Hello, I’m Pamela Shockey, one of the buyers for lou lou! I was born and raised in Bethesda, MD. I attended Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA, Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with a major in Art Studio, from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL. I moved to Loudoun County, Virginia over ten years ago. I live in this beautiful part of the country with my husband, two boys and two dogs. Not only do I have a passion for art but for fashion as well!
My love for fashion developed early on in grade school. As a pre-teen, I would beg my mom to take me to Benneton to pick out various candy colored wool sweaters. The euphoria I felt after acquiring this beautiful garment would last for months, as I would wear this piece again and again. I also experimented with my style by applying Clorox washes to my jeans to get a desired effect. Not only did I love the results, but my friends did too. Naturally, my style has evolved over the years. These days I feel most comfortable in a tank top, open cardigan and skinny jeans with my favorite lou lou accessories.
My artistic background and retail experience have helped me tremendously when looking for the best pieces to offer our lou lou customers. I take pride in finding some of the unique and one of a kind pieces that both lou lou accessory and clothing stores have to offer. It is so gratifying to see my finds come to life in our boutiques. I love the challenge of choosing the right merchandise for our fashion conscious customers. Our goal is to have something for everyone in every budget!
