2. Dôen: Super Bloom

Your email campaigns should always be aligned with your brand, and Dôen is a great example. They’ve taken an editorial approach to sharing their spring line with customers, focusing on airy visuals and minimal copy to convey the essence of their collection. Their copy explains what their new collection is about without being too sales-y, and they’ve opted for one cta letting customers shop.

3. Raven + Lily: SPRING 2019 IS HERE

Raven + Lily shares their Spring Wanderlust Collection by including their inspiration (read: mood board) right in the email. This is a great example of focusing on evoking a mood from your customers, instead of having a super product-focused email. Think about it this way - how many ‘new spring arrivals’ emails do you think your customers get in their inbox? Focusing your first Spring email campaign on a different goal (in this case, evoking a a mood) can help set your brand apart.

Bonus tip: Raven + Lily includes their core values in their email footers, from how they're certified B-corp to their products being eco-friendly. Your footer is a great way to remind customers why they're subscribed to your brand, and why they should continue to support you!

4. Organic Basics: Spring Sale 🌱

What better way to welcome Spring than with a sale? Organic Basics uses a GIF to elevate their minimal email, but keeps the copy straight to the point. From a quick glance, customers are able to figure out that they have three days to use the promo code for 20% off. Sometimes, simple emails do best.

5. Everlane: The Rain Boot Reviews Are In

Everlane takes the product-specific route with an email campaign dedicated solely to their new rain boots. What better way to sell a new product than with good reviews and user-generated content? By using a combo of positive quotes and photos of the rain boots worn by customers, Everlane makes it hard not to click through to shop.
