Michelle Obama LOVES OLEANA!

I got a morning message from OLEANA:
Michelle Obama chose Oleana!
As the US president Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel’s Piece Prize this year, Norway had the honour of hosting Mr. and Mrs. Obama last week in Oslo.

One of our customers, Heimen Husflid, who is located quite close to Grand Hotel where they were staying, had taken the initiative to give the couple some presents from Norway.

We can now proudly break the news that Michelle Obama went back to the USA with four Oleana sweaters in her suitcase! She got so enthusiastic about her present that she bought three more, all from the Oleana-collection. We take it as a big compliment to our line and it is great fun.

Michelle Obama gets many positive remarks on how she dresses and now you can tell your customers who is buying Oleana that they have as good a taste as she has!!

With these good news we would like to wish you a happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!
