Use our Drop a Hint to send a R50 voucher & a nudge in the right direction for Valentine's Day.

I know, I know. It was only just new year, and now we’re talking about Valentine’s day. But do the maths and you will discover (probably to your shock, which is what happened to us) that it is only three weeks away.

So: we are having a promotion. It is a big promotion, and it is very cool. In fact, you may never have seen a bigger or cooler promotion anywhere, ever.

Instead of sitting around and hoping that your boyfriend / girlfriend / husband / wife / fiancé gets it right and presents you with exactly what you want, help him or her out and send them a clue. And also send them fifty bucks!

There’s a thrilling little button in the left sidebar of every product on Hello Pretty that allows you to do just that:


And the best part: when you drop that hint, whoever you’re dropping it to will get a R50 voucher to use on the site towards getting you that something pretty that you like.

Of course, there are some terms and conditions. Sorry! Always with the conditions:
    1. You can only use one voucher per seller at a time.
    2. The voucher will only work on purchases of more than R50.
    3. All good things must come to an end. This good thing will end on Feb 10th.

And lastly: You have to tell everyone you know about this. We can’t force you to — but come on. This is awesome.

When you get your presents, please send us a picture of you with them. We love getting pictures from happy customers.

It's Alive!

The time has come, the walrus said, to talk about Hello Pretty’s official launch! After months of hard work and sleepless nights, our baby is ready to step out of beta and into the big wide world.

We’ve added gift vouchers to the site, implemented better search, a Sale page, an online seller application form, and tons of other fancy things under the hood. Worth celebrating, right?

So, in true Hello Pretty style, we decided to go big or go home. And what could be bigger than our very own Hello Pretty market? That’s right - we’re having a market, and you’re invited!

We just took care of your Christmas shopping. You’re welcome.

There’ll be 40+ of our designers for you to buy from, plus great food and drink, and some other really fun surprises. Here are the deets:

You should come. Obviously. RSVP on Facebook, and invite your friends: this will give you an entry to win the awesome little Secret Santa bag o’ swag that includes treasures from Duke & Dutch, Savior Brand Co, Maiden Name, Handmade By Me, tjou-tjou and a couple of others, worth R1 100. Details of the prize to be announced next week, so start RSVPing to enter!

Guys, we’re super duper excited about this. We can’t wait to see you there! We’ll be the ones running around hopped up on sugar from the free candyfloss.

See you on the 17th!

P.S.  Keep your eye on us tomorrow. This weekend we’re getting all crazy up in here! We’ll be announcing the winner of The Launchbox, as well as the winner of The Dapper Pack from the What My Boyfriend Wore giveaway.

The Launchbox

Sounds pretty damn cool right? Want to know what’s in it that makes it worth 2 400 sweet South African rands? Sure you do:

What’s the occasion, you ask? We’re glad you did, because it’s kind of a big deal to us. On the 1st December, after a lot of late nights and enough coffee to jumpstart a rocketship, Hello Pretty is officially launching! And since we couldn’t have done it without your help, we have put together a Launchbox o’ swag which could be yours!

To Enter:

Buy anything from Hello Pretty (gift vouchers also count!), before the 2nd of December. You’ll get one entry per item purchased. Anyone who’s ever bought anything on the site in its entire history will also be entered. We’ll be choosing a winner on the 2nd December.

Tell your friends, tell your family, tell that random guy you always have that awkward moment with in the hallway. And when you’re done, don’t forget to make a stop here.
