The Plumed Serpent’s Holiday December 3, 2009

Filed under: Alison,Thank you,The Plumed Serpent — plumed @ 5:37 pm

In between Thanksgiving and the New Year – there is a holiday that no one but me celebrates.  I had the honor of taking over The Plumed Serpent December 1, 2000.  That was a big day for me.  I was 25 years old and really did not know what I was getting into.

I had previously worked at Ralph Lauren and Nicole Miller as an account executive.  Both were great places to work and both had fantastic perks – (can anyone say expense account and clothing allowance??)  But I was missing the connection of working with people – not just buyers for stores – but actual clients.  So – the opportunity to take over The Plumed Serpent came my way – and in my somewhat impulsive, confident manner – I seized it.

That was nine years ago.  As I have grown so has the store.  My family has grown by two children and the store has grown by about 1000 square feet!  If I can survive 2:00 am feedings and a complete gut job on my salon – I can survive anything!

I have always said that we are not just selling wedding gowns – we are providing an experience.  I would like to thank everyone who has been apart of this experience for the past nine years.  Good, bad, pretty and ugly – I love what I do and I love that I am a part of people’s history.  I have the honor of being a part of a very special day.

Thank you for giving me this honor!
