â€œIâ€™m very thankful that very early on, I realized that the relationship I have with myself is very important and that I have to be my own friend. Itâ€™s been very helpful.â€ â€“ Diane von Furstenberg
November is all about gratitude. Weâ€™re sharing 8 reasons weâ€™re thankful this month, and weâ€™re looking for opportunities to show appreciation more often. Because gratitude is a lifestyle, and we hope to wear it well.
We are grateful for:
- This new adventure calledÂ Est8te, curating collections ofÂ clothing, jewelry, handbags and more and for theÂ relationships already established with clients and the new ones we have yet to meet.
- The Akola Projectâ€™s vision to build a globalÂ fashion brand created by and benefiting women living in poverty in five rural Ugandan villages. Their mission is to empowerÂ marginalizedÂ women to transform the physical and spiritual livelihoods of theirÂ families and communities through economic development. Their jewelry: Stunning.
- Places to go and Tory Burch shoes to get youÂ there. From flats to boots and sandals to heels, we can travel with you from snow toÂ sand.
- Ken Downing for teaching us to understand theÂ allure of fur: â€œShe doesnâ€™t wear fur because she is cold, she wears fur becauseÂ she is glamorous.â€Â And we have you covered from scarves to vests.
- The University of Tennessee Medical Center CancerÂ Institute for its commitment to research and finding a cure. WeÂ are donatingÂ 10% of all sales this month from our menâ€™s department to the institute. Stop by for Jeremy Argyle shirts, AG jeans and khakis and ALOÂ exerciseÂ attire.
- Thanksgiving Day with family and friends. To commemorate those memories, we have Jonathan Adler frames to keep the beautiful smiles of your loved ones close toÂ your heart.
- Party clothes for party season! Leona, Haute Hippie, YoanaÂ Baraschi, Nicole Miller and more will be your shimmer and shine for the holidayÂ festivities ahead.
- Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving is the traditional first day ofÂ holiday shopping, and we will be rocking the racks! All black attire is 20% off on Black Friday.
In gratitude and in style,
Mary Ellen and Nell
