The BIG TIMEOUT SALE is on!
To introduce you to our beautiful new online store www.shopjulesonline.com, we’re offering 10% off every item. Since we all need a little lift right now, we’ve picked out our newest - and most colorful - stock to lift your spirits and replenish your closet. I know you’ve been using this time to clean it out, right? And you have all those garment bags hanging around waiting for our doors to re-open as soon as safely possible? No need to trip over them this coming week: send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange for a No-Contact Porch Pick Up. We’ll get your things online in two shakes.
We love to help the women at the Jubilee Women’s Center by sending donations of unsold items from Jules, but the temporary store closure means new residents don’t have any chance to rebuild their wardrobes (many women leave their homes in an emergency, and have only what they were wearing at the time) If you have any gently-used clothing that you’d like to donate specifically to Jubilee, we also offer No Contact Porch Pick Up service that comes with a tax receipt! Again, just send me an email to arrange a pick up time.
All that lovely white space in your closet… just waiting for a new frock or two. What a great project for the Big Timeout!
Speaking of cleaning out closets, I Kondo’d my own last week and sent some things back into the circular economy that is Jules, and put aside some denim and a coat for Jubilee as well. The process was enlightening: who knew I love bomber jackets so much? Why do I keep dress pants if I never wear them? Who on earth needs 10 pairs of black shoes? What was I thinking when I bought that adorable jacquard mini with rhinestone buttons?
Questions like these are good to ask, because our wardrobes drive our lives in more ways we can imagine. The bomber jackets make me feel sassy, confident, and approachable. The dress pants need to go: I'm over wearing things that don’t light me up anymore. The mini? I’m craving some nightlife, and the chance to dress up for an evening out. Not an option right now, so I’m using this gift of time to do some future planning: a new symphony season is coming up, and a trip to Brussels in October just went into the books. But why wait to wear it? Stretching my imagination a little bit - something we need to do to get through this season as cheerfully as possible - I realize I can just as easily wear that mini making dinner for my mister. So even if you’re just going to the pharmacy and the grocery store, do it in style. You’ll certainly find an appreciative audience at the moment!
Stay happy and healthy at home. Indulge in a little retail therapy, and get in touch with us if we can help in any way. We’re all in this together, and that’s exactly how we’ll get through it.
