Thursday’s raffle ~ a short preview


2018
11.06

This Thursday evening we will be raffling away more than $15k worth of merchandise as we celebrate 30 years in our current location. Raffle tickets will range from $50 to $100 with all proceeds going to charity. With some help from our suppliers, there will be lots of beautiful merchandise up for grabs. The items pictured below are just a sample of what to expect.

Windsor Platinum

Windsor Platinum bed by Downtown Company

From Downtown Company’s made to order Chateau Silk collection, Windsor Platinum is made in Germany by expert silk craftsman. The collection is woven of 100% silk. We will be raffling off an entire bed – king sheets, a king duvet cover, and five shams. The photo above shows the duvet cover and euro shams.

San Francisco Crown Sculpture by Jan Barboglio

This handcrafted stone and gesso statue is finished in green with cast iron accents. Measuring 28″ tall by 10″ x 9″, it makes a unique, elegant centerpiece.

Giza 45 Percale
Giza 45 Percale

Sferra Giza 45 Percale

Along the hot, dry desert of the Sahara, the Nile has created an oasis that enjoys extraordinary weather conditions. The two extremes combine to create ideal conditions for growing the world’s best cotton – referred to as Giza cotton. All Giza cotton is assigned a number – the smaller the number the longer the staple and finer the thread. Many of the finest cotton sheets that we sell are woven from Giza 70 cotton. Giza 45 cotton is exactly what makes Sferra’s Giza 45 collection stand out from that pack. Because the thread is so fine, Giza 45 cotton was generally considered impractical if not unsuitable for bedding, until Sferra introduced this landmark collection several years ago.

Anyways – we’ll be raffling off four separate sheet sets of Giza 45 Percale. The fabric is exceptionally smooth and soft for a fabric that also feels crisp, cool and airy.

SDH Pouf Coverlet

SDH Pouf Coverlet

SDH’s opulent, lightly padded Pouf Coverlet consists of two layers of luxurious silk woven together to contain finely woven wool. It is pictured above in Caviar, but will be raffled away in Chinchilla (a discontinued tan color).

Other confirmed items to be raffled include throws from Lili Alessandra, Bella Notte and Sferra, a Revolution Centerpiece from Kosta Boda, and a duvet from Downright. Also: a “Secret” bed, with coverlet, from Celso de Lemos (which is made by the same people responsible for Abyss & Habidecor’s towels and rugs), and our friend Sal Romano at Poppa Artzee has contributed a gift certificate good for one custom “pet portrait.” The winner can choose from a throw pillow or a 12×12″ canvas.

All proceeds will benefit Mingus Manor Animal Sanctuary

Mingus Manor is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in Chandler that provides care for Senior and Special Needs pets. Founded by Karen Scherer, the Sanctuary’s mission is to provide the care needed to those pets, who are generally deemed unadoptable by other rescues and animal agencies.

Pillow Bar Trunk Show and ‘spring prep’ event – April 21st!


2018
03.20


Join us for a Pillow Bar trunk show the weekend of April 21. We had so much fun in September, we had to do it again!

This time, we’ll be featuring Mother’s Day, graduation and bridal gift ideas – to be personalized with TLC in time for your occasion.

Pillow Bar Trunk Show 4/21 at The Linen Tree

 

Meet Merrimac Dillon.
Merrimac founded The Pillow Bar in 2008. While seeking to help her husband recover from debilitating back surgery, she couldn’t find a pillow worth its weight. So, she spent more than a year working with chiropractors and surgeons, seeking to create the perfect pillow.

The name ‘The Pillow Bar’ refers literally to a bar. Merrimac invented a patent-pending, mechanized bar that is used to efficiently fill pillows according to custom specs. Pillows are filled according to a customer’s unique size, shape, and sleep preferences.
Nobody does what The Pillow Bar does.
From boomerang shaped "side sleeper" pillows to ribbon wrapped travel pillows, The Pillow Bar offers something for everyone. Each pillow features fine Hungarian down (or down alternative) as well as an embedded lavender sachet. Every item – including sleepwear, towels, and more – comes standard with a custom embroidered message and/or monogram.

Merrimac will be at our store all day on Saturday, April 21st, possibly the 22nd as well. Meet with Merrimac and get custom-fitted for your own Pillow Bar pillow, in person. To ensure one on one time with her, we are currently taking appointments.

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:

Slumber, Party. Join us on March 4th.


