Lavenda for Anne Revere Launch Party Recap!

Last week we had the wonderful chance to celebrate a new line of jewelry to sell in our stores: Lavenda by Anne Revere!

We are absolutely in love with this line! When asked what inspired it, Lavenda said that it was a collaboration with her and her close friend Allie. It still has the classy, minimalistic style that Ann Revere Jewelry is known for, “but ours has an edgy, bohemian twist.”

Shoppers, bloggers, and Lavenda herself joined us at our Division store last Thursday to launch the line and enjoy a fun night full of photos, shopping, and cocktails!

Portland’s New Deal Distillery provided us with everything we needed for Ethan to serve up Moscow Mules, Gin & Tonics, Tequila Sunrises, and more for all the guests to enjoy!

We loved getting to see so many faces, like blogger Rachel on the left! And Allie, from Ann Revere Jewelry!

And of course stylists, such as Poppy Lyn!

Our own stylists spent all evening greeting guests and keeping the dressing rooms full!

Blogger Paige headed that direction to try on all of our new Elk arrivals!

What party is complete without a photobooth??? All photos were taken by the lovely Shauna Dullanty!

Lavenda and her good friend Laura goofing off for the camera!

Oh and did we mention that we had a makeup artist there to get everyone’s makeup ready for the weekend? Chloe did an amazing job!

This was so much fun and we were so happy to be joined by so many friends! Special thanks to everyone who came out to support us and Lavenda!

You can shop the new line at any of our Portland Boutiques!

How long have you been working here?

2 Years

What inspires your personal style the most?

Comfort! I love a good cozy sweater or a well worn in jean that I can wear everywhere and still look stylish!

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

My favorite part of Adorn is the lovely ladies I get to work with!

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? Why?

My favorite brand is Cupcakes & Cashmere! I love that their collection has everything from everyday tees to stylish jackets. All their pieces are classic and always end up being the most worn item in my wardrobe!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it?

My favorite summer trend is flowy dresses! On a hot summer day I love to throw one on and pair it with strappy sandals, a fun statement belt, and jean jacket for the evening.

Which designer inspires you the most? 

One of my favorite designers is Mariella Pilato. She’s an incredible jewelry designer based out of Bali and has astonishingly unique pieces that are inspired by the architecture around her.

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season?

Get yourself a pair of perfect fitting denim! Find a cut and style that fit your shape and you can build most of your wardrobe around it for the upcoming season.

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn?

My Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise Denim! These fit my body perfectly and I wear them everywhere!

Stylist/Retail Therapist

How long have you been working here?

Three glorious years!

What inspires your personal style the most?

Freedom, comfort, well made garments, fabric, fit on my body, ethnic, and European

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

My customers and my Adorners. It is a pleasure to work with beautiful women of all ages and sizes and styles. I absolutely love to dress our customers! And,  the truth is as I am 70 years old, I will only work where I’m happy and where I can do my best work because the inventory speaks to me. I appreciate the ethics and heart of the owners of the company. There is an atmosphere here that makes me want to come to work everyday.

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn?

I love Prairie Underground and Hard Tail and The O’Dells and Veronica M. Quality is key to me. The best part of Adorn for me is the curated variety! The best of the best for many ladies!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it?

I adore denim for all ages and sizes. A great pair of Premium Denim with a wonderful oversized sweater or tunic, huge earrings and a cuff bracelet! Good boots too! I adore accessories, and scarves from LA Made should be a must have for every woman’s wardrobe! A leather jacket over a very dressy cocktail dress is fabulous or a Fidelity jean jacket over and skinny tee from Hard Tail and leggings. Bold colors are also perfect accompanied by black!

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season?

Let yourself go out of your comfort zone. Try a color someone said you could’t wear. Wear jeans for a party with a fabulous Johnny Was velvet tunic and great shoes!

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn?

I hold my Prairie Underground Cocoon Jacket close to me! I have to love what I purchase and I love my pieces from Adorn!

Either an Elk bag I bought years ago, or my Betsy & Iya hoops that I wear almost every day.

Paying attention to my intuition, as well as the world around me.  I know what works for my body type, lifestyle, and age.  Currently my inspiration comes from my Social Science work at WSUV.

My advice (for every season) is to be appropriate.  Be true to yourself, and always be appropriate.
