ContestsMeet the Golden Ticket Winner for 2012!

Our newest holiday tradition here at LuLu*s  is our beloved Golden Ticket giveaway!

2012 marks the second year in which we created a Golden Ticket worth an $1000 shopping spree and packed it up into one random order during December. We are so excited to present the winner of this year’s ticket: Samantha Munkelwitz!

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, Samantha?

I am 19 and in my second year of college at Northern Arizona University, and am an active member of Alpha Omicron Pi. I am a marketing major and want to eventually become a fashion buyer! I am also the Recruitment Chair in my sorority and so far I am in love with it! I have two younger brothers that live in Phoenix (my hometown) and have a dog named Roxy that I am absolutely obsessed with!

What was your reaction when you found the Golden Ticket in your package?

For Christmas, I asked my dad for a pair of boots from LuLu*s. When I opened them up on Christmas Day, there was the Golden Ticket. I kind of stared at it for a minute, not knowing exactly what it was since I had no idea of the contest. When I asked my dad, “Is this for real?” he replied and said he wasn’t exactly sure but LuLu*s had already contacted him. Two days later I received a call from a representative, like it said I would on the ticket! From there its been a shock that I actually won!

What items on are you thinking about ordering with your winnings?

As for items that I have an eye on, that would most definitely be shoes since LuLu*s has the most AMAZING shoes! I love dresses too, so much that I’ve already bought two!

Thanks Samantha and enjoy your Shopping Spree!!

ArtFiercely Feminine: Meet Artist Zso

If living in New York and working as a designer/artist has ever been your dream, then meet the woman who’s living the dream; Sara Blake, otherwise known as the artist Zso. With a fierce sense of femininity, and line-work that’s off the flipping charts, Zso’s content ranges from abstract color fields broken by lightning bolts of line, to inky portraiture, and typography slicker than a ’70s hairdo.

FashionModel Pick of the Week: The Holidays and Beyond

Model Picks

It’s always a good day to buy a new dress, but this week we have a special recommendation from our lovely model, Kennedy… and who doesn’t love to hear what a model picks as her favorite?! The Band of Forces Black Dress is obviously cute, but Kennedy loves the box-pleated, full skirt, and the fact that this dress will pass effortlessly from the holidays into spring!

If you’ve ever been stuck on what to give that special someone for the holidays, there’s nothing like a good gift guide to point you in the right direction. Starting at just $10, I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite picks from LuLu*s and beyond!
