Meet The Face
Our store's manager came to Lafayette in 2019. Already working in the fashion industry, she was the perfect choice to join our team. In 2020, during the pandemic Halie was instrumental in keeping the doors open and helping by years end making 2020 a better year than 2019. During the pandemic Halie played a key role in helping develop and add ecommerce to the store, which helped increase 2021 store sales over 2020. Early last year Halie became a full time employee and the official manager of the store, making many independent decisions to run the day to day. Along with running the day to day Halie is also our wedding expert helping with custom invitations and all other wedding needs and also handles all of our in house printing. Halie knows and understands the wants and needs of our many loyal and frequent customers, helping them with all of their personal shopping needs.
Last October Halie married Trevor and this November they are expecting their first child.
In May of 2021 after losing our artist we were so fortunate to have Courtney come into our life. While still teaching high school art, Courtney took on the task of all of our painting personalization. In 2022 after having her son Colter, her and her husband Blaine made the decision for her to stay home with Colter. This decision allowed for Courtney to take on a larger role at Two Tulips. While still handling all of the personalization needs, Courtney also now handles most of all of the website maintenance, a huge part of our social media from home and also works closely with Halie on special events, windows and covering the floor.
Along with all of the mentioned above, Courtney and her mom are providing Two Tulips with homemade treats from Mimi's (grandma's) family recipes including toffee which has been a staple here at Two Tulips for many years.
After years of wanting to add a new element to the store, but never quite figuring out how, in drops Julia into our lives. After retiring as the longtime Central Catholic Athletic departments administrative manager, she was looking for a new chapter in her life. Boldly seeking us out at our friends birthday party, Julia and Carla talked and within a week Rush by Two Tulips was born. Carla and Julia are partners in this new venture of supplying Purdue and other Indiana universities their Sororities retail merchandise. Julia has jumped in head first and has not yet come up for air. If you haven't met her.... she is a ball of fire, never met a stranger and is the perfect person to interact with all of the young women in each of the houses. She treats each and every individual she meets like they are the most important person in her life.
Lookout sororities in the South. Julia is working hard to put the Rush by Two Tulips on the map.
Julia is married to Allen and has 3 adult children.
