“When I opened my first store, I guess it was only perfect I named my business “Sola Lucy” which translates to “Only Lucy.” I was really on my own for the first time in my life, and in looking back, I’ve always been very independent by nature.”
Passion doesn’t even come close to describing Lucy’s love of fashion, but the one thing she always wondered is how it could be more green. She wanted to do something that combined fashion with community and give customers a place to shop that really meant something to them by providing a different approach to shopping at the big box retailers. So in 1994, she took the leap and opened Sola Lucy on a little Berkeley street off 5th and Delaware, and now she’s still going strong 18 years later.
As a conscientious consumer, Sola Lucy whole-heartedly believes in eco-friendly business practices. It’s the little things that count and make a difference in our daily lives. Sola Lucy’s customers bring their recycled bags which are reused every day for new client purchases. They make every effort to reduce the amount of paper produced daily by corresponding with their clients through email.
