My very first small business started as a dream from the corner of my living room. They say everything happens for a reason, and after starting off as a retail specialty toy business, I found myself turning to my creative side.  Beginning with designing jewelry and apparel for little girls, inspired by my daughter's love of dress up.  I was constantly encouraged to open an Etsy shop, and in 2016, I finally took the leap.  Inspired by the Gilmore Girls revival (and coffee), I designed my first adult apparel collection, and to my surprise, it took off. Within 5 months, I decided to focus women's apparel and on building my brand, so I moved my business to its own website.

Today, Painted Lavender is a growing boutique offering hand printed apparel, accessories, stationery, and a curated selection of women's fashion to inspire, empower and spread joy.  All of our graphics are either designed by me, commissioned and exclusive to our brand, or carefully curated. Everything is packaged and shipped with love, from our home base in Northern California.

Words cannot express how grateful we are for the support of this community that inspires me and allows me to continue to pour my creativity and love into new designs and curated products.  We hope that every package you receive from us puts a smile on your face, because every time we receive an order from you, you put a huge smile on ours.
