Red Carpet Season, International Flirting Week and More Fun Dates Await in February

Senior Independence Month is your chance to reach an under-served market.





1 National Senior Independence Month is held to encourage the sharing of local resources to help the elderly live independent and full lives. That sounds like something you may want to get involved with. Roll out a pickup and delivery service for older customers who need repairs or would like to see a curated selection of your best classic jewelry. Seniors are a key if sometimes constrained market.

3 Today is the 20th National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S. Get involved in a business or community activity or host your own red themed party. From rubies to V-Day, the options are limitless for a jeweler.

6 Music’s biggest night — aka the 65th Annual Grammy Awards — kicks off Red Carpet season. Slip into fashion-maven mode and get your customers excited about jewelry’s cutting-edge trends with a series of posts or tweets on what’s hot and what to look out for.

12 Ahead of INTERNATIONAL FLIRTING WEEK, write a blog post and a press release with your list of Top 10 flirting tips. (Tip #3 – interesting jewelry can serve as a prop and an ice-breaker!)

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
