During these colder autumn days summer seems like a long lost memory, but what a summer it was for us at Lilja the Label this year!
Let’s take a short walk on memory lane, shall we? Shortly after opening our first showroom in Helsinki April, our summer shop Bowls & Bikinis opened its doors in late May. Located in the heart of Punavuori (Iso Roobertinkatu 30 to be exact), Bowls & Bikinis combined the yummiest smoothie bowls and specialty coffees with our Lilja the Label summer shop. We were so excited to combine these two summery things under one roof, and are still so happy and grateful about all the great feedback we received from you!
A lot happened during these three months: We launched our collaboration at the summer shop with Finnish wellness influencer Laura Rosilla during May and are still so happy about the success and great response to this mini collection! After a couple of weeks, we also extended our all-day-breakfast menu with avocado bagels & banana bread, which we are already missing so much! Overall being lucky with an exceptionally warm and sunny summer in Helsinki, our terrace was packed most mornings and especially the weekends were super busy. Fortunately we had an amazing team that handled those busy times smoothly and allowed everyone to have the best time in our summer shop 🙂 Can you believe that at the peak of July, there was 11 of us altogether working at Bowls & Bikinis?!
We were open until the end of August and enjoyed every minute of it! We are already on the lookout for a new location for summer 2022 – Bowls & Bikinis 2.0 is definitely coming!!
