Something new for the Skin Fair from Fleur

Roslin has, for better or for worse, given me access to the Fleur blog :) So first let me thank Roslin and CJ for thinking that I could be of service to Fleur Skins. It is an hono[u]r indeed! On to my first post.

Fleur Skins is delighted to be participating in the Vanity Skin Fair that everyone is talking about. It opens Saturday, March 1 at 1pm SLT. Our store is next to the Fashion Stage, so please drop by and say hello :) The fair will run until April 5.

There will be a new release on Saturday for the fair... I can't show you the skin until then [I wanted to show you my back wearing the skin, but Roslin said you'd seen our backs LOL], but I can say that it is called Marni, because avant-garde SL designer, Marni Grut was the motivating force for the skin's being made. It is in the Vivant line, thus will come in three makeups and the Vivant range of skin tones. The colors are wonderfully vivid and done with Roslin and CJ's usual clarity and style. I've been allowed to try it on and I can say that it's been hard to get Marni off my avatar ... it's just that cool! So on Saturday ... Marni will be available to one and all at the normal Vivant price of L$500 per makeup, L$1200 for all makeups in a tone.

And since Roslin's nowhere around to stop me ... here's my back -- the clue it provides is that my shirt matches one of the Marni makeups ;)

See you at the fair!

New Release: Shimmer Nails

An addition to our collection of prim nails has been long overdue. It's been close to a year since we did the last nail release. We are releasing prim nails in 10 shimmery shades. Just a little reminder, there are demos so please try them. In the past,some people have reported issues with nails floating. The nails have an AO with the highest priority so if there are ever issues of that sort, it's due to SL glitches. Also, be sure to make sure your hand size is set to one of the 3 sizes we offer our nails in. As always, feel free to let us know if you would like to see the nails in other colors. Enjoy!

Good News/Bad News

First, the good news. CJ and I would like to welcome our new assitant, Samara Barzane, to Fleur Skins. Samara's love for Fleur Skins and positivity is contagious and we are sure she will be a valuable asset. She's already proven herself in her induction by fire this weekend. This is what leads me to the bad news.

We are very sorry to say that we have ended the offer of free gift cards to our group members. Due to a combination of SL performance and scripting issues, we have had some technical issues that we don't see a solution for at this time. The vendor was created to handle up to 1,000 group members over the course of a week and we did not anticipate that we would have over that number joining in just the first 24 hours. We would like to take this time to apologize to all those who may have not had a chance to receive a gift but we do promise that there will be other special offers for our members in the future. Also, all gift cards will still be honored, so if you already do have one, have no fear.

Fleur Sim Closed Until Further Notice

I'm sorry to say that we've had to end the gift card giveaway for group members and shut down the sim until CJ has the chance to investigate the issues we are having. I apologize for any inconvenience it means to you all and I really hope that we will be able to find a solution very soon.

Gift Card For Fleur Update Group Members

As a special thank you to all our group members, CJ and I have will be giving out a $500 gift card to all members of the Fleur Update group. To receive your gift card, all you have to do is tp over to our flagship store in Fleur, wear your Fleur Update group tag, and touch the sign. You will receive a gift card with instructions inside. To redeem a gift card, all you have to do is wear it while purchasing any of our items for 500 or less. If you wish to purchase an item of greater value, just pass the card back to me in a folder titled, Gift Card Redemption 'your name' and let me know what you want and pay me the difference. The enrollment is open so if you haven't joined the Fleur Update group yet, just do a search for Fleur Update in groups and join. The gift card will be available until next Friday. If you haven't left the Tete group yet, now is the time to do so because I will be closing it next week.

New Release in the Boutique Line: Shoujo

A few months ago, everyone's favorite fashionista moppet, Iris Ophelia, persuaded me to give the manga series, Paradise Kiss, a read. It falls into the Shougo genre of manga which targets young female readers. It turned out to be a deliciously indulgent read filled with romance, fashion, and teenage angst. I not only devoured the series but I started to watch the anime as well. This is what served as inspiration for our latest addition to the Boutique line and our first release under our new brand name, Fleur Skins. The Queen of eyes, Miriel Enfield, was kind enough to make anime eyes for us. They should be out soon in both her her brand new sim and our shop in the next week or so.

I'd like to also thank everyone for coming out to the party yesterday. CJ and I were moved to see how many people took the time to celebrate with us. We would also like to thank our new neighbor, Nicky Ree, for donating gift cards for prizes. I think everyone really enjoyed themselves and there are some great pictures from the party sitting in my inventory and email to prove it! I hope to put them up in the next day or so.
