A stroll down jenny lane...
Welcome to Jenny Lane!
I founded Jenny Lane Boutique January 1st, 2019.
In October of 2018, a teacher’s worst nightmare happened to me: I was excruciatingly assaulted by one of my students; my 5th assault in five years of teaching. That year, I was one of 35 teachers in my district to have been assaulted on the job that school year. It was only October. School wasn’t even in session for 2 full months.
I quickly became well-acquainted with the female oppression heavily affecting both the educational system as well as the legal system. The injustices to me and other teachers enraged me. After 28 years working towards a very specific career, I felt crushed when my passion and career no longer flowed peacefully together. I contained so much anger and rage over the injustices. But I didn’t want to be plagued with anger. I wanted to use that anger to empower others.
Here in America, women STILL make 81-91 cents to every dollar a white man makes and in that moment in my life, I had more men making decisions FOR me than I made for myself. Something needed to change. I needed my own voice.
I resigned from teaching in January of 2019 to run my business full time! This is when I created the Jenny Lane Mission:
“To help empower women to feel beautiful.”
You'll notice the whole beauty line revolves around empowerment and feeling comfortable in your skin. (Lorde+Belle & RealHer)
So, I got to work honing my skill as a makeup artist and social media guru. I began doing people's makeup and social selling my favorite brands!
In June of 2019, I expanded my boutique to offer affordable fashion for every size! What better way to empower females than by offering budget-friendly ways to wrap themselves in expressions of beauty and independence? In Septmeber of 2023, I expanded my fashion line to include Park Lane Jewelry. This new adventure has been so exciting and sparkly!
So welcome to Jenny Lane Boutique!
Make yourself at home!
It is my deepest desire that Jenny Lane will become a judgement-free, safe haven where you can be unapologetically YOU, always.
