Revealed! Adrian’s March VIP BOX

21 02 2018

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! Do not proceed if you want your March VIP BOX to be a surprise! We’ve been busy working with our suppliers to bring some great items together for your March VIP BOX!

800x800-8

Our March VIP BOX will arrive in this bright, lime green package, and we think you or whoever you’ve chosen for this month’s BOX will love each and every item!  We have had such positive comments from our ViP BOX clients! Here are just a few…

“Can’t wait for the next one!” ~Shelly S
“Hi Vicki – I LOVED the box & everything in it! Thank you!” ~Lori J.
“Love the Gift Box!” ~Wanda W.

This has been so much fun! I absolutely LOVE the stories that we get to hear about our VIP BOXES. We have one client who is surprising different people in her workplace with a box each month…and no one knows who they’re coming from! I love that!  Another out of state client is sending to her precious granddaughters that are in college. We’ve also had several clients book VIP Boxes for teachers, sisters, mothers and friends for “Just Because”, Birthdays, and Anniversary Gifts. We’ve also had a few husbands order these for their wives…how sweet!

“I loved my box! Can’t wait ’til next month!” ~Michelle F.
“The socks were so warm and cozy. I had them on all day yesterday.
Mine came from a
co-worker and brought tears to my eyes.” ~L.M.

Our first round of VIP Boxes went out as promised on February 7, 2018, and they went all over the country!  Boxes went to Washington State, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, Florida, and of course, many right here in Kansas!

So, again, if you want your March ViP BOX to be a surprise, then don’t scroll down any farther! Here it is…

800x800-10

People have asked us how we choose the items for our ViP BOX. Well, it is absolutely a team effort here at Adrians! We brainstorm ideas of what would be a great theme…new products that have arrived that we really, really, really like…old favorites that we can’t live without, beautiful colors, appropriate for all ages, and then we start “playing” with the box. So fun!

 To Order NOW just CLICK HERE or go to ShopAdrians.com

So are you ready to see the March Box? Here are a few of the items we featured…

These are a few of the items we have chosen for the MARCH VIP BOX.

  1.  Our Swedish Wet-it cloths are Swedish-made high quality products that easily last for six months. Although common in Sweden, these cloths are new to the American market and are quickly becoming a “must-have” here. Do not miss out!

    This light-weight cloth absorbs 15 times its own weight! There is no need to use paper towels to wipe up spills when using a Wet-it cloth.

There are endless uses. They are great for general household cleaning from kitchen cleanup to bathroom scrubbing. Wet-it cloths clean windows without leaving streaks or lint and polish silver without being abrasive. They are even gentle enough on the baby. Create your own favorite use!

  • Toffee to Go… From family recipe to family business, we bring you “Toffee to Go,” a sweet treat you will love at first bite. Toffee to Go is made with only the finest ingredients. Each batch begins with farm fresh butter, premium chocolates, California almonds and Georgia pecans. Their toffee is still made by hand in small batches.
    Toffee to Go has been honored as “Best Chocolates”, “Best Candies”, “Best Desserts”, and earned us favored status from the editors of Fancy Food Magazine, celebrity wedding and event planner, Colin Cowie and Oprah Winfrey! and
    NOW by Adrians VIP BOX!

    More from our customers…
    “WOW! The presentation is incredible! Love the rose! How about occasion boxes… Birthday, New Baby, Graduation, Retirement, Spa, Kitchen, etc…” ~Lori C.
    “So fun! I loved everything in the Box! Can’t wait for the next one!” ~Jan H.
    “I loved the items that were included…
    especially the jewelry, flashlight & chocolate!” Susan T.

  • You Are Amazing! {Remember That} Flip Book. This little book is filled with 100 pages of positive thoughts and encouragement.  Keep it on your desk, by the kitchen sink, or wherever you will see it throughout the day.  I believe that we MUST fill our minds with positivity as what we “put in” determines where we will go in life!
  • Kuhn Rikon Peeler…This is not just any old Potato Peeler.  It won Best of the Best in the tough Cooks Illustrated Test Kitchen, and I (Vicki Adrian) have used this peeler for the past several years! We think, even though it is an everyday item, it is exceptional enough to include as one of our March VIP BOX items.”Maybe the wartime cartoonists who depicted military KP duty weren’t directly commenting on how punishing it can be to peel vegetables with a lousy tool, but the images of grimacing soldiers surrounded by piles of potatoes suggest the same point: that dull, inefficient peelers make a mountain of tiresome work out of a simple task. ” Read more from the article here:  Cooks Illustrated Vegetable Peeler WINNER

IMG_14685.  Of course, these are not ALL of the items that will be in your March VIP Box, we’re also including our all-time best selling, O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Cream. It’s not sexy, it has no fragrance, it’s not pricy… but boy oh boy…it does WORK!  It has been so dry here in Kansas that everyone is complaining about dry skin. We thought it went perfectly with our March “wee ‘bit ‘o Irish” theme, since it probably has some Irish roots with a name like O’Keeffe’s! You use just 1/2 teaspoon for both hands.  Rub it in well and do this twice a day. It will heal rough, dry, cracked, painful hands. Promise! It does not, however, jump out of the jar and apply itself…You do have to use it! 🙂

6.  Irish Pub Potato Soup Mix by Wind & Willow.  We have sold Wind & Willow Gourmet Mixes for over 10 years now, and it is the only gourmet company we will buy an item from without tasting it first…it’s that good…it’s that consistent!  Again, this delicious soup is a perfect fit for our March BOX and we know you will enjoy a hot bowl of soup on a cold, blustery March night.

