Summer Lovin'

Sorry for the lack of blog posts this month, but I have been a busy little bee.  I have been putting off and putting off sorting out production of the Black Nell Robe which sold out pretty quickly the last time that I put it into production.  So at the beginning of this month I made a concerted effort and sat down to sort out the pattern, fabrics and production.  So hence the quietness this month (plus I had man flu so was out of action for about a week, oh woe is me!).

So update on the Nell Robe.  I know you all love it and want it back asap.....but with various problems with production it is going to be a little while longer before you can get your glamorous mitts on it.  I have the production slot booked...................but I'm afraid it's not booked until end of August/beginning of September.  As I produce in small quantities (compared with other established brands) they have said that if they can slot me in before they will try.  But we are talking about an in demand factory here; I have it on good authority that they have turned down new customers as they are so busy at the moment.  So if one wants the best, one is going to have to wait.  To put myself in the safe zone, I will say that they are due September 2013.  Here is a sneaky peek at what the new (and improved) version looks like:

It is with the beautiful Morgana at the moment waiting to be photographed in all its glory.  Once I have the images and have worked out the RRP, I will pop it up ont website so you can pre order your very own robe!

But anyhoo on to the subject of this blog post.  This summer I will be taking part in the catwalk show at the Americana International Show.  Americana International Show is a celebration of all things American right here in the UK.  It is being held from 11th July - 15th July in Winthorpe (nr. Newark) Nottinghamshire.  The fashion show itself is only on the Saturday 13th July and Sunday 14th July from 2:30pm - 4:30pm.  There will also be a whole host of other awesome brands taking part.

I will be bringing all my lovely items which you can see on my website at the moment, along with a few new additions which are part of my Autumn/Winter 2013/2014 collections.  So come along to see the debut of the BRAND NEW ITEMS!!!  You can see them in person and try them on for size, and if you're really lucky I may even let you pre order some of the new items.  I will bring with me some stock also so you can take away on the day a glam little outfit, should you wish.  Nearer the time I will tweet and facebook and all that jazz about the event, just note it down in your diary for now and get your tickets organised.  I can't wait to meet some of the other brands I have not met before and all of the fabulous models which have been booked.  It is sure to be a big girlie get together!

Anyway I'm off to nag suppliers about this Nell Robe!  I will try and blog more in May (I have a photoshoot booked) I promise.

Lots of Love

Spring Clean (and freebies)

It's been a little quiet here at Blue's HQ.  I am in the process of making samples and putting brand new items in to production, so news is a little thin on the ground.  The last couple of days I have been doing a stock check for my end of financial year documents.  So I have discovered just how much of each item I have left in stock.

As I am preparing for the new products I need to make room to put all of my new stock.  So for the next 2 weeks (or until stock lasts) I am offering you all a fantastic, one of a kind, special offer!

Offer Number One

Spend £75+ in the Betty Blue's Loungerie online shop and get a free gift worth £25!  In fact it is this free gift:

Your very own Marilyn Headscarf in either Black or Pink.  It won't show up in your basket, just on your doorstep with your beautiful loungerie.*

Offer Number Two

Spend £150+ in the Betty Blue's Loungerie online shop and get a free gift worth a whopping £70!  One of four designs, the beautiful Luna 100% Silk Headscarf.

I know!  I'm awesome right!!  I have said it before, but there is nothing quite like a silk scarf to indulge yourself.  So head on over to my shop and snap up some gorgeous loungerie so you can have a completely free little prezzie from me!**

This offer is only whilst stocks last so hurry on over to the website so you don't miss out.  You'll be doing me a favour clearing out my stock room ready for new little delights.  Win win all round I think!

Lots of Love

The Small Print
* I'm afraid you don't get a choice of colour, it's whatever I put my hands on first!
** Again it is pot luck which pattern scarf you get, so it will be a lovely surprise when you get it :)
The offer is valid for two weeks only, or until stocks last of the scarves.  The scarves won't appear in your shopping basket but rest assured it will appear on your doorstep with the rest of your order :).  Only valid on (not my Etsy shop).
