Ah, August! The height of summer in Seattle. This is the month where you might have the opportunity to sit outside in the darkness of evening with a few candles, or twinkling lights and enjoy a drink or glass of wine without being cold!
We Seattleites live all year for this! Of course, it doesn't stop us from complaining that it's too hot during the day, and that we have to water our gardens (forget the lawn - it's a lost cause!) at least once a day. And there are many who sigh with relief when we get a bit of rain and it's overcast - it's our comfort level, after all!
In the store we see an up-tick in the number of people looking for wedding gifts, and pretty dresses and hats. We actually sell a lot of our Maralyce rainwear - perfect for traveling!
- and fun fabric purses, which are lighter than leather, and pack easily.
Summer is also when we get to meet our customers' guests, who are looking for gifts to take home, both for the person feeding the cat and for themselves. We always can suggest just the perfect thing, and wrap it as well!
Our Current Zents Favorite
SAVE 20% off Body Oil when you buy the Lotion! We'll even give you 30 days to come back and save - just ask for the coupon!
These two Zents products work wonderfully well when mixed together in the palm of your hand, being 3 times more hydrating and lasting 5 times longer!
Just pat out some lotion in the palm of your hand, spritz on some oil, pat to combine and luxuriate in the most moisturized, non-greasy, healthy-looking skin you can imagine!
Perfect for summer, and 10 scents to choose from! You deserve to look and feel Zentsational!
Have you joined our Birthday Club? We'll send you a gift during your birthday month, and a surprise when you come into the store. Next time you visit us, ask to be signed up!
