Blingfest VII

Blingfest VII BlogPost - Graphic Insert to Blog Text (Aug2018)

Blingfest returns to Jack Lewis Jewelers from Friday, August 24 – Sunday, August 26, and it’s once again poised to be the premiere diamond, engagement ring and wedding band shopping event in Central Illinois this year.

To refresh your memory: as a rule, when it comes to how many shapes and sizes of jewelry we can carry in-house on a given day, space constraints force us to draw the line somewhere.

So what is Blingfest? Blingfest obliterates that line.

For one weekend only we’re making space and offering you the following:

  • hundreds more loose diamonds than normal (which means lower prices)
  • hundreds more rings and wedding bands than normal (which also means lower prices)
  • 36-months interest free financing, which is a full 2 years longer than normal, and the longest financing option we’ve ever offered…….OR…..10% off your entire purchase of any regularly-priced Blingfest merchandise.

This is all stuff we don’t usually offer in the store, so that’s why it’s essential you flip your mental switch into “Blingfest Buying Mode”…because once the weekend is over, we have to scale back down again.

As if that’s not enough, we’re bringing back these popular offers for Blingfest:

  • Any engagement ring purchase during Blingfest gets you a free engagement photo session (if you want to take advantage of it)
  • Any engagement ring purchase during Blingfest gets you free access to our Ring Cam box and/or our Pic Ninja program, should you want to capture your proposal via hidden camera!
  • Wedding bands will be 15% off.
  • There’ll be a special section of diamonds and engagement rings priced at 50% off, while they last…

(…oh, and the discount offers can’t be combined. Sorry.)

And we’ll also be resurrecting our Facebook gift certificate giveaways, featuring 10 different winners and $2,000 worth of freebies. The big drawings will happen Friday morning (August 24), so if you’re reading this after August 20 but before August 24, you still have time to go find the appropriate thread on the Jack Lewis Facebook page and comment in it for your chance to win.

So get busy living and get busy Blingfesting on August 24, 25 and 26. Come in ready to make some amazing purchases. If you know it’s time to propose but have been dragging your feet, Blingfest is a good reason to finally come get the diamond. If you’re ready to buy an engagement ring but don’t think you can afford it, you’ll be able to afford it at Blingfest. If you’ve spent months unsuccessfully looking for a specific diamond, or ring, or band, or diamond ring band…you will succeed in finding it at Blingfest.

There’ll be all kinds of diamonds, all kinds of rings, of all shapes and sizes, at all kinds of prices. Blingfest is like a jewelry warehouse exploded in our showroom. Blingfest is when the roof opens up and it starts raining extra diamonds, extra rings, and longer financing in our showroom. Blingfest is the 3-day supercharged, powerhouse, monster truck version of Jack Lewis, ready to hulk smash you right in the face with more bling in our showroom than you can possibly imagine. You think you can imagine it. You’re wrong. You can’t.

Whichever phase of Blingfest grabs your attention most, remember that it’s for one weekend only

Friday, August 24th from 9:30am  – 7:00pm

Saturday, August 25th from 9:30am – 7:00pm

Sunday, August 26th from 10:00am – 5:00pm

So get Blingfest on the calendar. Snapchat your friends about Blingfest. Text your enemies at 3am about Blingfest. Instagram a #nofilter of you overnight camping outside Jack Lewis waiting for Blingfest. We don’t do stuff like this very often, so we promise it’ll be worth it.

 

One other thing….. Blingfest is for everyone, even if you’re at the very beginning of this engagement ring shopping process and you’ve never stepped foot inside a jewelry store before. You can just wander in off the street on a whim on Friday, browse around, come back on Saturday to narrow it down, then come back on Sunday to make the purchase.  You don’t need an appointment. You don’t need tickets. You don’t need a reservation.

BUT…we never know how busy it will be from hour to hour during Blingfest weekend, so if you would like to make an appointment with someone on our staff to guarantee that you’ll have immediate attention when you show up, you’re welcome to “register” for Blingfest by clicking the link below and setting up an optional appointment!

The Search for the Secret Ruby

Jack Lewis - Search for the Secret Ruby (Square Graphic)

On Friday night (Nov. 17), 200 boxes will be stacked inside Jack Lewis Jewelers. Each box contains a prize, but 1 box contains the Secret Ruby…and whichever woman finds it gets to choose & take home a piece of Roberto Coin jewelry…for free! 

It’s “The Search for the Secret Ruby,” a uniquely mysterious, fashionably fun, ladies-only evening featuring the jewelry of Roberto Coin, hosted at JackLewis Jewelers. The search begins at 6pm, box selection starts at 7pm, and once everyone in attendance has a box, we’ll open them all at the same time, revealing the winner in one exciting moment! 

