Hello again lovelies,
It's almost been a month since we publicly announced HeirLoom by HerringStone's and what a whirlwind it has been! My emotions have been all over the place-in a good way. I would compare the way I'm feeling to the anticipation you feel as a little kid the night before Christmas. Let's be real here, we all know that feeling of waiting up what seems like ALL night, (really only past 9:00pm)- to try and see Santa coming down the chimney. The feelings of utter joy, excitement, nervousness, and anxiety all set in and we are instantly, for that one moment in time, arguably the happiest we've ever been knowing Santa is on his way. Right now, I am the happiest I've ever been. I feel like a little girl all over again waiting for Santa but I'm awaiting the grand opening of HeirLoom by HerringStone's. So, as you can see, opening this store means everything to me so when we decided it was time to publicly announce HeirLoom we needed to do it with a BANG!
Just a few short weeks ago HerringStone's of Lafayette participated in the Independent Fashion Show. It was quite possibly one of the best nights I've EVER experienced-maybe that's the cocktails talking- no seriously, the show was AMAZING. Picture this- the BEST fashion in the Acadiana area, music, dancing, wild (and I mean wild) hair and makeup by local salons, and gorgeous models walking the runway. What you just pictured is the Lafayette Ind-Style Fashion Show. This fashion show is well known down here in Cajun Country and has been for years. I have to say it was an absolute HONOR to be one of seven local retail shops hand picked to do the show. The Independent prides itself on showing off the best of the best in Lafayette when it comes to fashion so we wanted to make our segment for HerringStone's of Lafayette absolutely PERFECT.
Well...that drive for achieving a perfect show got Hanna and I's wheels spinning. After receiving the invitation from the Independent Hanna and I sat down to discuss looks and ideas about what we wanted to include in the show. Then, it HIT us. Not only did we want to have exceptional looks walking the runway but we also wanted to go PUBLIC with the announcement of HeirLoom by HerringStone's! I mean HOW PERFECT?! Announcing our newest addition to the HerringStone's family during a live fashion show event would not only make our segment SPECTACULAR but It would also allow everyone there the chance to hear our exclusive news!
When the night of the Ind-Style Fashion show arrived, everything came together just as we pictured! Our looks were AMAZING, the models rocked the runway, and the reaction to our big news was just REMARKABLE! It was such an unforgettable night. Just like the night before Christmas feelings I referred to earlier, the night of the fashion show brought out those same feelings. Nervous, excited, anxious, and filled with absolute bliss I was able to FINALLY announce HeirLoom by HerringStone's.
Everyday since the show we have had so many people congratulate us about our newest addition and send so many kinds words our way. From Debbie, Cindy, Hanna and myself we all cannot thank you enough for your support and love! HeirLoom by HerringStone's is making progress by the minute-literally as I type, (eekk)! Stay tuned and keep reading because this is just the beginning of our journey.
