Visiting the Magical Kingdom any time soon? You’ll want to dress accordingly. LuLaRoe allows you just that. Disney inspired apparel that is hard to find.
Most of the chatter in the Facebook groups is dedicated to what shoppers and consultants call unicorns. Unicorns are “rare,” high-demand pieces that are hunted down by dedicated LuLaRoe fans. LuLaRoe recently bumped their run from 2,500 to 5,000 of each print, making them slightly easier to get your hands on — but not by much, when you consider that there are tens of thousands of consultants. The race for consultants to buy prints can be just as stressful as the race for customers to buy them from consultants.
“People enjoy the thrill of the chase,” says Sabrina Craig, a consultant out of Virginia Beach. “Finding Disney-inspired LuLaRoe is definitely a challenge.”
“I love the nostalgia,” Craig says. “You see a print and all you think of is watching that movie as a kid or the songs that you still know by heart. Probably my favorite part is that on the search for the Disney-inspired prints, you meet tons of people who share the same memories.” Her favorite prints include a black and white crocodile print for Peter Pan and brown and burgundy feathers on a navy background for Pocahontas.
LuLaRoe is a great platform to own a business, invite your friends, and be self employed and do something you love.
Founded in 2012, LuLaRoe’s comfortable and brightly colored clothing is rapidly gaining cult status, built almost entirely through the power of social media. Unlike most clothing lines, LuLaRoe pieces cannot be tried on or purchased at a department store or boutique. Instead, they’re sold to independent consultants (a la Mary Kay or Amway) who market these dresses, leggings, and tops directly to consumers.
LuLaRoe’s success is due in large part to their leggings. Frequently described as “buttery,” brand enthusiasts contend that LuLaRoe’s leggings are the best in the world. They’re soft, durable, and thick enough to be worn as pants, especially with one of LuLaRoe’s long tops or cardigans. Popular with everyone from working moms to college students, LuLaRoe’s leggings have helped launched a brand from relative obscurity to cult ubiquity.
