I ordered flowers for my sister when she had to come to town or a work trip. I arranged with the front desk of her hotel and the florist for the flowers to be delivered to her room prior to her arrival. The bouquet was gorgeous, much bigger than I anticipated based on the price point we agreed to (under $50 with tax and delivery) and was flawless in execution. I requested something cheerful and she delivered.I would highly recommend this shop based on my experience. More...

I needed to get a big and beautiful graduation bouquet for my sister and my mom recommended me to come to this place. Apparently it's well known in the Chinese community and literally the only place that everyone uses for funeral flowers because they're done so beautifully and in a specific matter for the Chinese community. They accept cash/credit and you have an option of either picking up the flowers IRL or having them delivered for a fee. It's literally right off of Elmo Street and I recommend parking by Lot 8, since it's just a 2 min walk from there. The guy at the front desk was so helpful! I honestly had no idea what I wanted except for cute and colorful and he gave me suggestions. They ask what your budget is, and be aware that they might just go straight for your budget max. Mine was $200 and he straight up wrote 200 for the cost. He explained that the cost came from the use of premiums flowers and it would be the large size that I wanted. He also gave me advice on keeping the flowers fresh since I needed to hide them for overnight. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase, tho it wasn't what I expected at $200, probably worth more around $150-175. (Some of the flowers are slightly browned) More...

Based on other recommendations here, I chose LuLu to help me congratulate an accomplishment from afar.  The flowers arrived exactly when I had hoped.  I immediately received a text saying "Thank you for the gorgeous flowers!!  What a way to start a Wednesday. They are truly stunning"So thanks LuLu for helping me celebrate someone from afar.  I highly recommend your work. More...

Called Jim and asked him to send the best and most fresh and most beautiful flowers he had to my dear friend visiting from Maui. Do you know how hard it is to impress someone from Maui with flowers Well Jim did it!   In fact, I had them sent to the hotel and after five days when she checked out she left them in the lobby for the rest of the guests to enjoy!!

Wonderful florist. My sweet husband sends me beautiful arrangements and has used Lulu on a couple occasions, compared to the other florists in the area- they are the best. Their flowers are always fresh, beautiful and last so long. I've used them myself on several occasions including (unfortunately) a funeral where we sent an arrangement. The florist sent me a text when the flowers were delivered which I thought was very nice of them to do. Use this florist, you will not be disappointed. More...

Our family has been going to Lulu's for many years. We chose them to do our wedding flowers last year, and they were gorgeous, fresh, colorful, and even better than what I pictured. Last week I asked them to deliver flowers to my husband's office for his birthday, and I didn't even have to specify what flowers....I just asked for colorful, nothing with a strong smell, and a balloon. I got more than my money's worth. They made a beautiful, huge arrangement, and he was very happy with them! This is by far the best florist in the area. More...

I found LuLu here on Yelp and called them for a Bethesda delivery (I live in Missouri). The flowers were lovely and joyous, and my friend was effusive in her praise of the bouquet. I'm so glad to have called LuLu!

If I could give 10 stars, I certainly would!  Lulu went above and beyond what I ordered and brought great JOY to my friend and her family.  Fresh arrangement, attention to detail, stunning combination of flowers/greenery, and you can tell it was made with love.It is VERY difficult these days to find businesses who take great pride in their work and who put their customers' wishes first.  Lulu did all this and more.  I was thrilled to find a florist with integrity and a heart.Jim is a great ambassador for Lulu and I am grateful for his outstanding service.I am a customer for life!

Thank you for responding and taking my order. I am from NYC and called to order an arrangement for same day delivery to a friend of mine who lives 10 min away from your shop. Jim was kind, courteous and very helpful. Your florist shop did not come up in google search, as I had called another local florist prior who didn't bothered to take the time for my order.  Customer service is very important and I appreciate the courtesy that Jim provided. Thanks again!! More...

Absolutely amazing experience from beginning to end at LuLu Florist!!!After having a remarkably poor experience with another local Bethesda Florist this past Thursday May 10, 2018 (by none other than one of the owners) I happened upon LuLu Florist just down the road.  After further searching for local shops and and reading about LuLu Florist, I placed a quick phone call to inquire if they might be able to assist with a very simple (last minute) Mother's Day arrangement for my boss's mother.  The gentleman on the phone was kind and welcoming, and said I should certainly come on by, he would be happy to help figure something out.  Jim, the gentleman I spoke with via phone, greeted me in his shop moments later, helping me to decide on an elegant arrangement, in a modern style cube vase, as I had hoped for.  Jim is efficient, considerate and caring; I was in and out in less than 10mins.  He accommodated my price max and the arrangement was ready for pickup the following day, on Friday (just in time for Mother's Day Weekend.)  THANK YOU Jim and THANK YOU to your wonderful team of florists whom provided exceptional customer service and accommodated my simple (albeit last minute request) with a stellar custom flower arrangement.  Despite being on the cusp of Mother's Day Weekend, LuLu Florist graciously created this beautiful floral arrangement.  My enlightenment as it relates to local florists in Bethesda: LuLu Florist is THE FLORIST to visit for any and all floral needs (small, large, last minute or advance.)  Looking forward to placing all of our future floral orders with LuLu's for both personal and business needs alike.

