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:::.

Holiday Gift Guide: Kids

1 Dec

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…

 blog

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.

Wee Ones Basic Bow: $8.50
Rolf Bleu iPhone 5 purse case: $28

And for the boys?

This gift set is basically a sleepover in a bag. The Made with Love and Kisses lounge pant looks cozy enough to spend the entire holiday season in and between the ever popular Magformers and Yackety Smack! game, this might be the first year you don’t have to argue over who gets the rights to TV time!

Hey, on a serious note, do those lounge pants come in adult sizes?

Holiday Gift Guide: Infant

22 Nov

We’re back again! This time, we are adding to our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide by giving some ideas for our bouncing baby girls and boys!

If you haven’t stopped by our kid’s store on Royal Poinciana Way, then we strongly suggest you stop and drop whatever you are doing, get in your car, and go. Because we have so many adorable new additions for the little ones in your life that you may just wonder if it’s time that you had one (or another one) of your own!

First, we have some gift ideas for the little girly-girls. We all know the best part about shopping for infant girls is that the more pink you dress them in, the better! Check out some of our picks for our future princesses!

Let’s not forget about the boys. People may say that they’re made of snips, snails and puppy-dog tails–but we think that they’re just as perfectly adorable as the little ladies, so we did our best to pick out some of the best-selling infant boy items!

 blog

Jellycat Jungly Tails book: $16.50
Jellycat Medium Bashful Giraffe: $20

Bye for now!

Passing the crown: An Intro to Rapunzel’s Newest Princesses

14 Nov

When we learned of two of our Rapunzel’s princesses were going to be leaving the kingdom of Rapunzel Closet, we couldn’t help but be a little disappointed. But once our tears dried, we realized the silver lining. That meant that we were going to have a new princess joining our Rapunzel Family!

With that, we would like to introduce the newest member of our team. This beautiful brunette is named Christina and she has joined us just in time  for the holidays and to bring a new personal style and fresh fashionable viewpoint to our Palm Beachers.

“I love clothes with sophisticated tailored lines with a dash of edgy jewelery,” says Christina. 

Christina’s Fave Brands: J Brand Jeans and Bourbon and Boweties.

Now that you’ve met Christina, we think it’s time that Christina met you! So come stop by Rapunzel’s and meet her! She might just might be your fashion soul sister!

Bye for now!

Stache and Shop!

13 Nov

Stache and Shop
Have you noticed a stark increase in local guys checking out their facial hair in every mirror they pass? Yes, us too!

That must mean one thing-it must be “Movember”! Every man’s favorite month of the year! Where they are allowed, and expected, to grow a mustache to show support for men’s health.

blog

But the fun wasn’t just for the boys anymore, Rapunzel’s Closet decided to get in on the fun by hosting our very own Stache and Shop event! And lucky for us, our lovely lady customers somehow managed to still look gorge even with some full-on, facial fur! Only in Palm Beach!

Some of our favorite customers stopped by and received 20% off of their purchases, just for being good sports!

blog

“My boyfriend is having way too much fun “manscaping” his stache–I can’t wait to show him a picture of me with this on so he can see what I go through,” said one of our favorite shoppers while sporting a bright purple handlebar mustache. “And by then he wont have the heart to be mad at me for bringing home a pair of these Hudson jeans!”

Decade: Where It All Began

2 Nov

blogAs we get closer to our big 10 Year Anniversary Party we want to take you down memory lane with us. We’re going to be sharing pictures and having a Q&A with Rapunzel herself during the next few series of blog posts. We hope you enjoy reading about our past 10 years as much as we’ve enjoyed going through the pictures and talking about our favorite memories!

Interview with Rapunzel Part 1

1.       How did you get the nickname Rapunzel?
RES: My dad gave it to me when I was born.  I think he really liked the name Rapunzel and to this day, still calls me by it.

2.       How did you decide on the Rapunzel’s Branding? The RC logo, bag/tissue colors?
RES: My grandma’s favorite color was purple, and when I was little she had a gift shop in the front of my grandpa’s postcard company’s warehouse.  So I wanted a purple store.  And I thought the lime green was a good accent color to go with it.
3.       What was your favorite part about owning the gift shop?
RES: My favorite part of the shop was merchandising.  I loved moving things around, cleaning and reorganizing. (It’s still my favorite part today)

4.       What gift item was your favorite to sell?
RES: My favorite gift item to sell were the wooden animal clocks.  They were so unique, and handmade in the US. I loved selling them and sometimes I was even able to customize them.  We once made a blue pelican for the Palm Beach Day School auction.

Intermezzo: Ode to Minnie Rose

15 Aug

blogIf you haven’t tried on one of Minnie Rose’s luxurious cashmere sweaters you are really missing out. That’s how our love affair of all things Minnie Rose began a long time ago! The Resort Collection is always our favorite to see! The color palatte is sprinkled with happy pinks, greens and blues. Our old faithful favorites like sand and white always come back for Resort too. There were a few new additions to the line that we absolutely died for. blog Why not take our favorite Cashmere Pow Wow 3/4 length sleeve sweater and add buttons to it and make it a cardigan. Genius! We want one in every color! (no joke) blog Can you see that gorgeous Gold Metallic Vest on the MR rep? Yep – the one that is fabulously styled over the white tank and the jeans. We’re going to copy that exact look for our own closets. It’s a Resort MUST for 2012!

Some of our other favorites were the really fun Zig Zag Tank Dresses and Ruana Ponchos – we bought just about every color. For those of you who are Minnie Rose die hards, the Long Sleeve Striped Crew Neck Dresses are back and there are Solid Tank Dresses available in all the gorg Resort colors… sigh! blog Our ode to all things Minnie Rose just wouldn’t be complete without a shout out to our favorite Minnie Rose Rep Denise. Here she is pictured with Rapunzel herself. We love gabbing with her, we love when she calls us weekly and we love playing Scrabble and Scramble with her! Denise you rock!

Miami Swim Show: Jen’s Pirate Booty

1 Aug

In case you haven’t already guessed the Rapunzel Girls LOVE Jen’s Pirate Booty. The bohemiam chic, light weight fabrics are what gets us everytime.!blog We found some great pieces to add to our collection at the Miami Swim Show. blogThe cropped caftan will work with jeans or over a bathing suit and the tangerine shade is fresh and clean for resort. blog We weren’t sure about this drop back mini, but once we tried it on we saw how cute it was (even over our goddess dress) we were hooked.blog Another alternative to the caftan is this fringe poncho. Fringe is a great additon to any outfit.

Stop by this resort season and see what other great finds we picked up at Jen’s Pirate Booty and check out our Facebook page for more pix from our trip to the swim show!
