Moving into March
by Lisa McGowan
March already, we really are flying through the year. I always feel once February is over and it’s a short month that Spring has definitely arrived girls. The clocks change this month so the longer evenings loom. I love the brighter mornings and evenings, I really do. It’s like I am more productive and I feel like I get lots more done. It will soon be time for me to get the cushions out lol. Spring colours arriving into the shops and on my website. It just gives you a great old pep in your step I think.
The atrocities in the Ukraine and the images in the media are beyond belief. It is hard to believe in the modern world that we live in that this is happening. I can’t even begin to imagine what these families are experiencing and going through. All we can hope and pray for is that peace will prevail and that justice will be served on the aggressors. The world has certainly united here in its quest for right and for the innocent people of the Ukraine.
We all have an extra Bank Holiday to look forward to this month. How nice is this going to be, a four day weekend. We all deserve it after the last two years but it is great to see normality returning and I do think we are all adjusting. I know it is taking some a little longer for others but you must go at your own pace and with what you feel most comfortable with.
‘I am so excited to have a live show this month in Trim also. It is exactly two years since my last show in Sligo…’
Murph is getting on great. I have to say he has brought great joy to the house. He is a character and has us all laughing. We never know what he is going to do next I swear to God. He is a nutter but we love him. He has the legs walked off us but the training is going well and we will get there with him. The doggy day care is going great as well. It is great to drop him off and know he is so well looked after. You know yourselves girls even for holidays it can be so hard to find a good place but we struck gold here. With my work as well and Chris away at times it is brilliant. Put it this way I couldn’t leave him home alone… I genuinely don’t know what I would come home to if I did. I am not sure I would have a cushion or a chair left lol… he likes to have a good old bite at things as you have all seen….
Mothers Day is this month girls, the day after my live show so I will be waking up in Trim.. I will be taking Mam out for a nice meal. Both Mam & Dad do so much for me. I am so lucky to still have them both so I do enjoy spoiling them from time to time. When Better than Mothers Day to look after her. I know we all do different things. Some like to go out with a group of friends, others like to do a larger family gathering. I think this is the first one in two years that we can actually go out for the day. More reason to celebrate our Mammy’s.. Some of us aren’t lucky enough to still have our Mam’s so I know it can be a hard day for some of you reading this today. Sending love and big hugs your way.
I am working away on Lisa & Co. all the time. Lots happening behind the scenes at the moment and I cannot wait to share all the newness with you. I am in between stages at the moment. Waiting for final samples etc but I have some fab Summer colours landing and Autumn/Winter will be very exciting. Again, I want to say a huge thank you for all the support you have shown me as I grow my brand. Without you none of this would be possible. The navy and white sweatshirts are literally flying out the door. They are sold out in some sizes. So much for me having stock until June. I do think that a sweatshirt would make a super Mothers Day present or I have perfume also in stock, CLICK HERE. If you can’t make up your mind there are gift cards on the site. It might be worth dropping a hint at home some night lol…
That is it for now girls. We will chat during the month but here is hoping for a great March.
What’s New for March?
Great to see Born back with me for my March edition. We decided this month to change things up a little and rather than do a feature we would introduce more variety. My newsletter dress this month is from Born and what a cracker it is too. I had the best day on the shoot with Joan and her team. Talk about feeling like a princess for a day I really did girls. I was spoiled rotten and we got cracking shots as well. Emily & me really are quality, quality pieces at a super price point . Courtney & Joan, thanks so much for all the help and support and allowing me to be so involved in the design element of my featured pieces. It was great fun. You know me and fashion girls, a real magpie…. lol!!
Well girl’s you all went mad for the Head towels last month. Poor Derek & Stuart could hardly keep up with the demand… think they nearly had to go on to the gin themselves in the end lol… I have known Derek & Stuart for many years and have always enjoyed their company both socially and professionally. I am so delighted that you are featuring on my site month after month guys and I know the ladies will love all this month’s product. You guys certainly diversified when the pandemic hit and wow, did you get it right a real success story.
