Autism Awareness Month
April is always Autism Awareness Month at Stella & Dot and once again with are partnering with the Holly Rod Foundation and giving back. We have designed a special autism awareness bracelet which has been flying off the shelves!! So much in fact, that it SOLD OUT! As a result, we have added 3 more styles to our Autism Boutique. All net proceeds will be donated to the Holly Rod Foundation.
If this cause is near and dear to your heart or someone you know, let's book a Autism Fundraising trunk show in April and support this amazing cause that affects more and more families each year. Giving back always feels good.
I am having another Mystery Hostess shopping event in honor of Mother's Day which is sneaking up on us all (Sunday May 8th). From now until April 30th - spoil yourself, your mom or your mother-in-law and shop using this trunk show link http://www.stelladot.com/ts/1z3f6 and you will be entered to win the Hostess Rewards!! You can also contact me to place your order directly to make sure it gets applied to the correct trunk show. I can't wait to see who the lucky winner will be this time!!
Our Summer Collection launched this week and I am very excited to share some of my favourites. Of course, we have some great summer jewels and bags but we have also launched some exclusive summer styles including tunics and sunglasses!! Let's take a look!
My favourite thing about the summer collection (besides the sunnies!) are the new wrap bracelets. It is an automatic arm party - no thinking required! I love that! With a casual, boho flair these styles will be sure to be HOT for summer with your shorts and tees! One picture 4 bracelets (shown below). The Lola Wrap, the Vista Wrap and the Reina Necklace worn as a wrap in neutral (brown) or multi-color (pink/turquoise/blue)! Which is your favourite? I honestly can't decide - the Lola, Vista and neutral Reina are all tied in my book!
Tunics & Sarongs
In addition to our white lace tunic which debuted last month, we've added two new styles. I LOVE our white and blue Embroidered Tunic! It has an adjustable drawstring, so you choose the length and can be worn as a top as well for a cool boho vibe. Love it! this tunic has been so popular it has already SOLD OUT in XS/SM size - in just 3 days!! That is crazy! The M/M and L/XL are still available, so, get yours now before the other sizes sell out too as we only have a limited quanitity and once they are sold out they are gone for good!
The flowing navy and white Caftan has a pattern that was specifically designed to fit and flatter women of all shapes and sizes.
The coral sarong is lightweight and washable and doubles as a swim suit sarong or an infinity scarf. This sarong was specifically designed with minimal fabric so as to avoid the bulkiness of of a typical sarong when you tie it. It is shaped like a tube and you just slip into and give it a quick tie on the side. Also available in black/white. And if you haven't noticed by now...tassels continue to be a huge trend in clothing and jewelry! Check out those great sunglasses too....
Here are my top 3 picks from the Summer Collection!! My fav is the Costa!
Silver and soft turquoise dream - removable tassel
Bright cobalt blue short layering - removable tassels
Silver layering for everyday - wear 1, 2 or all 3 strands
Bags and Small Accessories
NEW!! Reversible totes! How cool is that!! Available in chambray/mint or denim/ikat. Wipeable coated canvas makes this your essential, no-fuss bag for summer, for the beach/pool and comes with a removeable pouch to keep you organized and a great price too at $84 - it's like getting 2 bags in 1! Love that!
I also have a hard crush on our NEW travel jewelry box in a cute fun pattern that will keep your jewelry organized and tangle-free when you travel. Includes layering pads as well.
I saved the best for last with our sunnies - a brand NEW product category for Stella & Dot!! Hello Sunshine!! Available in 3 different styles/shapes - the Aviator, the Miramar and the Parker. All styles are hand crafted frames (just like Prada, Chanel, Tiffany, etc.) and hand polished.
The classic aviator style (available in gold or white) will never go out of style. The Miramar is playful and chic and available in blonde or black and the Parker (available in tortoise) has a classic oversized cat-eye design. Each pair comes with a beautiful hard case and a cleaning cloth. My fav is the Aviator in gold!