We’ll have food & ruby-tinis on-hand, plus we’re including a TON of other giveaways & incentives Friday night…so ladies, TAG your girlfriends and bring a crew, because this will be the fun girls night out you won’t want to miss.

Need more info? Check out all the details below:

——–

First, here’s all the extra incentives we’ll have going Friday night:

 Squad Goals – if you arrive in a group comprised of at least 3 women, each of you gets a $50 Jack Lewis gift card. Yep, just for showing up & trying on jewelry with a group of your girlfriends, you’ll each get gift cards. You can use it that night, or you can use it over the next few weeks. It’s up to you. You just have to use it by the end of the year. So tag your tribe, because that’s a pretty cool incentive.

 Model Photoshoots – there’s gonna be some legit Roberto Coin jewelry in-store Friday night. We want you to have fun trying it on, so we’ll have a professional photographer on-hand to take high-quality pictures of you as you have fun modeling the jewelry. These pics can be sent to you…or better yet, we can add them to your Wish List File and forward them to whichever special someone might be looking to buy you some presents this holiday season. After all, men don’t always know what to get you. So imagine how much easier their shopping will be when you can show them how great you already look wearing it. 

 15% off anything you decide to buy that night. Getting pictures taken and completing a Photo Wish List is awesome, but if you love it so much that you need it right now, it’ll be 15% off Friday only. (excludes Rolex and Alex & Ani.)

 Food, Drinks & Music. We know this event kinda runs through the dinner hour, so we’re having plenty of amazing food catered-in, along with beverages (including our special Ruby-tini), and a high-energy soundtrack pumped through the speakers. It’ll be a party.

So in addition to the headlining contest, we’re creating an evening full of fun for your squad to get prizes, try on jewelry, and be fashion models at Jack Lewis! But as for the contest…

Here’s how “The Search for the Secret Ruby” contest will work:

 We’ll begin accepting contestants at 6pm Friday night. You’re free to arrive anytime between 6p – 7p, but there’s an incentive to arrive early (more on that in a minute). So starting at 6pm, we’ll give you a number based on the order in which you arrived. Once you get your number, you can start ‘searching’ for the boxes that will be stacked in clusters around the showroom. During this period, don’t touch the boxes, don’t take a box, and definitely don’t open a box! This ‘searching’ is a fun time for you to walk around and see where all the boxes are, get the lay of the land (so to speak), so you can identify which one “feels like your lucky box.” Also during this time (6p-7p, as everyone is arriving), we hope you’ll have a drink, shop around, try on some jewelry, get your pictures taken, and make a Wish List! But again, please don’t touch, take, or open a box during this time.

 At 7:00, we’ll gather everyone’s attention, and make an announcement that it’s time to start selecting boxes! We’ll dismiss you in groups according to your numbers, and you’ll get to go pick your lucky box at this point. So for example, we’ll start with numbers 1-10, and let those 10 women go choose a box. When they’re done, we’ll release women with numbers 11-20 to choose their box, and so on…until all the women in attendance have chosen a box. Do not open your box! Please just hang onto it and wait until everyone has a box…

 Once everyone in attendance has a box, we’ll do a dramatic countdown and you’ll all open your boxes at the same time! This should be a fun way to reveal the winner! If you have the Secret Ruby in your box, you win!

 But here’s the fun part. We don’t know how many women will be in attendance. I mean, we hope 200 women show up, but it’s very possible we’ll have more boxes than women…which means it’s possible that during our first round of box-opening, no one finds the Secret Ruby! So that’s where arriving early and securing a low number becomes important. Because the women with the lowest numbers will be the first to choose another box! So we’ll release numbers 1-10 again, then 11-20 if needed, and so on if needed…and during this second round, you’ll open your box as soon as you’ve chosen it! We’ll do this until someone finds the Secret Ruby!

THE PRIZES…

 Inside each box will be a prize of some kind. Some boxes will contain Alex & Ani jewelry, while other boxes will contain Jack Lewis gift cards. So even if you don’t find the Secret Ruby, you won’t be leaving empty-handed!

 But for the lucky woman whose box contains the Secret Ruby, you’ll then get to choose a piece of breath-taking Roberto Coin jewelry from a select group of 3-5 pieces, which we will have on display. You can pick whichever piece you like best! And it’ll be yours, for free, to take home with you Friday night!

That’s it! Sounds like a fun girls night out, right!

