I hope your Holiday season was successful. It's that time of year when we look ahead to Mother's Day.
On January 10, Doe Clothing will announce our new Mother's Day line. Last year, our summer blouse line sold beyond our capacity to supply. Many customers came up short. This year looks to be a repeat.
Therefore, I have taken the liberty of reserving your blouse order for you. Of course you are not obligated to the styles or quantities. You can cancel or revised anyway you choose. I am simply trying to secure your order before we get inundated.
Let's go over it this next week when I sit down with you to show you the remainder of the Mother's Day line.
