This Saturday could be the last market of the year for Girls Day Out. 2011 has been a blast. I am amazed at how much GDO continues to grow with the support of loyal customers and small businesses. Just wait to see what's in store for 2012!

Today I met with the owners of Eloise in downtown Charlottesville, VA. The boutique space is full of stylish clothing and accessories to fit every mood. As GDO continues to grow and make it's way into boutiques far and wide, I will always admire the passion and commitment of the small business store fronts. It came across so clear today with the ladies at Eloise. I am thrilled to be doing business with such great people. To visit Eloise online, go to www.shopeloise.com. Or, visit the boutique at 219 West Water St,. Charlottesville, VA. You will love the handpicked pieces from Girls Day Out, now available at Eloise.

Recently, I met with the owner of The Green Roost. This shop is one of my favorite spots to visit in downtown Culpeper, VA. The theme of eco friendly, handmade, repurposed and recycled is carried throughout the shop with furniture, organic clothing, handmade decor and jewelry. Careful selections were made from our 2011 Fall designs. And, I am excited to announce that some of my favoriate GDO pieces will be available later this month at The Green Roost. Thank you for supporting handmade artists!
