Holiday Gift Guide: Bosses and Grandma

18 Dec

Greetings gift givers! We’re back and ready to spread the holiday cheer with some new ideas for the boss ladies and grandmothers in your life!

Now if you’re anything like us, you count your lucky stars to have an awesome boss. So we picked out some lovely gift ideas that might just end up with you getting that corner office you’ve been dreaming of! Or at least a Starbucks coffee!

This gift set is great for the jet-setting boss who appreciates all the adventures life has to offer. Our favorite? The New York Times  “36 Hours ” books–they give great travel tips on how to spend a long weekend abroad! Maybe your boss can even start to plan a company vacation :::wink wink:::.

We’re loving these product suggestions! Whether your grandmothers style is soft and classic or if she can rock a little edge here and there, some picks of this collection are sure to get you on her “Favorite Grandchild List.”  She’s not fooling anyone, we know she has one!

16 Dec

This week we have the pleasure of hosting a trunk show for two local Palm Beach gals – Christina Coniglio and her design partner Ariel Lilly of Rae Francis and Allegra Fanjul of Jewelry by Allegra!! We love our locals and we jumped at the chance to get these talented designers all to ourselves for this special event! As an added bonus – Heather Lowenthal of Posh Parties is styling the event for us. Adam Lipson will be our guest DJ for the evening, and Gigi’s Tap and Table will be providing our sips and bites! How lucky are we??

We’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds from the evening to the Pat Reeves Village Homeless Shelter to make Welcome Baskets for the people who use the shelter. We’ll also have a donation station set up where guests can donate money directly to purchasing Welcome Basket items. We’ll be creating the baskets post event and delivering them to the shelter!

Gift Guide: Daughters and Besties

5 Dec

We are having a ball “window shopping” for this year’s gift guide. There’s nothing like putting together presents like these for the ones you love. There’s also nothing like unwrapping presents like these. So feel free to forward this link as a helpful reminder to the lovingly clueless family members we all have and love. Just sayin’.

Today, we’re talking about the pillars of our society-our daughters and our best friends! We can’t live without them, so let’s give them some presents they can’t live without either!

First up, our daughters. It is their responsibility to have our style live on and they are bound to do so with some of our picks. This selection is perfect for your favorite beach bums and are bound to result in squeals of delight upon opening! The weekend beach getaway is sold separately.

And now for our besties. If you’re anything like us, these are probably the people you struggle with the most. Always trying to outsmart the other and give the best gift (everyone does that, right?) So this year, we did the work for you and picked out some of the hippest items we have. And maybe if she’s as friendly as we imagine, she’ll  let you borrow them!

You’ll have the excuse the late post. We blame the tryptophan.

But here we are again with some gift ideas for the kiddos! This will be our last post geared towards the boys–so unfortunately, we can’t help with the picky boyfriend, husband, or brother. (Hint: Watches are always a safe bet,right?)

Back to the kids, we again picked some of our newest and best selling items for you to check out! Let’s start with the little ladies…

We are absolutely obsessed with this ensemble. The accessories make the outfit even more trendy and we’re loving the color combination. And most importantly, the skirt is perfect for twirling. We rest our case.

Have You Met Rachel?

21 Nov

You might have noticed that we took a short blogging hiatus. (Or maybe you didn’t…which opens up an entirely different can of worms…)

We’re back and we have a new voice – at least 2 times a week! Although one of our princesses left Rapunzel’s Tower for the Northeast – she’s still very much a part of our happy little team.

Meet Rachel! She is one of our funniest employees to date and also a fabulous writer. We are thrilled to have her on the team even if it is a long distance relationship!

Check out her latest posts and let us know what you think!!

Rapunzel’s Gift Guide: Moms and Teens

20 Nov

Lots of great things come with the holidays. Great food, family time, early morning mimosas and being able to wear that cashmere sweater you bought on sale last year.

But with it also comes a little holiday stress.  And if you’re anything like us, we tend to feel the pressure to give the coolest gifts to our loved ones. You know, the ones that don’t require tucked away gift receipts and the phrase, “If you don’t like it, you can just return it and get something you actually like!”

Relent no more. Rapunzel is here to give you some gift ideas for both the woman who brought you into this world and the ever-picky teens in your life.

Moms tend to be known for telling you that a hand-written card or letter is gift enough for her. But we know better. So we put together some things that will have any mom re-thinking her new favorite child.

blog

Peace Love World Love Note for Mom Scarf: $60
Give Scent Perfume: $46
Joie Mosselle Waffle Sweater: $258
TKEES Senny’s: $115
Citizen of Humanity Ava Straight Jean in Indie: $238

Teens. This is where things tend to get tricky. But lucky for you, we picked some of our best sellers from the store. And if they’re still on the fence. Tell them that you could have sworn you saw Selena Gomez rocking the same exact outfit and brand in last week’s US Weekly.

blog

Stella Cove Tween Heart Caftan: $55
T2 Love Front Pocket Short: $33
Dye it Up tie dye short: $46
Dirtee Hollywood Burnout Start Tee: $42

And if none of these suggestions toot your horn, come in and see us! All we need is a simple description of your recipient and the gift will be as perfect as if they picked it out for themselves. Princess’ Promise.
