Hi all and many thanks for your comments last week – Marian I wasn't avoiding you or your freshly baked buns – I was going through the 'Garden Re-Leaf' show with Richard Jackson, as you correctly surmised.
On that note thanks to all who supported that show – I'm not sure of the final figures but I understand we easily broke the fund raising target we had set ourselves. So a huge thank you from both QVC and the Greenfingers charity for your purchases and a huge debt of thanks to all the participating suppliers on the night, who donated at least £1 per transaction to such a worthwhile charity.
So spring has definitely sprung this week on QVC, and although there may be the odd cold evening around, the sun is doing its best to put its hat on and everyday it gets a little higher in the sky.
To celebrate that fact we have a wonderful 'Step Into Spring' 3-day event, where all on-air items and some featured web items are on 3 Easy Pay… nice ! As you'd expect, there's a varied array of offerings from a fabulous Honora cultured freshwater pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings set TSV, to a set of 3D solar path lights, which is Friday's TSV that I'll be launching on Thursday night with Gill Gauntlet – in a premiere Garden Light show featuring Luxform. They come in a set of 4 and we are also offering a 'Buy More Save More' option – and don't forget, even at an amazing price under £15 plus P&P, the TSV will still be on 3 Easy Pays!
I've included a couple of pictures, which give a hint of the 3D-effect – I've shown the Blossom and Butterfly versions – there's also a Rose option. I think they would work in hanging baskets as well as along paths, that way you can appreciate the 3D-effect up closer to your eye line, unless you prefer to view them lying down on the pathway! That reminds me of my pal Neal at a summer party! He still blames the fruit punch!
In the movies, winter is shown with thick frost and snow all around – then from behind a cloud the sun appears and everything cold melts and fresh shoots emerge with scorching days a day later. Well spring, in the UK is certainly not quite that defined, is it? The seasons definitely merge quite a bit and we have to be prepared for anything at almost any time of the year, don't we? I mentioned this last week and already I've been caught out with the wrong attire – never mind, I'll get it right just in time for next winter!
Stay warm, or cool, but most importantly safe and well, and we'll catch up next week. Better dash, I'm off to The Q to stuff myself with gorgeous food from 'The King's Realm'. MMMmmmmmmmmmm! What? I don't enjoy it – I do it just for you the faithful Q Customer! (Note: this statement is yet to be verified as entirely accurate!)
