My Friend Christy

This was a comment posted by our friend Christy.  We are grateful for all of our new friends and hope to make many more!  Christy, thanks for letting us share this story.   


I learned about "It's So Cherry" from a radio station I love to listen to. The ad was for some beautiful scarves that were very inexpensive. I already had a lot of scarves, but decided to log onto their website just in case I was smitten. Well I did, and I was. They had two colors available that really caught my eye because in my massive scarf collection, I was missing those two hues! I ordered them over the phone and looked forward to them arriving. A few days after I received a call alerting me of their arrival, my wonderful dear father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Jody was incredibly kind, compassionate and concerned. She even told me that she wouldn't mind meeting me somewhere to deliver them, as she sometimes drove to my area of the state for business (she lived about an hour away from me). Because of all that I had going on, it took quite a while to meet up with her, but she was just as kind and patient from the very beginning to the end. It was such a pleasure finally meeting her. Her level of customer service far exceeded what could even be called "customer service". I felt like she was a friend, and she certainly treated me that way. "It's So Cherry's" 'way' was spectacular...I'd never been treated so well by a company. And when I received the scarves, I was even more blown away--they were far more beautiful than I could tell from the photo on the website. I was expecting regular (pretty) knit scarves, but they ended up being those beautiful ruffled ones (I don't have any of those, and they are so feminine and gorgeous). They were exquisite! My experience with this company was absolutely wonderful. When I looked at the website today, I was excited about their products, and realized that the items they carry are definitely extra special and extra pretty. They have a knack for picking some fabulous stuff. What lovely fun!!!

I Want A BOSU Ball!

Let me just give you some insight about me.  I am a gym junkie.  For 90 minutes each day, I get to leave my sweet children at the gym playroom, put on my headphones and turn the music up loud enough that I can't even hear myself think.
However, I am always looking for a new way to challenge myself and crunches just don't really do it for me.  So, as I was searching for more ways to work my core I came across this youtube video and I have to say it is my new goal.  I have tried it, but can't do the last exercise.  Try it and see...can you do it all?  Any tips?  Let me know...thanks!

My Little Model

Over the weekend my little girl thought she would show us her modeling skills.  Yes, my three year old is so adorable!  We were so excited for the nice weather and to finally get out shorts, short sleeves, and flip-flops!
This is by far my favorite time of year.  Everything is getting green again, the flowers are blooming, the days are longer, and I can wear flip-flops again.  That means I had better give myself a pedicure :).
What is your favorite part about spring?

Rainy Day Woes

I love spring!  I love to get out my capri's, flip-flops, and short sleeves.   However, as we transition to warm weather it is difficult to move the kids activities back inside on rainy days.  It seems as if I have exhausted all of creativeness for inside activities during the winter months, and now I am searching for things to keep my kids occupied during the day.  So, I thought I would reach out to our cherry friends for help.  Anyone have any ideas for good rainy day activities?    Also, I thought I would ask, what are you most excited to pull out of your closet for spring?

What Women Want Expo

So, over the weekend Deanne and I explored the What Women Want Expo in SLC.  It was fun to see how everyone put their own spin on how to wear accessories, but it was especially crazy to see how all of the retailers priced it.  All I can is it definitely made our cherry deals look oh so sweet!
 We found these same handbags selling for $35.  Our cherry deal is $12
The flower necklaces we had on the site a month or so ago...$38.  We had them for $17 with earrings.
I think what we are trying to say is...DON'T pay retail, it's insane!!

Did you make it to the show?  What did you think?

Straight from the fashion mecca, New York, these handbags are amazing!   Deanne is in New York this week (business for her 9-5) and had to show me pictures of these handbags, the same handbag we will have on www.itssocherry.com Friday.  She saw numerous women carrying them around and found one that would let her take a pic, just not of her lol.

Handbags anyone?

  What do you think of these?  Super cute right!  Let us know what you think.



Pet Peeve!!

Can I get on my soap box for a minute?  It is one of my biggest pet peeves when I find a really great item like this and I know the cost, but I find retail stores selling it for outrageous prices.  I was doing some research and saw retailers selling this decorative planter for $44 and more.  There were stores that said they sold it for $26, but it ended up being something completely different.  I even saw a retailer selling it for $59, and that was ON SALE, plus the shipping was an additional $22!  It is these types of scenarios that gave us reasons to develop It's So Cherry.
Here's a soap box, tell us your shopping pet peeves.

Have you all seen these great wraps yet?  They are becoming widely popular this season, because of their versatility.  As shown in the photo's you can dress up the black dress that we all have sitting in the closet.  Wear it as a hipster, or me,  I am going to wear one with my bathing suit.

Easter

As this blogging thing is fairly new for me, I am excited to tell you all about me, and not always bore you with business.  
Holiday's are a fun time at our house.  My husband and I have our kids convinced that we have a direct phone line to the major players such as Santa, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy (not so much for holiday's, but still considered to be an important figure in the kids world).  It makes the days leading up to the holiday pretty nice.  They stay on their best behavior, but I think it's mostly for fear that I'll make that phone call and get their lute downsized.  I'll have to post pics of their hunt.  We are hoping to do it outside, pending the snow in the yard melts.  Yes, I said snow.  Welcome to Utah in April!  
Here's hoping for something good in everyone's basket!  Have some good pics from your hunt? Post your link, we would love to see them...we want to be blog buddies.

Sharing the "Cherry Love"



We never really thought we would put our hobby to work for us.  My mom and I love to shop.  We love to find great finds, but choke every time we see price tags.  Now, I don't consider myself cheap, but I have a young family and a husband who only recently finished school, so we do have a budget.  As you get to know us, you will soon find my mother has this amazing talent for always finding the greatest "stuff".
After many conversations, we thought we would share what we have found with all the ladies out there who are tired of overpaying for great accessories.  That's when we came up with It's So Cherry.  We are out finding great accessories for everyone (even the guys), and some for the house.  Most importantly, we are bargaining to get these great finds for "cherry deals" which we pass on.  There is only a limited quantity, so you have to get them fast.
Take a few minutes and get to know us.  We are just avid shoppers who want to find great stuff at better prices.  We'd love to have your input, so be sure to leave comments telling us what you'd like to see.
