Send Off Summer In Style!!!

September Team Newsletter and Pump UP your Fall for Success!

Let's "Fall" Into Fashion, Team!!!

Welcome to September! I hope that you all have had a fabulous, fun-filled and prosperous Summer. Now that the kiddos have gone back to school, and life is settling back into a routine, it's time to get our individual plans and strategies together for a successful selling season for the final quarter of the year - the BIGGEST AND BEST selling season of all!!! And it's also so much fun! Stella & Dot has so many incentives this month - we have the Exclusive Hostess Boutique that opens on Oct. 1, and that our hostesses in September will be the first to get to shop it. We have the "Stack Up Your Rewards" incentive for all stylists this month to help you pay for your Holiday Collection with free product credits. We have the new little girls collection that is going to be awesome for booking incentives for those Mommy & Me parties and will be so great for trunk show add-ons and gifts. And we have our own goals that we are trying to reach and I will be offering incentives to all of you to reach for the "Stars"! Literally!!!! Who's ready to kick it into a higher gear and start building a team??? If that is part of your goal, then we need to schedule some coaching sessions so that I can help you get there.

Booking - Exclusive Holiday Hostess Boutique

Use this exclusive hostess boutique as a booking incentive to your potential hostesses to get those September shows on your calendar. Thank you to all of you who helped me reach my goal in August which was to win all levels of the Rock The Summer Challenge - I will loan out my prizes to all of you who are local so that your hostesses can see what they will earn with their hostess rewards. For those of you on my team who are not local - let's chat and see what we can do!!!

September Trunk Show Exclusives

If you are using Dottie - then the Trunk Show Exclusives bonus shows up while you are checking out your guests, and the add-on sales from this has dramatically increased sales for me and many others. If you're not using Dottie, then you should print out the pdf (I usually put it in a frame and have it at my check out station at my trunk shows). These are such great items so make sure you mention them in all of your check-out chats!

Who Still Doesn't Have An Ipad???? Have you heard of "Dottie"? The New Trunk Show Assistant?

I REEEAAALLLY would love to draw a name for someone to win the Ipad that I won in the last Stella & Dot Ipad challenge at the end of last year. I have LOVED my Ipad, but I have decided to upgrade to the "bells & whistles" Ipad. The Ipad that I have now is fabulous - and so if you would like this little beauty for your business - then all you have to do is sell 1500 pcv in the month of September to be entered into a drawing for her. That's ONLY $2,308 retail (or basically 2-3 trunk shows). So please respond to this email and let me know if you're up for the challenge and let's schedule some time to talk and figure out how to get you there. It's only September 1st - so we have a full month to take action and receive results.

Lilly Pulitzer 17 Month Agenda

And for those of you that are able to achieve 1500 pcv in September, then you ALL will earn the Lilly Pulitzer Agenda shown below!!!! It is such a great calendar and agenda and I really want all of you to have it! So let's book trunk shows and set ourselves up for an unbelievable Fall selling season!!! OK????
