I’ll Be Beautiful

It’s not the coolest sounding of names, but “Albee” is pretty popular in the Avon world.  You see, she (that is Mrs. Albee) was the very first “Avon Lady”.

Armed with her iconic parasol, Mrs. Albee would walk door to door selling perfume and recruiting new Representatives.  Her influence was so great, that since 1969, Avon has awarded “Mrs. Albee” statues to top sales reps.

Her legacy is what continues to drive each of us within the Avon family.  So when it came time to create a title for my Avon blog, it seemed only fitting to pay homage to this matriarch of direct sales.  The name “Albee Beautiful”, if you say it just right almost sounds like “I’ll Be Beautiful”, at least to my ear.   I thought that pretty appropriate for a blog seeking to help each of us find our own “beautiful”.
