Here at Dandelions we are so proud that owner, Shirley Lyons, was just named the Woman Business Leader of the Year for 2011 by the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce.  At a luncheon on Wednesday, attended by well over 200 people, Shirley and the other 2 finalists for the award were honored for their service to the community.

Shirley’s long-term commitment to both her industry and her community are inspiring to all who know her. She started Dandelions from a small booth at the then-just-emerging Saturday Market in 1974 and has built it into one of the top 10% florists in the United States. Thank you, Eugene Chamber of Commerce, for recognizing the hard work and dedication Shirley has shown.