2014
02.24

Tuesday, March 4th The Linen Tree will be hosting a one-day sale and trunk show.  Royal-Pedic mattresses & Sferra Milos linens – choice ingredients to a Royal night of sleep – will be 10% off.  Tom Sarkela, a representative from Royal-Pedic, will be on hand to present the Royal-Pedic line.

For those less familiar with Royal-Pedic, this is the company that has made mattresses for at least six US Presidents, including John F Kennedy who insisted on sleeping on a Royal-Pedic wherever he traveled.   It is also the company who manufactured a custom 120″ x 120″ mattress for Wilt Chamberlain, who instructed eight deliverymen to take his mattress away if it wouldn’t fit through his doorway.  Founder Abe Kaplan had moved to Los Angeles from Britain, where his employer supplied the Royal Family (with mattresses) at the time. All Royal-Pedic mattresses are made by hand and are generally chemical free.

Inside Royal-Pedic Mattresses

Royal-Flex innerspring unit

Royal Pedic’s Royal-Flex innerspring unit is the finest offset coil spring system available. It contains far more coils than is standard, making it ultra-sensitive to body contours. Each coil is double-heat tempered to enhance durability and provide for years of sag free use.

Royal-Pedic mattresses contain lots of fine quality natural materials

The Royal-Flex innerspring unit is often surrounded by finely harvested natural materials including long staple, American grown cotton; natural 100% talalay latex harvested from sustainable plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia; untreated lamb’s wool from New Zealand, a temperature regulating material; and lanolin, a natural dust mite repellant.

pristine staple cotton

The All Cotton Mattress – Royal-Pedic’s trademark mattress known for its firm, orthopedic support, contains more than fifty pounds of premium cotton padding in addition to a Royal-Flex innerspring unit. Natural materials ventilate body heat and provide greater durability.

all cotton mattress and pillowtop pad

The All Cotton mattress is too firm for some, but can be made just right with any combination of pillow-tops or quilt-tops. Here, an All Cotton mattress is pictured with a Royal-Cloud Pillowtop Pad. This combination is a best-seller at The Linen Tree.

Royal-Pedic's innovative seven zone latex core

The Royal Latex Mattress features an all-latex core instead of a Royal-Flex innerspring unit. This innovative mattress core was designed based on sleep studies at the Kirshgarten Clinic in Basel, Switzerland. It is different than other latex mattress cores – not just because of the quality of latex, harvest, and manufacture – but because it is shaped by seven distinct firmness zones. This allows for perfect body contour without sacrificing the firm, resilient support provided by natural talalay latex.

The details

Tom (from Royal-Pedic) will be in the store from about 11 am – 5 pm on March 4th. The sale will go all day long (10-6). Don’t forget that we will be offering 10% off Sferra Milos bedding too. As Royal-Pedic mattresses are one of the finest quality mattresses one can sleep on, Milos sheets are one some of the finest quality sheets one can sleep on. They feature a 1,020 thread count. Usually we would caution against putting too much stock in thread count, but Milos sheets feature the best of all worlds. They are carefully woven utilizing 100% Extra Long Staple (Giza 70) Egyptian Cotton. Read more about that here.

Join us for the 3rd annual ‘Dining With the Dogs,’ 1/26


2012
12.06

The Mingus Manor Animal Sanctuary – located in Chandler – is a cause dear to The Linen Tree family. Their biggest annual fundraiser is approaching next month.
 
 

Founded by local resident Karen Scherer, the Mingus Manor Animal Sanctuary is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides care for Senior and other Special Needs dogs. These dogs often end up in the sanctuary’s care because their owner passed away, moved to an assisted living facility, or otherwise found themselves unable to spend the time necessary to properly care for their aging dog. Other dogs are found roaming astray, with obvious signs of having been abused. The one thing all of these dogs have in common: they are going through a tough time in their lives, and without Mingus Manor, they would likely end up at the pound. Keep in mind: they are often experiencing a decline in vision, hearing, and overall health, and can easily become disillusioned once they are suddenly separated from those who have cared for them all their life. Even if they were to receive proper medical care at the pound, strange voices, noises, cold concrete, and confinement can create an overwhelming sense of terror and confusion.
 
 

Please view, below, the brochure for the 3rd Annual Dining With the Dogs dinner – $40 reserves for you a night of cocktails, dining, and dancing. To donate money separately, please visit www.mingusmanor.org or call (602) 296-5568. Please be aware that medical expenses alone cost Mingus Manor in excess of $15,000 per year, and the organization’s budget is almost exclusively dependent on donations and fundraisers. Anything you can give, helps!
