Eli’s Lids (+ Giveaway!)

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be featuring some of my favorite local (Southern California) companies. I hope you enjoy!

Eli’s Lids is a local small business run by one of my friends, Kara-Noel. Kara-Noel and I attend a lot of the same Orange County blogging events, and I’m always happy to see her smiling face. First off, this woman is a ray of sunshine – truly one of the kindest people I’ve met. (Remember the post about friends lifting you higher? Kara-Noel is that type of person – supportive, generous, kind, and really, really funny.) She’s also the mother of four little ones (5, 4, 1, baby…WHOAH) in addition to running Eli’s Lids.

Eli’s Lids just introduced a new line of hats for kids called Fedorables, and Kara-Noel asked my kiddos to be a part of her latest photo shoot. However, although I planned on both kids attending, little Wita ended up sitting this one out due to a few pesky incisors and a REALLY bad attitude. (As the three of us were walking out the door to the shoot, she grabbed a bowl of yogurt off the table and dumped it on her head while crying hysterically. I looked at D and said, “she’s all yours, honey.”)

The shoot was so fun, and the kids looked adorable in their fedoras. Fedorable, if I may…

Here are some great ones of Wito that I’ll love forever and ever amen.

In addition to the fedoras, the snowboarder lids are very popular around these parts. (My kids wore them all weekend in Mammoth – a post on our trip coming soon!) Also, Kara-Noel is donating part of the Fedorable proceeds to help bring little Henry home from China. You can read about Henry here.

So, two things going on today. First off, Kara-Noel is offering 30% off anything on the Eli’s Lids site from now until June 30, 2012 with the code WHOORL. How cool is that? In addition, we are giving away one Fedorable hat (in your choice of black or tan) as well as one Interchangeable. Just leave a comment on this post before Saturday, April 14th at 6pm PST and you’ll be entered to win. Good luck!
