OUR POP UP STORE IN KITZBÜHEL

Posted on / by GlossyTimes

It has been a very busy season for me. Obviously, otherwise I would have been a bit more active on GT. We decided to open a small Pop-Up Store for the season in Kitzbühel because we thought it would be a great marketing hub. Which it is. Even if you get everything in place, sometimes you can’t control it all. Like the weather. The population of Kitzbühel is highly dependent on snow as you might imagine. The fact that there has been NO snow hasn’t helped bring tourists and house owners to the small town. Which means less people than expected. A weak Rubel keeps the Russians in Russia and not shopping in Kitzbühel. Or they tend to go to Courchevel like my dear Lilia. I asked her to write up a comparison between Kitz and Courchevel, so I can post it on GT. Like dress code and slopes, ski valley parking and stuff, you know.

Those of you following me on Instagram have seen a couple of snapshots of Kitzbühel. Frankly, I don’t take that many pics as I am always quite focused on what is happening in front of me, rather than creating happenings for social media. I wish it would be the other way around as I feel like life is dragging me around instead of me going through life with a leash. PENG!

Anyways, we had a nice Champagne reception with my favourite champagne POL ROGER and are partner of the supercool Bentleys Lodge where we had the chance to explore the not yet released BENTAYGA. My favourite car on earth.  Also we hung out quite a bit at our other partner HOTEL ZUR TENNE, where within 20 minutes Stumpf, Chiara Ohoven and Heino (+entourage) entered the bar. Quite a social spotlight this venue. We celebrated the New Year on a Alm (a very simple house on a mountain, where we ended up paying over 500€ for two) and I practised my sales skills in the Pop-Up shop during peak season. I discovered that I sell particularly well if I LIKE the person. Mostly though I don’t sell, I advise.  It helps that I have a very strong opinion about most things.

I am going to St. Moritz at the end of January and might have more pictures then. Or not. We will see. I am hoping for some decent snow there. Though it will not be a trip for pleasure. More a grilling, as we will meet investors.  More to come!

Stay elegant,

B.

    Ach wie großartig – einfach beigeisternd und inspirierend. Danke, dass Du uns an Deiner Entwicklung teilhaben lässt. Wow, ich bin wirklich ein wenig sprachlos. Ich wünsche Dir für dieses und alle weiteren Vorhaben nur das Beste! Du hast es Dir redlich verdient. Und den Schnee müsstet Ihr ja jetzt endlich auch in Kitzbühel haben 🙂

    Your pop-up store is a very posh place indeed! Personally I don’t think it’s possible to compare any French or Italian ski resort with an Austrian one. It’s about feeling of being welcome I guess. French and especially Italians have it, in Austria I feel like mostly my money is welcome…I had a feeling like most of Russians from London came to the French Riviera. Monaco just finished a Russian culture year, a beautiful Christmas deco, many events and finally sense of security made them coming here. Lack of snow in many ski resorts was obviously a reason too. Happy and successful new year!

      I know many people who went south rather than skiing. I would have done the same in their case. The good news: It has been snowing today! WOHOOO!

        Lucky you! I miss winter so much! We were desperate to find snow this year, planned to fly from London to Norway or Canada, finally returned back to MC with sick sinusitis and stayed at home for the rest of the holidays…

    What a beautiful place! The store looks just as stylish as you do. You can be so proud of your Venture and your skills!
    I will check the store out if we go to Kitzbühel this year. Unfortunately the weather does not look too good for skiing this season.
    I am looking forward to seeing and reading more about your next projects!

      If you come to Kitzbühel, step by: Franz Reisch Strasse 11, next to Stamperl. Tell my shop girl that you are a GT reader and that you get a glass of Champagne!
