MAD MARCH

Well what a busy start we had to March. To kick it off we had the beachport Triathlon which was a great success once again the weather held out for us which was great. Abi entered the triathlon in a team and completed the swim leg in awesome time, she did amazing and their team “dunes ladies” finished second.

The weekend after was the long weekend which saw a lot of 4wdrivers and holiday makers down for the weekend in town. Here in the shop we had a busy few days, felt like summer again shop full, ice deliveries and bagging bait.

During this time we were also busy organising our site for the Lucindale field days which we had on the weekend. What a busy 3 days we had , Thursday we went over and set up and did so in record time (as we did with packing up), we were lucky this year to have Lou on board who normally would be away drilling but due to the weather we got to have him. I always have a fun time over at the field days with Abi, look forward to the next one, this year we had a 30% off summer clothing and deal on no deal on selected items which proved popular.

We were also involved in the fashion parades which were held twice a day, Being  part of the parades were great , it let us show people the variety of clothing we have to offer for all ages and sizes. We had busy periods after each parade with people wanting to purchase what they had seen. All in all we had a great field day and a good few days at the shop where Emma and Chris held the fought.  Bring on next years !!

About a month ago we received our delivery of Blu pod’s own pyjamas and towels which have been a huge hit. The fabrics are all so different and look fantastic and very comfy , come on in and check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

In the last few weeks we have had some great new Sadie and Seafolly pieces come in, great for a night out or casual outing. At the moment we are working on some new exciting men’s labels which we think will be a hit.

BRING IT ON !!!

Ciao

Summer Time

Well what a crazy couple of months it has been, Beachport has put on some amazing weather for the summer season with the whole town thriving.

Here at the shop we have had a great December /January, with our side business BOX-WRAP-SEND -PERSONALISED HAMPER SERVICE proving to be popular over the festive season. Another thing that proved popular was our storewide Australia Day sale which saw Blu Pod pumping to the tunes of the triple J hottest 100 and everyone in the mood for a bargain. With Australian bandanas, Blupod tops and our patriotic tattoos, Abi and I looked the part. Due to popular demand the sale continued across the weekend, with tourists and locals picking up great bargains.

This year was our first summer with kayaks to hire, they were a hit, if it wasn’t just for leisure it was for fishing or popping in the double kayak for couples to enjoy the beautiful scenery Beachport has on offer.

Surfboard and body board hire was huge with everyone trying to make the most of our beautiful weather. A large number of keen fisherman and divers have hit our waters and great catches were made; salmon at the salmon hole, whiting, snapper and flat head off the jetty, mulloway and gummies off the beach and good Cray and abalone catches for the divers. The increase in water activity saw Blu Pod double our tank refills and tank hire. A sign that more people are finding Beachport and loving the convenience of Blu Pods cheap air refills.

It’s always a blast working over summer with the team.
Abi, Lou, Emma and I had a great time, we all love it when it’s crazy, you could be in the shop one moment selling clothes, or rigging up someone’s rod, the next minute you’re out the back bagging up bait or ice.
You can never complain there’s not enough variety in our workplace.

Speaking of variety! Blu Pod attended the Beachport markets on the 7th of January with our DEAL OR NO DEAL auction game. Where the shopper gets to make bids on the Blu Pod items and takes away bargains – A huge hit and so much fun!  Holding my DEAL or NO DEAL signs and striking deals with happy customers, every one left with a smile on their face.

It has started to quiet down giving the Blu Pod team an opportunity to re merchandise the shop and attend the gift fair bringing exciting new stock to you!

Keep you posted

We’re Back!

What a busy few months it has been! It kicked off the October long weekend with our family friendly  community fundraiser fashion parade. Thank to all of our talented locals who supported the event as a model or spectator, your efforts raised great money for the wonderful bike track.

The Cray fishing season opened with the Blessing of the fleet to ask for good catches and safe seas for our fisherman. Blu Pod featured at the Beachport market day with Tiff hosting the inaugural  DEAL OR NO DEAL stall, which was a great success! Blu Pod and Tiffany will now continue to be a highlight at future market days (WHERE YOU GET TO DO THE DEALING) – Next Beachport Market : January Saturday 7th, 2012. What a great start to what will be a wonderful festive season.!!

We have had a lot of locals and tourists giving the diving and snorkelling a go, with great abalone and Cray catches to be had. Also our brand spanking new kayaks are ready to be taken out on the water, with a few locals testing them out and even having the chance to kayak next to a group of dolphins.  What an experience!. We have had some magnificent beach days lately which makes us all get excited for the months ahead. Time to get fit and get our bods into bathers . Blu Pod has a great range of boardies and Seafolly bathers to fit you out.

Now we are in the middle of the festive season and it’s starting to get crazy, the way we like it . We have been busy doing up Christmas hampers for our new side business BOX -WRAP-SEND , where we work with you to create the perfect gift through our professional gift questionnaire.

Welcome to Emma Chambers – Fantastic and enthusiastic Emma brings a great personality and creativity to Blu Pod. And with fishing in the family and her  Lovely husband Clint happy to share his  knowledge she can definitely hold her own across the store.

Of course Blu Pod is not Blu Pod without Tiffany – Tiff has had a huge year professionally and personally with a diploma in Retail Management underway and a greater set of responsibilities across BLU POD and BOX WRAP SEND. Tiff is also running rings around us all as she has lost over 40 kg along with conquering the Mt Gambier fun run with TEAM TIFF!. We cant help but rave about her.
