Ring in the Bling – It’s the month of May!
The month of May means one thing in this city…THE RACE! It sometimes seems like there are more activities to do during this one month than the rest of the eleven months combined. Whether you are headed to the race, attending time trials, enjoying Carb Day, or going to one of the many parties in this town, you will need something black and white to wear! The question is where to shop??? Your Girls About Town particularly enjoyed this month’s assignment…find some stores with great black and white apparel. While there are many places to shop, we landed at Delaney’s, the Baglady Boutique, and AH Collection. All three shops are locally owned by some of your Geist neighbors and definitely “qualify” as winners to these shoppers!
One clear trend we found…BLING IS IN!!! Be it on a tank top, belt, hat, sunglasses, or jeans, you will see lots of rhinestones out and about this May. It’s a fun look that we couldn’t resist! The month of May is all about fun, and what’s more fun than a little sparkle?!? You can add a little dazzle to your hair, too. All three shops had cute glitzy hair accessories, also.
The first store we visited was Delaney’s at Oaklandon and Fox Roads. We were greeted by the always-friendly owners, Mary and Dan Larson. Named for their daughter, Delaney’s has been a go-to shop for Geist ladies since 2002. You’ll find everything from cutting edge fashions to great home accessories to the perfect hostess gift! If you need some black and white to decorate your home for the month of May, check out the many choices this store has to offer. Some of the more special accessories are the hand-painted, Indy-500-inspired wine glasses that Delaney’s grandmother created for the shop. Mary also has everything you could want if you are looking to impress someone at a race party. Delaney’s has racks of black and white outfits – not to mention race-themed sandals, jewelry, and hair accessories. Whether, you need a dressier outfit for a party or something more casual for race day, Delaney’s has you covered. Delaney’s has four locations across Indianapolis in Geist, Fishers, Noblesville, and the Fashion Mall.
Next on our shopping trip was the Baglady Boutique– a quaint little shop chock full of blingy surprises in the shopping center at Fall Creek and Brooks School Road next door to Detour an American Bar and Grill. Owners Missy Card and her fiancé Kevin Krauss have done a wonderful job providing Geist-area residents with a great selection of fun, easy-breezy apparel items, blingy jewelry, purses, and accessories. Missy has been designing and manufacturing apparel for over 14 years. The Baglady Boutique celebrates her one-year anniversary this month, bringing Geist a fantastic shopping experience without the typical boutique prices! You’ll find LOTS of bling on the hundreds of Indy 500 items, including unique shirts, one-of-a-kind jackets, tote bags, cute hats, jeans, shorts, sundresses, belts, and jewelry. Ladies you will get a lot of bling for your buck here at the Baglady Boutique! Oh wait!!! Don’t forget Missy also offers custom designs …bring in your own items & Baglady Boutique will bling them out for you!
CAUTION! We found another store we loved…AH Collection! Located at Hamilton Town Center next to Aveda Rain, AH Collection is co-owned by best friends Anna White and Holly Kirsch. You have to love ladies who can team together and create such a success! We noticed the special attention they give their customers. It’s really like shopping with a stylist! They can help you pick out just the right outfit for the look you want. These former makeup artists can help you with clothing, accessories, and cosmetics. The store is full of black and white this month along with their typically fun and brightly-colored offerings. They also have a second shop at Clay Terrace in Carmel. The owners have taken full advantage of the social media for marketing, too. They are on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. They have over 1000 followers on Facebook and feature a “Deal of the Day” that you might want to check out! They host Girls Night Out events, birthday celebrations, and other pampering events. They also have spa events every six weeks at both locations. If you want to WOW someone this May, let these owners who have a “passion for fashion” help you rev up your look!!
The Indy 500 is the event of the year in this town! Whether you head to the track, a neighborhood party, or a local watering hole, you’re going to want something new to wear. So ladies…START YOUR ENGINES, and race over to one of these great shops. You’ll look like you belong in Victory Lane!
