Luxury Lane Soap has been working around the clock finishing up the Holiday rush and going over inventory for the new year. There are tons of new products in development and just as many giveaways planned for the next few months ahead. Until then, here is a delicious chocolate cupcake for you to drool over. swoon

Right? Yum…

Please feel free to leave a comment below with any suggestions you have or any ideas for what you would like Luxury Lane Soap or Hemp Bath to bring you in the new year!

First Quarter Recap…i.e…Longest Post Ever…

Our first quarter is almost up and there has been a lot going on over here. ♥

New Site Design
A few weeks back I thought I would code a quick string of HTML, for I don’t even remember what, and exploded my entire site. LuxuryLaneSoap.com was down for ten solid hours while I sat and pretended to learn CSS…After much reading and cussing, I was able to revamp and redesign LuxuryLaneSoap.com to its current version. If you haven’t seen it yet, give it a quick look and do let me know if you catch any mistakes here and there. All cart systems, security and links check out…so basically I am asking if I made any major spelling errors…

New Products
First of the year sales are always pretty low. With the Holidays just getting over and taxes being…well the hell that they are…luxury soap products do not tend to be high on purchase lists. However, this opens up a little breathing room to create new products resulting in a record breaking quarter for product development! Unicorn Carousel Soap, ThunderSoap, Alliance Ration Bar, Vintage Shaving Soap, Pure Clean Whipped Moisture, Dreamsicle Delight, Lip Lovin’ Butter Balm

New Newsletter
Finally! Keep up to date with all that is new at LuxuryLaneSoap.com and get sneak peeks at what is cooking in the Lane Laboratory. You can also look forward to mini tutorials from our very resourceful, yet lacking tweeter, @Rory_Lane. You can subscribe right HERE.

New Location
Luxury Lane Soap will be moving this summer! After almost half a year of searching for the right location, a new home has been found! With space to breath and room to stretch, you can look forward to a huge boom in development and production in our second half of 2011. I am currently mulling the idea of having an epic summer slumber party to thank all of you for your continued support and constant encouragement. Ideas? Shoot me an email!

What’s Coming Up?
Our second quarter is going to be an interesting one… Trying to shift locations while keeping up sales is going to be intense. I mentioned earlier that I will be bumping up the marketing on twitter, facebook and tumblr to help make up the sales I may lose not being online full time. This does NOT equate SPAM. It means I am shifting to more open involvement, sharing pictures of what I am making and how it is made. If I can’t sit at the computer and tweet with you all, then I am bringing you all to work with me.

More Variety
I have received a few emails stating that while the Vintage Push Up Shave Soap formula is wonderful/amazing/superb, the packaging tends to be a bit frustrating for everyday use and large area shaving. I agree it its harder to use for an entire leg, though it does work wonderfully for under arms and customers have also mentioned the size and shape is perfect for beard touch ups and travel. So, I will not be discontinuing this product for all of you who have fallen madly in love and for those looking for something larger, expect to see an additional version early second quarter.

Product Rename
Ultra Rich Organic Soap has been changed to Vegan Organics. Why? A few reasons. Firstly, it is shorter. With the new website layout, long product titles look sloppy. Secondly, you would not believe the amount of emails I receive daily asking if my soap is vegan. Yes. Yes it is. It always has been and it always will be. Do I use organic ingredients? Same answer. Yes. What about sustainable vegan organic ingredients? *nods* Yup. Sure do. “Vegan” and “Organic” and “Natural” are all heavily used buzz words nowadays and honestly, I appreciate customers who research where their products are coming from. Many companies are attaching these words to chemical crap and Luxury Lane Soap means to redefine what you expect from a high quality, natural soap.

One Last Thing…Really.
Thank you. ♥

It’s just that time of year…

Hey everyone! Wanted to get an update up here since I have been MIA these past couple of days. (Trying to get to emails as fast as possible!)

After an explosive sales week, Luxury Lane Soap has hit record highs and we (@Rory_Lane and I…) are literally working around the clock making these orders fresh for you. Currently we are about 72 hrs behind shipping schedule. If you have ANY questions at all about your order, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will get get to you as soon as possible. ♥ I will NOT be charging extra for rush shipping. If you need your order this minute, I completely understand. Just let me know. And a huge thank you for your understanding.

Now that the business part of this is out of the way…I have a couple of personal things going on which are adding to the delay…

My son has pneumonia and his needs come first. He had been sick off and on for a few weeks and as soon as it seemed he had it under control, his temperature would shoot back up to 102. My Dad is here with us helping take care of Trent so that we can work, but PLEASE understand, if my little boy is crying for me to hold him, you are going to have to wait an extra day to get your order. There is no other way for me to put that.

This is another reason why I am not charging extra for rush shipping. It is my responsibility to get these orders to you and I will.

Annnnd, today is my birthday! AND GIANT SQUEEZE for all of the love you guys have been sending me over twitter/email/text/facebook! I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally but I am just being slammed with life right now. (Read above…) It means a lot to me that you have taken the time to wish me a happy birthday. Really. ♥♥♥

So…like always, please feel free to contact me with any questions you have about your order status or to simply tell me you think I am great. ♥ Hope everyopne is staying afloat and having a great Holiday season!!

xoxo
