“She literally stole my Magnolia.”

Jordan Weingartner, an independent jewelry designer in Florida who created the Magnolia Collection, claims that her logo is being used in Reese Witherspoon’s clothing line and has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the actress, Richard Johnson of Page Six reports.

The article says that Witherspoon is being sued for copyright and trademark infringement because the logo that her fashion company is using is nearly identical to Weingartner’s flower-shaped insignia. “She literally stole my Magnolia,” says Weingartner, who designed the logo in 2008. “My design actually looks nothing like a magnolia, and Draper James not only took the design, but also decided to call it a magnolia.”

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.”
