Describing the Welsh LL to non-linguists

This may be a somewhat unusual request for Conlang-L, but it *is*
linguistics-related, so I'll ask anyway.

I'm writing a story for NaNoWriMo and in it, my main character trips
over pronouncing a word that starts with /ɬ/. How would a non-linguist
describe how it sounds or feels to pronounce? I'm not entirely sure
*I* am pronouncing /ɬ/ right, so your descriptions will also help me.
:) This is only mentioned in passing, since I'm not writing in the
Phonology Thriller genre ;) but I would still like to get the
description right.

Also, what transliterations are there besides "ll" for voiceless
lateral fricatives?
