LOVED by Lacy & Olive

LOVED by Lacy & Olive

Olivia, my daughter, has been my inspiration for Olive Mae.  Now that she is getting older, she has so many of her own ideas in regards to design and gifts for little girls.  I am so proud of her, so I wanted to hand over the reins to Olivia and give her an opportunity to share a few of her favorite shopping finds with you.

In this mystery box, "LOVED" by Lacy and Olive, you will discover an Olive Mae piece designed by me and other special treasures carefully selected by Olive. A couple of fun reminders:

  • $100 per box.
  • No limit on how many you can purchase.
  • For each month, the people who purchased the previous month's box will have first dibs.  I will then post any remaining boxes on the website for purchase.
  • All boxes will be identical per month.
  • The Olive Mae item runs TTS.
  • No cart passes!
  • Limited quantity.

Military Families

Military Families

My sweet husband joined the Navy right after our oldest son was born, and I thought what an exciting adventure we are about to go on! Some parts were super exciting, like moving exporaing a new city, making lots of new friends.  

There were also sad times like the time Manny was sent to Bahrain for two years, and that year I was pregnant with Olivia and he had to work nights so we only saw each other one night a week. Not everyone is as lucky as I am, my husband is home safe, our family is together, and this is not the truth for some families we met along our journey. We lost friends to war, to the after effects of war.

Military Families hold a special place in my heart.  We will be making a special post and having a giveaway for military families for Memorial Day. If you know a military family with an OMG girl, we would love to know their story.  Please email us and put Memorial Day in the subject line.

Fun summer photoshoots with the sweetest friends

Fun summer photoshoots with the sweetest friends

We have been taking our photoshoots on the road this summer, traveling to some of our favorite fun destinations!  Olivia, Aria, and Sunday are just the sweetest friends and love getting together for shoots! These photos feature some of our new items including the Coastal Cutie, Song of Summer tunic, and Admiral Peplum.  They were taken at Silver Lake Marina in Grapevine, Texas.  This destination is so fun and was perfect for some of our nautical items.  They were very sweet at this location and even let the girls board the catamaran boat for a few shots! 
Aside from getting some great photos of our products, these girls are making memories and having fun! We typically treat them to lunch or some play time after the shoot!  We typically have their siblings tagging along too! We let the kids splash around in the lake after our shoot and then headed to Grapevine Mills Mall to eat lunch at Rainforest Cafe! It was Olivia's first time there, and they all had a ton of fun together.

Your little one will be in paradise in this sweet tunic!

Your little one will be in paradise in this sweet tunic!

The Song of Summer tunic is one of my favorites for summer! I love having a cool, sleeveless option for summer and these colors are just to die for! If you look closely, you'll see the cutest little yellow birds in the skirt fabric! They pair perfectly with the blue top and teal in the skirt.  The pink gingham along the skirt makes a perfect accent as well! Who doesn't love a little pink in their summer tops! 

This soft, knit top features a keyhole opening in the back.  It's super comfortable for summer! The skirt is so sweet as well, and it goes great with any denim or ruffle shorts! Wherever you are headed for summer, this top will be perfect for your little one!

This versatile peplum will pair with all your favorite summer shorts!

Olive Mae is known for mixing and matching various fabrics on most of our items, but occasionally I find something I love that stands up on it's own.  This super soft cotton voile fabric is a favorite of mine for summer.  The fabric is really cool and lightweight! I love blues for summer! I think blue looks so great on everyone! 

I love how soft and flowy this top is! There are so many color matches for this neutral print! We have paired it with red for a patriotic look, and this summery mint for a cute nautical look that paired perfectly with our Coastal Cutie dress.  If you are looking for a cute, summer sister set, consider these two! They may be an unexpected pairing, but look how sweet they are on our cute little models! Perfect for a day on the lake!

The cutest dress for your summer destinations, near and far!

The cutest dress for your summer destinations, near and far!

When designing dresses for summer, I look for fabrics that remind me of all our summer activities! We love spending time at the lake with friends, boat-watching, and having summer cook-outs! The Coastal Cutie dress features the cutest sailboats, anchors, and polka dots! It is available now on our site!  I just love the super cute combination of pink and navy with the nautical themed fabrics!  

The top is a soft knit fabric in pink polka dot, and features a keyhole opening at the neck.  The sleeves are the cutest pink gingham.  These pair perfectly with the nautical anchor and sailboat fabrics throughout the dress.  Whether you are traveling to a fun summer destination, or staying close to home, the Coastal Cutie dress will be oh so cute on your little one!

Rainy Day Playing

Rainy Day Playing

I just love a lazy Saturday at home with my babies! During the week, we are in such a rush to get dressed in uniforms, grab something to eat, and make it to school, daycare, and work on time.  Saturdays are for dressing yourself, relaxing, and having fun!  This morning it was so rainy outside, and the kids were disappointed they couldn't go out to play.  So I prepared their favorite breakfast and we had some morning cuddles and breakfast on the couch.  It was not too long before the rain subsided, and they were so excited to get outside and play.  We grabbed a few fun things from the garage and out they went to run and play with chalk, bubbles, and hula hoops.  

I just love watching these two play together! They really are best friends (most of the time)!  And I just love these bright colors on Olivia! This top just screams spring and summer to me, and while the rain boots were practical on this day, they really made the outfit!

