Invicta Cruise

• You are enjoying fabulous cuisine while tuxedo- dressed waiters dance on the tables

• You are dancing 

* You are partying  

• You are diving for watches 

Wow” and “yes, please,” right?   

That is exactly what happened in mid-February on Invicta’s Ocean Voyage to the Bahamas!  For 3 days, Invicta collectors from all over the country, Evine’s crew, 4 hosts and 2 guests boarded that Carnival cruise ship for the experience of a lifetime!  
For me as a host, it was the event of my career!  Meeting so many Evine and Invicta fans face-to-face was unlike anything else I had ever experienced before. There was this crazy energy from everyone just because we all are a part of this really cool event.

There was a feeding frenzy of everyone trying to get their hands on the latest Invicta timepiece, but there was also  something different happening that was really palpable and very special. There was a warmth, a feeling of gratitude and, most importantly, a feeling of friendship, family and community. To feel so connected and so in touch with viewers was an extraordinary experience I will never forget.  I know who so many of you are now, I have met your wives, your husbands and your children.  You are the vein of why I love what I do.  It was my pleasure to have shared this incredible adventure with you and I thank you for the beautiful memories.

1375991_10201259939885853_1848613689_nThe definition of Remote (distant/unlikely to occur) aptly describes Evine’s “Invicta Remotes.” Not only do we travel to distant/exotic locations, but when you see what has to happen from a cliff on the far side of a near deserted island, it is astonishing that our crew is able to pull off a live broadcast from these remote destinations.  These remotes are a metaphor for what Inivcta has been able to offer customers at Evine for the past 15 years. Prior to our partnership, high quality watches had been unattainable and unaffordable by other brands and were unlikely to find their way into customers collections…Invicta via Evine is making these quality timepieces available and incredibly affordable to our customers!

Blue Stallion FarmInvicta remotes have taken us to Invicta’s headquarters in Florida where we’ve broadcast from Invicta’s Warehouse, the Invicta Marine Pavilion on the Intercostal, and the Blue Stallion Farm.  The most difficult to plan for were the Farm remotes as the temperatures were often over 100 degrees during the day and in the 40’s at night. We never knew if we would be outside in the blistering sun or freezing rain. They were also the most difficult as the beetles and mosquitoes were relentless at night.  The freakiest thing that happened one night on air was when a screeching hawk with a frog in its mouth flew right above our heads!

CaboThe most luxurious locations we have traveled to are Cabo and the Riviera Maya areas in Mexico.  Our most difficult broadcast by far was from Staniel Cay in the Bahamas where the crew worked around the clock everyday pulling miles of cables to remote cliffs and beaches around the near deserted island.  They spent hours lighting shark invested waters for our night broadcasts.  I liken this remote to summer camp…the roughing it kind!  We braved the elements of extreme heat and rain (we escaped the day before the hurricane hit and destroyed the island) and bonded the same way I did with my fellow girl scout campers as a teenager.

I can not say enough incredible things about the remote crew…the lighting crew, floor directors, camera operators, models, stylists, visual staff, sales managers/producers, control room, directors, etc. who all work tireless hours in difficult conditions without ever a complaint.  I also want to thank Eyal Lalo and the Invicta staff for the amazing experiences, hospitality, and opportunities they have offered us at Evine.

Invicta Cruise1For the first time ever, Invicta is giving our customers an opportunity to join us on our next remote as we broadcast LIVE from the middle of the ocean on our February Invicta Cruise!  Our customers will have a chance to be a part of our live show and meet Eyal Lalo, Invicta Designers, Ambassadors, and Collectors.  If you can’t make it, join me on my Facebook page for photos of the day from February 10-13th!

Treasures from my Desk

I love my office at home!  While sitting at my desk, there are three different views. To the front, I have a view of a quiet, small, beautiful lake, large trees and my gardens. In the early morning hours there are ducks and geese relaxing on the water, giving me a very serene and peaceful view to start my day.  At dusk, the western facing sunsets are simply magnificent.

To the back of my desk is of a wonderful credenza filled with framed photos of my mom and dad, my nanas and papas, my honey, children and our pets. Then there are the hundreds of books, some enjoyed and some that have been on my ‘to read list’ for years.

The third view, the worst view of my office – is when I open the many drawers below the desk that are full of files, documents and clutter, accumulated for almost 20 years.

I recently decided to go through my files and do some purging and organizing.  I discovered many long-lost love notes from my sweetie, notes that were tucked into the lunchboxes of my children, outdated insurance info, garden blueprints, important company e-mails (why was I saving these?), my first professional reel, and my first contract with Evine 18 years ago. But then I hit the jackpot . . . photos, taken over the past 15 years, of promo and marketing pieces that my network has done. I knew many of you would recognize some of my friends and colleagues and enjoy them just as much as I did when I first pulled them out of my messy files!

Lynne blog 2 Tuscon remoteMy first Tucson remote 12 years ago! I was so nervous to be traveling with such industry professionals as Kendy Kloepfer, Karen Connelly and of course, Chuck Clemency. What if I goofed it all up? Chuck would never, ever let me live it down!

Shooting the annual holiday greeting card was always such a hoot!   We would sometimes have to shoot for hours because we had such hard time being serious when we all got together!

This promotional piece was for one of the first shows I ever did with the CEO of Invicta, Eyal Lalo. There was so much anticipation because this was the first big diamond piece we had ever done on the network. Every executive of the company was in the audience watching and I remember it sold out in minutes.

 

 

 

Lynne blog host pick 1RThe beginning of ‘Host Pick’ at the network . . . and still one of my favorites to this day. It was so much fun to enjoy such elaborate hair, make-up and wardrobe (and of course, Photoshop!) on some fabulous off-site location. I must admit . . . I felt a little like a movie star . . . if just for a day.

Now that my drawers are cleaned out and organized, and I’ve found my little ‘treasures from my desk’, I don’t think I’m going to put them back into the same cramped files. I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with them yet . . .  I think I’ll just let them sit on the top of my desk for a while as I decide.
