“Jules For Mom” Custom Jewelry Event

There’s nothing more meaningful than a personalized gift, and even better when it’s one made by a local designer! If you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift…look no further.

On April 28, Jules Schwanbeck of Jules jewelry will be at Mark Shale helping guests customize her very popular initial ID necklaces. Customers can select not only the lettering, but also the shape, style of chain, and metal.  In addition to personalizing accessories by Jules, those who spend $300 or more at Mark Shale will receive a gift with purchase!


Because of the endless number of combinations, each necklace is made to order and customers can expect to receive their custom jewelry within 2-3 weeks (in time for Mother’s Day, of course). Jules will be available all day for meet and greet, product knowledge, and ordering assistance. She’s super awesome and her jewelry is amazing so I definitely recommend checking it out!

Rebecca Minkoff’s Mugly Bag Contest

We’ve heard of ugly, and even fugly…but what about mugly? According to the team at Rebecca Minkoff, a Mugly Bag is “an unpleasant or repulsive item used to carry or store mom things like checkbooks, coupons, tissues and Carole King CDs.” If you or someone you know suffers from owning a mugly bag, and you would like to benefit from it, please continue reading…

If your mother has a Mugly Bag, snap a photo of her wearing it and submit it to Minkette.com for a chance to win her a new bag. For being such a concerned son or daughter, they’ll send you a new bag as well!

Plus, from now until May 2nd, receive a free “Mamalicious” or “Pretty Mama” pouch with any purchase of $295 or more! Just enter code “LOVEUMOM” at checkout to redeem.
