Summer at LUC.

Ooops. Sorry... (sad face) seems I got so busy with the Christmas trade that all blog posting went awry.
What a bumper Christmas and so much great stock kept arriving during this trade that it really was one of the busiest weeks ever for this little store.
So how about we just talk about what has arrived in store ready for summer.

My new clothing label for the store is LemLem -a NYC brand founded by super-model Liya Kebede. Soft linen, comfortable easy-to-wear summer styles that will take you from the beach to pool-side cocktails!  Liya Kebede is committed to supporting the economic independence of her home country and all the products are woven in Ethopia helping women into employment.

Get ready for outdoor summer parties with the brilliant collection of marble from Marble Basics.
Wine coolers, platters, trays, bowls and even some flowerpots will upgrade any BBQ into an instagram money-shot!

Another late arrival (but a goodie!) was a delivery of the marble candles from Candlelit. Three exquisite fragrances poured into polished Tuscan marble containers. (Lime+Sandalwood, Leather+Tobacco and Fig+Melon). The divine container you get after you burn your candle can be used in the bathroom, on your desk or even for holding utensils in the kitchen. Winning!

A big delivery of cardboard products from German brand Remember arrived just in time for Christmas - and not surprisingly, were a HUGE hit. Flat-pack cardboard stools (that hold up to 200kg!!) in bright colours and cool designs are only $37 - perfect for outdoor entertaining, bedside tables or in the kids' rumpus room. The waste-paper bins also come in a flatpack (these lasted only about 2 days in store - but more stock arriving end January!) at only $26 these will definitely brighten up a dull office or be a great pop of colour in the bathroom (don't forget Missoni towels can do that too...wink..!)

Christmas Eve was probably not the most ideal time to receive a delivery of Jai Vasicek tiles - but word spread pretty quickly and this gorgeous selection of his most popular pieces were snapped up pretty quickly. There are still quite a few remaining and in perfect time for Sydney-Hobart celebrations I have plenty of You Me & the Sea, anchors and boats in store (plus some awesome "good vibrations" palm trees and the most popular pineapple tiles). This delivery is mainly mini tiles and portholes - so jump in quick!

LUC. has been closed over Christmas but reopens on Tuesday 30th December for limited hours and will resume normal hours on the 5th January. Thank you everyone for such a fabulous Christmas trade and for making 2014 such a huge success for this little store. 2015 is shaping up to be quite the year for LUC. and not only will there be lots of new stock arriving and new brands to celebrate but some fairly big news as this space. Enjoy the sun - happy New Year! xx
