Winter Garden, Plaid, and Just Plain Ugly!

Thank you for the amazing turnout at Juli Mills night! We had a wonderful time and hope you did as well. Lulu has a few fun new things in-store to share.

Winter Hobo wallets have arrived!!! We have the Lauren wallet in the new pattern Winter Garden. It's available in the styles of the Mavis and the Millie as well.

Above is Hobo's new Plaid. It is shown on the adorable Libby! A brushed-metal chain strap and rounded clasp closure lend retro-inspired style to an embossed-leather crossbody bag with a glossy finish.

The plaid is available in the Millie (as shown above), the Lauren, and the Mavis.

We have TWO new members to our Ugly Doll family!

Nandy Bear is so sure of himself! Just look at him! Ok, no wait. Full of himself? Either way, Nandy Bear knows who he is and who he isn’t. He isn’t on his way to do some hard work, but he is on his way to ask you to do him a huge favor. It may involve a big hug, lots of love, and maybe some back up while watching a scary movie. Nandy Bear is quite the motivational speaker, too. Come on! Buy that snacky pie for me! You can do it! Yes you can! Oh no you didn’t.

Why does everybody think it’s OK to bother poor old Cozymonster with their troubles and crazy questions about the meaning of life? That’s what Cozy Monster would like to know. Is there an “I was born to answer all your questions” sign on his forehead? Does he even have a forehead? Cozy Monster would love to have some answers himself! Who invented quizzes?! Who came up with taxes?! Why is it that the better the taste, the worse for you it is?!

The Lulu Low-Down!

How many Lulu fans out there remember making potholders when you were little? Lulu made these all the time! (She’s showing her age now.) And she found that little metal loom for the store! So Let your children experience the classic Metal Pot holder Loom you grew up with. Includes 150 loops and detailed instructions. A great activity for improving fine motor skills. 5 years and upGood things come in mini packages. Measuring just 3.5" x 2" x 2" the Minimergency Survival Kit is more compact than a cupcake. From a teeny-tiny hairspray to single-use dental floss, the survival gurus at Ms. & Mrs. have miniaturized 16 emergency essentials that girls need at their fingertips. Stash this low-cost life-saver in an evening clutch, glove compartment, or carry-on bag. Elle’s must-have!
It’s simple: follow the illustrated prompts and read the English words out loud, and soon you’ll be speaking Spanish, Japanese, or Chinese. This handy, easy-to-read language guide, Slanguage, is easy to carry and gives the basic phrases you need while traveling, asking directions, or ordering food at a restaurant. It also includes phrases for medical or legal emergencies, as well as terminology for hotels, airports, and so on. But most of all, it’s just plain fun!

You may not know Tyvek by name, but if you’ve ever tried to tear open an express mail envelope or remove those “do not remove” tags from your bedding, you’ve discovered just how strong and tear resistant Tyvek is. Mighty Wallets are ingeniously constructed from a single piece of Tyvek folded in a simple pattern, eliminating the need for seams or stitching, which further strengthens the wallet and allows it to expand and grow as it is filled. The smooth material also creates the perfect moisture-resistant surface to protect your valuables from wear and tear. The wallet is environmentally friendly and can actually be recycled.

There are lots of new things coming in at Lulu's and we'll keep you updated, but the best is to come downtown and see for yourself!!!

Great style is in the bag! And in hand...

You know the reusable bags you always forget in your car? Lulu sure does! Well here's your answer. These chic fabric shopping bags fold up small enough to fit into your handbag or pocket—about the size of a candy bar after Lulu's taken a healthy bite. For the environmentally conscious shopper...they're made of durable, waterproof, lightweight polyester, built for toughness and extra strength. Easy to clean if something spills inside. Ideal for sweaty workout clothes. Or tuck your good leather handbag inside if you're caught in an unexpected downpour. Traveling this fall? Bring this along for carrying your loot!

We sell the bag. Not the lady or the shoes. $9.95Come discover Lollia's shea butter handcreme in an intoxicating new scent— "In Love." Described as "a modern interpretation of a sheer romantic floral with delicate infusions of Apple Blossom kissed sweetly by Jasmine, floating upon the breath of the truest Living Rose." Mister Lulu just calls it "Hubba hubba!" Like all of Lollia's deliciously rich handcremes, this contains fast-absorbing macadamia nut & avocado oils to comfort & soothe skin. (When Lulu read these key ingredients, she was tempted to serve a bowl at her last dinner party with some Ritz crackers.) $26.50

We also carry the perfume, bubble bath, and miniatures of the handcreme and perfume for the purse! It's only August but it's not too soon to start thinking of the holidays. These miniatures fly off our shelves - why not stock up now? Perfect for teacher/babysitter/dog-walker gifts and wonderful stocking stuffers.