Great florist. Called today for same day delivery. The gentleman who answered the phone was courteous and helped me make a selection. Wife loved what she received and the florist called back after delivery confirming that the arrangement was delivered. That is top notch customer service. Very happy with Lulu Florist. Thank you!

Lulu has a friendly, knowledgeable staff along with beautiful floral arrangements.  They are professionals offering great service - they know exactly what they're doing. Their floral arrangements for my mother were so lush, beautiful, fresh and vibrant.  Lulu's flowers really made a fantastic statement and I really appreciate the flawless service they provided.  I would highly recommend Lulu for great flowers and service.  *Please note they have expertise and knowledge on Chinese floral traditions for special events.

Completed my order on line - called the store to make sure they had what I wanted - they did.  Jason (I think) was so nice on the phone - he even called me back to say that they had delivered already!  Same Day!

The flower arrangement that Lulu made for my daughter's 24th birthday was the most spectacular that she received!! Teresa was extremely helpful on the phone and the flowers arrived as requested (before 12) noon on her birthday. All flowers were very fresh and it was quite an impressive bouquet!!  THANK YOU for making her birthday so special!!  Other people sent flowers, but nothing compared to this personal arrangement.  I would definitely recommend Lulu Florist and I will be using them in the future!

Bouquet was fresh and huge just like in the pictures on their website. (Unlike Bell's tiny arrangements!)3.communication with Davy the florist was easy, he's a real perfectionist!Cons:1. Price was a bit on the higher side but that's normal for the Bethesda area...I will use their service again with hesitation! More...

Wow!! I ordered flowers today and needed them delivered today. I had to add extra instructions after the order was placed and they were followed like they said they would. Not only were the flowers delivered very quickly but the arrangement was exactly like pictured on the website and absolutely gorgeous!!  Thank you Lulu Florist! More...

WOW is all I have to say. My significant other has ordered me two arrangements from here and they were exquisite. This is coming from someone who worked at a florist for 5 years. I KNOW arrangements and flowers and LULU does an amazing job. Truly gorgeous flowers and they hold up so nicely. Thank you for your constant WOW factor. More...

this is my second time using Lulu.  The service was good the first time but this second time they blew me away.  I waited until the last minute to send some roses for Valentine's Day.  Lulu was of course booked up and usually they don't go into the district.  They made a special trip for me.  They are the best!

Wonderful florists.  I ordered from Texas by phone for a delivery in Bethesda.  The flowers arrived very quickly - with in a matter of a few hours (very surprising!) - and they are gorgeous.  My friend sent me two photographs ... She was so pleased.   Highly recommend! More...

The customer service from LuLu's is incredible. After selecting LuLu's based on a quick google search for a florist near Walter Reed, I ordered online with LuLu Florist not expecting anything after clicking submit payment. To my surprise, they gave me a call to discuss the order, and delivery instructions. They assured me they would figure out the logistics of the hospital as I was unable to give them specifics of which building.  I got a call about an hour later again from LuLu's not only confirming the delivery, but a personal update on the patient. I was overwhelmed, especially since it was good news!  I do not know the name of the man who delivered the flowers, but this was the best customer service I have EVER received.  I can't say enough good things, and I hope LuLu reads this and knows how grateful I am for that confirmation phone call which turned my day around!

I've had several flower delivers over the past few years from LuLu's, and they've always done a fantastic job. The flowers have always arrived when expected, the arrangements are beautiful, and the delivery people have always been friendly. They also have called and left me a message to let me know the flowers were delivered and where they left them, which was nice given that I live in an apartment building and don't always get package notifications. I would definitely use this florist for any flower needs in the area. Two thumbs up! More...

I was very impressed with the service of this flower shop. I ordered flowers for someone in the hospital, and someone from Lulu's called and left a message to tell me that they had delivered the flowers and saw the recipient walking down the hall so they thought he may be feeling better. That was so far away above and beyond I will certainly use them again. More...

