Welcome, Fall!! We’re thrilled you’re here! And we’re also thrilled to get out into the crisp autumnal air and shop ’til we drop. Whether shopping for a cause, to decorate your home for the season or simply to give your wardrobe a seasonal update, here are some of our favorite FINDS from around the South this month. Enjoy!
BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
October has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness. While we encourage all women to get their mammograms, we also encourage the support of organizations that help in the fight to end breast cancer. One great source to find some great items for a great cause is Southern Tide where you can shop a variety of stylish pink products and, for the month of October, 10% of all sales go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Click here to shop for the cause.

Judith Bright rings
These petite rock rings from Judith Bright are just too much fun! Choose your favorite colors and pair them with a bevy of like-colored bracelets for a colorful and chic look. Find them for $68 each at Judith Bright, with locations in Nashville, Birmingham and Atlanta — or you can order online.
You know it’s fall when you start seeing the plaid scarves coming out. The ones at Hallmark USA Oxmoor in Louisville, Kentucky, are so soft and come in a variety of great color combinations to brighten up your fall wardrobe. Instead of brown, dark green or black, think yellow, teal and orange. Plus, they can be worn so many ways that you will find yourself wearing it all the time. These are sold for $30 and can be purchased in-store or online — and shipping is free.
Wine and burgundy are some of our favorite fall colors. Snag this top from SOCA in an autumnal hue to get your closet ready for the season. Versatility is the secret to fall fashion – layering is a must, as are pieces that can be formal and fun enough for a night out yet casual enough for an afternoon football game. We found this fabulous fall staple for $76.50 at SOCA, with locations in Nashville, Tennessee; Birmingham, Alabama; and Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
These popular wraps sell quickly and come in three colors: muted gold, silver and black. All have a hint of shine to them and are lightweight with buttons on the side to fasten it. This is a great wrap for a dressy outfit or even over jeans. We found this at Apricot Lane Boutique in Louisville, Kentucky, for $49. Click here to find the Apricot Lane location nearest you.
Abandon the traditional black frames for these green ones and stay inline with the color trend. These lightweight frames are comfortable and stylish — the perfect combination.
