Don’t Doubt Pink Power – Especially When It’s a Luxury Jeweler

Anyone who knows us (or our website, offices, logo) knows that we have a special place in our hearts for the color pink. It’s just an energetic hue.

But don’t take it lightly. Pink is the color of choice for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is this month, when pink stands for survival, strength, courage, faith and triumph. Of course, in recognition of this important month, so many companies and brands are coloring their products pink. This includes one of our clients in Boca Raton, Raymond Lee Jewelers, top jewelers in South Florida.

Raymond Lee Jewelers’ pink picks look spectacular AND they make you feel good: 15 percent of all October pink gemstone sales from Raymond Lee Jewelers’ line goes to the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute.

Raymond Lee Jewelers’ exquisite pink jewelry includes:

A 30 carat pink sapphire cuff - $5,295
A 30 carat pink sapphire cuff – $5,295
A pair of fancy pink princess cut diamond earrings - $4,495

We’re calling it Pink Power making people look fantastic, all while donating to a good cause.

Our Offices Are Award-Worthy!

Friends and fans who follow this blog know how much fun we had accessorizing and decorating our new Durée & Company offices. With the sparkling tiles and modern artwork, it didn’t feel like work. It was a way to make our office space match our fashion sense.

But for Eloise Kubli, our designer extraordinaire at Collective Construction & Design, Inc., the interior design of our office was work: work worth showcasing. So, she entered Durée & Company’s office suite into the American Society of Interior Designers Florida South Chapter’s Design Excellence Awards 2013, and we won!

On Sept. 28, at the Design Excellence Awards 2013 Rhapsody in Red Gala at CityPlace in West Palm Beach, Eloise won the award for Workplace/Office Design. A huge “thank you” and hug to Eloise for all of her ingenuity and hard work, and thank you to ASID for recognizing her and us.

While it’s great fun to decorate and design your “home away from home”, it’s even bigger fun to win an award for exercising your imagination and creativity.


Doing good doesn’t get much easier than this – at BRAVO! & BRIO

When one demonstrates great “BRIO”, one deserves a “BRAVO!”, don’t you think? “Brio” means enthusiastic vigor and “bravo” is a shout of approval.

(If you didn’t know, we won’t tell!)

And this month, both BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille restaurants are making it easy to dine with enthusiastic vigor while earning shouts of approval, during Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

Brio Sunday

Guests of both restaurants have until Sept. 30, 2013 to donate funds to the No Kid Hungry campaign by simply adding $5 or more to their bill upon checkout. With every donation, guests receive $5 off their next visit of $15 or more, valid thru Oct. 31, 2013.

Also through Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, BRAVO | BRIO Restaurant Group, Inc., (NASDAQ: BBRG), owner and operator of BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille, will donate $1 to the No Kid Hungry campaign for every new “Like” on BRAVO! Cucina Italiana’s and BRIO Tuscan Grille’s Facebook pages (up to a maximum of $2,500 per brand).

Doing good by donating to help children eat nutritious meals nationwide couldn’t be simpler. Last year, a variety of restaurants nationwide raised more than $5.9 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign. This year, Share Our Strength wants to top that number. You can help with a little extra added to your check at BRAVO! or BRIO (which turns into a discount in October) and/or a mouse click.

BRAVO! for your BRIO in advance!
