Our Namesake

Who’s Lore and why do we love her? Love Lore is named for Ali’s loving and vivacious mother, Florence. Ali inherited her mother’s attention to detail and the propensity, just like Florence, to keep every printed invitation and holiday card she’s ever received. Occasions are special to Florence. Ali recalls every Easter when Florence used her Sharpie skills to win the family egg-decorating contest—and encouraged Ali to pick up the candy-colored pens herself. Always putting her daughter in early learning situations, Florence is pictured holding baby Ali at her sister Shirley’s wedding planned by none other than Martha Stewart before she was THE Martha Stewart. Talk about early influencers, Florence is at the forefront of Ali’s greatest inspirations.
