Falling for Fall

Can you believe the first day of Fall has come and gone? Seems like we were just begging for the warm summer days just yesterday and now October is upon us and our first snow will hit us this month...that's Colorado for you!

We are tossing around the idea of a simple Winter collection and wanted some input on what everyone is looking for?? A few ideas are some more comfy and cute knit coordinates, wide cut denim ruffles or how about some comfy velour pants for the moms out there with a small or large ruffle on the bottom paired with a logo cami tank? Just some ideas we are kicking around while we cut and sew and cut and sew......anyone know of a good masseuse?

Oh...and I never posted that we have more leggings available in all 3 colors, but I think most of you already know that :)

Manic Monday

We have an overwhelmingly popular request for more leggings....you ladies love the leggings!

I myself have ordered the MJ Bettie Dress and plan on pairing it up with the Lily leggings in cranberry along with some brown ballet flats (that is if my daughter Miss M. cooperates). They are a perfect match in color :).

So we are on the trail for more cream, espresso and cranberry knit for more leggings...which are you wanting more of? We are getting more requests for espresso and cranberry it seems, so please leave your comments so we know what you like! And we will update you when we get more in! We should be getting more cranberry in early this week so check the blog and the store because it will be in limited quantities.

I am beginning to wonder if we need to open up a second Etsy store....called "Got Pants", "Bottom Half" or "Deux Jambes" (translates to "Two Legs" in french...please give me extra credit for being creative).

The red velour ruffles were selling faster than I could put them in our store late Saturday night and we are now out, so it begins. We are getting more questions on when we can make more red velour ruffles.....we will keep you posted red ruffle lovers.

Sunday Holidaze

So now that we are officially in business here and things are rolling we have decided to begin selling our Holiday Collection on September 28th...2 days and counting.

Sunday sounded like a good day because Sundays are always good days to shop and be lazy. The men are busy with football and other testosterone ridden sports and we can shop and be in our jammies all day if we want and they probably would not even notice.....unless the kids were screaming and hanging from the banisters eating Popsicles in their underwear.....it's okay remember it's Sunday!

So sometime Sunday, could be the wee hours, our items will be ready available in the Etsy store. I am sorry to say the super cute and soft velour pants are available in very limited quantities...unless for some reason a miracle happens and more of this wondrous fabric magically becomes available from the factory in which it came from.

We normally ship our pieces to you within 3-4 weeks, but since we already have orders to fill and cannot anticipate how many more we may receive in addition to this Holiday Line, we would rather be on the safe side and say that Holiday orders will ship first week of November. If we can get them to you sooner than that we will.

So grab your coffee and have your cozy chair ready to do a little surfin LMN style....oh and don't forget about the kiddos, you don't really think I give my kids Popsicles in the a.m. do you?

13 weeks and counting

Until Santa comes to town....or 91 days left to shop, whichever makes you feel better.

Our first Holiday collection "Baby, it's cold outside" will be ready for pre-order in our Etsy shop very very soon. So be sure to check back this weekend when we will be announcing the date you can grab up these LMN goodies!

The collection is a 7 piece collection which includes 3 cozy velour flair ruffle pants, 1 dress, 1 knot apron top, 1 cropped knot top and 1 sweet vintage ruffle peasant top. The velour pants are TDF and if I could make them in my size I would but then we would not have enough fabric to share with all of you - so that would not be fair would it? The Holiday collection will be available in very limited quantities.

Photo session was a bit of a challenge in 89 degree weather so we had to bargain with some "cold" cocoa, marshmallows, whipped cream and of course cookies! It worked like a charm and I was ready for my version of a "cold" one when I got home.

Freebies & Good Manners

Bling Bling Bling we have winners!!

Congrats to Renee H. and Jen A! Renee is post #7 here on the blog and Jen A. is our first official sale in the shop! Please send us an email so we can get you your "LMN Goods".

We also want to thank all of you for making our first days of "Etsydom" (is that even a word?) a great success! So now we need to get rockin on our machines and get those orders out to everyone. And we want to see some pics - yes we love pics so send them to us after you get your goods. Of course we understand some coaxing may be needed and no we do not include the M&M's in our packages - after all they melt.

I have an 8 letter word for you readers .....Leggings. Who knew? You all love the leggings and of course we are glad you do too. They are the "piece de resistance" of the debut collection and we are okay with that. We have more available in the store now so if they sold out before you got them before go take a peak while you can!

We are also busy this week working on a small Holiday line "Baby it's cold outside". A simple and cozy little line she is sure to love and so will you! Hope to have some sneak peaks up later this week! Pre-orders will be available first week of October. And if you have not noticed or just don't have your volume turned up - yep that is Christmas music - just getting into the pre-holiday spirit this week a bit. Call me corny that's fine by me.

The Big Day is here

The Etsy shop is officially open as of late last night, so even if you had wanted to have a sneaky peak you probably would not have even know how to find us....

The link to our Etsy shop is down there at the right, so take a stroll and while you are at it please leave us a comment or two if you like. We are having a contest! Gotta love 'em! We have already randomly picked some numbers, so tell us what you like (we don't' want to hear what you don't like-snicker ) or what you would like to see more of, or that you love us, go ahead and post away.

We are also going to give away a few items based on our first sales in our store! Yep more freebies! Got to love 'em! They are all pieces from our store, can't tell you what they are yet, but they will soon be revealed!

There are 22 total pieces in the collection with 3 other fun little accessories mixed in. We are so happy to be done and if we even remotely lived near each other I would be in the car on my way over now to pop that cork of champagne!

~A Wednesday Preview~

Had to show one more quick peek! Isabel did a bang up job, aside from the occasional "It's too hot outside", etc. lol.
Amy and I are putting the final touches on everything as we speak, we are both super excited and can't wait to show the rest:)

Sunday Monday

Today was not so much a lazy Sunday as some may call it. Fall is in the air and Lesa and I have a busy week on our hands getting ready to open business!

I had a goal of getting some photography done this weekend and mother nature had other plans "rain", well this afternoon the sun came out so out the door we went!

Here are a few of my favorites from today's photo session.

We are well on our way!

It has been a while since our last post and we had a few snags in our master plan of things. It took nearly 4 weeks for our woven labels to arrive and almost 6 weeks for our fabric so we are "behind" as you may say for the fall season.

We hope to have our Etsy shop fully running by late next week.....exhale. And I stress the word Hope as we all know life is full of surprises.

Please check back because great things are yet to come! We will have a great giveaway the day of our grand opening on our blog and in our store!

Not only will we have fabulous vintage inspired dresses, tops and pants but we will also be offering a line called "Luxe" to mix and match with the vintage pieces made of super soft velveteen cord in rich fall colors.
