Lala's of Webster
Lisa started Lala’s in 2018 because she thought it would be a fun challenge to open a retail gift shop and boutique with no formal retail background whatsoever! She opened the doors on November 16 and has been working hard ever since. Lisa chose the name Lala because it is her childhood nickname and she loves acronyms, so Love and Laugh Always. was born.
Lisa chose to create an environment where someone could have a great experience. Not only offering great products at good prices, but having an atmosphere that smells wonderful, has pretty décor, fun and upbeat music, and friendly staff.
Lisa loves being right on Main Street in the Village, watching people walk by, stopping to peek at the windows. Many people walk their dogs and stop to get a treat. Customers love that Lisa supports local artisans. She says, “There are so many friendly people out there, and they want to see Lala’s succeed, so they send their friends and family. What greater compliment is there than that?”
Lisa expanded Lala’s during the 2020 pandemic, adding many more gift items and a second floor with beautiful clothing and accessories. Lala’s has five employees, plus Lisa, and friends and vendors who come in to help, too!
In addition to being an active member of the Webster Chamber of Commerce, hosting two Eat, Drink, & Connect events, Lala’s has participated in the Village Wine Walk, Trick or Treat Trail, and Christmas Parade. They also support many area businesses, schools, and clubs through donations. Lisa loves to create fun gift packages for auctions and always includes a gift certificate so she can meet the winners.
Please join us in congratulating Lisa and Lala’s as the Webster Chamber of Commerce September 2021 Business of the Month.
