 Gift an Original Piece of Art!


Augusta Wilson • Artist • Augusta Wilson Studio

I am interested in art that is both accessible and thought provoking. I want to bridge the gap between paintings that belong in MOMA and paintings that match your sofa. I believe you can have the best of both worlds.

Elevated Ladies Loungewear and Pajamas

Longtime friends, Cassandra and Anne Read founded LAKE in 2013 and launched their first collection in 2014. They saw a need for loungewear that was both comfortable and stylish, pajamas you would feel excited about putting on before bed. The two share a passion for surrounding themselves with things they love and direct this energy into the products they create.

SuthinGirl dreams of lounging fireside on Christmas morning, cup of coffee in hand, relaxed and happy in her new LAKE pajamas. I’m thinking it’ll be the ‘Short-Long’ set in Melon Reverse for me. (Somebody tell Santa!)

Knitted of sumptuous Peruvian Pima cotton, LAKE is exactly what you want in your pajamas: luxurious softness with the just the right amount of stretch.

LAKE Short-Long Set $98

Choose Melon Reverse or Marine Stripe

LAKE Long-Long Set $108

Choose Grass Stripe or Sky Reverse

Order by December 16th to guarantee Christmas delivery!

Give the Gift of Forward Fashion!

Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Vara’ Bow Bracelet $103.20

I LOVE this bracelet! It’s at once classic and a touch whimsical. And that Ferragamo bow is eponymous with high fashion. No offense to Tory Burch, but SuthinGirl would much rather step apart from the crowd and wear this.

Rose Quartz is one of the Top 2 Colors of the Year chosen by the Pantone Color Institute!


The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring 2016 collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.

Like a serene sunset, flushed cheek or budding flower, Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during the busy but lighthearted spring and summer months.


Give a Haute Gift for their Handbag!

Gucci Swing Leather Card Case $180

Choose from Bright Pink (which looks like Rose Quartz, one of Pantone Color Insitute’s Top 2 Colors of 2016!), Fuchsia, Black, Red

Every girl needs a card case!! So why not Gucci?! This is a terrific gift to give a girl who loves her designer goodies. It’s practical and timeless, and she will use it every day and be reminded of your amazing generosity and style!

It fits exactly what you need and keeps you from accumulating too much junk! I keep my driver’s license, debit card, one credit card, health insurance card, a couple of SuthinGirl business cards and a $20 bill inside of mine.

And it’s sooooo much nicer than carrying a clunky wallet around!! It makes it simple to change handbags at a moment’s notice.

Give the Gift of Savvy Travel!


Jen Rubio & Steph Korey • Co-Founders • Away
