Shopgirls Picks of the Week

Sorry we're late to post this week's picks. We're so excited about our giveaway that we forgot to take pictures until today. So, here they are ...

Allegra's Pick
I'm just swooning over this fabulous Squirrel and Nut necklace from Classic Hardware! I love that the artist has taken two classic images like a squirrel and acorn and drawn them in a retro tattoo style. It's the perfect combination of classy and funky. Not to mention it would look great on! Wear it with jeans or with a sassy little dress, and you're sure to get a ton of compliments!

Cheryl's Pick
This item just arrived this morning, and I immediately fell in love.The latest creation from Sugarboo Designs, these I Love You blocks are the perfect gift (under $50, too!). Rustic enough to be masculine, but sweet enough to been feminine, this art piece strikes the perfect balance. The vintage feel of these blocks (encased in wood from an old crate) would be perfect in any room in your house. (And yes, the blocks are removable.)

What do ya'll think of our picks this week? Which one do you like?

Emilie Sloan & Giveaway

Recognize these bags??? That's right, they're the Emilie Sloan bags we carry here in the shop. And guess where this picture was taken! At the American Music Awards Lounge. She had the opportunity to give her bags away to some famous people, like ...
LaToya Jackson
Candace Cameron
And a bunch of other people we're ashamed to admit we're too old to know. But I'm sure they're really famous and popular.

Anyway, isn't it cool to know that you could own the same bag a celebrity owns?? Now you can. We're excited to announce that we will be giving away an Emilie Sloan Payton wristlet! All you have to do is visit the Emilie Sloan site and then post a comment on our blog telling us which style bag and which fabric design you like best. Entries must be received by Thursday, December 24th at noon, and the winner will be announced shortly afterward.

Happy shopping and weekend!

Shopgirls Picks of the Week

We're starting a new weekly feature here on our blog, called "The Shopgirls' Picks of the Week." Each of us will choose an item in the shop to feature, and we'll post about them on Monday.

So without further ado, here are the picks for this week:

Cheryl's Pick: Bird Lantern
Isn't this lantern adorable? I'm coveting it. The birds create a bit of whimsy, while the rust color works well with other metals that may be found in your home. It would go perfectly with cottage decor! At just under $50, this would make a great gift ... if you can resist it for yourself.

Allegra's Pick: Men's Gifts
Let's face it ... men are really hard to shop for. So to make it a little easier for you, we put together a "men's table," and the whole table is my pick of the week. Items on this table start at around $10, so there is something for every price point. From desk accessories to shaving products, you're sure to find something for all the men in your life.

Hope you enjoyed our first installment of the "Shopgirls Picks of the Week." Look for it every Monday!

Private Shopping Event at Joli

We had our very first private shopping event at Joli Monday night, and it was a huge hit! About 20-25 ladies came in from a local philanthropic organization and enjoyed our shop during non-business hours. We set up the above spread, and the guests received a percentage off their purchases.

Do you have a group who would like to shop here during a private shopping party? Give us a call or send us an email. We'll set up some goodies for you and offer a discount to your entire group.
