Why Hello Friend, 

Holy smokes! Did you know that we are approaching our 1 Year Anniversary next month? I’d like to take this opportunity to take you on a stroll through the Lounge With Us Memory Lane. (Get your thumb ready, it’s worth the scroll!) But before I begin, I want to make sure you are aware of the most important part of the business to me: REAL women. I want to maintain a website that showcases real moms, owners, friends, co-workers & all alike. This work is ongoing. I want to feature real women in our communities on social media platforms & newsletters. I want to expose real groups of women who might not have the means to do so to other viewers. Why? Because we matter most.  Because your opinion is valuable & you have something to teach or help others. You really do. Here is a look back at one heck of a year! Please enjoy your stroll…


Never before seen footage of Mom & Dad stepping into the showroom for the first time. It was a very proud moment for each of us. My goal was also to create a physical space for clients to experience newer brands of loungewear. The company formed in August of 2020 & loungewithus.com launched in December 2020.

With the help of the very best girlfriends a girl can have, we began shooting photos of ourselves all around the house & in the hallway leading into the showroom (still do to this day). What better place to show realness than in our own homes? We eventually displayed them on the wall upon entering the showroom.

Oftentimes, these photo shoots were (& still are) excuses to drink wine & play with Dolly. Sorry, Mom.

We held our very own first Pop Up shop at The Porter in April 2021. This is a day I’ll never forget. So many of you came to shop, raffle, & support me during this spectacular day.  

Images are sent to me daily from you (& your pups) showing off your finest LWU pieces while ultimately living in comfort all day long.


Amanda, Emma & Vivian were the first three Real Charleston Women we featured & we are currently shooting our next three. This Series will continue indefinitely. If you or you know someone who would like to be featured, please shoot me an email at erin@loungewithus.com.

With 20+ Pop Up shops under our belts, we are now happily booked with Holiday Pop Ups each weekend all over South Carolina through the end of the year. 

The realness will remain as we continue to share photos & stories. We’ll continue defining what comfort means to all. My living room will probably continue to look like this (kidding, but for real sometimes) & there will be new developments to the website. Also some things just need to kept secret.


Stay tuned on Facebook & Instagram where we will soon announce the dates & locations of our 1st Anniversary LWU Sale. Giant (really mega) discounts & surprise gifts for the first 15 attendees each day. Details on Black Friday & Cyber Monday soon to follow! 

From this little girl’s first sales gig at the end of the driveway selling old fishing trophies to today, I’m so grateful for those relationships in my life for driving me to where I am now. Thank you for helping me take this leap, for taking your time to assist me with shoots & markets, & for making this past year, for me, the best year I’ve had. Now I’m typically not a speeder but things around here are accelerating. And I’d love for you to enjoy this ride too.
