Elizabeth & Clarke Spring 2017 Box Spoilers + Coupon!
Here are the upcoming Elizabeth & Clarke styles of Spring 2016! (Thanks, LT, for the head’s up!)
If you aren’t familiar with this subscription:
Elizabeth & Clarke is a women’s clothing subscription box – and they specialize in just shirts and tops! They make all their styles in-house, and only do a limited amount of new designs each season, so they are able to keep the prices very reasonable. Each season you get to preview the tops and pick your favorites. (There are usually 3 new tops, and a few classic styles they have available every season).
FYI: Pricing has changed for 2017:
Today, I am launching my Spring 2017 Collection for Elizabeth & Clarke. I was inspired by Paris in the spring and have created for you three beautiful blouses: The Charles, a cap-sleeved blouse in a lovely French blue, the Davin, a white blouse with delicate, asymmetrical knife pleats and a double-layer of fabric throughout to provide 100% opacity, and the Laurent, a relaxed cream-and-blue striped blouse that I imagine the most chic Parisian woman wearing on a spring day. I am even more excited to announce that all of the Spring 2017 styles are Unstainable®! No need to fear wearing white or cream to the office this spring, we integrated our incredibly popular Unstainable® technology into the Charles, Laurent, and Davin. I hope you all love this easy, elegant collection.
On a related note, and the reason I am writing this to you personally, is to let you know that, beginning on March 15, 2017, we will be increasing the price of each subscription plan to $60 for 1 shirt, $50 each for 2 shirts, and $40 each for 3 shirts for all current and past subscribers. For new subscribers, that price increase is taking place today. All current and past subscribers can receive the higher-value Spring 2017 box at their former plan price of $20, $25 or $30 per shirt. If you are a current subscriber you can choose shirts by logging in to your account. If you are a past subscriber and would like to reactivate your account, please email [email protected]. If you would like to sign up for a new subscription, you can use the code CMSA10 at checkout for 10% off your first box.With this price increase, we hope to be able to return to the beautiful designs we launched with five years ago. At the price of $20 – $30 per shirt, we simply can no longer afford to make the high-end blouses and sweaters you love. Costs have increased significantly since we started the business in 2011: the cost of cotton has increased, the cost of paper has increased, but mostly, the cost of labor has increased.
The kind of designs we love to make with intricate paneling, beautiful draping and layering, and complicated asymmetric patterns, require professional seamstresses with experience and skill. Simply put, these professionals are not cheap.
Beyond this, we are committed to ethical labor practices and paying a fair wage. With this price increase, we will be able to continue to provide our seamstresses with a living wage and return to the classic, high-end blouses, sweaters, cardigans, and long-sleeve tops you love.
Additionally, and even more exciting, we will now be able to offer almost every style with our Unstainable® technology. Every style that uses our signature cotton/modal knit, Crepe de Chine, and Ponte de Roma knit will be treated with our Unstainable® technology. We are working to develop other fabrics with this technology as well. After the success of our Unstainable® Shirt and Workwear Kickstarter campaigns, we knew we had a hit on our hands – and we have been working for almost a year behind the scenes to adapt our supply chain to combine these two businesses together.
We are also announcing a few more exciting new changes: two new sizes (Women’s 16 & 18) and Sweat-Proof™ & Odor-Free technology in all designs with a knit lining.
I feel that even at the price of $40 – $60 per shirt, the additional value matches the increased price. I am committed to Elizabeth & Clarke’s mission of providing women with beautiful, functional, and work-appropriate clothing while providing its makers with a living wage. I hope that you agree.With Shirts & Love,Melanie MooreFounder &CEO
Here are the new Spring Styles:
The Unstainable Charles
The Charles will give you a ‘French-girl cool’ look for spring. This lovely French Bleu Crepe de Chine cap-sleeved blouse has an elegant open tie collar for a minimalist, yet classic detail and uses our Unstainable® fabric technology to repel all water- and oil-based stains. The Charles is a great day-to-night option whether you are taking a stroll through your neighborhood park or hosting a fab dinner party!
The Unstainable Laurent
If you are looking for the perfect ‘weekend in Paris’ style, then the Laurent is the blouse for you! This charming cream-and-blue striped Crepe de Chine blouse has two hidden snaps at the bust for extra coverage and uses our Unstainable® fabric technology to repel all water- and oil-based stains. The Laurent will look amazing paired with your favorite pencil skirt or light wash ‘boyfriend’ jeans this season.
The Unstainable Davin
The Davin is a polished white Crepe de Chine blouse. It has delicate, asymmetrical knife pleats and a double-layer of fabric throughout to provide 100% opacity. The Davin also uses our Unstainable® fabric technology to repel all water- and oil-based stains. This blouse is perfect for layering underneath a blazer for work or pairing with your favorite trousers or A-line skirt for an exquisite, yet effortless look.