Sometimes we love to run place to place at all the places on our summer to-do list.  Other weekends, we love to stay home and avoid the rushing around.  I'd love to know what fun, summer activities you enjoy at home with your family!

Olive Mae's First Annual Easter Egg Hunt!

Olive Mae's First Annual Easter Egg Hunt!

An Olive Mae egg hunt is something that I have been thinking about for years, but never seemed to find the time to do.  A few months ago I met Adrianne when she brought her daughter, Aria, to do a live video and I knew right away that we would be friends! Lucky for me, not only is she a great friend, but she is amazing at organizing events!  Bonus!  Adrianne mentioned how much Aria loves egg hunts and said that Olive Mae should do one. Quality Care Pharmacy in Wylie, which is owned by Adrianne and her husband, Craig, teamed up with OM right away and got to planning this fun community event! In addition to the pharmacy we had lots of people donate prizes. Thank you so much to:  Catherine Locklin-Realtor with Keller Williams, In Awe Couture, the Chik-Fil-A at Cityline, and ElizaKate Headbands...y'all really helped make this event extra special!  

We had four mini egg hunts, divided by age so the little kids could have a grown-up help them and the big kids could go crazy!  There were lots of prizes in the eggs (though we learned an important lesson about putting chocolate candies in the eggs), like OM gift cards, a WellieWisher doll, Shooting Stars, dolls, and gift baskets.  We learned also,spring weather can be crazy in Texas, so remember to re-apply sun block!

It was an all together amazing event that left me overwhelmed and near tears from seeing so many of y'all excited for this egg hunt...plus all your daughters dressed in my designs is always such an amazing feeling! It's fun for me to see all the pictures online... thanks for sharing!  The egg hunt has been one of the most fun OM days that we've had in a while and I can't wait for our next event! Hope to see you there!

A big thanks to all of our sponsors:

Meet the Team!

Meet the Team!

Hey everyone! I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce you to the Olive Mae Team! These are a few of the faces who keep the gears turning here in the office. 

Hannah - Shipping

This is Hannah, She takes care of all the shipping needs. She is usually the one who irons and packages all of the items, checking them for any imperfections along the way. She makes sure that your purchase is high quality and ready to go out. Hannah joined the team about a year ago.  

Kaylynn - Master Sewist

Meet Kaylynn, Hannah's big sis and pretty much twin who makes samples, fixes defects, and makes sure that production is running smoothly in the shop. Kaylnn was my first employee. We met online and she made samples for me in her home. She even got into some production work for me for a while. We love her and she is an expert pattern maker and sewest. Kaylnn and Hannah's family own a bee farm where they grow their own honey. If you love local honey, check out Mansker Family Farm.

Nubia and Brenda - Master Sewists

Mostly sewing our production. They do an amazing job and we love them so much! 

Adrienne - Head of Social Interactions

This is Adrienne, my other half! hile She helps organize photo shoots, brand reps, and brand enthusiasts. She also does our social media and answers the emails!! She has been close to Olive Mae from the day we opened, but she just recently officially joined our team and I'm so happy to have to her at the studio with me!

Lacy - Owner/Founder

I am the owner and founder of Olive Mae. I have dreamed of owning a boutique for a long time and now my dreams are not only a reality, but I am reaching new goals every day and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love!

Not pictured but still two people who are very special to Olive Mae

Keri Evans - We met at the old store front in downtown Plano and instantly became friends! She is so great, brain-storming new ideas with me! She's also been helping out some in the design department.

Val Henry - Y'all might know Val from the BST boards and while she is not an official employee of OM she is here a few days a week helping with whatever we have going on! And all of the photos in this post were taken by her ❤️❤️❤️

While I wish I could say I'm a one woman show, I'm not, and I'm SOOOO grateful for the lovely women who work with me day in and out! 

Thank you OMGs for supporting us every week! Without y'all we couldn't do what we love, and that's design and make this beautiful clothing. 

Knowing that something I thought up in my head and then brought to life with my team puts a smile on your face, brightens up a gloomy day, or is a part of special memories like birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings, makes it all worth while. 

So thank you for sharing OM with your friends and family thank you for supporting my dream! 😘❤️😘❤️

Tornado Relief

Tornado Relief

On December 26, 2015 several tornadoes cause severe damage to areas of the DFW metroplex. As Texas natives, we felt the need to lend a helping hand to the relief effort.

We collected hygiene packs with toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and a comb. There was also support from our community of Downtown Plano. Amazeballs, a bakery down the street, started a collection as well and provided us with medicines, bathroom products.

The plan was to take the donations to Fields Recreation Center in Garland (a temporary shelter for victims of the tornado), but Lacy's sister, Jessica, gave birth the night before! So while Lacy was at the hospital caring for her sister and her new nephew, I took my kiddos along to drop off the much-needed donations.

On New Year's Day, I packed up the car with the hygiene kits, clothes, food, and a few toys. My almost 8 year old son, who is a cub scout, and my two year old daughter helped me carry the donations inside. The atmosphere was somber, but the volunteers made sure that we knew the donations were appreciated. My son had the chance to help bring in the few remaining belongings that a family had, and I will make sure that experience will stay fresh in his mind so that he will develop a gratitude for what he has in this world.

Ultimately we are incredibly saddened by the loss, that has occurred in North Texas in the past few weeks, but we are glad that so many in multiple communities have come together to provide resources for those affected.
