Dirty Hippy Swag officially launches their fashion line on April 20, 2017!

Oakland, CA, 2017-Apr-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Dirty Hippy Swag announces the official launch date for their fashion line: April 20, 2017!

Dirty Hippy Swag is an e-commerce startup, exclusively located online at www.dirtyhippyswag.com. With an ever-expanding collection, Dirty Hippy Swag specializes in comfortable street style apparel, as well as laser-cut designed and hand-beaded jewelry.

Founder and Designer Marisa Rheem believes in having clothes and jewelry that truly speak to her customers, making them feel safe and stylishly armored. As fellow millennial Madeline Harmon enthuses, “self-care and fashion have never looked so good!” It’s no accident that this company encompasses hoodies, sweatpants, and t-shirts: things we wear when we want to feel safe.

A fashion line emblazoned with cheeky, unwelcoming statements, Dirty Hippy Swag is the perfect platform to send a humorous yet powerful message. From their “Existential Crisis” sweatpants to their “Anti Social Club” necklace, Dirty Hippy Swag’s apparel and laser-cut designed jewelry allow you to clearly convey your mood to those around you without even needing to speak. Instead of feeling guilty and apologetic about needing time to unwind, slip into some Dirty Hippy Swag and let your clothes shield you from the outside world’s demands.

Oakland’s fresh new enterprise answers an unmet need for socially relevant fashion. Dirty Hippy Swag celebrates their customers’ purchasing power by transforming it into an opportunity to give back. By donating a portion from every purchase to trusted animal rescue organizations around the world, Dirty Hippy Swag bridges the gap between pursuing individual style and fulfilling our collective social responsibility as caretakers of this planet.

At the start of each new quarter, customers and fans can vote for their favorite animal rescue organization to become the next quarter’s beneficiary. This first season’s inaugural beneficiary is Rocket Dog Rescue, an all-volunteer nonprofit group dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned Bay area animals from euthanasia. Dirty Hippy Swag’s ultimate mission is to support the hardworking, silent heroes who dedicate their blood, sweat and tears to saving animals each and every day. By enhancing your wardrobe with Dirty Hippy Swag, you can help bring this vision to life.

New Research: Consumers Expect to Spend $422 on Holiday Gifts in 2016

FSB-Rect-transparent Logo

NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2016 — /EPR Retail News/ — New research undertaken by Fit Small Business has revealed trends around projected holiday spending this year. The study included questions on how much consumers expected to spend, their willingness to shop at small businesses, and reasons they may choose larger companies. The findings identified room for growth in marketing initiatives for the small business space, as well as overall support for local business.

Some of these findings included:

  • 52% of consumers plan to shop the weekend following Thanksgiving. Of those aged 35-54 surveyed, over 60% expect to spend $300 or more on gifts this holiday season.
  • Supporting local business emerged as the #1 reason consumers shop small, with 50% of respondents listing it as a major reason they would do so.
  • However, consumers are unaware of Small Business Saturday: over half (54%) said they had never heard of it, and only 15% said they planned to shop on Small Business Saturday.

David Waring, co-founder of Fit Small Business, commented on the findings, saying, “This research illustrates the work small businesses need to put in to make sure Small Business Saturday is a success for them this holiday season. While consumers are happy to support small, local business, they’re not always aware of initiatives to boost spending here. With marketing strategy from business owners it can be a successful and lucrative holiday season.”

This is a huge marketing opportunity for small businesses: Small Business Saturday offers small businesses the context to encourage consumers to shop small, allowing them to emphasize the most pertinent reason people do so – to support small businesses. The full results of the research can be found here.

Dealmoon.com: Multiple U.S. Retailers Reap $2M on Singles’ Day 2016

Singles Day on Dealmoon.com

Singles Day on Dealmoon.com

UNION CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 – /EPR Retail News/ — Dealmoon.com, the company that introduced Singles’ Day to U.S. retailers after Alibaba declared it an online shopping holiday, has caused it to mushroom into the new American Cyber Monday for luxury brands. On 11/11, Dealmoon.com attracted America’s largest luxury department stores and 250 brands to kick off their holiday selling season; some reaping $2M. With an estimated sales increase of 40% over last year, Dealmoon’s growth topped Alibaba’s reported 6% sales increase (from $14 to $17B) this year, and brands state that 70% of the Dealmoon-referred shoppers on 11/11 were new customers for them.

Dealmoon’s Singles’ Day page can be found at http://1111.dealmoon.com.

“54% of our sales were in the beauty category, 31% apparel, shoes and handbags, 8% electronics and 7% home goods,” said Jennifer Wang, CMO and Co-founder of Dealmoon.com. “In the fashion category, our customers’ most favorite products were Stuart Weitzman boots, Michael Kors MK handbags, a Burberry cashmere scarf, UGG boots, a Canada Goose parka, Prada and Burberry sunglasses, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers, Pandora Jewelry, Chloe bags and one of our all-time bestsellers: Salvatore Ferragamo pumps. In the tech category, our users favored Apple, followed by Dell, Microsoft, Samsung and Lenovo. The most popular brands in the home category began with Samsonite, then Philips, KitchenAid and Panasonic.”

Dealmoon.com attracts the “rising Middle Class” of mostly 25-34-year-old millennial shoppers of Chinese descent who, familiar with the Chinese-born online shopping holiday, have a propensity to spend on 11/11. Year-round, Dealmoon.com is a shopping destination for Chinese-Americans, however on 11/11/16, 61% of Dealmoon.com users were Chinese-Americans, another 29% from mainland China and the rest from those in other parts of the world.

“Our growth this year can best be expressed by saying that multiple retailers made over $2M in sales this Singles’ Day, which doubled sales records in 2015,” added Wang. “In general, we are seeing our customers interested in higher-end products.  Instead of a $49regular hair dryer, they are buying the newest $399 Dyson Supersonic hair dryer.”

Dealmoon.com, the luxury brand aggregator that serves a voracious 6M audience of Chinese shoppers, is now preparing for their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

About: Dealmoon.com is the gateway to 6M Chinese-American e-shoppers.  An aggregator of luxury deals served up specifically to this brand-hungry shopper, Dealmoon attracts 24M monthly visits, has 8.5M social followers and the mobile app has been downloaded over 3M times. With a stunning 516 Alexa rating, Dealmoon.com is one of the world’s leading cross-continental B2C advisory websites with offices throughout the U.S. and China.  Dealmoon’s shopping advisors make product recommendations on exclusives and deals in categories from beauty, apparel, shoes and handbags to electronics, nutrition, baby, home, travel and finance.  Some of the world’s loftiest brands and most revered retailers and e-tailers are offering deals there; in fact, a single posting on Dealmoon has decimated some brands’ entire inventories in a day or two. With its massive leverage, Dealmoon introduced China’s annual Singles’ Day to North American luxury retailers. The rapidly expanding shopping event has been featured in TIME magazine, NASDAQ, The Huffington Post, Luxury Daily and Internet Retailer. Dealmoon.com publishes more than 400 best-of-web deals per day in both English and Chinese. For more information, visit www.Dealmoon.com.
