Fall is upon us and we are ready to celebrate the change of the
season. Not every celebration has to be a big party or a lavish
get together, we believe that every day deserves a celebration,
even one as simple as a weeknight dinner at the kitchen counter.
So gather your favorite herbs from the garden and join us in
celebrating the start of fall with…
One of my favorite experiences that I’ve had with St. Jude is
visiting the hospital for the first time and participating in the
St. Jude Memphis Marathon (no not the full marathon, but I did
run a race!).
The Annual Coton Colors Warehouse Sale… it’s the BEST time of the
year! But seriously, it’s our favorite. If you haven’t made it to
the Warehouse Sale before, you’re in luck! Our Annual Sale is
just around the corner and this year you have not one, but TWO
opportunities to make it to the infamous sale!
So go ahead, sign up to receive your free copy and get to reading
and planning your next celebration…or just simply pour yourself a
glass of wine and indulge in reading. Because let's face it,
today is another reason to celebrate, and that’s reason enough.
15 years ago, my mom was initially tapped to design custom
products for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help
provide inspiration and happiness to supporters and patients for
them to sell in their catalog and gift shop. Since then, I have
begun to help my mom design the products and pieces for St. Jude
and my love for the hospital has grown immensely.
When I think back over the years I’ve come to realize many of my
fond memories where I both felt loved and celebrated or where I
am celebrating someone else, little gifts, mementos, or “a little
something special” are often present in that memory.
A few years ago, my mom, Aunt Marcie and I took a trip to Spain.
It trip was filled with olive oil tasting, touring different
parts of the country, and amazing food. It was on this trip that
we fell in love with the Spanish tradition of small bites.
The start of September brings Childhood Cancer Awareness Month- a
month so special to me as Coton Colors gives back and spreads
awareness through our Attached to a Cause campaign.
During this month, we are standing alongside those children and
their families who have been affected by this horrible disease.
To show our support, we are excited to announce the release of
our new Happy…
We’ve begun a tradition of taking a lobstering trip to the
Bahamas or the Florida Keys each summer with family and close
friends. Taking a week from work to enjoy a little R&R and
the carefree atmosphere of the sea is something I look forward to
all year long.
