Hopefully families across New Zealand with members in the Auckland region will be able to catch up this summer - an announcement for mid-December massive for us here at Hout & Co, with an immediate family members wedding in Northland in the "awkward week" between Christmas and New Years. Finally we found something to do in this gap! We hope all of you have started to make some exciting plans and to get away and recharge the batteries - don't we need it after this end to the year.
With Black Friday rapidly approaching, we have made the decision, instead of offering a sale which potentially (we find) has limited relevance to us Kiwis (who's not a fan of a sale though), we have decided to give away all profit made from all sales on Black Friday (26 November) to our charity of the month. We feel this will give you the opportunity to do some good with your purchase and support an essential charity, Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand. This charity was chosen by you at the end of last month for November, and it holds a special place in our heart as one of our founders has a sister who is recovering from Breast Cancer currently.
We would love for you to tell your family and friends about our Black Friday initiative, and see if we can spread some good around - we all know we need it.
With Christmas right around the corner, we have been working behind the scenes on a Limited Edition piece, our Pōhutukawa Hoops, just perfect for the summer BBQ or drinks with friends. We think they will be a great statement piece this season and are so excited to have been able to debut them this week.
Hand in hand with the Hoops, we have assembled the perfect gift for summer for your loved one - Our Limited Edition Pōhutukawa Hoops, and two waterproof pieces - our Motuihe Chain and Orakei Bracelet. These Hout & Co pieces are wear all-day every day, and combined with our Mulberry Silk scrunchie and Sandalwood candle, its a ready made gift. With options for 3 pieces of jewellery for $199.00, up to 6 pieces (3 of your choice) for a set $45/extra piece, we are giving you the flexibility to choose what you want.
We ran our 1000-mark follower give away on Instagram which finished last week, and what a response we had. The giveaway was won by Tracey from Wellington, who is enjoying her $250.00 of Hout & Co pieces.
The hint of summer is just around the corner - we hope all of you have a good couple of weeks coming up - remember its White Ribbon day on November 25, for the Elimination of Violence against Women - and that you all stay fit and healthy in our ever changing environment here in New Zealand.
Hope you are having a stunning week.
