Impossibly Possible…
Over the past year, versions of this quote have played in my head, day and night, over and over and over again. At present, the heart continues to win. 
I’ve been amazed by the genuine joy and support I have received from so many that I’m compelled to dedicate my forthcoming posts to showcase some of my favorite partners-in-crime. These creatives, experts, fashionistas, guides, cheerleaders, and soulsayers have literally and figuratively held my hand, talked me off of the ledge, and just basically have my back when it comes to supporting this crazy dream called Alchemy Detroit.  

 

Lola Ryan…Your Home for Pure Fashion.

(Rachel Lukasik Kus, owner of Lola Ryan, rocks out The Sophia blazer)

There’s always a first and I’d like you to meet mine…Rachel is the fabulous owner of Lola Ryan, a well-curated boutique in downtown Plymouth. Working alongside Rachel is her mom, Becky, who helps keep the boutique moving and is extremely well-versed on every detail of the store. Both women have a great eye and are very passionate about the brands that hang in the store!!

Connecting the Dots…

I’m all about being authentic so when you find another in your midst, you can take a sigh of relief in knowing you share a code of transparency and forthrightness that can be difficult to find. And one such aha moment was walking into Lola Ryan in November to be told by Becky that one of my scarves was picked up by HOUR Detroit magazine for their Holiday Giving Guide. The excitement was palpable and it was my introduction to a win-win retail partnership. Over the months, there have been a few hiccups along the way with production and delivery times and general things that happen outside of ones control. It was during those moments, I recognized how fortunate I was to discover that because of Rachel, Alchemy Detroit had its first shot at retail and had found a new home at Lola Ryan. 

Karma is a beautiful thing so check out Lola Ryan in downtown Plymouth!

Best,
