Remember Nguyen and Kissy Kissy

Fresh out of the boxes and out on the racks!!!

From Remember Nguyen:
Seersucker bubbles for my big months (12-24 months) in a pink and white stripe for the girls or blue and white stripe for the boys. These would be adorable monogrammed or plain!
And to coordinate: for my toddlers (2T-4T) blue and white stripe seersucker jon jon or a blue and white stripe seersucker shirt for my big brothers.
All my little girls would be so angelic in this apron dress or capri set. Both have an angel smocked on blue and white gingham with pink and white gingham trim. The tie-back apron dress comes in 12M-24M and the capri set from 2T-5!

And their toddler brother would also look angelic in this blue and white gingham jon jon! The jon jon has a plain yoke perfect for monogramming! We have done it with their first name or just their initials.
Blue pique shorts are a perfect addition to any little boy’s wardrobe. These come in toddler sizes up to a size 6 but are sizes very generously!

A few more outfits from Kissy Kissy:
Just in time for Easter are these knit rompers with bunnies embroidered on the pocket and legs. These would be perfect for Easter egg hunting or even to wear past Easter. Who says bunnies are just for Easter!
A cowboy inspired printed daygown would be perfect for any little newborn.

A super soft simple pink /white and blue/white stripe pants set are perfect for those cool Spring days!

Easter Basket Stuffers

It has been estimated that around 90% of children in the US receive some form of gift-filled Easter basket during the holiday season. A recent NCA (National Confectioners Association) survey also discovered that chocolate bunnies are the most popular Easter basket item - some 90 million are sold every year. Jelly beans come second with a staggering 16 billion jelly beans sold annually. With increasing awareness of health issues, some parents are reducing the amount of sugar treats and instead adding non-edible gifts and toys as basket stuffers. Here are some of our “healthy” suggestions from the store:
  1. A new bathing suit. Go by TJ Maxx or Target and get a cute coordinating beach towel, bring it to the store and we will have the towel and suit monogrammed to match. Then go by Old Navy and get some flip flops to complete their pool or beach attire!
  2. Fontaine Maury plates, stickers, notecards, etc. Deadline for ordering for guaranteed Easter delivery is this Friday (March 1st).
  3. Stuff plastic Easter eggs with new hairbows or monogrammed diaper covers to match their new Spring wardrobe.
  4. A new pair of Spring At Home pajamas.
  5. Clausen’s underwear for boys and girls. (I have one customer whose little boy refuses to wear anything but the boxer/brief and he always gets a new pack in his basket.)
  6. A new hooded towel from Doodlebug Designs.

What’s in your basket? Leave your ideas in the comment section and the best one will get 25% off one Spring item! Deadline is Monday, March 3rd!

From Gordon and Company are 3 different Eton suit (shorts and jacket) options which are great for Easter or for a Ring Bearer outfit. One is solid blue linen, one is blue seersucker, and the other an ecru linen all accompanied with a white pointed collared shirt.

Petit Frere has been one of our favorite lines for little boys…well this season Petit Frere became a big brother to Petit Soeur (a girl’s version)! These lines are great “play” clothes options and all coordinate well together! We have a blue knit romper, a green seersucker stripe a-line jumper or a green seersucker striped john john all featuring a super cute turtle appliqué.

Hungry, Hungry Hippos adorn this hot pink gingham seersucker stripe a-line jumper, a navy seersucker stripe john john, or a navy seersucker stripe short and tee combo! Super cute for sister and brother!
