Welcome February

Welcome February….

Well girls we made it through January and are out the other side. That is an achievement in itself don’t you think? Well I do lol. I can see the stretch in the evenings and this month we will see a little more Spring arriving which might give us all a little more pep in our step.

As Januarys go, it went by pretty quickly I felt. We were so busy which always makes the time fly by. The hats and scarves arrived so I was chatting with lots of you and sharing the lovely messages, pictures and emails that you sent me. I cannot believe they are all but gone. I genuinely cannot. I literally ordered thousands and thousands of them. I loved the colours and did spend a huge amount of time trying to get them 100% right. I won’t be repeating the four colours but I will have new colours arriving in for this coming Winter. I rely on you guys so much for guidance. When I love a few colours I pop up a poll and it is great to be able to include you all in the process. None of this would be possible without all my fabulous followers who support me year in year out and for which I am forever grateful.

I popped a surprise launch in last Friday, my grey sweatshirt with a cerise pink logo. I have to say I think it is my favourite so far. It took me time to get the grey marl correct and the cerise exactly as I wanted it but I got there. It is a great colour coming into Spring and goes so well with both Winter & Summer looks. The grey is the new style and fit girls which you all seemed to love. This is the last of this style of sweatshirt that will launch this year girls. Always good to finish a style on a major high…. There are a few left in limited sizes CLICK HERE TO BUY.

Sunglasses, Oh Lordyyy, sunglasses. They really are a phenomenon. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it was possible to have such success with a single product. I love them and I know you all do too. I have received such amazing feedback on them and I literally cannot keep them in stock. The good news is that I have another order placed and would hope to have them on presale at the end of March. I am just waiting on the manufacturer to 100% confirm but they are on the way. I have also doubled the order so fingers crossed I will have enough this time round.

This weekend, well actually this Tomorrow evening we head to Cork for the live shows. I won’t lie, I am a bit nervous and I always am before the shows but I enjoy them so much. This is the last run of Lisa’s Lust List Live Shows. I would love to be able to continue to run them but there is so much going on with my page and with Lisa & Co that it makes it hard to do everything and you know me I have to have it perfect. The shows take a huge amount of work and time as you can imagine. Lots of coordination and planning and a very big team work on it. Team work really does make the dream work. I really want to say a huge thank you to all the brands who work with me on the shows. The goodie bags are really like no others and these ones are out of this world. The value of each is €460.00!! I kid you not girls. I am so lucky to have the brands support me, I really cannot thank them enough. This year shopping will be open to those not attending the shows. Shopping will open at 4.00pm on Friday and from 2.00pm on Saturday & Sunday. I will have sunglasses with me and will split them out equally over the three days to be fair to all attending. The brands will have amazing deals over the weekend also. We will have 23 shops to browse in the Radisson Blu in Cork over the show weekend. I will fill those of you not attending in with all the deals on the Friday afternoon and try to convince them to pop the offers online also… you know me always after the old deal. For those of you attending I am really looking forward to meeting each and every one of you all 1,200 of you xxx

I am really looking forward to starting my new home later this year. I am just out of a meeting with the design team now and I have to say I am super excited for the project to start. I love interiors and I know exactly what I do and don’t want. Don’t get me wrong I love my current house and I will be very sad to leave it but with the office closing and me working from home full time I just don’t have the space anymore. I have had many many happy years here but it is time to move on. Excited but nervous at the same time which is understandable I suppose.

As love is in the air this month I thought it would be nice to do a little offer for you all. Could be time to start dropping the old Valentine gift hints girls….The flamingo & Fern kimono would tick that box nicely lol. From today I am going to pop on a 20% discount code on both designs. They really do finish off the look so well and add real glam to the loungewear. CLICK HERE TO BUY.

That’s about it for this month girls. I will be chatting to you all throughout the month with all the news.

Have a great February,

What’s New for February?

Great to have Born with me again. Born are the feature boutique of the month for February.  It really is great working with Joan & her team.. We have all our looks picked out right up until June girls. In the next few weeks we will be looking at the second half of the year. Time really flies by that is for sure. Joan has changed it up this year and I know you will all love it girls. So looking forward to the Spring looks arriving in.
My blogs and newsletter just would not be the same without Pamela Scott. Every month since I started Richard and his team have been on the site. You certainly loved the joggers last month. Well lots more fab pieces to show you this month. Stay tuned. I have a meeting this month with Richard to sort out the looks for the latter part of the year.
A very exciting month with Nina’s this month girls. For those of you looking for communions and confirmations watch this space. Amazing Kate Cooper looks on the site. I know you are going to love. I had problems picking my favourites there were that many. Lovely Spring colours, really bright and positive.
Great as always to have POCO on the website. Pippa and her crew are a dream to work with on a monthly basis. They really have amazing jeans. I can find it difficult to get jeans to fit me properly and I have to say the POCO ones really do. The quality and cut are just exceptional. I cannot recommend them enough to you all.
As I always say you all nearly know Rachel at this stage. She is part of the family and the furniture. She will be down at the Cork show for the three days with us all so lots more of you will meet her. All her new stock is landing too girls. She has such amazing Summer looks landing.
I really hope you enjoy the fashion and style that I have chosen for February girls. I really try hard to keep it fresh and fun and put lots of time into getting it right. Looking forward to your feedback on it all.
Chat really soon,
Lisa xx
