Happy Tuesday, my Fashionistas friends! Hope you're having a great week so far! Our area is in full swing Spring Break mode, things are quite crazy as you can imagine! :-) Welcome to DAY EIGHT of Shopaholic Giveaway Days to celebrate Mother's Day!!!

Today I'm very excited to introduce you to a local boutique here in Gulf Shores, AL. While I know many of my readers live in other wonderful areas of this great land, many of you (especially in the Southeast) vacation here in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, AL. You all need to know about "The Beach House Boutique", owned by my friend Robin Mills-Stapleton. 

The Beach House Boutique
3800 Gulf Shores Pkwy #350
Gulf Shores, Al 36542

The Beach House Boutique is such a fun place, it's my "go to" source for purchasing and trying on my favorite designer, Lilly Pulitzer. It's the only store locally that carries any Lilly. Addtionally, Robin has a wonderful selection of goodies for the home - wine charms, candles, decorative items, etc. When I need a special gift, I visit The Beach House Boutique. Do you guys remember the wine "pendant" I sent to Kristin as part of our Spring Gift Swap? It came from Robin's shop! :-) 

The Beach House Boutique has a new shipment of Lilly, including swimsuits (Gator Alley is one of my favorites!), the new Regan dress (short version in Gator Alley), the Regan maxi dress in solid white and the new Cocoa dress. These dresses are photographed (isn't Robin's model just the cutest thing?) below. Shopaholic confession: I purchased the Regan in Gator Alley while I was in the store for our photo....

Now for the FUN!!! First off, The Beach House Boutique is sponsoring a giveaway of the Lilly Pulitzer large agenda just for Shopaholic readers. One lucky reader will be very, very happy as these are hard to find!  :-)

Second, Robin is offering a 20% DISCOUNT on one Lilly Pulitzer apparel item, exclusively for Shopaholic readers. She has many other Lilly items in stock, and can order most anything, so please feel free to ask her about any other items you might "need". No worries if you don't live or vacation with us on the Alabama Gulf Coast, The Beach House Boutique can ship your purchases via UPS delivery. Shopaholic tip: If you live out of state and your purchase is shipped, it will not be subject to sales tax. This can save a lot of $$$, quick!
