New Line & New Year Tips

Fellow Baker's Crown Jewels Stylists,

My oh my how we've grown! In Nov, Nicole (from Kansas City, MO) joined us and she shared the opportunity with her friend Megan (who joined us this Jan from Steamboat Springs, CO). Ellen (from Houston) also joined in Nov and she did a show for a fellow teacher friend, Michelle (also from Houston), who then joined 12/31!

With all the excitement of the new line, the lessons I learned from Director's Retreat and the valuable training some of us have been experieing from the recent Spring Rallies, I though I would do a quick summary of the highlights... whether you're just starting out or ready to re-engage your Stella & Dot business.

I plan to create a Team Facebook page, just for the 16 or so of us on our team, where we can ask questions, share best practices, helpful action items, search for pieces for clients- you name it. I know we all get a lot out of the larger FB team pages- literrally I cut and paste a lot of pics, invites, etc. from Ali's (my sponsor- Gem Fatales Diamonds) and Tysh (Ali's sister and her sponsor- Gem Fatales Mother of Pearl).

Always happy to help and just a text away, day or night!! Cheers, Lara


In my 18 months of experience selling Stella & Dot and after seeing the new collection in person a few times, here are some of the pieces I think will "sell well". Happy shopping if you have jewelry credits to us or are ready to invest some $ in your samples... I've listed in order from the Spring 2013 line sheet. Please feel free to share your favorites as well!

Necklaces: Sanibel, Fiona, Kimberley (go Kim in DC go!), Avalon Crescent, Pamela Layering, Sanibel Pendant (highlight at trunk shows: there are 2 different stones and the chain can be worn 2 ways), Bellissimo (layered with the Wesley is fab), Maya Pendant (any color), Piper (either), Valor Pendant, 16" Gold charm neckalce

Statement pieces to get "trunk show" attention: Spring Awakening, Maldives

Bracelets: Zinna, Christina (tip: use as a necklace extender!), Vintage twist coral & turquoise, Eden, Julep any color (highlight the $19 price point at shows, great 4 gifts)

Earrings: Seychelles blue, Lily, Medina, Raina, Fiona, Serenity Turquoise, Kimberley, Avalon hoops, Sparkle Studs (these CZs do not look cheap), soiree studs both, any Delphie to match your Maya, Valor

Rings: Mary-Margaret

*PS- How much do you love the new $5 flat neck forms?!? Danielle suggested no more than showcasing 70 items at your trunk show, too overwhelming. Think about your display as telling a story... And if you're in your Jumpstart, good luck earning those free jewelry credits. And for those Stylists who qualify three months in a row, you may have seen you will now receive $100 in free product credit per season.

REMINDER: My $100 in Free jewels promotion

I am offering for those stylists who qualify in Dec '12 and Jan '13, you will receive $100 product credit! CONGRATS for Qualifying in Dec: Jennifer C, Ellen, Kim, Lauren, Nina and Wendy. And now in 2013, it is just $500 in retial sales to qulaify (which menas you'll start earning business supply credits even earlier!). Mid-month check in and with our new metrics, Nina has qualified for Jan. And I know Jennifer has one show booked for Jan and a few in the works.

Can't beat those Jan trunk show exclusives and the extra $50 for Jan. hostesses! 2 more great reasons to call several of your potential hostesses. I have one show for Jan booked on the 30th, so my goal over lunch tomorrow is to get at least 2 more in time for friends to make their Valentine's WISHLISTS!
