With over fifteen years in the apparel industry, Angela Lanahan has been a Designer and Design Director at major players such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Foxhead, Inc., and Skechers USA. She’s elevated brands, launched new, innovative products, and traveled the globe for research and development.
In 2014, Angela's little girl, Finley, began developing health problems. The stress of 14-hour work days, paired with sleepless nights, caring for her daughter, took its toll. After Finley’s successful surgery, Angela realized she couldn’t juggle the unrealistic demands of her career and still be there for her family.
She took a leap of faith and quit.
Chocolate Milke was founded in 2015, funded by the Lanahan’s life savings. Inspired by her daughter, she set out to create premium, hand-crafted items that celebrate the bond between mother and child.
The name Chocolate Milke is a tribute to the special treat Angela’s mom would make her; comforting and special, but something you can enjoy daily.
Made with careful design and detailed execution, our leggings are designed for the needs and comfort of a mom. They have a mid-rise waistband, which works great for post-partum tummies, and an on-seam pocket that fits your car key (or a pacifier!). The flat-lock seaming means you can exercise in them and feel secure and comfortable.
