Vahan’s Greg Der Calousdian is A Master of Design and His Newest Design “Nuvo” is No Exception 

NEW YORK, USA, 2017-Sep-11 — /EPR Retail News/ —  Greg Der Calousdian, VP of Design, has created a new look to join the company’s signature 14k gold floral beaded petal design.  The Nuvo look has clean and minimalistic lines that that will appeal to a more contemporary woman.   According to Greg, Nuvo is:

For the woman who is looking for something polished, smooth, and understated

The new design element is on rings, bracelets and earrings and can be seen in the Buckle, Le Cercle, Cross, Diamond Line, Halo, and Pavé Bangle Collections, with more collections soon to be added.

Despite this new design being a departure from the classic Vahan look, it still makes use of the signature two-tone gold and silver metals.  Nuvo also stays true to its classic look with the use of semi-precious and precious stones including Diamonds, Blue Topaz, London Blue Topaz, Rhodolite, Garnet, Black Onyx, Peridot, Chrome Diopside, and Citrine.

When asked what the reasoning was for the creation of Nuvo, Greg stated “Vahan has had tremendous success with our ornate petal design.  With Nuvo, I felt that it was time to appeal to a wider clientele. Nuvo features a sleeker alternative which is more tailored and contemporary.   It offers a forward-looking style that I think women will love.”

The Nuvo look is available August 2017 and starts at $1,000.  The line is available at various retailers throughout the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean.  A list of retailers can be found on the Vahan website at www.vahanjewelry.com.

NRF: Americans are expected to spend more than ever on gifts for Father’s Day this year

WASHINGTON, 2017-Jun-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Americans are expected to spend more than ever on gifts for Father’s Day this year with the biggest share going to special outings like a ballgame, concert or dinner, according to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insight & Analytics.

Father’s Day shoppers are expected to spend an average $134.75 for the holiday, up from last year’s $125.92. With 77 percent of consumers surveyed celebrating, total spending is expected to reach $15.5 billion. That’s the highest number in the survey’s 15-year history, topping last year’s previous record of $14.3 billion.

“It’s encouraging to see that consumers are spending on special occasions such as Father’s Day,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. “This is a positive sign of strong consumer confidence heading into the second half of the year, and a good deal for all the dads who will reap the benefits.”

The survey found 27 percent of dads would love to receive a “gift of experience” for Father’s Day — and 25 percent of shoppers plan to grant that wish with gifts like tickets to a concert or a sporting event. When dinners, brunches and other types of “fun activity/experience” are included, consumers plan to spend $3.3 billion on special outings, which will be given by 48 percent of those surveyed.

Next up on the spending list is $2.2 billion on gift cards (given by 43 percent), followed by $2.2 billion on clothing (46 percent) and $1.8 billion on consumer electronics (21 percent). Personal care products such as a bottle of cologne (21 percent) total $888 million, slightly edging out home improvement supplies (16 percent) at $885 million. Greeting cards are the most common gift, purchased by 64 percent of consumers, but only account for $861 million of projected spending.

“With shoppers planning to be more generous to dad this year, the personal care category will be one to watch,” Prosper Principal Analyst Pam Goodfellow said. “Planned spending on items like cologne, aftershave and razors rose nearly 20 percent year-over-year, outpacing growth in every other gift category for Father’s Day.”

When searching for the perfect gift, 40 percent of consumers will head to department stores, 34 percent will shop online, 26 percent will shop at a discount store, 24 percent at a specialty store and 19 percent at a local small business. Among smartphone owners, 33 percent will use them to research gift ideas but only 18 percent will use them to make a purchase. Tablets are used slightly less frequently to research (32 percent) but slightly more frequently to buy (19 percent).

More than half of those surveyed plan to buy for their fathers or stepfathers (54 percent) while others will shop for their husbands (29 percent) or sons (10 percent).

The survey of 7,335 consumers was conducted May 2-9 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.2 percentage points.

9 Christmas Gift Exchange Ideas to Trim Your Holiday Spending

NEW YORK, 2016-Dec-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — Here are a few alternative Christmas gift exchange ideas from Coupons.com savings and consumer trends expert Jeanette Pavini for you to create a fun experience while keeping your holiday spending in check. You can find even more ways to save on our Coupon Codes page and more savvy ideas on The Good Stuff!

