It's raining, it's pouring...

So today's rain got me thinking about how it rained almost every Clemson home football game this year...and not just drizzled... it poured!

I remember how I was very jealous of all of the Clemson Girls who had prepared and had on cute orange or purple rain boots and cute rain jackets. So I scoured the Web... I think this year I plan to be prepared for the worst!

Love all of these! What do you usually wear on rainy football gamedays? And don't worry if your answer is an orange poncho...sometimes those keep you the driest!

Please, please do not let it rain for the Orange and White game (April 10th - April showers???)... pretty please??

Orange you glad for polka dots?

Check out this lovely dress shared with us by a reader and fellow Clemson alum, Mary. This dress would be perfect for a warm September game.

Check out this dress I just saw at Anthropologie.com. The "Optimist"

So cute...white with orange polka dots! And switch out the scarf for a orange and/or purple one and you're ready to cheer on the Tigers! Perfect for the first hot-weather football games, and as it gets cooler, just slip on a white cardigan for cute retro-chic.

Savannah, GA
Clemson Alumni '02, Communication Studies

This purple cardigan from the Gap is pretty - and I like the striped detail. I think it would compliment the polka dots. It's also available in white and tomato (which looks orange).

Instead of the scarf, wrap a skinny belt in orange or purple like this one from the Gap - only $20 and available in purple or orange - around the sweater and dress - or just the dress.

Finish it off with flip-flops and you're gameday outfit complete.

Thanks Mary for sharing! If you see something we should feature on this blog, please email us at clemsongirlblog@gmail.com.

Love is in the air…for semi-formal dresses!

Now that Valentine’s Day…the day of love…is quickly approaching, a lot of Clemson sororities are planning their formals and semi-formals. So if you’re a sorority girl, you are probably on the lookout for the perfect dress – something gorgeous with a hint of sexiness. You also want a unique dress – you don’t want to have the same dress as everyone else.

You may also be on the lookout for that perfect dress for Valentine’s Day – whether you have a romantic date planned, or a fun girls’ night out.

Regardless of the occasion, where else would you find the perfect formal, semi-formal, or Valentine’s dress but at McAuley’s Unique Boutique in Anderson? They have an amazing selection of semi-formal dresses, so you can find the right one to make you look like you just stepped off of the red carpet. Not sure what type of dress you’ll need for your event? Don’t worry – the style savvy staff at McAuley’s will help you find the perfect dress, with the perfect fit, that’s perfect for your event…did I mention perfect? :)

Stop by McAuley’s Unique Boutique (click here for a map) now through Valentine’s Day, and you get to draw a Valentine’s Day goody bag with each purchase. The bags contains yummy candy and a special coupon surprise – you can get anywhere from 5% to 25% off! Plus, all purchases over $150 get a free McAuley’s Unique Boutique tote bag.

McAuley’s Unique Boutique is also holding a contest on their Facebook page – all you have to do is comment on their wall, comment on a photo, or post a photo of yourself wearing a McAuley’s Unique Boutique outfit and you’re automatically entered to win a $175 gift certificate. What a great prize for something so easy! The drawing will be held February 26th, so ladies..start your comments!

Are you a fashion maven? McAuley’s Unique Boutique is looking to hire new, style savvy sales associates for their boutique. They are also looking for new models. If you are interested in working at the boutique or modeling, you can apply online through their Web site. Information is posted on the home page.

And don’t forget that you can stay on top of McAuley’s Unique Boutique new arrivals, and be notified of special discounts and deals, by signing up for their new mobile text alert program. All you have to do to sign up is text on your mobile phone McAuleysBoutique (all as one word without the apostrophe) to 74679 (as the phone number). Or you can go to simry.com to sign up. McAuley’s is also giving $10 gift certificates to anyone who brings in their phone and shows the confirmation text you receive after signing up.

I am so loving all of these dresses… I really wish McAuley’s Unique Boutique had been around when I was at Clemson – I always had the hardest time finding the perfect semi-formal dresses for my sorority events. Don’t forget that you can also shop McAuley’s Unique Boutique online, so if you don’t live in the upstate, you can still shop these amazing dresses. P.S. Use coupon code WINTER15 and get 15% off of your online order (sale items excluded)!!

This next dress is one of my favorites. I think it would be a great dress for a sorority semi-formal. You could also rock this dress for a formal - you’ll stand out from all the floor length gowns in this one.

I think a dress can say a lot about the girl wearing it. What do you think? What type of dress are you?? Are you more fun and flirty like a light colored Spring dress?

Or are you classic and simple like a little black dress, but with a hint of flair…

Or are you the girl that stands out in the crowd, confident, and all out glam… “Look at me!”

I think I may be a little of each…depending on my mood. What about you? Comment on this blog post and share which of these dresses most represents your personality and style. I’d love to hear from you…

Believe it or not, this is just a small sample of the semi-formal dresses McAuley’s Unique Boutique carries. There are so many more! Make sure you visit the boutique or browse online and see them all. Any of these dresses will make you look and feel amazing, not to mention it will knock the breath out of your date as soon as he gets a look at you!
