Jewels for Japan

Almost one month ago, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake rocked Japan creating powerful tremors and a devastating tsunami. Worldwide people have been stunned by the photos and videos and felt a deep sadness in their hearts for the people of Japan.

A few days after the tsunami I had a meeting with Megan LeForte of Stella Polaris Studios. (Yes she is also the jeweller who will be having a Mother’s Day trunk show/Design-Your-Mom Jewellery event here at the shop on April 16.) She had come in to drop off her gorgeous Swarovski crystal jewellery collection made specifically for Love, Me. We talked about this current event and talked about what can be done. Megan took action. “I want to do something. I need to do something.” Within minutes of us meeting over her collection she had already decided she would design a red Swarovski crystal cluster necklace and matching earrings to be auctioned off via herself and Love, Me.

Hearts for Japan Silent Bid will work like this:

Aftershocks are continuing to be felt in Japan. They could really use any and all help. If you are feeling like you would like to do something, consider this auction. Keep the bling for yourself or give it away to your mom or a girlfriend.

Mia Mama!

Mama Mia – here we go again. My! My! Yes my dear sweet friends, Mother’s Day is fast approaching. While our store is chalk-a-block with gorgeous lovelies for mama, we do have something extra special up our sleeve.


Our gal Megan LeForte, from Stella Polaris is going to be having a trunk sale at Love, Me Boutique on Saturday April 16th 11am – 1 pm. Megan’s line Stella Polaris is the perfect mix of elegance and simplicity with a touch of colour and shiny bling action. But…this is no ordinary trunk sale. Megan will be here with her stock pile of pearls, gems and crystals for you to help design something extra special for your mom.  This “design yourself” jewellery event will allow you to design something with your mother in mind. You could make a firery red earring set for your sassy mom or a romantic pearl cluster pendant for your classic mom. 

The DIY option creating too much pressure? No worries! There will be plenty of Stella Polaris finished product to choose from.

Come by for tea, treats, and make mama something that will make her sing.

Please note: Meghan will not necessarily be making your order on site. You must be able to come back to Love, Me to pick up your finished item (available from Saturday, April 23 on – in case you need to get yours in the mail.)
