The Stars in the Sky Christmas Tree is the reason I founded this company. That might sound crazy (and it probably is), but let me explain….
I said to the people in the showroom “I have to have that tree.” They said “Well Ma’am, that’s fine, but you need to buy a container of them.” Now keep in mind, this is an OCEAN container. One of those huge containers that has to come all the way to the US from a foreign land on a huge barge. That’s a lot of trees!!! So what did I say? I said “I’ll take a container!” The showroom representative said “Okay, do you have a company?” I replied “No, but I will! I’ll make a company! And I’m going to sell that container of trees!” In the meantime, I said to my friend “Put this on your store – I’m going to buy a container of trees!” As you might have guessed, her response was, “You’re going to do what?!” But she did, and I will be forever grateful.
Then, I called Katie who was back home and I told her I bought a container of trees. She said something along the lines of, “You did what?! We don’t even have a website!” And we didn’t – we had no website, no e-commerce capabilities, nothing. We had just been doing our own thing on Facebook for about a year trying to keep everyone entertained until I figured out what my next journey was going to be. And now, because of a beautiful Christmas tree, that new journey became LisaRobertson.com.
In 2016, when we offered the trees for the first time, I didn’t know what to expect. I was still a little shocked that I actually bought an ocean container of trees. We crossed our fingers, and hoped you would fall in love with the trees like I did. Luckily, you did, and so many of you have your own Stars in the Sky Christmas Trees!
Then, in 2017, the manufacturer added multi color as an option, so we were able to bring you the same beautiful tree in more choices. I was never a multi-color light person, until I saw this tree in multi. It is just beautiful!
Then in 2018, for the first time, we were able to offer all 3 sizes in green or flocked, in white or multi lights. They sold out in a heartbeat when we offered them for pre-order and we were practically in tears! I was just so happy and thrilled that you love the trees as much as I do.
Now here we are in 2019 (time flies!). I know I say it every year, but once again, it is nothing short of a Christmas miracle that we were able to bring these trees back for you this year. We really did move heaven and earth to be able to bring you the Stars in the Sky Tree that we all know and love. This year, it is available in 6.5′, 7.5′, and 9′ in white lights or multicolor lights, and in your choice of a green or flocked tree. I am just never sure what the next year will bring and if we will be able to get it for you again, so if your heart is set on it, I wouldn’t wait.
I know hearing me talk like this about a Christmas tree sounds a little crazy, but it is truly how I felt when I first laid eyes on it, and I still feel the same sense of awe when I see the trees now! It is the most striking, magical, dreamy, amazingly beautiful tree I have ever seen, and I have traveled the world looking for beautiful trees. Nothing has even come close. It looks beautiful even without any ornaments. I have one in my bedroom, one in my living room, one in my dining room, and one in my family room.
I know you’ll love it as much as I do!
PS: The Stars in the Sky Christmas Tree will be available for pre-order on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at Noon ET. You can see all the details of the tree with white lights here, and the details of the tree with multi lights here.
