It’s 2017, and we couldn’t possibly think this year was any more gorgeous. How could it not be? Last year was our biggest and best year ever here at The Shoppe. The Emily McCarthy brand reached new heights and expanded to new countries. Our team grew from just three, to eight! It’s impossible to put into words how incredible it feels to know that we have another year in store, that can be just as big… if not bigger.
What has stayed the same, however, is our commitment to creating content and irreverent design. There will never be a pattern or item that you can get at our shoppe that hasn’t been carefully curated and born just for you and yours. We want your home to feel branded, your life to feel elegant, and your world to be enhanced because we are in it. We live in a world of sparkle and possibility.
We look back at 2016 and see COLOR! Vibrant color in every way. From our beautiful collaboration with Style Me Pretty Living and our favorite boozy ice cream social, especially. (We still cannot get enough of the flavored Cathead vodkas when making signature cocktails.) The addition of our Kate Spade pieces set this apart as one of our favorite, and tastiest, shoots to date. You definitely want to re-visit the post and have as much fun as we did! Click, click!
With our beautiful space, we decided we needed to have our best girls over as often as possible. So, we started a hostess hour to share our best tips and tricks. From personal style to decor to how to create the perfect bar cart – we can’t wait to bring you even more fabulous ideas. (Re-live the fun of our very first Hostess Hour by a click here! Emily hosted a “Build-a-Bar” workshoppe.)
Paige Minear made a guest appearance to show off her signature style for August’s Hostess hour. She is fashionable, bold, self aware, and fearless. a perfect example of who we cater to here. Full recap by clicking here.
With the shoppe always aiming to please our busy clientele, we introduced our curbside service. Though we promise there is always plenty of parking, we can easily run your orders out to you when in a rush. Perfect for when you have to rush to a bridal shower, or back home to host your own fete! We won’t let you down. Click here to learn even more about our curbside service.
Savannah Weddings magazine was the perfect place for us to unveil a brand new pattern – our capri tile. Not only did we have a ball creating this gorgeous Bridesmaid luncheon, we were honored to be featured. Capri tile can be purchased to bring a touch of opulence to any room in your home. From pillows, to trays, to tea towels – we love to see a home outfitted and elevated in this pattern. To see all the gorgeous details of this shoot, read the full post here.
Life is better with your friends, so we teamed up with Moon & Lola to create a brand new set of products for you. This collaboration went hand in hand with the introduction of the newest font that Emily created – Woven. We were able to display this beautiful font on bracelets, key chains, necklaces, cake toppers, and even Christmas tree ornaments just to name a few. Classic with a modern flare – our favorite way to innovate! Click here to re-live the fun in our post!
We upped the ante with custom decks of playing cards. We also upped your gift giving game with this one. Click right here to learn more about our custom card decks!
Emily had some fun in Charleston with her favorite blogging girls at The Southern C conference. The Southern C has been such a valued part of our brand and culture here. Click here to see their website and revel in their content.
We made it our specific business to help you Invite Joy into your life and the lives of others. With every purchase we remind you to put joy at the top of your list – for yourself, and everyone you meet. A portion of all proceeds from our shoppe goes right back to the community to a different charity that we choose yearly. For our inaugural year, we chose The Next Generation at the Children’s Hospital. Visit our “Invite Joy” page to read more!
Emily was able to join Engage 2016 at Sea Island. The wedding industry is a passion of hers, and it’s a passion here at the Shoppe. How can we make your wedding day more elegant and special than you ever dreamed? How can we elevate your personal style to be laced into each and every detail right down to the invitations? We are constantly learning so continue being the best of the best when it comes to weddings.
And look here, a dream come true for Emily! We introduced the Holiday Paper Shoppe. Now anyone can inject their holiday cards with a higher level of elegance than ever before. Emily spent countless hours designing and perfecting these customizable holiday cards for you to send to all of your loved ones. High quality paper and gorgeous layouts mean that your cards are easily the most fun and chic to give and receive any holiday season! We hope you’re already excited for your 2017 holiday cards.
Perhaps the most special moment of all – we opened our brick and mortar store. The emerald green doors weren’t just the way to enter into the shoppe – they were a beacon of light showing us what hard work can achieve. There is no dream too big. That, we believe whole heartedly. Cheers to 2017.
