Thanksgiving Weekend Sale Details

With most things in life there are some fine details that may easily be overlooked. We try our best to be open and honest about everything we do so we will share the fine print related to our 2018 Thanksgiving Weekend Sale Event

Free Shipping offer: Any order placed between the start and end of this sale will be eligible for Free Shipping if their cart total at time of payment is equal to or greater than $10 after all discounts are applied and before tax.

Sale starts Wednesday (today) November 21, 2018 and will end Midnight Monday November 26, 2018. Each day of this sale there is a new ONE DAY ONLY item placed on sale. The daily item will only be discounted for the 24 hour period starting at 12:00am on that day. If one wishes to purchase more than 1 day’s item they must complete a new transaction/order for each day.

If an order is placed for more than 1 day’s item, and any 1 of those days did not meet the minimum $10 threshold for Free Shipping, we will refund any paid shipping if all orders/items are being shipped to the same address for the same customer – regardless of payment method. We want you, the customer, to reap the full benefit of this event.

All orders will be consolidated and fulfilled starting Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Our shipping center will be closed as of 12:00pm Wednesday, November 21, 2018 and will reopen Monday, November 26, 2018.

Other details:

Sales are limited to current in-stock quantities at time of purchase. Shopping Carts are not being stored – that means, once you leave the site your cart will automatically be cancelled within 2 hours. This is to ensure our products are available to those who will be buying them and not tied to incomplete or abandoned shopping carts. No other discount code or coupon can be applied to these products (Most other discount offers exclude Sale Items already anyway). All items will be shipped to the address provided. If you wish to place orders as gifts to be sent to more than 1 address, please contact us before placing an order.

Thank you, J&L

Holiday 2018

The Holiday Season is very important to us here at J&L. We never know when it really begins for us. From years of working retail before we started this little venture it always seemed like Veterans Day became the unofficial start of Christmas shopping, but for most it is Thanksgiving that starts off the Holiday Season.

There are so many wonderful celebrations that take place during this time that we cannot properly give them all the attention they deserve and keep this post short. What we will do is let all know that as part of us encouraging all to embrace their own individuality we wish all of you to celebrate any days that mean the most to you, your family and your friends in any manner you choose.

We have some great plans for this year, starting off with our biggest sale event ever. Sales are not something we do often, but when we do it is done as best as we can. This Thanksgiving Weekend we will offer up a great bargain price on a new item each day. 6 Days of Deals! Our standard Free Shipping threshold was reduced to a $10 order minimum for this sale event.

There will be a couple promotional specials in December to help with last minute stocking stuffers and thank you gifts for those on your gift giving list.

2018 has been a big year for us with lots of new products, numerous behind the scene improvements and tweaks to our J&L Pogonotrophics packaging. We hope to end this year with a lot of new friends and happy customers who will continue onward with us into 2019.

All of you mean so much to us and we wish you all the best this Holiday Season. We thank you all very kindly,

John & Larry

Into the Scent Matrix

We honestly love producing so many varying scents. From traditional basics like Lavender and Citrus; to our very one-of-a-kind creations like Jakarta, Oceania and the new Shanghai we try to give a broad array of fragrances. Our hopes are that you will find at least one you love and others you like. It actually has been hard for our customers to decide which scent they like most.

Outside of our Beard Care lines we have not done the best job at sharing the scents across many of our products. People want to coordinate their fragrances and we have not been so good at meeting that expectation.

As we transition through some older options in scent and products, we are going to establish our most popular fragrances that will adapt well to other products and bring them to more of our most popular items. So far we have identified 9 scents that will be available in either Beard Care or Body Mist; Shower Wash; Bar Soap; and solid colognes.

Our all new bar soaps are expected to launch in a few weeks and we will highlight the coordinating products shortly after.

We will also bring back our popular holiday scents. We skipped it this last holiday season and disappointed many fans. This year we will have the Beard Oil scent and the Body Mist scent with coordinating Shower Wash and Bar Soap. We will also build these into our gift sets as well!

Keep a watch for when we announce our new bar soaps to see what we are talking about!
