Mother’s Day is just a week away!  Time to make a plan if you haven’t (and we belles must admit…it’s crept up on us!). We thought we would share some swoon-worthy gift picks from some of our favorite area shops for you local belles in need of that perfect something for Mother Dear.  (and we have included some links for online shopping for those of you a bit more far-flung…can’t forget our friends from afar!)

Put these shops in your GPS and put it in drive…Cone and Coleman, Monkees of the Westend, Savvy, Paisley & Paper, Twill, and Muse.

First stop on our shopping spree…Cone and Coleman on Greenville’s Main Street – accessory heaven!  Our picks:

Perhaps a clutch?… 

cork…the perfect spring/summer neutral – $190 

or a sweet selection of sizes and colors – $325-375

These are beautiful deerskin leather, made in Italy

…and maybe a bauble or two…

so Dior – and only $89

Not your basic earring, these have an interesting edge….a must-see, and a must-buy!  The ladies at Cone and Coleman will not lead you astray.  Stop in for other suggestions!

Heading on down Main Street, we popped into Monkees…and found these excellent options:

the Tory Burch “Miller” sandal – $195

The ladies at Monkees might even know her size!!

for an accessory option: …they have a beautiful selection of Sylvia Benson necklaces…handmade in Cary, North Carolina (spreadin’ the local love)…just under the $100 mark

and for the mom who hydrates in style… 

a S’well water bottle is an excellent choice…and the large fits an entire bottle of wine! (just sayin’)

Farther down Augusta Road, we paid a visit to our friendly ladies at Savvy to pick their brains for ya.  Here are their suggestions…

How about these beautiful  Love Poppy necklaces?  And they don’t hurt the wallet!  Just $56-88

and you might have seen belles wearing some of these about town…Twine and Twig necklaces are all the rage!  ($120 – $280)

and these  Melvin tassles are just too much fun!!  The necklaces range from $95-116, but they also have bracelets from $25-45.

Moving on to our next stop….Muse Shoe Studio is our go-to shoe source, but Musette and Jenny have lots more to offer!

We belles are ALL ABOUT these rings!!!  They look far more expensive than they really are…always a good thing in our opinion!  Just $50-55

And for more bauble options, our dear friend Katherine’s Lady B Designs are always a hit…    

…beautifully creative necklaces and earrings range from $20 to $98.  Something for every budget!


and how can you not find something on their scarf wall?  At just $28-$48, you might just grab 2 or 3!


Hopping a couple of doors down…the dear belles at Twill have lots to offer.

For a multi-purpose zippered pouch…

…these Gigi lovelies can’t be beat.  And BONUS…Twill is having a Gigi Trunk Show this week from Wednesday to Saturday!!  If you can’t find it there, it can’t be had.

Piko tops

Piko tops

Twill has every color of the rainbow…and stripes to boot…in the ever-so-comfortable yet put-together-looking Piko knit tops.  Moms of all ages could LIVE in these…and they are only $32!!!  An absolute steal!!

Suzanna Dai jewelry

Suzanna Dai jewelry

And for a more ornamental option…Twill has this very creative line of baubles from Suzanna Dai.  These range in price from around $200-350 and are quite the statement!  Another BONUS!  Twill will also be featuring a trunk show for this line as well!  (again…Wednesday – Saturday of this week).

One last stop just up the way…at Paisley & Paper.  Marty has options galore!!

How about linens (napkins, aprons…) from Hen House Linens?  The colors and patterns would brighten any mom’s day!  

or these Spartina lovelies (made in Daufuskie Island…spreadin’ the local love again) would be a great option for helping to keep mom organized.  (We can use all the help we can get with that!)

– and last, but most certainly not least…how about a practical yet snazzy clip board (for more options in the organization department?)  Let us tell you, dear Marty is just the best!!  We needed a couple of these at the last minute about a week or so ago…so she whipped them up and even delivered them to our door!  Now that’s service!

So, there you have it.  A little something for any mom, wife, grandmother…on your list.  You’re welcome!!

Happy Mother’s Day!
