From our guest blogger, John Eaton
Spring has sprung. I went to the flower market the other day and it was bursting at the seams with fresh blooms. There were so many varieties, each with it’s own magnificent color and texture. My favorite had to be the peony—especially the pink peony. There’s something about its simple elegance that I find so appealing. I struck up a conversation with one of the flower vendors, and found out that much of the current peony supply is imported from Europe, specifically the South of France, as well as Holland, which is also known for their amazing tulips.
We’re all pink peony fans here at the office, so much that it’s become our ‘unofficial’ official office flower. We routinely display them in huge arrangements at meetings, parties and events for the brand. Bobbi has a particular fondness for pink peonies and has even created blush and lip shades in their honor. She also has this signature scarf that’s the exact hue of the pink peony—she says the striking shade always makes her feel more put together. And the next time you’re in one of our stores, look closely and you’ll probably notice “pops” of pink peony throughout.
