Sponsor Spotlight: Lily & Bo

Our first Sponsor Spotlight features the couture boutique Lily & Bo. We thank them for being our first In Bloom blog sponsor. Keep reading to find out more about this fun shop, and enter to win a headband!

Lily & Bo features unique, stylish and affordable creations for every occasion, and are happy to make a custom order to fit your needs.

Owner Carrie started knitting at a young age. "I learned to knit from my little grama Kate when I was 8 years old. As any normal 8 year old, I grew bored and tossed it to the side convinced I will never be able to complete the scarf I started to make for my dad. 20+ years later, I had the biggest urge to complete that scarf and I did! I gave it to my dad 2 years ago for Christmas!"

"Since then, I have experimented in making all sorts of different knitted goods and then went outside of knitting and started creating tutus, headbands & hair clips."

I asked Carrie about the hardest part of having your own business, and like many others, she replied,
"Getting my name out there and drawing people to my shop. There are so many talented people and such a wide variety of items! The fan base I have right now is awesome and the support is endless."

Carrie's favorite things including reading, she admits to reading & knitting at the same time-- now that is talent! "My favorite color is pink, I am not a fan of winter, I love dogs and in fact, any animal! I am known to drive crazy and slam on my brakes for squirrels. My favorite band is Il Volvo and I am Italian so any pasta dish will do! I love spending time with my kids, Ashley (16) and Blake (13) and my boyfriend, Luke."

"The name of my shop, Lily & Bo, actually comes from my two black labs! Lily is 4 and Bo 5. They sit across the room and stare at me while I craft all the time. It only seemed right to name my shop after them!"
