Have you heard? Beija-Flor is having its annual Warehouse Sale at the Flagship Store in Downtown Greenville this weekend (June 1-3)! Warehouse sales are different from most other sales and they can often be a little intimidating—particularly if you're a warehouse sale rookie. But whether you're a newcomer or a seasoned veteran, you can easily have a fun and successful shopping experience by following these tips:
Get there early.
There will be a line.
Bring a friend.
It’s always more fun to shop with your peers!
Give yourself plenty of time to shop.
There are several racks and boxes to look through and time flies when you’re having fun, so keep that in mind as you plan your trip to the sale.
Make sure you are well hydrated.
Sometimes you get so caught up walking around shopping that you forget to take a water break. Remember, your health is more important than discount jeans.
Wear a dress/skirt.
There will be communal fitting rooms, but if you don’t want to wait in line or if you’re uncomfortable changing around a bunch of strangers, you can easily/quickly try on a pair of jeans by slipping them on under your skirt.
Wear comfortable shoes that easily slip on/off for changing.
Wear a camisole to try on blouses.
Try on a size up and a size down from your normal size.
These jeans may fit differently than other brands, so we recommend trying different sizes to ensure you find the best fit.
If you like it, buy it.
If you don’t get it now, someone else will, and you’ll miss out on something you love at a great price. Also, don’t rule out an item just because it’s out of season. If you find something you absolutely love but wouldn’t wear it till Fall/Winter, you should still buy it! You won’t be able to buy it for a cheaper price if you wait.

Greenville, SC- Greenville based apparel brand, Beija-Flor Jeans, makes it big by accepting ENK International Intermezzo Apparel Show’s invitation. The show hosts some of the leading global apparel brands-BCBG, Free People, Hudson Jeans, to name a few. “It is quite an honor to be accepted into such an exclusive show,” Kathy Moca says with a smile. Kathy Moca, co-founder and creative director, tells us that in order to attend one of the ENK International shows, you only get three tries.
“This is our second attempt of getting invited. We applied three years ago when our brand just started to kick-off. Getting accepted this time is a big mile stone- it just shows how far we have grown as a company- and that we are here to stay!”
Beija-Flor Jeans’ first Beija-Boutique opened up in 2010 in Plaza Suite Boutique (downtown Greenville). Currently Beija-Flor is found in over 350 boutiques nationwide, and in Canada.
It is quite a success story for the mother-daughter duo that first began selling their jeans six years ago at “ jean parties” in their homes. Now, Beija-Flor Jeans will be setting up booths at international apparel shows right next to other denim brands like J.Brand and Joe’s Jeans.
“It is a bit intimidating (and exciting) to be positioned near big house denim brands like Joe’s Jeans. It will definitely keep our minds in constant reminder of what differentiates Beija-Flor Jeans – that of our fit.” Kathy Moca tells us that she is sure buyers will be impressed with her upcoming Fall 2011 “Curvas” Collection, and Spring 2012 samples. “Buyers will be turning their heads twice when walking by our booth.”
It just shows the power of a small-business taking charge, being innovative, and believing in their product every step of the way.

Now More Insights with Kathy…
What does ENK’s Intermezzo mean to Beija-Flor as a brand?
It means we are here to stay! It is a huge achievement for our brand- the buyers from the crème de la crème only attend these types of shows. Attending Intermezzo marks a big mile stone- it just shows how much we have learned about designing, branding, and coordinating production with delivery. We have managed to successfully develop a CORE to our selection, which seemed to impress ENK!
What makes ENK so exclusive?
ENK has a very selective application process for both vendors and buyers; buyers and vendors can only be invited to attend these shows. ENK makes sure to invite only those who are serious and dedicated to the fashion industry, which in the end guarantees the presence of exclusive brands.
How are you preparing for the show?
We are trying to focus as much attention to this show- seeing how it is our first time; we want to make a great first impression! We have been strategizing booth layouts to perfection. We are really pleased with out final layout, and think the buyers will love our design. Also, we are incorporating both social media and e-mail marketing into our promotion. We want to make sure all of our Beija-Believers know where we are!
What are you most excited for at Intermezzo?
Since it is an international show, we are excited to meet with our Canadian customer for the first time. It also gives us a chance to meet some of our U.S. customers who don’t attend regional shows like Atlanta, Chicago, or Dallas. For example, we are excited to meet one of our first customers, “Creative Elegance,” from Philadelphia whom Beija-Flor has never “met”.
We also can’t wait to show-off our Spring 2012 samples. We have looked really hard to find the best fitting denim in our Brazilian textile factory to make sure our new pieces carry on the great Beija-Flor fit. Our Spring 2012 collection will carry our new work dress, blazer, POD skirt, and white jean!
