Fifty years may have passed since the Summer of Love, but the mythology still burns, which makes this cultural touchstone a great inspiration for a summer party. Maybe a trunk show with a vintage feel, a designer inspired by earth issues? Another option: A Lucy in the Sky of Diamonds Sale. June is also the 50th anniversary of the release of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” 

  • June 8 On the 105th anniversary of the first Ziegfield Follies, hold a fancy-dress party to mark one of Broadway’s high points. Pearls and art deco-inspired jewelry are de rigeur. 
  • June 17 Mark the 45th anniversary of Watergate by doing something conspiratorial-feeling but useful: Shred those old financial papers piled up in your study. (But check with your CPA first).
  • June 28 Chicago’s Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade, held today, is the biggest in the country. Get involved locally in activities planned to market LGBT Pride Month.

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.”
