So where did the name Pineapple Lain Boutique come from? Well, it’s funny you should ask! I was thinking about starting this boutique adventure a few months ago and as some of you may know, to move forward with an online store/website, you need to pick a domain to buy. I’d thought about different names for a while and I just couldn’t come up with anything that didn’t sound stupid. I started researching (thank God for Google!)articles on how to come up with boutique names; looking through the different pins that were posted on Pinterest, heck; I’d even used some of those boutique name generators that are out there! I just wasn’t loving anything.
One morning I woke up, and again, I was thinking about boutique names. I thought about an article I read that said when thinking of boutique names, try to think of things that you like or describe who you are. You know, make it personal - so I began listing out things that either describe me or things I like. I jotted a few words down and I came to pineapples. Pineapples. Yep, I LOVE those! So much so that I even have a tattoo of one! I think I knew at that point some part of the name would have pineapple in it – I just need something else in there to make it flow. I brainstormed for a bit and I came to the idea of “lane.” Oh wow, that cutesy, huh? I’ll go with that! Well guess what, that domain was not available and I thought I was back to square one!
My daughter Alaina just happened to come in the room where I was working to ask me something that only the Lord knows what it was at this point, and I responded to her; “yeah, sure Lain.” Suddenly it was like a light bulb just flashed on! Lain! It’s perfect! Not only is it a cool play on words for the word lane, but it’s also something that is super personal to me! Ha, you think?! 😊 It’s also a perfect fit because this little daughter of mine is my spitting image and she is quite the fashionista! The domain was available – I bought it and here we are now!
And that folks, is the birth of Pineapple Lain!
Thanks for following!
