All You Need To Know for a Fabulous Trunk Show

Your Date Is Booked, Now What?

Thanks for choosing me as your Stella & Dot Stylist! We will have a great time getting your girlfriends and family together for a fun, fashionable shopping event! My job is to make this fun and easy and to get you everything on your wish list! Here is a quick run down of how it all works.


1. Build YOUR wish list! Log onto your Stella & Dot account {www.stelladot.com/laurentrain} and heart your favorite items.


2. Build your guest list. The more the merrier. When making your guest list, make sure you invite your friends from all of your different social circles - think neighborhood, church, family, mommy groups, work friends, etc! Typically 1/3 to 1/4 of your guest list will be able to attend.


3. You dont have to stick just to local friends and family. Make a list of out of town contacts and those friends can order online towards your show. Your guest list can be all email addresses, mailing addresses or a combination of both.


4. Once you have your guest list ready (email and physical addresses) forward it to me and I will create a stylist invite to send to your contacts and also keep track of responses and reminders. If you want all paper invites mailed out, I am happy to print and mail those for you! Not sure of the best way to invite and include all of your contacts? Let's discuss!

It's SHOW TIME!

Your guests have all been invited and everyone is excited to shop!


For the day of the show, keep it SIMPLE! Just put out a few light snacks and/or drinks near the accessories. Coffee and bagels, Mimosas and muffins or Wine and cheese are a few easy ideas.


Dress in something casual and of course pick out some Stella & Dot to accessorize with!


Relax and have fun!

The After Party

There may be a few friends who weren't able to make the show. Thats OKAY! Your show will be open for orders three weeks after the actual show. This is great because we can follow up with those who missed and we can keep sharing the style online and maximize fun and rewards.


Once all orders are in, then shop away!! You can log in online to your Stella & Dot account to shop or you can call me and I can place the order for you. Your credits are good for six months and you can use them all now, or use some now and save some for later - its up to you!
