2016 : A Year in Review

2016 : A Year in Review

2016 has been a wild ride at Lettie Gooch! From completing our first full year at our Shaw location, hosting events, and carrying cool trends. In honor of it coming to a close, we would like to reflect on our top 5 favorite moments! 

5. Hosting the Girls Do! event.

Girls Do! Is a brand who's goal is to create and encourage a community of women to take chances,learn new skills and discover talents that in turn will empower them to become better versions of themselves. Their goal is to also help women connect with one another ,and build great relationships!

They had organized ice breaker games to help everyone connect, gave out gifts, and encouraged mingling over snacks, sweet treats, and drinks.

4. Fox 5 News Zip Trip Feature!

On July 22, 2016 we were featured on Fox 5 News Zip Trip segment for their Shaw edition at Carnegie Library! Yours truly was featured on TV as one of the go to businesses to visit in the one of the oldest neighborhoods in DC!

The best part about this experience was being able to have some of our awesome customers model our favorite looks!

3. New York Times Travel Feature! 

This year was also a great year for press at LG. The New York Times featured us in their September 11th issue in the travel section!

Their piece titled, "Five Places to Go in D.C.'s North Shaw Neighborhood" showed us great love as they shared our story and connection to the community. 

2. Shop Small Saturday! 

Being a proud local business in the community, we participated in Small Business Saturday on November 26. 

We celebrated shopping Small by having a sale, treats, drinks, and a DJ. We were also honored to have our first customer be DC Mayor, Muriel Bowser! 

1. Lettie Gooch Turns 10! 

Last but certainly not least, Lettie Gooch turned 10 years old this year!  Thanks to all of your support we were able to celebrate this great feat! Our customers, old and new came out in the celebration as they wore vintage LG favorites, shared cherished memories and of course partied! 


2016 has been an eventful year thanks to the Lettie Gooch Community! We share wholehearted gratitude for the continued love and support. Looking forward 2017 together!
