Kentucky K 150 is a fine mandolin. Buy it from someone like Elderly or the Mandolin Store and it will be setup already.

Eastman also makes the MD 305, but it's a little more. Either of these are good enough to be kept if she were ever to upgrade.

Both of the above are solid carved wood instruments. Avoid the many pretty mandolin shaped objects on the market. Good for you for having this kind of budget.
