HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I'm a little late-sorry. HeirLoom has taken over my life and I couldn't be more pumped about this new venture. After ringing in the new year, (a little too hard...oops) I realized I still had not yet made my New Year resolutions. So I started to do some thinking.... Do I need to make a resolution to go to the gym everyday? Yes, but sometimes sleep is more important. Do I need to go on a diet and loose all the excess holiday weight? Absolutely, but my sweet tooth always gets the best of me. Should I make more of an effort to save money? Well duh, but new shoes are always the right answer. Naturally, my "go-to" new year resolutions were not sounding up to par. Then I realized something. This New Year is so much more for me than any previous year for one simple reason: HeirLoom by HerringStone's is OPENING and I will be co-owner of this AMAZING store! (Insert 1,000 smiling emojis).The fact that my lifelong dream is only 3 months away from becoming a reality made my New Year resolution clear.
Instead of stressing over making it to my morning workouts, I'm going to be stressing over whether or not I have checked in all of our new arrivals for the store. Instead of telling myself I need to eat healthier, I'm going to be telling myself to order more Free People because my customers are going crazy over it! Instead of attempting to save more money, I'm going to...well hopefully save more money. My point is, my mind will be spinning with merchandising ideas, market trips, sales, and new arrivals and I cannot wait! Making HeirLoom by HerringStone's a successful business will be my ultimate New Years resolution. In fact, this will be my greatest resolution to date. Every ounce in my being wants this store to be the most successful business it can be and I am going to make sure I do everything in my power to get it there! My life long dream has finally become a reality and there's nothing but positive vibes and good fortune heading for the future.
When Mrs. Cindy Stone and Mrs. Debbie Herrington began this journey 30 years ago I know they had their mindset on making HerringStone's the best boutique in North Louisiana and they have successfully accomplished their goal. When Hanna brought HerringStone's down here 7 years ago I know her mindset was to continue the family success and now she too has made the HerringStone's name something to remember. Now, with HeirLoom by HerringStone's looming (get it?) in the future, all of our minds are set on making this new addition the absolute best it can be. With these amazing leaders and business partners I have on my team I am 100% confident that my New Years resolution will come true and I'm so anxious to open our doors on April 1, 2017. The saying "New Year, New Me" definitely applies this year because I know I will come out of 2017 a new person due to all of the amazing adventures HeirLoom by HerringStone's will take me on.
It's only a matter of time until our doors open to the public and I may spill my coffee with excitement as I write this. We have started building our clothing racks, designing our store with some of the best interior designers, and have managed to grab some sneak peaks of our awesome spring merchandise. The walls are up, doors are installed, and you can even see a slight glimpse of the cutest little nook that will house our custom check-out counter. It's hard to believe that these small details will eventually turn into a complete store. I CAN NOT WAIT for you all to see it and shop with us. Speaking of shopping- you need to pay attention to what I am about to tell you.
