A Few Quick Updates

I just wanted to share a few quick updates and notes, both for AG related news, and general site news. ^_^

AG:
*Note: All of these are rumors and not confirmed fact.*

1) Maryellen's Seaside Diner comes in pieces, similar to Caroline's Parlor, and not all in one piece like Grace's Bakery.

2) Maryellen's Airstream Trailer will not be released on Aug. 27th, but with a later release.

3) Caroline's official sell out date is Aug. 27th. (The date is confirmed fact.) I believe if stock remains, she can still be ordered on the website, but she will not be in stores to make room for Maryellen and her collection.

4) Girl of the Year 2016, Lea Clark, has been twice described to me as similar in coloring of hair color, vinyl, and eyes to Kanani by those who have seen the full sized doll in person. :/ Take that with a grain of salt until we get more details/leaks/photos.  ^_^

5) Josefina's mini doll and third book will be coming out on Aug. 27th, but other than Maryellen, no other new outfits/new items til the Winter release, along with the new Truly Me items and Holiday outfits.

Site Updates:
1) The postcards from the Summer Postcard Exchange have been printed out and will be cut this week. Hopefully they will be ready to ship by the beginning of next week.

2) The giveaway linked to the bi-weekly Etsy shop features that was scheduled to go live Monday, July 27th is on hold due to a post office delay. Once the items arrive, the giveaway and feature will be posted. If there continues to be a problem with the post office, the next feature/giveaway will go live on Monday, Aug. 10th.

3) There are several photostories in the wings, as well as the next part of the Sewing With Lissie & Lilly series. In addition, there will be several photos and stories from Lissie and Lilly's summer road trip through central USA. It will take some time to get them up, but when they are posted, they will be added to the Lissie & Lilly Episodes page.

4) Classes have started back up for me so I will not be able to update and post as frequently as I would like. I will do my best however, but I did want to give people a head's up. ^_^

Thank you all so much for taking the time to read Lissie & Lilly! I always appreciate the comments and suggestions, and I hope you all find the posts fun and informative. Have a great week!

  1. Thanks for the updates! Hope you enjoy your classes this term.

    I am curious to see what the new Scottsdale store does for the 'space' where Mary Ellen will be. It opens 8/22-22, so are they going to have Caroline for just one week? Seems like a waste of effort. Curious.

    1. Thank you! We're starting with neuro and that's always lots of fun. ^_^

      I never thought about that, but you bring up a good point. I wonder how Scottsdale is going to handle it, because like you said, it seems rather pointless to have Caroline's collection for only a week. My guess is it probably won't be stocked and that display case will be left closed until the 27th. The other possibility is that as part of the grand opening of Scottsdale, the store could have Maryellen early and release her before the other stores.

  2. I missed the post card exchange. I recently joined. That would have been super cool to do! Do you do this only in summer? I think it would be cool at Christmas time, too!

    1. This was the first time I've hosted a Summer Postcard Exchange and it was a lot of fun with some really great designs, and I will definitely try to do this again next summer if I have the time. Unfortunately, I will not be hosting one at the end of the year due to lack of time, but I hope you'll be able to participate next year!

  3. Thank you for the updates! I'm sorry I couldn't find time to join in the postcard exchange... life has been hectic around here. It would have been fun, though, and I hope you'll have other exchanges of the kind in the near future!

    It must be hard to be back in school at this time of the year... Good luck with your classes!

    1. Thank you for the good wishes! ^_^ No worries on the postcard exchange. It was really fun and some great designs were sent in so I am planning on doing this again next year as long as I have the time. Hopefully you'll be able to join in on the next one!

  4. I can't wait to see the seaside diner! I had no idea there would be an airstream trailer. That sounds mega expensive, but really fun. :)

    1. I'm surprised Maryellen has so many expensive (potentially) pieces in her collection but I think Grace's bakery has done fantastic so I'm sure AG is expecting girls to want big sets with many pieces to play with.

  5. We've been in the US all summer but we fly home to England on August 24th. I can't believe we'll miss Maryellen by three days!! I'm a big fan of 50s styles, so I think I'm going to love her...

    1. Oh that's such a shame! I hope you'll be able to order some of her collection. :) I'm a big fan of her outfits. Don't hesitate to email me or message me through Google+ if you ever need me to pick up anything and ship it to you in the UK.
