This week we are launching our newest collaboration: Lila + Hayes x HONEY + HANK! The collection of super soft, pima cotton pajamas and play clothes in our Texas Cowboy Book print has us ready for all things fall in Texas.
Today we're introducing you you to the women entrepreneurs behind Lila + Hayes, Amanda and Paige. Check out our new collab here, and read on to learn about what makes Lila + Hayes so special.
Tell us about yourselves!
We are both Texas girls, born and raised! Paige spent her childhood here in Fort Worth, and Amanda grew up in Lufkin, a small town in East Texas. Amanda graduated from TCU and Paige from the University of Texas, and both found themselves making a permanent home in Fort Worth after short stints in Dallas after college.
The two first met through their husbands, who had grown up together, and became friends years before they dreamed of starting a business together. Paige now has two children, Hayes (12) and Council (8), and Amanda has three - Lila (11), Griffin (9), and Will (6). Both share a love of fashion and interior design, and have channeled that into the creation of all the prints and styles you see in Lila and Hayes products!
What inspired you to create your super soft, pima cotton pajamas?
As our first-born children, Lila and Hayes, started to grow out of layette sized clothing, we couldn't find the soft and sweet things we had found for them as babies. We went to market in Dallas to make sure it wasn't out there, and found a true gap in the market! Ten years ago, we flew on whim with some big ideas and a few sketches to Lima, Peru, to a pima cotton trade show and from there, Lila and Hayes was born!
We loved coming together with another female-owned Texas brand to celebrate our home state. What do you think makes Texas so unique?
We LOVE everything about Texas! We love the heartfelt state pride of Texans, and the true Southern style and culture you find here. It's a BIG state, but everywhere you go, you run into people you know from all facets of life. Both of us enjoy all the things Texas big cities have to offer, and love a chic restaurant or boutique, but also relish relaxing in the Texas countryside with our cowboy boots and beautiful Texas sunsets.
Describe your perfect morning spent in Lila + Hayes Texas Boots pajamas.
Amanda: My perfect morning would be lounging on my backyard patio sofa on a cool fall morning with a latte, a blanket and a magazine!
Paige: Mine would be snuggled up with a comfy blanket next to the fire with my dogs or kids and drinking a large cup of coffee!
Thank you, Paige and Amanda! Make sure to shop the collection here to grab your Lila + Hayes x HONEY + HANK Texas Cowboy Boot pajamas before they're gone!
