I know, I know! I know what you’re thinking - 2020 sucked so can we not do a review or recap and just pretend it didn’t exist?
While you have a valid point that 2020 was filled with some gut wrenching hardships, loss, and challenges- I would be remiss if I didn’t pay tribute to all the good things that have come out of this year. This list is a mix of personal and professional milestones or achievements that I have experienced this year. I think it's important to reflect on every year, with both positive and negative events- but for the purpose of this blog, we want to spread positivity and joy so I'll only be focusing on positive things that have come out of this year.
In April, amongst the height of the uncertainty around the pandemic... I gave birth to my first child, a beautiful, smart, sassy, little girl named Everly Reign. A mere 2 days after my 26th birthday. We’ll now share and cherish our shared birthday celebrations for years to come.
In July we signed our first commercial property rental lease on a 1,600 sq ft warehouse. By launching our own warehouse (instead of using a 3rd party company) we are now able to have much more control over our operations and order fulfillment. We were able to offer embossing for the holiday season because of this and just recently launched curbside pickup!
The Fall Collection was our first EVER full collection launch and it was a HUGE success! We are now hoping to offer a Spring and a Fall Collection in 2021! (Stay tuned for the official announcement.)
We launched The Insiders Secret Facebook Group only 3 months ago and are already at almost 1,000 members! The insiders Facebook group is a place for our VIPs and community to gather and chat! Whether asking for product recommendations, sharing GL&Co. wins, or just looking for a community of likeminded powerful boss babes- this group has truly become a living and breathing embodiment of the GL&Co. community!
While this year was FULL of ups and downs for our business, we were so overjoyed to see so many people shopping small and supporting businesses like ours this year. We felt such a sense of community from you all, helping to lift us up during the holidays after a tough year in business. We are so grateful for your support, and proud to say that because of you- we had more new customers this holiday season than any year previously!
In 2020 we had customers from all 50 states and 11 different countries!
Looking at our data from 2020 we had the most customers from the following states, cities, and countries.
The most popular color choice for customers this year was black.
Our most popular products this year were The Michelle, The Megan, and The Hepburn.
Every year, with your help, we work to give back to our community and various causes that are deeply important to us! It's hard to choose only a handful, but we hope that together we can make a difference, every year. Below is a summary of causes we've been able to support or donate to during 2020.
We are so excited to see what 2021 has in store for us. We are hopeful that this new year will bring great things and we are wishing you all happiness, peace, and success in the New Year!
Looking to help organize your resolutions and life moving into the New Year? We've got you! We are hosting our Annual Warehouse Sale starting 12/31 at 12pm PST! We'll be hosting a HUGE sitewide sale, to help you conquer your hustle in 2021.

We hope to see you there! 💕
