About Us

Welcome to Zinnia Cain!

 

(My family after my son's hockey game.)

It all began with a simple idea: to offer a handpicked selection of clothing and accessories that perfectly suit your awesome life. Our ultimate goal? To make you look and feel like the fabulous person you are, while giving you a shopping experience filled with joy.

At the core of our mission lies a belief in the power of small acts. Small actions together make huge impacts. That's why I am excited to share that I have committed to donating 1% of every purchase from Zinnia Cain to incredible charitable organizations that are making a difference in the lives of women and children.

By indulging in your favorite fashion finds, you're not just adorning your life with beauty; you're also contributing to causes that create meaningful impact. Your support allows us to spread love, hope, and support to those who need it most. More on the organizations we support below! 

Our name, Zinnia Cain, holds a special place in my heart. Inspired by my love for the zinnia flower, a symbol of joy and resilience, as well as my beloved grandpa, Marion Cain. Zinnias effortlessly bloom in stunning colors and attract graceful butterflies and hummingbirds. Just like zinnias, we aim to bring a bit of joy. Early in life, my grandfather gave me the confidence to set goals high and know that I have the power to achieve them. I want you to feel inspired in the same way. 

Let me share a bit about my own recent journey. In my forties, I embarked on a path of change, saying farewell to a finance executive role at a large company, taking time to spend with my family, and now launching Zinnia Cain. In the back of my mind, I've always had the desire to start my own business. I love clothes and helping women feel great about themselves. I also want to create a business that has a positive impact on our broader communities.  Zinnia Cain brings all these things together.  I am incredibly excited about this new venture. 

Spending time with my husband and my 17-year-old son bring me the most joy. Traveling to new places, exploring new cuisines, growing my yoga practice, and spending time in the great outdoors are some of my favorite activities.

I welcome you to join me on this journey. Now, let's delve into the incredible organizations your purchases will support. To amplify our impact, 1% of net purchases will be divided between two remarkable organizations: No Kid Hungry and Dress for Success. With every shopping choice you make, you'll be making a difference in the lives of others.

No child should go hungry in America. But millions of kids in the United States live with hunger. 

No Kid Hungry is working to end childhood hunger in America by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. This is a problem they know how to solve. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty.

Key Action Areas for No Kid Hungry

  • No Kid Hungry works with schools, local nonprofits and elected leaders to help launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive.
  • No Kid Hungry works to eliminate any barriers that stand in the way of a child having access to food. No Kid Hungry supports programs like school breakfast, food banks and other community groups feeding kids, and push for legislation to strengthen programs like SNAP to help feed more kids.
