I'm Alive, If You Wondered!

Good Afternoon, Shopaholics!

For days I haven't been able to get into my blogger account. One of my dear friends and fellow bloggers messaged me earlier to say my blog was "gone" - she couldn't pull it up. Then I tried and couldn't pull it up either. Needless to say, I was freaking out a little bit that all my hard work here might be *poof* gone.

Thank goodness it is ok, after a little bit of investigation and changes. Whew. Breathing again now.

I'll update again tomorrow and let everyone know what I've been doing! Hope you're having a great start to the week!

Calypso St. Barth for Target: Shopaholic Must-Haves

Happy Thursday, Shopaholics!

Many of you will remember that I mentioned the Target-Calypso St. Barth designer collaboration on this blog back on March 23 (post was HERE). Needless to say, I've been looking forward to the collection's arrival in stores for quite some time!

The past few days have been a little nuts around here, and just yesterday I finally had a chance to hit Target and try on some of my favorite pieces! In no particular order, below are a few of my "must have" pieces.

Embroidered Ruffle Dress in Navy, $39.99

Fan Print Dress in Turquoise, $36.99
Linen Espadrille Wedges in Tan, $29.99




Double Train Case in Turquoise Start Print, $29.99

Circle Chandelier Earrings in Gold (also available in Silver), $14.99

Linen Wrap Dress in White (also comes in Chelsea Gray, that's what I am ordering online), $42.99

Tie Die Braided Neck Tank in Turquoise, $19.99

Sequin and Straw Tote, $24.99

Suffice to say, I am *in love* with pretty much the entire collection. Are you surprised? :-)

Shopaholic confession: I managed to exercise major restraint and only purchased one piece (the chandelier earrings above) while in the store yesterday. I plan to order everything online, as Ebates is offering 3% Cash Back on all Target.com purchases. If you're not a member of Ebates yet, you might want to get on the ball! It's free and so easy to use. You just link from Ebates every time you want to make an online purchase at your favorite store(s). You can join with my link HERE.

What are your favorite pieces from the Calypso St. Barth for Target designer collaboration? Have a great day!

Wish List Wednesday: Lana Top by Lilly Pulitzer

Happy Hump Day, Shopaholics! 


I am currently *obsessed* with the Lana Top by Lilly Pulitzer. I "need" one in every color! They match all the Lilly skirts, capris and shorts already in my closet. 


It started when I purchased the Lana in Green Bean from one of my favorite Lilly Via Shops, Under The Palm Tree (website HERE)


Lana is now on her way in Hotty Pink. I love this color!  
And not to be left out....also in Shorely Blue. At a price point of just $54, these are perfect spring and summer wardrobe basics. 


Now the hunt is on for White, Lilly's Pink, Lagoon Green and Starfruit Yellow. If you are also "Looking For Lana" - don't delay. If you see your desired color/size combo, you'd be wise to pick it up immediately. They are selling out everywhere! I believe it's official. The secret it out! :-) 


Have a Wonderful Wednesday! 


XOXO, Lori 


p.s. Don't forget to enter the giveaway I posted on Friday from Kevin Dobbins Pearls. It's absolutely fantastic, you do NOT want to miss it! (see original post HERE)

Shop For A Cause from The Pink Pelican

Happy Monday! Hope you enjoyed the weekend - ours was so busy I didn't have time to put up a blog post. We went to the beach, out to eat Saturday night and then helped the in-laws move on Sunday. It was fun! :-)

Today I wanted to make an appeal to you. If you haven't finished Mother's Day shopping, and plan to buy Lilly Pulitzer this week, here is your opportunity to "make it count".

We all know that central and north Alabama was devastated by tornadoes last week. It will take months, even years, for the area to fully recover. The Pink Pelican, a favorite Lilly Pulitzer Via shop, is located in Huntsville right in the middle of all the devastation.

I ask that if you are buying Lilly this week - you consider purchasing from The Pink Pelican. Other than internet orders, they've had NO business since last Wednesday. They will be almost 100% reliant on internet orders to stay busy while the area recovers. Angela wants to be able to provide as many hours as possible to her employees.

And if you want a "reason" to shop - The Pink Pelican is hosting "Shop For a Cause" to benefit the United Way. Angela and her husband have been involved with the United Way for many years, and know firsthand the good work that comes out of the organization. Here are the details:


In case the image isn't large enough on your computer, the text version:

Direct donations: (the Pink Pelican will donate to United Way)

** 10% of all sales will be a direct donation (includes all internet orders received since Wednesday of last week)
** 40% of all McKim Shoe sales will be donated (wedges, flats, spaghetti, stud)


Benefits for our customers:

** Free shipping for all orders over $100
** Double Reward Points
** Gifts with purchases:
** Any amount = Surprise Gift
** $250 purchases = Free Derby Hat or Daisy Earrings
** $500 purchases = Free Derby blanket or Summer Tote

Let's do what we are going to do anyway - shop for Lilly - and make it count! What a wonderful opportunity to help those in such great need. The link to their website is HERE.

Have a Marvelous Monday!

p.s. Tervis Tumblers are on Joss & Main today - almost 50% off retail! Your invite is HERE if you're not already a member!
