Though she was born and raised on Philadelphia’s Main Line, Lori Jayne Bernstein spent almost every family vacation between 1978 and 1998 at the Palm Beach Polo Golf & Country Club in Wellington before her parents purchased a home on Palm Beach. She began crafting custom barrettes and hair accessories when she was 11; eventually, her girlhood hobby positioned her as Palm Beach’s go-to for fine linens, gifts, and home decor. Her retail venture, Lori Jayne Monogramming & More, stocks merchandise that can be personalized in-house through monogramming, embroidery, engraving, and printing. Outside of her two South County Road showrooms, Bernstein enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, and Barkley, their chocolate-merle cocker spaniel, as well as supporting local causes such as the Palm Beach Zoo, Oxbridge Academy, and The Promise Fund. She is also a member of the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce and serves on the board of the Palm Beach Civic Association.
