Have you noticed the buzz about Turkey lately? Town and Country’s April issue has a great article titled, “Istanbul: An insider’s Guide”. Then, last weekend’s addition of USA TODAY had an interview with Rick Steves, known for his guidebooks about European travel. Here is what he had to say about Turkey (click here for full interview)
Q:What’s the next hot destination for Americans traveling to Europe?
A: Turkey may not get into the European Union, but as far as travelers are concerned, it’s as good as there. Turkey is exotic, unpredictable, fun-loving, cheap, tasty, filled with history and friendly. For a generation, many Americans have been afraid. … As Midnight Express images fade and as Americans learn to celebrate rather than fear the diversity on this planet, Turkey is the best deal going in Europe.
You can embrace the Turkish Trend by heading to Cindi Earl this Thursday night from 5 – 8PM for wine, hors d’oeuvres and conversation in celebration of the Atelier Minyon collection – straight from Turkey. This night’s collection, a larger display of Atelier Minyon than what Cindi normally has in store, is full of beautiful and intricate designs which can be yours for less than a plane ticket on Turkish Airlines.
I stopped by Cindi Earl to see what to expect and frankly, I was blown away as I always am when I walk in this locally owned jewelry store. This collection is truly bold and beautiful. For better pictures than the ones I took here, be sure to check out the link at http://atelierminyon.com
As an aside, if you haven’t been into Cindi Earl lately, a familiar face has been added behind the counter Mon-Fri. It’s Mary Pillow Thompson, previous owner of Razz Kirk shoes. With the disarmingly fun and sweet personalities of both Cindi and Mary Pillow, you will beg your watch to stop ticking so you can just linger.
Further proof that the Atelier Minyon collection rocks:
Cindi Earl offers gorgeous hand crafted jewelry at different price points fitting most wants and indulgences. There were simply SO MANY BEAUTIES that had my eye. Treat yourself with a visit on Thursday. Grab some wine and hors d’oeuvres and then you can head to Sperry’s for dinner. Sounds like the perfect date night to me. Mother’s Day is coming all you moms out there. Use this opportunity to make some hints!
With the purchase of any Atelier Minyon Jewelry on Thursday night, you will receive a complimentary ticket to Nicole Miller’s presentation benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Tennessee Chapter on April 27th from 7:30 – 10PM at the Bridgestone Arena in the Patron Platinum club. See www.fashionforcff.org for more information.
Cindi Earl is located at 5101 Harding Road, Nashville, 37205. 615-353-1823
