Enjoy holiday shopping at its best with products and services from WEV alumni while sampling fine wine.

Did you know this is “pinot moment” day? You’ve invited to participate in person or online, with friends, at a meetup, on twitter, facebook, or your favorite wine bar. Learn more about the Pinot Moment event here: http://pinotmoment.eventbrite.com/ Join or organize your own  meetup.com/pinotmoment like I did! Join pinot lovers and share YOUR pinot moment at a Holiday Soiree and Boutique! Wine will be served with donations going to WEV. You can also bring a bottle of your favorite pinot to share. We’ll be there from 3-8pm then we’ll head over to the Wine Rack for a little after soiree soiree.

At the Soiree you’ll find fabulous gifts including hand-crafted fine jewelry, gift baskets, travel comfort products, organic cotton artistic handkerchiefs, hair products, scrumptious gift baskets, maternity cloth, locally-made products, presents for your pets, and even poetry books and broadsides by yours truly, Gwendolyn Alley, head coach at The Write Alley.

Twenty percent (20%) of all sales will be donated to Women’s Economic Venture (WEV) to meet a $200,000 funding gap. WEV is a nonprofit organization that is building our economy by supporting small businesses through training, loans and counseling. WEV clients created 618 new jobs in 2008 and 2009 alone. The majority of vendors at the holiday sale are WEV graduates.

Saturday’s Special Events: Socialize, Network, Shop!

5 Nov

Today will be a busy fun day: meeting with a new client about blogging in the morning, then lunch with some of the most amazing women in business I know (Jodi Womack Hilary Forstadt JilerTea Silvestre, and possibly Donna Van Hoesslin), then my husband and I are going to the Santa Barbara Bowl to see Massive Attack and my favorite, Thievery Corporation! (Above is Thievery Corp’s “Lebanese Blond” to celebrate my being blond once again! More on that next week…)

Saturday will be great too: The Ojai Film Festival is happening this weekend and they asked Jodi Womack and the Women’s Business Social to join in the festivities at Libbey Bowl near the Gazebo from 1-3 for a meet and greet with the women participating and showing their work at the Festival. It’s free! Just bring your self, your female friends, your smile and your business cards! (I’ll have my book marks and books with me too!)

Saturday night from 6-9pm I’ll be helping set up for fellow Women’s Economic Ventures classmate and graduate Talia Wunder’s Jewelry Show and Business Launch at the Santa Paula Museum 117 N. 10th St, Santa Paula, California.

At the Women’s Conference, I wore a necklace and earrings that Talia designed (as seen in the video below).

Talia will donate 10% of all sales to the Santa Paula Art Museum and Women’s Economic Ventures (WEV). I’ll have some of my books and plenty of bookmarks too; I will donate 50% of any sales to WEV and the Museum.

Talia chose to have her business launch and jewelry show at the Museum because her jewelry is all handcrafted in Santa Paula, California by Talia herself. All of her Devone Design Jewelry is made with high-quality materials including semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, 14k goldfill (lifetime-bonded 14k gold) and pure Argentium 930 Silver (virtually tarnish resistant).

Talia offers what she calls “Perfect Fit service” because she will adjust the length of necklaces and bracelets and change earrings to clip-on or other earring post styles.

Talia started Devone Designs in 2009 to fill the gap between luxury fine jewelry and disposable costume jewelry. Individual design inspiration comes from the stones themselves. “I see, touch and feel all the genuine stones and pearls before deciding to design with them, and it seems that they all have a story to tell,” says Talia.

Talia’s jewelry is are perfect for professionals: not too fancy or ritzy–very classy and classic. They look as original as you are!

I recommend you do what I did: bring with you that item of clothes that needs just the right accessory! Before the Women’s Conference, I brought over the clothes I was planning on packing and she helped me select two necklaces and a pair of earrings that allowed me to pull my looks together in the way that jewelry does best.

See Talia’s jewelry in person or online  www.perfectfitjewelry.com or call Talia at 805-312-1845.

PS She even named one of her jewelry lines after me–it’s the Gwendolyn line! Really! Beautiful stones set to show off their natural beauty!
