Can you believe that the month of January is already over? It seems like we just came back from our holiday break and now it's February. Before things start to ramp up with spring sports, we want to take some time to reflect on the past year at Evil Lizard.
Looking back on 2016, Evil Lizard had a busy year. We welcomed three new team members: Bailey, Heather, and Kylie. Bailey came on board in May after interning with us and does the social media and ordering and has become a valuable asset to Evil Lizard. Heather started in October as a graphic designer and has been learning a lot and producing wonderful designs for our customers. Kylie joined the team in the fall as an assistant to the graphic designers and helps out with various tasks around the office. We're so lucky to have these ladies on our team!
2016 presented many opportunities to learn new skills and showcase our work. We attended the Imprinted Sportswear Show in Atlantic City to learn about what's new in the apparel industry and picked up on some techniques we're still using today. In June, we made giveaway bags for the WISH 99.7 Purse Party. Hannah and Bailey attended the Purse Party event and said it was a fun night supporting a great cause! Evil Lizard was at the Central Valley Community Day and also Ambridge CommUNITY Car cruise- both events were a lot of fun and we enjoyed getting to interact with current and potential customers.
Also in 2016 we began opening our second location in Sewickley. This will be a storefront with a boutique feel where we will have items for sale and take orders. We're getting close to opening so keep in touch for important details about the opening!
Finally, we wanted to thank our customers for the great year that we had. We enjoy working with all the individuals, businesses, and organizations who come to Evil Lizard who give us the opportunity to show off our skills and abilities!
We're looking forward to what 2017 has to bring!
