What a night!

We really had a great time last night at the Grand Opening!  It was hotter than hades inside the shop but that might be due to the 70 plus people we had squished in!  ha ha ha   It was great to see some old friends and make some new ones too!  This last two months have been amazing and we have had such a positive response to the shop - I'm really so thankful for everyone!  We have been in the News Press several times in the last couple of weeks and that publicity has brought us many great new customers.
Our job now is to keep finding great new products that a the perfect combination of useful, affordable and gorgeous!  We're on it people!  Remember, if there's something you think we should (or could) do, please, please tell us! 
If you didn't make it to the party last night don't worry, it will not be the last one we have!  We already have several events in the works for the coming seasons! 
Okay, I have to get back to work now, but I love you guys!

The new dresses are here!!!

We are SO excited because the new Messy Girl dresses arrived today!  They are a reversible dress that ties at the back with a grosgrain ribbon and is constructed out of two different complimentary fabrics - perfect for little girls of all ages who always like to look crisp and clean - perfect for mommies who know they can simply flip the dress over when their messy girl needs to look crisp and clean again!  Come check them out!
They come in a variety of hip, stylish fabrics and although we can't personalize them, we know you're going to like them!  Alex has already claimed one of them for herself so don't delay!

One month open . . . and counting!

Whew!  It has been a busy month in the new shop - thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by and given us encouragement - it really means a lot to know that people like what we've done!
So far the move seems to have gone very smoothly - of course everyone has been so patient with us as we search for prices on things and occasionally look dazed - and we are hoping things are just going to keep on growing!
Congrats to the winner of the Easter basket drawing - Kelly Beck, a Fort Myers resident and long time PIP customer - she is a fantastic woman who is constantly thinking of others and giving her friends and family gifts - she has a big heart and we were delighted to pull her name out of the box!
Check out the blurb about PIP on another blog:
. . . so cool!
So, what's next - well, the Grand Opening event will be on April 25th, though I'm still ironing out details - if you have any inspired ideas please share!  So far I know that Heather Harris will be on hand doing photography, my dearest pal Angela Brant is (hopefully) going to assist me with making some hand painted one-of-a-kind wine glasses, there will be champagne and cupcakes (of course) and door prizes - did I mention that one of them will be for Stephen Bonanno Sandals???  Yeah, we're generous, but our customers deserve it!
Okay, that's all for this week - I'm dog-tired from our trip to the Sony Ericsson Open and monogramming Easter baskets - I hope everyone has a great holiday and if you're going on a spring break trip be safe and come visit soon!
