Founded by Vannpira Winters, a Dublin native, who has been a promoter of erotic brands and lingerie for several years, Lace & Tassels officially launched in late 2020 during Lockdown 2.0.
Previously an ambassador for one of the UK’s biggest erotic retail chains, Vannpira has spent over a decade visiting erotic boutiques around Europe. This unplanned market research became the inspiration for Lace & Tassels, as Vannpira realised there was a gap in the Irish market - a gap for an emporium that understood women* and put them first!
Her aim is to create a safe, sex positive space for women to explore their sexuality, to learn, share and create connections with other like-minded individuals without shame, stigma or objectification.
As a store, our aim is to offer sleek and sophisticated pleasure products – toys, accessories, apparel, lingerie and cosmetics, which we ourselves have tried, tested and approved. Our Facebook community have a huge influence on this - The Lace & Tassels Lounge is a space where over 700 women, of all ages and backgrounds, come to connect, share experiences, review products and make new friends. Some even sign up to become our official product testers here!
In addition to the above, we also hold workshops, host virtual parties and offer concierge (personal shopping) services. Our at home parties, and in person events, are temporarily on hold.
*While we are a brand focused on female pleasure, we welcome every body over the age of 18, of every gender and sexuality.
