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!
