ABOUT THE STORE
COURTNEY WASHINGTON ONLINE is the vision of its CEO Sherry Lauter and her two daughters. Sherry is a teacher, mentor, entrepreneur and most importantly, a grandmother of 11. During the last 8 years Sherry has spent a great deal of time in Jamaica, helping her husband Bob raise funds and build a brand new campus for Naz Children’s Centre. Naz is an outstanding elementary school for average learners and special needs kids. During her time in Jamaica she was introduced to the Courtney Washington brand. It quickly became a mainstay of her wardrobe. Everywhere she went women would stop her and ask her who designed her clothes and where they could buy them. So, eventually, Sherry decided to give them a beautiful place to shop the COURTNEY WASHINGTON line.

A portion of every purchase at Courtney Washington Online will go to the scholarship fund of Naz Children’s Centre.
