Meet the Team
Hello Holiday was started by Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik and Megan Hunt in 2012 to promote the work of independent designers, artists, activists, and uncommon aesthetics. Our showroom, opened in 2014, serves as the home base for Hello Holiday operations as well as a hub for community events, workshops, and pop-ups. We're at 5008 Underwood Avenue in Omaha and open 11-7 Monday through Saturday, and 12-5 on Sundays.
We hire local, support local makers, and we are avid supporters and builders of the Midwest startup community. We engage new entrepreneurs with mentoring, teach classes through local business accelerators, and have taken the lead in promoting and supporting local independent designers. We offer distribution and support to small designers in seven countries, and we reinvest the revenue from our online sales all over the world into our community. We believe in “building where you are,” and our enthusiasm for developing Omaha’s young creative class by offering jobs, paid internships, and mentorship is a cornerstone of our company’s ethos. Hello Holiday is an online boutique inspired by designers, artists, activists, and the women we want to become.
