Online Boutique, “The Pelican Loft” Opens in Fairhope
FAIRHOPE, Ala. - The Pelican Loft is now open in the Fairhope area offering unique clothing and accessories. They celebrated the opening with a ribbon cutting at the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce office Friday, July 7.
The Pelican Loft carefully chooses the most current fashions in a limited quantity, so customers will get a unique piece. Owners Lori Thompson and Michelle McKean say you should be prepared to have all your friends asking, "Where did you get that?”
The owners say shopping and helping people make fashion decisions has always been one of our favorite activities. "There is a thrill when you help someone pick out something that looks great on them and leaves them feeling more confident and beautiful!” said Thompson. They decided that there was no better way to do that than to start their own boutique.
You may be surprised to find out that the Pelican Loft is a home-based business. Almost all of their sales are online, but they will occasionally host a shopping day from their office or run a "Pelican Pop-Up" at another local business. If you are interested in hosting a Pop-Up at your business you can contact them at: email@example.com.
Painting with a Twist Brings Fun and Art Together on the Eastern Shore
SPANISH FORT, Ala. - Painting with a Twist is bringing painting to life on the Eastern Shore. They’re now open at 10200 Eastern Shore Blvd, #400, Spanish Fort, AL. The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce celebrated their grand opening with a ribbon cutting June 27.
Painting with a Twist is a great place to relax, have fun with your friends and discover your inner artist. Bring your favorite bottle of wine or beverage and paint along with artists on staff. You’ll have a fun work of art to take home at the end of the evening.
Managing Partner Shelby Patterson says she got started with Painting with a Twist 5 years ago as a part-time artist while finishing her Art Degree. After spending time as an artist in residence in the Amazon jungles of Peru, she went back to Painting with a Twist as a co-manager at the Pensacola location. "The Studio Owner there, Jenny Muller, and I began discussing the possibilities of opening a Studio along the Eastern Shore. We began planning and plotting, and a couple of years later, we have made it happen!" said Patterson.
Painting with a Twist provides all painting supplies and artist instructions. No art experience is necessary. Two hour classes are offered for $35 and three hour classes for $45. Open classes are fun for you and a friend or small group.
On top of our scheduled classes, they also offer private parties. You can schedule a 'Private Party' any day of the week. These classes are the same price/person, and you get to pick whichever painting from their library that your heart desires. Your group will also get a private room to yourselves. You just must have a minimum of 10 painters (12 if you schedule after 5pm on a Friday or Saturday night). These are great for Girls' Night Outs, Bachelorette Parties, Birthday Parties, or no reason at all!
They offer team building events, where groups break down a painting to multiple canvases to create one giant mural. Also, franchisees from across the nation hold monthly painting fundraisers through the Painting with a Purpose program to benefit local charities. To date, Painting with a Twist locations donated more than $1,000,000 to local groups.
Gift Cards make a unique gift for any occasion and are available for purchase online or in the studio.
Follow Painting with a Twist on Facebook to hear about studio events, get sneak previews of new art and our monthly calendar, participate in promotions exclusive to Facebook fans, and more! You can also find them online at https://paintingwithatwist.com/mobile-al/
