Shopping: Dandelion Summer Sale

Louisville pals – mark your calendar for this Saturday because it’s Dandelion’s Annual Summer Sale. It’s no secret that this St. Matthews boutique is my go-to for all gift-giving. Weddings, check. Bridal Showers, check check. Birthdays, check. Mother’s/Father’s/All Day’s, check. Even Baby Showers.

Seriously, their owner Andi does an amazing job stocking the store with a mix of goodies to fit nearly anyone. When I’m not buying a last minute gift (and even when I am), I usually stop in to check out the amazing jewelry section (love her selection of Loren Hope) or pick up a new candle (because my house could always use a little pick me up).

Come Saturday a huge chunk of the store will be seriously marked down to make room for fall merchandise. Last year, I bought a couple necklaces (one that was marked down from $210 to $30), some home decor fnds (think vases, baskets, etc) and some gifts to keep on hand for random occasions. I’m pretty stoked for this year’s sale because I’ve had my eye on a few things and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’re on sale.

I know that they selection will be great though. I stopped in a week or so ago and the gals there let me know that Andi’s had some stuff saved up and marked WAY down. They also sent over some pics of what you can expect to find on sale. I’ll be heading up there early – hope to see you there!

Shopping + Louisville: St. Matthews Shop the Block Sidewalk Sale

There are sales and then there is the St. Matthews Shop the BlockSidewalk Sale. We’re not talking skimpy mark downs, we’re talking seriously on sale, big time deals. Last year, I snagged a Shoshanna dress for less than $100. I may or may not have already snuck into Blink and scored a couple Joie sweaters marked WAY WAY down (this one was $60!).

The sale starts tomorrow (June 24th) and runs through the 28th. Blink, Clodhoppers, Colonial Designs, Summer Eliason and more of the shops along Lexington Road will be offering big deals (up to 80% off) on their spring/summer merchandise.

Stop by sometime this week and check it out. It’s especially worthwhile if you’ve got a summer wedding or other event that requires a fun dress. And if you go, let ‘em know you heard about it from Lou What Wear!

Shopping: Bella Bliss Warehouse Sale

I had the best job in college. I babysat two adorable little kiddos in the afternoons and in the mornings I worked for their mom at Bella Bliss Clothing. Since then (and I don’t want to admit how long it’s been), those kiddos have gotten pretty big and so has Bella Bliss.

Now that I have two little kiddos, it’s fun to pick out things for them from their adorable line. That’s why you’ll find me in Lexington next week combing through their annual Warehouse Sale. If you’ve got kids, nieces or nephews or need to buy some baby presents – I suggest you mark your calendar for June 25th – June 27th and head over to Sayre School (194 N. Limestone) in Lexington to snag some sweet, super soft and seriously cute kids clothes on big time sale. Items will be as low as $5 and nothing will be more than $30 (that includes their precious sweaters).

Even better, the sale isn’t just a way to move out the old and bring in the new but Bella Bliss uses it as an opportunity to raise money for charity. This year it’s benefiting Kosair Children’s Hospital here in Louisville. It’s especially important to them because Katherine, the owner’s daughter and the sweet little girl (that’s her on the far left as a munchkin and in the glasses all grown up in the big picture) that I babysat, spent a lot of time there during her first three years.

All the details are below. Just remember no strollers allowed.
