Retail Spotlight: Sugarillashop

The women behind Sugarillashop share a passion for fashion. For several years, they talked about the idea of launching an online store in hopes of sharing their love of chic, sophisticated styles from names like Naven, Greylin, Mink Pink, and Parker with like-minded shoppers. But the technical details of such an endeavor were intimidating. That is, until they found LightCMS.

Prior to launching its online storefront, the team considered platforms like WordPress before deciding on LightCMS. Their decision was based on several recommendations as well as LightCMS’s balance of ease of use with capabilities for order management, inventory and customer management, and a streamlined, secure shopping cart that integrates with such leading payment processors as, Stripe and PayPal.

Working with the LightCMS professional services team, Sugarillashop was launched in the Summer of 2013 on the LightCMS content management system platform and has grown into a beautifully-styled site that offers chic and edgy apparel along with everything trending in the world of fashion. Since then, it’s been a breeze for the two non-technical users to add new product content and images as the collection has grown to well over 500 SKUs.

“We’re adding new products almost daily and the site keeps getting bigger. LightCMS is very user-friendly and we never feel limited in what we can do,” said Stephanie Gonce, founder and owner of Sugarillashop.

With a solid foundation on LightCMS, the Sugarillashop team is confident that they will continue to grow and bring what once seemed like a pipe dream to fruition. “We are not worried about LightCMS’s ability to grow with us at all because it’s always on the cutting edge and provides us with everything we need even before we know we need it.”