We’ll explain most of that again on Friday night when you and your girlfriends arrive, but we wanted to give you a detailed rundown in advance, so you know exactly what you can expect. The contest portion should probably be wrapped up by 7:30, but after that, we’ll stick around until about 9pm so you can continue to shop, try on jewelry, snack, drink Ruby-tinis, make Wish Lists and buy some jewelry!

See you Friday night at Jack Lewis starting at 6pm for “The Search for the Secret Ruby”!  

The Mighty 90

Jack Lewis Jewelers - Mighty 90 (FB Graphic)

We’re celebrating our 90th birthday by offering you a shopping spree like nothing we’ve ever done before.

Starting at 11am each day, you have 90 minutes Friday (Sept 15)…and then another 90 minutes on Saturday (Sept 16). During those 90 minutes, 90% of our store will be up to 70% off. Seriously.

The “10% exception” is Rolex, but everything else…if it’s out in the cases, it’ll be part of the celebration, which means it’ll be somewhere between 50% – 70% off. All of it. Every visible piece.

But only this Friday & Saturday. And only for 90 minutes each day (from 11am – 12:30pm). So make plans to be in line….we’ll open at 11am sharp Friday and Saturday.

Additionally, just for coming out, you’ll be able to pop a balloon for a chance to win a pair of diamond studs, Jack Lewis gift cards, or extra discounts! (While balloons last)

It’s our 90th birthday, but you get all the presents.  The Mighty 90 happens this weekend at Jack Lewis!


More info:

The store will not open until 11am each day (Friday & Saturday). So if you’re outside waiting to get in, please form a line that wraps toward the bank (in the opposite direction of the bread store, so we’re not getting in their way.)

When you get in line, you’ll receive a colored index card which guarantees your entry into the celebration and places you in a group that determines the order in which our staff will assist the next customer in the event of a busy rush or a confusing situation about who’s ‘next in line’ to be helped.

As long as you’re inside the store (or, depending on the crowd, outside the store but in line waiting to come in) at 12:30pm, we will still honor the 50% – 70% off discounts on your purchases, even if it’s, for example, after 1pm by the time you get to the checkout counter.

No rainchecks. Nor can we hold things for you on Friday so you can come back and buy it during the Saturday block.

Also, just for super extreme clarity, as mentioned above, the 50% – 70% off discounts only apply to whatever non-Rolex jewelry is out in the cases on the days of the celebration. If we’ve decided not to make certain pieces of jewelry part of the celebration, we’ll just leave them in the back and won’t bring them out front during these 90 minute periods. But don’t worry. We’ll still have plenty of amazing jewelry out in the cases, and lots of it.

Blingfest returns to Jack Lewis Jewelers from Thursday, August 24 – Sunday, August 27, and it’s once again poised to be the premiere diamond, engagement ring and wedding band shopping event in Central Illinois this year.

To refresh your memory: as a rule, when it comes to how many shapes and sizes of jewelry we can carry in-house on a given day, space constraints force us to draw the line somewhere.

So what is Blingfest? Blingfest obliterates that line.

For one weekend only we’re making space and offering you the following:

The contest post will go live on Monday, Aug. 21st and the big drawings will happen Friday morning (August 25), so if you’re reading this after Aug. 21 but before Aug. 25, you still have time to go find the appropriate thread on the Jack Lewis Facebook page and comment in it for your chance to win.

Made for Mom Workshop

Psst… hey Dads. You need a Mother’s Day idea. We have one for you. Check this out.

Thursday through Saturday, we have little assembly stations set up around the store where your kids can come in and make a piece of jewelry for Mom. There’s cords, beads, stickers, cardboard, crayons…all the fun stuff that goes into awesome kid-made jewelry.

IMG_1576

And when they’re finished, we’ll wrap it up in a Jack Lewis box and make it look official.

Imagine Mom’s face on Sunday morning when she’s given a Jack Lewis box, and she opens it to find a little bracelet or necklace handmade by her kids.

Admit it, you’re getting misty-eyed just thinking about it. It’s pretty much the greatest Mother’s Day gift idea in the history of ever.

And it’s completely free. Seriously. No games. No purchase necessary. This whole Made for Mom Workshop idea is totally and absolutely free. The piece of jewelry they make with the beads and cords will be free. The official Jack Lewis box we’ll wrap it in will be free.

Just bring your kids in and have some fun creating a card and a piece of jewelry for Mom.

IMG_1579

Honestly, there’s no combination of gifts in the world that can adequately reward a Mom for all she’s done. But we hope these inadequate gifts can bring a smile to your Mom’s face because of the loving spirit behind them.

Happy Mother’s Day from Jack Lewis Jewelers!
