Spring Trend {and a Giveaway}

 I think Wednesday is replacing Friday as my favorite day of the week.  It's hump day and giveaway day.  Leading up to Shopping with Downtown Susie Brown on May 13th {huh! falls on a Wednesday} I will be giving away truly great items from some of the hottest stores in town {how fun were last week's wine glasses from Impressions?  I hope my first winner, Colleen, has enjoyed a little vino in those very Saratoga tumblers}.  How do you win?  Just write a comment on this post and I will enter your name in the drawing.  I'll announce the randomly chosen winner on Firday {another great day}. 


Jump start the Spring season with some trendy colored accessories.  Rich berry hues and neon 80's brights will dominate the Spring/Summer season.  How perfect is this soft as butter, raspberry pink leather clutch by Tano {$125 value} to get you started?  Violet's of Saratoga carries a wide variety of bags by Tano.  Laura has graciously donated this beauty for this week's giveaway.  I'm told it's better to give than to receive - but this one's going to be hard to let go of...


Good Luck!

  4. Love the color! It's the same shade of color on my pedi! The peonies that are being planted in the garden are also the same shade of pink! Love that it's not too warm or cool of a pink.

  19. Lauri is insisting this would work as a "Man Purse." I need more convincing on that front but perhaps a Mother's Day gift ?

  21. Love the fact that it can be a clutch or go over the shoulder. Very important when you are carrying lots of shopping bags.
