Get into the Spirit at Mint Julep!

Gear up for the holidays at Mint Julep! We have everything you need to be prepared this year when the 25th rolls around. This black and gold Glam dress is perfect for a holiday party with friends. What says "holiday season" like sparkles??

If all the glitz isn't quite your style, try this adorable Corey Lynn Calter lip sweater... So festive in red and white stripes!
For your travels this year, bring along to your hostess' home a pine-scented Aunt Sadie's "Tree-in-a-Can" candle. Or if you're lucky enough to play host, treat yourself to one! It will leave your entire home smelling delicious, even if you don't have a real Christmas tree anywhere in sight.
Lastly, a gift certificate always makes a great gift for your friends and fellow Julep shoppers. It can be used in any location, including our online shop! (*For you last minute shoppers, gift certificates are super easy to purchase online and will be delivered directly to the recipient's email soon after you place your order-- it couldn't be easier!)
For more holiday ideas, stop into your favorite Mint Julep location!

Personalized Necklaces!

A great gift for the ladies on your holiday list, a personalized necklace is a piece of jewelry that will be cherished for years to come. A classic Mint Julep item, the Hum Designs hammered disk necklaces come in any combination of gold and silver and can be stamped with any combination of letters or numbers (prices vary according to material, but range from $72-$90).

The Sara Danielle Designs necklaces are created right around the corner from our Brookline shop by our dear friend, artist Sara Harding. Choose from vermeil ($80 for three charms) or sterling silver ($64 for three charms) and select up to five letters.

Put on your thinking caps and get creative for the holidays... For an old friend choose a hometown area code, for your mother a set of childrens' initials, for yourself, a classic monogram... The possibilities are endless!

Each of these pieces can be easily ordered by calling any Mint Julep location or shopping our online store:

Happy Holiday Shopping to you!

Jackets Galore!

Fall is setting in, and it's starting to get chilly! We at Mint Julep are SO thrilled about the beautiful jackets and coats on our racks, we decided to do a photo shoot!
Look at the buttons! These adorable bow buttons are on the Milly's Versailles Skinny Coat, $608.

Our favorite part of Hazel's French Terry Coat for $110? Spinning!
Tibi's Tab Front Coat in Plum, $528, is such a beautiful, ladylike winter piece...

...but we think the cute ruffle on the back is what makes this one so special!

Beth Bowley's Gold Tweed Coat, $378, with its enameled buttons and wonderful flaired sleeves, is just stunning- and so comfortable!

Here is Odd Molly's Shangri-La Melton Coat in Dark Grey, $536. As usual, Odd Molly adds a little funk and flaire to a winter outfit- and what a great sillhouette!

This one is my favorite- the Bracelet Sleeve Coat by Plenty by Tracy Reese, $326. A beautiful black patterned wool over purple satin. Lovely!

Oh Orla Kiely, we love you!

Here is Orla Kiely's Wool Jersey Jacket, $468. The fun, shiny buttons and purple accents really make this a show stopper!

Another Orla Kiely beauty! Here is the Wool Jersey Coat, $532. Can you say Jackie O?

Nanette Lepore's STUNNING Poison Ring Coat in Midnight, $652, is as classic and feminine as ever!

Beth Bowley's Tweed Jacket in Multi, $398, is so fun it has inspired Hannah to do this. We don't know what it is she is doing, but it looks fun. With great ruffles and enameled buttons, we know this jacket will make someone very happy (and warm!).

This Kensie Big Gingham Jacket in Dark Gray, $144, is a just a great classic jacket. So warm!

We hope you can make it into any of our Mint Julep locations to find the perfect fall or winter coat for you!
