CREED ... it is official!

We are so excited to announce our newest line here at Lavish... CREED! We feel so priveleged that we were selected to carry this exclusive line and that it is now available in south Georgia. And what sets Creed apart from other fragrance lines? many...

1. CREED is one of the world's only dynastic, privately owned luxury lines. Beginning in 1760 and passed on from father to son since then, it is one of the 100 oldest family businesses in the world.

2. Oliver Creed travels around the world selecting rare and pure ingredients. Today, most perfumes are made from synthetic alcohols and are petroleum based, but CREED doesn't use synthetic anything.

3. What do Napolean III, Winston Churchill, Audrey Hepburn and Princess Diana all have in common? They all wore custom scents created by the House of Creed. Since then, CREED's clientele includes Robert Redford, Elton John, JFK Jr, Jacqueline Kennedy, Madonna, Clint Eastwood, Cindy Crawford...

If you haven't already, you must come experience CREED and wear a piece of history!

Friday Night Alfresco!

This Friday night (July 3rd) will be Thomasville's first Friday shop and dine night! Shops will stay open until 8 pm! Hopefully the weather will be tolerable and perfect for a date night!!! My husband and I moved up to Thomasville for this reason...we LOVE being able to stroll the downtown and window shop after dinner! Which reminds me, has anyone seen the bats on the corner of Broad and Jackson...coming out of the Coffee Interiors building? CREEPY! Anyways, feel free to stop by Lavish with your pooches for a little treat, we would enjoy your company!!

Ohh La La!!

I have finally found the perfect summer perfume that I cannot get enough of. Tocca has done it again! Their latest fine fragrance was inspired by the love story of Italian director Frederico Fellini and Guilietta Masina. This new eau de parfum scent carries her namesake and draws from the couple's trips to the island of Corsica where the two dreamt up the director's visionary tales. Dreamy!
Top notes: Bulgarian rose, ylang ylang, green apple, and pink tulips. Middle notes: Lily of the Valley, iris pallida, vanilla orchid, lilac, and Heliotrope. Bottom notes: cedar wood, musk, amber, sandalwood.

Little Girls

So I stole this picture of the little girl from the blog, lalalovely, because I couldn't resist!! My dear friend Brandi is expecting her second boy, but WHEN she has a girl one day, this is how I envision her! Vintage, bold, and adorable!! Reminds me of when Brandi and I had professional pictures of us taken one summer on our bikes in vintage prom dresses! What were we thinking!?!

The Benefit of Clarisonic Cleansers

Pricey? Yes. But experts swear that this gentle, oscillating brush is worth it. "It gives a healthy glow without irritating the skin," according to dermatologist Arielle Kauvar. Here are the facts

2 X more effective than manual cleansing

6 X more makeup removal than manual cleansing

61% greater absorption of vitamin C after use

What I also love is that couples or families can share the brushes. The heads are changable, so everyone in the family can have their own head. Also, you use your own cleanser... all cleansers are compatable. The brush is just making the cleansing a lot more effective, similar to an electric toothbrush. And I, unfortunately, have those ugly red bumps on the back of my arms which I can't wait to try this on. I have tried so many products, but supposedly this works like magic!

Clarisonic Skin Care Brush, $195

Interchangable brush heads (typically last 4-6 months), $25

Sensitive, Delicate, Normal, and Spot Therapy

Look for these at Lavish within the next 2 weeks!

Eberjey Lingerie...

I have been looking for a lingerie/nightie line that is flirty, flattering, but most importantly, comfy...and I have selected Eberjey! Eberjey was founded by two girls in 1996 who were on a mission to create cute lingerie that is comfortable to sleep and lounge around in.. Their signature panties, the "French Briefs" (which we will carry in all sorts of great colors), evolved in the dark days when underwear meant "bikini" or "thong". Eberjey pays careful attention to fabric quality, fit, and color. Here is a quick glimpse of what is headed to Lavish!! (even though these are shown on models, eberjey has just enough little spandex to look flattering on all shapes and sizes!)
