shine bright in 2013!

Tis the season to SPARKLE and SHINE!

Christmas is over and now it's time to ring in the new year. Who's excited about 2013? I know we are!
The big question is, what will you wear? Well we've got lots of great new items in store that will surely make your NYE BRIGHT! After all, sequins are all the rage right now - for anytime - so NYE makes it especially time to wear them. 

Love this gold/nude sequin tank that just arrived. Looks great with black Citizens skinnies and you can layer under a black blazer for a more subtle look. Tuck it into a bright skirt. Wear with bright colored denim. So many options!

Ahhh, black and silver. Classic. This somewhat sheer blouse features just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle at the front. It's stunning just as is! You'll love how comfy it is too!

For a little sleeve coverage, check out this trendy "high-low hem" top that features gold sequins at front. Again, simply stunning as is. You can't go wrong with this one!

We also have a great black sequin jacket that is AMAZING! 

Also a few pieces left of this great Karlie peplum blouse with gold sequin neckline. Adorable with colored denim or a cute black skirt!

There's fun tops galore with just the right amount of sparkle, for another fun option!

If you're looking for more traditional styles, let's not forget our great cocktail dress selection. Styles from LaRoque, Britt Ryan, Lilly and more will make a statement when the clock strikes 12!

Here's our "Pin-spiration" for our "sequin lovin" style choices to ring in the new year. Again, you must come in and see the fabulous black sequin jacket similar to this one. Love.

All pink and purple dot items in the store are 40% off. Plus we've got clearance racks with awesome items! Grab your gift card Santa left you and head up to Sugar this weekend.

sweet celebrations.

Just wanted to extend a huge CONGRATULATIONS to the new Mr. and Mrs. Mack Seal Hite!
As most of you know, my sister Courtney has helped me so much here at Sugar from day one. She was there in the very beginning to get this store going and even though she is a full time community liason for Ark Hospice, she continues to help us on Saturdays and pop in to model for photoshoots. 
Whenever we need her, she's always there and we are blessed to have her. 

Courtney and Mack wed on Saturday, December 15th at First Baptist Church of Iva and their reception was held at Cateechee Golf Club & Resort in Hartwell, GA.

For the rehearsal dinner the bride wore Britt Ryan's opal shift and coat, available at Sugar.

Bridesmaids wore an elegant majestic purple dress by Alfred Sung and the honorary bridesmaids wore the gold Eleanor Wrap dress by LaRoque, also available at Sugar. Shoes were from Blossom Shoes & Such here in Greenwood.

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Hite. On behalf of the Sugar girls, we wish you a lifetime full of sweet happiness!

Also I wanted to post a photo of our "sweet Sugar staff" at our recent Christmas dinner at Pascals here in Greenwood. We laughed because out of the six of us, there's four engaged and one expecting a precious baby boy in the Spring! Congrats to Allison (our lovely Sugar model and helper on Saturdays when she's not busy being a full time teacher. Far left) and her husband Jason. We are so excited to welcome another baby boy into our Sugar fam.

Also congrats to Brittany (our store manager. to my left in the picture) on her recent engagement. She will wed in May. Then there's my sister Courtney who recently wed then Ellie, who will wed in April and Hannah (far right) who will wed next December! Even though Court, Ellie and Hannah help us out on Saturdays, we appreciate their sweet service. As for Brittany, my store manager, I absolutely do not know what I would do without her! These girls are the best!

Yes, Brittany, Courtney and I all have on our Citizens of Humanity Avedon Ultra Skinnies in Axel. THE BEST skinnies ever! Seriously, if you haven't tried these come on in the store and slip on a pair. They are unbelievably stretchy and feel like you are wearing leggings!
2013 is sure to be a fun year for the girls at Sugar, full of celebrations especially as we will celebrate FIVE SWEET YEARS at Sugar in April. It's going to be the BEST year yet and always, we want to thank you for shopping with us and your continued support.  

Blessings to everyone this Christmas season and here's to a happy happy new year full of sweet celebrations!

an update.

Just wanted to give everyone an update on the black and white chevron novelty top {and dress} that was re-ordered a few weeks ago. They gave us estimated ship date of 12/10. As of today, which is the 18th, they have not shipped. We have contacted them and they are waiting for the goods to arrive at their warehouse. This is out of our control and we apologize that we can't "work magic" and make this happen sooner because if we could, trust me we would! It is our mission to bring you the best styles here at Sugar and being that this was one of our best sellers, we desperately wanted to re-order and have them for those who wanted them yet didn't get one during the first order.

We appreciate your patience and assure you that we will call/email those who signed up to be alerted first as soon as they arrive, as well as post a Facebook status/blog post.

Blessings to you and your families during this Holiday season!

-Sandi and the Sugar staff

It's time to THINK PINK!

It's no secret that the girls at Sugar absolutely LOVE pink. One step into the door and you'll notice shimmering pink walls adorned with racks and racks of gorgeous clothing!

This month we're dressing our windows in PINK for another reason. October is breast cancer awareness month and ladies it's time to THINK PINK!

Fashion Friday: Back in Black

Holy smokes, y'all. We are absolutely LOVING the new Citizens of Humanity Avedon Ultra Skinnies in Axel {black} that just arrived today. Rihanna loves them too! She's been spotted wearing them not once...or twice...but FOUR times from London to LA.

She loves rockin' her COH black skinnies and she does it well!

Find them in store or online at our website here.

We love the "ultra skinny" style because it looks great with flats/sandals/etc, yet tucks perfectly into boots with no "bulge" at the knee. Sleek, smooth look that's oh so flattering!

Black denim is quickly becoming "the new go-to-skinny". Again, it's beyond flattering and will literally go with everything in your closet. Just take a look at just a few, of many, celebs that love them and see how they wear them!

Charlize rocks the "black on black". Scroll on down to see our new perfect Fall must have black blazer to recreate this look! 

Also, we've LOVED how everyone on Pinterest has paired black skinnies with easy going chambray denim tops [like our Karlie one, here] . Great contrast and a precious new trend that's easy to try this seaon! 

We also got in the most perfect 3/4 sleeve black blazer by Luii. It is SO comfy, lightweight and an absolute must for this season. If you haven't heard, blazers will be a HUGE trend so be sure to snag this one up fast. At $78, it's a great price and trust us, you will wear it with EVERYTHING.
Click here to purchase.

See, celebs also love their black blazers. So many fun looks you can create! They're not just for the boring ole' office anymore. 

Stop by today and see ALL of our new fun, fab Fall looks.
As always, we are thrilled to bring you the hottest celeb trends right here to Greenwood!
