Hi everyone, and happy Sunday!

I'd like to take the time to introduce myself. I'm Robin, and I'm happy to say that I'm Mint Julep's newest shop girl! Based out of the New York store, this is my second day in training and I'm still trying to figure out the ways of a Mint Julep girl. Brooke and Stephanie have been the sweetest and most patient teachers that a gal could ask for, so I'm pretty lucky!

It's only my second day here, and I've already got my eye on so many things in the store! The fall season will be here before we know it and I've been feeling the need for some new duds as it is. Let's just say that spending my day surrounded by all of the lovely pieces at Mint Julep has me itching to add some new pieces to my already cramped wardrobe.

Here are some of my Mint Julep favorites:

This Plenty Frock! by Tracy Reese features so many beautiful colors, and reminds me of a watercolor painting.

These Fenoma Teal Resin studs are the perfect way to compliment a casual outfit. Simple and understated, but the teal color makes it perfect for Fall!
This Kyumi Dot Top would be perfect under a blazer. Bonus-it's a racer back!

And finally, this Lia Molly cardigan which features front pockets that resemble coin purses. Too adorable and too clever!

That's all for me for now, but I'll look forward to meeting you all in the future. Stop in and say hello!

Shout out in Fitness Magazine!

Pictured on page 58 in Fitness Magazine (and Mint Julep got the photo credit!), it’s been a hit from the moment it touched the racks here at Mint Julep. This zipper down twill short sleeve jumper is perfect for the fall when the air is just getting chilly, but it will carry you all throughout the winter when you add a long sleeve, tights, and some tall boots.

Features: front breast pocket with snap closure, two front pockets with snap closures, brass buttons and exposed brass zipper down the front

Fabric: 100% cotton

Length: 33” from top to bottom (size M)

Spotted: Juleps plotting a sneak attack on a dessert spread at the Four Seasons

Recently at Mint Julep we all went out for a night out on the town at the Bristol Lounge, Julep Style. For those of you who don't know us, a Julep's idea of a night out on the town usually consists of an opportunity to dress up in a pretty dress (obviously) and consume obscene amounts of food! Nothing is more shocking than a Julep's ability to put away some "snacks" and, in this case, we really pulled out all the stops. We feasted on truffle fries, cheese plates, and (as you can see in the pic) an array of desserts fit for a queen! So, if you're ever out and about and you see a splash of color and a flurry of hands reaching for some may have found us!
