November 5th: Lady Primrose Trunk Show & Engraving Event

2015
10.22

On Thursday, November 5, we will be hosting Lady Primrose owner Debby Fowler for a special event from 11-3. Customers will be able to preview the entire line, and to purchase jars of the company’s luxurious body cremes complete with hand-engraved, nickel plated lids. We will also be raffling away a Tryst gift basket, worth about $500.

What should you know about Debby’s company? It began as an antique shop in 1987 and would become much more in 1990 when its founders were commissioned to create a line of exceptional bath-oriented luxuries for London’s Lanesborough Hotel and its distinguished clientele. Soon after, guests began to call Dallas so they could purchase these products for their own homes.

At this time, the line consisted of two fragrances, signature fragrance Tryst and its companion Royal Extract. These two fragrances had been crafted by founders Carolyn Hunt and Vivian Young, who had set out to create an old-fashioned, all-natural product whose fragrance would be suitable for both sexes. The entire line of products had been influenced by a French perfumer as well as a British toiletries house which had been in business since 1677. This toiletries house worked with Carolyn and Vivian and graciously granted access to its archives. To get a better feel for founders Carolyn Hunt and Vivian Young and their vision, consider purchasing Carolyn’s published novel, Primrose Past: The 1848 Journal of Young Lady Primrose.

Today, the mysterious scent of Tryst and the golden aroma of Royal Extract remain, alongside newer fragrances such as Celadon, Turquesa, and the newest addition to the mix, Momentous. Ownership has turned hands, but the company proudly remains wholly women-owned. Luxury endures. Each item is “presented,” as a gift within a gift. Pictures speak a thousand words:

Join Us October 1st: Caspari Holiday Essentials Preparation / Personalization Party

2015
09.14

On Thursday October 1st from 11 am until 3 pm, The Linen Tree will be hosting Caspari personalization expert John Conts. Caspari’s entire line of paper greeting cards, napkins, plates and guest towels will be available to sample. We will be raffling away prizes, and John will be on hand to help you select and personalize the items you need for your upcoming Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas and holiday parties, making this a terrific opportunity to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.

For those unfamiliar, Caspari is a publisher of exquisitely designed and printed paper products, with a reputation earned by reproducing the work of established artists and museums from around the world. The company was founded nearly 70 years ago, and initially imported Christmas cards made by European artists.

We will also have Care Cards on sale – this year’s proceeds benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the sale runs from October 16th to the 25th. And this will also serve as a perfect opportunity to order Uppercut (Sybaritic) placemats, Abyss towels and Downright down bedding just in time to guarantee delivery by the week of Thanksgiving.

What’s New: Summer ’15

2015
08.04

It’s been a while since we last updated our blog – our apologies. If you are local and would like to make sure that you remain notified regarding sales and shows, please join our e-mail list. After you begin receiving e-mail, you will have the option of specifying the frequency of e-mail that you receive from us. You will also receive special offers, such as the ability to pre-shop our biggest sales of the year.
 


 

So, what’s new since our last update?

Our annual white sale wrapped up last week. However, we still have some merchandise on our floor marked down up to 75% off.
 

We now carry Frette bedding. Of all the brands we sell, Frette has the most storied history; Frette linens appeared in some of the world’s finest hotels before the start of the 20th century. Old catalogs can be purchased on eBay and are considered collectors items. The best sheets that we sell? That would be a bold statement, but Frette is the piece to our puzzle that allows us to state with aplomb that we sell a full assortment of the world’s finest linens.
 

Here is a preserved swatch book from 1892 (the line has changed since):
 

 

We have uploaded most of Abyss & Habidecor’s full line of bath linens and robes to our site. We have sold Super Pile and Twill towels in our store for ages, now you can view the full line (we are working on uploading more rugs) on our website. Here is a picture of Abyss’ waffle-weaved Pousada towel:
 


 

We have uploaded Barbacci’s customizable Giotto collection to our website. These linens are about as silky as any cotton sheet that we sell, and they come available in 118 colors and in a variety of embroidery, lace, and hemstitch styles. While we have sold Barbacci Giotto for years, never has it been so easy to view, select, and configure custom options.
 


 

Lastly: it is never too early to begin thinking about the holidays. Shop now and select from a full assortment of special order merchandise that can be ordered and received in time for December. Stop by, or give us a call. We are always happy to provide personalized assistance.
