Joelle's & Jeff's Guyshop Community July 13 2017

Joelle's and Jeff's Guyshop Community
Joelle’s and Jeff’s Guyshop is dedicated to our community. With your support, we have been able to contribute to so many local causes over the past twenty years. Whether we are donating items to or sponsoring events that you are participating in, attending fundraisers, selling items for causes or hosting our own events, it is the team effort that makes great things happen!

We are pleased to share that Joelle’s and Jeff’s Guyshop recent fundraising initiatives, such as the Fashion Shows and Golf Tournaments have raised $300,000 for our new community Hospital! Our collective effort will be recognized in the new Joseph Brant Hospital Patient Tower with a named Oncology Reception Area and a Single Inpatient Room. For this special recognition, Jeff and I have decided to name these dedicated spaces In Recognition of Joelle’s and Jeff’s Guyshop Community to honour all those who have contributed to the success of these initiatives. We are so thankful to our staff, our valued customers, our business neighbours, our suppliers and friends for your tremendous generosity and ongoing support.

Jeff and I were also awarded with the Sesquicentennial Citizenship Award from Karina Gould on June 11th. Thank you to our friends at Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation for nominating us for this award.

Awards and recognition are not why we do what we do. We feel “it is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out if it.”
– Albert Einstein

We are truly blessed with the most amazing team here at Joelle’s and Jeff’s Guyshop, along with the most incredible customers and suppliers. These relationships contribute to our business success and in turn to our philanthropic opportunities. We hope to inspire other business owners to leverage what they do to give back in meaningful ways that don’t necessarily have to stray to far outside of what you know, love and do every day.

Here is a snapshot of some of some of the things we have been doing for the past few months.
Thank you to all of you for your support and enthusiasm.

Tinte Lip Balm
When these popped up in Joelle’s inbox she ordered them right away!!
They evoked a feeling of nostalgia!!!
TINte Cosmetics a brand of cosmetics based on simpler times,
sweet memories and flavored lip gloss.
Tinte Lip Gloss
TINte Cosmetics was created from a feeling, a feeling of a simpler time, a
time we all cherished, a memory of pure innocence, the essence of
youth and freedom.
The Creator of TINte Cosmetics is a modern day woman who remembers her
first encounter with a lip gloss, a lip gloss with the color, aroma and flavor that
launched her and a generation down the road to femininity.
In the early 1970’s and 1980’s. Flavored Lip Gloss and Flavored Lip Balm came
on the scene. This was a tender time during our teenage years.
For many of us this was our first experience with a lip gloss.
Many of us experienced our very first kiss wearing flavored lip gloss!
Many teens including TINte’s Creator Stacy Reid and Joelle herself
fell in love with the flavor and scents of these delicious glosses.
They were and still are a “must have” product and
are a favorite for women of any age!

Who remembers?

“I've expanded this years GRACE to include new bangles, necklaces and perfect pairing cuffs. Last year we raised over $4,500 for epilepsy research - I am hoping this year we can do the same! I wanted to change the word this year, but there just didn't seem to be one out there that embodied my message like "GRACE"...so the word stuck and the collection will now grow. Our journey with Marin is best summed by this word...she has taught us to show GRACE, accept GRACE, and live by GRACE. 100% of the profits of the GRACE collection will benefit epilepsy research. Let's work together to find a cure!" $25-$62

Feature: Reliable Brands. March 30 2017

For twenty years Joelle's has relied on Natalie Gangbar's sales agency to bring
some of our most reliable brands to our customers.  Many customers have asked
how we source the lines we sell here at Joelle's. The short answer is, by building
trust with suppliers like Natalie and her team.
We rely on her expertise along with our knowledge of our customers to find lines
that have longevity, versatility and value. Each of the brands listed below
represent those qualities. We believe that the newest line, PPLA will
have what it takes to be a hit with our customers.
 
Autumn Cashmere:
Sexy, stylish, classic or girly – we can achieve a lot of looks with this
sweater line – which is based on cashmere but does beautiful cottons and
alternative fabrics for the spring/summer season. Don’t forget, light weight
cashmeres are perfect for summer nights!!
We continue to buy more and more from this line as we appreciate the
quality, the fit and the colour palettes that they choose.


 
Bella Dahl:
Ultra–soft essentials that have a laid back, California vibe.
Hand-dyed, treated and quality controlled in California, the modern silhouettes,
textures and treatments and one-of-a-kind washes really appeal to our Joelle’s
customer. All day comfort without the sacrifice of style is something we look for
when buying a line. Super casual bodies are created in such a way that, by adding
the right accessories, they can be slightly elevated from day to night.

 

 
Ecru:
If you like a sharp looking pant or a versatile blouse in premium fabrications,
this is the line for you. Pull on and side zip styles of pants give you a
smooth, clean fit. Blouses are simple yet sophisticated.
What do we love about Ecru at Joelle’s? It fits our criteria as it allows
discerning customers to move effortlessly from the office to dinner, to
the weekend, to a party to vacation.

 

 
Free People:
Part of Joelle's signature style for years, Free People has touched that
little bit of Bohemian in all of us. This Spring, we are loving the
shoe collection which works with many of our looks this season.

  

 
Lilla P:
Flattering and functional separates, clean lines, quality fabrics and
impeccable fit put Lilla P on our list of lines for you.
Beyond their basic essential tank and tee programme (which we will
always have in stock), their seasonal items include amazing dresses,
sweaters and cotton tops that are super versatile and a pleasure to wear.

 

 
PPLA:
People’s Project Los Angeles is a new line for us at Joelle’s.
Why did we pick it? Because it offers on trend pieces that are
simple and effortless, just the way you like them!!
Easy to wear and reasonably priced, these pieces will give you the
look you are wanting without the fuss!!

 
 

 

 


We Love Sonix! March 28 2017

When our friends at Show and Tell Fashion and Gangbar Agency approached us
about a cell phone case line, we hesitated at first, because everyone
has one already, right? Until we saw them.

Our whole team said YES PLEASE to this
really fun line of cases and sunglasses.

The cases fit iPhone 6 and/or 7 series (some fit both!)
Have a 6 plus or 7 plus? No problem – we can order selected styles for you!!

Spring Denim 2017 March 09 2017



Here #atjoelles we love our denim! With the changing season, there comes some fun new denim trends that we can't wait to show you. This spring/summer there's something for everyone. While the skinny is still on trend, the cropped bootcut is a huge trend. Dress them up or dress them down, this is a chic twist on a basic and is a must for your spring/summer wardrobe! For our novelty denim lovers, it's all about the hem. Undone hems, step hems and even fringed hems. Some of these styles combine a cool hem with the edge of a  distressed denim, which, like the skinny, is still very much on trend!
What new denim are you dreaming of? Come see us this weekend and we will find you the perfect pair.
Whether you're in need of a great basic, or you want a novelty pair to add to your collection-we've got something just for you!
