I want to share PL's "About Us" story because I feel like it's one that a lot of us can relate to, both as women and as entrepreneurs. I think what she's doing is really awesome and I hope you take a chance to see for yourself!
loved wishing I could afford to spend just a few hundred dollars. It was so expensive that I never really bought anything. The more I thought about it, the more I felt empowered to open my own store. I decided that I wanted to create a place for women to buy clothes at a decent price without sacrificing quality or most importantly personality.
I brought the idea for Penelope Lane Clothing to my husband in February 2012. OK so I didn't just bring up and idea, I presented him with my business plan. I gave myself a modest budget of $1000 to buy inventory, get my business licenses and take care of other fees. If I didn't make money with that first investment then that was it, I was to move on and chalk it up as a bad idea.
So with the money in hand, I did what I needed. I took my first bit of inventory to a street fair and I made a small bit of cash. I took that cash and reinvested it in putting us online. This brings us to the present day.
Today Penelope Lane Clothing is open for business and I couldn't be happier. So again thank you for shopping at Penelope Lane Clothing you are supporting small business and my family, I sincerely mean this from the bottom of my heart you are letting me do something I love and that means so much to me.

How it'll work: A winner will be drawn at random at the close of the giveaway and will then tell Miss Holly her size. 3 items will shipped to the luckily winner! Total value of the items will exceed $50. (And that's $50 in PL pricing! Which is equivalent to $100+ at other online boutiques if I do say so myself!) Think of it like getting a subscription box, but for free. Kind of exciting! The items will be from PL's Fall collection so they're super secret, too.
