Growing up in a family of ten I am extremely blessed to have a great family. I am the only girl so the last thing my mother wanted was a tomboy. At the age of three she enrolled me in dance class. Dancing was a part of my life throughout my school years then I stopped to raise a family.
The year my youngest went off to college was the same year my mother passed away. That fall I started to take classes again. Dance classes were a way for me to destress, exercise and have a second chance at a true passion.
Then I started creating unique items for little girls at the dance studio. I was concerned about juggling a decorating career and a dance related business.
But then I decided to combine the two and create an E-Commerce business. Not just tutus: tutus with a twist and more.
I set out to create the most unique tutus items for all ages from the tiniest princess thru adults bringing the passion of dance outside the studio and into the home.
It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.
Building a website is easy but getting people to find you on the Internet is difficult. A picture is worth a thousand words but if no one sees your products it does not matter.
So we did our research on ways to promote our site and reach customers who would benefit from our products. Countless hours of surveys, analysis, customer feedback and sleepless nights. Some days self doubt would creep up because you’re robbing Peter to pay Paul while pursuing your passion asking yourself can I really do this?! But I had to just Believe, take a leap of faith and follow my dream.
Life is short so live, love, smile and wear tutus! You can’t help but smile when you see someone wearing a tutu!
Our mission is to bring a smile to the face of every little girl who receive a Tutunyou product.
We released our first products in 2014 and the response has been pure magic!
Whether it is one of our fabulous tutus, a creative decoration or a customized princess dress, there is something for your little dancer. It is our hope that with one of our products we will bring happiness to a dancer and help them to become the shining star that they are.
Custom order request are always welcome.
