As a business we take our inventory planning very seriously because of the additional costs associated with inventory management such as discounting and warehousing. In ideal scenarios, it is best to employ a just in time approach to inventory using analytics to understand seasonality and therefore stock items just before they are requested.


With regards to items to stock, the colder months evoke different emotions and a different color palette, and your supply should be set up to meet this changing demand to increase sales. Summer calls for brightness and colors such as aspen gold and other yellowy hues which are in high demand. These vibrant colors matched with stones such as agate, calcite to harness the heat make the colors boldly stand out and acts as the perfect accessory for the summer.
