Great Guys Pajamas

~~~~~~~~~~The COUNTDOWN BEGINS...Great Guy Pajamas will arrive shortly!
The wait is just about over. Hip! Hip! Hurray! We know "girls just wanna have fun." but the guys want in on the action, too. Our ladies pajamas in animal prints and solids have been a hit. Ladies all over the country are sporting our sassy ensembles.

However, the guys weren't feelin' the love. They felt like it was outright discrimination to not have cool looking male sleep attire. We could not sleep with the thought of a discrimination lawsuit...soooo...we swung into action with our favorite designer to offer the best pj's for HIM in the country. Heck, these might be the best and most comfortable in the whole world.

The pj's are a super soft cotton fabric with a drawstring waist. The fabric choices are really masculine. As soon as these babies arrive into the shop, we will add them to the website and you can start ordering.

Crisis averted. No lawsuit in sight. {{Whew}} Good Night! The guys are resting and "sleeping tight."

Wild about our Zebra PJ's & Tennis Racket Covers

"Going wild" would be the only way to describe the staff when our new zebra pajamas arrived. Then we dug deeper in the box and found leopard, black zebra and pink zebra tennis racket covers.

The shop turned into a frenzy like atmosphere. Here at Sandestin Resort, this weekend is known as "Tennis Ladies Getaway." The ladies may have gotten away from their homes and hubbies, but they would not get away from our zebra tennis racket covers. They were buying them out of the box. I wish I had a camera to show you the chaos.

Of course, each tennis lady wanted a monogram added to the items and wanted to know "how fast" it could be ready...because they HAD to have the tennis racket cover for their afternoon match. Too funny.

Crisis averted. The personalization team swung (no pun intended) into action and completed the job. The tennis ladies were soooo happy and soooo stylish.

We also have black zebra and pink aprons. We will post a photo soon. Call the shop to order any of the items in today's blog and mention BLOG and earn 10% off each item.

FaBOOBlous Tata Story!

The first week of Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been really rewarding at Tales by the Sea. Not only have we convinced/bribed several women to get mammograms, sold lots of SAVE the TaTas products, but we even taught our first "snowbird" what "tatas" were. Yes, indeed, that does equal rewarding.

You see, this little old snow bird (for those of you who do not live in the south...a snowbird is a person who flocks from the colder northern climates to the south for the warm winters)came in and was starring at the Tatas hat pictured above. He just didn't get it. Finally, he approached the counter and confidently asked, "just was is a "tot-tas" and why do you people in Florida think it needs saving?"

I sweetly replied that the correct pronunciation was "ta-ta's" and that all women during the month of October should get a mammogram, hint, hint. The poor old bird just didn't get it. He said in a thick, New York accent, "lady, that's nice 'n all, but I still want to know what is a tot-tot?"

Seeing that I was getting no where with him, a nice tennis lady who was shopping nearby stepped in, placed her hands in the appropriate spot on her chest and said, "look mister, these are tatas and you better buy the darn hat!" At which point he turned around embarrassed and purchased 2 hats and a t-shirt. (We gave the tennis lady her hat free for the hilarious demonstration!)

As they say on Grey's Anatomy...seriously, please do a self exam and get a regular mammogram AND show your "support of for the girls" by purchasing a Save the Tata item! You will be faBOOBlous!

Think Pink Totebag

Happy October yall! Today feels like fall and today marks the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please, please go get a mammogram if you are at risk. (ok, there I said it, errrr, hold on for a minute, I need to go make my appointment, too!)

Our featured item today is the Think Pink Tote bag in yummy mocha brown and bubblegum pink. This bag is perfect to take on an overnight trip, to the pool or beach or to school or work. Roomy inside for lots of items and a convenient outside pocket to store your cell phone and keys.

We suggest monogramming it in a bubblegum pink thread. If you know of a person battling breast cancer...treat them to this bag. It would be a nice item to pack books or magazines in to take to their chemo treatments.

*SPECIAL* Order on our website before 10-17-08 and get the monogram F*R*E*E!
