIVE + BELIEVE that we truly are better together in supporting this amazing cause!
Everyone loves their little furry friends, and Leela is no exception! We declared ourselves "Pet Friendly" and welcomed our little furry four legged shoppers in to join in on the fun!
2019 was also a HUGE year for the product in our store! We welcomed in several new brands with open arms and you guys loved them as much as we do! We saw brands emerge like Good American, AGOLDE, + MOTHER denim, Marc Fisher Footwear, B.b.Lila jewelry, and Quay sunglasses - just to name a few! With a style + fit for everyone, these new brands are a MUST SEE when you walk into any Leela location.
We hit a HUGE milestone within our social media pages - 10K followers! We are so incredibly blown away that over 10,000 of you follow Leela & Lavenders style adventure every. single. day! To hit this milestone in 1.5 years time is truly amazing + we couldn't do it without the support of each and every one of you!
We also added to our Leela family - not once, but TWICE! We welcomed Maple Grove, MN in June and Sioux Falls, SD in September! We are so incredibly grateful to have been received in these communities with open arms! A HUGE thank you to all of the amazing Leela teams + everyone for helping launch these two stores! And another HUGE -Thank You- to YOU for supporting these stores and joining in on this exciting style adventure that we are all on!

In addition to our new store openings, we also celebrated some -HUGE- milestones at our other locations! Our Bismarck, ND + Detroit Lakes, MN stores celebrated their 1st Birthdays and our Fargo location celebrated their 2nd! We love when you grab your besties, your gal pals, co-workers, family, + friends of friends to celebrate these special occasions with us all! Sips, snacks, + giveaways were all part of the fun in each location! We can't thank our hard working teams and YOU, our loyal clients, for supporting us along this journey. We couldn't do it without you!
Another fun + exciting part of our 2019 was all of our partnerships and collabs with some pretty awesome bloggers and influencers within our communities! We even featured a few in-store shopping events with a meet and greet opportunity to really engage with some of our favorite influencers to follow!
At Leela we LIVE to give : we believe that giving is always in style + that together we can truly make a difference! We hosted a Shop for a Cause event for Landon's Light + the Solberg Family. A portion of every purchase went directly to the Solberg family in support of Landon & his family during his fight. When you shop at Leela, you WILL make a difference and this cause was proof of a community that came out to support. We can't thank you enough for your generosity during this event!
While this isn't even CLOSE to recapping all of our favorite events and memories of the year, it's a few of our favorites. We love all of the memories and dreams that we create together on this journey + style adventure that we are all on! While we created some pretty amazing memories in 2019, we can't WAIT to see where 2020 takes us!
