Our annual trunk show, held Thursday Oct 24, was a huge success. Molly, our lead technician, was the winner of our in-office vote for this year’s trunk show theme with her idea for A Walk In the Park. Anticipation for the event grew in the days leading up to the show as she and her team decorated the office with bicycles, autumn leaves, kites and large (faux!) ants clinging to the walls.
We were not the only ones looking forward to this year’s event. The moment the door opened we were welcoming those who wanted to browse and make their selections before things got too crazy. Vicki, representing Kenmark frames, brought the entire line of Vera Wang frames and these were a big hit with staff and guests. It was also wonderful to have Nancy, from WestGroup, Inc., displaying all of her Fysh and Kliik frames. Her expertise in frame fitting and selection was much appreciated on that very busy day.
Our team of opticians, led by LaRae, did a fantastic job of assisting everyone that stopped by to see us. The day ended with everyone happy and exhausted.
The highlight of the day for many of our youngest guests came late in the afternoon when the bouncy castle was set up and the popcorn maker filled the air with the most wonderful aroma. That evening was also the Monticello Downtown Association’s Trick or Treat night, so we had all sorts of princesses and super heroes enjoying treats and wearing off some of their “sugar high” in the bouncy castle. Our neighboring businesses also planned special promotions for the evening, making Monticello, MN’s Hillside Mall a very popular stop for the evening.
Now, the main trunk show event is over and the decorations are put away, but for us the fun continues. This week all the new orders are arriving and everyone stops in again to pick up their new glasses and have a final fitting done.
Thank you to everyone that came by to shop, browse or just to say hi and pick up some treats. It was great to see you!
See you next year!