We might have a few more surprises in your box! You never know what you might find!

Who do you know that needs to feel like a VIP for a day? Maybe it’s YOU! Maybe your sister, or mom, or daughter, or co-worker, or someone who continually gives to others yet doesn’t get many special treats in her life.  Our VIP BOX is designed to WOW! SURPRISE! DELIGHT! and is so much FUN to receive in the mail!

Here is the March VIP BOX unveiled… (Broccoli Cheddar is stand in for our Irish Pub Potato)… We think you will LOVE your MARCH VIP BOX!

How exciting it will be when a bright red (or pink, blue or purple) box arrives “out of the blue” to someone you care about! It has been so interesting to listen to our clients tell about the people they are sending these boxes to. One is sending to her college roommate who is battling cancer in another state.

Ask the Experts: 18 Trends, Tips & Tricks for Winter 2018

5 01 2018

 

Screenshot 2018-01-05 13.52.19This week, The Hutchinson News featured an article that highlights 18 Trends, Tips & Tricks for Winter 2018 by none other than long-time Adrian’s Boutique owner, Vicki Adrian. (Me!)  I thought some of our customers that are out of the area might want to read it, so here you go!

Ready or not, 2018 is here, and Vicki Adrian, owner of Adrians Boutique in Buhler has some insights to help you enjoy the winter season. This year it’s all about comfort, and whether you’re refreshing your home after packing away the tinsel and garland, doing a closet purge, or cooking a favorite cold weather soup, comfort is king this winter!

Screenshot 2018-01-05 13.54.25FASHION TRENDS

  1. January Clearance Sales are on, and it’s a great time to pick up some new accessories to perk up your existing cold weather outfits.
  2. Silver is making a comeback after a few seasons that have been all about gold jewelry. Time to bring back some of your favorites or shop for a couple of new statement pieces.
  3. According to Vogue Magazine, Denim is definitely back in style. From jackets to jeans and handbags, you’ll see denim all the way from winter into spring.
  4. Cozy Knits – the softer and more textured the better. Now is the time to layer soft tees with fuzzy sweaters, vests and jackets.
  5. Get “outside the box” and purchase one outfit that is a bit of a stretch for you. We don’t mean to go W-A-Y outside the box, just a couple of steps. Maybe try some leggings with boots and a tunic.
  6. Turquoise rarely goes out of style, as almost every skin color looks good in this color, but this winter it is front and center. Pick up a fun scarf or piece of jewelry that highlights this beautiful color.

Screenshot 2018-01-05 13.54.34A WARM WELCOME HOME

  1. In today’s hectic world, home needs to become an escape from everyday stresses, digital overload, and harried lifestyles. Establish cozy nooks within your home that include plenty of soft blankets, a lamp and a welcome place to just chill out and relax.
  2. Plan a family game night once a week through the winter. Whether you have little kids or are empty nesters, winter is a great time to unplug the technology and enjoy each other’s company.
  3. Brighten up your home with several candles (flameless or traditional) to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere during the long winter evenings.
  4. Lose the chemicals and clean your home using just water. We have sold the e-Cloth* line for many years, and with it, you can clean anything in you home using just water. You’ll get amazing results!
  5. Clean out one closet or cabinet each week this winter. This will give you a sense of accomplishment and a great head start for the traditional Spring Cleaning.
  6. Plan some down time to cozy up and read a good book. Visit your local            library and check out a book or two by a new author.

Screenshot 2018-01-05 14.01.49HEALTHY LIVING

  1. Eat at Home. Plan to have soup simmering on the stove or in the slow cooker a couple of nights each week. Check out Adrian’s Recipe Blog at AdriansBoutique.com for some delicious recipes shared by our clients.
  2. It gets so dry here in Kansas during the winter, and our skin can really suffer. Make sure you are keeping your skin hydrated by using natural products such as The Naked Bee’s* body lotion.
  3. Get some exercise! Buhler residents are blessed to have our brand new Buhler Wellness Center, but there are many other places to get your body moving in our area.
  4. Spend time with friends and family. The human connection can be the best cure for the winter blues. Use FaceTime to stay connected to loved ones who are farther away.
  5. If the budget allows, book a hotel with an indoor pool for a winter weekend getaway. A change of scenery is always good!
  6. Bundle up and get out and about this winter. Visit a museum, shop your local stores, take your dog for a walk or meet a friend for coffee.
