A Note From Jane: Diary Installment 34
The reality of this blog is that I cannot control my excitement this holiday and I need a little affirmation that you are in the same place. I have wanted to put up my Christmas tree since October 27th. The girls in the office are laughing at me as I hound them to put up our holiday décor every day. We have the MOST festive garland on our showroom windows (thanks you Jenna!) and our lavender tinsel Christmas tree is bursting out of it’s box begging to be placed front and center. I have a mini Christmas tree for every desk. We have our holiday office lunch planned and Elfster has assigned our Secret Santa. WE ARE READY.
Last week we had trunk shows every day and saw first hand what people are gravitating to for gifts. So far it’s all about our personalized pieces (think letters and the newly launched birthstone pendants) and LOVE – anything hearts or love. Since you receive emails you will be the first to know about new items coming and back in stock items (ahem the chunky chain is coming back soon! Promise!). Might be a good time to add your mobile number - we update via SMS first 📱. It is such a joy to help you, our amazing customers, find the perfect gift for your person and for YOURSELF. We have a few more events coming up (Philly, Palm Beach, Kansas City— come and see us!) but if we are not in a city near you we still really really really want to help you find the perfect gift. Send us a note and Taylor and I will be your personal shopper. I spent this morning DMing back and forth with one of our best customers talking about shades of Botswana Agate (hi Brooke!). These moments make my day. We have also curated a fabulous gift guide to help you shop for all of the women in your life, updated with brand new product launches each week. We are making it really easy to gift this year—chic, jewelry with meaning, chosen just for your person, the perfect packaging, shipped right away. You can even drop a hint to your husband/kids/sister/bff with what’s on your wish list. No excuses this year, you are getting what you WANT this holiday if I have anything to do with it 💋.
Next week is Thanksgiving AKA we will have a house full of kids sneaking whiteclaw into the basement. Both Sabrina and Drew fly in from their perspective colleges on Tuesday and I will be pulling up to the Philly airport JUMPING out of the car, I cannot wait to have these kids home. When my Dad was alive he would arrive the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and we would spend all day Wednesday going to the farmers market getting the Thanksgiving supplies. I would take the day off work and truly relax for a moment – none of it felt frantic it was just a joy…those moments with him are some of my fondest memories of my dad – lol carrying a giant turkey from the farmers market 😊. So I will be wearing my Peace coin to Thanksgiving to have him there with me. Post-Thanksgiving we will be launching surprises EVERY DAY for the black Friday – cyber Monday weekend. I will be shopping all day on Black Friday (I bet you will be too!) and then Saturday we will celebrate Hannukah before all of the kids go back to school for the last month of the semester. I can’t wait to be with my family, to eat and laugh and be together.
Since it’s now November 18, I feel like I am finally allowed to say that I am wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season filled smiling till your cheeks hurt, giant family dinners, late nights with friends, perfectly wrapped gifts with meaning, and tons and tons of JOY.