Load 'Em Up and Move 'Em Out

It's time to send the kids off to school! Now, stop crying and come to Lulu's for shopping therapy. We have some college necessities that you just can't miss.
Does your roommate neglect to do the laundry? Light one of these and fill your room with a nicer smell for a change. The Gardenia Colonia Voluspa candle will quickly fill your room and mask the smell of ramen noodles and dirty socks.

Getting to class a little late? Maybe you should invest in a Tokyo Bay watch. It helps you run faster. Okay, maybe not, but it does tell time in the hippest way possible.

Remember when you would shed tears over a scrape? Now you’ll be crying if you don’t get to use one of these fun Bacon Strip Bandages! Send your college student back to school with the most greasy..uhh..I mean stylish boo-boos on campus.

Moleskine is the heir and successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries, maybe one of these beautiful, leather notebooks will raise your GPA! ..........................................................................................................................................................................................
Throw a couple of these in a care package and you might just be the coolest parent on campus.

You otter get a new wallet (and an Irish guest!)

Open your purse, dump out your beach bag, dig through the bottom of your backpack. See that tired crumpled lump with the snap that no longer closes? That's your wallet. Does it make you smile every time you use it? Or is it logo-bestooned and so precious you're afraid to use it?

Whale, you better head over to Lulu's!

We just got in a boatload of Bungalow 360 wallets, in the most adorable and stylish prints. These Earth-friendly 100% natural cotton canvas wallets are as hard-working as they are cute. Designed to hold your bills, coins and credit cards, it's the perfect wallet for summertime. Take it to the beach, take it to the golf course, take it to LULU'S! Hurry up, y'all, the last bunch of these flew outta here faster than ice cream sundae cones at Southern Sweets on an August afternoon!

Last month, a very special visitor dropped by Lulu's. It's Clive, a Goldendoodle from Dublin, Ireland who works as an Autism Assistance Dog for an 11-year old boy named Murray. Last winter, Murray's family saw photos of beautiful Beaufort on our pal Petey's blog which lead to a summer vacation on Hilton Head. And of course, no trip to Beaufort is complete without a stop at Lulu Burgess!

Being European, Clive greeted me with a kiss on each cheek. He was a perfect gentleman.

He then came behind the counter to show us the difference between Euros and U.S. Dollars.

He's as squishy and huggable as one of our Jellycat Stuffed Toys. As I hugged him, I kept expecting to find a tag!

As the dog days of summer roll on, feel free to bring your (well-behaved) pooch into Lulu's for a cool drink and a biscuit. You never know, he or she may be a real bargain hound!

Polish, Pearls and Peepees!

Hi Lulu fans,

We just got in the very cool, hip, British nail polish line called Butter London. And according to my trends and forecasting expert, Jane, a lot of fashion designers are now using Butter colors on the runways in New York City (and she should know, she lives there)... If you go to our Facebook page, Jane will tell you about the hottest colors and how to wear them!

We've just set our next Juli Mills night, for Tuesday, September 14th from 5:00- 8:00 pm. Come check out all of Juli's fall collection. We can't wait!!!! Bring a friend and have a glass of wine.

Among our most recent arrivals is Jellycat, our favorite stuffed animal line from London. You should see all of their new "Cordy Roys" (which really stands for corduroy, the fabric they're made out of). We got another shipment of Gurgle Pots (you know, the pitchers that gurgle after you pour) because we sold out of the first order. AND Pee-pee Teepees (for the sprinkling wee-wees) which we just can't keep in!! They sell as fast as we get them in. In short, the fall goodies are flying in and filling up the store with new surprises everday!

Doggie Caps and Tree-Scented Candles

Hi there Lulu fans,

Here's a picture of new stuff at Lulu's! If you go to our Facebook business page you can see all of the pictures. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lulu-Burgess/204281600594
Ok, ok, I know it's early but we got in our Christmas Tree Candle in a Can.....this candle always sells out SO FAST I thought I'd give you a little heads up. It smells EXACTLY like a Christmas tree. You feel like you're standing in the forest and that Santa Claus is on his way! They'll be gone by mid to end of October. I promise.
