New at La Muse - Lolablue

About six weeks ago a woman came into my store, her name is Deidre.  She is a certified Washington DC tour operator who, until recently, lived in Florida.  Most of her business came from Florida and she would travel from there to here with each tour of students that she was leading.  She decided to move to the area since it would open up a lot more avenues of business for her.  Just last week she started as a tour director of our infamous Ghost Tours here in Old Town. 

As we chatted she mentioned a friend of hers named Jamie.  Born out of a realization of the amount of toxins used in commercial candles she set out on a journey to create an organic formula of high-quality soy and botanical candles.  Lolablue started out as a candle company and now offers natural sugar scrubs and hand-crafted soaps as well.

Deidre told me that Jaime was interested in expanding her reach beyond the Florida market and asked me if I'd be interested in sampling Jaime's products.  Since I have so many customers that have asked me to carry candles I readily agreed.

A few weeks later Deidre came in with some of Jaime's samples.  OMG!  Is all I can say.  From the yummy vanilla in the Angel Kiss candle to the earthy scent of her Amber Sandlewood soap - I was in heaven.  The final straw was when Deidre gave me a sample of Lolablue's Lavender/Vanilla SkyClad sugar scrub to take home.  Not only did the body scrub feel fantastic but the combination of the two scents is amazing - and it lingered all day long.

La Muse received its first shipment of Lolablue last week and we know it will fast become a favorite of our customers.  Lolablue is now available online at  Take an additional 10% through May 31st with coupon code 'may10.'  If you are not completely satisfied feel free to return it for a full refund - I am confident you will love it just as much as I do!
