Do you ever look at that ever-growing pile of clothes coming out of the dryer and think, “My kids don’t even fit in half of these. What am I supposed to do with them?” If you are like us, you probably have gotten your money’s worth out of Target storage bins and space bags, and please do not even try to open up our children’s closets (can you say disaster?). You may have donated their unfitting clothes or even tried to sell them to a consignment shop, only to be disappointed with the time and process to do so. Meanwhile, as the seasons change, our kids keep growing and keep needing wardrobe replenishments. No matter how many sales we look for, it still becomes an excruciating fact that children’s clothes are a temporary and very expensive necessity — and that mounting pile of clothes they no longer fit in continues to grow.
That is when we discovered the solution to all of our child’s clothing needs through a locally created company, Lilladu Exchange. Lilladu is an online secondhand children’s clothing exchange that focuses on quality, ease, and affordability. Their personal stylists send you a quick questionnaire to learn your child’s individual personality and needs, and then they ship 12 pre-loved clothing pieces to your door that your child will immediately love. Each piece is professionally inspected and cleaned, so you only receive the best quality — guaranteed. Clutter be gone, Lilladu takes life’s need for simplicity one step further by providing a pre-labeled bag with your delivery to allow you the opportunity to exchange 12 of your children’s clothing pieces that no longer fit and easily mail it back. Each Lilladu exchange collection involves all of this, as well as a personal stylist. And it costs only $49. That’s $4 per quality clothing item! Don’t have clothes to exchange but still interested in quality, brand-name clothing at a fraction of the price? Check out the retail collection, which includes the same wonderful service with a personal stylist and 12 pre-loved clothing pieces shipped straight to your door for only $79.
Additional reasons we have fallen for Lilladu:
- Their huge range of children’s sizes involved in the exchange runs from 18 months to 5T.
- There is no subscription to sign up for; you request a collection on your schedule.
- All exchanges are customizable; both genders, multiple sizes, and various styles can all be requested within one exchange. Also, clothes can be sent in for one gender but the other gender can be requested in the exchange. Perfect for those families that have both boys and girls!
Finally, we can’t help but appreciate Lilladu’s unique commitment to giving back to their customers’ communities. The women who created Lilladu have a sweet spot in their hearts, not only for all of us moms but also for partnering with nonprofit organizations that mean the most to their customers. Lilladu recently announced their alliance with the United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, an organization with over 40 program sites throughout Southern California, serving people with all types of developmental disabilities. Lilladu donates a minimum of $2.50 to UCPLA for each package of clothing sold purchased with coupon code UCPLA10OFF — plus customers receive 10% off their purchase.
