We really pulled it off... Opening Day!!
Opening day was SO much fun and much much more than I expected... we were exhausted though! Mom and I finished up the store last night at 1:30am and it looks spectacular. I really didn't think we were going to be able to pull it off, but we did!
Yesterday is a total blur... woke up early... ran around a ton for last minute stuff... went to the store to finish odds and ends, hang and finish tagging clothes, merchandise all the clothes around the store... watch the Sign installers hang the sign... make the window display... washing the windows... taking out the garbage... wait for the countertop... making alternative arrangements for the lack of countertop...washing the floors... I still can't believe we got that all done in a day! But needless to say, we were exhausted when we left. And this morning too.
The day went super well. Lots of well wishes from all and overall it was very well received by Saint John. I hope the buzz is good outside the store as well :) People recognized and loved Paige Premium Denim (yesss!), the Canadian designers went over well like Guido and Mary and Lily + Jae, so did my Hunter boots that came in last minute... we're off to a great start! Hope you enjoy the pictures- they're a little off color (I was in a rush to take them and the camera's not great!!)
Thanks so much to EVERYONE who helped and complimented and made it perfect :) I'm just pleased as punch....
I am soooo looking forward to tomorrow, but more importantly, I'm looking forward to a good night sleep tonight!
OH! and PS- the verdict is NO harem pants... I'm getting the impression that no one likes them but me. You'll see though, they're cool...
