Summer reading

My co-workers Sara and Mandy, who are clearly lovely and intelligent, have some book recommendations for us! Sara says we all need to read Augusten Burroughs' new memoir Wolf at the Table and David Sheff's Beautiful Boy. And Mandy insists that Hermione Lee's Edith Wharton is a biography worth reading (and not boring at all). Get to the bookstore folks!

Really and truly comfy summer sandals

You've got to try these on!

Here at Mint Julep in pink, yellow, and black these new thong sandals are honest-to-goodness comfortable and look gorgeous with dresses or peeking out from under trousers.

Orla Kiely

We just received a shipment of Orla's latest designs and they are cuuute! I especially love the makeup bags which have nylon liners and can be cleaned of even the most stubborn cosmetic spills.

And the fun doesn't stop there.

Per usual we received prints in shoulder bags and the larger carry-all styles as well as the messenger styles.

And this time we've been graced with some really beautiful tote styles (see below!) that are absolutely perfect for the beach. They even fit a laptop!

Graduation Season is upon us...

So we all know it's graduation season meaning that some of you need that ever evasive dress that perfectly combines parent-pleasing classiness with something you'll want to wear to the party afterward. We're happy to let you know that we've probably got you covered. If a white dress is what you need we've got tons, and if you just need something pretty and fun we've got those too! Any of us can help you find the perfect dress for your big day, so feel free to ask!

Attention Spanx Devotees; our most recent order arrived today! We've got full size spreads of Power Panties, Higher Power, footless tights, and full body slips. These puppies go fast so come visit.

Our Sister Stores!

Over the last couple of years, some of our very best friends have opened some fabulous stores around the country: Crush Boutique on Charles Street in Boston, Jac in Atlanta, GA, Ivy Hill in Columbus, OH, and Apple Seed Boutique (maternity and baby) with locations in Alexandria, VA, Gaithersburg, MD and a fantastic online store. If you find yourself in any of these areas, stop in and tell them that Mint Julep sent you!

In the press!
The girls at Crush had a big national mention in US Weekly’s VIP Scene section after Anne Hathaway dropped in for some J Brand skinny jeans. Amazing!
Open your June Lucky Magazine and flip to page 151 for a great piece on Jac in the Atlanta shopping section. Congratulations to our dear friend, Ms. Jaci Effron!

Earring arrivals!

Mint Julep is overflowing with new earrings for the Spring. Along with some of our favorite standbys (rose earrings in bright, summery yellow anyone?), our displays are sporting dyed quartz drops in loads of colors, actual leaves dipped in gold or sterling silver, and freshwater pearl studs that provide the perfect pop of color. Remember, Mother's Day is Sunday so come pick something up for your Mums!
