Are you ready for some football?

Can you believe it's officially football season? This year has really flown by! I am so ready for Clemson gamedays and Fall weather...this is absolutely my favorite time of year.

Clemson vs. PC

Who's going to the game? If it's your first time at a Clemson home football game, check out this nifty, online guide, "The Tiger Fan's Guide to Clemson Football Game Days", created by IPTAY and the Clemson Athletic Department. It has useful tips even for experienced Clemson fans. Also make sure you read up on some new Death Valley policies for game days. No backpacks folks.

If you make it into Clemson early on Friday, make sure you check out the First Friday Parade - starts at 6pm. The theme this year is, "History WILL Repeat Itself".

Clemson vs. PC

Looks like the weather will be nice for the weekend, but hot (as it usually is the first game). I guess we should be glad it's not a Noon game, but 3:30 PM games can be just as hot. I need to remember to get batteries for my gameday lap fan (best purchase ever!). :) And pack sunscreen!

And remember that if you are drinking 'adult' beverages on Saturday, make sure you drink plenty of water too...your body will thank you on Sunday.


Besides tailgating on Clemson gamedays, we also love seeing everyone's gameday fashion! We try to capture as many photos of you in your gameday best as we can, so don't be surprised if someone approaches you and wants to take your picture for :)

Speaking of photos - we always try to take as many photos around Clemson on gameday as we can, but it's hard to get everywhere, so we're looking for volunteers again this year to help capture Clemson's gamedays. All we ask is that you take at least 75 unique photos throughout the day (tailgating fun, gameday outfits, inside the stadium, etc.) and then email them to us on Sunday by midnight EST. All volunteer photographers get a $25 gift certificate to a sponsor of their choice (businesses on the right side of this blog -->). If you're interested, send us an email (!

Clemson vs. PC

Don't forget to wear orange on Friday for Solid Orange Fridays! Why not wear your Clemson Girl t-shirt? I'm sure it's totally work appropriate, right? :)

And on a completely unrelated note - we must take care of some unfinished business from last week. We never heard from the winner of The Sassy Palmetto giveaway, so we drew a new winner. Congrats to Lauren B. from Summerville, SC! Lauren, please email us to claim your tiger paw sculpture prize ( You have until Thursday at Noon EST!

See everyone at the game this weekend! Who's ready for another great season!?! Go Tigers!!

Meet The Sassy Palmetto (+ a giveaway)

We are super excited to post yet another amazing giveaway today on the blog – today’s giveaway is from The Sassy Palmetto, a family owned store based out of South Carolina, that sells a variety of gifts and accessories perfect for Clemson fans.

Owner Jennifer has always been super crafty, and just a few years ago she started traveling to local craft shows to sell her handmade products. Soon a few local boutiques were interested in her work and started selling her items. As demand for her items grew, Jennifer decided to open her own online specialty shop in 2010 to be able to offer her products at great prices to anyone across the country.

The Sassy Palmetto sells a variety of fun gifts with new products added almost daily. Follow The Sassy Palmetto on Facebook so you can get a sneak peek at their new products as they come in.

Many of The Sassy Palmetto’s products are handmade, so they can personalize just about anything – just ask!

Here is just a fun sampling of some of their products… check out this gorgeous Tillman Hall plate (first in a series), it would make lovely home d├ęcor or maybe to hold something yummy at your next football party. And speaking of tailgating, I think this Clemson pilsner glass would be a perfect tailgating accessory for your tailgating beverage.

Or keep your tailgating beverages cool and accessible in this gorgeous, silver beverage tub… I would love to have this for a football party at my house for one of the away games. I love that it has big handles on the sides so you can easily carry it to sit on the coffee table for easy accessibility to those frosty brews. :)

And the Sassy Palmetto has the cutest gameday accessories for your little Tiger fans – how adorable is this Tiger onesie? Sooo cute! And I think any little Clemson Girl would be too precious for words in this orange & purple tutu with matching flip flops! Do these come in adult sizes? ;)

And one of The Sassy Palmetto products that they are most well known for are their steel sculptures. They are handmade, precision cut with a high-quality, powder coat finish. Check out some of the different items below…

Clemson Gameday Fall Staple

Take a break from the 90+ degree weather and let's think about cool breezes and Fall (a.k.a. football) weather!

Disclaimer: I was anti-jegging for as long as I can remember when the trend first hit stores...but last Fall, after actually trying a pair on, I never looked back.

Leggings that look like pants sounds like a really silly idea, but they are more comfortable than you can imagine, fit great (sometimes you need to size up to get the right fit!), and are super stylish paired in the Fall with tunic sweaters and knee high boots!

Anthropologie** just posted these cute chord-style leggings in a dark orange. These will be a must-have on my Clemson gameday fashion wish list - perfect with a chunky, white sweater and knee high brown boots!

Pilcro Cord Leggings - Anthropologie, $88
**Through September 30th, Anthropologie is offering FREE shipping and FREE returns for online orders!

What do you think? Have you tried 'jeggings' yet?
