After such a celebration of fun and excitement like St. Patrick’s Day, it’s important to remember that everything we do must be echoed with our ability to give back and support one another, and those less fortunate. This year, we have dedicated our InviteJOY campaign to The Leukemia Lymphoma Society. This means a portion of our 2017 sales will be given directly to our local LLS chapter to help fight for a cure for blood cancer!

This is where Ashley comes in. You may recognize her as she is our Head Hostess of Creative and a very talented calligrapher and artist. Not only is Ashley an artistic visionary bringing life to her vital role here at the Emily McCarthy studio and shoppe, but she is also a true pillar in the Savannah community. She was selected as a 2017 Candidate for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society Man and Woman of the Year!

In an effort to help Ashley reach her goal of $50,000, we are asking all of you to help one of our very own. We are pressing forward every day for a cure for blood cancer. Many of us have experienced, or know someone who has experienced, a loss or witnessed a battle of someone with cancer. This doesn’t have to be the future of our world, with our support – we can end this. 

We would love for you to help support Ashley as she becomes the face of awareness. The more you shop, the more we give! However, don’t forget to also donate here: http://www.mwoy.org/pages/ga/savannah17/ashleycurry 

It is with great pride that we can call Ashley a member of our team. With your donation, she can show those suffering from Leukemia or Lymphoma that the Emily McCarthy woman is a woman who is both stylish and bountiful. Always counting her blessings and inviting joy to everyone near and far.

Is there a more trusted name in the industry of knowing just exactly where to go and what to do there than Travel + Leisure?

Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 2.47.21 PM

We’ll give you a moment to ponder that. Likely, however, you won’t even need a moment! The answer is that there’s no more trusted outlet for the modern day traveler than this prestigious publication. We are so dazzled to be included in their guide to Savannah, GA!

Take a look at the full article by clicking here. Then, take yourself over to the shoppe and treat yourself to something new! We believe an appropriate celebration always includes a little something for you and a  little something for your next fabulous fete.

Cheers, indeed!

We are a mere week away from the most exciting day of the year in Savannah, GA! There has been so much hustle and bustle, you’d almost think Santa and his elves were hiding back in our office. As it turns out, it’s just our jolly green shoppe hostesses and creative team.

PersonalizedStPats

This year, we wanted to approach St. Patrick’s Day with a fresh set of eyes. As always, it’s never our goal to imitate – we much prefer bold steps forward in a direction that hasn’t yet been taken. This is why we introduced the heritage collection – the personalized pieces that you can use year after year to celebrate your proud Irish heritage! Though pre-orders were already processed, it’s not too late to get them! You’ll see they lend themselves to the entire year – and the one after that, and the one after that!

Part of being a lifestyle brand is engaging with other beautiful brands that walk hand in hand with our elegant, coastal style. We know that a home is comprised of pieces from many different places, and its important to us that our product will not just stand out from the rest – but we want to make sure our pieces compliment the rest as well. We have found that the coastal inspirations and whimsy of Spartina 449 are truly complimentary to the Emily McCarthy style.

Do you love Emily’s scarf in the very first photo? It’s darling and it’s even more precious because it’s a scarf with the map of Savannah on it. Click either of the images above to make sure it’s in your wardrobe!

We hosted a sip and shop event at Spartina 449’s downtown Savannah location at the end of October and had such a fun experience. The baubles, the totes, the devotion to seaside life – it truly aligns itself with all of our favorite things! How gorgeous is this store?

Emily McCarthy + Spartina 449

We see the girl with signature style who can’t get enough of a great classic, brown cross body bag. Inside it she has a journal to keep all of her fresh and exciting ideas about her passion. The Spartina 449 Savannah map journal tugs at our heart strings, because it’s so important to keep home close to you no matter where you are. She never leaves the home without a bit of sparkle and a bit of sass. Spot cheetah around her neck is a must!

She’s also the kind to have her folded notes closeby so that no matter what adventure she’s on, she’s sending love to those who fill her heart the most.

Ask any bride and she’ll agree – she can’t thank her bridesmaids enough for lending support during the most exciting time in her life! Hosting a bridesmaids luncheon is the perfect way to introduce bridesmaids who come from different cities and different friend groups, it’s also a beautiful way to express your gratitude!

IMG_7109

When we were asked to style a bridesmaid luncheon, there was nothing but excitement at the Emily McCarthy Shoppe. Weddings give us life around here, from paper products to custom monogramming and our brand new Registry Programme – they’re practically the tie that binds!

We drew our inspiration from something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. What we loved about this – is that all of these things could be represented in the classic ginger jar. They come in so many shapes and sizes, a centerpiece was born.

IMG_7473

Once the centerpieces made their places at the table, filling them with vibrant flowers was the easy touch that could take them from ornamental to truly sensational. As we continued the theme of bright pink to mix with the white and blue, we loved the variety that John Davis Florist selected. Instead of sticking with one type of flower for each ginger jar, we were blown away at the impact that the different types truly made as far as the statement went.

Pink, white, and blue on a lush green backdrop. Vibrant, yet not busy. Special, yet completely achievable. Our exclusive Capri Tile print makes its debut here and really steals the show! From the invitations, dinner napkins, and large pillows – this gorgeous print is bold and simple all at once. IMG_7141

Sweet treats were quite literally the icing on the cake to bring our luncheon above and beyond. The fabulous artists at Gigi’s Cupcakes Savannah not only matched our colors perfectly, they utilized their creative abilities to make a special, sparkling touch. For even more details, be sure to pick up the latest copy of Savannah Weddings Magazine!

One of my favorite spots around Savannah is the newly renovated Cohen’s Retreat! The building used to be a home for retired gents, then an Olympic training facility. Now, the doors have been reopened for a full restaurant, event space and retail shop.

Savannah, Georgia is such a destination spot for vacationers and I am often asked to share my favorite local hotspots. When J. McLaughlin asked me to sport a few of my favorite items from their collection, I thought Savannah would be the perfect backdrop for a family tour! First stop? One of my go-to lunch spots, Kayak Kafe.

Since we are gluten-free (husband has celiac and I have a moderate intolerance), we stick to a very limited list of restaurants that provide GF menu choices. Kayak Kafe offers many options for their signature tacos, paninis and salads. Delish! I love their focus on fresh ingredients and a “California” style. They have two locations, Downtown on Broughton Street and Midtown on Paulsen Street.

For lunch with a girlfriend, I decided to go with the Tania Top and Pippa Pants – super comfy and stretch for a fulfilling meal and chasing little ones!
