Filling you in about what's going on with Stella & Dot!!!

Dear Beloved Customer,

There is so much going on in the Stella & Dot world that I decided to do a quarterly update to share information in a personal yet fun manner! My goal as your stylist is to offer you the most updated and personal experience you can have with Stella & Dot. There are huge things ahead for the rest of the year, and I want to keep you informed!

I just came back from Hoopla, our annual conference. It was great! And it was so informative, too. The new fall line has been released, which is perfect as we transition into fall. This fall the hot trends are: metallics with everything, pastels and wearing pops of color with neutrals! You read right, pastels! Don't put that winter white away because a huge trend is wearing white with pastels ALL year round! And be prepared to see white and black paired with hot pink! All of these trends can be found in the new line that is up and available to shop. The design team has outdone themselves with this new fall collection! Here is a peek at two of my favorite pieces, the Gabrielle pearl necklace!

As another exciting part of the fall collection, we now are offering engravable jewelry!

You can personalize any piece to say exactly what you want. The pieces are great to layer with a lot of the existing looks. Layering is huge trend for the fall and is being seen in all the fashion magazines. When our CEO Jessica Herrin and Designer Blythe Harris were at Vogue over the summer, they took Blythe's necklace right off her neck!

That is a great example of how big this new line will be for the fall. The great thing that sets our engravable jewelry apart from others is the price point. These pieces are priced so affordably that not getting one to complement your jewelry would just be wrong! :)

If you are interested in placing an engravable order please contact me, and I can help you make sure that you get just what you are looking for.

And if you have a show from now until August 31 you will receive an engravable item free on top of all of your other hostess rewards! Simply reply to this email and let me know what date you are thinking about! Hurry, because August is filling up fast with this amazing offer.

Now, I saved the best and most important for last. Did you know that we lose 287,000 women every year to complications from pregnancy and childbirth? And out of that number, 2 women every day here in the U.S. are going to die as a result of such complications. Because of such loss, that means the U.S. ranks 60th worldwide in terms of maternal health. I don't know about you, but both numbers startle me and make me want to help take action.

Each year we partner with a foundation, and I am thrilled to announce we are partnering with Christy Turnlington Burns and her charity, Every Mother Counts! This year I was able to hear about the foundation at Hoopla. It was an amazing opportunity because it allowed me to be able to convey the message to you all. This foundation is one that focuses on offering maternal health to women across the world.

Through our partnership, we've created our chic Enlighten Bracelet for $39. All net proceeds will benefit programs that Every Mother Counts supports. This leather wrap bracelet features a malleable gold-plated brass bar sitting atop an adjustable, poppy orange leather band. The interior is embossed with the names of all the important ladies in your life: MERE-SOEUR-FILE-MOTHER-SISTER-DAUGHTER-FRIEND-MAMA-SCHWESTER-TOUCHTER, which translates to Mother, Sister, Daughter in French, English and German.

I am going to leave you with this quote from the Chairman of our Board Mike Lohner:

“When you write the story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen!”
