Monday Memo

5 Things to Know This Week

New Weekly Feature: Monday Memo

Happy Monday, my friends!

I’m feeling the need to shake things up around here a little bit, so I’m launching a new series this week: the Monday Memo!

This will be a listing of all the things you need to know this week. Some weeks, the listing might be organized and all related items. But other weeks, it might be a bit more random.

Who knows what each new week will bring? 🙂

If you, like me, like random fun stuff, this might be the column for you! There are so many little things that I want to share, but they aren’t necessarily worthy of a full blog post – if that makes sense.

Without further delay, let’s get to the first Monday Memo…

Monday Memo: 06.22.2020

5 Things To Know This Week

1 – Packed Party at Walmart

Did y’all see the good news? Last week, Packed Party launched an exclusive line of products with Walmart!

To my knowledge, this is the first non-celebrity branded line that Walmart has done – a pretty major accomplishment! And when Walmart calls your company their “fave new brand”, it’s a good day to celebrate!

So, take a minute to peruse theses exclusive fun party products at amazing prices! Because of COVID, the in-store rollout has been a little slower than we’d like, but hopefully, you can find what you need in-store and/or online asap!

Side note: for those of you who aren’t familiar with my involvement with Packed Party, founder Jordan Jones and I have a longstanding relationship… I was proudly her first investor years ago! And I am a board member and advisor. We’ve been through so much together, and this is definitely a moment worth celebrating!

2 – Sail to Sable x Style Charade

Did you see the capsule collection of six dresses that Jenn Lake launched with Sail to Sable?

This collection is just as bright and cheerful as Jenn herself! I ordered this dress, and I love it so much that now I want the same silhouette in this print! Side note: that palm print dress is currently sold out, but it’s being restocked! Order now.

Browse all six dresses here:

3 – Last Chance for My FTD Arrangement!

Have you had a chance to order my “You Color My World” floral arrangement for FTD?

This colorful, cheerful arrangement is only available through the end of the month!

So, order now! Whether for yourself or a friend, this bouquet is destined to be a day-brightener!

Side note: that link I provided should get you 10% off!

4 – Three Designer Dress Collaborations at Target

Did y’all see the three new designer collaborations that Target launched last week?

Partnering with Cushnie, Lisa Marie Fernandez, and LoveShackFancy, Target has developed an assortment of summer-perfect designer dresses at Target-perfect prices!

Lisa Marie Fernandez has long been a favorite of mine (as evidenced here and here). But her dresses are usually pricey – running between $500 and $1000 for a dress. So, the chance to get one of her dresses for $60 or less is an amazing opportunity! This dress (also in black and white) and this one are my favorites.

Note that these designer dresses are available in extended size ranges. Bravo to Target for this!

5 – Frozen Birthday Party

Believe it or not, Elle’s 3rd birthday was a week or so ago. We had a small group of friends together to swim and celebrate with cake and cookies.

I’m working on a blog post for this week recapping our simple yet chic Frozen-themed party!
