For mid August, we’ve sure had some football-like weather at night. Does this mean an early fall? I did hear someone say that for September we should expect a polar vortex to move through. What? Are you kidding me? Those words are supposed to be used only for the middle of winter! I sort of laughed, but was inwardly thinking, “Oh my gosh, are we going to have to wear winter coats to the football games in September already?”

Speaking of coats, we’ve displayed several racks of really nice warm and cozy-looking coats. There’s all sizes, so be sure to stop in and browse the racks! Come often, because the selection and the size you might be looking for changes often. If you’re going through your closets and weeding out what’s been outgrown, we can certainly use your gently worn items!

You know, with the start of school and the football games comes homecoming events. If you’re already thinking about finding that special dress, stop in and ask to see what we’ve got. For this special time of the year, and to accommodate our shoppers, we may just pull from our formal/bridal and special occasion collection dresses that are homecoming appropriate and provide a dedicated rack for those types of dresses. If you’re shopping early and they’re not out yet, be sure to ask to see them.

Of course, we’ve got Browns, Bengals, Ohio State, that team up North and lots of other spirit apparel, as well as our area schools’ spirit wear to support your favorite teams this season. You can even get your little cheerleader all decked out in a cute little skirt, top and pom poms. Come in and see what we’ve got.
