ShopNBC’s Judy Crowell Celebrates A Birthday, And Debuts Spring Collection On The Network

April 1, 2010

It’s April Fool’s Day, and also home-shopping veteran Judy Crowell’s birthday. Later tonight going into Friday, Crowell launches her spring collection on ShopNBC. In fact, her water-resistant pea coat — or swing coat, as ShopNBC describes it — will be Friday’s Top Value.

“I launch early the night of my birthday into the next day — a big celebration all the way around,” she said.

Crowell was speaking to us as she and her husband and fellow ShopNBC vendor, Paul Deasy, were driving from Arizona to Nevada Monday. She and Deasy visited, and shot videos, at five mines, including the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Globe, Ariz. That footage will air when Deasy does his Gem Insider shows in late April.

Crowell and Deasy have worked at all three of the major home shopping outlets – QVC, HSN and ShopNBC. Last year Crowell debuted a line of accessories, mainly handbags, on ShopNBC, while Deasy has been doing a jewelry collection.

Crowell’s spring collection is mainly rain coats, spring outerwear and jackets. She said she was looking to bring clothes with classic lines, but also a twist to stand out in the crowd, to ShopNBC shoppers. Several of her coats have unusual collars af ruffles.

“There’s a lot of interest in the collar treatments,” Crowell said, noting that special collars bring the focus to one’s face.
