Merry Christmas Stella Shoppers! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are gearing up for New Year's. Today is Boxing Day in many countries and that means big sales. There are some fantastic sales happening at some of my favorite boutiques right now so this is the weekend to get out and save. 12 South
imogene + willie - I was super excited to see these pretty i+w packages under my tree this year. The hubs got me a gorgeous necklace and the Florence cape! I will be living in this cape this winter. You can still take advantage of their free shipping offer through December 31.
Stacey Rhodes Boutique - Their big winter sale is happening now. Many sale items are now 75% off (including all Toms shoes), and many more items have been marked down to 50% off! All sequin dresses and tops are 25%.
House of Stella - There is always a plentiful sale rack here, but honestly, most items are under $100. Take some of that Christmas cash, skip the mall and go straight to House of Stella.
Johnnie Q - Another place you should take that Christmas cash...Johnnie Q. Owner, Brooklyn Byrd has an amazing eye for accessories and her shop is packed with amazing baubles, bags and other accessories.
Billy Reid - Many sale items have been marked down even further.
The Cosmetic Market - Special sale at their brand new Opry Mills store.
Monkee's - Visit Monkee's new location on Bandywood and save at their post holiday sale.
Ten Thousand Villages - This is one of my favorite places to shop. They always have unique gifts and since everything is fair trade, you can feel extra good about your purchases.
Woo - You've got a few more days to build up those Woo bucks that you can spend in January.
Fabu - My other favorite gift spot is having their post holiday sale.
Boutique Bella - Take advantage of Boutique Bella's special sale deals through the end of December.
UAL - Sometimes you go to UAL and you feel like you have hit the motherload. This is one of those times. The past few weeks here have been unbelievable. Deal after deal after deal. We're talking Loeffler Randall and Pour la Victoire shoes for $45. Calvin Klein boots for $30. Cashmere sweaters for the guys for $50. Wool sweater vests for $20. Insane. There are still plenty of deals to be had so make sure UAL is on your sale shopping list.
Happy Shopping and Happy New Year!!
It's crunch time Stella Shoppers. We're closing in on those final days of shopping. Are you feeling the pressure? Between Marcia's rockin' gift guides (Foodie, Trendsetter and Gents) all of the fabulous holiday markets happening this weekend, and the Stella Shops Boutique, you should be able to finish that shopping with relative ease. While we're talking about all our local shopping awesomeness, take a minute to take the Yelp Shops Local Pledge! Did you know for every $100 you spend at an independent retailer, $45 stays local? Think before you buy. Those dollars add up and they help our community and our economy. Our network of local retailers is what makes Nashville so unique, so let's keep it that way. Our friends at Yelp (namely, our Sustainable Style Editor, Marcia) are hosting several Shop Local events between now and Christmas. The first one is this Sunday at Gaslamp and Gaslamp Too. Check in on your Yelp mobile app with #YelpShopsLocal to earn a $10 gift card with every $100 purchase. A few of our favorite retailers will be offering specials at their booths on Sunday and treats will be served while you shop.
Nest Interiors Booth #T271 - 15-20% off entire booth
Anita Schmadtke Designs #T285 - 15-20% off entire booth
Dirt by Jason Parker Counce Designs #T309 - 15-20% off entire booth
Retropolitan #T714 - 15-20% off entire booth
If you've ever wanted to be a part of a Cash Mob, Sunday is your big chance! Marcia and her merry band of Yelpers (that's you!) will meet outside Zanie’s Comedy Club (2025 8th Avenue South) at 12pm to surprise one local, and deserving business with a “Cash” mob event. You'll head to the small business in that neighborhood spend a little cash and spread some holiday cheer! And don't worry, you don't need to spend much. Read all the details here!
Other Yelp Shops Local events will be held on Dec. 19 in The Gulch and Dec. 20 in East Nashville. Plus there are tons of pop-up specials at some of our favorite shops from East Nashville to Franklin, so check out the Yelp Shops Local Page for all the details!!
And in case that's not enough, Yelp's got you covered after the holidays with their Holiday Hangover Pass. Yelp Nashville has teamed up with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to offer a discounted shopping pass from January 1st – 31st. A $10 donation to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee will unlock discount opportunities at a large list of participating businesses from Franklin to East Nashville as a finale to the Yelp Shops Local initiative.

I've been smitten with whats-in-store this season. How about these necklaces and earrings?
There are tons of other fabulously affordable options at whats-in-store.com that are perfect for accessorizing those holiday party outfits or for finishing up your holiday shopping.
Beamhaus - This new design collective, based here in Nashville, has released a collection of luxury leather cases for iPhone, iPad and MacBook Air that get better looking the more you carry them. I am lusting over these pieces and that iPad case needs to be mine. Those MacBook Air cases would make amazing clutches. With nothing priced over $150, this limited-edition collection makes the perfect gift.
Sold Out! Just kidding...this is the one I've got my eye on. Beamhaus iPad Portfolio ($100)
Beamhaus MacBook Air 11" Portfolio or a chic clutch...you decide. ($150)

Men's cashmere sweater vests for $30, cashmere sweaters for $50 and men's merino wool sweaters for $19 are just a few of the amazing deals for men. I also managed to score a pair of gorgeous Stella McCartney pants and a pair of Marni pants for $45 each! Should we talk about the shoes? I had three pairs at the register in 15 minutes and none of the were over $60. Shoes and women's pants were 50% off on Sunday so that's why I scored so well. Check UAL's Facebook page daily to get the details on each day special.

The Black Friday frenzy is officially here. I don't know about you, but all these Black Friday television commercials are making me feel a little anxious.

I've checked out a few of my favorites this week and they have some great gift items that you're going to be much happier giving and receiving. This Saturday is Small Business Saturday, but really every day should be a day that you support local businesses.
