little larks founder: Caroline Dunne


family and friends 

Many businesses these days talk about founders, at little larks we talk about family and friends.

This means everything to Caroline. It’s how this special brand came to be - little larks started with a chat around a kitchen table. Caroline's sister-in-law showed her some dresses she had bought in France for her own daughters – beautiful, traditional clothing. Caroline realised then, there just weren’t those kinds of options in Ireland. It was as simple as that, a mum disappointed by the lack of real children’s clothes out there. And right then and there, we turned that conversation into an idea - into a new choice for parents who value quality over quantity.

Caroline’s passion for design, styling, selecting and sourcing combined with a flair for relationship management & branding was the perfect mix to start up a Childrenswear brand. Every name, colour, font ,design carefully considered along the way. That's her mission: to listen to her customers and provide a brand that both children & parents will love . 

While those individual talents are shaping her business, it’s her belief that drives her brand forward. She is a mum to 3 children.  She also wants to see her children run and play and enjoy being kids without anything getting in the way. Caroline understands what her customers want and need from children’s clothes and is passionate about providing it.
