Lifeguard Press is really excited to share with you TWO (yes, two!) items of the week for March 29 – April 2, 2010. Both are 15% off, both are fantastic gifts (so stock up!), both are perfect for the summer …
First featured is the Lilly Pulitzer Notecard Book in Crabtastic Blue. This adorable “book” features ten foldover cards that pull out when you are ready to use them, and a little pocket for your envelopes. What a great way to keep your stationery organized! (Hint: Great for kids to take to camp this summer.) Features five different notecard patterns, two of each.
Secondly, our Jonathan Adler Market Bag is 15% off this week, too. This bag is your perfect “going green” bag … with style! It is a great market size to carry to your local farmer’s market, Target, and for your daily errands. So many reasons to carry this sturdy and versatile bag … but we are mostly looking forward to carrying it to the beach this summer! (Oh, and it would make a grand Easter Basket this weekend!)
Enjoy! Call Lifeguard Press at 800 992 3006 this week to stock up on the fabulous notecard book and market bag.
Receive 15% off when you mention this blog, facebook or twitter.

On a recent trip to the New York, we picked up an issue of the New York Weddings Magazine and swooned over the “I Heart Jonathan Adler” cake that was featured. We immediately started looking at the new Jonathan Adler Stationery & Gift items as wonderful ways to celebrate weddings. The tumblers for beverages, or cocktail hour, are too chic for words. And, the photo books are great for guests to remember the fun evening! We even love Jonathan Adler’s salt & pepper shakers from his pottery collection as cake toppers – like the set featured here in “Mr. & Mrs. Muse.”
At Lifeguard Press we also feature Jonathan Adler’s letterpress correspondence cards. These colorful, letterpress cards are perfect to write thank you notes on … and for invitations! The paper is so luxuriously thick that we recommend having them letterpressed by your local letterpress printer, or we are happy to do them for you. Save the Dates, Cocktail Parties, Rehearsal Dinners, Engagement Parties, Showers … the possibilities are endless! (And, don’t forget the stylish Jonathan Adler ink pen to address your invites.)
Jonathan Adler’s new Stationery & Gift line from Lifeguard Press is perfect way to add “Happy & Chic” to your wedding day!
Jonathan Adler’s Stationery & Gifts can be found at Jonathan Adler and Lifeguard Press.

We love Susan Branch here at Lifeguard Press! Seeing all of her products on a daily basis gives us the “warm fuzzies” on the inside. She has such an amazing talent, and we love that you can see her love for friends in her artwork. It is almost like she signs each piece “with love from Susan Branch.” It inspires us to sit down and write a note to a friend with her Create-a-Cards, and our to-do lists seem a little more cheerful on her notepads.
And, at Lifeguard Press, we love Susan Branch’s website! Her “Girlfriends Forever” book is one of the most precious books ever published and we loved creating a fun stationery collection inspired by it. The little quotes, sweet art and yummy recipes makes us eager for a party (and maybe a spontaneous road trip!) with our girlfriends. She even has free tea party invitations!
Check out her latest Girlfriends Stationery & Gift collection at Lifeguard Press. And, while you’re browsing, here’s a little recipe for you to enjoy. This Susan Branch Recipe for “Three Layer Carrot Cake” is reason enough for a party … just don’t forget the fun favors!
