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

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

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.

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 @ The Linen Tree – Early 2011


2011
02.25

We are gearing up for a magnificent Spring and wanted to briefly let our customers know what is going on at The Linen Tree. We are always continuing to add exclusive new products to our inventory, and we also have a couple of cool events coming up that you should know about.

New Merchandise

Marvis toothpaste

The latest addition to our inventory is Marvis toothpaste – that’s right, toothpaste. But this isn’t just any toothpaste. Imported from Italy, Marvis toothpaste is created using a long and precise, traditional method which guarantees a thick, compact texture which increases cleaning and whitening power and is especially effective in heightening the intensity of minty flavor. Worldly influenced aromas such as jasmine enrich taste, the best of ingredients help to make brushing your teeth more pleasurable than ever before, and the packaging is just nice enough to be left on the counter of an exquisitely styled bathroom. There is nothing else like Marvis toothpaste on the market – we strongly encourage our customers to buy at least one tube, to try it out for themselves.

Upcoming Events

At The Linen Tree we like to let our customers know about the items we sell – where they come from, who they come from, what makes them special. When the opportunity arises, we love to get our suppliers themselves involved – and that is what we are doing over the next two months. Early on the day of this coming March 10th, Gregory Daniel from Diptyque Paris will be at our store to provide a virtual tour of Diptyque’s factory in Paris, to provide personalized consultation regarding home and personal fragrances, and to answer questions regarding both Diptyque and fragrances in general. The following month, in April, American entrepreneur (and linens designer) Nancy Koltes will be at our store for a trunk show. Refreshments will be provided, more details are to follow, and we hope to add some additional events to our slate within the coming months!
