Spring 2012 Pre-Order: Ellen & Ollie

Here at Sugar, we've carried the fabulous line Ellen & Ollie before. We dabbled into her exclusive collection and brought in a few exquisite styles for our customers the past few seasons. Molly Stevens, the owner, designer, and seamstress, {also local girl who resides in Columbia and is a Clemson graduate} was doing every aspect by hand and on her own. Well now we are excited to announce that Molly has found a local SC manufacturer and has finally went wholesale with her new line! She had her first "booth" at AmericasMart a few weeks ago and we were delighted to see the new styles and what she has in store for Spring! Now we will definitely have LOTS of great pieces from her and we are so excited to let you take a sneak peek to ensure we get exactly what style you love in the exact size you need.

Here's the styles we have on order. If you'd like for us to call you when a particular style arrives or you are interested in a pre-order, please call us at 864.229.6322 or simply email us at or comment on this post. They should begin arriving in February and March just in time for Carolina Cup, Spring Break, and Easter!

Big Bow One Shoulder Dress
in this sophisticated, chic black/white geometric print.
You can never go wrong with black and white!
i just can't get enough of this big bow!
Ruffle Neck Shift
in a fabulous, bold colorful print!
This just screams Carolina Cup.
Ruffle One Shoulder Dress

Open Back Shift
We're doing this shift in the pink/creme geometric print instead of the purple/pink. You will see that print in another dress later.
The pink/creme really makes this dress dainty and chic. Check out the back...
Swoon! Love the open back and gold button detail!
Bow Front Dress
I personally absolutely love this style AND this print. This may be my favorite!
Classic, flattering halter style in a bright bold print.

I've numbered the styles if you'd like to comment and let us know which styles you'd like to "pre-order". That means we will hold the style and call you for purchase before we put it out on the sales floor. You can also email us at if you see anything you like! Oh and we know you will...

Then they hopped over to Blossom Shoes & Such, The Frilly Frog, and David Lindsey for even more "sippin' and shoppin'". The support we have from our customers is amazing and we appreciate each and every one of you who stopped by to shop yesterday.

What are "transition pieces"?

Transition styles are pieces that you can simply wear now [in Summer] then transition and wear them later [in the Fall/Winter].

We've received several Early Fall styles this week from Tulle that will help you do just that! Really gives you more bang for your buck since you can wear these styles much longer than you think. Take a look....

If you don't already have an LBS, "little black skirt", then don't miss out on this one!

At $38 bucks it's perfect to wear now with tanks galore, then layer over fun colored tights with boots this Fall/Winter!

Here's a classic cotton dress by Tulle in this oh-so-neat splatter paint fabric. You can barely see it until close up. We love navy because it's a great color for Summer and then into Fall. Wear this dress with a colorful pair of sandals for now, then layer a fun cardigan and cowboy boots over it in the Fall!

We LOVE this layered Fall stripes dress with button detail at shoulder and elastic waist.
We've added an Elise M belt to accent this look, but think how great it would look also in the Fall with a denim jacket and boots? Great colors!

This new cardigan with pockets by Rain has got PIZAZZ. Check out the studded/chain detail at the shoulder. We love it with a bright pink Dance in Paris tee for now, but then layer it over a black long sleeve tee in the Fall/Winter with skinnies and motorcycle boots for a fun "rocker chic" look!

Another great wrap style. Again, love it over a tank for now but you can also layer up over a long sleeve Dance in Paris tee this Fall. The beautiful creme color makes for a great neutral!

Another fun look that is SO trendy now is lace. This little black lace tee is a great price at $28 and you can wear layered over a bright pink tank this Summer for a sexy little night out, then layer over a black long sleeve Dance in Paris tee this Fall. So many options

just get creative and come on in to snag these looks!

Trendspotting: Denim Shorts

We just received Paige Premium Denim cuffed Debonair short. The fabric is to die for! So incredibly soft and lightweight. Nice dark wash that you can dress up or dress down.

Certainly not your average "jorts" ;)

Celebs everywhere are wearing the "jean short" [or "jort"] trend. Dress it up or dress it down, it's a must have for Summer

Here's a version of the Paige Premium Denim short, worn by Rachel Bilson.

The ones we have in store are a darker wash and more of a "trouser short" style.

Short shorts and heels? Yes! It's a sexy little look to try.

Personally, i love short denim shorts with oversized tunics, cute sandals, sunglasses and an oversized bag. Such an easy, casual look to pull off and so chic!

Love the California-chic look that Kristen Cavallari does oh-so-well?

You can have it too! Look out for a great cut off short by It Jeans that should arrive soon!

Trendspotting: Wide Leg Denim

We just got in the most amazing pair of Citizens jeans today! It's the Hutton Medium Rise Wide Leg in Oxford Wash. The oxford wash is great for Summer because it's so lightweight and slightly distressed. The medium rise is a great way to "ease into" the high rise/wide leg trend. Celebs are wearing them everywhere and we're going to show you how you can too

Citizens of Humanity Hutton Oxford Wide Leg

here it is worn by Khloe Kardashian.

Khloe pairs it with a flowy tunic, a leather jacket, and wedges. Easy and look how long/lean it makes her legs look! Love.
We also have the Paige Denim Bentley Trouser that is FAB-ulous.

It's the most lightweight denim we have in the store. So comfy, you'll want to sleep in them. This wash is a bit dressier, so it's perfect if you need a dressy trouser style!
Again, the higher rise and wide flare is guaranteed to make your legs look tall and lean

Don't be afraid to tuck in those tops ladies! The medium rise hides those dreaded muffin tops and actually makes your waist look... {gasp} SMALLER! Here's Lauren Conrad wearing a gorgeous silk button up blouse, tucked in the front, with high rise wide leg jeans. Accessorized with big sunglasses, wedges, and a Chanel bag. How chic!

Well, if you want the look for less, try our MM Couture red button up blouse for $64 that looks amazing tucked into the COH Hutton jean, as well as dressy shorts too! Pair with a quilted chain strap handbag and wedges from Blossom Shoes & Such and you've got a celeb look without ever leaving Greenwood!
