There are so many things to report for OLO this month...First, I'm excited to announce that OLO can now be purchased at Frances May! Located at 1013 SW Washington (around the corner from the Ace Hotel) Frances May is an amazing clothing store for men and women. Jason(OLO branding man) has his full line of PAUPER scarves there. They have a great assortment of clothing and jewelry. Also, Rachel Comey shoes...I'm saving my coins for a pair of those. Pam and Ashley are super sweet and will help you find something unique. The owner Pam and I are also working on ideas for the Frances May custom scent. Look for that soon!
This means two stores in Portland now have OLO, Nationale and Frances May. I'm working with both to make sure the scents they carry reflect their store's identity as well as their customer's. Nationale will house Jmaes, Violet/Leather and Nationale 6/7. Frances May will carry Valens, Forêt, Erastus and their yet to be determined custom scent. Victory Wolf will be in both locations as will Dafne. Perhaps both stores will eventually have the full line...time will tell.
I'm spending the Spring/Summer working on custom blends. I know quite a few women in town that own their own businesses. For the next few months I will focus on limited edition blends that capture the essence of these women and their places of business. Palace and Fieldwork Floral Operation are the two I'm working on at the moment. More about this later...
Check out Fieldwork Floral Operation's blog. Megan is a sweetness head and makes beautiful flower arrangements. I used to get all my flowers from her when we were both in the Pearl. She just opened shop in the Ford building on Division and has offered up a place for me to have a little lab to do blending! Just a place to meet up with clients sometimes and a shelf to put my pretties on. If you need flowers for your home, office, party, wedding or whatever call this girl!
That is all for now.
