Founded just three years ago, Lucky You Flowers in Simsbury, Connecticut has grown rapidly. We spoke with owner Amy to find out how she carved out a totally unique space in a long-loved market: floral delivery.
When you order from Lucky You Flowers, you’re sending one of their entirely unique arrangements. Each bouquet is sent in a Chinese takeout box with a fortune cookie nestled in the bright arrangements. With several gift options, sender can customize the flower style, the box pattern, and the message found inside the fortune cookie.
Owner Amy first entered the market by wholesaling her unique creations. Soon, she took them direct to consumers, delivering joy to mailboxes nationwide. In order to ensure the products arrive in perfect form, the flowers are shipped in a protective bag and cute cylinder box. And with one set price point: $29.99 including delivery; these delightful arrangements are great gifts for all, from anyone.
Driven by Lifelong Passion
Like many entrepreneurs, Amy came to her business well-prepared. In fact, she holds some of the most notable degrees and certifications in the business! Amy holds a graduate degree from Harvard’s Landscape Institute and Boston Architectural College. Additionally, she is a certified Master Gardener from the University of Connecticut. Amy is even an active member of the Connecticut chapter of the Association for Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), where she was recently Vice President of the Board. Beyond that, Amy serves on the board of the Garden Club of Hartford where she chairs the floral design committee, of course.
In addition to her fondness for flowers, Amy’s an outdoor enthusiast and a member of the National Ski Patrol. And like so many entrepreneurial women, her passion for business is only outmatched for the love of her family and children.
Works to Grow With
Despite her vast expertise and background, Amy started with just one arrangement in her unique boxes, sent to a friend. Over the following months, they worked out how best to package, ship, and market the arrangements. In the following three years, Lucky You Flowers has shipped over 3,000 arrangements all over the country.
Customizable for any occasion – birthdays, sympathy, holidays, and even a subscription option, these arrangements are perfect for anyone on your list. Plus, Lucky You Flowers is ideal for events and corporate gifts, so quantity is never an issue.
