Shop In A Box: Let's Get This Party Started!

Jessica Porter

By: Jessica Porter

If you haven't already heard, Market Colors has just launched a new way for you to get involved! And it's called...Shop In A Box. It's a super fun way to have a little something extra at the next party you're hosting. Whether it's for your gal pal's b-day, a potluck at your office, or the next chapter meeting with your sorority, a Market Colors Shop In A Box is an innovative way to gather people together and do some shopping as well.

Before we launched, I couldn't resist hosting a Shop in A Box event myself. I mean...any excuse to call my friends, cook some yummy food and throw a party right?! Market Colors just released their summer line and texting my girls about the new fabulous accessories just wasn't cutting it. I kept thinking, "Man, I want them to see everything close up! I want to see their faces when they try on jewelry!" And boom-lightbulb! By hosting a Shop In A Box event, I could do just that!

Ok, when I tell you guys that this was way too easy, I'm not exaggerating. The only thing stressing me out was deciding if I wanted to buy a fruit tray or a vegetable tray. (I went with the veggies...hummus was bogo.) But for real! I already had my box with all the sample products ready to go. I set up a little table out on my patio, threw a blanket over some shoeboxes and baskets and just laid out all the products. SO SIMPLE!

My girls arrived, we caught up for a bit about life and whatnot, filled up our plates with snacks and sat down to watch the Market Colors video. I loved sharing this with them before they started shopping because it made looking at, and interacting with the pieces so much more impactful. 

I propped up my mirror outside so we could try things on, see how they looked, get some opinions etc. 

I had SO much fun hosting this Shop In A Box! It was a new way to share Market Colors with my friends and a fresh way to bring everyone together.
