From Paris With Love

Not to be missed -- the adorable children's line Mimi'lou Paris!  Whimsical paper lanterns, soft stuffed animal pillows, and the most imaginative wall decals we've laid eyes on.  Truly unique things for your own little ones and perfect for gift giving.

If you haven't been introduced to Jacadi Paris, the time is now!  This fragrance line was created especially for children, with baby boy and girl scents that are completely alcohol free and suitable for spritzing in nurseries, and even on clothing.   There are also scents for elementary-aged little men and women -- light enough to be worn daily and sure to delight those that love to feel "all grown up."

Nous Sommes Si Enthousiastes!!

Is how you say "We Are So Excited!!" in French -- not to be confused with "Nous sommes tres excitee!"  Which is "We are so turned on!"  (Glad I checked my online translator!  But maybe it's both?!)

Paris  Envy will be moving!!  This fall we are joining a fabulous group of local businesses at what will be known as Union at the Biltmore.  Multiple wonderfulness all in one spot!  And though the space will be a wee bit smaller, the offerings will be every bit as amazing, and then some.
Stay tuned for details...
And in the mean time, rush down to claim your one-of-a-kind Paris Envy treasure!  Many pieces will not be re-created, and once they're gone, au revoir!
