Visit Gameday Boutique online and shop for orange and purple – get 10% off of your order!

Have you heard of Gameday Boutique? It’s an ingenious Web site that sells gameday dresses, tops, skirts, and a ton of accessories by color – 14 different colors to be exact! So finding the perfect purple or orange gameday outfit is as easy as clicking on the item category, and then the color. Not only can you get an outfit for the Clemson games, but if you frequent other sporting events for high school teams, professional teams, or live in a house divided and attend other collegiate games, you can find the perfect outfit on Gameday Boutique.

Gameday Boutique was created by Tempie Largon and Frances More, both Charlotte natives who attended Myers Park High School and then UNC Chapel Hill. While attending sporting events at Kenan Stadium, the Dean Dome, the Bobcats Arena, Bank of America Stadium, and Lowes Motor Speedway, they noticed that many women, including themselves, were in desperate need of fashionable clothing in the right color for their team.…hence the idea and creation of Gameday Boutique.

Here’s a preview of some of the outfits they carry…in our favorite colors… orange and purple! (Click on the images to see a larger view)

Dresses – Here are some of the orange and purple dresses that Gameday Boutique sells. These dresses are so pretty. The first three would be great in October, at a Clemson game, paired with a nice cardigan or jacket and a pair of boots. The orange tunic dress would be super cute paired with brown tights or leggings and a brown belt. Love these! What would you pair these dresses with?

Gameday Tops – And for you more casual Clemson Girls, these tops would be great paired with your favorite pair of jeans! I love, love the purple top with the ruffle at the top – you can wear it on the shoulders or off the shoulders. It’s so pretty and feminine, and would be so cute with jeans.

Gameday accessories – Gameday Boutique has a great selection of gameday jewelry – how unique is the tiger bracelet below with the tiger heads – it looks very expensive, but it’s only $32! They also carry really great orange and purple scarves – they are nice and thick so you’ll be warm and cozy come November – and stylish!

This is just a sample of all of the great gameday attire and accessories Gameday Boutique has to offer – get your Wake Forest gameday outfit and your LBD (little black dress) in one purchase… all from the convenience of home. Gameday Boutique is a genius idea – and will make shopping for gameday outfits so effortless. And it's all very affordable – everything is under $175.

09.26.09 - Clemson vs. TCU - Gameday photos and outfits

Well, the Tigers couldn't pull off the W this weekend - but they still held ranked #15 TCU team to only 14 points compared to our 10. The gameday started out great - overcast, a little chilly, and no rain. The entire first half was rainless. And then the monsoon came...right at the end of half time. And it wasn't just was POURING rain. So I wasn't able to capture too many photos of gameday outfits - so enjoy the photos I was able to get. Hopefully the Wake Forest game will be dry!

Caroline's Tiger Pause: Clemson vs. TCU

I am looking forward to another home game in Tiger Town Clemson Girls! This is a huge out of conference match up against #15 TCU. I know many fans are surprised that this game is not going to be televised, but the primary reason is TCU has no television following at all. This is without a doubt one of the most difficult games remaining on our schedule. TCU has no weaknesses, they are solid on offense, defense, and special teams, they are well coached, and they have the single best defensive player we will see playing against us in Death Valley this year in All American Jerry Hughes. Hughes led the nation last year in sacks with 15, forced 6 fumbles, and tallied 2 interceptions. He has already accumulated 4 and a half sacks in just 2 games this year. Hughes is not the only thing TCU has going for them, but he is the major reason I worry about us pulling off a win today.

Hughes would have been a lot to handle regardless, but with Chris Hairston injured the situation becomes much more critical. In many ways he is our most important player because he is the best offensive tackle we have and there is not great depth behind him. Thankfully it was an MCL sprain and not an MCL tear. He could see limited action today, but the job of containing Hughes will largely go to Cory Lambert. I am really hoping this senior steps up tomorrow and has the game of his life. No one, even Hairston, can fully contain Hughes, so expect to see him disrupting our offense all day.

