Yankee Magazine Feature

Have you ever attended a New England Coastal Creative Bloom conference? I recently attended my first Bloom conference in Newport, RI and all I can say is WOW! The power and energy of the women founders/ business owners in that room was off the charts. I am still smiling thinking about it now.

The highlight for Poppies was being chosen, out of all the amazing New England based brands, for THE FEATURED SPOT in the 2024 Mothers Day Gift Guide. It happened all because I raised my hand, in the packed room and shared the “why”, the “how” and “vision” of our shoes making an impact.

Guess what, Poppies was chosen and the lovely editor shared this on her Linked In Page:

When Poppies with Purpose founder Lisa Carlin shared the story behind her brand during my New England Coastal Creative Pitch Slam, she had everyone in the ballroom in tears. I’m pleased to feature her colorful shoes and the meaning behind them in our Yankee Magazine Mother’s Day Gift Guide, along with nine other fun ideas from creative, women-owned New England businesses.

Check out the featured link below and learn about the other nine New England based brands from these incredible women.


With color and purpose this mothers day,
