Erin is the owner of Lois Pearl, which began as a line of handmade clothing for girls in her basement. It is named after Erin’s grandmother Pearl, who started their family farm in Yorktown, and Lois, who owned a flower shop just down the road from the boutiques’ location.

Lois Pearl, began as a line of handmade clothing for girls in Erin's basement. Upon moving back to her hometown of Yorktown, she moved into the Lois Pearl space on Smith Street, and set it up as a sewing studio. As her brand grew, residents began requesting appointments and the boutique was born. Prior to “stumbling into” Lois Pearl, Erin graduated with degrees in Agricultural Economics from Purdue and International Agricultural Economics at the University of Illinois. Erin resides in Yorktown with her two children Nate and Evy, and husband Matt.
