Lisa Sabin-Wilson has launched Allure Themes, a new WordPress themes shop made especially for women. While I wouldn’t go as far as to say Allure is the only WordPress theme shop designed for women (there are a lot of theme shops, after all) I can comfortably say Allure is the highest profile, at this point.
The shop launch marks the second collaboration between Sabin-Wilson and Cory Miller of iThemes. Sabin-Wilson described the development of Allure Themes in the official launch post, including how it was first announced just a couple of months ago at WordCamp Phoenix.
I walked into Phoenix announcing Allure and promoting the heck out of it, without one single theme to show for it. Clearly, I had my work cut out for me once I returned home from my trip to Phoenix!
I have been at the game of designing WordPress themes for a long time now – since 2003, actually. That’s eight years – – which, I think, in internet-speak means: she’s ancient!
The new shop currently includes six WordPress themes with a feminine appeal. Themes are available via three different memberships of different lengths of time which include access to all their themes: two months for $75, three months for $100, or $150 for six months.
After giving Lisa such a hard time at WordCamp Phoenix, I can’t very well not recommend checking out her new themes. I couldn’t be happier that she now has a theme shop to go along with her business cards and iPad case!
