Winter Wonderland....?

Well, unless trapped in a snow cave yourself you will definitely be aware we had a big old blizzard here in NYC and beyond. Wow did we see some white stuff! Unfortunately (as is always the case here in the city) it is now great piles of GREY stuff. Everywhere. Huge slushy puddles surround the gutters and sidewalks like moats and often you have to walk a block just to be able to cross.

However, we did have a white Christmas and that sure was pretty. For the New Year weekend we would love your comments below (with a little sweetener if you are obliged!). With each new year we like to freshen up our website and boutique. With the recession, increased online shopping and developing trends we always see potential for change and we'd love to hear what you think. Here's a small list of things we would LOVE your feedback on, please leave us your email address with the comment and you may be in to win this beautiful winter white pair of Pearl Clusters (pictured at the very top).

*do you prefer to shop by: style, e.g. clusters, drops or do you prefer to shop in groups; i.e. earrings, necklaces, bracelets etc, or maybe even by price?
* how often do you check our site for new pieces?
*do you like to be emailed often or just once, twice a month as a subscriber?
*would you prefer our classic mink section to be larger so many past collections are viewable or do you prefer what is new?
*how often do you drop by the store in NY if you live here?
*feel free to leave us any other comments!

We look forward to bringing you some great new features in 2011, thank you for supporting us through this year and remember to leave us your email address in your comments below!

WMJ signing out for 2010!


p.s. Thank you SELF magazine for this great necklace shot in the January '11 issue, we could do with the summery temperature too....

Festive Fun

Greetings all,

First up we would like to congratulate our auction giveaway winner: Sarit! And thanks to all you lovely ladies who participated in our latest blog auction, we hope you all had fun.

We've been busy little elves here at WMJ getting all your holidays orders out before Christmas (that's only one week away). Last weekend was our Huge Holiday Sample Sale and we had a blast seeing all our Wendy Mink fans make some great jewelry buys.

If you didn't make the sale no worries, we still have some discounted goodies in store on the counter pictured below:

There's lots of great earrings, bracelets and necklaces from $10-$70!

Below are some amazing hand beaded ornaments made in Haiti for the relief effort, we've decorated the store with them and you can pick some up for yourself at $30 each.

If you're still looking for special WMJ gifts come in and browse our Holiday Luxe collection designed exclusively for the store. Pictured below are a few of the stunning earrings and cluster necklaces Wendy specially put together!

Lastly, we would like to invite all those men who have yet to finish their holiday shopping to our Men's Night this Monday, December 20th. We will have personal shoppers, complimentary gift wrapping and drinks. Ladies, you're invited as well! We will also have a selection of Men's jewelry and accessories.
