MAYMOD Runway Event

I. AM. SO. EXCITED.

Do y’all remember that killer fashion show we put on last year with our friends at Noggins Salon? The above pictures may help. 😉 It was A Midsummer Night’s Runway Event with all the glittery, fairy-esque goodness we could squeeze through our doors. Well, we are back for round two, and it’s going to be even cooler than it was last year (if that is even possible! Because if you were here, you remember how amazing it was. Such a fun night!) Our theme this time is MAY MOD. We’re going all modern in the month of May and the ideas we have circulating are simply great.

I think the reason I’m most excited about this event is because it’s benefiting Magnolia Speech School. MSS has become very dear to my heart because my third baby, sweet little mister Dempsey Donahoo (picture of his happy face here!), was born in November with complete deafness. He has profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, so my husband and I have started the process to get our baby hearing and speaking, and a major player in Dempsey’s journey has been (and will continue to be) Magnolia Speech School. We’ve begun early intervention therapy with MSS and we adore our interventionist. He is a doll and is a fabulous representative for this school that is doing so much to help the hearing impaired kiddos around our area!

We have a lot of moving parts and a few more details we are trying to nail down before we can present the full lineup of shops participating in the show, but for now…

SAVE THE DATE! Thursday, May 9th at SummerHouse in Ridgeland. 7 til 9 p.m.  Fashion for the whole family!

Tickets will be available for online purchase once we get that set up. They’ll be $20 for general admission or $120 for admission plus a reserved, runway-side seat. Also, two words: SWAG BAGS. But more on all that later!

MAYMOD Runway Event

Make sure you’re following SummerHouse on Instagram to stay well updated on everything regarding #MayModness (<< our official event hashtag.) We hope you’ll make plans to attend!

As always, thank you for checking in today. I hope your week is going smoothly so far! 🙂

A Local Love Affair with Leontine Linens

A Local Love Affair with Leontine Linens

So I told y’all about our upcoming Local Love Affair in Oxford happening February 9th HERE, but now’s the time to give y’all the info on our Ridgeland Local Love Affair on February 12th! As a reminder, this is all part of Lee Loves Local week. No, Lee is not a person, but a company! LEE Industries is an American-made upholstery company that loves their local community so much that they wanted to spread that brand of love all over the country, hence these fun events during a designated week every year! So if you live too far away to come to one of our Lee Loves Local events, try to find a LEE dealer near you and attend their event!

For our Ridgeland shop’s love affair, we’re teaming up with one of our favorite brands: Leontine Linens. This beautiful, locally owned brand out of New Orleans is coming up for a pop-up shop on Tuesday the 12th. If you haven’t seen their custom bedding and linens, you have GOT to come! They’re stunning, and all custom made, so you can make them look however you want! From 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., we will be giving away fantastic door prizes from local friend businesses, serving up bubbly and yummy little desserts, and oohing and aahing over the pretty Leontine pieces. Leontine will even do some live demonstrations at 4:30 and at 7:00 teaching us how to make the prettiest beds and set the prettiest tables. We can’t wait!

Here are some of my favorite looks created with Leontine pieces so you can get an idea of what you’ll see at this pop-up. Be sure to check out their instagram for more pretty pics (and to see who the original designers are on these spaces!)

I’m drooling. I love the range that Leontine covers! You can go a little more modern, or you can do super traditional, or land somewhere in the middle. And it’s all gorgeous! [ insert the heart eyes ]

Don’t forget that, just like at the Oxford event, we will offer 25% off all LEE items as well as off most of what we have in stock, even if it isn’t LEE. AND, enjoy 20% off custom LEE orders placed during Lee Loves Local week!

There is so much to look forward to. I hope to see y’all at this event! Let me know if y’all have any questions about anything!

A Local Love Affair in Oxford

A LOCAL LOVE AFFAIR

Hey y’all! We have been quite energized over here at the SummerHouse (at both locations) because Lee Loves Local festivities are gearing up! We are hosting two separate events: One at our Ridgeland store, and one at our Oxford store! Today, I want to give y’all a little info about the Oxford event. More details about the Ridgeland event coming soon!

So first off, let’s talk about exactly what Lee Loves Local even is! I commonly hear the question, “Who is Lee?” Well, Lee is not actually a human. Lee is a company! One of our favorite upholstery brands, to be more specific! Lee Industries is a fabulous, American-made line of upholstery based in North Carolina and this company loves their local community so well. They are plugged in and very invested into the local culture of their community. This local love gives them so much energy and positivity that they wanted all of their dealers’ local communities to experience that same love and energy, hence the implementation of LEE LOVES LOCAL week. For one week every February, Lee dealers all over the country partner up with other local vendors to put on cool events. Since February is the month of love, it just seemed natural 😉

You can see more about our past Lee Loves Local events HERE!

