Hey y'all! It's Randa and I am soooooo excited about this blog post! 1) Because Southern Jewlz has made it to 6 years of being a store front retail boutique 2) Because we are getting ready to partayyyy and 3) Because I got to do a unicorn photo shoot to promote this event! Literally a dream come true to get to meet my first ever REAL LIVE Unicorn!
So this Saturday, October 15 is exactly 6 years since I opened my very first retail doors at the Little Pink Palace right outside of town here in College Station, TX. I still remember pulling an all-nighter before I opened. I wanted everything to be merchandised perfectly plus I was too excited to sleep. I can still remember driving to the store at 7:15am that next morning (literally almost 4 hours early) because I was so excited and could not believe this was going to be my for real grown up job! I think I cried over half the way, just taken over by emotions.
But you know me, and we don't like to down play anything around SJ, so we will be having a 3 day event to celebrate this Thursday, Friday and Saturday October 13-5. The store will be open each day at 11am-6pm. When deciding the theme and thinking of a 6th birthday, I was like anything I researched was for a little girl's party. Then I got to thinking - what about a twist on a sweet 16th party!? So I needed something that rhymed with teenth and in the thesaruas I found beans, jeans, leans and then hello......queen would work, too! So this will be our Sweet Six Queen party!
For those of you who haven't already entered, there is a chance to win a $300 Z Supply shopping spree on the @southernjewlz instagram account right now. The winner will be announced promptly at 11am on Thursday to kick off our party!
All 3 days we will have every customer who enters the store to spin our wheel. Here you will win a multiple of freebies or up to 20% off your purchase. There will be a candy bar (featuring Godiva Chocolate), a Photo Booth (with a unicorn twist), and lots of fun energy all around.
Thursday we are pleased to bring on 2 special people! First will be Mr. Dale Brisby himself from 2-4pm. Then we will have Courtney Ramirez, the hometown Bryan girl who is currently on The Voice television show from 4-6pm. They will each be here to meet with y'all, sign autographs and take pictures!
Then on Friday, the first 20 people to spend $20 will receive a FREE Unicorn Tee. It says "Sorry I Can't, I Have to Walk My Pet Unicorn" across the front. We will also be hosting Chance Okonski, Founder of The KIE Collection here promoting his new line that we proudly carry in the boutique from 3-6pm.
And for every $20 you spend with us, you'll get your name entered into the door prize drawing. Items up for grabs include 5 Z Supply Shirts, a makeup session and makeover with Leanna (Randa's Local Makeup Artist), 3 bedazzled Aggie caps, a custom tote bag and tee, a pair of Maroon Kendra Scott Earrings, a Facial to Galleria Day Spa and a Wine Down and Learn Makeup Class for 4 ($300 value) to Catwalk Hair Studio!
So plan to come on out and help us celebrate the life of Southern Jewlz! Thank you a million times over to everyone for their continued support, business, and encouragement. It is because of YOU that this company exists!
And now for the Unicorn Pics! Special thanks to James Barrett Photography for taking these beautiful images and to my college friend Missy Murphy for allowing me to work with her gorgeous white horse Judy!

Can't wait to see everyone this weekend!
