The PGA Merchandise Show 2017

Show Stopping!

Hey guys!!! Wow, it has been a while since my last blog post. This year one of my goals is to be better about keeping everyone up to date on all things SE :) 

First of all, I just want to thank everyone on a very successful 2016. Who would have thought that a little girl with a golf club and a dream of having a little skort line would turn into what it is. I have every one of YOU to thank for that!

We just got back from the PGA Merchandise Show and had a blast debuting our Spring 2017 Collection. We got so much great feedback and am so excited to announce the new retailers where you will be able to find us! I can’t announce exactly who yet, but lets just say we will be a lot more accessible this year than last. :) 

This collection is my favorite we have done to date. My favorite part about this line are all the new prints and how easy it is to put outfits together with every piece. We have 5 essential shirt colors that goes with any and every skort print and gives you that complete SE look! I will have another blog post up going into more detail about the collection and it will be available later this month! I am so so excited for you all to see.

One of the biggest highlights from this week was being featured on The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive with Bailey Mosier. I had just arrived in Orlando and was getting ready to go to set up when I got the email saying they wanted to feature me on the women’s golf apparel segment. I can’t even tell you how exciting/scary that was! They wanted to spotlight one of my mannequins on the live segment. The only problem was I did not bring a mannequin… Do you know how hard it is to find a good quality mannequin last minute when you’re at one of the biggest trade shows of the year? It’s not easy. After running around the city of Orlando during rush hour, I was able to find just what I needed in the knick of time. Shoutout to Barr Display for hooking me up! You can see the full video here

We were setup at booth 6554 this year and the upgrades we made to our booth really paid off. It felt like a little store with wood flooring and all. I used an Atlanta-based business called Let’s Display and they had everything set up for me when I arrived on Tuesday. If you ever need someone for your display needs they were awesome to work with! 

This was right after my mad mannequin search.

So thankful for my beautiful help!

One of my favorite things about going to this show every year is meeting other designers of some of my favorite brands. Here is a picture with designers of Sailor-Sailor (super cute dresses!) and Lisi Lerch (my favorite earrings!).

And of course a trip to Orlando would not be complete without a day at Disney World! The past couple years after the show we have been meeting up with some of our family from the Tampa area and just taking a couple days to relax and have some fun after the rush of the show. 

Don't judge on the winter coats...it was cold!!
