In the News: Absolutely Memorial Magazine shares what’s in Tysh’s Stella & Dot bag!

I am so thrilled that Houston’s Absolutely Memorial magazine asked “what was in my bag (my Stella & Dot bag, of course!)”. This fun interview ran in the April 2014 issue! You can check out my interview on page 24!


Plus… here are a few links to the items featured in my interview!

Now tell me… what’s in YOUR Stella & Dot bag? ;)



Stylist Spotlight: Amanda Embry

Star Stylist Amanda Embry

          Stella & Dot Star Stylist Amanda Embry

Meet the Gemstones’ Star Stylist Amanda Embry from Frisco, Texas. Amanda launched her Stella & Dot business in March 2011.

What is your “why”? Fashion Health!!! I truly feel that when a woman takes time to care for herself and accessorize a little, she will feel so much happier!  It’s a known fact…when you look good, you feel good! There is nothing I enjoy more than styling a few friends and helping them achieve their maximum style potential!  It creates confidence and joy…and that makes me happy!

What is your favorite blue card purchase? It pays for my cute little silver Porsche Carrera and designer shoes!


What is your favorite Stella & Dot piece? Probably the gold On the Mark arrow necklace. All of my closest friends now have it, too. To me, it symbolizes friendship and also being a part of something special. We all wear it facing the same way to symbolize that we are all heading in the same direction.

Please share your top tip(s) for booking, selling and/or sponsoring. Be passionate and be genuine when sponsoring.  A smile is contagious and so is the passion for this business. I tell my potential stylists my “why”….then work on getting them excited for their own “why”. Best part is, it doesn’t need to be the same!!! 

For booking, I text cute pics of the product. A lot of times, I put the customer’s number in my phone while they are checking out, and tell them I will follow up via text. Anytime Home Office is offering extra incentive, I use a cute pic and send it out. I also offer something at the trunk show if they book on the spot, even if it’s free shipping on me, sometimes that’s all it takes!

For selling, offer up a way to finish the look: ask about gifts for upcoming holidays, etc.  And now, Dottie (our amazing iPad “Stylist Assisant” application) makes all of that super easy! At least half of my customers now get the Trunk Show Exclusives!

Stylist Spotlight: Shelly Morrison Kepner

Stella & Dot Stylist Shelly Morrison Kepner

Meet Gemstones’ Stylist Shelly Morrison Kepner from Frisco, Texas who launched her Stella & Dot business on May 23, 2013.

What is your “why”? WHY NOT??  I have LOVED the Stella line for the past 2 1/2 years and I truly believe in the product and wanted to be able to share it with others and decided NOW was the time!  I also felt that Kelly would be an awesome leader to work under…and I was right!

What is your favorite blue card purchase? Husband’s birthday trip to Vail

7. What is your favorite Stella & Dot piece? If I have to choose just one Stella piece as my favorite, right now it would be the Kahlo bracelet!!!  LOVE it!

Please share your top tip(s) for booking, selling and/or sponsoring. I really try to book early and think ahead. When I first became a Stylist, I just concentrated on my first 2 months of my Jumpstart period, ensuring I had consistent trunk shows set up during that time… now, I want to have a full calendar of trunk shows so I am call past hostesses, my top buying customers and others who were interested in more pieces than they initially bought when attending a trunk show (I made notes on their order forms/wish lists of the items they pointed out to me). I have been consistently following up with those customers, planting the seeds in their minds of how much in Style Rewards they could receive by just having their girlfriends over for some wine and to catch up.


The Kahlo Bracelet!
