Is this getting to be a thing?

In addition to selling packs of freshly-baked Ginger Chocolate Cookies each weekend at Very Virginia Shop, I’m once again offering cookies for holiday pickup — this time for St. Patrick’s Day.

As usual, we’re talking about the fresh-baked, 100%-scratch cookies you know and love. I’m offering them by the baker’s dozen — either an assortment or a single flavor — and I’m also offering shamrock-shaped sugar cookies by the half dozen. Order online and then pick them up in historic downtown Leesburg. I’ll be packing them in bakery boxes with tissue paper and a Lola sticker, just as we did at the bakery.

Here’s some info to know:

♣ The address of Very Virginia is 16 South King Street.

♣ Pickup is from 1pm to 5pm only — so please select a pickup day when you can definitely make it into downtown Leesburg during the afternoon.

♣ My online store is a bit finicky and will act like you’ve placed a shipping order. Please ignore that: All cookie orders are for pickup only.(We’ll send an e-mail reminder to everyone who orders.)

♣ And finally, I always recommend ordering early if possible to ensure availability. I’ll be deleting the heavily booked pickup dates from the online order form as I reach capacity.

Thanks again to Very Virginia’s owner, Sola Pallotta, for enabling me to bake for Leesburg. Be sure to get other Virginia-themed gifts when you’re in her store!

Taking Pickup Orders for Valentines Week Cookies!

Great news! After the success of our Christmas season cookie sales via Very Virginia Shop, I’ve decided to once again offer cookies for pick up the same way for the week of Valentines Day.

Once again, I’m offering local pickup of Lola’s fresh-baked, from-scratch cookies, sold by the baker’s dozen and sugar cookies by the half dozen. Order online and then pick them up in historic downtown Leesburg.

You can buy a dozen of one of my popular flavors, or an assortment that includes some Valentines Day-themed sugar cookies. I’ll be packing them in bakery boxes with red tissue paper and a Lola sticker, just as we did at the bakery.

There are a few things you should know.

First, the address of Very Virginia is 16 South King Street. Second, pickup is from 1pm to 5pm only — so please select a pickup day when you can definitely make it into downtown Leesburg during the afternoon. Third, my online store is a bit finicky and will act like you’ve placed a shipping order. Please ignore that: All cookie orders are for pickup only.

(We’ll send an e-mail reminder to everyone who orders.)

And last, I recommend ordering early to ensure availability. This is important: I’ll be deleting the most popular pickup dates from the online order form as I reach capacity — so if you absolutely need a February 14th pickup, for example, now’s the time to order.

My deep thanks to Very Virginia’s owner, Sola Pallotta, for enabling me to bake for Leesburg again this season. Be sure to get other Virginia-themed gifts when you’re in her store!

Back in Downtown Leesburg

After a couple of years, Lola’s is back in historic downtown Leesburg!

Not a new bakery, alas — but our fresh-baked cookies are now available each weekend at the Very Virginia Shop.

You might remember that our little bakery once shared a building with Very Virginia: We opened our doors at the same time in 2006, with Very Virginia in the front of the pink house and Lola’s in the back.

Very Virginia’s owner Sola Pallotta has been a great supporter of Lola’s ever since. (Sola is a great supporter of everything Leesburg. Besides selling lots of local goods, she books all the music acts that make First Fridays so much fun.)

For quite a while now, Sola has wanted me to sell cookies through her store. This fall she asked again, and the timing was finally right.

So here’s the scoop: Very Virginia is located nowadays in the heart of the historic district, at 16 South King Street. Each weekend, from Friday afternoon through Sunday, it sells my trademark Ginger Chocolate Cookies and M&M Cookies, each in packs of three.

While you’re getting your Lola’s fix, I hope you’ll linger in Very Virginia. It’s a charming shop full of local flavor: Foods and merchandise from right here in Leesburg, from Loudoun County, and from Virginia more broadly. If you need a gift with some Leesburg character, it’s a terrific place to shop.

In fact, this is the perfect time of year to rediscover all the shops in our lovely downtown. Stroll around with a Lola cookie in your hand — what could be better on a fall day?
