1. Well, it is Sunday afternoon here in Australia and I am gearing up for an epic Monday. For those of you who don't know - we were forced to close the shop twice in February due to an excessive amount of awesome stylish women buying our clothes.
First world problems, for sure.
And we're not going to shut again!
I can't 100% guarantee that, because girls might go crazy and buy waaaaaay too much stuff. But I think we're just going to hold tight and ride the metaphoric wave. Speaking of waves... AWESOME WAVE PICTURE!!!!
Yeah, I bet you never saw that one coming.
2. I got an email with this in it from my organisational peeps:
Due to the latest shark attack, we have had to rethink our strategies on how to keep all the little sharkies happy. We used to let them buy what ever they wanted (even if it wasn't actually made yet) then try our hardest to print it, cut it, sew it, snip it and pack it in a reasonable time frame.... obviously this was not working. So... our new system:
Everything that is up at our store is in stock - so orders can start going out ASAP!
If we happen to sell out of a style that we plan on keeping around for a while it will display as "CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK".
Styles that are limited on numbers and we will not be reordering are "LIMITED".
If we sell out of a size of a style that is "LIMITED" it will display as "SOLD OUT".
This means that sharkies won't have to wait too long for their orders to be packed, as they will only be able to order something that is already here. Although, do keep in mind that for every one packer we have a zillion orders... so it still might take a few days!
So NO MORE OVERSELLING! In other words, if we don't have it in stock, we don't sell it. That means that there will be a lot more 'out of stock' notices at the shop. In the past we let overselling happen so that girls didn't have to do multiple orders and we would just get the pieces in as fast as possible. That made things more challenging and complicated because we ended up with hundreds of half packed orders waiting on single items. Now, if it's not in our shop, you can't buy it. But, of course we will try to restock the pieces that have run out as soon as possible! (Also - insiders tip.... the Retro Gamers and the Bloodwings will probably run out quite soon. Then we'll try to get more in March.)
Also... NO MORE PRINTED SKIRTS! Whatever we have, we will be selling out of. We do have some Wallpaper skirts that were never released, so they will be released on Monday, and we will just sell what we have i.e. not many. (I'm still deciding whether the dresses will suffer the same fate).
To ease the pain for those who missed out on printed skirts, we have some other stuff for you to nom on:
- Trippy Chess Skirt (LIMITED)
- Velvet Mulled Wine Skirt
- Midnight Velvet Skirt (LIMITED)
- Bubblegum Pink Skirt (LIMITED)
- We will also be bringing back a few more Toxic Electro Leggings (in all three colours!) (LIMITED)
So I'll see you 4pm Brisbane time... and let the par-tay begin!
