Hi! Katherine here, founder of Lalalinen. If there is one thing you should know about me first and foremost, it is that my family is my pride and joy — they are the single thing that I am most proud of. And so, it was only fitting that I name my business after my own mother, known affectionately as “Lala.” A beacon of joy and grace, an exceptional host, and an unmatched role model to myself and many others, it seemed an all too fitting title for my business.
In 2015 I was lucky enough to marry the love of my life, Evan. We were both from the same city and graduates of the University of Kentucky, yet we didn’t even meet each other until years later. Life has a funny way with timing — I’ve realized that goes both for my career and for my life outside of it. Evan and I now have two beautiful daughters and two English Springer Spaniels who fully rule the household. When I’m not knee-deep in orders, you’ll find me needle pointing, scuba diving, and traveling when I’m lucky.
In 8th grade, I was voted “most likely to be CEO of her own business.” It only took a full career in consulting, and two children before I finally got the courage to take that leap. I’ve always been drawn to custom embroidery and linens and the unique stories they tell, but admittedly, it all started simply as a therapeutic hobby — a way to scratch a creative itch that kept resurfacing. And yet, after some needed encouragement from a dear friend, I couldn’t ignore that emerging passion any longer. And so, heart in hand, in 2022 I said an official goodbye to consulting, said hello to Lalalinen, and thus fulfilled that middle school superlative after all.
So welcome! It brings me so much joy that you're here and that I’m able to be a small part of your precious life moments. From helping you design custom linens to celebrate a milestone birthday or helping you pick out a wedding gift to last a couple a lifetime, you are letting me help you craft a special memory for you and loved ones alike. It is an absolute honor to do what I do — a privilege I will never take for granted. So thank you for stopping by — I can’t wait to create something unforgettable with you!
Cheers & Gratitude,
