makeunder my week: july 12th

Hi Guys,

I hope you had a great weekend! I spent the last few days barbecuing, hanging out with friends outside, going to the Green City farmer’s market, and sleeping. Man, did I need to catch up on sleep!

I’m excited to say that I am leaving for my parent’s house outside of Philadelphia on Wednesday and then next week will be heading to NYC to meet with accessory editors at magazines to introduce them to Jess LC. My intention is to give you a behind the scenes look at the PR side of the business since that is something I’m sure many of you with businesses are thinking about doing now or in the future. So consider this your all access pass to what it could be like if you decide to take the plunge into public relations for your company. And if you really want to know, the most nerve-racking part of the “desk sides” for me is deciding what I should wear to the meetings…

In other news, since I will be gone until next Wednesday, July 21st, all orders placed on after 4pm on Tuesday the 13th (tomorrow) will ship on Thursday, July 22nd. And I’m sweetening the deal by giving you a secret MML code good to use on Jess LC today and tomorrow only for 20% off your order – type in the code NYCTRIP NYCTRIP2 before tomorrow at 4pm to get the discount and have your order shipped on Wednesday morning.

Susie, my assistant will be in the studio this week gearing up for the huge sidewalk sale in Daley Plaza on July 20th and 21st. If you are in Chicago either of those days, check out our booth and see the new Franklin collection in person among the rest of our styles.

I also can’t forget to mention the business cards and pencil cups in the photo above. The cutest package ever arrived from Karly at Sweet Beaker this weekend filled with these adorable supplies. I can’t wait to take the cards to NYC and hand them out in business meetings. Up until this point, I’ve had to tell people about MML at cocktail parties and then hand them a Jess LC business card saying “just click on the blog link to get to MML.” Which doesn’t have the same impact as these adorable chevron(!) cards.

Have a great day,