  1. Pick a secret Santa. This game is a classic, but by only giving one gift to a family member, you can focus more on the gift-giving experience (and picking out something extra special) rather than spending money on several gifts that may or may not hit the mark. You can even up the ante by asking family members to leave secret notes and treats for the person whose name they’ve drawn leading up to December 25. Be sure to put a dollar limit on how much each person can spend on the final gift given on the holiday!
  1. Make a coupon book for family members. I love this idea because it’s personalized and can be a lot of fun depending on how creative you get! These coupons can be for “Making Your Bed for a Week,” “Doing the Dishes for 1 Week,” or “Letting You Pick the TV Show We Watch.” Choose simple things that can make other family member’s life a little easier or a little more fun!
  1. Set gift expectations early. It’s important to set gift expectation for kids early on. Let them know that even if they have a long wish list, only a few presents will show up under the tree. You can make this into a learning exercise by having your children prioritize which gifts they really want. Have them rate each gift idea by putting stickers next to them on the list, coloring in stars, or writing out why they want this particular gift more than others. You can also help your kids choose a couple toys they already have to donate to charity. This kind act makes room for a few new ones while teaching them about giving and sharing with others.
  1. Take a family trip or staycation. Instead of spending money on everyone’s presents, use the money for an outing. It can be as simple as a local trip — you’ll even find some good deals during the week between Christmas and New Year’s while the kids are still on vacation. Even if you just travel to a nearby town or a local park, it’s the act of getting away as a family. Too stressed to plan a family trip? Check out this list of easy family staycation ideas!
  1. Let your kids do the shopping. If they’re old enough, give your kids a set amount of cash, allow them time to search for deals and coupons, and then let them shop away for gifts for family.  The cash will help them learn the value of every dollar and how to stay within a set budget, plus most kids love the thrill of shopping on their own!
  1. Give back as a family. You can sponsor a family in need by making a donation through Heifer International. As a family you can provide a gift of a cow, goat, or chickens to a struggling family from another part of the world. You may also be able to sponsor a local family through your local Salvation ArmyFamilies First, or even adopt a military family for the holidays through Soldiers’ Angels. It’s a wonderful way to feel the real meaning of the holidays and do something as a family!
  1. Trade favorite recipes. For extended family, have everyone make their favorite dish or dessert and attach hand-written recipe cards — one for every member of the family. Gather together for a family meal and swap recipe cards so everyone in the family can build their own family recipe book!
  1. Share a family photo collage. Photos are one of the least expensive and most treasured gifts, in my opinion, so why not build a family photo album together? Have each member of your family print up to 10 (or more if you like!) of their favorite photos from that year for each person in your family. (That would be six copies of each photo if you’re a family of six.) Then, share your memories while enjoying time together. You can also have each family member bring an empty photo album with them to fill with the photos they receive so they can look back on their wonderful holiday experience next year.
  1. Create a family gratitude journal. Grab a beautiful journal or inexpensive notebook and set it in a public place where every member of the family has access to it. Starting on January 1 or even as early as December 1, each person will write one thing they’re thankful for in the journal each day. In 2018, you can all look back on your thankful messages together!

Debenhams Announces 6500 Festive Jobs Up For Grabs

Debenhams announced that it is on the lookout for 6,500 seasonal temps to cope with its busiest time of year; Christmas.

Debenhams logo - links to home page

The retailer’s emphasis on flexible shift patterns will ensure additional staff are in store whenever customers need them.

Successful candidates will work with the department store from mid-November until the beginning of January, to cover the pre-Christmas spectacular through to the beginning of the January sale.

Michael Sharp, Debenhams CEO said: “These jobs are sure to be welcomed by local economies during the most financially challenging part of the year.

“Approximately a quarter of staff that works with us over the festive season will stay on in permanent roles, making this a crucial period in our employment calendar.”

The jobs will be split across Debenhams’ 163 stores and average out at 40 per store, and are based in the menswear, womenswear, accessories, childrenswear, home, gifts or cosmetics departments.

To improve efficiency and productivity, Debenhams is also hoping to re-recruit temporary staff who worked for the retailer last year in around 30% of stores.

“It’s fantastic that we have the opportunity to give some of these young people valuable retail experience.”

Minister for Employment, Chris Grayling added: “These roles offer invaluable retail experience for first-jobbers whilst giving those with families the flexible working hours they need.

“We are committed to injecting new life into the economy and this is a great example of how major players in the private sector are playing a key role in that.”

Contracts will be for flexible working hours with the majority of positions running from November through to the January sale.

Staff will benefit from a Debenhams discount – the perfect perk for saving on Christmas shopping.

Ernest Jones Launches Ernest Jones Love & Life

Ernest Jones is changing the way it describes itself – the jewellery and watch brand will now be known as Ernest Jones: Love & Life. Still maintaining its specialisation in diamond jewellery, luxury watch brands and fashion brands, Ernest Jones is focusing its attention on the special occasions behind customers’ purchases – for those love and life occasions.

The new description of ‘Love & Life’ is about celebrating those moments that matter in life, whatever the occasion, weddings, achievements, birthdays, or new arrivals. By introducing ‘Ernest Jones: Love & Life,’ the jeweller is keen to re-emphasise the importance of the emotional connection with the brand and the reasons why customers purchase diamonds, watches and fashion brands.

Customers can experience this now at Ernest Jones: Love & Life Exeter and the new Westfield Stratford City store which are already providing customers with a new shopping experience with more space for one to one customer service and a more luxurious interior décor.

Signet and Ernest Jones marketing director Colin Wagstaffe said: “Our new proposition ‘Love & Life’ reflects the fact that every item of precious jewellery or prestige timepiece that we sell to our customers is bought to mark an important moment that matters to them in life.

