Runs Lemon Salon
Yellow, Lime Green
Andrea Libman (Canada)
Lemon Meringue is one of Strawberry Shortcake's best friends and main characters in the series.
Current with the latest trends, when she's not working on starting her own Lemon spends her day busily working at the Lemon Salon. She loves chattering and is at her happiest when she can be with her friends.
Lemon has fair skin and bright blue eyes with pale, tea-rose lips. She has long, waist length blonde hair with her bangs brushed to the side. A small amount of hair on each side of her head is pulled into plated pigtails held by two green bows. A lemon wedge clip rests on the left side of her head. In Season 3 and 4 she sometimes wore her hair in two low braids held with her ribbons.
Lemon's normal outfit is composed of a yellow elbow-length blouse with white ruffled cuff to accent the lemon wedge design on the white fabric at her chest. Beneath it is a green and pale blue ribbon, while on each side of her torso is a lemon wedge design. Her sky blue pleat skirt features a lemon design on the right. She also wears pale gold flats with three tiny markings on each toe to resemble a lemon slice, paired with white and neon yellow leggings.
For casual outings late in the series Lemon wore a gold and white striped tank-top with a pair of pale green shorts or pants with a floral print and pale blue cuff. Her shoes would either be pale green flats or yellow sneakers with lemon designs and short white socks with pale blue lining.
Despite her sour name, Lemon is very sweet. She is kind and caring and normally very cheery and bubbly. She can be ditzy from time-to-time, but she always means well and she is very determined to do whatever she may set her sights on. She is also feminine loving things like shopping and makeup, but is always up for sports or going on a hike. She is very chatty but she never tries to hurt the feelings of others by spreading negative rumors.
However, Lemon also has a surprising competitive streak and can become stubborn when frustrated or upset with something. She cares a great deal for her self-image or appearance to the point of hiding if she feels she looks silly.
