As many of you are all too well aware, October is breast cancer awareness month and this year, Atelier Shoes is getting involved in more than one way! We recently partnered with breastcancer.org to specially design a pair of heels to be auctioned off as part of their 10-year anniversary, Rock The Ribbon, celebration. The Antoinette shoe, as shown below, is a silver metallic satin wedge, with a custom-designed pink ribbon charm. The winner will have the Antoinette shoe made to fit following the auction. All proceeds from the auction will go to breastcancer.org.
Atelier Shoes has also specially designed a signature shoe for our very best friend Lisa Lee who recently lost her battle with breast cancer. Lisa was a beautiful and loving mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend and we, more than anything, wanted to make her proud. Lisa, like every other woman, loved shoes and she was one of our first supporters and biggest fans. So, without further ado, we present to you the Lisa shoe--a small 2 1/2 inch wedge heel in camel and pink, with the signature pink ribbon on the heel patch. The Lisa shoe is available for purchase for $85.00 (including shipping) with 50% of the proceeds to be donated to breastcancer.org. The Lisa shoe is available for pre-order now by visiting the Design Your Pedestal PINK page in the Atelier Shoes' boutique.
And, finally, beginning on October 1st, 2010 and running through October 31st, 2010 we will be hosting the Design Your Pedestal PINK campaign. During this campaign, any custom designed shoe orders using the color pink and placed through our Online Design Studio will result in a donation being made to breastcancer.org.
