Calendar Calendar: Bring Out the Pink on Pink Day This June Published 8 years ago on April 27, 2016 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet JUNE 23 It’s PINK DAY and a fun opportunity for a children’s event. Send pink invitations to your favorite young female clients, ask them to wear pink dresses, serve pink food, and, oh yeah, lower the price on all your pink eyeglass frames by 25 percent Have a photographer on hand to capture all the photogenic fun. (You can also easily do a version of this event for older customers.) JUNE 6 Today is YOYO DAY and marks the birthday of America’s yoyo king, Donald Duncan Sr., the founder of the Duncan yo-yo monopoly. Hold a mini yoyo Olympics in front of your business today? (Not inside your business, for obvious reasons.) Do you still have the ability to “walk the dog” or “rock the cradle” yourself? Show the kids what you can do.

If you sell prescription goggles or masks, today’s a good day to promote those. JUNE 19 It’s FATHER’S DAY Instead of golf balls, a belt or a tie, why not offer a special “experience” package to clients looking to spend the day with their fathers? The package could include lunch at a local restaurant, followed by an “eyewear makeover” with your staff. Or an eyewear makeover plus round of golf/baseball game/boat trip. What dad wouldn’t love that? JUNE 21 Advertisement Ah, young SUMMER. For most of the country, the hot season brings a certain respectability to the concept of idling the afternoon hours away in a hammock. For the ambitious eyecare professional, however, it’s just another season to grow your business. Trunk shows, back-to-school checkups and eyeglass sales — there’s much that can be done. (Although if you want to do it well, make sure you do grab some time to recharge.) JUNE 23 Today is LET IT GO DAY. Whatever’s bugging you … that yappy dog next door, the person who pinched your parking spot … roll the idea up in your fist and then releeeeease it. JUNE 25 Advertisement When CBS transmitted THE FIRST COLOR BROADCASTover the air 60 years ago today you needed cutting-edge technical expertise, a huge capital budget and vision. Now, you actually need little more than a smartphone and vision, thanks to YouTube. If you haven’t tried any marketing via video, start experimenting today. JUNE 27 WIMBLEDONis more than green grass, strawberries and Novak Djokavic sweeping away all competitors who come before him. The world’s premier tennis tournament, which kicks off today, is also prime time for watching an audience of international jet-setters wearing wildly expensive sunglasses. Do your own version of Oscar red-carpet watching on your social media feed by offering a “frame pick of the day” from celebrities spotted in the crowd. (By the way, today is also SUNGLASSES DAY.) BUSINESS ANNIVERSARIES HAPPY 25th ANNIVERSARY TO VISION TRENDS Dover, OH Now in its 25th year of business (and its second year in a brand-new location), Dr. Scott Keating’s Vision Trends likes to challenge their clients to try different looks. Says Keating: “Don’t be afraid to show a customer a completely different shape or style or color. Get them out of their comfort zone and show them how the frame enhances their personality. Once they trust you and wear the new style and get compliments in public, you have them as a client for life.” Does your business have an upcoming milestone?

Shutterstock.com CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS: MARILYN MONROE TURNS 90 JUNE 1 One of Hollywood’s classic stars, who would have turned 90 today, had one of her iconic roles in the movie How to Marry a Millionaire. Playing the man-crazy and badly nearsighted Pola Debevoise, Monroe refused to wear glasses and experienced all sorts of vision-related mishaps, while making famous the phrase “Men aren’t attentive to girls who wear glasses.” Despite having been dead for more than 50 years, the actress remains an object of fascination with several Monroe-branded sunglass lines still in existence today.
