Well, it has been way too long without an update..we have had major PC problems, some politically incorrect problems, car problems and weather problems but all have been resolved. We've been beavering away here behind the scenes at LadyUmbrella getting our ladies t-shirts lined up and ready. And now, we are happy to announce they are ready and we are due to launch in a matter of days. Really, just days...it has taken so long to get our ladies t-shirts the way we wanted them but the feedback we are getting on them has been flattering, flabbergasting and just positive really which for us justifies the effort and time to get them just spot on. We are days away from launching now so its last chance saloon for a 10% discount if you're the money saving type - just go to theLadyUmbrella t-shirts Facebook Fanpage become a fan and leave a comment letting us know which design is the favourite and we'll do the rest..once again only a matter of days until we launch, excited?
