In the middle of 2021 there are still people who think that giving an appliance on Mother's Day is a good idea, if you don't ask any mom (they have horror stories). A store called Lady Lee in Honduras, realized this and decided to do something about it.

In a post on Facebook , the Lady Lee store promoted its My Mommy Deserves the Best campaign, displaying the "offer" of an iron.

The normal price of the item is 19.5 thousand Honduran lempiras (about 16 thousand Mexican pesos), with the "offer" it rises to 24,999 thousand Honduran lempiras (just over 20 thousand Mexican pesos) accompanied by the message: " We raise the price so that do not give it to your mother in her day ”.

Plus, it encourages shoppers to choose something else from your store. "Better choose from thousands of other options in our store that make her happier."

Lady Lee even amplified the campaign with a tiktok about it: " No to clothes irons, yes to hair irons for mom!"


Do not lose the elegance, Lady Lee has for you all the curling irons and hair straighteners at special prices. #LaFina #Diva #Foryou #parati #fyp
