BOOK A PRIVATE PERMANENT JEWELRY PARTY IN CHICAGO
LINK x LOU is not only a jewelry brand, it’s an experience. When you invite us to your party, we bring the experience to you, in the comfort of your own home. We thrive on special occasions, but a girls’ night is just as important to us as the big day. Regardless of the reason, an event with LINK x LOU is always a celebration.
The beauty of a private party is intimacy. We get to know you & your people in your true environment while providing something totally unique & fun. Parties require a minimum of five guests making a purchase. The bonus? The host receives a 20% discount on all jewelry going on their body.
Adding us to your guest list comes with minimal effort on your end. All we ask for is an outlet, a table & chairs, & some good lighting, which we all know & love. This is explained more in-depth in our beloved host letter. Other than that, you party, we link. As a host, you have no reason to worry about us. We’re happy to go with your flow & serve as the main act or just an added bonus. Guests get linked one at a time & once everyone gets their gold, we’re out of your hair. Unless, of course, we’re having too much fun. This is common, but keep in mind we never link & drink ;)
Link parties are what you make of them! We love to chat with you ahead of time to hear more about your special event & how we can curate the best experience for you & your guests. You can always count on us to provide great vibes & beautiful jewelry, the rest is up to you!
LINK x LOU also partners with local businesses in a pop-up setting — find a pop-up through the "attend a pop-up" link below to get linked!
HOST A POP-UP
Pop-ups pop off. Partnering with LINK x LOU is an experience you won’t regret. As a small business, we are always eager to collaborate with other brands to create hype. Whether female-founded, climate-positive or loved locally, client crossover is inevitable. We pop up with pride & are happy to represent you & your brand just as much as our own. The pop-up side of our business revolves around event efficiency & big reach in a condensed amount of time.
By lending us space in your shop, salon, or studio, we maximize our impact by bringing new & recurring faces in the door. The pop-up version of the Link experience is short & sweet, but just as special as a private party. Appointments are booked in 15-30-minute intervals, allowing ample time for the linker to guide guests through size, fit & the hardest part, picking their chain. This gives the linkee a taste of the full LxL experience & extends an invite for private parties or future pop-ups. It’s perfect for the on-the-go gal or guy who is interested in getting Linked & needs to witness the magic before committing to a party or becoming a repeat pop-up goer.
Keep in mind, this is not our first rodeo. We have perfected the pop-up adventure & know how to draw a crowd. All we need from you is a small spot in your shop to make ours for the day or a handful of chosen hours. The rest comes naturally! Our partnerships are curated based on ethical ethos, clientele, & most importantly, the confidence that we will deliver a memorable experience. After all, permanent jewelry is meant to last. We care about the relationship we’re building with you just as much as the person sitting in our chair, so the more we can collaborate, the better. Let's link up!
THE LINK X LOU EXPERIENCE
MEET OUR CHICAGO LINKERS
LINDSAY KATE (LK) HANZ
LK, more formally known as Lindsay Kate, is a midwest gal who loves the mountains and lives for the water. She recently returned to her Chicago roots, fulfilling her dream of being a city girl. LK lives her best life when in the company of red wine and truffle fries - can we get an amen? She is an enneagram 2w3 with a passion for people and personal development. Outside of LxL, LK works for Mirror by lululemon as the Mid Atlantic MIRROR Integration Market Manager. She finds herself constantly asking, “why not,” which shines true through her adventurous spirit and diving into new challenges. Once LK has an idea, she’ll move heaven and earth to make it a reality. She is most fulfilled when she is able to witness others succeed and realize their full potential.
Some of LK’s favorite things about living in Chicago? She loves walking her micro golden doodle puppy through the city and spending time by the water. LK makes it her mission to uncover a new coffee shop, cocktail bar, and restaurant every week. Sundays always involve trying a new pizza spot. Chicago sure does know how to make good ‘za! As a midwest city, it’s humble and approachable yet still thriving and expansive. There are endless places to discover and people to meet.
LK loves Linking because she gets to experience people and witness them in a moment of awe and excitement. Her mission is to grow LxL Chicago to unimaginable heights. She feels so passionate about connecting to people and business in Chicago, understanding what makes them unique, and how they contribute to the character of the city. The best part about the permanent jewelry? It’s sweatproof! She is passionate about fitness and wellness, so she loves that she can swim in Lake Michigan with her Links on and it will endure the sweatiest of workouts. For LK, it’s the perfect intersection of her core values: connection, courage, adventure, strength, resiliency. LINK x LOU embodies what she stands for.
Fun fact: She is convinced her spirit animal is her dog Scout. According to LK, they are the same person. Cuddly, needy, empathetic, adventurous, and curious, plus, she eats mac n’ cheese at least two times a week without fail!

Her current passion project outside of the boutique fitness world & LINK x LOU is rebranding her real estate career. Kiley is currently a residential real estate broker in both Austin & Chicago.
