WE LOVE... Our Customers


When we started 15 years ago, we had one mission... To make sure that we didn't just make customers, but instead made friends. We've succeeded! In the time that we've been open, we have developed a loyal customer following of folks that we consider family. We always strive to treat others the way we would want to be treated. In doing so, folks have realized that we are so much more than just a store... We are a family, and our customers are a part of that family!

WE LOVE... Our Pets


Over the years, we've been passionate about our pets. In fact, we have taken in many sweet animals that would not otherwise have a home. The most notable of these pets are Earl, Tripod, and Mia! If you don't know who these celebrities are, you owe it come in and see why people love shopping at Lou's. More importantly, the kids love to come here with their parents because there is so much to see and experience. A big part of that is our wonderful "house" pets that we have here at Lou's!

WE LOVE... 'Unique'


Here at Lou's Flower World, you are certain to find items that you won't discover anywhere else! We seek out the most unique items and are always on the lookout for even more fun and whimsical products. This includes our plants, bushes, and trees that you won't find at the national chain hardwares stores. Looking for a unique gift? We have exactly what you are looking for... Even if you don't know quite what it is you're looking for. Come in to Lou's for a unique find today!

    The staff is exceptionally friendly! The baskets that have been made for gifts are exceptional as well. The large potted plants for my Mother-in-law’s front porch were the talk of the street!!!

    Incredible store with so much more than just flowers. Hundreds of gifts, garden art, and a whole section of vintage/shabby chic furniture as well. They have koi fish, garden pagodas and even Ginger Snap jewelry. The house kitties are great as well! You got to go and see this place! You won’t be disappointed.

    Recently moved to Wilmington and we were spending the afternoon shopping… Every girl needs to know where the best places are to shop in her new hometown, right…? We came across Lou’s and am so happy that I did. What a great find. This store has flowers, plants, tons of vintage furniture, jewelry, great gift ideas and so much more. They even have a florist on-site. I love fresh cut flowers when we have friends and family visiting so I will be back… The hubby was happy that they had great planting soil for the garden, apparently it is from NC, organic, and really good for your veggies and flowers. If you get the chance be sure to stop in, I know you will enjoy it as much as we did.

    Lou’s is an awsome place.  You always feel at home even when she was at Carolina Beach Road.  The staff is great and it is always a pleasure to see Lou as she is always smiling and I love to see her in the Spring in her straw hat. She always has such fresh flowers, plants and very unique items in her shop.  We purchased our tree from her last year and when I finally talked myself to take it out at the end of January , when I had purchased it the last week in November, it was difficult as it was still so alive and green. Lou’s is a special place and fun to go to.

    Lou’s Flower World is fantastic, especially considering the relatively short time it’s been there.  I have found unusual plants and gifts.  The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, AND they hold classes… I can only imagine what it will be like in the spring!!

    Lou and her staff are wonderful in taking care of one’s needs.  A bride’s mother called me seeking some rental items for the wedding which was to take place in about 1 1/2 weeks.  Lou made it all possible for us to obtain the rentals and the wedding was a success.   – Kindred Spirit Event Planning

    It was a few months before I went into Lou’s, and Boy! was I surprised!!  Not only are the plants healthy and beautiful, but they have all this great vintage and decorative stuff inside.  My husband and I are building a house, and we have been looking for special pieces to enhance our “coastal look.” Lou’s has it! It’s my “go-to” shop when I just want to wander around and look, even if I don’t buy every time… Thanks, Lou!

    From the moment my beau moved me to Wilmington and brought me to Lou’s I have LOVED Lou’s Diversity and feel. Truly my HAPPY place.

    Wow! I have been driving BY for a couple year’s now. Wish I’d stopped sooner. Much more than a garden shop.

    Lou’s did a wonderful job with our wedding flowers. We were so happy with all the flowers and amazed at how well they held up and how long all of them lasted. Thank you Lou’s and Mrs. Susie, it was such a pleasure working with you.
