Akron has a new in-home business, operated by Emily Colt, of Akron.

Colt is hosting her official LuLaRoe® Launch Party from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 7 at Broken Kettle Wine Cellars in Akron.

LuLaRoe® is a direct sales company that sells women’s and men’s clothing. Colt has recently become an Independent Fashion Retailer with LuLaRoe®, which has a mission of “Where through fashion we create freedom, serve others and strengthen families. A place where lives are being improved and dreams achieved through love, purpose, confidence, trust and growth.”

“Back in high school I was a jock,” said Colt. “I didn’t care much for fashion. I just wanted a T-shirt and jeans, and I was set. I was comfortable and that was a big thing to me — I wanted to be comfortable.”

“As a mom of four, I’m always looking for something that fits me just perfectly,” she said. “My body’s not perfect so sometimes finding clothing is just difficult.”

“As someone who has never really had an interest in fashion up to this point, LuLaRoe® brings out creativity in me that I haven’t seen in a long time,” said Colt. “Becoming a LuLaRoe® Fashion Retailer has prompted me to look into what’s going on in the fashion world. Never in a million years would I have imagined I’d be looking at the fashion runways or looking in different magazines to see what the next season’s color palette will be.”

“With LuLaRoe I feel creative when putting pieces together to form outfits,” she said. “Stripes, solids, florals…it all amazes me how all those prints, patterns and solids could form an amazing out.”

When looking for a home-based business, Colt chose LuLaRoe® because she wanted to share with women LuLaRoe®’s unique clothing line and the shopping experience. Jokingly adding, “It’ll save me money out of my pocket, too,” which her husband, Chris Colt, agrees with.

“I just love how LuLaRoe® clothing makes me feel,” said Colt. “I feel comfortable. I can feel dressed up or dressed down all with the same outfit.”

“One thing I feel while wearing my LuLaRoe® outfits is confidence,” she said. “That’s a big deal to me, and I know it’s a big deal for other women out there. Our confidence tends to start on the outside first, so if we feel we look good, we feel good in return, and it is projected to those around us.”

“I have a feeling I can accomplish anything with confidence I gain from wearing a rocking outfit from LuLaRoe®,” said Colt. “I want other women to understand how I feel when I wear LuLaRoe® and to feel it when they wear it,” she said. “You don’t have to go to the department store and spend three hours in the fitting room and not be able to find something you really want or leave unhappy.”

The Remsen native graduated from Remsen Union High School in 2002 and came to Akron in 2008. In 2013, she married Akron native, Chris Colt, an Akron-Westfield Class of 1993 alum.

Colt invites all to come to the Sip & Shop and try on the different LuLaRoe® styles, sign up to win LuLaRoe® door prizes and possibly be the Mystery Hostess winner. Participants will also enjoy sipping some of Colt’s personal Broken Kettle Wine Cellars wine stash.

There are many ways to shop Colt’s LuLaRoe® business. People can host their own LuLaRoe® Pop-Up Party in their home. Colt will also be part of numerous area vendor events and conduct live sales via social media. People can also make appointments to shop at her home-based business.

LuLaRoe® founder Deanne Stidham created LuLaRoe® with the intention to produce the following results: “improving lives, strengthening families and relationships, to serve others, to achieve our dreams and to create freedom.”

“The third reason I chose LuLaRoe® is they want you to succeed, which is a huge plus for me in making the decision to become part of LuLaRoe®,” said Colt.
