Love Fiercely

LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO: LANDRY KATE

 A few months ago, I was walking to my car in McKinney & saw this amazing store… It was called Landry Kate.

 

Landry Kate is a chic clothing boutique located in the heart of historic downtown Mckinney, Texas. I decided to go inside & the first thing I noticed was not just the AMAZING clothes – as I was walking around the store, I felt something different & I realized they were playing worship music. It’s not often that you walk into a store & feel peace. In fact, most of the time when you go shopping – you are greeted by the blaring sound of the top 5 songs on the pop charts… & I was very pleasantly surprised while shopping. After trying on an abundance of items, I went up to the register & told the woman behind the counter how I loved the store. Funny enough, this woman ended up being the store owner. Her name was Lauren.

 

Not long after – I had the privilege of learning about how the store was founded & the heart behind it all! The owner, Lauren Lee first began Landry Kate by doing small pop ups locally in 2015. She had always dreamed of opening her own boutique, but when she had her daughter Landry, she knew it was time to finally fulfill this aspiration of hers. Lauren chose to take the risk of quitting her full time job to pursue her dream. Over the past few weeks I have been able to get to know Lauren. I love her heart & I love that she was strong enough to fight for & do anything to pursue her dreams. She told me that it was her family that inspired her to have the courage to take steps towards this dream of owning a boutique.

 

& God is so faithful, that it only took 3 weeks after she quit her full-time job in another field – & in June 2016 the official storefront, LANDRY KATE was started in the historic downtown McKinney square in Texas in the summer of 2016. When I asked Lauren why she named her store Landry Kate, she told me that she named it after her daughter, because it was a symbol for her – she always wanted to balance being a mom & a business woman. As I was researching what those names meant, I found out that Landry means {Powerful} & Kate means {Pure}… I love this because this is exactly what this store represents.

 

They have clothes, like many stores do & they offer a wide range of fashion forward clothing like other brands… But what I believe sets this company apart, is their heart to honor God as they simultaneously strive to make every woman beautiful. The owner, Lauren expressed to me that her heart in playing worship music & the way in which she runs LK – is to create an atmosphere that honors God & represents Him well, as well as encourages individuals as they shop. I love local businesses, & I will always support people with hearts to honor God!

 

They have a verse listed on their Instagram that I believe will encourage you as you stand & fight for your own dream to come to pass!

 

Ephesians 3:20

God is able to do far more than we could ever ask for or imagine. He does everything by his power that is working in us.
