Public Relations Internship with Emily Sloan Clothing

About Emilie Sloan:
Everyday should be like Saturday . . . breakfast with friends, a trip to the farmers market, time for the gym. That’s the idea behind Emilie Sloan; stylish, durable, practical totes that bring a little Saturday into your everyday.  Emilie Sloan was founded by Lisa Murphy, who began designing and sewing vibrant rainproof totes to cope with the constant Seattle rain.  After her totes received numerous compliments and sold out quickly at a local boutique, Lisa decided to follow her entrepreneurial dream and started Emilie Sloan, named after her two daughters.  The custom-designed cotton fabric goes through an extensive lamination process, resulting in a beautiful soft matte-finish that women of all ages love!

Life . . . more elegant. 

More Specific Info:
Emilie Sloan started in a Seattle sewing room in Sept. 08 and has had tremendous growth since!  

Distribution: ES bags are now sold in over 750 stores in the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and will soon be distributed in the UK and Japan.  Distribution and customer service is handled through a larger company, The Madison Park Group, located in a warehouse on Capitol Hill, near Seattle University.
