Pittsburgh Women-Owned Businesses we love

Looking for more ways to support women-owned businesses?  For women's history month we have rounded up a few of our favorite Pittsburgh food spots, retailers, and specialty services - all run by women!

Pittsburgh Women-owned Food and Drink Businesses

Black Forge Coffee

When we are brewing up new ideas, our favorite meeting spot is Black Forge Coffee House run by Ashley.  Their menu is macabre meets coffee, with metal inspired drinks and tea blends (High Priestess is my go-to).  There's something about the Pantera background tracks that help me tune into the task at hand and slay the day.  

Black Forge roasts their beans onsite in their McKee's Rocks location.  We're extra proud to carry this blend they roast exclusively for love, Pittsburgh in our stores.



Parma Sausage

We savored the news when we first learned that Parma Sausage is a women-owned business!  With a history that's four generations deep, our favorite neighbor has been serving up sausages manufactured right here Strip District since 1954.  

A year and a half ago we took over the former Parma storefront, and they moved next door to their original location.  We still giggle when folks make it all the way up to our counter and try to order sausage from us!  We love carrying their Sopressata, but always send folks next door for the full selection of their delicacies.



La Gourmandine

Oh this delicious place! From savory to sweet, La Gourmandine always satisfies. The French baguettes are outstanding, with a soft inside surrounded by a flaky, crunchy crust. Treat yourself to an eclair au choclat paired with a handful of chouquettes, and don't forget a macarons aux fruits for maximum enjoyment. 


Pittsburgh Women-owned Retail 

Perrico Plant Co

Tucked away behind a bright blue garage door in Lawrenceville, this local business is a must-know for plant lovers.  Abi curates a beautiful assortment of greenery that will thrive in your home.  She is a wealth of knowledge about how to keep your plants happy, and which ones are best to co-habitate with your furry friends. The plant mix is constantly evolving, check out what is in stock here.  Or, stop by one of our stores as we are proud to carry an assortment of plants in our stores from Perrico.

Boutique La Passarelle

For head-to-toe fashion, we love sending shoppers to our downtown neighbor Adele, owner of Boutique la Passarelle.  Browse fashion brands with European flair, and find cocktail dresses to jewelry and everything in between.  

Fresh Nostalgia

Another downtown friend right in the Cultural District is Beth, fashionista and owner of Fresh Nostalgia.  Her assortment is both trending and timeless.  Plus she offers home goods to make your space look as cute as your outfit!


Pittsburgh Women-owned Services

South Hills Power Yoga

Long before Kelly and I started love, Pittsburgh we were finding our center at South Hills Power Yoga in Dormont.  We love the intention and energy that a heated yoga session provides as a respite for both mind and body.  Check out their schedule next time you need a full body reset.


XO Salon

Natalie runs this salon just a half block away from our Mount Washington location. Not only is her team specialists at hair extensions, they are also pros with creative color. Dream up a hair crown of rainbows as long as you desire, and make everyone around you smile as you exit the salon. 



Rose Colored Creative

A picture speaks a thousand words, and we've found no better "author" than Sarah of Rose Colored Creative.  As our go-to photographer, Sarah helps us bring out the beauty of the locally sourced products we carry.  In addition to product photography, she captures weddings, fashion, and lifestyle in her shoots.
