March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the power and influence of women, past and present, in society and culture. As Coco Chanel said, “A woman should be two things—who and what she wants.”


Here, we owe a debt of gratitude to the following women who have shaped the world of Levenger in recent years, injecting creativity and innovation into our brand and product assortment. We tip our hats in thanks to these extraordinary women who have contributed greatly to today’s Levenger experience.


Master Your Life with Kristen Race

Our ingenious start-anytime daily planner is the brainchild of Dr. Kristen Race. The bestselling author, founder of Mindful Life™, a two-time TEDx Speaker, and host of the Train Your Brain radio show, neuroscientist and productivity expert Dr. Kristen Race is also a self-described Brain Geek, Entrepreneur, Mom and Mountain Girl. Thanks, Kristen, for showing us how to master our lives.




Hit the Road with Jenna Blum

Jenna Blum, the New York Times best-selling author of Those Who Save Us, The Stormchasers and The Lost Family, has been a fan and customer of Levenger for years. When we met her at a recent event, Jenna was carrying an old Levenger Expandable Briefbag as her constant traveling companion. So, we decided to update and reintroduce the style, and now it’s one of our core best sellers. Thanks, Jenna!




Cook Creatively with Pati Jinich

Pati Jinich is the star of the three-time James Beard Award-winning PBS series Pati’s Mexican Table and author of bestselling cookbooks including Treasures of the Mexican Table. A creative dynamo both in and out of the kitchen, Pati personally supervised the design of all the unique products in her Levenger collection. More about Pati.




Write a Novel with Sue Viders

We have Sue to thank for our the newest Circa notebook that’s become a runaway hit — the Writing a Novel Workbook. Sue is the author of numerous books, workbooks and columns, as well as a card game for writers. She also lectures and teaches writing, both in person and online. More about Sue.




Get Inspired with Sharon Cummings

Sharon Cummings is an artist with an irresistible urge to create. Specializing in abstract art, impressionism and mixed media, Sharon believes that art and beauty are not a luxury but a necessity for all of us. Her Hearts on Fire and Peaceful Journey Circa notebooks have added creative flair to the collection.



‘Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History’

Here are a few more Levenger items that honor legendary women of the past. (Hint: these all make great gifts for the women in your life youd like to salute.)



 The Emily Dickinson Retro 51 pen and notebook duo were created in partnership with the Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst, Massachusetts, inspired by the life and work of the legendary poet (1830–1886).

• Harriet Tubman (1822–1913) was one of America’s most inspiring heroes. Retro 51 created this gorgeous pen to honor her.

 Levenger pays tribute to the eternally fascinating superstar Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962) with an exclusive collection to inspire the dreamer in all of us.

 Montegrappa celebrated the silver-screen debut of Barbie with a pen handmade in Italy, in close consultation with Mattel and Warner Brothers.
