Gifts of Wit & Whimsy
Lula Mae isn’t just a great place to shop, she was also a real lady. Lula Mae Whitfield Thomas was the great, great grandmother of shop owner Marci Toombs. She was mother to Lola, Vivian, Luther, Opal, and George. When Lola died much too young, Lula Mae took up the task of raising her daughters Charlene and Mazie. To this day, Aunt Mazie and Grandma Charlene are Lula Mae’s biggest fan’ s (the store and the person)!
Lula Mae made clothes for her whole family, kept house, and doled out advice. She even chased people away from the house with a shotgun and a one-liner: ” I’ ll see you later if the Devil has no objections.”
If these aren’t reasons enough to name the boutique after her, then we don’ t know what are! Lula Mae, gifts of style, wit, and whimsy, lives by the motto: “We think simple-simple, but we always end up overdoing it. More is more.” And is that really such a bad thing?! We are the retail equivalent of that friend of yours who never leaves the house without lipstick on, cracks you up over coffee, and always remembers your birthday.
Lula Mae is pleased to announce that we are celebrating our 8 year anniversary, all year long! We’ll take any excuse to have a party and as soon as we get this jar of olives open, we’ll be on our way.
We delight in making your Lula Mae experience unlike any other. Service like the good old days is our aim. We’ve got a huge crush on all things nostalgic.
Specializing in Celebration
If you haven’t been into the store, come on in and let us show you why we were voted Best Boutique in Pasadena by the gorgeous residents of this charming city.
When life gives you lemons, add vodka. For the cocktail shaker and the glasses, visit Lula Mae. We’ve got it all and we specialize in gifts for the girl who has it all. Unique bags by Hobo, too adorable for words baby booties by Robeez, paper goods by Knock Knock, and Pasadena Soaps is just a sample of the fabulous labels that we carry.
Whether you are shopping for yourself, your mom, or your best friend you’ll find selection ranging from baby, bath and body, home and garden, paper goods, books, handbags, jewelry, accessories, candles, and special holiday items. We love our customers so much that we’ll give you a treat with every purchase; even if all you need is a thank you card, we want to thank you for your loyalty.
Freshen up your drink and keep clicking, there’s more to see on our recently re-vamped website. The internet never looked so good. Come see what all the fuss is about. We are located at 100 North Fair Oaks Avenue in the heart of historic Old Pasadena California, 2 blocks north of Colorado Boulevard. We are open 7 days a week, and are always wearing high heels. Our feet hurt but it’s a small price to pay for glamour.
