Mustang Shar asked: What color pallets are we seeing for Spring and my favorite season, Fall 2013?
Dear Mustang Shar,
There are always certain colors that I gravitate to, such as neutrals and colors I call my woodsy colors…Olives, Tans, Browns etc. Jewel tones are always part of my color pallet. This spring summer, besides the classics I really like “Fiesta” colors, Turquoise, Hot Pink, Lime, Sun Shine Yellow, and Nectarine mixed with black and white…..a lot of white. I am also interested in a soft pallet, not exactly pastels. Hemp. Smoke Grey, Sea Foam, Flamingo, O... Continue Reading

I hope you are all ready for my jam-packed TWO-hour show tomorrow, October 19th, from 4 – 6 PM ET. Jill will be accompanying me to help present the collection to you, and I am looking forward to working with her. I know she is excited about the show too. I will have THIRTEEN NEW ITEMS in MULTIPLE COLORS…that’s a lot of new! The collection can be separated into two groups: the HOUNDSTOOTH CHECK GROUP and the JEWEL TONE GROUP. I’ll give you a sneak peek of a few of these pieces.
The HTC group consists of the zip front jacket, A229469, the pencil skirt, ... Continue Reading

From Monday, July 30th to Monday, August 6th, I will be on QVC for a total of SIX times. I started off on Monday with my appearance on PM Style with the beginning of my “Transition into Fall” group. It’s a marvelous “SCARF TOP” available in color choices Pale Olive, Chili Pepper and Straw. The clothes can be worn right now and into September, October, November and beyond. I call these colors “Indian Summer.” Think of the bouquets of Indian corn that you see hung from the front doors of homes. Pale Olive, Olive, Stone, Straw and Chili P... Continue Reading

Tomorrow, May 11th, I will be making THREE appearances on QVC as part of Summer Fashion Days – A Nonstop Style Event.

We will debuting my new “WHISPER KNIT” sweater, A224717, in BLACK and APRICOT, which is a brand new color for me. It reminds me of a candy box with satin ribbons. There will also be a new georgette tiered skirt with a pleated border in the same two colors of APRICOT and BLACK.
Next, I will be with Shawn Killinger on QCheck beginning at Noon... Continue Reading

This Thursday, April 26th, at 1 PM ET, I will be having a two-hour show. Albany will be joining me to help present to you what should be an exciting show. There are lots of new things and some really terrific reorders coming your way.
There’s a short safari dress in my signature shantung fabric and a wonderful maxi dress in a new cotton/spandex knit fabric. There will be pieces that I consider ESSENTIALS for any woman’s wardrobe: a shrug sweater to go over many of your sleeveless tops and dresses; a pair of cotton sateen capri pants with a cuff in white, navy and black; and a very...

I hope all of my East Coast friends are doing well with Hurricane Irene!!! Jac and I are leaving early Saturday morning due to the storm and have decided to wait and come home on Monday after the storm has passed. The pups are going to their sitter’s house, who lives inland. As you know, I live on the Connecticut coast, so I am praying there won’t be too much damage when we get home. It is out of our hands.
I hope you have all visited my web site, louisdellolio.com, for full descriptions of what will be on the show. I have also planned lots of “SNEAK PEEKS&r... Continue Reading

If you've never been to Lake Tahoe, let me tell you, it's a gorgeous place. If you had a chance to check my Facebook page lately, I'm sure you saw some of the pictures. (And I was just using my cell phone!) If you haven't seen them yet, they're still posted. From snow tubing and cycling to the beautiful scenery, we had a great time. I highly recommend it.
So, I'm back for PM Style this Monday, and we have a great line-up planned. Dr Adrienne Denese will be here (who's as beautiful as she is intelligent), Michael Kaye will... Continue Reading

We were all taken by the sad surprise of Jeanne Bice’s passing. We heard the news along with all of you. I knew Jeanne for the 10 years that I have been at QVC. There wasn’t a time when we passed each other in the hall at QVC, or at our hotel, that she didn’t come over and put her hand on mine and say something positive. Jac was used to Jeanne popping her head into the green room and wishing her luck. I understood her philosophy of “Sparkle and Shine”. It wasn’t about just sequins on a T shirt……for her it was a way of life. It meant going out i... Continue Reading

Memorial Day is the unofficial opening day of summer and the girls had a ball putting flags all over the garden, at least the ones they didn't try to eat!
It is a challenge getting them all in one picture so we thought a collage might be better.......see you all June 17th, much love, Louis, Jac, Annie, Lili and Samantha

Here it is — part three of my conversation with Louis Dell’Olio! (Did I mention how much I loved talking with him?) Anyway, in this segment, Louis tells me all about Anne Klein — “sportswear” innovator and savior to the modern working woman. Anne gave us the gift of flattering separates, as opposed to ill-fitting, one-size-fits-all suits. I had no idea she was the first designer to ever have a “corner” in Saks Fifth Avenue. But it’s easy to see why — as Louis explains.
Never fear — I won’t leave you hanging there. P... Continue Reading

Here's part two of my sit-down interview with Louis Dell’Olio — finally, I know. This week, Louis tells me how he got his career started after Parsons School of Design and how he transitioned into becoming design director for Anne Klein. Did I mention he spent six years in the Army reserves? That’s just one of the surprises in this week’s video blog.
Who knew Louis grew up with Donna Karan? Keep watching for part three where Louis will share more surprises and explain just how important Anne Klein was to the world of women’s fashion.
Also, here&rsqu... Continue Reading

Was it only a little longer than two weeks ago since my last show? For me, it seems like ages since we were last together. Jac and I have been extremely busy. Jac’s schedule has been crazy, between chauffeuring me around to therapy three times a week, and taking care of the furballs…..who said taking care of three is the same amount of work as two….not! That’s not including all of the running around she does all day, and I’ve been busy getting these next shows together, plus working on Spring 2012…..it can get very tiring doing it all lef...

When I started my video blog last fall, I asked, “Who would you like to see in future vlogs?” Well, you gave me lots suggestions, but one of the most frequent ideas was an interview with legendary sportswear designer, Louis Dell’Olio. Louis has been coming to QVC for over 10 years, but his love of design really started as a child. In part one of my conversation with Louis, we discuss his early years and how he took his love of sketching and turned it into a career.
Louis’ time in the Army was just one surprise I found in our conversation. Over the next few ... Continue Reading

Samantha Elizabeth....Sammy...is home! Jac made a 6 hour round trip on Sat. to MA. to pick her up! She has met her sisters, Annabel and Lilabet! There is a lot of sizing up and positioning going on! Sammy is holding her own and has found places to hide from them. She is a little lover....loves being held and gives lots of kisses. She is going to fit right in and I'm sure they are going to be best pals. I'm surrounded by my girls, and it's great......much Love, Louis
