The Avon Lady & a Giveaway
Recently, when I returned home from my last vacation of the summer, I was pretty psyched to receive a special gift compliments of Avon. There's something about Avon that has always evoked positive memories for me. The first takes me back to the 1970's when Sylvia, who worked part-time as a school aid, used to ring our bell monthly to sell my mom her Avon products. Even though we knew her name at the time, the moment the doorbell would sound my brother and I would belt out, "The Avon lady is here!"
While many decades have passed since Ruby used to visit our home, I still found Avon products to be incredibly useful. Especially when my kids were young, all the new moms would tell me I had to buy Avon's skin so soft to protect them from mosquito bites (incidentally, that's one of those words of wisdom items that's passed on from generation to generation).
Then, about two years ago, Avon invited me to attend the ultimate experience of my life - a two hour roundtable chat with Suze Orman. Suffice it to say, the team at Avon really knows how to empower women by supporting their entrepreneurial and philanthropic spirit. Plus, their brand new online store is pretty amazing - offering everything from make-up, skin care, children's products, perfume, clothes, accessories and jewelry too - all at affordable prices. I'm starting to think I should be an Avon lady, but I digress...
Where was I? Oh...back to my goody bag. Upon opening the box, I discovered a fabulous purple tote bag (which I am currently using as my weekend bag), a matching dress, and jewelry to complete the ensemble. While I've staked my claim on that purple purse, here at Role Mommy, we're offering the dress and accessories as a giveaway to one of our fashion savvy readers (incidentally, the dress is a size medium so keep that in mind when you enter).
Just comment on this blog with your email address, name and fondest Avon memory and we'll be selecting a winner within the next two weeks!
Disclosure: I received a tote bag, dress and jewelry in order to craft my review.
