Five Ways to Celebrate Spring

It may not feel like spring where you live (hello mountains of snow and chilly, chilly nights!) but the calendar says it's here! So, in the spirit of renewal, here's a short list of ways to celebrate the new season.

1. Bring the outside in. If wildflowers aren't quite blooming outside your door, bring home a fresh bouquet of seasonal flowers. My favorites are daffodils or peonies from Trader Joe's. If you don't have a totally brown thumb like me, try some potted plants like orchids or even an herb garden on your windowsill. 

2. Bake a refreshing treat. These lemon tart bars scream spring to me.

3. Take a long bath in spring-scented bubbles. These rose bath bombs look like a luxurious way to inhale the spring time -- without the sneezing.

4. Stop and smell the roses. If you live in a major city, try escaping to a botanical garden for the afternoon. Sip iced tea and stroll among the fresh blooms. I'm looking forward to a visit to Cheekwood Gardens to enjoy some of their tulips!

5. Refresh your wardrobe. A new pair of skivvies might be all it takes to shake the winter blues and put a little pep in your step. Might I suggest the At First Blush Set? The flattering peachy tone works well on all complexions, and the gold threads throughout the lace correspond to the dots on the elastic for a subtle shine that'll be you feel fine.

Out With the Old

As Married & Bright moves into a new sales model {hello, quick turn-around time!}, some things have to be sacrificed. Today we say goodbye to hundreds of beloved designs, in order to make way for the Spring 2017 Collection.

I'm so excited to share with you the upcoming designs, so here is a tiiiiiny sneak peek.

I know, that's not much to go on, but picture lots of lace, leather, metallics, and beautiful new prints and textures.

If you want to me among the first to get access to the new collection -- Cheeky Mail subscribers get access 24-48 hours ahead of the general public -- get on the list now. The collection launches March 15th. Mark your calendars.

Times They Are a'Changin'...

First of all, happy New Year! The holidays were such a whirlwind {thanks for that by the way!}, and even though it's late in January, I feel like I'm finally coming up for air and getting my ducks in a row. 

Some exciting changes are coming to Married & Bright and I'm looking forward to sharing all of them with you! Don't worry, all the lingerie is still handmade in the USA by me, and it's all still gonna be super cute, body positive, and designed to make you feel awesome. Those things will never change. 

The first bit of news is that I will be moving towards a ready-to-ship, rather than a made-to-order business model. This will help be better serve more customers and insure an awesome shopping experience for more and more people as Married & Bright grows. 

What that really means for you is that you'll be getting your golden mailer full of fun lingerie even faster. Instead of waiting up to 5 days before your order is shipped {that's the bit where my nimble fingers are working hard to cut, sew, snip, and package}, your order will get packed up and shipped the day after you order it! That means that if you order on a Monday, you could be wearing your lingerie on Wednesday and doing a big happy dance in front of your mirror.

It also means that I will be limiting the inventory that I carry at any time to a few basic staples, and whatever the current collection is. Hey, I have two hands, and hundreds of styles! As a side effect of limiting the amount of products listed on the site, it means that some styles will be headed for early retirement.

Before I cut off access to some of your most beloved designs, like the Pineapple of My Eye in White and Black, Out of This World, Written in the Stars, Flower Child, and the Retro Collection, I'm putting them in The Top Drawer. TTD is like the Disney Vault -- lots of designs are gonna go in there and they might not make it out again. I have high hopes that fan faves will make it out during the spring and summer months as part of future collections, but if you've had your eye on a certain design, grab it now while I can guarantee it'll be available.

The Top Drawer is going to close on February 15th, so be sure you go in a buy what you want now! Never fear, I will still offer custom sizing, so if you're looking for a size that doesn't appear on the chart, I'll make you're entire order bespoke so it fits like a dream. I have also opened up an area on this site to take custom requests. If you have an amazing idea for one-of-a-kind lingerie, are looking for something you don't see here, or just wanna mix it up a bit, fill out this form to get a custom quote.

I can't wait to share more about what the future holds for Married & Bright and I thank you so much for being a part of this journey!

Too long, didn't read --

- Pretty soon, things are gonna ship faster!
- Everything on this page might disappear forever, so if you see something you like, get it while you can.
- If you want to order something completely custom, there's now a super simple way to get a quote!

The Twelve Days of Married & Bright

Get ready for the biggest sale of the year! The Twelve Days of Married & Bright is nearly two weeks of daily deals that will be super hard to pass up. Think quick, though, because each deal only lasts 24 hours and when they're gone, they are gone!

I'll be delivering each day of deals via Instagram in conjunction with my favorite insta stars, but to be sure you don't miss a coupon code, join the mailing list below!
