Sleepwear that makes a woman feel confidently comfortable.
In early 2012, Ashley Merrill glanced at herself in the mirror on her way to bed wearing her husband's oversized t-shirt and boxer briefs. She was suddenly aware of her careless sleepwear and how little her reflection resembled who she wanted to be. This realization sent her on a mission to find comfortable, flattering sleepwear but her only choices were uncomfortable, sexy lingerie or frumpy, traditional PJ's. The sleepwear options available didn’t match the woman Ashley wanted to be, an effortlessly cool, confident, and comfortable woman.
Ashley Merrill launched Lunya in 2014 with a clear conviction that women’s sleepwear was overdue for a fresh, modern perspective. She was a business leader with no clothing industry experience, but in October of 2012, she decided to take a leap and fulfill her longtime dream of becoming an entrepreneur.
Merrill founded Lunya after launching and managing online lifestyle destination Momtastic, for Evolve Media. From 2007-2010, Merrill was Director of Business Development for Atomic Online and prior to that an analyst with an LA based Venture Capital Company. She received her undergraduate and MBA degrees from UCLA. Ashley Merrill lives in Santa Monica with her husband Marc, her son Linken, and daughter Vesper.
