5 Neil Armstrong would have turned 90 this month (Aug. 5) and Louis Armstrong 120 (Aug. 4). One took a small step for mankind, the other wondered what a wonderful world this could be. In a year when there has been so much to get down about, mark their birthdays with a plan to produce your own line of inspirational pendants or charms with whatever theme seems fitting — love, unity, perseverance. (And if you need a reminder about the power of jewelry, keep in mind that Neil is believed to have left such a bracelet on the moon in memory of his young daughter, who died at the age of 2.)

1 Mark GIRLFRIENDS DAY by holding a “Bring A Friend Event” in the store. There’s nothing like a shopping buddy oohing and ahhing over a piece to get the acquisitional urges flowing.

21 On MEN’S GROOMING DAY, team up with a local men’s spa or upscale hairdresser. Print gift cards for them to hand out offering $50 or $100 in free store credit to be used with any of your men’s jewelry.

26 On NATIONAL DOG DAY, invite customers to bring in their “best friends,” hold a dog fashion show, and raise money for the local no-kill shelter.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