So our LEE LOVES LOCAL events this year are entitled “A Local Love Affair.” Our Oxford love affair, happening on Saturday, February 9th, involves artist Chelsea Fly, a really cool garden shop called The Oil Shed, and a wildly talented cookie creator Sarah Hutto from The Cookie Canvas of Mississippi. (I linked each of their Instagrams– please go follow each! You’ll fall in love, I promise!) Each of these three vendors will have a booth set up in our Oxford store selling small pieces of art, cool succulent and floral arrangements, and beautiful cookies, respectively. We’ll have light bites, cocktails, live music, the whole nine. It’s going to be really fun! Oh, and most of the store will be 25% off, plus 20% off on Lee special orders! This is BIG!

Here’s an idea of what these fab companies will have for you on the 9th!

I’m personally EXTREMELY obsessed with those Valentine piñata cookies that break open and reveal sprinkles! How freaking cute is that?! And of course, I’ve been a long time fan of Miss Chelsea Fly’s gorgeous work. And who doesn’t love a fresh floral or succulent arrangement in a non-cheesy valentine-y container?! So much goodness will go into this event!

A LOCAL LOVE AFFAIR

We really hope to see y’all at this all day event. We’ll have giveaways, too, so you’ll definitely want to get in on those! Follow SummerHouse Oxford on Instagram to stay up to date with the latest, most up-to-date event info!

And check back in here in a few days for more info on the Ridgeland LEE LOVES LOCAL event! Can’t wait to share more about that! 😉

Y’all are awesome for stopping in. We love when you take time to visit! Many Xs and Os!

Hotty Toddy Pillow Party

Hotty Toddy Pillow Party with Rebecca Vizard of B.Viz Pillows

What are you doing this Friday afternoon? Nothing so important that it can’t be rescheduled? GREAT! Then we would love for you to join us for a Hotty Toddy Pillow Party at SummerHouse | Oxford from 1:00 to 4:00 on Friday! I’m a Mississippi State fan, and I think I’m more excited about the Hotty Toddy Pillow Party than anybody! I mean, you have to admit, then name of the party is pretty darn clever even if you don’t pull for the team. Agreed?

So what is this pillow party all about, you ask? Well, Rebecca Vizard, friend of SummerHouse, designs these FANTASTIC pillows that are seriously so stunning that it’s hard to take in the exquisiteness. She does a couple of different types of pillows: Hand painted on linen, then crafted pillows with found materials. Each crafted pillow is one of a kind, is handmade, and uses materials that Rebecca personally sources from all over the world. You do not want to miss the opportunity to see lots of these all in one place. I promise you! The hand painted linen ones are stunning too, adorned with designs that Rebecca also created.

In addition to pillows, she will have dog collars and Christmas stockings! You’ve got to come see!

She has also written a book, Once Upon A Pillow, which she will be signing. These would make great gifts for any interior design lovers in your world. Why not get a jump start on Christmas shopping by taking home a handful of these?

We’ll have snacks, cocktails, and some great company, so please make plans to stop by. I can’t wait to meet you! See you 10/19 from 1-4!

A Midsummer Night’s Runway Event

Boy do we have some big news to share with y’all! In case you haven’t seen us mention it on our Instagram or Facebook over the past couple of weeks, we are teaming up with our friends at Noggins Organic Salon to put on a MAJOR runway event on July 19th! This event is going to be spectacular…

Our theme is A Midsummer Night, and it is going to be simply magical. But first, allow us to give you the basics!

Our friends at Noggins approached us asking if we’d be interested in partnering on a runway show. Of course we said yes! At our first meeting, we determined a theme: A Midsummer Night. Think flowers, fairy wings, organic style, lots of white, lots of natural, magic, glitter, delicate desserts, champagne, whimsy… With a bit of an avant-garde twist in the form of lots and lots of JEWELS.

A Midsummer Night's Runway Event // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Without giving too much away, we are putting all of this on with the participation of several local boutiques and shops. This runway show will not only appeal to women, but to men and children as well, as we will have styles for the entire family represented on the catwalk! Row 10 Baby, HemlineBlithe & Vine, 4450, The Rogue, Sollberger’s, Beckham Jewelry, and Albrition’s Jewelry will present the looks. (Be sure you go and follow all of these businesses on Instagram– their accounts are linked above!– to keep up with all the fun!) Noggins Salon will do models’ hair and Galexie Glister will finish off the makeup looks.

Little Bluestem Farm will lend their floral talents and La Brioche is providing dainty desserts to make this event over the top beautiful. Y’all, we. cannot. WAIT.

