I am Meegan, the creator behind Lollie and Mee. I live in Toowoomba, Queensland with my husband and two beautiful Labradors Rhani and Lola, “shortened” to Lollie. I am a full time primary teacher (Prep teacher and couldn’t love it more). When I’m not teaching or creating I love spending time with family and friends, the beach, discovering a new restaurant and destination.
My venture with Lollie and Mee started with my own love for handmade earrings and accessories. Originally, I was making earrings for myself because I struggled to find handmade earrings that suited both day to day and evening wear. So I set out with a goal for myself to create a range of accessories which catered to both day and night. I was constantly being asked where I’d gotten my L&MS, along with requests from friends, family and work colleague for pairs of their own. I noticed that when others were wearing their L&MS how much they loved them and how it brightened their day. Wanting to make it possible to share my unique day brightening accessories with more people I decided to give it a go as a small business.
The hardest part was what to name the business, I wanted something that was meaningful to me and that matched the bright and eye catching accessories. After many, many weeks of deliberation my Mum suggested Lollie and Mee. It was an instant yes, Lollie as in our beautiful five year old chocolate Labrador and Mee represents the first part of my name (I know all you dog lovers would understand!).
Since launching in June 2019, Lollie and Mee has built an amazing community which is supported by those who follow us on Instagram and Facebook, have stopped by our stall at markets, orders from around Australia, ranging from Mt Isa to South Australia, to Tasmania, and even a number of international orders.
I love being able to create and share my unique accessories with you all. This wouldn’t be possible without the love and support from some amazing friends and family
Love Lollie and Meegan xx
