BOOK A PRIVATE PARTY

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!

NATALIE O'DWYER
Natalie grew up in Bakersfield, CA surrounded by her large Italian family. She completed her undergrad degree at Cal State University Long Beach where she ran track & field, & majored in Consumer Affairs. As a student, Natalie started her career in athletic event management. She loved working closely with sports but wanted to go down a bit of a different path in the industry. Competing in college, Natalie became obsessed with how the footwear,apparel & equipment that she used every day were created. This curiosity led her to pursue a Master’s Degree in Sports Product Management from the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business, which brought her to Portland, OR.

Natalie has been in Portland since 2019 & currently works as a Research Assistant in the Nike Sports Research Lab. Her goal is to combine her passions, creativity & innovation to bring unique & memorable experiences to consumers & new athletes. Whether through events, the feeling you get when you open a brand new pair of running shoes or getting Linked for the first time. Natalie enjoys snowboarding, paddle boarding, riding her bike, creating new healthy meals & unhealthy desserts to balance it out, U-pick farms during the summer to fuel her berry obsession, & finding places to explore all over the PNW.

Natalie’s favorite things about Portland are the people, amazing food, & the passion & creativity that flows throughout the city. Being an hour away from the coast & an hour from the mountains is an added bonus. Natalie loves to bake & cook & she generously shares her recipes with friends & family. She’s also a huge fan of volunteering & giving back to the community. During the summer, which is track & field championship season, you can find Natalie at a track just about every other weekend!

Why LxL?The best thing about permanent jewelry is that you don’t have to think about it! Natalie was constantly forgetting jewelry when she was running out of the house. If she ever did have to take her jewelry off, she would usually end up misplacing the pieces. It’s simple for Natalie: if I can't take it off, I can't lose it. Hence why she was immediately obsessed with permanent jewelry! Natalie loves to bring people together, & create unique experiences & memories. Such a simple piece of jewelry can hold so much meaning & she can't wait to share this with the PDX community!
