Do you shop at Avon? Do you get excited when you come home to find the newest catalog hanging from your front door? I sure do!
I live in a condo and townhome complex. There are 400 condo units and 300 townhome units. You would think this would be a Avon representatives dream location. Oddly enough we don’t have a regular Avon rep. We used to but she moved. I miss seeing the catalog hanging from my front door.
I have enjoy Avon products ever since I was a young girl. My mom purchased Avon products every month. Occasionally I had the chance to order something too. I couldn’t wait for my mom’s Avon rep to pull into our driveway because I knew our stuff had arrived.
About 15 years ago I tried to sell Avon. I was a stay at home mom and I wanted to bring in a little extra income for my family. Sadly I wasn’t very good at selling Avon. I couldn’t sell a bottle of water to a man dying of thirst in the desert. The profits I did make went to buying Avon products for myself! I couldn’t help it. There was always a product or a piece of home décor that I had to have.
Did you know that back in the 1960′s and 1970′s Avon featured a 4 “A” log on everything – from product packaging to make up and fashion accessories. I didn’t know that.
The four A’s represent “Anytime, Anywhere, Always, Ask”.
The logo looks like this (you’ll notice the “A’s”).
To link Avon’s past with it’s present (and future) the brand has decided to use the logo to create Avon’s Signature Collection which will consist of fashion and jewelry pieces.
One of their first pieces in the Signature Collection is the Mailyn Tote and Wallet.
I received to review both the tote and the wallet. Each is piece is a rich chocolate brown and features gold tone hardware and the beautiful Avon’s Signature 4 “A” motif.
I have a 16 year old daughter. I THOUGHT I would be able to hold on to this set for myself, but the moment she saw it she begged me to let her have it. The set is so lovely that my teen and myself both love it.
I still have both pieces in my possession but my daughter keeps begging me to let her have them. If only one piece she wants the tote. She said it’s the perfect size to go shopping and hanging out at the mall with her friends.
My daughter loves bags and has a big collection of them. She really wants to add the Mailyn tote to her collection.
I love the log design. It adorns not only the material the tote and wallet are made out of but there are also gold tone decorative pieces attached to them.
The tote is just the right size. It’s not too big and not too small. It’s great for what I need it for. I just need a place for my wallet, car keys and cellphone with a little extra room for other essentials like hand cream and lip balm. The wallet also has enough room for what I would need it for. It’s fully lined and has one pocket with a zipper and another one you can slip things into (like your keys or cellphone). There is one snap closure on the bag.
The tote is great for casual use. You can take it with you while you run errands or to work. It’s also fancy enough to take it on the town with you.
I tried to take decent pictures but my camera is broken and I only have my cellphone. I wish you could see just how lovely the set is. It’s so much nicer in person.
The wallet features six slots for credit/debit/gift cards and a zippered interior section. The wallet is also fully lined.
Both pieces are made with a faux leather-like material.
The tote and wallet are just the first pieces in the Signature Collection. New pieces will be added over time.
The tote sells for $39.99 and the wallet sells for $19.99.
