Happy Monday! I'm thrilled to report this Shopaholic is back to her old self, after a few days of being "down and out" with unexpected dental stuff. The sun is shining again and it's onward and upward we go! 

Welcome to DAY SIXTEEN, the final day of Shopaholic giveaway days to celebrate Mother's Day!

Today I'm thrilled to feature one of my favorite jewelry designers, Caroline Grace Jewelry and her Etsy shop, Lulu Jewels.  I met Caroline Grace months ago when I started blogging, and in addition to admiring her beautiful jewelry, we share a love of all things fashion related. (She is also a Lilly Pulitzer addict, oops I mean Lilly girl!). Caroline's designs are gorgeous, and I have quickly amassed quite the collection. It's to the point where DH recognizes the goodies when they arrive - something like "Oh, I see you bought another cuff bracelet".

Here are a few of my current "loves" from Caroline Grace....

Seahorse Cuff Bracelet, $124

Tropical Fish Cuff Bracelet, $136

Siv Necklace in Sterling Silver with Peruvian Opals, Pearls & Swarovski, $138

Flora Chandelier Earrings, $44 (these come in a ton of colors & will match everything!)

Now for the GIVEAWAY -- and a huge DISCOUNT!!! Caroline Grace Jewelry is sponsoring a Mother's Day giveaway, exclusively for Shopaholic readers! The giveaway item is pictured below. It's an absolutely stunning silver chain, with a personalized 5/8" disc (disc shown is silver with a gold rim, but you can select a beaded gold rim or plain silver one if you'd like!). The necklace also two additional charms, a pearl and a starfish! The retail value of this price is $305!!! Clearly, you can see we saved the highest dollar value giveaway for our "last hurrah"! :-) What a generous giveaway!

Now, the lucky winner will be able to "add" additional discs or charms if they'd like (Caroline grace will be happy to provide pricing). An example of how the necklace may look with more charms or discs is provided below:

Is it just me or is this a wonderful giveaway!?!?!?
 Of course, we all know there can only be one Caroline Grace is offering an extremely generous discount, just for Shopaholic readers! How about 25% off?!?!?! To be honest, I've never seen her offer this large of a discount, even on her Facebook fan page. A discount of this magnitude will probably not happen again anytime soon....."maybe" around the holidays, but there is no guarantee! This is a fantastic time to pick up that piece you've had your eye on, or that special Mother's Day gift! Personally, I look at her site every time I need to purchase a gift for another Shopaholic - I get so many compliments on my pieces! NOTE: The last day to take advantage of this discount is May 2, 2010.

You can take advantage of the discount one of two ways. Number One - purchase the item through Etsy, just don't complete the payment process. Then "convo" (this is Etsy's email system) Caroline Grace, tell her you are a Shopaholic reader and would like to take advantage of the discount. She will send you a Paypal invoice with the adjusted amount with the discount. Number Two - purchase the item through Etsy, pay as you normally would through Paypal, etc. Then "convo" Caroline Grace, tell her you're a Shopaholic reader and would like to take advantage of the discount. She can then send you a refund through Paypal for the 25% discount amount. Either way - it's up to you! Just don't let this opportunity pass you by - I'm being honest, I don't know when or IF we'll see another discount at this amount again!  Now - here is how you can enter the Caroline Grace Jewelry nametag necklace giveaway:
