As we slowly but surely are anxiously awaiting our live premiere on QVC, we can’t help but look back at some of our favorite home shopping ladies. Check out our biggest inspirations below:
Joy Mangano, Inventor of Miracle Mop – I mean, could this list even exist without Joy? She basically invented the game of home shopping, premiering her product the Miracle Mop in 1990 on QVC. She has since created many lifesaving home products and owns her own company, called Ingenious Designs. By 2000, she had sold over $10 million worth of mops that year alone.
Lori Griener, Clever & Unique Creations – Most of know Lori from being one heck of a Shark on ABC’s the Shark Tank, but what you may not know is that she came up through HSN and QVC. She’s famous to bringing to life many noteworthy products, including jewelry organizers and eventually starred on her own show Clever & Unique Creations on QVC where she has aired many products from other entrepreneurs including the now famous Scrub Daddy.
Jamie Kern Lima, Co-Founder & CEO of IT Cosmetics – Initially a small brand sold in several boutique cosmetic stores, Jamie Kern Lima made a name for herself by famously breaking records on QVC with her cult-following cosmetic brand, IT Cosmetics. Today, the company has reported annual earnings of over $100 million and sold across major retailers, such as Ulta and Sephora worldwide.
Joan Rivers, Joan Rivers Classic Collection – The late star may be known more for her comedic relief on the Red Carpet, but she also made a huge empire for herself through selling jewelry and women’s clothing on QVC.
Suzy Batiz, Founder of Poo-Pourri – Although not originally made through home shopping, Suzy is a rag to riches story who’s product recently aired on QVC. Currently honing in a $300 million business, we are not only huge fans of the product itself, but the woman behind it!
Sara Blakely, Founder & CEO of Spanx – Made popular through Oprah’s Favorite Things in the early 2000s, Sara has appeared many times on QVC to share her popular undergarments. With numerous bestsellers and interesting finds, it’s no wonder the network was the perfect place for Spanx to find it’s fit.
