This issue of our newsletter is all about celebrating you! This is your time. It's your time to enjoy life, to be, and to smile in the knowledge that we care about you.
How do we care about you? Let us count the ways . . .
1. We want you to celebrate you!
Join us for our February Girls Night Out! February 7th, from 3-7:00 pm. We'll have wine, chocolate, pampering hand scrubs and a FREE gift for every customer! We have new jewelry, scarves and watches just in! This is our 4th monthly Girls Night Out and we've had nothing but rave reviews from our customers! (ps...save the date for our March GNO: Tuesday, March 20th!)
2. We want you to be able to find stylish clothes and accessories to fit every budget!
We just came home from the buying markets and boy did we find fun things for you! Not only did we find beautiful, fun, and stylish clothing for juniors and women (size S-3X), but we found fabulous new purses, and beautiful new jewelry and scarves. And . . . new gift items - we are so excited to show them to you! Everything will be rolling in to the store in the next couple months so we encourage you to check in often! Things will be changing at the store on a daily basis!
3. We want you to be healthy!
Get out and walk everyone! We have some of the most wonderful things to do in Ely at this time of year! The Ely Winter Festival began on February 2nd and runs through February 12th - you won't want to miss a walk through the park to see the snow sculptures. And of course you can wander the main streets of Ely looking at the art in our business windows thanks to the Ely Art Walk!
And if you like to dance - come and enjoy Ely Rotary's Polar Bear Dance! Saturday - February 4th 8-midnight at Amici's Event Center! Tickets available WELY, Klun Law Firm and Front Porch. $20 per person - must be 21 to attend.
We encourage you to get your annual health checks! A physical, a mammogram, a PAP test, colonoscopy (if you're of age), and make sure you have good heart health! February is Women's Heart Month - check out the following link for some tips on staying healthy and symptoms to watch for: http://www.goredforwomen.org/
4. We want you to know we care!
This week we received a note on our Facebook page from Ely Minnesota, it read: "Thanks for all you do for our community!" What a wonderful and sweet surprise!
It made us sit back and think about what's important to us, and it made us realize that - we are dedicated to helping our community and helping others in need. This past year we donated to 40 different charities that help our community. We donate money, we donate gifts, we host our Style Show where the profits are donated to three children's charities. We host a Relay for Life team that this year alone raised over $2500 for the American Cancer Society! And this number doesn't take into account the personal volunteering we and our staff enjoy doing! At any point in the year you'll find us having fun with the Girl Scouts, Young Life-Ely, working with the scholarship committee at Vermilion Community College, and at many other events. We believe that helping others truly does help yourself.
It's that feeling you get when you see someone else smile because of something good you've just done or said - it makes you feel as though you've made a difference in your little corner of the world. That's what life is all about.
We want to make a difference in your life - not just sell you "things" - we want to help your life be just a little less hectic, a little more happy, and if we can do it with style - even better!
Enjoy your February everyone!
