Green Friday at Mountains of the Moon
In the shopping world, the day after Thanksgiving is known as "Black Friday." It's the busiest shopping day of the year, and the day that retailers go from "in the red" to "in the black." For the second year in a row, Mountains of the Moon is doing our part in turning a day based on money and consumption into a day to help the both earth and our wallets! It's easy to choose the big box stores in the current economy crisis, but we're making it even easier for you to save money and make a difference. For every purchase you make between now and Monday, December 1st, you can participate in Green Friday by entering GREENFRIDAY08 in the coupon code box at www.mountainsofthemoon.com. You'll automatically get a whopping 25% off your order and we'll make a donation of 10% of the profits from your purchase to Climate Cycle, a non-profit organization working to reduce global warming and empower our youth to become leaders in an emerging green economy. Be a part of Green Friday this year! You'll also get a free recycled, hand-tied book mark with your purchase. Coupon code must be entered at checkout to redeem. Not valid with other coupons, gift certificates, or store credits.

Mountains of the Moon News
It's been a jam-packed month for the Mountains of the Moon crew! In early November, Designer/President Melissa Baswell was chosen the winner among a group of Chicago's top Fashion Designers by the Joffrey Ballet and the Apparel Industries Board for her dress design for Clara in the Joffrey Ballet Nutcracker. Melissa, who chose sustainable vintage fabrics for the design, will be honored at a Press Conference in early December in Chicago.
Melissa and Rachel recently returned from a wonderful week in San Francisco for Green Festival. Last week, we also participated in Glitter: A Holiday Shopping Event put on by the city of Chicago for Chicago Designers and Boutiques. Many thanks to all of you who stopped by our booths!
Our spring '09 designs are complete and production will be starting in just a few weeks! We are please to present our Melissa Baswell Eco-Luxury line for spring, in addition to our Mountains of the Moon Eco-Fashion line. If you are a boutique/retailer, please contact ASAP us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your line sheets. Both collections will be available in stores and on our website in early March '09.
