2018 Year in Review
2018 was truly unforgettable! Join us as we look back on some of our favorite moments of the year…
JANUARY: Inheritance of Hope Retreat
In October of 2017, we committed to sponsoring a Legacy Retreat with Inheritance of Hope, a non-profit that inspires hope in young families facing the loss of a parent. That retreat came to life in January when we took 10 families with a parent facing metastatic breast cancer to Orlando, Florida for a memorable weekend.
MARCH: Kendra on CBS This Morning
Gayle King visited our Home Office in March to interview Kendra about how she built this business, our company culture, and all the lessons she’s learned. Haven’t seen the feature yet? Watch it above!
June: Our Sweet sixteen
We celebrated 16 years of Kendra Scott by donating our birthday to Children’s Miracle Network! On June 16, every single Kendra Scott store hosted a day-long Kendra Gives Back event for their local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, and our web customers were also encouraged to donate. In total, we raised over $130,000 for pediatric hospitals across the country.
September: The Charms Collection
At the end of September, we introduced our Charms Collection as a new way to personalize your look, with a range of custom charms and versatile accessories that bring your unique style to life.
September: Our First New York Store
This fall, we opened our first-ever store in New York – and have been painting the city yellow ever since.
October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month
We partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to create a giveback suite that supported breast cancer research and awareness. This suite raised $125,000 for our $250,000 research grant, The Kendra Scott Award in Honor of Holley Rothell Kitchen. In addition, our annual Holley Day celebration raised $100,000 for Inheritance of Hope, supporting a Legacy Retreat for 20 families with a parent facing metastatic breast cancer.
November: Our New Flagship Store
Eight years after opening our very first store in Austin, Texas, we introduced the new Kendra Scott Flagship, an indulgent brand experiencing featuring our Sips & Sweets Café.
