Hello and happy Friday, everyone! I hope you are all keeping safe and well. Not quite sure how we are in November already; the weeks just seem to be passing by.
I thought I would write a little blog today as I have some very exciting news.... Proven-Salle has just launched its very own brand of luxury hand washes. And they really are incredible! There are currently two scents available: Rhubarb & Pear and Pink Champagne & Jasmine. The fragrances are absolutely delicious and will be sure to turn washing your hands into the ultimate sensory experience!
In celebration of Proven-Salle’s #SmallBiz100 day on Sunday 29th November 2020 (supported by American Express), I am running a little competition!
Entry can be via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Simply:
- Like Proven-Salle’s social media competition post from Saturday 24th October 2020 and comment “entered”
- Post a photo of your recent Proven-Salle purchase on your page using #provensallecountdown
- Tag @provensallefurniture in your post along with 3 friends, who you think would appreciate your purchase
I will then showcase the first 28 entrants in individual videos every day between 1st November and 28th November 2020. And most importantly, one winner will be selected at random (from all entrants) on 29th November 2020 and will win £100 to spend at proven-salle.com. Terms and conditions apply. Competition closes at midnight on 28th November 2020. Good luck!Click "Read More" below to run through the full terms and conditions.
Over the past year, the owner (Julia Barnes) of Roxhill Manor Farm (near Cranfield) has lovingly renovated her home, along with some adjoining holiday rental cottages. Julia has been a hugely-loyal customer of Proven-Salle and has furnished the properties with many unique pieces from us. Last week, I was kindly invited to visit the farm to see how everything had been styled together. I think you’ll agree that Julia and her team have done a superb job! The photos above are of the main farmhouse and of the Granary which, by the way, is available to book (Sykes Cottages: property #1051624). Enjoy!
Very excited to announce that Proven-Salle will be taking part in the Gransden Show again this year. We thoroughly enjoyed last year's event (despite the strong winds whilst trying to pin a gazebo down!) and it was great to welcome so many new customers. Due to the pandemic, this year's show will be held online and will take place on Saturday 26th September 2020. There will be a number of lovely stalls for people to browse, with lots of traders offering show-day promotions. Visitors will be able to access the show via a link on the Gransden Show website and will be able to talk to traders via Zoom. I hope to see you there!
Incredibly honoured and proud to announce that Proven-Salle has reached the Small Business 100 List (supported by American Express UK). Each year 100 small businesses from around the U.K. are selected for this list and in the 100 days from now until Small Business Saturday, which is on the 5th December this year, the Small Biz UK team (led by Michelle Ovens MBE) will be featuring one small business each day. Proven-Salle’s big day is on 29th November 2020, when we will be running some great competitions and marketing campaigns! Keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels for more information nearer the time!Small businesses are the life blood of the economy and are essential for driving the recovery of the U.K. post-covid. Thank you to everyone who has supported small businesses, bought from small businesses, liked their posts and generally been amazing. It all makes such a difference!To see Proven-Salle in The Bedford Independent newspaper, please click here:
The SME National Business Awards are made up of 16 categories and we are delighted to announce that Proven-Salle has reached the finals in the Best New Business Category at national level. To say we are excited would be an understatement! The winners will be announced at Wembley Stadium on 5th March 2021 and we will be sure to keep you posted! I would like to personally thank everyone who has supported Proven-Salle throughout its journey to-date. We certainly would not have reached this milestone without you! And a special thank you to the organisers, Events and PR MK, and also to The Jockey Club, who are the sponsors of this category. Now, where is that little black dress....?!
With heartfelt thanks,
Founder of Proven-Salle.
