Put on Your Pearls, Girls!

 As you know, we are always on a quest to bring you the most clever of everything, and our latest find is absolutely tops on the list.  Clever Girl is very excited to announce our custom pearl collection.  Designed by a former New York fashion editor (you've heard of In Style Magazine, no?) these are NOT stuffy Grannie pearls. These are pearls with a twist.  Instead of ho-hum pearls on a boring basic white cord, these are hand knotted on COLORFUL silk threads.

As the designer says, "From jeans and a t-shirt, to a couture gown, a backyard BBQ to your best friend's wedding, these freshwater pearl necklaces, bracelets and earrings will complement every occasion."  We couldn't agree more.

When you visit, we will show you samples of the beautiful pearl pieces, and all the yummy silk thread colors.  You just have to decide what pieces to start with.  A zippy bracelet (on the super-girly pink silk) would be a great gift for a dear friends Birthday, and the darling earrings would be a perfect sweet sixteen gift.  Perhaps a pearl necklace on lime silk is just what you are craving....
Oh, and did we mention that each piece comes lovingly packaged in its own darling, handmade pink and green keepsake pouch?  See, we told you this was a good find!  P.S. Special orders take a little time, so don't delay...

Four Legged Friend

As some of you may know, my little hound is summering at the shore with out me this year, and I am beginning to really miss her.  While I know she's having a wonderful time with her sister Lilly, I do miss having a dog around the house.
(Now, it's not like I've left her with someone creepy....she's staying with very lovely people) I do miss that wagging tail, but I get to see quite a few canines at work....
At Clever Girl, the "men folk" and the dogs are often waiting around out on the sidewalk while their clever girls shop--but all are welcome to come in!  We love it when our customers bring in their four legged shopping companions.  Charlie, Hanna, Roy and Gretel are just some of the regular dogs in here, and it's great when they pop in for a visit and one of the treats we keep at the counter.  So if you and your best buddy are out and about, stop in.  There's always fresh water by the front door and room for one more.  Oh, and the guys can come in too.

Cheers on the 4th!


May we suggest a tasty libation for your weekend enjoyment?   Clever Girl's very own Clever Kathy has tested and tested and re-tested this (and many other) beverage recipes. Perhaps this is why blonds have more fun.... The term party-girl suits Kathy quite well--don't let the Donna Reed appearance fool you. She's our party planner extraordinaire, and if she says it's good, it is!  Here then is her very own Patriotic Sangria, guaranteed to get the party started, and maybe even set off a few fireworks.  A Happy 4th to you all!
  1 750 ml bottle fruity white wine

  1/3 cup sugar
  3/4 cup apricot flavored brandy
  6 Tbsp thawed lemonade concentrate
  1 cup sliced red grapes
  1 cup whole strawberries (if large, slice in half)
  1 cup sliced purple (blue colored grapes)
  1 cup blueberries
Mix together the white wine, sugar, brandy and lemonade until well mixed.
Add the red grapes, strawberries, purple grapes and blueberries.
Refrigerate overnight.
Serve the next day from a large pitcher filled with ice.
Decorate with flags or streamers...
