One of my favourite things about my job is buying the jewellery for Plum.  Recently I had the opportunity to go to a huge trade show with jewellery from all over the world . It is so much fun to see all the different styles  from many different countries, there truly was something for everyone!

 In the last couple of weeks we got in some fabulous semi precious jewels from places like Thailand, India, and Nepal. Everyone in the design department was going crazy when it arrived! It has that great  tribal feel for the bohemian in us. We also recently got in some great little charms in burnished brass for those of us that sometimes like something a bit daintier.

 I have a ton of fashion jewellery that I've collected over the years.  My mom gave me a great tip on how to organize jewellery that is simple and inexpensive. She cut the lids off the egg cartons and sorted her jewels by colour and then stacked them.  What a great way to keep your special pieces sorted!

Check out our ever changing jewellery, I think you will have as much fun as I do… well almost.

The 4 Hottest Denim Styles at Plum

Follow

My goal when buying denim for Plum is to get the premium denim look for under $110!

Image

Arguably the most comfortable jeans you will ever own, everyone seems to LOVE their yoga jeans!  Each yoga jean design is created with a unique 5 way stretch and is made in Montreal.  This season we chose a skinny indigo clean wash with ankle zipper that seems to suit every body type.  The highrise slim overdyed black yoga jean is a reigning favourite at Plum, so we've brought them back for spring!

Image

Mavi is pretty much the most unpretentious premium denim for under $98!  The Molly style has been such a huge success that they've made them in bootcuts, skinnies, slims, and crops.  It's a style that is cut higher in the back and curves nicely to a medium rise in the front.  You could say that they have you covered!
My pick for you this spring is the Keira.  It's a cropped skinny in a great soft washed denim.

 

From April 28th until May 10th, $5 from every pair of denim purchased at Plum will go to Breast Cancer Research.  Details here.

"In May 1997, the CURE Foundation inaugurated NATIONAL DENIM DAY, its main fundraiser. This event is held annually on the Tuesday following Mother's Day. Businesses, organizations and institutions across Canada are encouraged to allow employees, members and/or students to wear denim and receive CURE’s ‘pink flower’ ribbon in exchange for a suggested $5 donation.

According to statistics from the Canadian Cancer Society, 23,200 new cases of breast cancer in women and 180 new cases in men were diagnosed in 2010. Of these, 5,350 proved to be fatal.

Wearing jeans has never been so important!"

 

From April 28th until May 10th, 2011, Plum will contribute $5 to the Cure Foundation for every pair of jeans we sell.  Get involved and don't forget to wear your denim on May 10th!

Have you thought of being a Big Sister?

Most of our customers know that Plum has been a Big Sisters sponsor and supporter for many years.  As one of Plum’s owners I have been on the Honorary Board of Directors.

Every May we do a fundraiser that has a prize draw but today we have a different message.

Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland needs your help.  Right now, there are an unprecedented 180 girls on the waitlist and we want to match these girls with positive, female mentors as soon as we can.  Through their supportive friendship, our volunteer mentors help to enhance the self esteem of girls (ages 7-17) who are facing many uncertainties and pressures as they grow up.  Many Little Sisters have difficulty believing in themselves.  Your belief in your Little Sister may be the pivotal change that she needs. Volunteer as a Big Sister or Study Buddy tutor!

 If you are interested in learning more about attending an information evening and shop night at the Granville store please email me at ed@plum.ca and I will be pleased to send you more information.

 If you cannot attend the event but want more information go to:   http://www.bigsisters.bc.ca/en/Home/Volunteering/VolunteerOpportunities.aspx

 Thank you for being a customer and a supporter of Big Sisters.
