About the book...
A Unique, Humorous, and Classy Guide Written by an Etiquette Guru Who Caters to the Unique Social Demands of the Citizens of Beverly Hills
In Beverly Hills, fame and wealth can buy everything-except class, grace, and sophistication. In 
24 Karat Etiquette, Lisa Gaché offers a behind-the-scenes look at Beverly Hills residents' unique social dilemmas through the eyes of an etiquette expert tasked with transforming her awkward, boorish, and sometimes challenging clients into social virtuosos.

It's hard to believe we are already in the thick of December and 2014 is peering just around the corner. First and foremost
, I want to take this opportunity to send you and your family the warmest of holiday greetings and best wishes for a healthy and happy New Year!
This past year has been packed with excitement and joy at Beverly Hills Manners.  After four long years of trying to get a book published, 24 Karat Etiquette: Golden Rules from the World's Most Glamorous Zip Code, was finally released and we couldn't be more thrilled or thankful!  To our delight, we have enjoyed a steady stream of press opportunities that have brought solid attention to the book. If you are searching for a last minute ideal gift or stocking stuffer, copies are available everywhere at bookstores, gift shops and online! 
Additionally, after months of toiling with ideas for an updated logo and website, we unveiled our new logo campaign, "Dare to be polite!" and launched a more visually pleasing and streamlined version of the site, both of which we hope will appeal to a broader audience.
As we prepare for twenty-fourteen, we are looking forward to an even more promising year ahead.  We will be hard at work updating the paperback version of the book with additional tips and advice to be released in October 2014!  As well, we are continuing to think outside the box and offering new etiquette coaching packages for Nannies, Nuptials and Interviewees. We will also be returning with a full schedule of our popular "Modern Manners" classes for children, teens and adults, and announcing a new location for our "Let's Dance!" cotillion program beginning in January. Stay tuned...
A most sincere thank you again for your continuous support this past year.  Be safe and see you in 2014!!
Very best,

Beverly Hills Manners, Inc.
