The Panera Trunk Show

April 22, 2011

Spinner sends an excited email Monday evening….”Good news, we’ve been invited to another tennis team trunk show.  By the way it’s tomorrow night and everyone needs to go – but it’s a fantastic opportunity and we cannot miss it!”  So I cancel the kids piano lessons and figure out how to rearrange a few other meetings, etc., in order to be there.

Several hours later another email by Spinner…”Nevermind, found out it was just going to be 8 ladies having dinner at Panera – not sure that there’s enough room for us!”

Now anyone who knows me, knows that I’m addicted to the Panera Greek salad – what is their secret?  But I must draw the line – I’m not dragging all of our samples to a far away Panera to barge in on their meeting, no matter how delicious the Greek salad.

‘Tho a thought did cross my mind, do we make a bad business decision for the comic material? What a potentially funny blog that would have made!  However, at the moment we’re all stretched a bit thin and trying the get ready for a two week sales marathon as the various opening summer golf and tennis seasons approach, while at the same time getting Fall ’11 ready for production and finalising the designs for Spring ’12.

How I long for the days when we had time to do something for purely the blog material!   So you’ll have to imagine your own funny story of the Panera tennis trunk show. Please share it here if you come up with a good one!

Have a Smashing weekend.

    It would have been a great photo op. Could have been in the Panera newsletter!! Or at least the police blotter for tieing up traffic as we sprint across the intersection with our grids

      Hi Max – Thanks for reading the blog. We always hope that when we go to a trunk show that there will be a big room for us to setup and more than 8 ladies to show our Smashing stuff. Love, Mom xoxo