This can range from occasions like an engagement, wedding or Christmas to a big birthday, a milestone anniversary, the arrival of a newborn or a treat to oneself for that hard-earned promotion.

We wanted a simple yet meaningful proposition and description of the brand which demonstrates the role that Ernest Jones proudly plays in peoples’ lives. We are here for their love and for their life.”

The high street jeweller wants to be recognised by customers as an affordable luxury shopping destination – somewhere that their personal story and experience is valued.Jewellery is a thoughtful purchase, and a special one that customers take time to make a decision about. When a customer buys an engagement ring from Ernest Jones, the brand becomes part of that customer’s love and life journey, associated with their happy times and essentially part of those significant moments that matter to them. By emphasising the importance of the customer’s individual journey through good service, beautiful products and an inspiring shopping environment, the brand aims for customers to return to Ernest Jones for future gifts or special occasions to come.

To further explain the Ernest Jones new definition, more personal lifestyle imagery capturing life’s important moments that customers can relate to will be displayed along with emotive messaging within POS, in-store brochures, online and emails.

Ernest Jones’ expert staff are trained to the highest standards and offer bespoke services in store including the workshop for bespoke designs and Jewellery and watch repair – Atelier. The Atelier service offers a variety of prestige watch and jewellery services carried out by highly skilled Atelier technicians. They use classic techniques and state of the art equipment to repair, service and maintain timepieces and jewellery to the highest standard. All Ernest Jones stores have a dedicated Atelier technician either onsite or within the local area.

After 60 years – a diamond anniversary – of working with many prestigious brands, Ernest Jones brings customers watch brands including Cartier, Rolex, Breitling and Tag Heuer. Ernest Jones has a range of diamond, fashion and gift brands including bead and charm giant Chamilia, DKNY, Ted Baker and specialist diamond jewellery brands LeVian, Tolkowsky and Leo diamond.

Great Last-Minute Gifts To Save Christmas

Yet somehow, it has a way of sneaking up on each year us when we aren’t quite ready. Before we know it, there are about a million parties, events and celebrations to attend. Commitments with work, family and friends pull us in several directions, and we still have to buy presents. Even when you plan ahead, there always seems to be at least one person who you forget.

Debenhams Launches Ultimate App For Shoppers On The Move

Time-poor consumers can now shop with Debenhams directly from their mobile whether on the morning commute or waiting for friends at the pub.

Even the Saturday shopping excursion is transformed by the Debenhams mobile app, saving customers both time and money. The innovative ‘Barcode Scanner’, the first by a high street retailer, uses the phone’s camera to snap product barcodes, automatically checking pricing and reviews. Buying via the app avoids queuing and means products can also be saved for a post-payday splurge.

Simon Forster, Online Trading Director for Debenhams said: “This is the app that every shopper has yearned for. Acting as a pocket personal shopper, downloading the Debenhams app means that getting lost, not being able to find your size and having to carry heavy bags home are pitfalls of shopping trips past.

“The ultimate shopping companion whether at home, on the bus or pounding the pavements, this is the app that could put Trinny and Susannah out of business.”

Customers no longer have to scroll endlessly through reams of products online. The app’s personalised ‘My Debenhams’ tab narrows down the selection of items displayed by type, brand, colour, price and size.

The ‘Wish List’ and ‘Gift List’ features have been designed to help shoppers cope with their shopping, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. Savvy users can email friends and family with their very own wish list of gifts created by scanning products in store or selecting via the app.

They can also organise their own shopping by using the gift list tab to allocate products to friends and family in their address book.

Top Gift Ideas For October 2010

Gifts Guide UK reviews the top gift ideas from all of the leading gift retailers, choosing the best gift ideas to make your present buying easier. This month we’re going to look at novelty gifts as there have been some great products launched onto the market in this genre.

Tipped as a potential Christmas best seller, Dave The Funky Shoulder Monkey is definitely one to watch. Dave is essentially a robotic monkey that interacts with kids and big kids alike through the clever use of a secret remote control. Dave can shake hands, give high 5’s, sleep, cry, burp and pass wind, along with many other actions which really give him a personality of his own.

Leading toy retailer Hamleys have identified Dave The Funky Shoulder Monkey in their top ten toys for Christmas and manufacturers are concerned they are going to struggle to meet demand making this one of the most sought after toys of the year.

Next we give you Fairy Jars, which as the name would suggest are jars that look like you’ve managed to catch the fairies from the bottom of the garden in them. Through the clever use of solar powered LED lights these jars really do look magical with the six LED lights which gently fade in and out creating a truly beautiful ambiance.

Hang them from trees in your garden, use them to light up pathways or simply keep them on your windowsill, the fairy jars are a gift idea that will certainly get your friends and loved ones talking.

The last of our top gift ideas for October 2010 is the My Scratch Map. This clever poster has a gold foil layer on top of the world map which allows you to scratch off where you have been in the world, subtly letting you boast to all your friends about all the great places you have been to.
