Entourage Clothing & Gifts Clemson gameday dress giveaway!

If you're an avid reader of this blog, then you have probably heard the exciting news about Entourage Clothing & Gifts - a brand new boutique opening in downtown Clemson (next to Little Caesars) next Friday, July 8th.

Check out the amazing space they'll be filling to the brim with gorgeous (but totally affordable) women's apparel, shoes, handbags, jewelry and so much more.

Love the lighting!
It's hard to decide what we like more about Entourage -- the fact that they have a great selection of the latest trends (updating daily!) OR the fact that all dresses are under $42, all earrings are under $10, and all necklaces under $18.

And of course Entourage Clothing & Gifts will be carrying a big selection of orange and purple gameday attire -- including their own exclusive line.

Are you following Entourage Clothing & Gifts on Facebook yet? I hope you are, because they are already posting many new arrivals that you can go ahead and shop through their Facebook page or through their website. I'm loving these nautical, Fourth of July inspired looks!

Wedding Wednesday - A true Clemson love story

Melissa and her husband, Eric, are both Clemson alums and die-hard Tiger fans! So from the moment she said "Yes!", the location and theme of their special day was a no-brainer.

Photos are by Allison Elizabeth Photography & Design - an Upstate South Carolina photographer.

Eric and Melissa met at the Esso Club in January of 2009, and Clemson has been a huge part of their relationship ever since. The couple chose to honor their "orange blood" during their engagement session with pictures in Death Valley, outside Tillman Hall, and in the parking lot of the Esso where they first met.


The couple got married on May 28, 2011 at Clemson United Methodist Church. Melissa chose dark purple for her bridesmaids' dresses and various shades of purple with hints of orange for the flowers.


The reception took place at the Owen Pavilion, behind the James F. Martin Inn. Clemson touches throughout the reception included the bridal portrait which was taken at Clemson's very own Fort Hill, a special appearance by the Clemson Tiger, Clemson tiger paws engraved on the couple's toasting glasses, and orange koozies as wedding favors.


It was a true Clemson ending to a true Clemson love story!


We'd like to give a big thanks to Melissa for contacting us and sharing her amazing Clemson wedding with us - she pretty much wrote this post!

And sadly today is the last Wedding Wednesday post for 2011 - we hope you enjoyed all of the posts and have gotten lots of fun Clemson-themed ideas for your special day.

Wedding Wednesday: Real Clemson Girl Wedding

Two months ago when we put out the call for Clemson Girl weddings, one of the first Clemson Girls to respond was reader Susan Clapp.

Susan and her husband are both Clemson alums, so even though they were married in Charlottesville, VA, it was important for them to make Clemson a part of their special day.

Photos are by Jessica Rayburn photography - an Atlanta based photographer.

We wish we had been invited to the wedding after seeing these photos - everyone looks like they are having an amazing time!

Orange and purple flower girl dresses! So cute!
The couple got married on Oct 24, 2009 -- the day Clemson beat Miami in OT when Miami was ranked no 8.  This is a picture of guests watching the game on a big projector they put up at the reception. I love this idea - if you know there's a big game going on the same time as your reception -- embrace it! This way people aren't sneaking out to their cars to listen to the game. Make it part of the celebration!
Celebrating the big Clemson win!
More celebration!

Love, love, love this photo! Every Clemson couple MUST get this photo on their wedding day...
frame worthy! :)
 Thanks Susan for sharing these great photos with us!

Summer is here!

Today is the first day of summer... even though it has 'felt' like summer here in the South since May! How will you be keeping cool this summer?

Entourage Clothing & Gifts – New Boutique in Clemson

Happy Tuesday ladies!

We are excited to introduce you to our newest sponsor – Entourage Clothing & Gifts – a brand new boutique opening up in downtown Clemson next month (July 8th to be exact). The boutique offers adorable, trendy styles at super, affordable prices.

Entourage actually started in Athens, GA – the owners realized that Georgia girls didn’t have a store to shop at for cute clothes within their budgets. They realized that not only did Georgia girls need affordable clothes, but needed to get more for their money – not just one dress.

Entourage in Athens was so successful, that they decided to expand to Clemson and provide the same great, affordable styles for Clemson Girls! All dresses are under $42, earrings under $10, and necklaces under $18. The boutique also carries the newest styles in shoes, belts, and purses. They are consistently updating with new styles – almost daily!

The boutique will also be specializing in Clemson gameday outfits! They are even making their own line exclusive to Clemson. So make sure you add Entourage Clothing & Gifts to your orange and purple shopping stops. We love the orange and purple styles they have already posted, and we cannot wait until they open so we can see more!

Entourage Clothing & Gifts will be conveniently located in Clemson Centre downtown, next to the Little Caesars. The grand opening is next month, but you can already follow them on Facebook and get a sneak peek at the amazing styles they will be carrying and start your wish list now. You can also visit them online and start shopping right away!

Entourage Clemson gameday dress giveaway!
Giveaway alert!! Entourage Clothing & Gifts wants to give one of our Clemson Girl readers their very own Clemson gameday dress before the boutique even opens. One lucky lady can win this cute orange Tinley dress in a size of her choice – a $42 value!
