The flower shop celebrates its first month of existence

A new flower shop gives customers the ability to enable styling for their flower arrangements.

After about five years in the floral industry, owner Ashley Longoria has her own retail space for Lavenders, a floral boutique located at The Station.

Lavenders opened on April 4, and the Sachse Chamber of Commerce held a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, April 28.

Longoria said she primarily created floral arrangements for weddings during the first four years of her career as a floral designer before branching out a year ago. She used to do all the design work, but has hired more employees and still does about a third of the store’s designs.

“I knew then that I wanted to expand and do more than just weddings,” Longoria said. “So I found inspiration in other floral shops around DFW and wanted to create my own version of that.”

Longoria managed to create something unique, mixing flowers with the possibility of buying gifts and even a bottle of wine or champagne.

“If you’re in a rush and it’s your birthday, and you forget, you can just stop here and get your flowers, your wine and a card,” Longoria said.

Shoppers can also purchase a plant from the store, select a decorative pot, and add soil to it. Those who do will receive a 10% discount on their purchase.
