THE HEADLINE: Elisabeth Ashlie will be on Summer Break for July and August 2017. The last day to place an order for the Summer is June 30th by 11:59pm CST.
I haven't had a traditional Summer break since 2012, so this is BIG. And, oh, there's nothing traditional about the Summer I'm about to have! If you follow my blog or personal Instagram (@the_laurenelizabeth), you know by now that my fiancé and I are getting married this Summer! We got engaged in November and are so looking forward to finally being married and starting that chapter of our lives together. July is basically erased from my calendar, at this point. Between the 4th of July with family, a road trip to our soon-to-be home in VA, our wedding and our European Honeymoon, it's going to be a wild Summer. Oh, yeah, and we're packing up all of our stuff and moving from Chicago to Northern Virginia basically as soon as we return from Italy. #whydidwedothistoourselves
We are both very excited for what the Summer is about to bring, but it means big things for Elisabeth Ashlie. Most importantly, Elisabeth Ashlie will be on Summer Break for July and August. What does this mean for you? That necklace you really want, a gift you want to buy for a friend, that mug you've been eyeing - make sure you order it by June 30th at 11:59pm CST. Starting July 1 at 12:00am, the store will be closed and you will not be able to make any orders. We will, of course, still ship any outstanding orders within our regular processing time. However, no new orders will be able to be placed starting July 1st. The plan is to reopen later in August, once I've settled into living with a boy and have been able to set up my new office.
You may have also seen that we've decided to close the virtual doors on The Dearly Box. You can read more about my decision to do that here, but the timing of it just made sense with how the Summer is shaping up to look.
What am I supposed to do without Elisabeth Ashlie this Summer?!
Plan ahead! I know, I know, the last thing you need right now is to plan your life 2 months in advance, but I promise it will be worth it! Have a girlfriend's birthday coming up in July or August, buy her Birthday Box by June 30th to have the perfect gift for her! Know someone who is having a baby this Summer? Order her the New Mom Box to show her some serious love after baby arrives. Getting married and want jewelry for your bridesmaids? Check out our collection and order before June 30th!
Don't worry, we'll keep reminding you of the order deadline, especially as it draws near, but we wanted to give you p l e n t y of time to order everything you might want/need for the Summer!
Thank you for making my job SO MUCH FUN that I'm actually sort of dreading the break from working. You guys are the best!!
Lauren, Owner of Elisabeth Ashlie