Perhaps the most important thing about this evening is that all proceeds go to our friends at CARA (Community Animal Rescue and Adoption.) We love the work that this shelter does in keeping pets of all kinds safe and healthy until they find their forever homes. Did you know that CARA runs solely on donations?! They absolutely cannot keep doing their work without community support, so we are asking that each guest give a minimum $15 donation at the door. This donation will get you one entry into a raffle drawing for several INCREDIBLE prizes: Gift cards to Arco Avenue, salon services from Noggins, services from SummerHouse, jewelry, a whitening treatment from Uptown Dental, and SO much more! Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase at $10 each. Again, all money goes to CARA!

(pictured above: our inspirational mood board for the event)

We will end with this piece of excitement: The first 20 guests to enter A Midsummer Night’s Runway Event will be gifted an incredible swag bag. Y’all will not believe the incredible donations that have been given to these swag bags! We won’t ruin the surprise, but we will tell you this: YOU WILL WANT ONE.

Start picking out your “summer fairy best” and make plans to join us at SummerHouse on July 19th at 7 p.m. for an event unlike any other to ever hit our area! Be sure to join the Facebook event to keep updated on all event news. We can’t wait to see you!

Call us at 601-853-4445 to make an appointment with Mark to discuss him making a piece just for you!

Lee Loves Local at SummerHouse

We are getting VERY excited about our upcoming Lee Loves Local event next Saturday, February 11th! One of the aspects we are most excited about is the food and drink! We’ll give you a taste of what we have in store, but you’ll definitely have to be here on the big day to fully enjoy!

As far as beverages, we will have bartenders from The Manship (which has an award-winning bar) to mix up a couple of their most popular daytime cocktails! Cathead Vodka is providing us with some of their locally distilled vodka and gin to keep things extra “Mississippi!” Also to be made with Cathead Vodka are the Bloody Marys, which will feature Debutante Farmer’s Bloody Mary Mix! We are pumped about this! Lucky Town Brewery is also going to have some local brews as part of the bar.

One of our most beloved neighbors, Fusion Coffeehouse, will have a setup with coffee and hot chocolate, should there be a need for a little extra warmth (or caffeine!), so we will have something for everyone!

Lurny D’s Grille, a burger food truck which a few of our staff members are particularly fond of, will be here keeping our tummies from rumbling! In addition to burgers, Chef Jeremy Enfinger from County Seat in Livingston is planning to prepare some lighter bites for throughout-the-day grazing! We will let the details on those light bites be a surprise, but we can tell you this: It’s gonna be good.

We are so fortunate to have such wonderful food and drink right here in the Jackson area. One thing we hear often from out-of-towners is how spectacular our local food scene is! And we have to agree. We live in a gold mine of exciting food and drink!

As the cherry on top of all of the above good news… The bar drinks will be served from The Karovan Bar! This is the cutest little bar you ever did see! It’s the prettiest white and natural wood trailer that was made (literally) for events like this! We are thrilled to have them as part of the goings on. 🙂

Stay tuned for more information on our panel coming next week! This panel discussion is one you will not want to miss!

Thanks so much for dropping by today. We can’t wait to see you on February 11th!

Ignite The Night: London Calling!

Ignite The Night: London Calling

So you guys have heard about our Lee Loves Local event coming up on February 11th, right?! It’s going to be incredible… We can’t tell you how excited we are about it! (More about that here!)

Well, since Lee Loves Local ends at 4, but you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t want the excitement to end… We have an idea of what you could do starting at 7!

Ignite The Night: London Calling is a big, grownups-only fundraiser event at the Mississippi Children’s Museum that is always such a highlight! This is their biggest fundraiser every year, so the people who plan it go all out. And each year the theme is different. This year, it’s all about exciting London-town! Think Spice Girls, the Underground, all things Buckingham and Royal, tea with the Queen, fish and chips, Austin Powers, Beefeaters (both people and gin) and SO much more!

Alicen Blanchard, one of our favorite people ever, is heading this event up this year, so it can’t help but be great! She has Kendall Poole, our favorite event planner, executing the details. And 4Top Catering, which we have used before at our own events, is doing the food! Killer team, if you ask us! 🙂

To assist in taking this event to the next level, our very own Lisa Palmer is going to be Amy Winehouse at the event! Yes, Amy Winehouse is back and sounding better than ever! Two of Lisa’s sons will be getting in on a set, too, so you can’t miss this!

Here’s a sampling of the fun had at past events. This year, it’ll be even better!!

Find out more about the fun here. And don’t hesitate to ask us any questions! If we don’t know the answers, we can get them! 🙂

Have a great week! As always, thanks for stopping by!
