Coney Goodies: Black Friday Turns Pink At Lola Star!

This holiday season you'll have to walk over from Union Square to Soho to find all the Lola Star goodies.  But it's well worth the wintry walk.  Forget the kiosk, here you'll find a beautiful 1,500 sq ft boutique of wonderland.  After ten years of the frigid cold of the Union Square outdoors Lola set her stars onto this cozy Soho boutique. 

Lola Star newsletter says:
She set her sights on finding a new holiday alternative to the Union Square Holiday Gift Market! As fate would have it, We are thrilled to have found a spectacular new space to house our holiday wonderland! It is much much bigger and much warmer than our little booth! It is the beginning of a brand new holiday Soho adventure!!

For the last decade, determined fashionistas have been making the nearly hour long pilgrimage to Lola Star Souvenir Boutique to indulge in the whimsical retail offerings of Dianna Carlin, a k a Lola. Now, a version of that Coney Island institution can be found in SoHo.

Lola Star will be returning to the Coney Island boardwalk in the future.  Hopefully, next season.  Last month All of the Coney Island boardwalk businesses except Lola Star and Nathan's were terminated by the new Amusement operators of Luna Park who were given that parcel on the boardwalk to operate in the 10 year contract with the city.  But Lola Star will still be in Coney Island.  You can find her store in the Stillwell Subway Station on Stillwell and Surf Avenues.  However, you won't find the outlet at the Dreamland Roller Rink.  Unfortunately, the landlords of the Childs Building on the Boardwalk have decided not to bring back the Roller Skating for a third season.  But you can't complain...Lola Star is still everywhere!
