Pretty little things with a purpose.


Through it all, God is still GOOD!

Choosing to focus on all of the beautiful, positives of our new normal.

At the top of my list, is the extra time I get to see my babies while  they are home from school, in this typically crazy, busy time of year.

At Lola Lenora, we have decided to close the shop for “in-person”  transactions, in addition to classes, for the remainder of March.

 We will continue to offer items for online purchase and will even be offering FREE SHIPPING this month, so stay tuned for some new pretty little things.

You Are Loved


Look at my sweet grandson, Miller. Seriously, the CUTEST little model!!? .

Any time we have new clothing in the shop, people always ask if we have kid sizes, so we are incorporating more and more sweet little pieces for our tinier customers? 

This one in particular is pretty special. It is a soft, white/grey long sleeve bodysuit with hood (and sweet little ears) It is a part of our YOU ARE LOVED collection, which means that not only will you have something precious for your little one, but 50% of your purchase will be donated, in our efforts to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention!

If you have been in the store or have followed our online shop, @lisdunn  designs for the past 4 years, you are probably familiar, but if you’re  new to lola lenora, I’d love to share the story with you.

Over the past several years, we have seen too many suicides and attempted suicides amongst our friends and family. Things became  too much to comprehend, when in 2015, a dear HS friend committed suicide after a battle with depression. She was a pastor's daughter. She loved life. She loved her husband and children. She was always the first to  encourage others. I’ll never forget the question a friend of ours asked  me after this happened... “If she would do this, what is the hope for the rest of us?” I felt mad, sad and confused by it all. I remember reading something just prior, and so I prayed this prayer “God, please don’t let this pain be wasted.”  I didn’t want to just be sad about this happening to people we love. I know that life is so precious and valuable. I had been working on some jewelry pieces at that time that said YOU ARE LOVED and I felt like they  needed to be used for a purpose... so then and there, the YOU ARE LOVED initiative was born!! 

We have clothing, jewelry, prints and home decor with these words and 50% of your purchase of these items will be  donated.  25% will go to @shatteroursilence (check them out! They are  doing amazing things to educate our community!) and the other 25% will be donated to a memorial fund set up for the children of my friend, Larinda.
