Century City pioneers the Karen Kane “Store within a Store”

Karen Kane, in order to better serve our customers, is beginning the process of making various “shops.” With this new layout, customers will be fully immersed in the Karen Kane lifestyle while shopping. The collection will have more room to be displayed, and will look more visually appealing. All of this is being done to improve the shopping experience for our customers.

One of the first of these stores just opened in Macy’s in Century City. We think it looks fantastic! What do you think?

Fashion Show In the Valley

Christmas is just around the corner and everyone in Southern California is getting ready for the holidays. What better way to celebrate the season than with a fashion show!

This week we did just that. I had 14 customers volunteer to walk in our Macy’s Valencia Karen Kane Fashion Show. The show featured all the newest holiday fashions.

Our December collection is called Cosmopolitan, it features cool grays, bright pinks, and all the must have trends. Sequins, lace and color blocking to name a few. There are tons of styles perfect for any city adventure!

Here’s some of the models taking a moment to get to know each other before the show. The bright pink really does look great on all of the women.

Karen Kane Team Member of the Moment: Amanda Hunter

At Karen Kane, we pride ourselves on seeking out great individuals to represent our brand and help bring it to life in the best way possible for our customers. Sometimes, we get lucky and those great individuals find us. Amanda Hunter is exactly one of those cases. I’m very happy to share Amanda’s excitement for our brand and provide you with a bit more of a peek behind the curtains of Karen Kane. I’d also be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to thank Amanda for being a truly stellar representative of Karen Kane. Her passionate enthusiasm and strong dedication to our customers make us extremely proud to call her a colleague and friend.

Amanda Hunter - Karen Kane Retail Merchandiser

Name: Amanda Hunter

Time employed at Karen Kane: 4 years

Position: Retail Merchandiser (regions covered: North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Virginia; stores visited: Belk, Dillard’s, Macy’s)

How did you end up working at Karen Kane? What was it like when you first started?

I was working for Belk, a large department store chain in the southeast, as an Area Sales Manager for the Ladies Better Sportswear area which carried the Karen Kane line.  I wore the merchandise, sold it to customers, and had formed a strong relationship with the Karen Kane representative that covered the area.  She noticed my passion for merchandising the product and enthusiasm when new groups would arrive at the store.  I really wanted to do more with Karen Kane as a company because I heard so many great things from our rep that visited the store.  I inquired about the position and the rest is history.  I have loved my job since day one!

When I first started, I really had to get to know my territory well to avoid getting lost! MapQuest (and later my GPS) became my best friends on the road – to this day I never leave home without one or the other!

What aspects of working at Karen Kane do you enjoy most?

I really enjoy working with my specialists and associates who sell Karen Kane.  Building the business and brand awareness has always been a personal goal of mine. I love working with customers and dressing them in clothes that make them feel good about themselves.  It is very rewarding to see customers living and embodying the Karen Kane brand.

What are some things you always hear on the road?

As a retail merchandiser for Karen Kane, I receive many customers asking whether or not merchandise fits well on them.  Without a doubt, the one question I always hear is:  ”Will my husband like this on me?”!!!  Needless to say, I have not received a complaint from a husband yet!

What’s your fondest memory working at Karen Kane?

There are so many fond memories, but one in particular really stands out.  It actually occurred a few months before my position came open.  The store where I was working received a visit from Lonnie Kane [Karen's husband, Lonnie, runs the company with her], his Vice President, and the Belk Account Executive at the time.  It meant so much to me and the people that I worked with and my specialist.  The Belk store where I worked was not that big, but consistently showed a strong business in Karen Kane.  They had meetings in the Charlotte area and wanted to come by and see this store.  Everyone was so nice and Lonnie was very personable and funny!  He brought a special gift basket just for specialist who had been in the position for 10 years.   When I found out about the job opening for representative a few months later, he and his team were one of the reasons why I wanted to work for Karen Kane.

What is something that no one at Karen Kane knows about you?

I can hold my own when it comes to talking about sports!  College basketball, MLB, NBA, NFL, etc.  Believe it or not, my favorite show to watch on Sunday morning is ESPN’s “Sports Reporters”!

Have you changed in any way since starting at Karen Kane?

I feel that I have grown up a lot and continue to grow everyday.  I credit much of that to the kind and caring boss that I have.  Shawn Hockney has been a great influence to me and one of the contributing factors for my success with this company. Also, all employees that I have met, whether they are in the showroom, factory, or one of the other RMs, have made some sort of impact on me that has helped me be successful.

What is it like to work at Karen Kane?

When I wake up every morning, I just enjoy going to my job.  Well, maybe not the 4:00 am mornings when I have to catch a flight… but once I get going, it is so much fun!  I love the fact that we are a small company because I feel that I have a voice and that I am heard.