I could not be more pleased than with this shop! And I am a tough customer always looking for perfection. I asked for a dozen long stemmed pink roses in a box and if I could have the vase wrapped separately. No problem! Can you take a picture and email to me? No problem! They looked so gorgeous. Layed out so neatly in a white box and a big pink bow on top. I was so thrilled. Security wouldn't let them in at NRC so they called my daughter to arrange delivery to her home! Then they called me to let me know. Perfect!!! I highly recommend this little shop if you want to be pleased. Thank you LuLu and Liz. More...

I've used this florist on two occasions.  Both times, I was genuinely impressed with the timeliness of the delivery, their communication and attention to detail.  LuLu takes the additional steps of confirming the order directly, and then confirming each delivery.  All in all, their service is very much at a personal level and definitely appreciated.This most recent time, I wanted to include an extra gift to mark an anniversary.  LuLu Florist was most accommodating and accepted the gift delivery in order to include it with their flower delivery.  It worked perfectly, so the recipient got the gift and flowers together.  This is an extra level of service that wasn't expected and shows just how much they are willing to go above and beyond.  It definitely makes me a satisfied (and impressed) customer.Outstanding! I will definitely be using this company again.  Thanks! More...

I was the happy recipient of a lovely birthday bouquet .  The delivery person phoned me to tell me the arrangement had been set by the front door -- I was actually home but didn't hear the knock as I usually have earphones in.  I appreciated this extra degree of care offered by the delivery person.  The flowers were fresh and beautifully arranged and have lasted a long time.  I wouldn't hesitate to order from this florist or recommend them as it's clear they go the extra mile to put a smile on a customer's face.

My daughter ordered a hydrangea for my 60th birthday and because of a computer glitch Lulu Florist didn't get the order till one week later. They called me several times to correct the situation but I was away and didn't pick up the messages till this weekend. They said that not only did they want to deliver the hydrangea but also a mother's day bouquet -- gratis. Within one hour there came a knock on my door and a lovely gentleman sang happy birthday and presented me with a most robust and beautiful pink hydrangea, and a huge floral bouquet filled with lilies, roses, tulips, daffodils, hydrangea, chrysanthemum, and snapdragons. Yes. It was that big. I expected a token bouquet but it far exceeded my expectations both in the delivery, the presentation, the size, and the freshness and beauty of the flowers themselves. Thank you Lulu, for helping me relive my birthday and for ushering in mothers day in elegant style. Your generosity and kindness aren't easily found in the commercial flower business these days, and your flowers are fresh and gorgeous. With much appreciation, I am a customer for life! More...

I'm such a huge fan of Lulu's. We had a great experience when they did our wedding flowers. We had a consultation with Liz, who asked great questions and listened to our vision for our wedding. We received a written quote that was within our budget. We had scavenged rustic antique bottles from various places, and she really liked the idea. We delivered the bottles a week before the wedding, and the arrangements they did far exceeded our expectations. They were all unique and beautiful, and the flowers were very fresh. The bouquets and boutonnieres were also gorgeous. Our colors were lavender, green and cream, and the variety of flowers they used all coordinated perfectly. We could not have asked for a better florist, and I highly recommend them. My recent purchase of a birthday arrangement for my husband arrived less than two hours after I called to order them, and I received a call from Lulu letting me know that they had been delivered. The arrangement was beautiful, and again, much more than I would have gotten anywhere else. We have gotten great service and beautiful flowers from Lulu, and won't use anyone else. More...

I called Lulu Florist with a specific request for a buffet table centerpiece for a party in my home. I picked up the arrangement from their shop, and they had it carefully packed for safe transport in my car. They created a stunning arrangement with orchids, roses, and hydrangeas, and kept it within my budget. The tall glass vase was lined with large, tropical leaves for an elegant effect. Some of our guests commented on the beautiful flowers, and asked which florist I used. I have been careful to keep the water level topped off, and more than a week later, most of the flowers are holding up and still look good enough to display. I would not hesitate to recommend Lulu Florist. More...

Lulu Florist did an amazing job for the flowers for my mother's funeral.  Apparently, if you are Chinese, Lulu is the ONLY game in town for producing beautiful flowers with Chinese ribbons and arrangements suitable for Chinese customs.  The floral arrangements were incredibly beautiful and they can do extremely large arrangements, wreaths, and spreads, in addition to regular bouquets.  I don't know the pricing, but the care and arrangement they did was amazing. 10 stars.

I'm thrilled I found this place. My mother is a florist, so I'm picky when it comes to getting my wife flowers on special occasions (shit, I'm that guy). Flowers looked great, well put together, no gaps and smelled great. Ordering on the phone was easy. I'll be back again soon. More...

