4.30.2014 do I love thee?

We have been admirers of HOOPLA since they launched their spa in July 2012...then we got to know the owners and it's been love ever since. Seriously, they are amazing entrepreneurs AND the gals you want for besties!

We are thrilled to be having a trunk show at HOOPLA this week week - Thursday 5/1 and Friday 5/2 from 10am-2pm. Stop by for 10% off HOOPLA services AND 10% off La Plates purchases. Not in KC? Not to worry, use code HOOPLA10 - but be sure to stop by for a pedi next time you're in KC, they are amazing! {2708 West 53rd Street, Fairway, KS 66205}
{discount code expires on 5/2/14, at the conclusion of the trunk show}

Balliets, here we come!

Back in 1992 (Stanton Hall - Miami University) I met a woman that I knew would be a friend for life. At the time, her parents had just moved to Oklahoma City to take over Balliets. It was a great store back then, but this year they moved in to a brand new building - AMAZING!

On Tuesday, October 26th, from 5-9pm, Balliets is hosting a Girls' Night Out. La Plates has been invited to attend and share our products. We can't wait to pack up and head on down! If you're in the Oklahoma City area, join us for the fun!

"Balliets is Oklahoma City's premiere destination for fashion, be it apparel, shoes, cosmetics, accessories... you name it. We have recently relocated from 50 Penn Place and now anchor the upscale retail complex at Western and Grand called Classen Curve.

From the infusion of natural light pouring in all around the store, the three-and-a-half miles of rough white pine on the walls, the pale Italian travertine grand staircase, the revolutionary cosmetics and fragrance studio on the second floor, and the 12X12 foot projection screens inside the store, there is nothing usual about the new Balliets. Each individual dressing room is even uniquely and sumptuously appointed.

A bigger, better Balliets awaits you at Classen Curve. A Balliets with more space, more lines, an expanded shoe department and a brand new contemporary department. Balliets has been reborn and we can't wait to show it off."

If you see me at Balliets later this month, you can bet I'll be having a ball! Nothing like hanging out with an old friend and calling it work...and now for the 90's flashback:

Monogrammed Sweaters - Kids Only, sorry!

Our trunk show guests have been emailing in "special requests" to order these fabulous Monogrammed Roll Neck Sweaters this winter. We took them to all our Fall shows, but weren't sure how to fit them in online...we decided what the heck, our customers love 'em, we'll add them! So, just in time for Easter and Springtime fun, get your little peanut one of these adorable personalized sweaters! We love them in snowy Colorado with a turtleneck or sunny Sea Island with a pair of madras shorts!
Available in 6/12 month - 5/6T
Shipping is $15 for 1 or 10 sweaters, order with a friend!

Trunk Shows

People ask all the time, "how do trunk shows work"? Basically, trunk shows are in-home parties that are coordinated by La Plates and the person interested in sharing La Plates with friends and family. A portion of most trunk show sales goes to the charity of the hostess' choice.

Last week, we were thrilled to have a trunk show in a lovely home in Savannah, Georgia. A portion of all sales will be donated to Hospice Savannah. We took a few shots of the set up, before guests arrived. Trunk shows also give us an opportunity to test out new products. You may see a few items in the photos that you haven't seen online...a sneak peek at what's to come!

One of the hostesses of the trunk show is also a fabulous artist/jewelry designer...she displayed some fabulous pieces too!

Thank you to Kathy and Kendall for sharing your home & fabulous friends and family - what a great night!
