Spotlight on Britt Ryan

Aaaah, Britt Ryan. One of our favorite lines here at Sugar. We've carried this line since we opened in 2008 but you may remember it as the former "Molly B" line. Brittany bought out Molly B and changed the name to Britt Ryan of Boston [Britt's hometown and now home of her first signature store]. While she still incorporates preppy chic looks of classic cotton seersucker skirts and dresses that Molly B was known for, she's also changed it up a bit and added richer fabrics such as charmeuse, posh ponte knits, and silk. Her line has been transformed and is now comparable to those in the ranks of Tory Burch, Tibi, Milly, Kate Spade, and more at half the price. 

Britt Ryan dresses range from $158-$258 with separates ranging from $98-$158 but the quality you will find is superior to all others. It may very well be one of the best lines in our store in terms of quality. We never have quality issues with them and each garment is made right here in the USA. Her styles stay on top of trends each season, whether it be the prints or a few trendy styles, but for the most part she creates incredible classics that are investment pieces you will literally have in your closet for years to come! 

Here's a few of the gorgeous styles that have arrived recently at Sugar from her Summer I collection.

Have you ever seen a silk maxi dress this cute? Maxi dresses continue to be a wardrobe staple even for Spring/Summer 2012. This "Caribbean Wave"silk racerback maxi is effortless chic and can be accessorized with a skinny gold belt, gold sandals and pile of gold bangles to really add more pizazz! 

Here's an adorable spaghetti strap "criss cross back" in the "Polynesian Wave" color combo. Features gold button detail down the front and it's also 100% silk. Dress it up for a fun wedding or dress it down for a night at the beach. So many options!

Pink clover ruffle silk dress. So dainty, so cute. Perfect for the girly girl and absolutely fabulous with gold or nude shoes. Another perfect dress to "dress up or dress down" for endless events this Summer!

If you're a grad or bride-to-be this season, then you MUST own this dress. Britt's "Coconut Eyelet Cotton Shift" features gold button detail at back and is fully lined. Gorgeous and oh-so-flattering!

Prints are fun! Trust us, we love prints here at Sugar. Yet sometimes you just want a beautiful solid that will really show off your accessories or show off your BEST accessory - YOU!
This Seafoam silk dress with ruffle detail is super chic and the absolute perfect color to combine with your coral jewelry this season.

and what girl doesn't love PINK? Britt's "Strawberry Daiquri Pique Shift" with cut out detail at neckline is stunning yet practical. This classic shift will enjoy it's home in your closet for years to come!

Now for a sneak peek at Fall 2012. Hold on to your seats ladies!

The silk ruffle racerback tanks that have flown out of our doors the past few seasons are BACK in a gorgeous tangerine and fuchsia for early Fall {think July-August}
There will be fun shorts to pair with these as always!

Be sure to comment and let us know if you want the tangerine as we are sure Clemson fans will snatch it up in a heartbeat. Perfect color for those first few games.

One of our favorite prints for Fall: blockparty. Love all of the colors. This classic long sleeve shift is the perfect "look at me" dress paired with chic boots this Fall.

Great novelty prints that you won't find anywhere else like this adorable "queen of hearts" print.

A great silk blouse can be one of the most versatile pieces in your Fall wardrobe. How about a beautiful navy and tangerine paired back with tweed shorts, tights and boots? yes, please!

You'll also find classic ponte knit shifts and so much more...

Come in and ask us to show you the complete Britt Ryan collection. There's a little something for everyone and one thing is for sure, you're bound to ALWAYS get compliments when wearing these styles. This is why it's one of our customer favorites!

Celebrating 4 Sweet Years!

This past weekend Sugar celebrated it's 4th birthday! Wow! Time flies when you're having fun. We planned a fun weekend full of yummy treats, awesome new arrivals, free gifts, and fabulous sales. 

The store was packed with so many new bright and fun treats!

We gave away these adorable koozies with every $100 or more Lilly purchase!
They are handmade by Bloomin' Idiot Designs. A local friend started this business almost a year ago and she has the cutest things. Check out her Etsy shop HERE.

We also gave away cute reusable tote bags with EVERY purchase. We are going to do "flash sales" this Summer and if you got a Sugar tote this weekend you can bring that in on certain weekends this Summer (we'll announce on FB) and everything you can fit into the bag will be 15%, 20%, or 25% OFF or something like that. Thought it was a fun idea!

Missed out on snagging a bag this weekend? We still have a few for sale for $10 if you are interested. 

keep calm and eat cupcakes. that is our motto

We love our precious customers! Mrs. Nancy Hall is decked out in her Sugar jacket, Blossom shoes, and Uptown Pizazz earrings & clutch. A true Uptown Greenwood patron!

Mrs Debbie Medlock looking fabulous in her Sugar outfit and Blossom shoes! 

We even had a few "little" Sugar shoppers. They loved posing in the window and were our "live models" for the day :)

Maybe our youngest Sugar shopper ever! Graylen Patterson, only 2 weeks old! She's as tiny as our little Sugar bag...

Yzabel loved our marshmallow pops!

Sweet friends/customers came from Columbia, Lexington, Greenville, etc... and we are so appreciative of your support!

Also a huge thank you to those who shopped our online sales. More sale items will be posted soon, as well as promo codes for you guys to use.

Cheers to another sweet year in fabulous Uptown Greenwood!
