A while back you may remember we told you that we were in the mist of a big project with details soon to follow! We apologize for the delay in follow up, but here’s what we have been pulling together since January! We were contacted by Lord & Taylor from NYC late December 2015. We were asked if we would be interested in having our Lavender Rose Soap & Body Butter Box Set featured by them in the Spring Collection called Birdcage. Birdcage is a collection of goods from hand picked emerging business and artisans from all over the country! We were excited to be officially named one of the vendors for the 2016 Spring Birdcage collection. The theme is “Spirit of the Rose”. Much to our surprise we were also invited to attend the Spring Launch event of Birdcage in NYC this week!
We are for sale in the Birdcage section of the flagship Manhattan Lord & Taylor store, as well as the Westchester and Palisades New York locations. You can also find us at select Lord & Taylor Stores in New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. We are sold on line also! http://www.lordandtaylor.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/lord-and-taylor/brands/bath-body/lavender-rose-gift-set
I can not tell this story without a huge thank you to Delane Andrews, she is a gem of a team member! Delane was a huge force in helping us meet production for this project! And last but certainly not least my sweet son-in-law Ben McCloskey! Ben is our web expert, and let me tell you it is no small technical task for a small company like ours to interface with a huge company like Lord & Taylor.
There were many unfamiliar systems, rules and regulations that had to be deciphered and followed to the letter, from being set up to receive their orders, from many steps in between to the final ship date and paperwork after the shipment. Ben’s help on this on going learning project has been immeasurable, and we simply can not thank him enough! :)
Another huge reason I can’t wait to go is we get to visit with my daughter India and her husband Michael while we are there! :) So it’s a win win! :)
Stay tuned, we’ll be posting photos as we travel and take in the city!
