Oprah picks our Lollia as favorite!

Lollia does it again!
We are "bubbling" over with excitement! What is it about Oprah? She just KNOWS what's hot. Once again,
our yummy Lollia bubble bath makes her "favorite things" page.
We are not surprised, after all, the stuff smells soooooooo scrumptious.

A few drops in a warm bath will totally relax your body and mind. The scent will transport you to a peaceful place of tranquility. Made from a blend of natural ingredients, this beautiful bottle will look lovely in your powder room. Did you notice the gorgeous crystal tear drop charm that is draped around the bottle's neck? Luxurious, indeed! Comment if you agree or tell us what is your favorite scent.

Looking for a gift for the person who has everything? This is it. You can even put on the card that Oprah thought they would like it. Stop by for a sample of Lollia at Tales by the Sea in Sandestin! Tell them Heidi LoCicero sent you.

SELF magazine picks our Lollia as Best! by Heidi Locicero of Baton Rouge, LA

Get this for yourSELF!
Lollia brand products are taking our shop by storm! At first, we thought it was the yummy fragrances that had everyone swarming. Then we thought, perhaps, it was the simply gorgeous packaging that the designer encased each item in. (Just look at the lovely crystal prism that hangs from most of the item. Just a lit touch of decadence.) Now, we know it's all of the above.

Lollia products are irresistible. If the editors at SELF magazine say it...we, the staff at Tales by the Sea believe it. They never steer us wrong. This line is addictive, just like the SELF magazine.

Please come stop by the shop for a free sample. You can select from one of 4"stories" as the "Lollites" call them: WISH, DREAM, IMAGINE, and BELIEVE.

Welcome to the Lollia Life now available at Tales by the Sea. What is Lollia you ask? (You obviously have not been reading Lucky, Cosmo, Self, Oprah or Glamour magazines, much! We're here to help, not to worry.)

Lollia is a world created with lovely details, blushing fragrances and flirtatious touches.

According to Lollia enthusiasts, "Lollia was created by designer Margot Elena, an innovator of luxurious formulas and signature packaging for over a decade.

Drawing upon her success, Margot envisioned a new lifestyle company with a broad range of beautiful designs, offering a complete world of diverse and delightful products. Inspired by soft, sophisticated textiles and the warmth of lovely homes the Lollia look comes to life.

Lollia's ever expanding range offers finely made lifestyle items for life and home and brings distinctive design and attention to even the smallest, charming details. Lollia feels sweetly familiar and delightfully luxurious. Traditional motifs are re-introduced into the signature designs and color pallets of the Lollia world."

Join the staff at Tales by the Sea in Sandestin, Florida in celebrating gracefulness and beauty with Lollia's signature mix and match patterns. "Unconscious allure. Unstudied sophistication. Quiet moments and close friends." This is Lollia.

Each product is sold in "stories," a.k.a. fragrances. Our best sellers are Breathe, Wish, Inspire and Relax. Come in to find your story in the Lollia Life Library now offered at Tales by the Sea. You will fall in love with this beautiful line.
