The turnout was great, everyone was having the best time reconnecting with friends, shopping for beautiful jewelry, and supporting Hagan. Although I am now a Theta alum, it never ceases to encourage me to see the incredible women of my sorority stand up to support each other. Such a blessing.
When I was making plans with my old roommate from college Courtney, to attend the event, people kept telling us to "make sure and get there by six, for the surprise!"I'm so glad that we did.
A representative from the Kendra Scott headquarters in Austin came up to Dallas to represent the company, and to finally get to meet Hagan and her mom. She told us of how Hagan's mom had emailed her (a representative for customer service) to request maroon colored jewelry for her Fighting Texas Aggie Daughter. She laughed as she told us that Hagan's mom had reached the only Aggie in the Austin based office. She soon got to know Hagan's story, and Kendra Scott herself did too. They loved Hagan, and sent her a pair of their iconic "Danielle earrings" in maroon, with a note from Kendra. But they couldn't get Hagan off their minds and wanted to do more. They spoke with their designers, and planned to integrate maroon pieces into their fall line. They can be found, here. Still with Hagan in mind, they wanted to have a "Kendra Scott Gives Back" event, that we were attending. It was also going to work out to be the perfect time to reveal the piece in the fall line that had been designed especially for Hagan!!!!!!
There were few dry eyes in the house as Hagan was gifted the first "Hagan bracelet" in the world, before the line came out in stores a few days later.
It was such an encouraging and fun night!
Do you have any Kendra pieces? Will you be going for any of the new maroon or the "Hagan bangle"? Do you have any good stories about companies you love?
Thanks for stopping by, and HAPPY FRIDAY!
