2/28/18. It was a sad day.

February 28, 2018 is the day that the Doncaster doors closed for the last time. That, also, was the day I learned that my Doncaster career was over. It was a complete surprise….I really didn’t see it coming. Luckily, I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason! I know in my heart that something else will cross my path….sometime.

In the Fall of 2001, I was invited to lunch…and I accepted. I knew nothing! I didn’t know who else was going….and I didn’t even know who was hosting the event….but I said YES! I met some wonderful women that day and they introduced me to an opportunity that would change my life forever. I have some beautiful clothes that I love…..and cherish the men & women that I have met over the years….from all over the country…clients and consultants!

I have learned that you don’t have to be PERFECT to be amazing! I have seen up close and personal that nobody likes what size she wears, whatever size she wears! And I have learned that Coco Chanel was right….A woman has to be 2 things….Classy & Fabulous!

Doncaster was established in 1931. The Tanner family offered a terrific business opportunity to women who didn’t have much independence available to them. The Doncaster Collection from the beginning empowered a woman to be the best version of herself that she could be. She could stay home and take care of everything…and have her own business! A Doncaster Woman is a Fabulous Woman!! Because she does it all!

Time will tell what I do next. I guess we will just have to wait and see! But, in the meantime, I plan to Get Up. Dress Up. & Show Up…..and keep my eyes open for the next great thing!

Stay Tuned!

  1. What a fabulous tribute, almost as fabulous as you. It has been my pleasure and honor to have worked with you and I hope you know how much I appreciate all you did for Doncaster. I wish you only the best in your next chapter and hope whatever it is brings joy.

  3. Oh Ellyn, those are my sentiments exactly. My time at Doncaster has been a great gift! Thank YOU for your efforts also! Remember how much FUN we used to have at the National Meetings….stand up and SHOUT!! To stretch during your presentations!! It was so much fun!
    I hope that we can stay in touch….I wonder what will come next….for both of us! 🙂
