monthly update... 4 months

This past month has been lots of fun!
Josh and Charlotte are smiling at each other and starting to play together.  Josh has inherited a hand-me-down bear suit that he loves to wear!  He's my little chit-chatter and is still quite a little snuggler :)

 We made our trip to Grayton for the Seaside Half Marathon at the beginning of the month.  I had been looking forward to this "first vacation" that we booked before Josh and Charlotte were born.  We stayed in the Grayton State Park cabins next to the Campbell's and the weekend was wonderful!!
 Yay for another half marathon!

 I have to end with this picture of Sissy Bear and one of her favorite things... bathtime!!

At four months...
Charlotte is sleeping 12 hours straight in her nursery
Josh wakes up a few times in the night and sleeps next to our bed
Charlotte loves bath time, "singing",  Charles' old wooden rattle with the bell inside it, her bunny, giggling, and being outside.
Josh enjoys talking to Dude, playing with his new Toucan, eating, napping with me on the couch, and talking (just like his Dad!!)

A Quick Vacation

At almost three months, Josh and Charlotte went on their very first mini vacation to one of our favorite places... Destin and 30a!
It was a little different with feeding pit stops every three hours, but we made it work.  Fortunately, Joshua has a built in clock that reminds us when it's time :)
We stayed with Laura and Horace on the bay.
Their cute little personalities are coming out!
And they are starting to interact together, even tough they look a little bored here!
As far as Lavish news (in the baby department) we have a ton of new Kissy Kissy outfits (similar to those Josh and Charlotte are wearing above) and Feather Baby coming in this week.  Can't wait to model a few of those for you later this week!

Josh and Charlotte, 10 Weeks Old

The weeks are really starting to fly by and Josh and Charlotte are already two months old!!  Just in the past week they have started to purposefully smile and Josh coo's, especially when he is in his crib with all his toys!  Charlotte has become a good little sleeper, and Josh, a diligent little eater!
My goodness, their sweetness is too much to handle.

Run for Mercy and Around the Store!

I'm back in action!!  Did you miss me?

First of all, Lavish will be a sponsor this Saturday for Run for Mercy 5k at Southwood in Tallahassee.  The race proceeds will be going towards Mercy Ministries, who provides biblically based counseling, life-skills training, nutrition education, and fitness instruction for women who are facing difficult life circumstances.  This race is specifically fundraising for a new location in Santa Rosa Beach.
Come run the beautiful course in Southwood and afterwards...
you can create a custom bath soak at our Lavish booth!

Here are a few pictures from around the store...

Lots going on!

Hello loyal blog followers!  Since I haven't updated this blog recently, I have a lot to share.  
  • First of all, we have a new neighbor moving in next door to Lavish.  I've been wanting a retail neighbor for the past four years, and it happens to be friends of mine, which makes it even better!  Jill Carraway and her daughter, Evan Wortman, have a fashion jewelry store called Mimi's with fun jewelry at amazing prices and they plan to be open on Friday, November 2nd.  We are collaborating on exciting events between both stores, including a Men's night, so I will keep you posted on that!
  • As far as a TalleyHo Trunk Show, we are not able to have one before Christmas.  If you are planning to purchase TalleyHo monogrammed bags as Christmas gifts, I have to have orders in by November 1st. Their jewelry rounds and cosmetic bags are classic, quality, and popular for all ages.
  • In case you haven't heard, Downtown Thomasville's retail shops are having a Saturday Trick-or-treat from 3-5pm.  Swing by Lavish for the good candy!

Next up are some pictures around the store...

We have a ton of new products including this new (but around for a long time!) line of Italian shaving products for men.  Trying not to neglect the men, because it seems like women are getting all of the attention these days!

Lavish Sidewalk Sale

This Saturday.  Be there!

Monogram It!

Look how BRIGHT and BOLD!  I love how these turned out...

  Just FYI, all of the bags can have a vinyl outer layer, I just don't have any examples in the store.  Also, Talleyho gets extremely busy during Christmas and all Christmas orders have to be placed by November 2nd to ensure that they will be here in time to be wrapped and tucked under the Christmas tree.  Hard to believe that it is right around the corner!  I am hoping to have a Talleyho trunk show sometime this Fall... I will keep you posted on that!

It's Garnet & Gold Time!

I am proud to be a Florida State Seminole and in our house, there has been a countdown until kickoff this Saturday.  Brent's FSU football enthusiasm certainly exceeds mine, but I always remind him that I...
(1) Am a 3rd Generation Seminole (on my Dad's side)
(2) Am a purebred, meaning both of my parents graduated from FSU
and (3) I went there from start to finish (Brent transferred from Louisvile)
(After proofing, Brent wanted me to add that he did play football at FSU under Coach Bowden, which is the main reason for his enthusiasm!)
In the picture above (December 2007), I was about to graduate with a degree in Exercise Science  and Brent with a degree in Social Science.  We didn't know it yet, but within a year we would be married and operating our own businesses!
Since my wardrobe is pretty much just bright colors, I've been looking for Game Day garnet and gold and Jack Rogers makes Seminole sandals...
And Lavish just got these bracelets in...
Football season also means cooler days and lots of shoppers in Downtown Thomasville.
Or, if you need a pre-game tailgate, you can find us under the pines, here .

A Great Gift Idea + Bracelets for you!

So here is  little update on things!
1.  Big News - I have an accessible sidewalk.  Finally!
2.  Market Atlanta was a success and the packages are rolling in.  We are restocked in Lollia and my new favorite gift suggestions is this beautifully boxed set of 12 bath salt sachets for $28.
3.  We've also just gotten in Lily and Laura stretch bracelets that are especially cute in a set of two or three:
 4.  Our End of Summer Grand Finale Sale is still going on and there are still plenty of great sale items!  Rikshaw dresses, Sun-Sandals, jewelry, and select Tocca have been a hit, but there is still plenty to choose from! 
5.  We are headed to NYC this weekend for the New York International Gift Show. (Christmas shopping!) Can't wait to share with you what all we find!

A Sneak Peek From Market!

As most of you know, it is Market season and we are buying for Fall and Christmas season right now.  We just got back from the Atlanta Gift Show and will be going to New York City for their gift show in August.  Here is a glimpse of what you will be seeing in Lavish this Fall...
More Dana Gibson hand painted wastebaskets, tissue box covers and pillows.  Of course I could not resist the blue and white!
Fouta guest/kitchen towels with a bit of shimmer!  I suggest pairing these with some beautifully wrapped Christmas soaps that we also ordered and voila... perfect gift!
Fowl Collection stationary and coasters.
Fair trade felted scarves
I have always stopped and felt these herringbone throws by Brahm's Mount in Maine so we finally decided to put together an order!  They are the perfect weight and machine washable.
We also added some of their blankets to our order.
The John Robshaw and Matouk showrooms are so inspiring and fun to go to.  I put together our next display bed for the store and couldn't resist the Marisol shams!
Some John Robshaw decorative pillows to add to the bed.  I actually have this hand painted elephant pillow in the center of my couch at home.  I'll share pictures in my next post!
Trying to get into the Christmas spirit is a little difficult at this time of the year!
So I took a picture of this Juliska tablescape (bad image, sorry!) to get me brainstorming.  
In order to make room for all of these goodies, we are planning an end of summer SALE!!  It is going to be a good one, so I will keep you posted with more details on that.
