I’ll be the first to tell you I get butterflies every time a magazine asks permission to feature one of Janery’s fabulous pet beds. And each time, I temper it with, “This is all awesome, but I won’t really get excited until I’m in Oprah Magazine.”
And then I opened the email that changed everything.
Janery's is in Oprah Magazine.
Page 65 of the May issue, to be exact. They featured our luxurious waterproof dog bed, the Charlie Cushion in Emerald Leopard.
When I got the news, I did what every self-respecting entrepreneur who has created a business from scratch and great fabrics would do--in this order.
- Called my husband.
- Googled to make sure the email was real--and found the Oprah team to be an engaged group who, on top of having fabulous taste in pet beds (ahem), are also supportive of smaller artisan businesses.
- Ended the day with celebratory champagne and a French macaron from my favorite patisserie.
- Set to work, determined as ever to make sure Janery - and its customers - always have chic, comfortable, life-worthy products at the ready.
Thank you for proving that form and function have a place in the homes of style-minded pet owners. While I wish Charlie and Merlin were here to see this, I’m happy knowing that hundreds of wonderful pets like them have chic, welcoming, and durable soft places to land because of what they started. Yours included.
Oprah’s magazine has always been on my list of favorite things. The next milestone: To be on hers.
PS: Since you’re not here to share my champagne, I wanted to give you something equally bubbly and celebratory: an invitation to an exclusive VIP-only sale. They’re enjoying a secret discount on everything Janery! I invite you to come clink glasses with us before the party’s over.
