Welcoming Spring

The weather is desperately trying to turn for most of us here in the US and our Linell Ellis women welcome Spring with open arms. As the weather tip toes closer and closer to warmer temperatures, we cannot help but think those happy springy thoughts.

Taking A Moment...

Love is certainly still all around and with spring soon to be approaching we just wanted to take a moment to say Hi and to say Thank You. Its so easy to get caught up in our daily lives, to forget to pass a smile along or a friendly hello. Sometimes we rush through the days and forget to smell the roses. Here at Linell Ellis, we want to remind you that you are worth it and you may as well show your best self off each day. With that in mind, we also wanted to remind you that we not only have the bag for you to show your exclusive style off, but we also have the accessories to match!

A Joyous Winter with our Joyce Bucket Bag

Welcome to 2018! January is always a month that registers as “something new” and of course we at Linell Ellis welcome the new fresh year. And for most of us here in the US we are still cold, but that doesn't mean we cannot still be in style! Cold yet Cute, we like it!

Suede! The New Feel of Fall

Fall is approaching! We think of burnt orange hues, harvested apples, warm ciders, pumpkin spices, knee boots with a kitty-kat heel… and we think Suede! Who doesn't love that beautiful flesh side of leather that has been rubbed down to create a tough yet gentle feel. It is just as autumn can be, tough in temperature yet gentle in breeze. 

 

We here at Linell Ellis are very happy to be able to bring to you our new collection which features suede clutches as well as suede bucket bags. We couldn't be more excited to give you an option to rock out with the new styles and add a little spunk to your day or night!

 

The new bags are sure to be a hit this fall and even into the winter! With the cool color choices and the ever-lasting Linell Ellis durability and quality, no one can go wrong with the suede! Be sure to shop with us soon! Happy Autumn and Feel Fabulous this Fall!

Fall into Museums this Autumn

As we welcome Autumn onto our doorstep and say good-bye to summer, it is also time to switch bags for the seasons! Put away those summer clutches and totes and follow our leading lady, the Joyce Bucket Bag. Whether it be happy hours, cocktails by the fire-pit, strolls in the pumpkin patch, weekend matinees, whatever your preference, we know it is always essential to have the right bag. Here at Linell Ellis, this fall we have decided to pack our Buckets with our needed goodies and head out into town to check out a few museums. 

 National Museum of African American History and Culture

National Museum of African American History and Culture

 

There is nothing mundane about a sweet history lesson or a burst of art. It’s worth your time to add to your “bucket” list for the season. With all the cool things to partake in, there is something for everyone. From the guided tours, the free seminars and classes, the cafes, gift shops, the story times for families and/or the personal self-guided tours, the museum is sure to hold your interest.

 

Our Linell Ellis woman is going to tell her girlfriends to meet her perhaps on Constitution Ave. at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, in Washington D.C., to view “A Changing America: 1968 and Beyond”, one of the many exhibitions. This particular display “explores contemporary black life through stories about the social, economic, political, and cultural experiences of African Americans. From the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. to the second election of Barack Obama, the coverage is broad. Large scale graphics and original artifacts lead visitors from the Black Arts Movement to Hip Hop, the Black Panthers to “Yes We Can," and Black is Beautiful to #BlackLivesMatter.” Our lady will be outfitted with her Joyce Bucket Bag in Brown, a pair of her favorite jeans and a off-the-shoulder bone colored jersey knit sweater. She meets her friends, they take the tour, snap pictures and stop at the gift shop on their way out for a few souvenirs before they head to lunch in Georgetown. Conveniently the Bucket Bag, holds not only their wallet, phone, tour maps and random goodies, but also those souvenirs! Score!

The versatility of our bag, makes it easy to throw over the shoulder and enjoy family time too. With the National Museum of African-American History and Culture having just celebrated their 1st anniversary, there is something for everyone, even the kids. Be sure to stick a few fruit snacks in your bag to satisfy those cravings that come in between the family workshops or after browsing the Sports or Musical Crossroads Exhibitions. 

 

Even when going to a totally kid-oriented museum such as the National Building Museum on F Street in Washington DC, there is a bag for every situation. Feel free to carry our Linell Ellis Candi Satchel or the Laverne Backpack in any color. Both bags are spacious and roomy for all things kid while out and about at the museum. Enjoy the “Little Builders Storytime" great for kiddies 6 and under or take the entire family to the “Big Build” event. 

 

Use this Fall to scurry into your favorite museum or try something new. Be sure to sling our signature Joyce Bucket Bag over your shoulder to make it an all-encompassing experience.

Strawberry Season is Quickly Approaching

I love summer! Everything about summer! The sun and warm weather make me happy. I look forward to longer days and more sunlight.  I have been receiving deliveries from  From the Farmer DC for almost 3 years.  I absolutely love them. Fresh locally grown food delivered directly to my door every week.  This week the sweetest strawberries were in the bag.  When I opened the bag, the aroma just hit my nose.  I smiled and took a few deep breathes.  I knew exactly what was inside. They were a bright, deep red and totally delicious.

When I think about what makes me happy, I focus on things that create long lasting memories. I try to etch the moment into my mind and heart forever. I am always on a quest to experience new things. Is there something about summer that you love? Is there an experience you look forward to?  Let me know, I'd love to add a new experience to my list.

Live Completely,

Linell
