Tommy Bahama, watch out! If our boss, Kevin Rabbitt, ever decides to expand our line into island-influenced menswear, you’re history!The weatherman said it was going to be HOT, HOT, HOT today, and he was right! 3 Day Blinds was cookin’ for the full month of June, and not just fabulous authentic Hawaiian Luau fare… our sales last month not only exceeded our ridiculously aggressive forecast, but we’re saying “Aloha” to sales that are the highest we’ve seen in longer than any of us can remember!
We had a fabulously fun celebration in the Irvine office that started off with our fearless leader, King Kevin-Mea-Lanakila (Champion), calling the party to order, while boldly making yet another unique, completely unsolicited, but no doubt trend-setting fashion statement (left).
Next, we enjoyed a delicious buffet-style lunch catered by L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, complete with super-colorful decorations.
Another highlight was the hula hoop contest, the result of a challenge issued to Kevin’s children by our SVP of Human Resources, Tikie Holewski. Tikie has real talent and unbelievable stamina, but Kevin’s daughters Kristen, Sara and Lauren stole the show with their graceful dance moves, and daring acrobatics. Wonder who they got their competitive sports genes from? Just about everyone got involved, and for most of us, hula-hooping was not quite as easy as we remembered!
Meanwhile, our clients did not know that we were having a party, so our phones kept ringing off the hook in our call center, mainly with people trying to book appointments to meet with one of our expert design consultants in their neighborhood. So, our Appointment Scheduling and Client Care teams kept our clients happy, and had to party in shifts.
It was fun to cut loose, laugh and celebrate the great year that we’re having! Want to make our year even better and give your home a makeover with great new custom window treatments at the same time?
