The Great LuLa Road Trip

I want to introduce you to an amazing LuLaRoe consultant.  I met her through my Traveling Angels and she helped me coin the title “the Angel Thirty One” lady.  When I met Dawn at a recent vendor event, she shared with me her summer goal of “The Great LuLa Road Trip” and she helped me to brainstorm some ideas I am going to try as well.

Hi lula loving ladies! My name is Dawn Valentine and I’ve been a consultant since October alongside my boyfriend Greg. I first heard about LuLaRoe when my sister in law invited me to an online party. I bought some clothes out of obligation, which ended up not even fitting, and after putting on my leggings which were falling off of me I was smitten! Yes! With leggings that were too big, I was in love. I had to figure out what all this LuLa craze was! I had seen an advertisement for this beautiful Perfect T- black background with dandelion flowers. This quickly became my obsession and my ultimate unicorn. 🦄 It boggled my mind that the consultant didn’t have THAT actual shirt. What do you mean I can’t order it? Do you only have this shirt in this size? I was learning the allure of LuLaRoe. The limited prints and patterns and the HUNT was real. So I joined a bazillion groups and found so much more than clothes. I found a culture. Fun loving girls working hard to support their family. I thought to myself, “I can do this.” I loved it all- the games, the giveaways, mystery hostess. Every page always had something unique. Something exciting I wanted to be a part of. And that’s when I said to Greg, I want to do this! I can do this! And so we did it! And now here we are a part of the fun and the culture of LuLaRoe about to embark on a series of Pop Up parties from NJ to Florida, we are taking our love for LuLa on the road! You can follow our trip by subscribing to our YouTube channel LuLaRoe DMV. We will be vlogging our whole experience! Everything! From the moment we wake up, to each and every party to driving down the entire cost and back! It’s going to be amazing and we’d love to have you with us. And just for subscribing to our YouTube Channel, you will be entered to win a LuLaRoe wardrobe giveaway! Want to increase your chances?! Anyone who books a party with us this summer will get 5 entries! If you can’t have an in home, we also do online parties! Or maybe you know a friend who wants to have a party? We’ll give you two entries for that too! Help us share our love for LuLa! We have some huge dreams of being able to provide for ourselves with LuLaRoe and you all help us reach those dreams so thank you! Looking forward to seeing you on the LuLa Roe’d!!!!

Dawn’s goal was 10 parties on this road trip and she has booked 8.  She set a goal and went for it. Join her on Facebook and YouTube to be part of the fun.

Think about how you can take your business on the road.  Going on vacation? I know we all need them BUT why not have some fun meeting some new people along the way.  Staying at a hotel, have a trunk party or ask the hotel if you can use some space to share your products with guests.  Nothing salesy or pushy, just some fun.

Have friends or family along the route?  I mean we all have Facebook friends far and wide, right?  Why not offer them a home party or a theme party or a trunk party?  When was the last time a Facebook friend said they wished they lived closer to have a party?  I hear it ALOT!  Now is the time to take advantage of the situation.  How about a party on the go at a local restaurant in their area?  Think about the friends you will make the potential new customers.

Dawn and Greg are driving to Florida for vacation.  They are partying all the way down and back.  Not only with Dawn grow her customer base BUT she can also write off her trip as a business expense.  Yes, almost all of her vacation will be tax deductible.

I’m so excited to see how this turns out for them.  I’m thinking about my next road trip and how I can party along the way.  Headed to Atlanta in route to Florida for the Leadership Incentive Trip, maybe I can schedule a party or two along the way.

Got a unique idea on how to market your business?  Share it with us… Together We Achieve More so let’s help each other out.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

LuLa Roe


Have you heard about pop-up parties and wondered what they are?  Have you heard about these soft AMAZING leggings but can’t seem to find them in the store?  Have you been to a vendor event where there are racks and racks of clothes and you think – “this is crazy”?  Welcome to the world of LuLa Roe.


I am a little hippy so I tend to stay away from leggings BUT when I needed a dress for hubby’s work party, I called Stacey and asked for her help.  I was skeptical.  The fabrics all seemed to be soft and clingy.  Not exactly something that this “hippy” mommy would see herself in.


I stopped by Susi’s Kloset (actually Stacey’s house) and she began pulling clothes off of the rack that she thought I would like.  Yup, I fought her every step of the way.  I had a reason why just about everything she pulled off the rack wouldn’t work.  I was desperate and wanted something that would WOW my honey.


So, she picked this gray dress (the Nicole) and I tried it on.  I liked it BUT I wanted to know what my honey thought.  So, I sent a text picture to Belinda (my fashion critic) and my honey.  Well, within seconds of honey getting the picture he said “WOW! Buy it”.  I was shocked because usually I get “it looks nice” or “if you like it”.  So, I bought it.


Now, I have gone back and bought leggings with an Azure skirt that I can wear as a shirt AND a maxi.  It could become addicting BUT they are so practical.  Easy to care for.  Easy to pack when traveling.  The maxi will make its way to National Conference in July as well as the leggings.  They make me feel pretty which is the whole reason that Stacey LOVES her business.

Want to see what this is all about?  Check out Susi’s Kloset on Facebook.  The next time you see a “pop-up” party, be sure to at least check it out so you can see how soft and wonderful the clothes are.

Have  a ThirtyOne-derful day!
