  We have been running a new campaign in recent newsletters where we feature some of our favorite #clpladies. Jessica, my marketing guru, suggested this idea a while back and I am tickled she did. She reached out on social and then followed up with some of my favorite clients, many who have become my dearest friends. She asked them to tell her about their favorite pieces, my shop, and well, about me. The results have been enough to make

We feel lucky to do what we love every day, and recognize we are part of a larger community and world. Supporting organizations here in our own community or who are doing work on the national level that we find important, will always be at the core of what we do. Sometimes we run givebacks for a period of time (like when the proceeds from your purchases last holiday season helped us give $5000 to

We always have a sense of what pieces are doing best in the line, but it's fun to see the results in black and white at year-end. Last year's roster of bestsellers is a well-rounded group -- everyday basics, a little sweetness, a little rock 'n roll. Which one is your favorite? See them all here.

On March 7th, Z and I went to see Oprah in Denver. It’s crazy that was only 4 weeks ago. Seems like an eternity. Of course, Oprah shared a lot of pearls that day. Little did I know how much some of them would be put to the test so soon. Anecdotes she extolled, wise words from that oh-so-wise woman, that resonated with me that day now are shouting in my brain

In February I traveled to the Tucson Gem Show. It was my sixth year going and it continues to get better each time. I always leave feeling excited, inspired and centered. If the new year is the time when we look back on the highs and lows of the year in the rear view, the gem show marks for me the point where I get laser-focused on my goals for the year
