Crazy for Prints (AND a giveaway)

Lately, I've found myself drawn to prints, especially when it comes to dresses and skirts. In the past month, I've purchased two print dresses and one print skirt, which is quite unusual for me considering I tend to stick to solids. Prints can be such a fun addition to one's wardrobe, although, if like me, you typically stick to solids, accessories are a great way to get started!

It just so happens that on June 23rd, Beachwood Place is celebrating the grand opening of Northeast Ohio's first Vera Bradley store, a place KNOWN for its fun and girlie prints. If you're not familiar with Vera Bradley, the company was founded by two friends in 1982. The Cleveland store will be one of only 43 Vera Bradley stores in the U.S. (yay! for Cleveland!! Another retail "get") and will carry the full line of Vera Bradley accessories, handbags and gift items.  Two of my favorite prints in the line are the Deco Daisy and Baroque, shown in the handbag and duffel below!

As with any of its grand openings, Beachwood and Vera Bradley are offering some opening specials. If you're so inclined, you can be one of the first people to visit the store from 5pm-8pm on the 23rd. For the grand opening on June 24th, shoppers will receive $20 off a future purchase when they spend over $75 or more through July 3rd! AND, in honor of the grand opening, Beachwood Place has been kind enough to host a giveaway on this blog!!!
