Bring Excitement Back to Father’s Day, and More Important Dates for June

On Splurge Day, your customers should be thinking about one place: your store.





20 Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell Williams. Think of the biggest male fashion icons of the last two decades, and you’ll realize two things: Most of them are nearly 60, and they all wear jewelry. Why then is it so hard for people to associate jewelry with FATHER’S DAY? Jewelers must take some of the blame. Kids and wives seem particularly challenged when it comes to Father’s Day gifts. They need ideas. And jewelers should be providing them. Get imaginative and ramp up your marketing this June.

1 Today is SAY SOMETHING NICE DAY. Consultant Megan Crabtree suggests you create a bulletin board in the back of the store where all team members can put a Post-it stating one thing they love about a team member.

8 On NATIONAL BEST FRIENDS DAY, be sure to post gift ideas on social media that people can purchase for their BFF. One that immediately comes to mind: matching bracelets.

18 It’s a scientifically proven fact: Occasional self-treats are good for mental health. On NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY, come up with selections or a shared marketing plan (maybe with a pedicurist) that encourages your customers to reward themselves.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
