Well hello, September. In the fashion industry, this is the month of thick fashion magazines, must-read fall trend guides, New York Fashion Week, and for us here at Bliss, one of our biggest buying shows of the year - Coterie. There’s no denying it, we’re just 4 days into September & we have fall on the brain. Maybe it’s because we can hardly wait to trade our iced coffees for warm pumpkin spice lattes at Bard Coffee, or because we can’t keep our hands off our new cashmere sweaters... but whatever it may be, it’s safe to say that fall is officially here.
So, before we fully dive into our new season of coats, scarves, corduroys & leather boots, let’s take a look back at our summer here at Bliss. (It sure has been a good one!)
We entered the month of May on a high; our store celebrated our 10 year anniversary during the last weekend of April. We had a party full of things we love: gelato, Prosecco, our customers, free giveaways and a storewide sale (of course)! It was a memorable event that really set the tone for the months ahead.
Next up was our AG Trunkshow! With stacks & stacks of the latest denim styles, our AG rep in town, and a gelato cart, this event reminded us why we love summertime (oh, and AG jeans!). We’re already looking forward to bringing this event back next year.
One of the biggest highlights of our summer was being featured on Elle.com’s “50 States of Shopping!” In the article, Elle profiled the country’s best boutiques & we were selected to represent the state of Maine! Needless to say, we are super honored (and very flattered!) to have made their list. Thanks Elle!
July was full of sales, sunshine... and lots of online progress. Hopefully you’ve heard the buzz already - we’re launching an online store this fall! So what exactly does that mean for you? Regardless of where you live or what time of day (or night!) it is, you can shop our selection of designer denim, tried-and-true Frye boots, and those hard to find wardrobe favorites. We’re handpicking the best of the best and making it even easier for you to shop at Bliss!
Each year in August, we have our Skif Trunkshow - and each year (it never fails!) we find ourselves longing for sweater season. Being one of the first lines that Bliss ever carried, their sweaters (and other unique pieces) continue to get better & better with each season. This event showcases Skif’s vision, creativity and quality... all while giving our customers a one-of-a-kind shopping selection. It has always been one of our most anticipated events of the summer and was such a great way to wrap up an eventful couple of months.
There you have it - a little recap of our busy, yet fun, summer at Bliss. Thanks to all of you for making this our best summer season yet!
