Whale Birds?

Sometimes Elena comes up with quirky and unusual doodles like the two "whale birds" about..I figure, rather than keeping these wacky creations for myself I should share them with you so as and when Elena has an odd drawing I just might put it up here for your perusal...Some day some of the doodles might end up on a t-shirt, you never know...Any idea what to call the "birds" though - or does whale birds work?

Ohh Black Friday SALE!! Ram-a-jam

Ohhh Black Friday, ram-a-jam,
Prices so low, ram-a-jam,
Sales so good, ram-a-jam
Ohh Black Friday, ram-a-jam...

That is the little ditty that has been stuck in my head throughout the day as our Black Friday sale has unfolded (to the tune of Black Betty - below).. We kicked it off earlier today and were offering free "Stay Happy" illustrations to the first 10 customers as well as 30% off + free shipping..Happy to report that we've ram-a-jammed past 10 customers so there will be no more free illustrations but there is still 30% off for you with code blackfriday30 (oh so original I know)..

Thus far we have orders destined for the US, Ireland, The Netherlands, Canada, UK and France which is a nifty line up..Hopefully we'll be able to get some orders from a few more differnt countries, it helps me live vicariously and impresses the pants off the ladies in the post office ;) If you want to order head on over to our online shop, choose your threads and enter the code blackfriday30 - code will be valid until midnight on Monday..Needless to say if you could spread the word about our sale to a friend or two that would be immense..I don't expect you to be a fraction as passionate about LadyUmbrella as I am but any help is big time appreciated, you're helping the little guys which is always a good thing to do..

Anyway, before you rush off to order from us enjoy the tune below..Oh Black Friday, ram-a-jam...

A Tipple and a Tee...

How does a tipple and a tee sound to you? Tonight we're taking part in the The Beauty Spot with Lisa Lu which is happening in Dakota Bar in Dublin..It'll be good to have some face to face time with some customers (hopefully there'll be customers or else it'll just be face to face time with some tipples) as it's been a while since we've been out and about with our ladies t-shirts...If you happen to be in the city would love if you could pop in, not for us but to support the night - there will be lots of other nifty brands there and Lisa has gone all out to make it a great night...all we need is you! It's free in and you might even snag a bargain..Ole...

LadyUmbrella Lands in Kwilla!

Delighted to say some LadyUmbrella gear is now stocked and available in Kwilla in Kilkenny.. It's been a while since we've been stocked in a shop so it's kinda cool to be "back in the game"..

On Wednesday I bused it down to Kilkenny (bused it as I'm not one of those driving folk, have never really driven in my life, it would be handy though) to deliver the stock to Shannon, the owner of Kwilla. Upon arrival to Kwilla I was blown away with how dainty, quirky, charming and cool Kwilla was - not to mention it was laiden with lots of great items..A real shop that you could spend hours rummaging around and coming across lots of great things from Irish designers..Happy to say that we may now be rummaged upon and found..

What was interesting about the LadyU delivery to Kwilla is that it didn't include any t-shirts..T-shirts, to a degree, have been our "bread and butter" but this delivery hammered home to me how far we've gone in less than two years.. Instead of delivering t-shirts I delivered totebags, notebooks, badges and illustrations to Kilkenny - I did so wearing a t-shirt though ;)

Anyway, Kilkenny is a really lovely city..I was there before for a Twitter talk and highly recommend that if you've never been there head on down for a trip..And, if you do, sure you might as well call into Kwilla ;)

LadyUmbrella Pops Up in Project 51

Yesterday I had the pleasure of "sealing the deal" so that LadyUmbrella will be part of the Project 51 Pop Up Shop for the month of December. We're delighted that our wares were accepted and will be part of the pop up shop.. If you've never been in to Project 51 then you have to rectify that as soon as possible - it is a really nice place with lots of great Irish designers in there like Sinead Doyle, Jennifer Rothwell, Heather Finn & Yvonne Ryan.. Our ladies t-shirts will be there from December 1st so put that date in your diary...Will we be seeing you in there in December?

Hope you enyoy the video and many thanks for taking part if you entered and congrats if you won!! To make sure you don't miss out on any other giveaways or sales the wise thing to do is join our mailing list :) Ole..

Every now and again we like to run a little giveaway and today is one of those days...We've been preppin' stock for some Christmas (the C word, dun don dun) fairs and the likes and figured why not use the photo op for a fun giveaway... We took this picture yesterday and the question is: How many t-shirts hanging on the rail? We've just kicked off the giveaway and it's going to last for 24 hours and then we've a little video for you tomorrow where you can find out how many t-shirts are on the rail..You can enter by leaving a comment here with your guess AND the name of the t-shirt you'd like from our online shop or by doing so on our Facebook Page..Good luck & please, spread it around :)
