Sita Rupe - Local Artist

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

I just finished an installation of our local resident Sita Rupe's artwork, and I had to share...cuz it's really whimsical, colorful & cheerful. Sita takes wood panels, found paper & creates a masterpiece everytime.

And really, her work is perfect for any room in your home. A tiny piece for the bathroom or entry way, several pieces grouped together for your bedroom or living room...and most definitely a few pieces for the kid's room. They are a great gift, especially as we approach the holiday season. I just sold one today as a wedding gift. Prices range from $20 - $185 a piece. And besides, I know you all want to support those local artists!!! So all you locals, come check it out.

The Perfect Black Dress...

Saturday, October 10, 2009
The perfect black dress that you’ve been looking for your entire life awaits you at Lavish. Ooohhh you want to know the designer??? I wanted to keep this a secret but Chronicle is running an article this week in the style section featuring this local designer- so I may as well spill it. OK OK… It’s She-Bible!!!!

She-Bible has managed to design a dress that is flattering, stylish and versatile- perhaps the three best things a dress can be all at once. “The Classic” Black dress is simply a necessity in any woman’s closet.

Don’t worry, She-Bible doesn’t stop there- they have an entire collection of city-chic duds including uber cozy sweatshirts, flirty dresses and tops. Take a look of what’s to come in November!


Happy Halloween!! (almost!)

Wednesday, October 7, 2009
Halloween comes but once a year, so I get antsy the second October 1st hits! You could feel the abrupt end of our summer as the brisk wind rolled through the city last week (followed by Spirit stores popping up on every corner). At last- Halloween is here!!!

Hello Lucky Halloween Cards- Go ahead...send Mom or Grams a special letterpress note reminiscing on all the Halloween memories. "Dear Mom, Thanks for dressing me up as a pink bunny three years in a row!!!"

New at Lavish: Halloween Costumes for your little ones!

September Wrap Up!

Friday, October 2, 2009
Yes I know September has come and gone, but I couldn't leave you guys without an update.


Earlier in the month I headed to Las Vegas for the Women’s trade shows featuring Spring Clothing and Accessories. This coming Spring is full of surprises! -new styles, bright colors, super casual cuts mixed with super feminine prints. It seems that the economy has pushed designers to work harder than ever.

Here's what I walked into on the first day...

Oh and the most exciting news from the trip is... were getting in ORLA KIELY CLOTHING!!!

Here's a tiny sneak peak of whats to come. Just walking into the Orla Kiely booth got me all giddy.Now if only they were serving Tomato Salad at the Orla Kiely booth I would be in my all time heaven. (see previous blog)

And a look at some cute pieces were getting in from Jenny Han...

Some great basics from LaMade to add to your spring wardrobe

And no, I didn't forget that we still need sweaters in San Francisco during the Spring.

It's funny how so many people don't realize that San Francisco doesn't hold up to the Sunny California reputation. I found myself assuring people that we sell a ton of sweaters during the Spring.

One last stop before I departed the city of Sparkle and tacky. ;) A drink with my girls from Manhattan Beach!! They happened to be in town for the show as well, so we got to meet up and have a little fun.


PARK(ing) Day is a one-day, global event centered in San Francisco where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into public parks. Hayes Valley was no exception.

Zonal down the street went full out. I didn't exactly get the memo till the day of so Lavish was park-less.
