Pearl_and_Earl_for_iPhone__iPad__and_iPod_touch_on_the_iTunes_App_StoreSeptember has been a real ‘back to school’ month for  Pearl and Earl as we have started to put into action all the bits and pieces we have been working on in the background…  Today is a real moment for us here at HQ as we launch our first APP.  Live on Apple (and Android too) after months of approval.  It is a simple affair (not too many ‘whistles and bells’) that allows you to directly access our mobile online shop, and also all our social feeds, online magazines **yes they are coming soon** and brochures.. all from one place.   Designed in house with a little help from a lovely coder called Chris … we let out a little WHOOP when we saw it on our phones today!

Plus there will be exclusive offers and seasonal content… including this week a code for 20% off your order!
So what are you waiting for?  It’s free!

HQ NEWS: New Look Site Stage 1

Screenshot_22_02_2013_17_39We have been hinting at all the hardwork going on behind the scenes over the last couple of months, as new plans for Pearl and Earl start to take effect and the first customer facing stage launched today!

We are investing a lot of time and effort in our online presence, to support all of the product development we have in the pipeline.  We have found a fabulous UK partner to support our online development, and we cant wait to share the next stage, which is due to launch in APRIL.  But today we had the first facelift … as we start to work on sorting out our categories and back of house products and systems.

There are a few glitches, which we know about and not all the products are uploaded, so it will be an exciting series of ‘unveils’ over the coming weeks and month.

Hope you like it..  feedback always welcome x

Press: Living Etc goes Paper Bling for Christmas

Back in at the beginning of the Summer we had a large press request from the fabulous team at Living Etc – one of our favourite home style magazines.  Amongst other things they needed 120 blue and mini fans!.. and we wondered just what on earth they were going to do with them all.  But seeing the multi page results in this months Christmas edition, we are absolutely thrilled with firstly how amazing it looks… (Loving the blues and purples as an alternative theme)..  and secondly just how much coverage they gave Pearl and Earl and our paper decorations!

The style team also used plenty of our metallic curtains which added a lovely backdrop in the lounge and dining schemes.  Our decs were also called in to decorate one of the homes, and finally were used in the ‘ask the designer’ section of the magazine – when advising a reader what was hot to update their Christmas decor, the answer was Pearl and Earl!

Hope you feel as inspired as we do by their vision… and how fab to be recognised for our hard work in the press.
