Truck sales are booming. Not every company is reporting vibrant sales, but General Motors is an exception. GM trucks are doing incredible business. Those who thought truck buying would wane in the purported era of the hybrid car were wrong. American consumers do love their trucks. Right now, the United States is in the midst of a “truck craze” and General Motors is reaping the rewards.
GM earned $9.7 billion in revenues for 2015. Truck sales were a large part of the revenues, and SUV sales were strong as well. Car sales do not seem anywhere near as huge, but the truck and SUV sales definitely carried the year for the Detroit automaker. Less than a decade ago, there were serious fears General Motors would be in dire financial shape. Rebounding was thought to be very difficult. The ebbs and flows of the market can swing in any direction and, in this case, the swing was towards larger profits. GM delivered models consumers found appealing. Big sales followed.
Analysts like Marc Sparks are also looking at whether or not the massive boom in sales is sustainable. No, this is not a cynical attempt at downplaying the red hot sales. Rather, questions about whether or not sales are going to remain high allow General Motors to be ready and more prepared for a possible drop-off. Sales are sure to fall somewhat after hitting a massive and unexpected peak.

The LimeCrime brand established by Doe Deere has always been one of those pushing the boundaries of the traditional rules of fashion, particularly under the leadership of founder Doe Deere. The founder of the LimeCrime brand has recently been explaining just why she believes the fashion industry needs to loosen its grip on the rules it has been standing behind for a number of years; Deere believes everybody should dress and use cosmetics in a way that makes them feel good about themselves, and are not used simply to fit in to how society believes we should all look.
Doe Deere herself has not taken the easy route to success after completing her own education in fashion in New York City. The fashion expert of Russian ancestry decided she wished to start her own line as soon as she had completed her education, which led to Doe Deere forming the LimeCrime to market her own range of high quality individual designs. LimeCrime shifted its focus after the self described Queen of the Unicorns looked to market her products using cosmetics highlighting her whimsical and thought provoking designs; unable to find bold colors Deere began making her own cosmetics and found their popularity an important factor in developing the cosmetics brand of cruelty free products.
Even as a cosmetics designer Doe Deere rarely sticks to the rules laid down by the fashion industry and instead looks to develop her own ways of marketing the products she assists in the creation of on a daily basis. After attending sessions in the LimeCrime lab each day the founder of the company keeps a tight grip on the marketing of her products; Deere is a well known social media user and blogger, both of which form the basis of her marketing campaigns.
Doe Deere explains her belief that personal happiness and comfort are just as important as the need for a continued use of the rules of the fashion industry. Unlike many fashion experts Doe Deere believes we should all have the opportunity to team the patterns, textures, and colors we feel are perfect for us in our everyday fashion choices regardless of the rules we are taught throughout our lives.