We used Lulu for our wedding. What little interaction I had with the staff was very pleasant. They do everything a florist traditionally does, events, weddings, arrangements, special occasions, funerals etc. The shop also has last minute gift items. I've ordered on a few special ocassions, and have found them to be extremely fun, creative, and her arrangements are pure art in motion. More...

Walked in on Valentine's Day and immediately drowned in a wave of cynicism... because everything was so damned pretty.Bah humbug.But really: clean and well-lit shop tucked into the business strip on the corner of Woodmont and St Elmo. The fact that my allergies didn't explode my face on first pass is a good thing. Super friendly service despite the definite bustle of the holiday, lots of fresh flowers arranged in buckets inside and out. The owners were so easy to work with when I asked for something not listed on their website (flower petals in a specific volume and shades). Eyeballing the bamboo arrangement as a belated CNY present to myself! More...

Walked into the store on a Friday afternoon looking to buy a dozen roses for an anniversary gift. I was quickly asked what I wanted, and within a few minutes they had given me 12 huge red roses (each flower about the size of a tennis ball). I had never bought a nice bouquet at a place besides a grocery store before, so I wasn't sure what it would cost, but the flowers were definitely worth the price. I received compliments from people I walked by on the street on the way home (as well as one man pushing a stroller telling his little girl that "That was how you got here" and pointing at the roses). My girlfriend loved them, and they've lasted for over a week, still looking great. More...

Called Lulu's to order a flower arrangement for a recovering coworker.   Because he was in intensive care, he could not receive flowers.  Lulu's actually called the hospital daily to find out when he was out of intensive care and delivered a beautiful arrangement.  Each flower was so unique and the arrangement was spectacular.  I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend this florist.

My coworker was injured in a car accident this past weekend and I wanted to send her flowers while she's out of the office. Of course, the first day I could send flowers was today -- the day before Valentine's Day. Whereas last year I tried to send V-Day flowers to someone through a major floral company (who never even delivered), this time I called up Lulu after reading the Yelp reviews. I told them my price, the occasion (get well), and what I wanted (unusual arrangement with yellow flowers) and asked if they could deliver same-day. They delivered around 3:30 and my coworker loves them. She sent me a picture and they're exactly what I asked for. I'm very impressed with the work, especially given the proximity to the biggest flower-sending day of the year! Thank you! More...

I wanted a super special flower arrangement for my mother's birthday, but I live in California.  I almost used one of the generic online flower services (teleflora, etc), then read Yelp reviews of Lulu.  I'm so glad I did -- the Lulu people were really accommodating in talking me through the choices in my price range.  End result: they delivered a flower arrangement on my mother's birthday that was gorgeous & customized to her specific flower preferences.

This is one of those cute boutique flower shops that you see in the movies that you want to stop by whenever you're in the area just to chat with the friendly owners and pick-up whichever flowers they recommend, for no special occasion, just because it's a tuesday.My whimsical trips did expand further.. We ordered flowers for my sister's wedding and they were nothing short of fabulous, and affordable too. I also brought my mom here to pick up flowers for a funeral and they recommended the perfect one. So they're flexible, creative, will give you an opinion if you have no clue, accommodating if you need it, and just really nice people that you don't get to meet very often anymore.. More...

By far the most entertaining experience I've had at a florist in my life.  I was greeted as if I were a long lost family member as soon as I entered the lively and cluttered store on a rainy November evening in search of some tulips for the gf.  The smiling faces, colorful fresh flowers, constant hustle-and-bustle of pruning and arranging and just the LIFE of the place was a stark contrast to the cold street outside.  The husband and wife owner duo of Mr. and Mrs. Lee were an absolute delight and riot - Mrs. Lee playing the part of the stern but knowledgeable Asian matron to perfection, while Mr. Lee was her gregarious and jovial foil, often making hilarious and ridiculous statements to me under his breath (or at the top of his lungs) in a mix of Mandarin and English ("Chinglish") while he helped me pick out my flowers.Our conversation ranged from:* the best flowers for an amorous result ("colorful lilies make women want to kiss!")* an incredible recommendation, considering extra flowers = extra $$$ for the store, of less sometimes being more when it comes to flowers ("you're not trying to build a forest!")* a warning that certain flower pollens will stain clothes ("if you mess up her dress, she will not want to kiss!")* a five minute discourse from Mr. Lee on why Korean men tend to beat their wives and why Chinese husbands get walked all over by their spouses (this part was all in Mandarin and out of earshot of Mrs. Lee)Needless to say, my stomach hurt from laughing by the time I had settled on my flowers.  Ended up walking out with a bunch of gorgeous orange lilies and yellow daisies (which lasted almost a week and a half!) at a very affordable price. I'll be back for both the flowers and the fun. More...
