Long Beach, CA – May 17, 2017 – Marketing Immersion announced today that it has penned deals with several licensees for their client Butter Love, owner of the Lolli and Sugar Coast brands. Lolli, an influencer brand, a fashion favorite of celebrities, bloggers and runway designers, has a huge following among teens, tweens and women.
Lolli started as a swim brand whose products have been in the specialty and upstairs market globally for almost a generation. Lolli created and is famous for their Bow Bottom design and girly, flirty, friendly, fun personality in their styles. The Lolli Swim collection has been featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition for the past 4 out of 5 years and is seen on the bodies of the glam crowd.
In 2017 Lolli entered the mass market with an incredibly successful retail program under the banner Sugar Coast by Lolli, now being promoted as an exclusive swim collection for mothers, daughters, sisters and friends at Mass Market Retailer (not sure what to put instead of Target).
Marketing Immersion announced the ACI footwear licensing deal for Lolli and Sugar Coast by Lolli footwear for both the upstairs, specialty and mass market.
ACI International has been a leading manufacturer, distributor and a marketer of men’s, women’s and children’s footwear brands for over thirty years and are footwear licensees of some of the top brands in the world.
“We were attracted to the Lolli and Sugar Coast brands because they are in a league of their own with nothing else in the market place that is comparable. Their success at Target was also attractive and compelled us to come on board.” Shared Sean Mitchell, EVP Licensing of ACI.
In addition, Marketing Immersion announced the onboarding of SBH Intimates of The Moret Group with the Lolli and Sugar Coast brands for intimate apparel, lounge and sleepwear, whose designs will embrace the fun, sunny and flirty style of Lolli.

Joseph Tobias, Vice President, SBH and The Moret Group shared, “Lolli and Sugar Coast by Lolli are both engaging brands, innocent yet flirty with an element of fun surprise. The brand and its followers are a perfect fit with SBH and The Moret Group.”
Lolli’s newly launched yummy collaboration with the “can’t get a ticket to that” Museum of Ice Cream pop up museum is now being showcased in Los Angeles California. The museum features a Lolli celebration room decked with translucent signature rainbows, neon lights and activities that capture the outdoor beach sensibility of the brand.
The Museum of Ice Cream collaboration was the brainstorm of Vy Nguyen, designer and founder of Butter Love, who has been developing programs that reinforce her brand’s girly, flirty, sweet, innocently, fun outdoor beach lifestyle since its inception. Lolli is among other delicious exhibits and unique presentations at the museum, which includes tasty samples and mouth-watering displays.
Vy Nguyen, Lolli founder and CEO shared, “I am so excited to be at the Licensing Expo and to be represented by Marketing Immersion. They get my brand as do ACI, The Moret Group and the Museum of Ice Cream. I am honored to have such creative, quality and established companies join me under the Lolli umbrella.” Nguyen also mentioned, “I am just as excited about being a finalist in the License! Global One To Watch contest. Keep your fingers crossed for us to win.” Check out Lolli at www.Ilovelolli.com where you can see her designs and images from other collaborations.
