Soak, on the Shopping Channel! Watch it now.

We’ve been busy, and a bit out of touch with the blog. Thankfully it has been all in the name of good things and lots of work! We’ll be more on top of this moving forward.

Yesterday, as you may already know, we had our debut on the Shopping Channel! It was a very exciting day, full of new friends, new activities and selling Soak!

Jacqueline was the guest on-air, and Chris watched the numbers and helped from the sidelines. When experiencing such new and exciting adventures, it helps not to be alone!

We are very pleased to share with you the link to the great gift set we made, exclusively for them (you have to click to see it), as well as some awesome photos of the television that Chris took in the green room (the nice place where guests wait when they aren’t on air) and Jacqueline’s Dad took from home (the nice place where parents watch proudly as their children sell stuff on TV). We love the grainy look of the shots, combined with the TV buying information. All scents are available online, so get them now! Thanks for watching. We’ll let you know our next air date as soon as we have it.

Oh, and did we mention, you can even watch the video of our on-air episode too! (you have to click on the video link above the image on the Shopping Channel page selling Soak…)

Check it out! Thanks again for choosing Soak. We wouldn’t be where we are today, without you.

What a week it has been. Out every night, early days in the warehouse. Seriously, I’m not 22 anymore!

Wednesday night, the highlight of the week, Lingerie Française Paris (the French federation of lingerie and swimwear) hosted its annual French lingerie fashion show in Toronto. The beautiful (why on earth have I not been there before?) Wychwood Barns  was the venue for a hot and sticky night of fashion and fun.

I was the guest of the lovely and talented shop owner Jen, from Secrets from your Sister (2 shops, one on Bloor, one on Yonge, in Toronto). We sipped champagne (followed by many glasses of water) and enjoyed a cabaret style fashion show filled with singing, dancing and style.

Hoisery tap performance

We brushed shoulders with industry insiders, distributors, sales reps and shop owners, including Soak retailer, Christine from Brava Boutique.

Following the extraordinary event we dined with friends such as owners Joan and Greta of The Spa on Main in Georgetown. Our dinner was hosted by Paul from Empreinte makers of my favorite bras. (Dear Paul, I love my new IVA bra, especially the Feather detail!)

No fashion event would be complete without a fun filled swag bag. We opened it up and divided the treats at the office just this morning. The bag wasn’t as photo worthy as the event itself, so I leave you with my favorite parts of this cabaret inspired performance. The open scene featured dancers en pointe with parasols and elegant lingerie. The lights were hot but you barely noticed for the lovely lingerie.

Ballet

Mid-way through, between scene changes and singing, hosiery collections were shown in true cabaret style. With hats, gloves and canes, dancers showed the latest styles and textures, fall is sure going to be stylish and fun. Visit the Lingerie Francaise website for all featured brands and retailers.

101 things you can do with Soak |001 Hand-wash lingerie

Author: Jacqueline

Soak, while designed for all fine fibers, is the perfect (and generally preferred) solution for hand-washing lingerie.


Ask lingerie expert Jennifer Klein, from Secrets from your Sister, who recently answered the age old question- how to hand wash bras, on sweetspot.ca.

On February 18th we head off to NYC to our semi-annual tradeshow, CurveNY. There, we spread the word of Soak to lingerie boutique and department store buyers world-wide. We start with our basic hand-washing techniques, move through our delicate fragrances and talk about our award-winning packaging and designs. We’re also introducing Carrie + Phil, the latest members of the Soak collection.  Phil loves protecting hand-washables from the rest of the laundry and relieving the sink of its duties by providing a safe haven for Soaking.  Phil or no Phil, hand-washing lingerie on a regular basis prolongs its life and keeps it looking clean and stylish longer.

This pictorial review of Soak, said to ‘explain the phenomenon that Is Soak’ does just that, so, enough from us, get SOAKing.

It’s Friday and I’m bagged. Week 2: Bag that bra.

Meet Brachic. Located on Richmond Street in Ottawa, Ontario, Brachic packages the perfect bra in the perfect pink bag. When I bought my insanely beautiful and comfortable purple bra (Salome) during my last visit, I was captivated by Marianne (the owner extraordinaire) as well as her staff, her store and her shopping bags.

While the store is simply lovely, the fitting rooms are brilliant. One even has a cork board for fitting women to exchange business cards! Each has a unique theme to make every woman feel at home.
I brought my pink bag back to the office and I just can’t part with it. It has the style and durability of a re-usable bag, but it’s crisp lines and un-tarnished surface makes it more suited to visual display than daily carry-along. So, we’ve decided to use it as a mini-soak display. 

We also shopped and danced ’till we dropped with Marianne at the CurveNY Lingerie trade and fashion show in NY… but that’s a story for another day. Does your shop have a unique and lovely bag? Merchandise with it. Don’t forget to send us the pics!


Smart Broad

Today we had a great conversation with the founder of Smart Broad Inc.

They make a great lingerie product called Bra Smart. It’s a unique product designed to keep bras in their original shape while they dry, after hand washing with Soak!  Check it out.
