Jill Zarin - Too Blessed To Be Stressed
It’s fair to say Jill Zarin, icon, mother, entrepreneur, and original Real Housewife of New York, knows a thing or two about the consumer world we live in today. Since her days as the marketing manager at Zarin Fabrics Warehouse, a family-owned textile empire, Jill has built several successful e-Commerce lifestyle brands under the Jill Zarin Home umbrella.
Having been a style guru to millions, Jill Zarin boasts an enormous fanbase, devoted to following her multifaceted career and her exquisite tastes. Translating the charm and elegance she displays on screen, into a lifestyle brand of today has allowed her to make her Jill Zarin Home a staple among celebrities, influencers and the mass market consumers.
The company motto is: ‘solution based, affordable luxury’ and includes a hand-knotted, premium-quality designer rug collection. After debuting in 2018 with designs that honored Jill’s love of SOHO, Manhattan, and a multitude of uptown and downtown districts throughout New York, the rugs collection is now widely available in heavy weight retailers such as Macy’s, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s, Wayfair, Home Depot and many more.
In partnership with Home Source, Jill Zarin Home has recently launched its first ever furniture line. The entire 18-piece collection features sideboards and credenzas, bar cabinets and bookshelves with spacious compartments to display dinnerware, books, small appliances and alcohol. The collection is inspired by modern tastes, infused with trending neutral colors and sleek clean lines, with pieces that fit comfortably into any home; complementing lounge areas, dining rooms, reading nooks and entertainment spaces.
Jill has also inspired her daughter Ally Shapiro to join in the family entrepreneurial spirit. During the coronavirus pandemic, together they started hand tie-dyeing cloth face masks as a personal outlet; the whimsical and colorful designs quickly gained social media attraction, which led the duo to form the brand “Jill & Ally”, a fun, youthful accessory brand. The importance of giving back was a core pillar within the brand: If a customer bought a mask Jill & Ally donated a mask to health care providers, essential workers and charitable organizations. Almost eighteen months later, Jill & Ally is sold at major retailers, and specialty boutiques, selling not only masks but lounge wear and a line of unique candles embedded with ethically sourced crystals. The candles also feature self-care mantras like “It’s a Good Day to Have a Good Day”, “Too Blessed to Be Stressed”, and “Good Vibes Only” which are sure to bring in good energy within people’s homes.
Jill’s shrewd eye for quality, her intimate knowledge of the retail world and her finger on the pulse of the hottest trends is fast positioning the Jill Zarin Home and Jilly & Ally brands as industry leaders in the home décor and accessory space. The brand’s overall mission to translate the luxury choices into quality merchandise inside everyday homes gets stronger with each sale.
