The Bronze Lily started as a one-woman operation and has quickly expanded over the past 5 years into a well-rounded, boutique salon offering beauty, peace, and excellence in a multitude of services.
Larae started The Bronze Lily back in 2013, only one year after graduating high-school, and after working for a local tanning salon between her college courses at USF St. Pete. The corporate world took Larae on a different path; however, she never put down her spray tan machine.
Thus, her calling and passion for all things sunless returned her back to her spray tanning business in 2019. With business in full swing and a license in clinical skincare, enter a 3-year-old French bulldog, who needed a new home and mommy.
Lily has become the apple of Larae's eye and settled into her new major role as the "Lily" of the business ~ fitting with her white fur and bronze little spots all over.
As her clientele grew, she was able to add on two full-time artists, Emma (with almost 9 years of spray tanning experience) and Abby (with experience spray tanning from California).
At the end of 2022, she gave Lily a sister Frenchie, Lula-Pi, to join The Bronze Lily family! Schedule your appointment today to meet our amazing Lilies and our Frenchie work companions!
WHICH CAME FIRST “LILY” OR “THE BRONZE LILY”?
Fun fact about our logo, the font used in "Lily" is not computer generated; but Larae's own handwriting itself!
We believe this adds the most personal touch possible - demonstrating to her clients her personal touch and passion to her brand and work.
