Such a great day!!

Well, today was like Christmas for me. 

We have been doing a lot of planning for this new year. What we want to do for new products, deciding on new display pieces, searching for the best crop of dried lavender, new varieties of plants and more. One of the biggest 'mores' has been working on our new look for our business correspondence. This includes everything leaving our shop with our name on it, signage, logo, attire for employees- everything. 

I posted earlier in January regarding the new business cards and today they came!!!! This is probably not exciting for anyone but me and Jessica. But our business cards arrived late this afternoon- personally delivered to us by Tom from Allegra Printing in New Albany. They are beautiful!!! Jen designed them and he did an amazing job of getting them printed exactly as I'd hoped they'd be. So, now we have our new business cards and the rest of the paper items will be coming shortly.

Along with that, as of March 1st. we will no longer have our lavenderhillflorals.BIZ site. We have researched the traffic on the site and found that we'd rather have everything on one site. So, as of March 1st. will be the site to go to and if you'd like to order flowers or look at some of the flower photo samples and other items available for purchasing.. you can also get there thru this blog. Just click on the area in the top right of the blog. That will get you to our Direct2Florist page.

Also some new things available for delivery will be Celebration Cakes or Cupcakes. These can accompany a simple arrangement or anything else coming from our shop. If you would like to send Cake or Cupcakes for any occasion, we would like a 24hour notice. We will have more info on flavors, cake/serving sizes and hopefully photos on the next blog post. 

We are excited for all of the new things  arriving before the Spring Fling in April. Saturday, April 4th to be exact, from 10 am 'til 3pm. Well, that's all for now. Check back again for another post. Thanks for stopping by.

Something for March....

Our small token of appreciation... if you purchase your Valentine's Day flowers with us this week-you will receive a "Love Note" good for one free rose during the month of March. 

We know you can go anywhere to purchase flowers. When you come to Lavender Hill.. we know that means you expect excellent flowers and excellent service. So with that, we want to continue our good relationship with you.

Come back in March..if not sooner, and present the "Love Note" and continue the love with another rose.

Did you know ??

Did you know, when you place an order we can email you a photo of what we sent? Yes, that's right.

Why are we doing this? Well, because we know many times the floral sender never gets a chance to see what's been sent. We do get many calls from people not in the local area. They may be calling for a delivery for a special occasion they may not be able to attend-- perhaps a birthday, anniversary or funeral. So, if you give us your email address we'll send you a photo of your floral gift. 

The only time we may not be able to do this would be for a super busy holiday like Valentine's Day- and that is only because of the volume of orders coming in and the time frame for delivery would be a little prohibitive.

We've chosen to do this because we want you to be confident with what is being sent out with your name one it. But remember, it has our name on it too.  So, if you look good, we look good. It's as simple as that.

Enjoy the weekend.. and don't forget Valentine's Day is next Saturday the 14th. For a longer romantic weekend, send your flowers on Friday.
