Today is an exciting day here on Pitt Street (for many reasons)!!  First off, it is Megan and my birthdays today!!  It is absolutely gorgeous outside-who doesn't love 70 degree weather in January?! We finally have samples in the store so everyone can come in, check out the clothes in person, and place an order with us to ship or for in store next-day pick up (pick up is no charge!).  And last, but not least, the 50% off fall inventory sale has started in the store-we're making room for the new spring line :).  I don't think today could get any better.

Gift Certificate Giveaway!!

We were thinking that we should spice things up a little bit and get everyone even more excited about the Spring 2012 line by having three $20 gift certificate giveaways this week!!!
Here's how it works:
-We tested our first giveaway yesterday.  Tomorrow (Wednesday) I will be putting up a photo album on Facebook titled "Favorite BATHING SUIT/BUBBLE" and Friday will be "Favorite BOYS' OUTFIT".
-Your job is to find your favorite bathing suit/bubble in the album (Wednesday) and favorite boys' outfit (Friday).
-"Tag" yourself in ONE photo-at the right bottom it says "tag this photo", click that and type in your name and finish by clicking tag photo!

It's as simple as that!!  I will then randomly choose a winner and will email you the $20 gift certificate!!! 

Hope everyone is getting excited!  I have tomorrow's album all ready to go.. I'll try and get it posted online in the morning so get ready :).

It's catalog time!

These past few weeks have been crazy busy!!  As you all know, we just received the Spring 2012 shipment- soo much to do!  On top of unpacking all the boxes, organizing the clothes, and getting out your orders, I've been trying to get ready to get those precious catalogs out to everyone!  Every day for the past two weeks I have been adding all of your names and addresses to a spreadsheet (those who have sent them to me).  The next step is printing labels and sticking them on the almost 3,000 (ah so many!!) catalogs!!!

Isn't it adorable?! 

If you haven't already requested a catalog to be mailed to you, you can email info@shrimpandgritskids.com or click on the "request catalog" link on the website and I'll add you to the list-if you received a catalog last season, you're on this list already!  I always like to have the catalog in my hand when ordering :).

We will hopefully be getting them out soon so you can place your orders and get your little ones dressed in the perfect Spring and Summer clothes!!!!

SPRING is here!!!!

After a long, long, longgg wait...our Spring 2012 line is FINALLY here!!!  We watched the clock tick away all day Tuesday awaiting our large shipment (148 boxes, can you believe it?!).  After what seemed like a lifetime had passed, it arrived in Charleston late afternoon and we had a big task ahead of us.. unpacking the boxes into our warehouse, organizing by styles and sizes, and finally (the most exciting part), shipping out your orders!!!  And so just in case you were wondering, it is Thursday and we are STILL finishing up the whole process and beginning the fun part so you can get your pretty spring clothes asap :). 

Look at all those boxes!!!

Even though it may look like a lot of boxes of clothes, they sell fast so get your orders in!! This new spring line is SO cute I can't imagine it lasting long.  If you placed an order already we are expecting to start shipping out this afternoon so keep a look out for your package!!!

Trunks, trunks, trunks!!!!

After a nice trip to New York for the holidays; much needed time spent with family, friends, and getting used to the FREEZING weather.. getting back in to the swing of this has been a little difficult. Charleston welcomed me with it's beautiful 70 degree weather in late December (nothing wrong with that!) and now the frigid arctic must have come back with me and is gracing us with weather in the mid 30's!? One of the reasons I came down south was for the nice warm weather, not this! brr

Anyways, after getting back into the swing of things again, I realized that it's that time of year again...TRUNK SEASON yayy!! The first shows of the season start next week :). I know that everyone is excited to get their little ones all dressed up in our new Spring 2012 line!!! (If you haven't already, check it out on our website!) It'll be warmer sooner than you think!!

Do you want to go to a trunk show or even HOST a show (who doesn't need a little extra cash these days)...?
To simply inquire about a rep near you email scheduling@shrimpandgritskids.com and Mary (our rep coordinator) will put you in touch with the closest rep! So simple!
Interested in maybe hosting a show? (it's so simple AND you get free clothes!) First, email Mary at the same email above and she will put you in contact with the closest rep to get you set up! It really is so simple to host a show...all you have to have is a lot of friends that love smocked clothes!

There are only a few steps to take to have a party...
First- the rep will give you invitations and catalogs to send out to your friends and order forms to take orders on.

Second- the trunk will be brought to you so that all of your friends can see the clothes up close and personal! :)
Third- HAVE A PARTY!!!! (the best part!) It can be as simple as just laying the clothes out or we've had people that have a full on casual cocktail party! Your friends tell you what they want, you write it down on the order forms, and the rep comes back to pick up the trunk and forms AND YOU'RE DONE!
You may be wondering what you get out of this? (besides an excuse to have a party), right? Well you get 15% of your total sales in store credit! For example, if you sell $500, you would get $75 worth of free clothes. We take it directly off of your order from your show so it's never even charged to your card.
ANDDD- at the end of each season we email all of the reps and hostesses a 40% off discount code to use for another order. That is a lot of FREE CLOTHES (everyone's favorite!).
*The only requirements are to sell at least $500 worth of clothes and you have to place a personal order (but why wouldn't you want to after looking at clothes from our Spring 2012 line?)!
That's the low down on hosting a show so now all you have to do is get on the computer and email scheduling@shrimpandgritskids.com to get set up :)!

The trunks went out yesterday, so it's time to have a PARTY!!!