Last week the defense was a joy to behold. To hold BC to 55 yards of total offense was spectacular to say the least. After watching them hold BC to -2 yards in the half I was beginning to wonder if Boston College would get anything on us. I really believe our defense would have held them to even less yardage if not for the lightening delays. I can not begin to describe what a pleasure it was to see a nasty D back in Tiger Town. After seeing Kevin Steele's defense really unveiled I am convinced he is a genius. I loved the “Bamberg” formation, which at times positioned Sapp and Bowers as Linebackers. And how about that tackling? We were as intimidating and ferocious of a defense as I have seen in years. And it was nice to see us creating more turnovers—currently Clemson is 2nd in the nation with 8 interceptions (McDaniel has 4). We are also pressuring the QB like crazy, we have already recorded 7 sacks in 3 games, halfway to last year's season total! Our defense is going to have to continue to play at this high of a level to beat TCU.

TCU has a solid defense as well. They are one of the top rushing defenses in the country and Spiller and company are going to have to find a way to run the ball effectively against them. Luckily Spiller is proving to be a tough runner as well as an elusive one and Ellington is light years better than I thought he would be at this point in his career. TCU also has a 3 year starter at Quarterback, make no mistake this will absolutely be the best QB we have faced all year. They are also 15th nationally in rushing offense. Most importantly TCU is well coached. This is not a team that will beat themselves-they do not have a lot of turnovers or penalties. TCU does not lose games where the opposing team scores 17 points or less, and that is our magic number. If we can claw our way to that against a terrific defense game over we win. I always felt completely confident about this game before the injury to Hairston; make no mistake, that was a huge blow. He was without a doubt our best hope of handling Hughes. Winning this game becomes even more difficult without Chris at full speed.

Visit blake & brady this weekend to get your next Clemson gameday outfit – get 10% off!

I first introduced you to blake & brady boutique back in August and I’ve gotten a ton of e-mails and comments from readers about how much they love the gameday outfits blake & brady sells. Well, I’m really excited to have the opportunity to share with you pictures of new orange and purple outfits the boutique has just gotten in! The boutique is located conveniently in downtown Anderson (click here for a map), but if you can’t make it to the store – anything you see in this post they can ship to you – all you have to do is call (864-965-9120) or send them an email to

New Gameday Dresses – I really love these new dresses from blake & brady. I used to be against having any other color in your gameday outfit that wasn’t purple, orange or white. I’ve changed my tune lately though..I’m starting to become a believer that if the outfit has enough orange or purple in it, and you dress it up with the right orange or purple jewelry, then it becomes a really cute (and unique) gameday outfit. The second dress, however, couldn’t be more perfect for a Clemson game – especially for this weekend’s game. And I love the details on the orange dresses. Any of the dresses could be paired with a jean jacket or sweater and knee high boots – so you can still wear them for the October games.

New Gameday Tops and Sweaters – blake & brady has also gotten in a bunch of new tops and sweaters that would be perfect for gamedays – especially paired with jeans and cute jewelry! I love the purple sweater with the ruffle on the front! That would be so cute for one of the October home games paired with a jean skirt and tan, crochet knee high boots or the Ugg style boots! I love fall football weather – but you have to dress in layers because it will be warm sitting in the stadium during the day, but cool in the morning or at night at your tailgate – so these sleeveless tops are perfect to go with your favorite pair of jeans and a cardigan or jacket.

New Gameday Wraps & Shrugs – So, I just mentioned that it’s important to dress in layers for the October games – well…these new shrugs and wraps would be just the item to help you do that. Easy to wear, and when it gets warm in the afternoons, fold these up and easily fit them in your purse. I also love the detail you can add to any outfit with this purple vest – check out the detailed back! So unique!

Orange Boots! - What do you think about these orange boots! I'm in love! These would be so cute on top of a pair of skinny blue jeans for the colder gamedays! And the heels are you're not walking around in heels all day, but you still get the illusion and the height. I haven't seen these anywhere else....

And if you are sometimes fashion challenged (like me!), blake & brady have expert staff who will assist you while you’re shopping and help you put together a complete outfit that flatters your body so you can be comfortable and confident walking around Clemson on gamedays. Blake & brady also offers additional services like personal shopping, gift wrapping, and special orders.

I love these new outfits from blake & brady. Become a fan of their Facebook page, and you can continually stay up to date on any new items that come in or any specials or sales they may have. Don’t forget you can order anything from their store by simply giving them a call (864-965-9120).

Speaking of specials…. SPECIAL OFFER FOR CLEMSON GIRL READERS: Blake & brady is still offering 10% off of your first order if you mention you found them through Clemson Girl! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity while it lasts! Thanks blake & brady!
