Save the Date: May 1st is Woman-Owned Business Day {#BuyFromWomen}

Now that April is here, it's time to remember that May 1st is Woman-Owned Business Day. It's a day where we all come together and shop small, supporting women business owners and buy from women! Many businesses offer special sales and coupon codes for this as a shopping day, and there's a large directory of woman-owned businesses compiled by the founder of the day, Urban Girl.

The first woman-owned business day was last year - May 1, 2014. It was a huge success, thanks to the power of social media and networking with women supporting women. It's amazing what we can accomplish when we work together and empower one another. 



Learn more about the day and the movement to #buyfromwomen at the founder's website. There's also a facebook community page, where you can learn more about how you can get involved.



Are you a woman business owner? You can use the hashtag #buyfromwomen to be found by supporters around the world!

I know we will be having a special sale at our shop justByou. Last year, I was also a supporter of the movement and did some shopping on May 1st. I bought a pretty birthstone stacking ring (shared it on instagram).

Stay tuned, because I'll be sharing some of my favorite woman-owned businesses with you very soon! In the meantime...

Do you have a favorite woman-owned business you'd like to share? Share it with me in a blog comment!
