I loved, loved, loved our Pop Up Sale yesterday at Thrive Home Furnishings on Beverly Blvd! My favorite part was absolutely meeting the customers who arrived as early as 10:00 a.m. (the sale started at noon). Some of them drove in from as far away as San Bernardino and Bakersfield – and it was raining toward the afternoon! Like coming down hard, don’t slip, ruin my blowout kind of rain.
Above: Here I am with newly minted Vanity Girl (and fellow #girlboss) @jewelsfordivas who experienced all the fun including lashes from Robyn of Makeup Mandy and held her own impromptu photo shoot. The was the whole point! Thrive showroom managers Joe & Liz created an adorable step & repeat vignette right in the showroom window featuring a Ruby Red Broadway and Eiffel Tower Lamp.
Above: The lovely & experienced “lasher” Robyn of Makeup Mandy on Melrose came out to make sure our guests had complimentary flutter worthy lashes. She customized everything for guests including our San Bernadino pinup girl guests who wanted serious MEOW cat eyes (my personal fave) to another more customer who opted for a more natural look. Custom party lashes while shopping, sipping champagne while getting your hair did by Aveda? Yes please! Shopping sale #vanitygirl style.
Above: Vanity Girl customers were greeted at the front door by cutie pie Carlo who handed guests a flute with their choice of champagne, mimosas or bottled Evian. And I had custom Holiday sugar cookies made featuring some of my favorite things including Hello Kitty with holly in her hair, kiss face emoji and of my favorite a Black Broadway cookie with x’s and o’s, a kiss mark and hashtag #vanitygirl. J’adore!
Above: These #beautybesties were so adorable! @hairbyjianni on the left picked up a White Broadway for her Salon Republic space by the beach. Like many of our customers yesterday, she walked in and knew exactly which vanity she wanted. After buying it, our truck with strong elves helped her load it into her car. Then, she and her #beautybestie came back in and had bubbly and hung out with us! I loved that. People came and hung out on the couches and I got the chance to chat with my Vanity Girls which was the biggest treat of all.
I also loved meeting the boyfriends and hubbies who came in and were a bit overwhelmed by the lashes and curls going on lol. They were so cute, often pulling up an iPhone to just show us what they needed. I snapped some selfies with them too but of course I CAN’T post those yet because that would ruin the surprise for their Vanity Girl!
Skylar was our pro photographer yesterday so I will have a lot more pictures, but this is just a quick snapshot from our Pop Up Sale yesterday! We have a few vanities left in the showroom that you can buy right from the floor AND we have a SuperSunday Flash Sale for the rest of the country. Today only use Code “SuperSunday15”
