Last Friday, JP Lizzy had the honor of being featured on The Ellen Degeneres Show! In case you missed it, we’re giving you a little recap of this incredible experience. Wendy Barry, owner of JP Lizzy, and Andrea Fellman, owner of Savvy Sassy Moms, attended the live taping on Thursday (pic below!). The show is filmed at the famed Warner Brothers Studio in Bubank, CA – though we love Colorado, jetting off to the Cali coast is always a treat.
This was no ordinary episode, it was the popular Mother’s Day Show and is one of Ellen’s biggest and most popular shows of the year. The audience is full of first-time pregnant moms and audience members are gifted with tons (we mean, tons!) of Mother’s Day products- strollers, iPads, cribs, and yes, diaper bags. Not surprisingly, tickets are extremely hard to come by- it was rumored that one woman in the audience actually planned her pregnancy around the show (seriously!). Needless to say, being selected to be a part of the show was quite an honor.
To say the audience members were adorable is an understatement. The Warner Brothers studio was packed full of first time expectant mothers who were ALL about to get the Ellen hookup. Can you imagine the energy in the room? Let’s just say there was a lot of dancing and cheering…and thankfully no early labors :).
The Special Guests
To kick-off the show, Ellen’s adorable nieces Eva and Perry graced the stage outfitted in clothing by Zulily (one of our favorite online stores), with Ellen announcing that each audience member would receive an iPad from Zulily. Let the giveaways begin! Special guest and beautiful star Shakira was up next, sharing all of surprises and fears that came with her first pregnancy and birth of her first child, Milan. Following Shakira was the well-known TV personality, author, and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel. Looking flawless, Bethenny spoke to her friend Ellen about raising her daughter Bryn, dealing with a difficult divorce, and her upcoming talk show.
Finally, the moment we and all the audience members had been waiting for…Ellen’s product showcase and giveaway extravaganza. One after one, new products were showcased & gifted to the audience. From a Britax Car Seat, to a Bob Stroller, to a $250 Starbucks Gift Card, the sea of products was amazing. Following a 6-Month Free Supply of Huggies, it was JP Lizzy’s moment to shine. Ellen said it best: “For moms that want a diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag, we have JP Lizzy!” Four of our colorful patent leather diaper bags were on display. As Ellen’s model graced the stage wearing our Sherbert Satchel bag, Ellen announced that yes, each lucky audience member would be receiving one. And once again, the crowd went wild.
