Layla & Jerry is an online boutique for the young-at-heart looking for a little freedom in the clothes they wear and products they use. This is our way of combining an affinity for fashion, technology, food, music, travel and art; all while finding beauty in the ordinary things in life to express a true hippie state of mind.
A little more about us...
We appreciate your interest in Layla & Jerry!
See the handsome little blonde pup? That's Jerry (Maltese & Yorkshire Terrier) named after Grateful Dead's god, Jerry Garcia. And our sweet baby Layla, a female Yorkie, whose name is from Eric Clapton's infamous song (and quite possibly the BEST piano solo of all time) "Layla". Rob and I cherish our two babies and share a deep passion and appreciation for music of all genres, but especially good ole' rock n' roll and jam bands from the decades before us.
Taking a leap of faith to move out of the states away from our family and friends, and jumping head first into new careers was challenging, but when I put on an album of Sam Cook or David Bowie I think about the messages behind the music during that time, and about my family, who ingrained the classics into my soul such as: Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Chuck Berry, Elvis, John Denver, Grateful Dead, Patti Smith, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Mamas & The Papas, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd - just to ramble off a few icons (which my family totally blasted around the house growing up). When listening to the music and the stories they tell, I'm inspired by their rebellion for authenticity, never getting comfortable, always pushing the boundaries. It reminds me why we made this journey to fulfill the American dream of entrepreneurship, as others did before us. Just trying to enjoy the ride along the way!
We started this online boutique in hopes of sharing the vintage vibes carried from generation to generation that still inspire us today, along with new innovations. We hope our products spread peace & love as you go about your day.
