Business Booms for Tulsa Florists on Valentine's Day

Posted: Updated:

Though Valentine's Day means a surge in business for Tulsa florists, it also means utter havoc for Tulsa florists.

Last-minute requests for flowers from customers forced some workers at Le'Vans Flowers in Tulsa to work for 36 hours straight into today.

There were so many orders and deliveries that Mary Lee Evans, owner of Le'Vans Flowers for 50 years, joked that she was ready to retire after today.

"We're getting kind of brain dead right now," Evans said.

But Evans also emphasized the importance of local florists in an increasingly digitalized world.

"It's so important to have local florists," she said. "We've got to tell people we love them, that we are sorry they're sick or that we're sorry they lost a loved one."
