Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love Ya!

Ladies, ladies, Ladies... if you don't have an appointment for the PARIS Trunk Show that starts tomorrow you are MISSING OUT. Debra Moreland will arrive tonight to prepare for the show this weekend and I just learned that she is bringing her entire new collection -- its never been seen before!! As previous posts state, we are going to market in 2 weeks and THAT is the first time that it will be shown to buyers and then it will take at least 2 months for these pieces to hit stores.... that said, you could be the FIRST to have it! What an honor, not only to have Debra with us, but to have a collection of beautiful things that no one has seen... there are very few appointments left -- but there are some! If you have a flexible friday that would be the best time to come -- but call us to make an appointment... we want you to be able to spend some time with Debra one on one! Yours truly will be assisting Debra this time around so between the two of us, this should be fabulous!

We are going to Martha Stewart!

SO..... I just found out that we are going to be a part of the studio audience at The Martha Stewart Show!!!! How much fun is that??!?!?!?! Needless to say, I am SO excited... we are HUGE Martha fans at the store of course, but I am also personally a HUGE Martha fan so this is E-X-C-I-T-I-N-G!! It is the live show that airs every morning -- We will be in the audience on Tuesday, April 15th... set your DVRs!! Now, if I could just find a way to finagle myself on to the show... any suggestions!?!?!?

New York, here we come!

So, we just made our reservations for New York market week (April 12-15) and we are SO excited! This is a time that we look forward to every season... the new dresses, the new trends, the fashion shows, the cocktail parties ....the FABULOUSNESS! We are staying at the W on Lex and while we've been there many times for other events and what not, we've never stayed there so its exciting to look forward to new digs...

We'll go Saturday through Tuesday... Saturday will consist of traveling, H&M, Saks, Bergdorfs, Soho, lunch, Sample Sales, Scoop, and finally, a huge fashion show and cocktail party at the Milk Galleries with the Pricilla of Boston Group (Melissa Sweet, Vineyard Collection, Pricilla of Boston, and Platinum Collection). Sunday is usually all runway shows at various locations around the city which means running (sometimes literally) from show to show and throwing a few appointments (and shopping) in there sporatically. Monday is going from designer to designer for one on one appointments to view the collections up close and place orders for the next season... and finally Tuesay is usually my "re-see" or "have to see that and didn't know it" appointment day... and of course, a final visit to any other shopping spots that we happened to have missed...... :)

That, ladies, is New York Market... a whirlwind of fashion, parties, shopping and very little rest -- but OH SO FUN! I'll attempt to blog throughout the trip - hope that you will keep me motivated to do so by keeping your emails coming with words of encouragment (read: "we want to see more!!") and we'll do our best to keep it up every day....

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow or Tuesday with some words for the PARIS Trunk Show from Debra Moreland... a fabulous show this weekend!!!

Happy Easter!!
